Every now and again I pull out an older paper range, in this case Kaisercraft Curiosity and do something a little different with it, or team it with new stamps and inks. For this group of cards I made shaped cards. I have done a you tube clip for the box card shape – I fiddled with the measurements so that it will fit in a standard envelope for posting. The link to the clip is on the right hand side of my blog. I think I have done one for the stepper card as well… must check,if not I will get on to that! For the decorating, all was done with just the papers with a bit of fussy cutting and a couple of the matching collectables.A day off today, but a very busy morning, looking forward to a couple of hours relaxing in the craft room! til tomorrow….
Well I am glad to say we are back to normal after a few days of Nathan tearing his hair out, and muttering technical things that I didn’t understand! This is the last two cards I have made with kaisercraft Curiosity and I can’t believe I have made 19 cards with this paper,and I enjoyed making every one of them! it’s not often that I make that many with one collection,which just goes to prove I loved this paper.One day I will return to it and finish off the bits and pieces I have left.And the most amazing thing is I have used minimal extra embellishing. Truly a great collection.The two cards shown here use all 6″ pad papers and tags, some fussy cut bits and a collectable ( one of the butterflies).Til tomorrow….
I’m back, but still a few glitches as you can see, but it’s better than it was!Hopefully by tomorrow all will be restored.Todays cards are still Kaisercraft Curiosity, and we just have a couple more do and then will move on. Both cards use the 6″ paper pad, and the images are from a 12 x 12 paper.the only extras on the card on the right are ribbon and a die cut from berry vine die ( kaisercraft).We had a very warm weekend, and a couple of birthdays in the family to celebrate, but I did get into the craft room for an afternoon and planned out a village lesson.I also squeezed in a visit to Paper Flourish ( I just went for double sided tape and 450 glue) and saw the new Prima papers which i just couldnt resist, so came home with lost of new goodies! til tomorrow….
Today we are back to kaisercraft curiosity paper collection and matching collectables.I was going to leave these for a little while, but I know that Janice ( a lovely lady from America) has scoured the net looking for this collection, and it is on her way to her as we speak, so I thought I would put up a few more ideas for her. These two cards are side stepper cards,( have I done a youtube clip for this style of card?) and I just needed the papers and collectables to decorate, although having said that there is a die cut ( Kaisercraft die) on the top card cut from gold card.It’s a lovely day here and a day off. the shopping is done so i am off to the craft room. Til tomorrow….
This is the last of Kaisercraft Curiosity for a little while. I thought I would finish off with a couple of card in boxes.Most of the images are cut from the 12 x 12 papers and 6″ pad, and there a re a couple of collectables there too, but that’s it – no other embellishing required. The card on the left is earmarked for my dads 84th birthday next week,he loves seeing my creations and will enjoy examining this one to see how I put it together! I didn’t get as much crafting done yesterday as I thought I would, but saw lots of family members over at mum and dads, so it was a most enjoyable day.The weather here is so much better – quite cool and so I have popped a roast in the oven, I have missed my weekly roasts! til tomorrow….
Kaisercraft curiosity collection, with a lot of fussy cutting from the 12 x 12 papers and just a ribbon bow for some extra texture. tomorrow will be the final two cards with this collection ( for now, anyway), and they are special card in a box cards.Today is the first day in quite a while that I don’t have any pressing engagements, and it’s lovely to just relax and fritter the time away! I have straightened up my craft desk, things tend to get piled on top of each other on there during the week and then on the weekend I have to spend a little while putting things in their proper place before I can start creating, but that’s done and now I am going to go and contemplate which paper collection I am going to create with today. It’s going to be a lovely day! Til tomorrow….
Oops! you all saw the 21st card yesterday! I liked it so much I put it up again!!!( technical glitch). The paper collection and matching collectables is Kaisercraft Curiosity, and I did a bit of fussy cutting,and just added a touch of ribbon and lace. I am glad I decided to go back and use the paper I have because I haven’t bought any paper yet this year..( I know!!). So far nothing has grabbed my imagination,but I am hoping that changes when all the american new releases hit our stores.Meanwhile this morning i am off to teach a lesson, so must go and get organised. Til tomorrow….
Today I am revisiting and old favourite – kaisercraft Curiosity collection.I have just used the papers and collectables, a bit of ribbon and a brass key on the lower card. A bit of my favourite – fussy cutting too! I have a lot of this paper so after making some cards with this I popped it back into the shelves, to revisit again another time. I might get it out for some mothers day cards! Til tomorrow…..
number 6 in my kaisercraft curiosity collection – one more tomorrow and then we will move on….a couple of layers fromthe 6″ pad on this one, and some fusswy cutting from one of the 12 x 12 papers. the butterfly is from the pack of collectables, and I stamped a sentiment on a die cut from the 6″ pad.A couple of pearls in opposite corners and this one is complete. I have been creating this weekend – moved on from the new prima papers to some simple stories xmas paper, but i am going to put my thinking cap on now and think up some lessons for november…. til tomorrow….
I did quite a bit of fussy cutting on this card – The flowers were fussy cut from a piece 0f the 12 x 12 papers ( all paper is from Kaisercraft curiosity collection) and the have a lovely gloss finish on them.I also fussy cut the butterflies and the border. I layered up a couple of labels from the collectables pack, and added some lace and ribbon to finish.Taught a lovely class of ladies today, always nice to finish the working week having fun! til tomorrow….
