Kaisercraft Ooh La La , 12 x 12 paper,and matching collectables.These are still the cards i have been making while I haven’t been able to do any die cutting, but on the top card i used my Stampin Up bow builder punch, love it and will be using it a lot more!Otherwise a very simple card. The bottom card has lots of texture – lace, ribbon, pearls,sequins and even a flower! the greeting is a vertical stamp from Stampin Up, another item I will be using a lot this coming year! Til tomorrow ( with our last card in this series…for now…)…
Sorry I have been missing a little bit this week, but I have been working extra hours due to the Christmas rush at work.Over the next couple of weeks I may be posting a little less due to the same reason. We are going back to my Ooh La La cards made with Kaisercraft Ooh La La paper collection and matching collectables. This is the paper I reached for when I damaged my shoulder and couldn’t do any die cutting – things have improved only a little but I have become adept at die cutting with my left hand, but still avoid it when I can! For this card I used papers from the 6″ pad., and layered them up, fussy cutting around the tops of the flower paper layer, and a tag from the pad. A collectables butterfly ,ribbon bow, kaisercraft pearls and green Tara flower all added texture. Til tomorow….
A quick break from Christmas cards today while I show you a few cards I made with a couple of sheets of Pebbles Winter Wonderland that I picked up.The top photo shows two cards that I made with a gatefold, covering all panels with the patterned paper, and the Princesses from one of the shet of paper, and the bottom photo shows the more traditional fold and for the focal point I glued on some little dolls that I picked up in our local cheap shop. I die cut the happy birthday’s out of glitter cardstock. Seeing these cards again has just reminded me that I have an order for 3 cards to do this weekend, for great grand daughters. I hope I still have some of those little dolls left because they will be perfect!Til tomorrow….
Oops! I was all ready to move on to some christmas cards when I found one more card made with Julie Nutting Belle Vie paper (I only purchased 2 papers from this collection)This actually was the last one I made using up the last of the paper.I die cut a scalloped rectangle , and 2 butterflies,inked everything,and added the last of my bead string ( I have bought some more – Kaisercraft make it now, but the length that I have been using came off the dress of a vintage doll)ribbon,bow and sequins to decorate.Early finish from work today, so a bit of time to put my feet up! til tomorrow….
Here are the last three cards I made with my 2 pieces of Julie Nutting Belle Vie paper.The bottom card ( which I have accidentally posted twice!)has a little fussy cutting on it and a metal charm as well,the second card has a paper bow made from a punch I bought from stampin up, and the top card has a little bicycle charm. I loved making this card series as I got to dig through forgotten boxes of bits and pieces to decorate them!I have a new plan – put one of those forgotten boxes on my desk and use them up that way!I have been busy today in the craft room fulfilling 3 orders, and working on a class which is coming together beautifully..til tomorrow…..
continuing on with the cards I made with a couple of sheets of Julie Nutting Belle Vie papers I layered the first paper, after swiping with Tea Dye ink around the edges, and popped a postcard print from the other sheet on top – It had a lovely image on the left so i just added my greeting ( stamped with a stampin up stamp and fussy cut) behind which i glued some fibre wool. a group of flowers and some old beading to finish! Busy day today, long overdue trip to the hairdresser, and a family picnic in the park thios afternoon – hope the weather holds! Til tomorow…
I purchased just a couple of sheets of this collection – Julie Nutting Belle Vie,and this was the first card I made with it. I covered the card blank with a piece of patterned paper and Inked the edges with tea dye distress ink.Using a stampin up stamp and ink I stamped the dress form and fussy cut.All the trims on this card were out on my desk – just bits and pieces and scraps so it was good to use them all! The ribbons were stampin up, the lace and flower prima and some old beading and gauze.A day off today, but busy running errands, and thinking about upcoming classes.I have a few ideas buzzing around and look forward to some time in the craft room this weekend to start them all! til tomorrow….
