Playing with my new dies…

I can never resist buying new dies for my cuttlebug. I think they are a good investment, and I can always justify a purchase by telling myself I will run a class using them! This card  uses two Cheery Lyn Design dies – tropical Flourish and Lattice number 2. The paper I used  here is Kaisercraft The Lake House and a matching collectable inked around the edge with spun sugar distress ink. I just  added  a ribbon  bow to finish.I still have a few cards made using  this paper that I haven’t shown yet – this is number 10 -I certainly have got my moneys worth out of this paper!I will spend a little time in the craft room tonight – I have an idea for another Fathers day card then I am ready to move on! Til tomorrow….

The lake House number 9

Still working with kaisercraft The Lake House collection – this time the 6″ pad and matching collectables. I inked all the edges with my distress inks, and added some little flowers die cut with my Tim Holtz tattered florals garland die, and some kaisercraft rhinestones. Quick post tonight as I have to get my bags ready for our big xmas cards for the troops marathon tomorrow. It should be a very busy day with a goal of 200 cards to reach – I will let you know if we reach it! Til tomorrow….

The Lake House collection number 8

We are back to kaisercraft Lake House collection, which was their paper release last month, and I have enjoyed coming up with lots of different cards using this paper. For this one I  covered the front of some Stampin Up Blushing Bride cardstock, after punching the right hand edge with my martha stewart lace doily edger, and decorated it with a couple of pieces from the matching collectables.Just added a greeting stamp and ribbon bow to finish.Things are coming along nicely in the craft room regarding the boys cards, so now I am thinking of having a rummage and bringing out some older papers to see if I can finish off a collection or two to make room in my shelving system for more new papers which are going to hit the shop shelves soon  due to all the gorgeous new releases coming out in America.Til tomorrow….

The Lake house 3

Still using the 6″ pad from Kaisercraft The Lake House,I fussy cut around the flower sheet, and also cut a couple of extra flowers to pop on top with mounting squares. I added some ribbon, a stick pin, and flower, and used some liquid pearls and kindyglitz to decorate, and also slipped in a die cut from the matching collectables pack.The cardstock is Stampin Up Early Espresso.I am busy this week coming up with some lesson ideas,but also very busy at work, so a bit tired when I get home, already looking forward to the weekend when I intend to craft a lot! Til tomorrow….
