graphic 45 artisan style 2 and 3

IMG_5123 (Medium)IMG_5125 (Medium)Two more cards made with graphic 45 Artisan style. I didn’t use too much embellishments with this paper – it really didn’t need it – there is so much going on  -. I had two pieces of the paper I used on the top card so I fussy cut small elements of the flower and popped them on top with 3d foam pads, and did the same with the bottom card – the chimney and front door is a second piece over the top held on with foam pads. I cut some letters out of anther piece of paper from the same collection for the new home wording, and stuck on a key embellishment. A nice  relaxing weekend , very cold here though, so not too much happening in the craft room – very cold through there!! til tomorrow….

Graphic 45 French Country New Home..

IMG_2796 (Medium)I have found a whole folder of cards that I made last month that I haven’t posted yet. They are a big mix of all sorts, so we will get started – This one is Graphic 45 French Country papers, and I layered 3 in decreasing sizes ( distressing as I went) and added the last one with the image on top. I have a box of great charms, so dug through that to find the keys which I tied together with some string.I had a lovely lesson with my favourite ladies today, and have done a little relaxing this afternoon just finishing up a few projects before I head back to work next week. this weekend will be spent working on some december classes.Til tomorrow….

October Afternoon farm Girl number 10 and 11

IMG_1175 (Medium)New Home cards today! These two cards were made with October Afternoon Farm Girl papers. The one on the left has some interesting layering on it, which used up a little bit of the scrappy off cuts I had on the table left from previously made cards.I fussy cut some of the little flowers from another sheet of farm girl paper, and added some ric rac and Kaisercraft rhinestones.The houses were from the same kraft sheet as my previous post, I have had them for at least 2 years, and can’t reemember what brand they were, but they match this paper beauitully, and I have managed to use up a little more stash! I taught a class this morning, and I picked up some Tim Holtz glass bottles. I am going to make my husband a Valentines day card and put one on the card with a message inside it – I will post it when I have done it. Til tomorrow….

New Home card

I found a group of cards that I made a couple of months ago that I haven’t posted, so I thought I should put them up before we start on all the cards I make using next months new releases.Quite a few of my favourite companys have papers coming out – I won’t know where to start!Tonights card is os simple using kaisercraft Fine and Sunny 6″ paper pad and a few of the matching collectables to make a little scene. Perfect for a New Home card.Quick post tonight, as it’s shopping night – been a very busy week, and haven’t been in the craft room, and can’t see myself getting in there before the weekend . Til tomorrow…..

New Home

Tonights card uses Stampin Up cardstock (early espresso- this is fast becoming a favourite colour), and the background paper is Kaisercraft Undercover from the Secret Bird society patterned paper range. The greeting is from Inique Boutiique patterned papers, and the key and house images are from K&Co Lifes Journey stamp collage embossed paper. The gorgeous brad is from stampin up. There is a little glimmer mist  (old mist) sprayed on the card. I am suffering from a bad back just now, so not much card making happening this week so far which is frustrating as I still haven’t made my own xmas cards yet!Oh well, til tomorrow….
