The next 2 cards in my Kaisercraft Silent night series.The top cadr uses papers from the paper pad,and the bottom card has layers using 12 x 12 papers and both cards rely heavily on the images from the collectables pack. Everything is inked with tea dye distress ink and some bows to finish for texture.I am having a very busy week at work, but hope to get into the craft room for an hour this afternoon just for a litle relaxation! til tomorrow….
The other Kaisercraft Christmas collection I purchased was this one – Silent Night. It is the traditional colours of red and Green, and some lovely vintage images.The first two cards I made are these two side stepper cards. I have done a youtube clip for the measurements of my side stepper cards, because I like them to fit into a C6 envelope.You can find the link to my youtube channel on the right hand side of my blog, or just search Helens Card designs in youtube to find it!The Christmas trees on the cards are from the collectables pack from the same range, but before I stuck them onto the card I traced around them onto scrap cardstock and cut them out to use as templates because I really like the size and shape of them So one of the green trees is a collectable and one is cut from patterned paper using my new template!Lace , ribbon and bling for the finishing touches.Til tomorrow…..
This is the last of the Kaisercraft Christmas wishes series for this year. I will put the rest away to start me off next year.The top card is another gatefold, while the bottom card uses up a few scraps punched into hexagons, inspired by the shape of the greeting which came from a piece of the 12 x 12 paper.The trim on both cards is from Stampin Up. I have cleared my craft desk of all things christmas for today and I am going to explore the possibilities with my new purchases…I think Graphic 45 to start!Happy Crafting, til tomorrow…..
On my desk there is a myriad of bits and pieces, leftover from other projects, or die cuts etc given to me by my crafty friends, and I try to use them as they appear but sometimes the pile grows and grows! I am determined to get to the bottom of this pile and see my desk again,so todays card uses one of these bits.It is a die cut, I think it’s a cuttlebug die and embossing folder in one, and I have backed it with some patterned paper from kaisercraft Christmas wishes,and decorated with more fussy cutting from the same range.I survived my week of night shift, (glad it’s only once a year though) and as a reward to myself I popped into Paper Flourish yesterday and bought some new papers. Bo Bunny, Graphic 45 and kaisercraft all featured in my shopping basket!The Kaisercraft Ooh La La especially is worth checking out, I love it! Til tomorrow….
Don’t these reindeers make you smile?I used an embossing folder for the background ( stampin Up) and ripped up white cardstock to make the foreground. I added aline of glue across the top of each layer and stuck on loose glitter.Fussy cut reindeers from stampin up home for christmas designer paper, and added die cut leaves and sentiment with kaisercraft dies. A sprinkle of red kaisercraft rhinestones and these which were a joy to make were done! Til tomorrow….
Stampin Up Home for Christmas designer papers, and cardstock. These ones are very simple with just a little layering and fussy cutting from the papers. The sentiment on the top card is by Kaisercraft and the bottom sentiment is a new stampin up stamp.Very quick and easy! til tomorrow….
We are still with Stampin Up designer papers from last year ( home for Christmas). One sheet was covered with the cutest reindeers, and I spent a couple of pleasant evenings cutting them all out! I cut the paper and cardstock into banners, wrapped some silver twine around the top, and stuck it all onto a card made from stampin up cardstock. The sentiment is stamped with an older stampin up stamp set, with a couple of kaisercraft rhinestones added too! We have a long weekend here, and i have quite a few orders to make as well as some family birthdays to keep me busy as well…Til tomorrow….
This is the very last of my October Afternoon Make it Berry collection. I have loved revisiting this collection,but what is left of it has gone into the surplus to requirements bag, as I can’t keep everything.My craft room is becoming a fire hazard! I made this card as a DL size card ( cardstock 21 x 21 cm and folded in half) to accommodate the tall reindeer image. A bit of offset layering, lace and ribbon and this one is ready to go! A new series tomorrow, Til then ….
Always a challenge photographing gatefold cards, hopefully you all get the gist of these ones!Gatefold shapes are fast becoming my favourite as it’s so easy to decorate inside as well,just a piece of matching paper and a greeting .The paper here is the same as last post – October afternoon Make it berry. A release from a few years ago, and I just used some shiny red ribbon and some rhinestones for texture.tomorrow will be the last card with this collection, then onto something new! Still have a lesson to plan out today in the craft room,then I will be back to more Christmas cards! Til tomorrow….
Todays card is the last one ( for now) in my Kiasercraft Christmas wishes series. The pretty background paper is from the 6″ pad,as is the greeting, and I fussy cut a pointsetta from a piece of 12 x 12 paper , layered it up, and popped it on top of a couple of collectables.Tomorrow we will take a little break from christmas makes,but for now I am off to put my feet up after a busy day at work! Til tomorrow….
