stampin up Winter Frost….

IMG_2817 (Medium)More christmas cards made with Stampin Up Winter Frost designer paper.The card on the left uses a stampin up reindeer punch, while on the right I have used the mosaic punch again, but this time punched three, and folded them in half then stuck them together to give that 3d look. I also usedĀ  my martha stewart lace doily punch, and stampin up ribbons and cardstock. Today I have finished an order, made my sons birthday card and now I am back to a few more christmas cards, but I have an idea for a scrapbook layout buzzing around my head so i am going to do that before it drives me nuts! Til tomorrow…

Stampin Up christmas 2013

IMG_2816 (Medium)An early post today – These cards were made with primarily Stampin Up products. I have searched everywhere for my catalogue so that I could tell you the name of the designer paper, but to no avail, so will find out from my sister and edit this post at a later date to give you that info.* One of my followers – Kay has let me know that the stampin up designer paper is called Winter Frost.Lovely set of papers in this collection!Thank You kay. The cardstock is also stampin up, and I used the stampin up mosaic punch to punch out my bauble shapes.I punched them out of glitter cardstock. The colours I used here make a nice change from green and red for christmas don’t you think?Til tomorrow….

Definitely the last of Holly Bright

IMG_2815 (Medium)This is the last of my holly Bright paper collection. I have made an amazing amount of cards with this paper, but it’s time to move on! I used the 6″ pad for these two cards, and some Kraft and stampin up cardstock. I also used some of the collectables, and the greetings were from a 12 x 12 sheet.Ribbon and bling added the finishing has been all about housework, but i am about to head into the craft room to do some creating! til tomorrow….

Kaisercraft Holly Bright 12 and 13

IMG_2814 (Medium)A bit of everything from the Holly Bright collection on these two cards – the background papers are from the 6″ pad, the greetings from the sheet of 12 x12 paper, and some collectables thrown in. I added some xmas type flowers and ribbon and bling to finish. The cardstock is from stampin up.Today i have been making bright summery cards, when I should be having a last push at the christmas cards, but christmas still seems a bit far away to me for some reason this year – I think it’s because I still have a couple of birthdays before then and I can’t think seriously about christmas until they are past….til tomorrow….

kaisercraft holly bright number 11

IMG_2813 (Medium)Number 11 in my Kaisercraft Holly bright paper series, and here I have used the 12 x 12 papers. the bird is from the collectables, and I just added a little ribbon bow and some kindyglitz to finish. So glad the working week is over for me – I have struggled this week with this coughy coldy thing,and hopefully a couple of days at home will knock it on the head once and for all! Til tomorrow….

Kaisercraft Holly Bright 9 and 10

IMG_2811 (Medium)Todays cards were made with Kaisercraft Holly Bright papers. I made these ones with the idea that you could enclose a gift voucher in them, so the front layer is peeled back and I used my Memory Keepers envelope maker to make a small envelope – I used the smallest size on the board for this.the greetings were cut out from a sheet of matching paper – this sheet is brilliant – it has 36 greeting on it so great value.The cards didn’t need any more in the way of decoration so I just added a little bling.

IMG_9383 (Medium)Here it is, the last in my graphic 45 12 days of christmas series. I think I have combined everything on this one – layering, fussy cutting, lace and chipboard pieces.I have loved using this paper, still have some left, but today I have been working on more christmas cards using up my kaisercraft paper. I must concentrate on using up some older papers, as I have run out of room to buy more so there may be some posts where we revisit some old favourites! Til tomorrow….

graphic 45 12 days of christmas number 9

IMG_9380 (Medium)For this christmas card I used the 8 x8 pad from Graphic 45 – 12 days of christmas, and the matching chipboard pieces. Quite a bit of fussy cutting and some layering on this one!a bit of kindyglitz to finish, and no ribbon for a bit of a change…one more in this series, and then we will move on to something else.I have been busy with house work today, but I am off now to the craft room for a couple of hours – some lessons to set up for january, seems so far away but will be with us before we know it.Til tomorrow…

IMG_9377 (Medium)IMG_9378 (Medium)I decided to show these cards together as each pair uses the same images from the 12 x 12 sheet of graphic 45 12 days of christmas papers,but I did something different with each one.I have used some of the matching chipboard pieces from the same range, and added ribbon, bling,and bakers twine as well as a liberal amount of fussy cutting and layering.taught a class toady, and my family are all out tonight putting on a wrestling show so it’s off to the fish and chip shop now for me , then an uninterruptedĀ  night of crafting to follow… bliss….. til tomorrow…..
