Another card made with Kaisercraft letters to santa, with the addition of a poinsetta die cut with paper Rose Poinsetta die, and a little branch of holly from a Kaisercraft die.I die cut an oval, edged it with tea dye ink matted some craft cardstock behind, and popped on a collectable from the kaisercraft letters to santa collection.The Noel sentiment is from the matching 6″ pad. It’s been a busy week and a busy morning, and I am aiming to clear the dining table of overspill projects from the craft room this morning, restore a bit of order! Til tomorrow….
Both of todays Zig Zag cards use the 6″ pad from Kaisercraft Letters to Santa for the layers, and the long borders on the sticker sheet for the smaller zig zag piece. The top card has an image from the 12 x 12 pull apart piece, and a ribbon bow and the bottom card has some fussy cut postage stamps from a 12 x 12 piece of paper and some gorgeous gathered lace as well! I have had an interesting morning in the craft room experimenting with my Go press and foil machine for a December class. I have discovered that clear acetate foils beautifully, and I have been spraying some foiled die cuts as well, and now to decide which techniques will make the cut into the class! For now though it’s tea time! Til tomorrow….
And we are back to Kaisercraft letters to santa, and the last few cards in this series are z-fold cards.The top card has papers from the 6″ pad decorating the panels, a Christmas Tree collectable ( painted a little with Kindyglitz), and a greeting from the sticker sheet. the second card also has papers from the 6″ pad decorating the panels, and the smaller z-fold strip has a long sticker from the sticker sheet across it. The greeting is from the 6″ pad. This weekend I must sort out the cruise cards, working out what is left to prepare for them and I am going to get out the go press and foil machine and try some other techniques with it for a forthcoming class at paper Flourish. I want to see what other materials we can foil with it so should be a good experiment! til tomorrow…..
Another Gatefold card today, using papers from the 6″ pad, some pretty lace and a couple of Kaisercraft die cut Christmas trees which I embossed with Nuvo gold embossing powder. The bottom card has another two Die cut trees, this time just touched with some Kindyglitz, and I hand cut a bit of a hilly background from white glitter card. the collectables on this card are from the Letters to Santa range. Til tomorrow…..
Hello There! continuing on with my Kaisercraft Letters to Santa series, the top card uses the 6″ pad, collectables and ribbon, as well as some kindyglitz for shimmer, and some red Nuvo drops for my berries. The lower card is a gatefold design, with papers from the 6″ pad and images from the 12 x 12 pull apart sheet, and a couple of the collectables as well. I like doing gatefold cards for Christmas cards because it’s quick and easy to decorate the inside panel rather than having to stop and prepare an insert ! Quick post this afternoon, I will sign off now and go and prepare some dinner, til tomorrow….
Today I have used the 6″ pad on both cards, even the fussy cutting elements, with the exception of the santa image which comes from the pull apart 12 x 12 sheet. I have used the Nuvo drops on all my red berries, and added some gorgeous ribbon and lace on the second card ( which is a little blurry…Nathan must have sneezed!). As usual every thing is inked around the edges with my go-to distress ink which sits on my desk..Tea Dye. All packed and ready to head out to my monthly craft and chat gathering, gee time flies, it just seemed like last week we were all together! til tomorrow….
After a short break we are back to Christmas Cards! This series is a big one so i am going to post these ones 2 at a time. The paper collection is Kaisercraft Letters to santa, and I purchased the 6’pad, 12 x 12 papers and the collectables so on most of these cards you will see a bit of all these elements. The top card is 6″ pad on the base, collectables in the corners and the image is from a piece of 12 x 12 paper fussy cut and inked around the edges with tea dye distress ink. I foiled a piece of kaisercraft wooden flourish with green foil and added red berries with some Nuvo drops. I used the same products on the second card with the addition of ribbon and lace. We have had some lovely weather here this week, so I have spent a little bit of time sitting in the garden enjoying the sun on my face, but today I am going to do some seriuos die cutting of flowers and leaves because I want to master the art of flower shaping..I think that is something I could do in the evening while watching tv, and it will put my many flower dies to good use too…Til tomorrow….
