Kaisercraft cottage Rose number 2

IMG_0595 (Medium)Today we start a series of cards that I made with kaisercraft cottage Rose paper collection and matching collectables.This first one is a wedding card – I used a kaisercraft die for the sentiment and die cut it from stampin up silver cardstock.( this set of kaisercraft dies are brilliant – they have anniversary, engagement, birthday and congratulations all in the one set – brilliant value).The flowers are green tara and prima,and the silver thread is stampin up. I punched the leaves with my martha stewart leaf punch. This one is a favourite of mine! I was hoping to get into the craft room and make some more cards for my boxes, but I have a few orders to do, and I am picking up my new stampin up catalogue from my sister today, so will probably spend my spare time studying it and making an extensive wish list! Til tomorrow….

My Minds eye fancy That 5 and 6 wedding…

IMG_7235 (Medium)IMG_7236 (Medium)Here are the last two cards i made with My Minds eye Fancy that ( for now anyway!)My favourite is the bottom one, the paper is foiled, and I fussy cut some bunting and a gold heart, and added some of that beautiful gold twine and sequins . I have managed to spend a bit more time in the craft room, before I have to stop and elevate my leg, so I am feeling much happier! til tomorrow….

My Minds eye fancy that 4 wedding..

IMG_7233 (Medium)Today we are back to My Minds Eye Fancy That collection, this wedding card also using the matching journalling cards. I fussy cut the heart and arrow out of cards I didn’t want to use.The rest is just layering, and I used a corner punch from stampin up to cut the fancy corners.Today is a very muggy humid day here in Adelaide, and I have made plans to meet a friend for lunch – my first outing since my knee op, I am looking forward to getting out and about!Til tomorrow…

My minds eye fancy that number 3…wedding..

IMG_7231 (Medium)This one is a favourite because I got to use so much lace ! I wrapped it around the dress image I had fussy cut from a piece of the patterned paper ( my minds eye fancy that),and also fussy cut the mans suit as well. I am back in the craft room, just for short visits, but it’s amazing how much better I feel when i have been in there! til tomorrow…..

My Minds Eye Fancy That…1..

IMG_7237 (Medium)A complete change from christmas cards… wedding cards! The paper collection is My Minds Eye Fancy that, and I have half a dozen celebration type cards to show over the next few days. This paper is foiled, so didn’t need much embellishing – the journalling cards that go with the collection are great for toppers, and all I added to this one was some gold string/twine..this card is for our friends wedding this weekend( I may miss it due to the whole knee thing, but the rest of my family will go).I have gathered my supplies for my January classes and all ready to head into the craft room, I am ok as long as I stop each hour and elevate the leg for equivelant time so it’s getting much better! Today is a terribly hot windy dusty day here, and I am glad I am inside! til tomorrow…..

graphic 45 Le’Amour wedding card

IMG_2942 (Medium)Yesterday we attended the wedding of some friends, ( it was lovely), and I made this special card for them.The paper collection is Graphic 45 Le’Amour, and I did some fussy cutting and layering, and used one of the journalling cards from the same collection at the base of the card.The Bee in the heart up in the top corner is there because one half of the couple is called Bea, and I thought it added a very personal touch! she can take it off the card and keep it as a memento of the day if she wants. Til tomorrow…..

Three more Wedding cards

IMG_6532 (Medium)IMG_6537 (Medium)IMG_6536 (Medium)Here are the final three of my wedding card series – the top two cards are made with kaisercraft on this Day paper collection, and the bottom card is a mix of papers I found in my drawer, and prima flowers and some punched leaves. I think the flowers on the top two are also Prima, and of course ribbon and lace used liberally on all cards! Today I have been putting together some Prima doll stamp cards, and mulling over ideas for my July classes. can’t believe I am already thinking about july – where is this year going? Til tomorrow…..

wedding cards.

IMG_6524 (Medium)IMG_6527 (Medium)IMG_6531 (Medium)I will apologise for the quality of the photos first thing – we had terrible trouble with the light – and have discovered that morning is a much better time than afternoon for taking photos in my dining room!The first card I have posted twice as neither photo is really clear, but hopefully with the two of them you get the gist! I heat embossed in silver the stampin up marry me stamp, and did some embossing with a cuttlebug hearts embossing folder. I added prime flowers,leaves, martha stewart leaf punched leaves,and a ribbon bow to finish. the second card is a crossover front card again embossed with the cuttlebug embossing folder, gold heat embossed sentiment, and assorted flowers, leaves and pearls to finish. I will show a couple more wedding cards next time – I had to make a few for a commission. I taught a great class this morning, always good to see my ladies, and now I will have to start thinking about what to cook for tea…Til tomorrow…..

Cuttlebug Wedding card idea

IMG_0864 (Medium)This is a card very similar to one of the cards my ladies made in a class last month.All white cardstock, and a piece of white cardstock run through a hearts embossing folder. For the cake I cut 3 squares – 5cm,4cm,and 3 cms and rounded the top corners of each, then stuck them together along the top edges of the squares. Mount on the card front with foam pads,add ribbon and punched flowers, some kaisercraft pearls,your own sentiment and this is a simple wedding card done!Off to work I go… til tomrrow…..

Kaisercraft xo number 1

IMG_8505 (Medium)In the spirit of valentines day yesterday , for the next few days I am going to put up some cards suitable for weddings,engagements, and anniversaries over the next few days made with kaisercrafts’ recent release xo ( funny name!)Todays card was made with a piece of the paper from the 6″ pad, and a collectables from the matching pack. the red heart was punched, and I added a little flower,pearls ( one appears to have dropped off – will have to replace that!)and a ribbon bow. Absolutely too hot here to do anything but laze around reading a good book. Til tomorrow….
