IMG_2846 (Medium)IMG_2847 (Medium)A break from pretty patterned papers, and a couple of cards made using different techniques. The top card is a base made from stampin up cardstock ( mossy meadow) and a new kaisercraft christmas tree die which i die cut from glitter cardstock. I decorated the tree with small baubles fussy cut from a piece of stampin up home for christmas designer paper. The second card is coloured with copics, and the stamp is one from C.C.Designs called candle light. a ribbon bow and sentiment stamped with a stampin up curly cute stamp and that one was done! what a busy weekend, but off now to the craft room for an hour or two to relax a little bit! til tomorrow….

using scraps for christmas…

IMG_2945 (Medium)IMG_2946 (Medium)After I had made a few of the previous card ( with the window die-cut)  I was left with lots of little white square off cuts, and never one to miss an opportunity i came up with these two cards to use them up. I fussy cut lots of little images from the Stampin Up home for Christmas paper,and arranged them on the squares. Some I left flat and some I mounted with 3d foam pads. A really easy way to use up the scraps! Great class today, we did gate fold cards using the gorgeous kaisercraft silver bells paper, and all the ladies enjoyed themselves, always a good thing! Til tomorrow….

Kaisercraft silver bells number 1.

IMG_2854 (Medium)Today we make a start on my Kaisercraft Silver Bells collection. I have made a lot with this collection, so we will probably divide the viewing into a few groups over the next few weeks so as not to bore you all to tears!I bought the 6″ pad, a sheet each of the 12 x 12 papers( one of them is a whole sheet of baubles which I fussy cut out) and a packet of the collectables. This particular card is stampin up cardstock,a layer of 12 x 12 paper, and a couple of the collectables. I inked all my edges with tea dye distress ink, and added a piece of ribbon and lace to the bottom. The sentiment is from a piece of the 12  x 12 paper.Most of these cards will be kept for my personal use as I really love this paper! Til tomorrow…..
