Graphic 45 portrait of a Lady number 5…

_MG_7043 (Medium)I have the morning off today as I am teaching tonight,so I thought I would post the last of my Graphic 45 Portrait of a Lady cards ( for now, of course I will come back to this paper at a later date!) Today’s card has a black card base, and the image is fussy cut from one of the 12 x 12 papers. There is a bundle of assorted flowers and punched leaves in the bottom corner. This one was a quick and easy card to put together, and sold at the craft fair along with all the other cards in this series. I had a lovely three days at the craft fair, catching up with like minded crafters, buying some supplies such as lace, and selling a lot of the cards I have made over the last year. This is great because i can start filling my boxes all over again for next year! Til tomorrow…..

_MG_7042 (Medium)Todays card is a fold I have been practising,and I will be teaching it next month, so I thought i had better get to grips with it myself! I   like it a lot and so you will see it pop up now and again, and once everything has quietened down here i will get Nathan to help me do a youtube clip to show you all how to make it. The paper collection here is Graphic 45 Portrait of a Lady, and I just added some flowers and greenery, a ribbon bow to decorate. Posts will be a little sporadic over the next week, until my craft fair is over, but I will post when I can, Til then ….

Graphic 45 Portrait of a lady….(2)

_MG_7041 (Medium)On my desk was some very thick acetate from packaging and it was perfect to make this card. I took a square blank card and chopped a large piece from the front middle section,and replaced it with the acetate, keeping cardstock at the bottom of the card for weight and balance.( I attached lace to this piece). The rest of the card was decorated with various pieces of patterned paper from the Graphic 45 range.. Portrait of a Lady.The front image was attached behind the acetate with very small glue dots. Although they are just visible they are not too noticable. I added lots of flowers and some punched greenery in the left corner. This is a favourite card and will be hard to sell! Today is going to be a day spent in the craft room, I haven’t had much time to get in there and just create lately so I am looking forward to it! til tomorrow…..

Portrait of a Lady number 1..

_MG_7040 (Medium) For todays card I used the new collection from Graphic 45 called Portrait of a Lady. I have only made a few cards so far with this series, but I haven’t put it away, it is waiting for me by my desk because I will get back to it once all my class cards are done, and next weeks fair is over for another year! This one has lots of layers of patterned paper, and some fussy cut roses ( from another of the 12 x 12 sheets), and little bottles also fussy cut. Along the bottom I stuck some frilled lace that I found in my stash, some kaisercraft beading and a ribbon bow. I used some kindyglitz on the roses for a bit of shimmer. Today I have brought home some gorgeous Bo Bunny papers for an upcoming class, but of course I had to buy some for myself, so I have plenty to keep me busy in the craft room! til tomorrow….
