Goodbye to Kaisercraft blae and Ivy..

IMG_7613 (Medium)IMG_7614 (Medium)Today we say goodbye to Kaisercraft Blae and Ivy collection. I took it out for a last play, and the leftover papers in this collection have gone into the pile to sort and sell at Junes craft fair. I love the blue card at the top of the post – I used my Stampin Up bird punch, kaisercraft numbers die set,lace and ribbon for this one and the card below has prima flowers,ribbon, lace and bling.Thats another paper collection played with for the last time and culled! Just at least 100 to go!Now is the time for me to start on my Mothers day cards, so i should be able to get through a few collections in the next few weeks. For now though I am off to Paper Flourish to collect some supplies for March lessons. Til tomorrow…..

Mainly Dies and cuttlebug

I found this lattice die during an on line browse, and now that I have it, I have forgotten what brand it is! Sorry, can anyone help with that? Anyway its a great die, and perfect for floral themed cards. The paper I used was frpm Kaisercrafts Blae and Ivy range, and I also used my sizzix butterfly die, and Stampin Up swirls die. Martha stewart punch and an assortment of flowers completed the look. Back to xmas cards today, quite enjoying making them so I must have just needed a break from them for a few days! Til tomorrow…..

Group of three cards

Today I taught a lesson over at Paper Flourish, and as ever had a good time, and some laughs with my group of mature ladies. Last Friday I taught a lesson at the retirement village and the three cards here are the cards we made. We used kraft cardstock, and Kaisercraft Blae and Ivy 6″ paper pad, along with nestabilities Labels eight dies,assorted flowers,ribbon, sentiment stamps, liquid pearls -platinum, and a stampin up bird punch. Well I only got three of my xmas cards made last night as I got distracted (who knew that would happen?) and ended up making quite a few non xmas related cards. I can see its going to be a long journey for the xmas card making! Til tomorrow…..

Blae and Ivy number 4

Well here goes. Hopefully this works tonight, we had lots of trouble last night getting the photo into the post, so if it doesn’t work tonight it will have to wait til tomorrow I’m not game to tell my techie I’ve still got problems! Anyway… Todays card is the last in my Kaisercraft Blae and Ivy series (for now) I also used the lovely stamps that were released with this paper, and stampin up cardstock and my martha stewart punch. I will be playing some more with this paper but it will be a retirement village lesson.Til tomorrow….

Fourth time lucky!

This is the fourth time I have typed this blog today . I don’t know where they are disappearing to but they are not on my blog! My techie support is not being very supportive, in fact is a bit annoyed with me but its not my fault! Anyway as I have said a few times now I am jumping about abit this week, but wanted to show the other two cards i made using Kaisercrafts new paper Blae and Ivy. On this card I also used Kaiercraft rub ons, prima swirl bling, Nestabilities label eight, assorted flowers and leaves, platinum liquid pearls and my little corner rounder. We had a good class today, and now I am planning my village class which will involve these kaisercraft papers. Til tomorrow….

Blae and Ivy

I admit I’m addicted to paper, so its always exciting when I see Kaisercrafts monthly new releases. This one is called Blae and Ivy, and it nearly defeated me as its not colours that I usually work with, but the cards I have so far made with it are my favourites at the moment! I couldn’t find any grey flowers, so I dyed some white ones using a drop of Tim Holtz Weathered wood distress ink reinker in a mister with some water and liberally spraying. I was most impressed with the results and will be using that technique again. I used my sizzix stampin up leaves die, stampin up basic grep cardstock,martha stewart lace doily punch, and ribbon, and when the card was all together I brushed some clear perfect pearl powder on the flowers to lift them a little bit. Today has been all about using up old collections, and many cards later I can say that I have no more kaisercraft candy lane left.. a bit sad really….Til tomorrow..
