Kaisercraft yuletide 14 ..not christmas!

IMG_3179 (Medium)This paper was in the pack of 12 x 12 Kaisercraft Yuletide I purchased, but as soon as I saw it I knew I wanted to make a card other than christmas with it.It is in the lightest shade of old fashioned pink, so ribbon and lace were also a must! I die cut a Memory Box catalina wreath, and Tilda flourish ( also out of kaisercraft yuletide) and just added pearls and Prima flowers to finish.day off today, but a huge amount of shopping to do, and a birthday card for an order to complete, but up to date now and after a work day tomorrow I am looking forward to finally getting some crafting done on the weekend.Til tomorrow….

Prima something Blue number 3

IMG_0297 (Medium)A wedding card and matching box today made with prima Something Blue and the matching ATC cards.On the card i also used Prima flowers, some ribbon and lace, and a heart and leaf punch. On the lid of the box I used another ATC card, and the gorgeous flower is by Manor House.A lovely morning at Paper flourish this morning, finished my June lessons, and bought some new kaisercraft papers to play with over the weekend.Its hailing here at the moment, and so cold – I must go and find my Ugg Boots! til tomorrow….

Kaisercraft On This day number 6

IMG_4547 (Medium)Kaisercraft On This day 6″paper pad and matching collectables. I have used a scalloped edge punch for the top layer, and wrapped my ribbon around that before sticking to the card front. A ribbon bow and some kindyglitz to finish! I saw the new kaisercraft papers today, but ( shock) I didn’t buy any!I must really be serious about using up the over abundance of paper in my craft room!I did however buy some sheets of the new bo bunny paper – Primrose. I fell in love with the pastel colours in that range , so hopefully will get into the craft room this weekend to make some Mothers day cards with it. Til tomorrow….

Kaisercraft on This day number 2

IMG_4542 (Medium)A couple of weeks ago I decided I had to make some wedding, engagement and anniversary cards for my boxes( The fair I am doing in June is not far away now and I have to fill those boxes!)and I pulled out this paper – Kiasercraft On This day. Up til now I hadn’t done much with it, so I went to town and I have a few cards in this series to show you over thew next few days. For this card I used the 6″ paper pad, and matching collectaboles, as well as a lovely satin ribbon, and it’s all mounted on stampin  up cardstock. today meanwhile, I have dug deep into the paper archives looking for papers to make little girl cards, ( there’s not  much in there for this genre!)and I have made a dozen, which Nathan and I will photo tomorrow.Til tomorrow….

Wedding card for my Niece

IMG_3022 (Medium)Tomorrow is the wedding day of my Niece and her Fiance, ( no blog tomorrow) so I thought I would show you all the card I made for them. The photo was taken with my little point and shoot, not our normal set up – but you get the general idea! I used a pearlescent cardstock,and embossed a strip for the bottom with a Stampin Up vintage embossing folder. The hearts were die cut and then embossed with two different folders, a strip of lace and ribbon,silver leaves punched out, and prima flowers and bling to finish.Til the day after tomorrow…..

Wedding Cuttlebug card

IMG_5369 (Medium)IMG_5374 (Medium)This is a card that I made for a friends wedding.I used two 6′ white cards, cut the fronts on the diagonal and stuck the backs together. I embossed the front triangles with a Hearts embossing folder, and punched the edges with  Marhta stewarts lace doily punch. I added some prima flowers, a flourish die cut and some white and silver ribbon. Then the card that i slipped into the pocket created by the shaped front – a seperate piece of white cardstock stampoed and silver embossed with a stampin up stamp, two die cut heart run through the cuttlebug in two different folders, and a little tag and flower and ribbon.I have shown a close up of the insert detail.The computer has decided to type in blue all underlined today, hopefully when I publish this it all looks normal!Til tomorrow..

White on White Wedding card – cuttlebug

IMG_5822 (Medium)There is nothing quite so classical ( and Classy) as white on white. If I am making a wedding card and I don’t know the colour theme for the wedding I always do white on white. The key here is to use texture to make the layers stand out. So – that’s embossing folders ( swiss dots and Vintage wallpaper from stampin Up on this one) foam pads for height, and lace, ribbon, pearls and assorted flowers for mor texture and interest. The little strip of gold embossed paper is from Kaisercraft After  5 6″pad. Tomorrow I am setting up my craft fair stall, so post may be a little late, and I will try to stick to daily blogs over the weekend to let you all know how I am going,getting quite excited now! Til tomorrow….

Cuttlebug – Wedding Card

IMG_5817 (Medium)For the next few days I will show you some wedding and Engagement cards I have been working on for my craft fair stall. This one makes the most of my cuttlebug, and I used 3 different embossing folders – Tied together ( couture creations) for the main background, and swiss dots ( Cuttlebug) and Vintage wallpaper ( stampin up) on the Hearts which were punched out with a Stampin Up punch. Spellbinders Floral Oval for the wording, and a ribbon bow, flowers and pearls to finish.The cardstock is Stampin Up Pool party, and pink pirouette. The nice thing about this design is you can change the colours to match the wedding theme! Til tomorrow….

A wedding card

I I did this card for an order, and the colour scheme was based on the colour scheme of the invitation – all cream and white.The cardstock is a lovely pearlescent cardstock, and the bottom of the card has a specialty paper that is very textured. I cut my hearts with an x-cut heart die, and added a heart buckle to my ribbon. I used a swiss dots embossing folder on the bottom heart for a little more texture, and just used peel offs for the sentiment which was stuck on to a spellbinders label 17 die cut which had been trimmed to size.All that was needed to finish were a few kaisercraft pearls.Sometimes it’s hard to know where to start when it comes to colours for a wedding card if you don’t know the Brides colour scheme, but in those situations I don’t think you can go wrong copying the colour scheme of the invitation – there’s usually a hint there!
