Here is the simplest card I have made in quite some time! White cardstock, a Stampin Up 3D embossing folder ( so gorgeous) a length of ribbon, lace , 3 little flowers and some pearl bling. This card would be perfect for a wedding card that had to be posted, but I think I will give it to my mum for Mothers day. Sorry for the late post this weekend, but I got completely sidetracked cleaning out my crafting supplies – it was time for a spring clean and I haven’t even scratched the surface yet. I have a little bubble of an idea forming for making card kits, but will have to pop it on the back burner until after the June fair. I will keep you all posted! Til next time….
This is the second Shabby Chic card i taught in my recent class. we distressed and inked, and die cut and added lots of lovely flowers! We did also colour our flowers with some distress re inker watered down in a spray bottle and sprayed our butterflies too. If I remember correctly the paper collection is from Kaisercraft called pen and ink.
A couple of weeks ago we got some new Nuvo Glimmer Paste into the shop, and I couldn’t resist having a bit of a play with it!I used the clear glimmer paste and brushed it through a stencil to create the glittery background on this card. I love Glimmer paste! It is really shiny and glittery, and dries really quickly. I used the gold glimmer paste to paint the chipboard bird, and the background paper on this card is Kaisercraft Rose Avenue. I added flowers, ribbon and lace to finish. I thought I had finished my cruise cards this week but they asked for another class so I have been working on that and today I am off to the craft room to make a couple of birthday cards for upcoming birthdays. Til tomorrow…..
One of Kaisercraft’s new ranges this month is called Indigo Skies. Lots of blues and greys in this range, but because I had picked up so much of the other release ( High Tea) I only chose 3 sheets of this range because I knew I wouldn’t get the time to use it all. Anyway, I sat down with my 3 sheets and made 4 cards, also 2 cards with matching decorated boxes, and decorated these two frames. I will get Nathan to photo the rest properly, but I wanted to share my frames straight away. The butterflies are fussy cut from one of the Indigo Skies 12 x 12 sheets ( one full sheet of gorgeous butterflies to fussy cut..this sheet formed the basis for all my makes) and the background is from another sheet of the same range. Everything else – frames ( free with a magazine years ago),flowers,lace, pretty die cuts,lace and pearls string were all found in a rummage through my craft room. Today I must make a birthday card for my son Daniel so that I can get it in the post, and I have a lesson half completed on my desk which I will finish . Til tomorrow…..
Todays cards are put aside for an order, I like they way they came out and will more than likely design a class around these dies. The dies are by Paper Rose, and they are: leaf scrolls,vases and stems,flower set one,and the embossing folder is a kaisercraft one. I also like this embossing folder – it fits my size card ( 15 x 21 cm folded) perfectly. I also embossed the vases. A terrific way to use up scraps of cardstock.Well, today roast is in the oven ( bit of a poor choice really as its so humid here today) washing is sorted, everyone is happy so i am off to the craft room! Til tomorrow….
No die cutting or stamping on this card – just all paper!I used a bit of everything in the collection – some papers from the 6″ pad, collectables, and one of the card front rectangles from a 12 x 12 paper.Did some fussy cutting, and added some bling. Got to love this paper! 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…
