christmas satmping,colouring and die cutting

IMG_2846 (Medium)IMG_2847 (Medium)A break from pretty patterned papers, and a couple of cards made using different techniques. The top card is a base made from stampin up cardstock ( mossy meadow) and a new kaisercraft christmas tree die which i die cut from glitter cardstock. I decorated the tree with small baubles fussy cut from a piece of stampin up home for christmas designer paper. The second card is coloured with copics, and the stamp is one from C.C.Designs called candle light. a ribbon bow and sentiment stamped with a stampin up curly cute stamp and that one was done! what a busy weekend, but off now to the craft room for an hour or two to relax a little bit! til tomorrow….

Stampin Up home for christmas continued…

IMG_2947 (Medium)I thought we would continue on with this series ( stampin Up home for Christmas designer paper) for the next day or two, the papers in this range are all so different you would never guess all these cards were made with the same collection. Todays card uses some of the paper as the “wall”, and I put a piece behind the die cut ( memory box die) window. The tree , presents and holly were fussy cut from more sheets from this collection.The cat was stamped from a stamp set from stampin up called festive fireplace and coloured and cut out. I have been making more cards from this collection toady, because I haven’t even scratched the creative surface with this one, but it’s back to work tomorrow, got to love a long weekend though!Til tomorrow….

IMG_2869 (Medium)Kaisercraft Silver Bells paper collection and collectables. Again I have folded the front of my card base ( stampin Up cardstock) back on itself, and decorated with some of the paper from the 6″ pad. I edged all my paper with tea dye distress ink, and added a strip of lace and a ribbon bow to finish. a beautiful sunny day here in adelaide today,and Nathan has been outside picking bags and bags of lemons. We have enough lemon juice frozen to keep us in lemon cordial for a year, and have given many bags away.Thankfully we are nearly at the end of them now, and all the other fruit trees have lots of blossom so hoping for a bumper year this year! Til tomorrow….

Kaisercraft Silver Bells number 3…

IMG_2857 (Medium)Kaisercraft Silver Bells once again, this time the pink tones of the paper. I used the papers from the 6″ pad for this one, and as for the previous card folded the front of the card back on itself.Inside I used an image from a 12 x 12 paper ( which had room on it for writing your greeting)and added lace and ribbon. I also edged all around all the papers with tea dye distress ink. it was good to catch up with all my ladies at a lesson today, and one day of work tomorrow then the weekend! Til tomorow….

Kaisercraft Silver bells 2..

IMG_2851 (Medium)I made a few cards with this paper (kaisercraft Silver Bells) where I folded the card front back on itself and decorated – just for something a bit different! The card front and inner back is decorated with a piece of the 6″pad and I used a collectable for the focal point. A piece of 12 x 12 paper is stuck inside the inner back so that you can write your greeting. I like this – no inserts to do! Til tomorrow….
