Elegant Bird

Todays card is a Christmas card,using Stampin UP Elegant Bird Die, and some scraps of paper. The glitter paper that I used on the birds wing is from Stampin Up, and I have been thinking and thinking trying to remember where I cut the word peace from, and I think I must have done it on my Cricut machine although if I remember differently I will let you all know!Quick post today, as it’s shopping night – Til tomorrow….

Graphic 45 Christmas emporium 9,10,11 and 12

To finish off my Graphic 45 Christmas Emporium series I have put up the last four cards so that tomorrow we can look at something non – christmassy! These cards are so simple – just lots of images from the papers , a bit of fussy cutting and layering, and added interest with the ribbon, craftworks candi,lace , rhinestones and kindglitz. I have been quite busy in the carft room over the last couple of days, and will have to get nathan busy with the camera tomorrow.I am on holidays for a couple of weeks, and I really want to finish off some paper collections to make room fro the gorgeous Kaisercraft that is coming out over the next couple of months ( I was lucky and had a sneak peek!)Til tomorrow….

Graphic 45 Christmas Emporium 7 and 8

Graphic 45 Christmas Emporium patterned paper – the card on the right is self explanitory,the image takes up the whole of my card front, so didn’t need much else. The card on left, is another story… I used an EK Success punch,some ribbon and trim and craftworks candi. The Die Cut in the centre is a neat little stampin Up die which opens to reveal another image inside. I don’t actually have this die set, we got to play with it at the stampin up convention Kay kindly invited me along to in May, but it is on my wish list!I have been creating up a storm today in the craft room, and I am going back there after this to continue a few projects I have left to dry.. Til tomorrow….

It’s a boy/girl cards

Todays cards are it’s a boy/ girl cards made with Stampin up baby prints stamp set,and stampin up pink piroutte and bashful blue cardstock and inks. I added assorted flowers,buttons and ribbon for some interest. I used my tim holtz emboss diffuser number 2 to create the unembossed circle in the centre of the cards so that I could stamp on the white cardstock, and still have the embossing around the stamped image. I do like this gadget and must investigate the other diffusers in this product line.The other thing I am looking for is a die which cuts a window with a window ledge – if anyone knows the name of this die I would really appreciate the information! Til tomorrow….

Kaisercraft Turtle Dove 7 and 8

In a couple of days we will have a little break from christmas cards, but i wanted to post a few that I did over the weekend, using kaisercarft Turtle Dove 6″ pad and matching collectables. All I added were the kaisercraft sparklets and a little bit of ribbon. I have had good value with this collection, and still have lots of bits left to continue making! Tonight I am heading into the craft room to make some wedding anniversary cards – Mum was asking for some ideas, so I will sit down tonight and see what I come up with. Til tomorrow…

All is Bright 3 and 4

A little bit vintage, a little bit shabby – My Minds Eye All is Bright paper and matching brad and stickers. I did these 6″ square because I couldn’t bear to cut down these gorgeous papers.I added some seam binding, bakers twine and a big flower I found in my “bits” box.The cardstock used was Stampin Up crumbcake and Cherry¬† Cobbler.I spent a lovely morning at paper Flourish working on my November lessons, and this afternoon I have just been playing around with some new bits and pieces – not really making anything – just seeing what happens when I don’t have a plan – not a lot it seems! Til tomorrow….

Kaisercraft Turtle Dove 3 and 4

Here are 2 really simple cards using Kaisercraft 6′ pad – Turtle Dove and the matching collectables. I added ribbon, perfect pearls and kindyglitz to complete .I have been working on some canvas art today, but have packed it away to make some male themed cards – I have been avoiding them for a while, but have got some ideas to try out so I will spend a little time today to get them down on paper ( or should I say cardstock!) Til tomorrow…..
