Kaisercraft Little One 2..

IMG_9543 (Medium)Kaisercraft Little one paper collection – the 6″ pad and matching collectables with a touch of ribbon! I really enjoyed playing with this collection, although i have only made a few cards so far, they are very different from my usual vintage style baby cards. Love the colours! today I am finally enjoying some time in the craft room, finding my chriatmas mojo. It’s all coming back to me! The weather here is very distracting, the sun is shining, the bees are buzzing about and blossom is exploding on some of the fruit trees, it’s lovely just sitting out in the garden feeling the sun on my face! til tomorrow….

A Quick and Easy baby Card

IMG_3601 (Medium)I made this card for a challenge that we run each month at the craft chop I teach at. The challenge was to use this silver embossed paper on a card with the theme wings and things ( It’s from kaisercraft After Five range) and I made a few different cards using it. For this one I used a stampin Up stamp – Bringing Baby and silver embossed the image. The words are from another stampin Up set – baby Prints,as is the pink ruffled ribbon. I love the extra wide lace under the ribbon – I picked it up at a haberdashery store.back at work today, long hours for the next 3 days, so no crafting for me tonight! 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!

Baby Girl cards

I made these Baby Girl cards a little while ago, but forgot to post them – The one on the left is a box style card, and both cards use a scrap of Bo Bunny paper I had left over from a collection I once bought. The Bear is a Hot off the press stamp which I stamped a couple of times onto pink patterned paper and then cut out and paper pieced  to achieve a 3d effect. I mounted it on a Spellbinders picot edge cirlce die in white. The rest of the card was easy – just some flowers,ribbons and buttons to complete the look! Til tomorrow….

Girl Baby Tee

Todays card is the girl version of  a design I did for baby boys using my Stampin Up jumbo baby tee wheel. I rolled it out onto Pink Piroutte cadstock and then cut out 3 of the rompers for the card. I also used pretty in pink and whisper white cardstock. I ran the white through my cuttlebug with the swiss dots folder. and added a ribbon. Thats it! Looking forward to getting into the craft room tonight, as yesterday was a non crafting day, and I’m missing it! Til tomorrow…..
