Three cards today because this post will be last one for ten days or so as I leave on my Cruise today. I am sure I have packed everything we will need for my craft classes, but if not we will improvise! Today’s cards are made with the Kaisercraft Oh so Lovely range and are the last three in this series. When I come back we will start a new series. On all three cards I relied heavily on the papers, just adding a little ribbon, lace and bling.Anyway, all stay safe until I get back! Bye for now…
My Cousin has headed off to England to spend a couple of years working over there, and I made her this frame to remind her how special she is! The paper collection is Kaisercraft Oh so Lovely, the flowers were Prima, but I have had them a long time, The acetate butterfly is from a kaisercraft sheet and I had the frame in my craft stash. I have just returned from the dentist where I had a filling replaced and I am wishing I had my cup of coffee before I went there.. I am off to look for a straw and then tackle the final bit of packing for the cruise. Til tomorrow…..
I have had this paper for a while, but I don’t think I had done anything with it until I stumbled upon it in the craft room a couple of weeks ago.. I wonder how many more collections are hiding in there waiting to be stumbled upon? I have started teaching some Shabby Chic classes at work but I am only a beginner myself so I just practised a bit on this card. I distressed all my edges, and then inked with Tea dye distress ink, and up in the left hand corner I used some Nuvo Glitter paste through a stencil just to see how that would work..not badly as it turns out! I added some random flowers in the lower left corner and some of the collectables from the collection to finish. I received all my boarding information today for the cruise I am teaching on next week, craft suitcases are packed, not long now!! til tomorrow…..
There is a story behind today’s card…When my son Daniel was home at Christmas he mentioned that a friend in his office wished she could have come home with him so that she could spend some time in my craft room and learn how to make cards, so before Daniel went back to Sydney I made up a bit of a kit for her and this card was the prototype of the kit I sent for her to put together. She has since made it and sent me a photo of her proudly holding it! In two weeks today I will be sailing the blue seas, but when I get back I will send her some more kits. Anyway, I should mention that this paper collection is Kaisercraft Oh so lovely ( an old collection but beautiful)and the associated collectables. For now I am off to prepare tea, til tomorrow….
