Kaisercraft Letters to Santa…7 and 8

_MG_9849 (Medium)_MG_9851 (Medium) Another Gatefold card today, using papers from the 6″ pad, some pretty lace and a couple of Kaisercraft die cut Christmas trees which I embossed with Nuvo gold embossing powder. The bottom card has another two Die cut trees, this time just touched with some Kindyglitz, and I hand cut a bit of a hilly background from white glitter card. the collectables on this card are from the Letters to Santa range. Til tomorrow…..

Kaisercraft Letters to Santa 1 and 2…

_MG_9843 (Medium)_MG_9844 (Medium)After a short break we are back to Christmas Cards! This series is a big one so i am going to post these ones 2 at a time. The paper collection is Kaisercraft Letters to santa, and I purchased the 6’pad, 12 x 12 papers and the collectables so on most of these cards you will see a bit of all these elements.  The top card is 6″ pad on the base, collectables in the corners and the image is  from a piece of 12 x 12 paper fussy cut and inked around the edges with tea dye distress ink. I foiled a piece of kaisercraft wooden flourish with green foil and added red berries with some Nuvo drops. I used the same products on the second card with the addition of ribbon and lace. We have had some lovely weather here this week, so I have spent a little bit of time sitting in the garden enjoying the sun on my face, but today I am going to do some seriuos die cutting of flowers and leaves because I want to master the art of flower shaping..I think that is something I could do in the evening while watching tv, and it will put my many flower dies to good use too…Til tomorrow….

Kaisercraft Christmas Jewel number 6…

_MG_4598 (Medium)I covered my base card with a piece of Kaisercraft Christmas jewel 12 x 12 paper -this particular paper was silver embossed with lots of seasonal words, so didn’t need too much decorating… so I just added a die cut circle ( in gorgeous purple glitter cardstock) a collectable from the pack, and a Kaisercraft wooden flourish which i embossed with mu Go Press  and foil machine. The sentiment is from the sticker sheet from the same collection and I mounted it on some white cardstock  and popped on the card with foam pads. Today I picked up my new kaisercraft christmas collection called Letters to Santa, and I have spent a lovely afternoon fussy cutting lots of pieces ready for more Christmas cards. Til tomorrow…..

Kaisercraft Christmas jewel number 5

_MG_4597 (Medium)Todays card is interesting because it uses some of the strips of offcuts from papers from the 6″ pad used on other cards. A great way to use up scraps. The decoration is from the kaisercraft christmas Jewel collection, and the greeting is from the sticker sheet and layered onto more scrap paper. I love the colours of this papr collection, and today we got in the september Kaisercraft releases which are both Christmas paper collections and I love the red/green vintage collection so that will be my buy for this month! Til tomorrow….

_MG_4594 (Medium)Finally today we make a start on this years Christmas makes, and first up is a folding box of reindeers! The papers for this first series is Kaisercraft Christmas Jewel, and a lot of this collection is already foiled. I bought the 6″ pad, collectables , sticker sheet and a couple of sheets of the 12 x 12 paper. The collectable pack had some reindeer and I had a punch from Stampin Up which I used to punch out a few more in silver foil and glitter cardstock.The little reindeers on the front flap were from the Kaisercraft chipboard pieces box and I foiled them with my Go Press and foil machine. i will be back tomorrow with more Christmas! til tomorrow….

Christmas cards started…2017…

_MG_9105 (Medium)_MG_9106 (Medium)Here are the other two cards I made for my group Christmas in July challenge..I hadn’t been out to the Craft room annex ( shed) for my Christmas stash so really used what was to hand in the craft room, and I had been making lessons with some Kaisercraft dies, and I always have a bit of glitter paper in the craft room.  The stitched oval is a Paper Rose die, and I die cut the bauble on the top card and foiled it through the Go Press and Foil machine as I was experimenting with that new toy at the time. The rest was just assorted bling on my desk. Its a lazy kind of afternoon this afternoon after a busy morning at work, and I am going to have a bit of a sit down with a good book today! Til tomorrow….
