No die cutting or stamping on this card – just all paper!I used a bit of everything in the collection – some papers from the 6″ pad, collectables, and one of the card front rectangles from a 12 x 12 paper.Did some fussy cutting, and added some bling. Got to love this paper! Til tomorrow….
Sorry I have been missing a little bit this week, but I have been working extra hours due to the Christmas rush at work.Over the next couple of weeks I may be posting a little less due to the same reason. We are going back to my Ooh La La cards made with Kaisercraft Ooh La La paper collection and matching collectables. This is the paper I reached for when I damaged my shoulder and couldn’t do any die cutting – things have improved only a little but I have become adept at die cutting with my left hand, but still avoid it when I can! For this card I used papers from the 6″ pad., and layered them up, fussy cutting around the tops of the flower paper layer, and a tag from the pad. A collectables butterfly ,ribbon bow, kaisercraft pearls and green Tara flower all added texture. Til tomorow….
Here are my last 2 cards made with Graphic 45 Cafe Parisian for now.The cardstock I used is from Stampin Up and blends in well with the colours on this paper. Just lots of layering and fussy cutting on both cards and a ribbon bow on each for a touch of texture. As I am still restricted with my shoulder as to what i can acheive in the craft room i thought this weekend I might have a try at making some flower sprays, so i have been gathering odd flowers, leaves , wire and various other bits and pieces and will sit down this afternoon and see what happens! Til tomorrow….
More Graphic 45 Cafe Parisian today, and aren’t those cakes yummy-looking? The colours are gorgeous on this paper, and with some fussy cutting and mounting on foam pads only a bit of kindyglitz ( and a ribbon bow) is required to finish these ones! til tomorrow….
Today will be my last post for about a week, as I am off to visit my son in Sydney! It is also the last card I made using Kaisercraft True Romance paper collection. I have a you-tube clip ( see link on right hand side of blog) to show you the measurements for my box card,and I have just used the papers, inking around the edges of all the panels with tea dye distress ink, and added a bow. All the other pieces were fussy cut fromthe papers. I spent a little time in the craft room this morning, hoping to prepare my classes for december, but the shoulder is still not the best even with yesterdays cortosone injection, so I have had to give up, and will sit and rest it for a while with a good book! Til next week…
I wanted to explore a little bit with pleating techniques, and Kaisercraft true Romance papers were perfect for this technique as the front and backs of the papers are so pretty!I started with a card base made with Stampin Up cardstock, layered two pieces of paper on top of that. A sticker from the same collection covered the join after i had added my pleated piece of paper. A bit of measuring was involved here, but now that i have worked out the measurements any more card I make like this will be easier. Use a piece of copy paper while you are experimenting to save your lovely papers!.A bow and tag finished todays card. Til tomorrow….
Todays cards rely heavily on dies. The paper I used is by Stampin Up called Home for Christmas and it was released last year, but I still have a bit left.For the top card the sentiment die is a new release from memory box,and the scenery dies are by stampin up also a release from last year, but I didn’t get them in time to use them last year. The bottom card has a window die cut with a memory box die,with one of the stampin up dies behind it. The house and christmas tree were fussy cut from the stampin up paper.We are experiencing wild weather here at the moment, so will post this now in case we lose power again! Til tomorrow….
