Uniquely Creative Wild ..last two

The last two cards made with the Uniquely Creative Wild collection are a total break from the Dinosaurs, much more feminine and very simple. I used an embossing folder on the top card, and some frondy leaf dies on the lower card. I haven’t done much crafting this week as my husband has been very ill in hospital. He is home now but very weak, so I am playing nurse. The one good thing is we are all out of isolation, so life will gradually get back to new normal. til next time, stay safe….

Mintay Urban Jungle part 2…

Her, as promised are the other 3 cards i have made so far with Mintay urban Jungle..a week late, I know, But things have been happening! First we were sent into a deep lockdown due to an outbreak of Covid. Thankfully our wonderful health professionals were on top of the contact tracing so swiftly we didn’t have to endure a very long “nothing but supermarkets and medical places open” for very long at all, and things are now almost back to normal with minimal restrictions. So a great time to craft I hear you say? No. My son is finally coming home after spending four years interstate, and not being able to see him all this year, there is nothing but excitement here as I empty my craft room to give him a place to lay his head until he gets his own place. Also now that the shops are finally open I have to do a last minute push to finish the Christmas shopping. Crafting will happen, but it is going to be sporadic for a while!In the meantime stay safe, Til next time….

Uniquely Creative Something Blue part 2…

Another three cards made with Uniquely Creative Something Blue. All the bits and pieces on these cards were in the creative kit,but everything is also available individually on their website. I love the cool colours in this range.. just what we need today when our temperature is so hot..over 38C ! A cool crafting day for me! Til next time, stay safe…

Mintay Merry and Bright

Three cards today made with Mintay merry and Bright. The first two are very simple , with just fussy cut images from the papers, and the third card is an accordian style card with step down features. I have shown you a few different angles, so that hopefully you see what I mean!lots of images from the papers, and added flowers and a doily on this one!This week I have been busy drawing up patterns – I am going to get the sewing machine out and try my hand at some dolls clothes for my little great niece..I am looking forward to trying something a bit different, but i also have to prepare a lesson for the village ladies, so a crafty week is on the cards! til next time, stay safe….

Uniquely Creative Once Upon a Christmas

This week I have been creating cards with the new Uniquely Creative paper collection which is called Once Upon a Christmas. I have done a different fold for these ones, a sort of accordian fold with step down features. I have included an image at the bottom of the inside of one of the cards to give you a better idea. WordPress has changed the way I can do my blog, please let me know if there are any issues your end, I am having a few this end and I am going to have to pay Nathan in double quantities of chocolate to get him to show me all the ins and outs!Til next time, stay safe…

Bits and pieces on my desk…

_MG_1265 (Medium)_MG_1268 (Medium)A little while ago when I was having a bit of a clean up, a few scraps on my desk ( with a little die cutting) were turned into cards. I quite like these ones, and they may be turned into a village ladies class in the near future, when we are finished our Christmas cards. Speaking of…I received my new Uniquely Creative Once upon a Christmas paper pack this week and am enjoying all the fussycutting!Oh, and you can now follow me in instagram at helengreco30!  Thats been my week, hope you are all staying safe, til next time….

Uniquely Creative Steampunk Safari..part 2..

IMG_2391IMG_2396IMG_2398IMG_2400IMG_2403This week I have continued on with my Uniquely Creative Steampunk safari paper collection, but used the gorgeous floral elements in pretty autumn colours.I made some flowers using book paper and Glassine to add and found some metal butterflies to add as well.I love the numbers die from Uniquely Creative which I die cut in rose gold cardstock. Sequins, and a touch of  liquitex iridescent medium and they were finished. It has been a cold wet week here so lots of crafting has been done, and I have been trying out some new ideas getting the most out of my ink pads. I will be putting those up on my instagram helengreco30 this week. Til next time, stay safe…

Uniquely Creative Steampunk Safari

IMG_2377IMG_2380IMG_2381IMG_2382This week something different for me..The new paper collection from Uniquely Creative is called Steampunk Safari, and although I like the look of steampunk my cardmaking style is really too neat for it but I gave it a go! The clue I think is lots of cogs!The numbers die from Uniquely Creative is also brilliant and I will be using it lots. Next week I will have more cards made from this range to show you but they will be back to my comfort zone! In the meantime, stay safe …til next time…
