IMG_6291 (Medium)Another Thinking of you card using kaisercraft My Cherie paper collection. the background paper is from the 6″ pad, and the sentiment and butterfly are cut from 12 x 12 papers from the same collection, with a few flowers added.I rounded the right hand corners to fit in with the curved lines of the sentiment. Tomorrow i have a couple of thank you cards from the same collection, and then we will move on to some Mothers day cards as that is just around the corner.We have a lovely lovely weekend here weather wise,and I have spent some lovely hours  just sitting in the back yard in the sun, a lazy weekend!

Kaisercract Ma Cherie 8 and 9…

IMG_6289 (Medium)A change of pace today with a couple of thinking of you cards made with kaisercraft ma Cherie paper collection. I fussy cut the flower sprays from a sheet of 12 x 12 paper, and the lovely embossed paper on the background id from the 6 ” pad, as is the greeting and butterfly.very similar cards – subtle differences – the background papers are two different papers, and the cardstock used are two different shades of grey. This morning I was digging through my graphic 45 paper looking for special papers to use for a village lesson,and I need a lot of the same paper as my ladies want to learn how to make a bendy card and graphic 45 is the only paper I have in large quantities – mainly because once home with it I find it very difficult to cut into – I love it that much!Going through it all Ideas were springing from everywhere – I will never have enough time to make everything I want to, but at least I have realised the time has come to use this paper!So any spare time this weekend will be spent with Graphic 45!Til tomorrow….

A quick sympathy card

Todays’ card was one I taught over at the retirement village. I always keep sympathy cards simple. Stampin Up cardstock – white and bashful blue, and Stampin Up stamp set.I didn’t have a square stamp so I used a piece of foam offcut for the shape behind the flower. Quick post this morning, time for work…til tomorrow….IMG_9561 (Medium)

IMG_2435 (Medium)IMG_2436 (Medium)Kaisercrat secret garden. The top card has a piece 0f the 6″ pad as the background, and a piece from one of the 12 x 12 card fronts  trimmed down. I used a kaisercraft mannequin die and hand cut a dress from a piece of the 6″ pad.Added a collectable and some sequins to finish this one. For the bottom card – so simple – a piece of the 6″ pad and a collectable is all this one needed!punched butterfly, and sentiment and done. Freezing day here today, far too cold in the craft room,  so after a visit to Mum and dad’s this afternoon, it will be tea in front of the heater and Tv! til tomorrow….

Stampin Up Lotus Blossom stamp set

IMG_8560 (Medium)IMG_8561 (Medium)This stamp set from Stampin Up is a three step stamp set which means you stamp the flowers up in layers, laying the solid stamp down first in the lightest colour, and then the second stamp which has more petal detail second and the last layer which is really just highlighting in the darkest colour. The top card , which was inspired by a card I pinned to my pinterest board, uses all stampin up products including ribbon and patterned paper. The bottom cards have some cardstock punched with my martha stewart doily border punch. Nearly time to go to work, so til tomorrow……

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….
