Todays card is one I taught yesterday in my class at Paper Flourish.It is a very simple one that doesn’t require a lot of product. I used two different sized fish tail dies ( kaisercraft) to make the shirt, and ran the larger piece through a Couture Creations pinstripe embossing folder.The bow tie was made with a template, but I do have a Stampin up punch that would have done the trick and you can also get dies ( I saw a paper rose one) that would also work.I just had to add three pearls to finish this quick and easy design.Quick post today as I can smell my cake baking in the oven – might be time to take it out! til tomorrow….
Here are a couple of Christmas cards, using the same dies, but the top card is the simple version and the lower card is a stepped up version. The two dies used are Kaisercraft dies ( love them – they cut so well) Poinsetta die and season greetings die.(the lower card uses the merry christmas die) I cut the poinsetta from pearlescent paper which gives it a lovely sheen. the lower card step up…a layered white piece of cardstock embossed with swiss dots folder,a run of cream/gold ribbon,and a kaisercraft sparklet in the centre of the poinsetta. the piece of music patterned paper is a kaisercraft piece from one of last years releases.This morning all the mundane jobs done, so a bite of lunch, then into the craft room for a nice relaxing afternoon. Til tomorrow…..
This is a card very similar to one of the cards my ladies made in a class last month.All white cardstock, and a piece of white cardstock run through a hearts embossing folder. For the cake I cut 3 squares – 5cm,4cm,and 3 cms and rounded the top corners of each, then stuck them together along the top edges of the squares. Mount on the card front with foam pads,add ribbon and punched flowers, some kaisercraft pearls,your own sentiment and this is a simple wedding card done!Off to work I go… til tomrrow…..
This is another village lesson card – the ladies gave me the embossing folder which they had purchased and asked for some ideas on how to use it.I embossed a piece of cream cardstock and then inked the raised areas with a green ink pad and sponge. The flowers were punched using a cosmos martha stewart punch and I added some bling and a ribbon bow, and mounted everything onto stampin up daffodil Delight cardstock.The butterfly was punched with a stampin up punch.I have been busy in the card room making some more class lessons,and preparing for my class later in the week, but when I go back in there later I will be creating with some new papers – can’t wait!
This afternoon I taught a class over at the retirement village which reminded me I didn’t show you all the cards I taught last month over there, so here’s the first one – very simple – cardstock is all stampin up – Pool Party, blushing bride( which is the card base) and whisper white. The embossing folder is Stampin up fancy Fan folder, and the border punch used is martha Stewart lace doily punch. I found the middle of the embossed piece of cardstock , cut down 4 cms, and folded each cut back to create the V necked sweater. The buttons are craftworks craft candii, and liquid pearls for the necklace. Have a look at your embossing folders – I’ll bet one of them would work for this design!A lovely evening last night spent in the craft room, and I am heading in there again this evening as all my lot are busy putting on a wrestling show…..peace…..Til tomorrow….
