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…

Kaisercraft Nature Breeze

_MG_1236_MG_1237_MG_1238_MG_1239 (Medium)Four cards this week, made with kaisercraft Nature Breeze. pretty  papers with gorgeous birdlife! Some fussy cutting, but not a piece of ribbon or lace to be seen! I have spent more time outside this week..the sun has been out in the afternoons, and it’s been lovely outside weather. I hope you are all staying safe, til next time….

More Uniquely Creative Gums and Roses…

IMG_2355IMG_2357IMG_2359IMG_2361IMG_2363This week I have made a few more cards with the Uniquely Creative Gums and Roses paper collection. I love our little Australian critters.. they are too cute! I haven’t added too much extra to these ones, the paper is so gorgeous on it’s own.. a little lace, ribbon and muslin ( frayed) and a couple of fabric flowers, and some lovely fussycutting! It has been a sunny week here so I have done a little gardening and sitting in the garden, but we are still not moving out of our comfort zone too much… til next time, stay safe….

Uniquely Creative Gums and Roses..

IMG_2347IMG_2349IMG_2351IMG_2352This weeks cards are so fresh the glue is not dry yet. I have been making these ones today… My friend Lydell did it again and came up with a gorgeous collection for Uniquely Creative called Gums and Roses. Yes, there are gums ( leaves) and roses but there is also the cutest little Aussie animals. I have added some die cutting, ribbon, bling and flowers, and enjoyed lots of fussycutting! I am off now to continue creating… til next time , stay safe…

Kaisercraft peppermint Kisses..

IMG_2328IMG_2330IMG_2333IMG_2334I have started Christmas cards! I have worked out a way to work my way through my stack of papers without losing interest! I just make a few cards from a collection and move on, so this week it is a kaisercraft collection from last year called Peppermint Kisses. I had the 6″ pad, collectables and a sheet of imagery (12 x 12) which I fussy cut. I didn’t add very much, just a ribbon, bit of lace and some glittery die cuts. It’s been very wet and windy here this week, perfect weather for staying inside next to the heater! i hope all is well in your world, til next time, stay safe…

Uniquely Creative Wise and Free..

_MG_1256 (Medium)_MG_1259 (Medium)_MG_1219_MG_1220Here are some more cards I made with Uniquely Creative Wise and Free paper collection and matching Creative cuts. I have added various die cuts that were on my desk waiting to be used, and ribbon, lace,just a few flowers ( on the lower card) and gorgeous little clear resin domes in the centre of some of the flowers. I often have die cuts on my desk waiting to be used because if I have scraps of paper that are too small for layering i will do some die cutting to use them up rather than throw them away, and it’s handy just to be able to grab them when I am in the middle of creating. It’s been another wet and windy week here, just lovely, and toasty warm inside now that we have our new heaters installed – its been perfect for crafting and I have a mountain of cards waiting for Nathan to photo..he can’t keep up! Til next time, stay safe….

Uniquely Creative Wise and Free

_MG_1248 (Medium)_MG_1249 (Medium)_MG_1250_MG_1254 (Medium)Today I have 4 cards that I made with Uniquely Creative Wise and Free papers. This is an Australian company ( although they do have some stockists in America) and it is close to my heart as friends of mine own it, and their designs are  my favourite style.On these cards I have added some die cutting and flowers,a scrap of ribbon but thats all.It’s been bitterly cold here, and we finally gave in and installed a couple of heaters. It is toasty warm in the house now and everyone is happy! restrictions have eased a bit but we are still socially distancing and only go out for necessities as I have elderly parents and want to keep them safe. Til next time, Stay safe,

Kaisercraft Sunkissed 4, 5 and 6…

_MG_1279 (Medium)_MG_1282 (Medium)_MG_1283 (Medium) Three more cards made with kaisercraft Sunkissed paper collection. I haven’t added anything else to these cards, the papers are all that is needed, and they are certainly bright and cheerful…just what we need this week, with all that is going on around us, and the weather here so very cold!Please stay safe, til next time….

Kaisercraft Sunkissed 1, 2 and 3..

_MG_1284 (Large)_MG_1277 (Large)_MG_1278 (Large)This weeks cards are made using kaisercraft Sunkissed..I thought after a week of rain and cold weather we could use a little brightness!We never complain about the rain though! All of these cards only use the 6″ pad and the matching collectables. I may have done a little fussy cutting, but nothing else has been added to these ones. My craft desk today is covered with ribbon, lace and flowers and I am working with some new Prima paper, so I am back in my comfort zone!Til next time, stay safe…..
