This card somehow got separated from it’s partner which I posted a few posts down… I used Prima Botanicals paper, and the butterflies were fussy cut from a sheet of Graphic 45 paper that was full of these gorgeous butterflies. I used a scrap piece of prima paper to cut randomly sized rectangles and distressed and inked the edges before mounting the butterflies on them. Today I have been playing with my punches, and have come up with some different cards using them, which I am sure will feature in a lesson or two soon! Til tomorrow….
I have mixed and matched a little bit on this card.The papers are all Prima paper, there are two main layers, and the one most visible is Prima Botanical paper. I cut rectangles from more prima paper, and distressed and sponged all my edges. The butterflies were cut from a sheet of graphic 45 paper which was a full sheet of gorgeous butterfly images which are now all fussy cut and waiting to be put on more cards! I just added a little lace and kindyglitz.I have now officially started my 4 weeks holidays, and I am so looking forward to all the crafty things I have planned! Til tomorrow….
Tomorrow we will get back to my monochrome series with the Bo Bunny paper, but today we have something completely different! Nathan and I made a video yesterday of me making a simplified twisted triple easel card.! I used Graphic 45 On the Boardwalk Paper, and Stampin Up cardstock – Calypso coral and Pool party. The rest speaks for itself – hope you enjoy! Til Tomorrow….
This is the last for now in my graphic 45 tropical travelogue series. For this one I used a Martha Stewart punch , lace ,ribbon ,Kaisercraft sparklet and bling, kindyglitz and stampin Up cardstock – Calypso Coral. Tomorrow we will have something completely different . This week a lot of new dies for my cuttle bug have arrived, so I am hoping over the next few days to have a play with them, and I still have some orders to do so that’s me organiseed!Our weather is climbing up there again and that’s not such a good thing for crafting – it gets too hot to do anything so we will see…. Til tomorrow..
This is the card I made for my Aunties birthday – it was a very hot day when I made this one and the colours were very cooling.. you can see where my mind was…. Nathans camera doesn’t like taking photos of step cards – it never knows what to focus on so this image isn’t the best but I hope you get the general idea. The cardstock was Stampin Up calypso coral, and I did a bit of fussy cutting of the papers to get the result I wanted Til tomorrow……
Oh dear – hit the wrong button and this photo might appear twice… sorry…. Another 2 cards using graphic 45 Tropical Travelogue, and a little ribbon and bling. the Cardstock used is stampin Up taken with Teal, summer sun, Calypso Coral and green galore. Some of those colours are retired now, but I stocked up on them and I am so glad I did!They match this paper so well. Quick post as its shopping tonight and I have an order to fulfill as well…. Til tomorrow…
Another hot day here in my part of the world, but I have found the perfect papers to cool me down – graphic 45 tropical travelogue collection. The colours are gorgeously vibrant , bright and cool! I have used Stampin Up cardstock with them – taken with teal, and summer sun. I also added some ribbon, a maya stick pin and assorted kaisercraft bling. I only have a couple more to show in this series, but will be making more with it soon – it’s such a gorgeously bright collection, and different from what I have been using lately… Til tomorrow…..
Tonights card is a different look for me, but I thoroughly enjoyed coming up with this one, although I do still have trouble ripping paper! I used Graphic 45 A proper gentleman, Kaisercraft Rub-ons, Tim Holtz clock hands, and a scrap of script paper, ripped and inked. Lokking forward to a peaceful evening in my craft room, Til tomorrow…..
I found this paper (graphic 45 Curtain call) while browsing at my craft shop, and I could see straight away that it wouldn’t take much to make some cards out of it. I’ve only used 2 pieces of paper, and some metallic gold and Stampin Up basic black to make these. Today Ive been making Mothers day cards with the new range of kaisercraft papers – Chantreuse, but I’m ready to move on now, and look at my new Prima paper. Til tomorrow…..
