For my last Baby boy Kaisercraft Peek- a- boo card I have made a gatefold card, decorated with 12 x 12 papers and matching collectables.I added some vintage ric rac and a button for a little texture, and this was a very simple card to put together. Next time we will start on the pink cards! I haven’t had much time in the craft room lately what with the shoulder injury and what little cardmaking I have managed to do has been setting up the Cruise cards ( nearly done and just as well as its just a matter of weeks now!) and lesson set ups. Tomorrow I finish this months village lesson and hopefully have an hour or to to experiment with new things! Til tomorrow….
The Kaisercraft Peek a Boo paper collection comes in two parts, you can purchase pink or blue, great idea, but I had to have both! I have made a few cards from both colourways and we will start with the blue. For the top card I used 2 pieces from the 6 ” pad and punched a border on one of the pieces.The tag is from the pack of collectables, and I used Kaisercraft die to die cut the pram. The chipboard piece is also from a kaisercraft pack.Butons ,ric rac and a ribbon bow to finish that one. The second card also has two pieces of patterned paper to cover the base card ( from the 12 x 12 papers) and I fussy cut the pram from another piece of the 12 x 12 paper. I fussy cut the word baby from a 12 x 12 paper and die cut Boy using a kaisercraft die. Again a chipboard piece, ribbon bow and buttons to finish. I am off to teach a class this morning, looking forward to seeing my ladies as I had to miss my december class due to the whole shoulder injury thing which is improving now but still not 100% yet! Til tomorrow….
Still with the same 4 sheets of paper from Bella Blvd,and a couple of different techniques here. The top card is an embedded embossing technique, i fussy cut the dummies(pacifiers) from the paper, stuck them onto some white cardstock and then ran it through my big shot in an embossing folder. I love doing this technique!The other thing i did on both cards was stamping – i dug deep into my stamp collection and found this one – by stampin up, but really old!! I cut around the stamped image and then stuck it onto some contrasting cardstock,and cut around it again. this makes little stamps a bit bigger so that you can use them as focal points. I added ribbon bows and a wobbly eye on the duck on the bottom card to finish. Til tomorrow…..
Another 3 cards made with bella Blvd Cute baby boy papers.On each of them I have die cut a scalloped circle with spellbinders dies, and fussy cut the stork image from the paper.I stamped the sentiment with stampin up Itty Bitty banners, the “perfectly precious”was also cut from the papers,and I just added ribbon bows and buttons.i am spending this afternoon over at Mum and dads,and i will take Luna with me , to give our Foxy a break from her!Til tomorrow…..
I bought 4 sheets of bella Blvd cute baby boy cards,and made 19 cards with it! Here are a couple and I will show a few more over the next day or two.On these two I have stamped a Stampin Up stamp on to some of the patterned paper and fussy cut the stamped image, layered onto a spellbinders scalloped circle.The sweet baby banner is from stampin up itty bitty Banners stamp set,and I added buttons, silver thread and a ribbon bow on the left hand card.All my housework for toaday is done and I have some gorgeous new paper from Kaisercraft ( cottage Rose) sitting in the craft room waiting for me and I am looking forward to relaxing in there!Til tomorrow…
We are jumping all over the place this month, but I found a baby Boy card I made with kaisercraft Little one paper and collectables that I forgot to post.I used and elephant collectable on a card front from a piece of the 12 x 12 paper and glued on some buttons, fibbon bow and linen thread.Love the elephants in this collection! Today I was over at Mum and dads and put together some cards which I will finish in a couple of weeks when I go to our ( a few crafty friends and myself) craft afternoon get together. I have decided if I have everything ready to stick together I might actually get something done rather than just chat the afternoon away, although that is fun too!I have a few orders to do tonight and I want to get them done quickly because I have a big bundle of new stampin up stuff to play with. The Christmas papers are gorgeous and I have many ideas for them.Also have lots of new stamps, ribbon, embossing folders and dies.Today has been a glorious day here in Adelaide, and I have even had the air conditioner on for a little while,that’s the earliest in the season it’s ever been on so I wonder if we are in for a long hot summer?Til tomorow….
A couple of months ago kaisercraft brought out a new range of baby paper called Pitter Patter. It is gorgeous, and can be used for more than just baby cards, but I started off making a few baby boy cards with with it and this one is the first. I used a piece of patterned paper from the 6″ pad, and some of the matching collectables. I inked all my edges with Stampin up ink – Pool party, and added 2 white ribbon bows. Til tomorrow…..
To finish off this series I have done a few welcome baby cards. The stamp set is Stampin Up zoo Babies, and the ink, and cardstock are also from stampin up. The embossing folder on the boys cards is from stampin Up – hexagons, and I am not too sure of the girl card embossing folder,but possibly couture creations!.tomorrow we will start a new series, today I visited paper flourish and picked up two new kaisercraft collections – hello sunshine and telegraph road, but probably won’t get a chance to create with them this week,as I am a bit busy organising myself for my trip to Perth at the weekend. til tomorrow….
