lotsFor my last Indigo skies make I did another card and box, lots of ribbon and lace, flowers and of course the fussy cut butterflies. I actually still have a lot of butterflies left over so you will see them pop up now and again on a card or two. I was quite pleased with the amount of makes I got out of my 3 sheets of patterned paper. Next time we move on to a few male themed cards I made – there has been a lack of men styled paper so far this year and so for these ones I have had to rely on stamps and dies!Til tomorrow…..
The last two items I made with the three Kaisercraft Indigo Skies paper that I purchased were cards and matching boxes, so I will show one today and we will finish the series with the other card and box tomorrow. For the card i die cut an oval from the patterned paper,added a fussy cut butterflies, and added flowers and a little bling. To decorate the box I added a die cut butterfly flourish ( paper rose die), ribbon, lace and another fussy cut butterfly. Til tomorrow….
I had some photo frames in my cupboard, just waiting for the right papers, and as soon as I saw this collection ( Kaisercraft Indigo skies) I knew this was the time to get them out of the cupboard. I used a piece of the 12 x 12 paper for the background and fussy cut a few butterflies to put in the frame. I only glued them by the centres, so that I could fold their wings up.On the left hand frame I added some lace, and leaves, but the one on the right was left a little simpler. There is a die cut flourish on both of them die cut with a Paper Roses die. I hope you enjoy looking at something a bit different from my usual cards! Til tomorrow….
For these next two cards, I used a Paper Roses stitched oval die to cut an aperture in the front of a card base, ( it’s easiest to do this with the patterned paper already attached). I put the resulting oval die cuts ( 1 plain card and 1 patterned paper) aside for another card. Decorated the inside panel with the wood panel patterned paper and a fussy cut butterfly, and the front with some fussy cut flowers and a pearl and ribbon. The second card made use of the plain die cut oval, a fussy cut butterfly , die cut birthday greeting ( in silver foil card) and bling! I had a hugely busy week working, so this weekend will be spent catching up around the house, but I don’t doubt that I will find some time to craft. Til tomorrow…..
I only purchased 3 sheets of this collection, and one of the sheets was covered with gorgeous blue butterflies, so immediately I fussy cut those(!)I managed to make a lot of different crafty items with my small purchase,and we will start with the standard cards today. The top card relies heavily on the papers, and I added lace down both sides of the banner and sprinkled rhinestones all over for some shiny bling. The bottom card only has a fussy cut butterfly from the collection, the rest is plain cardstock, with punched corners and a die cut corner butterfly flourish ( Paper Rose brand). Some glitter a ribbon bow and bling to finish. I am teaching tonight so heading in to work later this afternoon so for now I am going to head into the craft room, there is some new graphic 45 in there that is calling my name! This week has been full time hours at work, so I probably won’t get back here until Saturday, so I won’t say til tommorrow, I will say Stay safe until the weekend!
One of Kaisercraft’s new ranges this month is called Indigo Skies. Lots of blues and greys in this range, but because I had picked up so much of the other release ( High Tea) I only chose 3 sheets of this range because I knew I wouldn’t get the time to use it all. Anyway, I sat down with my 3 sheets and made 4 cards, also 2 cards with matching decorated boxes, and decorated these two frames. I will get Nathan to photo the rest properly, but I wanted to share my frames straight away. The butterflies are fussy cut from one of the Indigo Skies 12 x 12 sheets ( one full sheet of gorgeous butterflies to fussy cut..this sheet formed the basis for all my makes) and the background is from another sheet of the same range. Everything else – frames ( free with a magazine years ago),flowers,lace, pretty die cuts,lace and pearls string were all found in a rummage through my craft room. Today I must make a birthday card for my son Daniel so that I can get it in the post, and I have a lesson half completed on my desk which I will finish . Til tomorrow…..
