My Minds Eye In Bloom.

_MG_4266 (Medium) A natural progression from yesterdays card where I had used My Minds Eye In Bloom patterned paper as the background layer is today’s card which uses all My Minds Eye In Bloom paper. I die cut a gold foil heart, and added black lace and gold ribbon. Everything else is from the paper collection. Yesterday was very productive day in the craft room. I planned out my march classes, and started to experiment with some irridescent medium and stencils to make my own background layers that have a bit of a sheen.This is a work in progress but will share when i have something to show you!

Kaisercraft a Touch of Gold special age cards

IMG_7565 (Medium)I have started to make age cards as I often get asked for them and it would be good to have a few pre -made, so you may see a few of them until I build up my stocks, of course if you are casing you don’t have to add the numbers. I have a terrific number die ( Kaisercraft) which I have been using on all my age cards, and I like to die cut the numbers out of glitter or foil card.The paper on today’s cards is from Kaisercraft called A Touch of Gold,and the die cut I used for the banner is by Kaisercraft as well. I added some gold sequins,and  Stampin up gold twine. I did go into the craft room yesterday and spent a few hours preparing my February lessons, so just have a village lesson to sort out and I am up to date for a couple of weeks! til tomorrow….

Kaisercraft fiesta 5, the last for now…

IMG_0700 (Medium)This is the last Kaisercraft Fiesta card I made, and I have enjoyed showing these bright and beautiful colours! I will revisit this paper again as I still have some left. this one used the 6″ paper pad, collectables and the labels were from a piece of the 12 x 12 paper ( the only piece of that size I bought).I just had to add a ribbon bow and a sprinkle of sequins to finish.I went back to work yesterday after quite a few weeks off with my knee, and I have to say it was tough. I came home and had to ice my knee and put heat on my back, but today I am much better – have come home with no aches and pains so I am truly grateful for that! I would like to thank all my blog friends for your best wishes and concern.One more day then 5 days off! yay! til tomorrow….
