IMG_1070 (Medium)Here is the last for now of my Kaisercraft Velvet Crush series. I have really enjoyed working with this paper,the colours are great and so striking with black and white accents. For this one I have used the 6″ paper pad and the butterflies sticker sheet, and Stampin up cardstock, sentiment stamp and ribbon. Just a few kaisercraft rhinestones finished this one off.well, it was back to work today so no crafting for me tonight – just a quiet night in front of the tv is on the agenda! til tomorrow….

Velvet Crush number 6

IMG_1067 (Medium)I have a few more cards to show that I made with Kaisercraft Velvet Crush paper collection. This collection sold out very quickly at my local papercraft store,and I beleive kaisercraft are out of stock at the moment too, it’s been so popular.The colours are gorgeous I have to say… These few cards that I made are Mothers day cards – I start them early because I sell so many Mothers day cards – it’s busier than christmas for me!for this one I used the 12 x 12 papers, and i fussy cut some butterflies out of some of the paper, and there is a butterfly from the collectables there too. The sentiment, cardstock and ribbon are from stampin Up, I used an ek success border punch, and Kaisercraft rhinestones to finish.you could of course change the sentiment to suit your celebration. I am going to spend a good few relaxing hours in the craft room after tea making some engagement and wedding cards. i have pulled out some old collections that are suited to these themes, and I am ready to go! Til tomorrow….

Prima meadow Lark

A complete change of colour scheme today, with my new papers from Prima – Meadow lark. I do like lavenders, lilacs and mauves and I don’t think these colours are used enough! Here I have covered a card blank with some of the paper, and added matching flowers and a  chipboard piece which I stamped with Stampin Up Perfectly Penned sentiment, ribbon and Magnolia chandelier garland.I think the next day or two will be spent doing one last big push to complete some Mothers day cards. I might even dig out some older papers to see if I can finish a couple more collections we will see…Til tomorrow….

Nature garden 2 – For mum…

For this mothers day card I have used Prima Nature garden, and fussy cut on of the bird images from one of the sheets of patterned paper. I found a kaisercraft acrylic overlay in a drawer which went perfectly over the top for this design, and all i had to add was a length of gold lace. I spent a lovely morning at Paper flourish setting up my May lesson, and i plan to spend some time in my craft room tonight – I haven’t spent much time in there this week, and I have a few ideas I want to try out. Til tomorrow…..

Charlottes dream…

Here is a card with a couple of firsts… The first card I made with Kaisercrafts new paper collection – Charlottes dream, and the first card i made with my new die made by memory box called La Rue Flourish. It is the most dainty die – I worried that it wouldn’t work well through my cuttlebug, but I have purchased a metal adapter plate to add to the cuttlebug sandwich, and it works like a dream! I also used my well used Sizzix tattered florals ( a most popular addition to my cards – Every card with one of these flowers on it sold at the market today), Stampin up Bird punch for the leaves, and some gorgeous lace , which I just wanted to keep… to finish it off. As I mentioned a busy day at the market, and beautiful weather, but so tired now, I will just be sitting in front of the T.V. tonight.. Til tomorrow….

These days 5 – Mothers day

This is number 5 in my Kaisercraft These days  paper collection series, and although I still have a lot of cards in this collection to show, we will take a little break for a day or two before we come back to them. For this card I used a bit of a 12 x 12 sheet and a couple of the collectables which I edged in tea dye ink. I added acouple of randomly spaced Prima flowers.Today has been a lazy day with a bit of crafting, and I have been dying a few lengths of cream seam binding ready for my next projects.For now it’s back to the craft room. Til tomorrow….

Howdy doody 2

As I mentioned yesterday, this is my favourite paper – My minds Eye Howdy Doody  – at the moment, and I didn’t want to cut into this piece, so I’ve let the paper speak for itself ! I die cut the heart with my x – cut hearts die, and went right around the edge with lace, gathering as I went. The greeting is a stampin up stamp from my blessed Mother set, stamped onto stampin Up pool party cardstock and punched out with a stampin up decorative punch. i just added a little kindyglitz to highlight some flowers, and a few drops of white liquid pearls. Spent this morning with Mum at the shops, stocking up on lots of lovely lace, and then trying on ( and buying!) some new clothes – she is a very bad influence – I am sure she thought she was on a commission from the dress shop! a lovely day…. til tomorrow….

Field flowers

This is the first card I made with my new stamp set from Stampin Up Field Flowers. All products used are stampin Up – cardstock and ink – Calypso coral and pool party, and designer paper – everyday enchantment. The die is a stampin up sizzix die – top note. Very quick post tonight as its tea time, and, people are wondering here it is! Til tomorrow…..

Blossom party

A later post for me tonight as I have been out crafting with friends, and time just ran away, so here I am while tea ( late) is cooking…. I have done this card before in pinks, and I wanted to try a different colourway, and I like it! I have used – all stampin up cardstock – wisteria wonder, concord crush, and certainly celery. The die for the flowers is Sizzix stampin up Blossom Party, I punched the leaves with my stampin up bird punch, and I have used a Stampin Up vintage brad in the main flower and kaisercraft sparklet on the smaller ones.I think I might work my way through all my colourde cardstock making variations of this one as it’s so simple and looks effective. Welcome to my new subscriber, and til tomorrow…..
