here are two more cards made with kaisercraft scrapyard paper collection, and matching collectables. On the top card I have stamped and heat embosed a vintage car from stampin up guy greetings stamp set,added some masculine trim and layered the collectables on top of each other for the sentiment ( the great cog shaped ones on the bottom had sentiments that I didnt want to use, so this was a great way to add more interest). The bottom card makes use of the identity strip across the bottom of one of the 12 by 12 sheets ( which had the handy birthday greeting), and again I have used the collectables as the feature on this one. day off today, so did the grocery shopping, a doctors appointment, and a quick run down to Paper Flourish to check out new papers etc for upcoming lessons. I saw the new kaisercraft releases for June ..Beautiful, particularly secret garden which is just gorgeous! Til tomorrow….

A couple of special family makes
two cards today that I made with specific people in mind – that doesn’t happen often ,ususally I am making cards for classes,orders or craft fairs.The top card was for my sons’ birthday. the stamp set is from stampin up ( Guy greetings),as is the designer paper and I coloured the image with copics.My boys and husband run a wrestling company and gym so this was perfect for Daniel.The bottom card was for a kitchen tea,so I made an apron and popped a recipe card ( paper and recipe card by graphic 45 – home sweet home) in the apron pocket.Today I taught a lesson over at the retirement village, and enjoyed afternoon tea with my ladies.My sister came along to help and she gave me the new Stampin Up catalogue so I am looking forward to a night in front of the heater with my pen and notepad compiling my wishlist!

Stampin Up Guy Greetings stamp set number 2…
As promised, the bottom card shows what I did with the extra hat and mustache I die cut with Sizzix top hats and Mustaches die set. So simple – only added googly eyes and a stamped banner greeting. the patterned paper was on my table,( not sure what company )and the cardstock was stampin up early espresso. For the top card I took inspiration from pinterest -when I buy a new stamp set I always have a look to see what other people are doing with it, and the first card made is usually a variation on one of these ideas, to get me into the swing of working with the stamp set. I find after the first card the ideas come naturally thick and fast! so, inspired by pinterest, but with a few different elements. I added some twine,stamped in early espresso ink ( stampin Up) and the cardstock is also stampin up – early espresso, sahara sand, and ivory confetti ( sadly the last one is retired, so no longer available). No craft room today – We are off out looking for new floor coverings… til tomorrow….
