Recently I had an order for a purple birthday card, so I teamed it with black and gold , and got to work with the big shot and a variety of dies…kaisercraft layered flowers,magnolia flourish, and spellbinders for the sentiment and tags. The gold foiled doily was from a kaisercraft paper range,embossing folder was an older stampin up one, and the cardstock was also stampin up.I cheated and used gold letter stickers for the message.Til tomorrow….
I found a Kaisercraft Mademoiselle card that I haven’t posted yet..I used 12 x 12 papers for this one, and some fussy cut pieces from more 12 x 12 paper. I used a kaisercraft occassions die to die cut the greeting in gold cardstock,added some gold thread behind, and hand crocheted a doily ( still practising !) and added some bead,and bling , ribbon bow , in the centre. The cardstock base is a piece of stampin up cardstock. Til tomorrow….
When I first started cardmaking I made 3D cards.This is before I discovered patterned paper! anyway, now and again I go back to my cardmaking roots and rediscover 3d sheets all over again. I love the act of sitting in front of the TV fussycutting the layers..the most relaxing thing ever,and it is always fun to try an old style with new tools such as the top card with the Kaisercraft Roses embossing folder and the bottom card with swipes of my clear wink of stella pen.I bought a few 3d sheets when I was at the craft fair for a very good price, so over the year you may see some more ideas from me as I create with them. Today i have plans to actually enjoy some quality time in the craft room – something that has been lacking in the past few weeks..til tomorrow….
I know I mentioned some stamped cards in my previous post,but Nathan did some Photoing, and there was one Kaisercraft mademoiselle card in the group,so I wanted to put it up with yesterdays card, so that we aren’t jumping all over the place!For this card i have used some of the 12 x 12 papers. The frame is from the 12 x 12 card front sheets. There was some words in the centre, but I didn’t want to use them, so I cut the inside of the frame away and backed it instead with some 12 x 12 paper. With this collection there is a specialty sheet covered with lots of lovely images which I sat and fussy cut out one evening, and that’s where the lady came from!All I needed then was a kaisercraft flower, ribbon bow and some pearls to finish. Til tomorrow…
The Kaisercraft Mademoiselle paper collection is gorgeous, so much so that I have used it for my August class at Paper Flourish!For this card I have used the 6″ paper pad,and a couple of the collectables.The trim is by Prima, and the butterfly is fussy cut from another of the papers in the pad.The secret to this vintage style paper is to ink around all your edges…I have used Tea Dye distress ink.We will continue this collection after Nathan has photoed the cards I have since made up, meanwhile tomorrow we will have a look at some stamped cards I recently worked on. Til tomorrow…..
Hello and welcome to my new subscribers! Today we are looking at the last of my Bo Bunny Butterfly Kisses cards ( for now..I love this paper collection and will be re visiting it soon, but for now I have to make some Fathers day cards). This one is my favourite of the series because I have gone back to basics, relying on the paper to do all the work! The base is stampin up cardstock, and the first layer is a piece cut from one of the 12 x 12 sheets. The next piece is from the matching noteworthy pack, and I fussy cut some pink / apricot frondy bits from more paper and added a butterfly collectable and ribbon bow. Today i am teaching a class over at the retirement village,so i must go and remind myself what we are actually doing and gather all my bits and pieces together! Til tomorrow….
Bo Bunny Butterfly Kisses paper collection…in the collection is a sheet with lots of mason jars printed on it,so I fussy cut them out and this is one of the cards I made with the result. I added a butterfly from the collectables pack and the brad on the flower at the top was from the collection of brads that came with the collection. I think I said it before..the brads are gorgeous! A bit of layering and a ribbon bow ( of course) and this one was finished! day off today, shopping done, tea prepared and I am off to the craft room! Til tomorrow….
Cards 2 and 3 in my Bo Bunny Butterfly kisses series, and the top card continues on the theme set with the first card,using another die from the stampin up tea time set. This time I used the tea pot die, and filled it with fussy cut flowers from the bo bunny paper.The cardstock and ribbon is from Stampin Up.The bottom card uses all bo bunny papers, variously cut from 12 x 12 sheets. I fussy cut the butterfly and the gorgeous brad is also from Bo bunny, the brads that came with this collection are amazing!. The cardstock is from stampin up. Til tomorrow….
Today we start a new group of cards made with Bo Bunny Butterfly kisses. I love the colours on this paper!The cardstock I used was Stampin up, as was the tea cup die. I punched some flowers,added some liquid pearls and a kaisercraft flower, and a ribbon bow. Today in the craftt room I have finally found some time to sit down andd create with the new safari adventures paper by Graphic 45, I thought it might be perfect for some fathers day cards , which is what the next few weeks is going to be all about! Til tomorrow….
Todays card is a mix of embossing and stamping and colouring. The embossing folder I used on the background Is a kaisercraft Roses embossing folder, and I sprinkled a few rhinestones over it. The main image is a stampin up stamp from their Birthday Blooms stamp set and I coloured it with copics and fussy cut it out, attaching to the front of the card with 3d foam pads. A little ribbon and lace and this card is a very feminine card indeed! This morning I have been busy creating in the kitchen, an apple crumble for later, a pasta bake for a quick meal in the next couple of days, and some spinach soup for lunch today made with spinach from the garden. I feel i have earned some time in the craft room! til tomorrow….
