papaya collage stampin up stamp set

IMG_8575 (Medium)Every now and again my ink pads call to me, and I stamp my heart out! This happened the other day with this stamp set from stampin Up. It’s called Papaya Collage, and all the stamped elements on this card ( except the sentiment and script in the background ) came from this set.I layered up a couple of pieces of cardstock,and stamped and fussy cut until I was happy with the result.I added a dove charm, ribbon bow and pearls to finish. Today has been another stamping day – christmas this time -and next week when I am on holidays Nathan and I will do some photoing.Til tomorrow….

Kaisercraft On This day number 9 – the very last!

IMG_4549 (Medium)The very last card in this series ( Kaisercraft On This day) is a card and a box. On the right is the box, left is the card. I used a piece of the 12 x 12 paper, collectables, lace, ribbon, and an assortment of flowerts for this one, and inked all my edges with spun sugar distress ink.Today has been a day of cooking, and cleaning but I have managed to spend an hour or so in the craft room making more cards with bo bunny primrose. These ones I will be able to photo, but not til next week as Nathan has been busy fixing other peoples malfunctioning computers! he is very in demand that boy! Til tomorrow….

Kaisercraft On This day 7 and 8

IMG_4548 (Medium)IMG_4550 (Medium)Two cards today, both using Kaisercraft On This day paper pad and collectables.The top card is still following the wedding themd, but the bottom card is a sympathy card. a lot of the images in this collection can be used for so many different themes. I have had a lovely day in the craft room – actually finished using one paper collection, tidied a little bit, ad then made a dozen Mothers day cards. Those ones won’t make it to my blog as I have had to put them straight into my lunch room boxes as people are already asking for them.I have also palyed alittle bit with my new bo bunny paper – took a card or two to settle into the swing of that paper but I am on a roll now! til tomorrow….

Kaisercraft On This day number 6

IMG_4547 (Medium)Kaisercraft On This day 6″paper pad and matching collectables. I have used a scalloped edge punch for the top layer, and wrapped my ribbon around that before sticking to the card front. A ribbon bow and some kindyglitz to finish! I saw the new kaisercraft papers today, but ( shock) I didn’t buy any!I must really be serious about using up the over abundance of paper in my craft room!I did however buy some sheets of the new bo bunny paper – Primrose. I fell in love with the pastel colours in that range , so hopefully will get into the craft room this weekend to make some Mothers day cards with it. Til tomorrow….

Kaisercraft On this day number 5

IMG_4546 (Medium)again this card could be used for a few different celebrations – Anniversary, wedding or engagement. The paper collection is Kaisercraft on this day, and I have used a bit of a 12 x 12 sheet for the background, and some collectables and ribbon. I rounded my corners on this one. quick post tonight, as tea is cooking as we speak! Til tomorrow…..

Kaisercraft On This day 4

IMG_4544 (Medium)Lots of layering on this one! Kaisercraft On This Day 6″paper pad, collectables, and the sentiment was from a bit of the 12 x 12 paper. This one would be suitable for wedding, engagement or anniversary card. I( just added a ribbon bow and kindyglitz to finish. I really like the subtle colours of this paper and can’t believe it took me so long to do anything with it! Til tomorrow….

Kaisercraft on This day number 2

IMG_4542 (Medium)A couple of weeks ago I decided I had to make some wedding, engagement and anniversary cards for my boxes( The fair I am doing in June is not far away now and I have to fill those boxes!)and I pulled out this paper – Kiasercraft On This day. Up til now I hadn’t done much with it, so I went to town and I have a few cards in this series to show you over thew next few days. For this card I used the 6″ paper pad, and matching collectaboles, as well as a lovely satin ribbon, and it’s all mounted on stampin  up cardstock. today meanwhile, I have dug deep into the paper archives looking for papers to make little girl cards, ( there’s not  much in there for this genre!)and I have made a dozen, which Nathan and I will photo tomorrow.Til tomorrow….

Porcelain rose number 15

IMG_8885 (Medium)I can’t beleive we are up to number 15 in this series! This paper  – kaisercraft Porcelain Rose truly inspired me! I think it was because there were a few different colourways in it, and I am particularly fond of this one – black ,white and red. The papers used here are from the 6″ pad, and i added a rose from the collectables, and a die cut heart which I ran through the cuttlebug in an embossing folder. I used some black lace and liquid pearls to finish. Today has been all about christmas with some new papers I bought yesterday, and tomorrow will be a big photo day to get them all onto the computer. Til tomorrow….

An Engagement card today..

IMG_5842 (Medium)I made an engagement card with Porcelain rose ( kaisercraft) paper and a couple of the matching collectables. The die used is Spellbinders floral oval, and I added daisy trim and clear rhinestones to finish. I do like the black white and red colour scheme on this one. I have been busy in the craft room today, with more than one project on the go  which is unusual for me – I do like to finish one ideas before I move on, but so many thoughts swirling around I had to get them all down and still have one colour scheme to try. lemon and grey – I think it will look ok but we will see! the other things I have been up to are two pieces of canvas art which are drying as we speak and quite a few cards using kaisercrafts new true Romance papers – gorgeous soft pastel colours on that one.Til tomorrow….

Engagement card – After 5

IMG_5820 (Medium)Todays card is an Engagement card made with Kaisercraft After 5 papers from the 6′ paper pad, spellbinders Floral ovals die, and just a bit of ribbon, lace,and some flowers ( Prima) and pearls. I have been  in the craft room a little while today, just finishing up some projects – all my lessons for July are done and I am back to trying to use up some older paper collections to make room for more new stuff!
