Here is my last ( I promise…maybe) Kaisercraft Ooh La La card. 17 cards with this paper!This one is the easiest one yet.A piece of 12 x 12 cut apart paper with a bow made from some of the 6″ pad paper. The bow was done with my Stampin Up bow punch. Most of the cards in this series were made when I had injured my shoulder and couldn’t use my die cutting machine,so I really relied on the papers, it was an interesting exercise. Tomorrow i start my new job at Paper Flourish. So looking forward to it, I can’t wait, surrounded by temptation all day!But for today, it’s grocery shopping and quite a hot day so a quiet day inside. Til tomorrow…..
Kaisercraft Ooh La La 14….
It appears we are back to some Kaisercraft Ooh La La makes!I drew out a tea cup template and cut it out of some of the patterned paper from the 6″ pad,and decorated with orange ric-rac,ribbon, Green Tara flowers lace and a collectable butterfly from the matching set.The sentiment was from the 6″ pad, and I mounted it on some blue cardstock. Things are back to normal here, all unpacking and washing done, caught up with Mum and Dad, inspected the garden, and today I am looking forward to sitting in the craft room after nearly 2 weeks away from it! Til tomorrow….
Graphic 45 Botanical tea number 9 ( the last… for now)
Here is the last of my Graphic 45 Botanical Tea ( for now) . For this last one I edged all my pieces with Tea Dye distress ink, did some fussy cutting, and used some yellow liquid pearls and kindyglitz to finish.Some of the flowers were 3″d with foam pads.I have spent this afternoon in the craft room planning out one of my June lessons. A different kind of lesson for that month – it will be interesting to see what the ladies think of it. I have had great fun playing with a couple of new dies from couture creations. I am heading back there in a minute to do some stamping – haven’t done much of that lately, and I am feeling creative! til tomorrow….
Lady Rose number 4
A totally different card today compared to yesterdays clean and simple design! This is a card I made for our card club.The background paper is from the Kaisercraft Lady Rose 6″ pad, and I fussy cut all the flowers around the edges from another sheet from the same pad. I lightly inked the doily and added some of the matching collectables. I drew the bodice ( the paper there is a scrap of websters pages) added some lace for the skirt, and them embellished with flowers,pearls and ribbon. I had great fun creating this one – didn’t think too much about it – just cut and stuck! I have a couple of orders to do this weekend,then lots of new kaisercraft papert to play with – can’t wait!til tomorrow…..
Bo Bunny – The Avenues….
this one had me stumped- I had to go through all my paper collections to find the name! I have only done a couple of cards with it so that’s why it didn’t come to mind… anyway it is Bo Bunny The Avenues, and the bits and pieces on the card front are from the matching noteworthy collection. I distressed all the edges, and I have left it out on my table to do some more with it this evening. I have been working on xmas most of the day so will welcome a little break tonight! Til tomorrow….
Kaisercraft Porcelain Rose 16 .. the last…
This is the last in my Kaisercraft Porcelain Rose series – I am sure I must have used all this paper!! This card uses paper from the 6″ pad, and a couple of the collectables from the same range. I tied a few flowers together with ribbon to form a bunch of flowers and attached a charm to finish. Family day today so I haven’t been in the craft room, but I am heading there as soon as I have cooked some dinhner! Til tomorrow…..
Graphic 45 french Country
We havent finished with the true romance cards , but we will get back to them – Today I ran a class using Graphic 45 French Country papers, and I had forgotten how much I liked this collection of papers, so i couldn’t resist making some for myself ! For this card, I covered the whole base card with paper, and ran a strip of border paper across the bottom. The sentiment is cut out of some more of the paper, and I used a matching chipboard for the focal point. I have a huge bag of new papers here at my feet, and I can’t wait to have a good look at it all, so Til tomorrow….
Prima Lyric number 2
There were lots of great images on this paper ( prima Lyric) to fussy cut, and I have used a few of them on this card.I layered a couple of pieces of the patterned paper, and added a flower and seam binding bow to finish.I bought some new christmas paper today, so I will be in the craft room if anyone needs me! Til tomorrow….
Now and again I get out my inks and stamps, and go to town! For the next few days we will have a stamping special where I will show you what I have been working on lately.This one uses all stampin up – cardstock – pretty in pink,raspberry ripple and primrose petals. The stamp is from Serene Silhouettes stamp set and stamped in Raspberry ripple ink, and even the ribbon is stampin up! I die cut a circle through the top two layers of cardstock so that the lowest colour showed through, and I have just realised the embossing folder I used was not stampin up – it was a freebie off the front of a magazine. Had a lovely crafty afternoon with some other like minded ladies, swapped tips, saw what each other were working on, and enjoyed afternoon tea together – it was lovely after doing lessons back to back this week to just sit, craft and relax! Til tomorrow….
Stampin Up cottage Window
I named this post after the stamp set I used to create this card, but there is so much more going on! After I had fussy cut out the window I stuck it onto my card base which i had covered with a scrap of paper – it reminded me of wallpaper… then I made my chest of drawers using spellbinders label seventeen dies, and for the drwaers Modern Label punch ( stampin Up) and added liquid pearls for the drawer handles.I inked around all parts of the drawers with brown ink Then it was time to move on to the vase of flowers – a circle punched out with a 1 inch punch, and trimmed off top and bottom, and flowers and leaves punched out with various punches. I do like creating these type of scenery cards, and this one was a retirement village lesson, which all the ladies enjoyed! Tonight I plan to tackle some male themed cards, I have rediscovered my motorcycle stamp, and have some ideas…Til tomorrow….
