Graphic 45 raining cats and dogs

IMG_0590 (Medium)While I had my graphic 45 raioning Cats and dogs paper out to make the bendy card ( previous Post) I made one last card with it before putting all the leftovers into a bag for the craft fair sale. I had a couple of this image, so I used one for the base, and then cut into the second image to make some 3d layers. I added ribbon, lace and bling to finish. A day off today, shopping done, and now i am heading into the craft room to relax a bit! til tomorrow….

graphic 45 bendy card

IMG_0589 (Medium)This is a bendy card, and I made one for Mum and dad’s 60th wedding anniversary.The ladies over at the retirement village want to learn how to make them and as I had only ever made that one I thought I had better practise! I made this one using graphic 45 raining cats and dogs patterned paper, and I made it in three pieces, with tabs on the edges for attaching to the base at the sides. I have seen them done all in one piece of cardstock with the flappy bits at the sides cut to the curves, but I think it is easier to decorate the flaps if they are separate from the base. I did a bit of fussy cutting, and just added a ribbon bow to finish – this type of card doesn’t need much embellishing! Til tomorrow….

Graphic 45 Raining Cats and Dogs Step it Up!

IMG_1784 (Medium)Graphic 45 raining cats and Dogs..this is the third card I made with this image of the girl and her puppy, and I have really stepped it up by cutting a stepper card, adding lots of layers, and fussy cut flowers.A bit of bling and ribbon to finish.Lots of measuring and different sizes of card before I settled on this size, and it will be a lesson in March ( with different papers though)Day off today, and I have made great strides on the order, with only one card left to do.Much cooler here today, and welcome rain as well, so the fires are well under control now. Til tomorrow….

Graphic 45 raining Cats and dogs.2 and 3 ..step it up!

IMG_1782 (Medium)IMG_1783 (Medium)For something a little different, I decided to take the same image from Graphic 45 Raining cats and Dogs paper collection, and make three cards ( two shown today and the last one next time) and make a basic card, then step it up for each card. the top card is the first card. Some basic layering ( I like the sketch – will use this again)and this one was quick and easy. For the bottom card ( second in my step it up series) I used the same papers and layout,but added some fussy cut flowers,and a ribbon bow. I will show the third one next time..Very hot here today, have a big order to do but will have to wait til the weather is a bit cooler..Til tomorrow….

graphic 45 raining cats and dogs number 1

IMG_1781 (Medium)I haven’t had a chance to post the few cards I have made with this range of papers from graphic 45 (raining cats and dogs), so I will take the opportunity to start now while we have a break from all cards masculine! I made a stepper card – I find the graphic 45 papers suit these different shaped cards -and layered up papers, as well as a little bit of fussy cutting on the right hand side.Cardstock is stampin up Baja breeze.Til tomorrow….
