two more double z – fold cards just using a couple of bits of paper from Kaisercraft Mint Wishes collection. The pine cone on the top card pictured is a kaisercraft wooden piece which I foiled in chocolate through the Go Press and foil machine. The Baubles on the second card are fussy cut from a piece of the patterned paper from the collection.I have added a photo under my script to show you what I spent last evening doing! We got in some new Nuvo Products at paper Flourish and I just had to try them out.They are Nuvo glimmer paste and come in a range of colours, but I just picked up the clear and the gold, and so far I have tried it out on wooden pieces,painted on with a paintbrush, dabbed little bits ( mainly to clean my brush off) on flowers, and then I found a stencil, attached it to some cardstock and painted the glimmer paste through the stencil..this technique looks amazing! It dries in about 10 minutes, so no long waiting around for it to dry.
Quick post this afternoon! I have been busy working this week, so having been a bit lax on the posting front! Today has been another busy day with work this morning, and grocery shopping this afternoon, but I wanted to make a little bit of time to post the last Christmas 2017 series which is Kaisercraft Mint Wishes.Just a few cards in this series , I only bought 4 sheets of paper, including the sticker sheet, because the paper was perfect for my christmas double zig zag cards. For this first card I used the same sheet for both panels, fussy cut some baubles from the second sheet, a strip from the third sheet for the smaller zig zag, and a greeting from the sticker sheet mounted onto scrap white cardstock. It is a hot day here in Adelaide today, so I am off to cool down in the shower, then a seat for a little while under the air conditioner! til tomorrow…..
Another card made with Kaisercraft letters to santa, with the addition of a poinsetta die cut with paper Rose Poinsetta die, and a little branch of holly from a Kaisercraft die.I die cut an oval, edged it with tea dye ink matted some craft cardstock behind, and popped on a collectable from the kaisercraft letters to santa collection.The Noel sentiment is from the matching 6″ pad. It’s been a busy week and a busy morning, and I am aiming to clear the dining table of overspill projects from the craft room this morning, restore a bit of order! Til tomorrow….
Time for some fun with Christmas cards and this one has a couple of images I have had for years , which I printed onto copic paper and coloured in , and fussy cut out. The background paper and sentiment is from Stampin Up Christmas around the world designer series paper. Tomorrow is my get together of our craft group, and the theme is animals, so this one covers the criteria! I haven’t been well this week, but recovering now, so will go and sit in the craft room for a little while, and finish off my December classes before doing some ” just for me ” crafting and generally taking it easy. Til tomorrow….
I have a few more Christmas cards, this series made with Couture Creations Let Every day be Christmas A4 paper pad and matching collectables pack. I mounted the Bird collectable onto a spellbinders scalloped circle die cut, and added some Stampin Up trim ..Quick and simple! I am home now after a hugely busy morning in the shop, and I have been die cutting some Christmas trees for a large Christmas card order I have to fulfill, now that they are done I am going to sit down this afternoon and do some fussy cutting of baubles and presents to decorate, Til tomorrow…..
Hello There! continuing on with my Kaisercraft Letters to Santa series, the top card uses the 6″ pad, collectables and ribbon, as well as some kindyglitz for shimmer, and some red Nuvo drops for my berries. The lower card is a gatefold design, with papers from the 6″ pad and images from the 12 x 12 pull apart sheet, and a couple of the collectables as well. I like doing gatefold cards for Christmas cards because it’s quick and easy to decorate the inside panel rather than having to stop and prepare an insert ! Quick post this afternoon, I will sign off now and go and prepare some dinner, til tomorrow….
Today I have used the 6″ pad on both cards, even the fussy cutting elements, with the exception of the santa image which comes from the pull apart 12 x 12 sheet. I have used the Nuvo drops on all my red berries, and added some gorgeous ribbon and lace on the second card ( which is a little blurry…Nathan must have sneezed!). As usual every thing is inked around the edges with my go-to distress ink which sits on my desk..Tea Dye. All packed and ready to head out to my monthly craft and chat gathering, gee time flies, it just seemed like last week we were all together! til tomorrow….
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….
Here are the final two Kaisercraft Christmas Jewel cards, done in a double z-fold design. Both cards make use of the 6″ pad for the layering and the matching collectables for the embellishing. These were truly qucik and easy cards to make! i finished work at lunch time today, and I saw the sun peeking through so I grabbed my lunch and went and sat out in the garden for a little while and it was lovely! the sun has gone back in and so I have I, now I am going to head to the craft room for a couple of hours end of week relaxing! Til tomorrow….
two Double Z fold cards today made with Kaisercraft christmas Jewel, papers and collectables.I am doing a lot of this design this year because these will be the ones I send out to family and friends. Todays top card uses papers from the 6″ pad, a punched reindeer, a strip from the sticker sheet and a Kaisercraft wooden flourish foiled with the go press and foil machine. The lower card also uses papers from the 6″ pad, sticker sheet and a couple of the collectables from the matching pack. I ahve been to work and am home again so i think i will spend a little time this afternoon in the craft room, playing with the new kaiser range I picked up the other day, still christmas, but traditional colours this time! til tomorrow…
