Mum purchased this die by Kaisercraft and cut me a couple of shapes, and I couldnt resist teaming it up with my Stampin Up Starlight dies and stamps. The cardstock is Stamp[in Up,and the little snowflake bling was from Paper flourish – I have stocked up on these snowflakes so that I can start on Christmas cards earlier next year! Til tomorrow….
Continuing on with Prima Sweet peppermint,the top card makes use of the collectables pack which also had the sequins in it, and I slipped a little scrap glitter cardstock between the layers for some twinkle. The bottom card has a Christmas tree die cut with a kaisercraft die – I had just purchased this die and wanted to try it out, and I love it, but sadly it wasn’t too long after this that I injured my shoulder and all further die cutting went out the window, so this die will keep until next christmas! I am visiting Mum and dad today, with my sister as we do every weekend, but today I am taking a box of cardstock and dies and embossing folders and I will ask my mum and sister to do some die cutting for me as I have a large Christmas card order to prepare. Thankfully my Dr. tells me we are aiming for back to normal by christmas day! Til tomorrow….
Today we start a new series, Christmas cards made with Prima Sweet Peppermint.I purchased a few sheets of the 12 x 12 paper, and a bag of the chipboard collectables and for all the cards I made I only added some trim and kindyglitz for texture and sparkle.I edged around all my edges with Tea Dye distress ink as some of the background papers got lost next to each other, and inked edges helps solve that problem.This morning I am off to teach my class at Paper Flourish and I am so looking forward to catching up with everyone! Til tomorow….
The third and Final Village card was one made with almost all Stampin Up supplies. The Stamp set is Star of light and I also used the matching die set. I stamped little stamps in blue sky ink before running the layer through a stampin up embossing folder. This one is a very simple card with very little embellishment. I have managed to make a few cards over the last couple of days, pacing myself and staying right away from the die cutting machine!Thank goodness for Kaisercraft ooh La La paper collection – no need for dies with this collection! Til tomorrow….
We are still with Stampin Up designer papers from last year ( home for Christmas). One sheet was covered with the cutest reindeers, and I spent a couple of pleasant evenings cutting them all out! I cut the paper and cardstock into banners, wrapped some silver twine around the top, and stuck it all onto a card made from stampin up cardstock. The sentiment is stamped with an older stampin up stamp set, with a couple of kaisercraft rhinestones added too! We have a long weekend here, and i have quite a few orders to make as well as some family birthdays to keep me busy as well…Til tomorrow….
someAnother Gatefold card today with Kaisercraft Christmas wishes. Today I have used a bit of everything from the collection – 6″ pad for the layers, a piece of the 12 x 12 for the verse inside,some fussy cutting from a 12 x 12 paper for the baubles, as well as one of the collectable baubles, and another couple of collectables on the lower right hand side. This weekend I am looking forward to…doing some orders,making more christmas cards with some new papers,colouring my tim holtz crazy dogs..and finding my camera which has been missing for over a week, and I can’t take any photos in real time and upload them without it!If I haven’t found it by the end of the weekend I will have to buy a new one! Who knew I was so reliant on it? Til tomorrow….
