Kaisercraft Pitter Patter Number 1

IMG_5483 (Medium)

A couple of months ago kaisercraft brought out a new range of baby paper called Pitter Patter. It is gorgeous, and can be used for more than just baby cards, but I started off making a few baby boy cards with with it and this one is the first. I used a piece of patterned paper from the 6″ pad, and some of the matching collectables. I inked all my edges with Stampin up ink – Pool party, and added 2 white ribbon bows. Til tomorrow…..

Crate paper Little Boy Blue 8

This is the last in my Crate Paper little Boy Blue series. Tomorrow we will move on – possibly more christmas! Buttons and bakers twine were added.Handily enough the paper was printed with the word baby which I cut into a banner.The tags were also printed on the paper, so it was just a matter of cutting them out and layering onto each other. It has been a day of finishing off projects in the craft room, and tomorrow I look forward to a full day  with no interruptions in there working on some new designs. Til tomorrow…

It’s a boy/girl cards

Todays cards are it’s a boy/ girl cards made with Stampin up baby prints stamp set,and stampin up pink piroutte and bashful blue cardstock and inks. I added assorted flowers,buttons and ribbon for some interest. I used my tim holtz emboss diffuser number 2 to create the unembossed circle in the centre of the cards so that I could stamp on the white cardstock, and still have the embossing around the stamped image. I do like this gadget and must investigate the other diffusers in this product line.The other thing I am looking for is a die which cuts a window with a window ledge – if anyone knows the name of this die I would really appreciate the information! Til tomorrow….

Chest of Drawers Baby cards

Since i taught this card in a lesson last month I have had a lot of positive feedback on it, with many comments from mu ladies saying they have made quite a few more for other people. I think I posted previously the one we made, but since then I have experimented a little and turned them into baby cards, which is what is shown here. The cardstock is Stampin Up pretty in Pink, Bashful blue and whisper white, and I have used buttons and candiworks candi for the drawer handles. I think what people like is the shape at the bottom, which I achieved by using a labels 17 ( although in my class it was a labels 16, but any spellbinders label die with the shaped top will give you the same look) . You fold your cardstock in half and pop the die just on the bottom of the two thicknesses of card, and there you have a nice shaped piece of furniture!.No crafting for me tonight as I have another class to teach – two in one day – it’s great!

Little darlings 4

Welcome to my new subscriber! Today is the final in my Graphic 45 little darlings series for now. I have added lace and ribbon, and stamped the greeting with Stampin Up Petite pairs, and four frames stamps before punching out with the matching decorative punch. Ink used was stampin up Baja Breeze. Today is my last day of holidays, and I have spent a little bit of it working towards my goal of using up at least one of my paper collections. It is a bigger job than I thought… I have made 18 more cards with my Kaisercraft English Rose  bits and pieces, and still there are more cards to made with it.. I am thinking I might take the rest with me on Friday to the Mothers day card marathon and let the ladies finish it for me! Now I must go and dig out my uniform and find my lunchbox, why do holidays go so quickly? Til tomorrow….

This card made itself – Graphic 45 Little darlings paper, and a little bit of ribbon, nothing easier! No card making today – I have been visiting Mum and dad at the retirement village, and now it’s tea time. I may go into the craft room later, but it will be to gather bits and pieces together for our big marathon on Friday to make mothers day cards for the troops.Til tomorrow….

It is Lobster season so one night we had a lovely lobster meal, and I spent a lot of time walking the beach and relaxing…. lovely! Today’s card was made using my cuttlebug machine to make the embellishments.

It’s my Birthday today, so I am now going to see what surprise my family have planned for my dinner.. (if any!) til tomorrow…..
