Today is Mum and dads 62nd wedding anniversary and the whole family is getting together to celebrate, so I thought it was fitting to post this card I made with Mambi happy 12 x 12 paper pad. I die cut the hearts from more paper of the same range, die cut some white greenery(!) with a seven paper dolls die,added a kaisercraft wooden piece that I had foiled with the go press and foil, and some flowers, rhinestones and ribbon bow to finish. I hope you are all having a happy and safe Easter. Til tomorrow…..
I am sorry I have been missing all week, but it has been horrendously hot here this week, and all any of us can do is find the coolest spot and just stay there! They tell us we have had a cool change, but it is 35C today, and that is still hot in my book!Anyway enough of that and on to today’s cards…These ones are made with papers from the My Minds Eye In Bloom collection, 12 x 12 papers, and /or the 6′ paper pad from the same collection. The papers are so gorgeous the cards really didn’t need any more embellishments. I loved this collection so much I actually framed one of the 12 x 12 pieces and hung it in my hallway! Heat or not today i amd definitely going into the craft room for some craft time!Til tomorrow…..
Another example of my handmade floral spray used on a card.The papers are Kaisercraft PS I love you,and the die is paper rose Ornate circle . I used a collectable doily ( from the paper collection) under the circle. This card could be used for wedding, engagement or anniversary..or even Valentines day!Quick post today as it’s awfully hot sitting here at the computer, I am going to find a nice spot under an airconditioning vent to sit and read a good book! til tomorrow….
Here are the last two cards I made with My minds Eye My story paper collection, and chipboard elements. The only thing I added to these two was a little bit of gold twine. I have enjoyed playing with this collection and will revisit it again to use up all the leftovers when I have made some cards with the new collections I bought over christmas and haven’t cut into yet!Meanwhile today in the craft room with all lessons up to date I am creating with some graphic 45 and then will move on to some very old paper collections to start my new years resolution which is to use it or clear it out!Til tomorow…..
Two wedding cards today, although the bottom card could also be used for anniversary,engagement or even valentines day, from Simple stories the story of us paper collection.A bit of fussy cutting involved here, especially on the top card, and just some punched leaves, pearls, and ribbon bow to finish. Thank you all for sticking with me through this simple stories marathon, we have two more tomorrow and then we will move on! I certainly got my moneys worth with theses few sheets of paper!Today I sat down at my craft table and found some images I had stamped and coloured, so I turned them all into cards so feel good – I tidied and created all at once! Til tomorrow…
Two more cards made with Simple stories ..The story us paper collection. I used doilies and flowers, punched leaves and liquid pearls on both these cards,and the addition of die cut hearts ( one run through my machine with a swiss dots embossing folder) on the bottom card.Today I was out and about looking for a smaller desk for my craft room. The trestle table just invites random placing of items, and before I know it no room for me to work, but so far no luck in my search. ikea have an ideal one but they were out of stock, and I really wanted to organise my room while I was on holiday, but i will just have to wait!Til tomorrow….
Simple Stories, the story of us paper collection. the beauty of this paper was that it didn’t need too much else to complete the cards. The top card has some fussy cutting,sequins,ribbon and a leaf punch, while the bottom card has the addition of a doily,flower some sequins and leaf punch.Today I have been busy putting together some Ikea furniture, while Nathan rejigged the sitting room corner where my computer lives.So pleased with myself that I managed to follow the instructions and build my 2 drawer wooden filing cabinet, and I only have a couple of screws and thingmajigs left over. I hope they weren’t integral to the sturdiness of my cabinet! Til tomorrow….
The very last card in this series ( Kaisercraft On This day) is a card and a box. On the right is the box, left is the card. I used a piece of the 12 x 12 paper, collectables, lace, ribbon, and an assortment of flowerts for this one, and inked all my edges with spun sugar distress ink.Today has been a day of cooking, and cleaning but I have managed to spend an hour or so in the craft room making more cards with bo bunny primrose. These ones I will be able to photo, but not til next week as Nathan has been busy fixing other peoples malfunctioning computers! he is very in demand that boy! Til tomorrow….
Two cards today, both using Kaisercraft On This day paper pad and collectables.The top card is still following the wedding themd, but the bottom card is a sympathy card. a lot of the images in this collection can be used for so many different themes. I have had a lovely day in the craft room – actually finished using one paper collection, tidied a little bit, ad then made a dozen Mothers day cards. Those ones won’t make it to my blog as I have had to put them straight into my lunch room boxes as people are already asking for them.I have also palyed alittle bit with my new bo bunny paper – took a card or two to settle into the swing of that paper but I am on a roll now! til tomorrow….
Kaisercraft On This day 6″paper pad and matching collectables. I have used a scalloped edge punch for the top layer, and wrapped my ribbon around that before sticking to the card front. A ribbon bow and some kindyglitz to finish! I saw the new kaisercraft papers today, but ( shock) I didn’t buy any!I must really be serious about using up the over abundance of paper in my craft room!I did however buy some sheets of the new bo bunny paper – Primrose. I fell in love with the pastel colours in that range , so hopefully will get into the craft room this weekend to make some Mothers day cards with it. Til tomorrow….
