Four cards this week, made with kaisercraft Nature Breeze. pretty papers with gorgeous birdlife! Some fussy cutting, but not a piece of ribbon or lace to be seen! I have spent more time outside this week..the sun has been out in the afternoons, and it’s been lovely outside weather. I hope you are all staying safe, til next time….
I have used about half of this collection, so it will be brought out again! I have loved working with the cute little Aussie animals and birds and the papers haven’t needed much more additional embellishment. On these three cards I have only added extra flowers ( to one card) and some glittery die cutting. I keep saying I am going to start Christmas cards and then get distracted. At the moment I am busy putting together some cardmaking kits for my retirement village ladies. I can’t visit to teach them but they can do my kits easily enough. Where would we be without our hobbies ? In the meantime , stay safe, til next time….
Today I have 4 cards that I made with Uniquely Creative Wise and Free papers. This is an Australian company ( although they do have some stockists in America) and it is close to my heart as friends of mine own it, and their designs are my favourite style.On these cards I have added some die cutting and flowers,a scrap of ribbon but thats all.It’s been bitterly cold here, and we finally gave in and installed a couple of heaters. It is toasty warm in the house now and everyone is happy! restrictions have eased a bit but we are still socially distancing and only go out for necessities as I have elderly parents and want to keep them safe. Til next time, Stay safe,
This weeks cards are made using kaisercraft Sunkissed..I thought after a week of rain and cold weather we could use a little brightness!We never complain about the rain though! All of these cards only use the 6″ pad and the matching collectables. I may have done a little fussy cutting, but nothing else has been added to these ones. My craft desk today is covered with ribbon, lace and flowers and I am working with some new Prima paper, so I am back in my comfort zone!Til next time, stay safe…..
On todays post are three cards I made for a lesson I taught at paper Flourish.We did lots of fussy cutting( of course!), a little bit of layering and added some rhinestones for a bit of bling. I haven’t done much crafting for myself since I got back from my cruise, I have been busily creating card classes for the next couple of months. I am nearly caught up and looking forward to using some of the new supplies I have been collecting. til tomorrow….
So many beautiful paper collections, so little crafting time! Today’s cards are made with Prima lavender frost range. Starting with the lower card,I layered up paper from the 6″ paper pad, and a printed vellum piece ( which was in a pack of the flowers that were released with the collection), a journaling card from the 3 x 4 lavender frost journaling cards,some fussy cutting from papers, and various flowers and leaf die cuts. The resin frame was a seven paper Dolls frame. For the top card I cut some banners from leftover strips,and added a metal finding,and in this case the frame was one I made with a mold and some no more gaps filler from the hardware shop! I just ran over it with some Nuvo Fresh Copper mousse on my finger.
Todays two cards highlight the Go Press and Foil machine, which I used to foil the Happy Birthday. I did these two cards for a class that I taught, and incorporated some die cutting with Seven paper Doll dies. On the top card I cut up one of the filigreed die cut squares to create fancy borders. Glitter cardstock was used for the leave and flourish dies, and then just added some pretty flowers. I have been missing from here this week as My dad is in hospital and I have been busy visiting him, and working in between. He is still in hospital, having many tests, so my busy life is ongoing, I will get back here as often as time permits , Til then……
My sister gave me a stamp set by Stampin Up before Christmas and I finally found the time to ink it up, with Archival ink stamped onto watercolour paper, and colour with my zig watercolour brushes in a few different colourways. Once I had experimented with colour all that was left to do was to turn my images into cards. I just used bits and pieces of odds and ends to make these three cards. I have been missing for a few days because I am trying to get ahead in my lesson planning as I lose a little bit of time when I go on my cruise next month. So looking forward to meeting new ladies ( and some gents) in my cruise classes!A day off today, so all the craft gear is out and I am off to do some more crafting! Til tomorrow….
Here are todays cards, still with Pion Days Gone By collection,beautiful soft colours in this range, and I have just added some lace and ribbon with a little fancy die cut borders . These cards didn’t need anything else, they have a lovely vintage feel about them! Its very warm here just now, I have been lazily playing in the craft room, but also enjoying the season and spending most of my free time with family. I have worked a few days in between and we have been busy putting out all our new ranges.. some gorgeous papers coming through from Mintay , Photoplay and Prima – so lots of ideas buzzing around in my head! Meantime, til tomorrow…..
Todays cards are made with Pion Designs papers, and I have done a different kind of card base…I guess you could call it a triple fold step down?I have used a 12 x 12 cardstock base, and scored it every 10 cm.( the height is 15 cm for the back panel, and stepped down on the other two panels). The front panel is an extra piece of cardstock, and I cut it with a tab which is attached to the front 10 cm panel and that is all hidden with papers. I have shown you two views of the top card so that you can see what I am talking about! I am officially all organised for the Christmas break, I hope you all have a safe and happy holidays and I will see you all after the festivities!
