Final ( maybe) 2012 Christmas cards

IMG_4268 (Medium)I found these two cards in my photo files with the photos I am currebtly showing. I am not sure why I have made just two, they may have belonged to an order…. anyway here they are – My Minds Eye All is Bright patterned paper, and matching stickers, along with some bakers twine, button,and seam binding. The carrdstock is Stampin Up – cherry cobbler,baja breeze and crumbcake. I also used an EK success fan border punch.I have lots of new stamps and embossing folders, and dies sitting on my craft table, so tonight I am in the craft room creating! Til tomorrow…

Christmas All is Bright 9 and 10

Here are the last two cards in my My Minds Eye All is Bright series… tomorrow onto something else! The card on the left makes good use of the sticker sheet that matches this paper, and I have added a little seam binding. the cardstock is Stampin Up Cherry cobbler. The card on the right is purely paper, with some snowflakes die cut with Spellbinders 2012 snowflake pendant dies. The cardstock for this one is Stampin Up baja breeze. Nathan and I had a marathon photo session today, so tonight I will be sorting out all the photos, and will have new cards to put up. Til tomorrow….

Christmas All is Bright 7 and 8

My Minds Eye All is Bright papers, and stickers.For these two cards I have teamed them with Spellbinders 2012 snowflake pendant die, and after I had die cut the snowflakes I used the waste as a stencil on the card on the right hand side. inking through it to leave the snowflake pattern on the cardstock. I really liked this look, and it has made me look at my waste offcuts in a new light – you may see more of this technique on other cards!I also used doilies on these two cards, and a bit of bakers twine and seam binding.They are quite a modern look and will be good for the younger members of my family.The cardstock I used is Stampin Up – Crumbcake, cherry cobbler and Baja Breeze. I have found some graphic 45 christmas paper from last year (aptly called Christmas Past!) in my craft room – it hasn’t been cut into so I can only think that I bought it after I had made last years cards, anyway that’s what I am playing with today, and thoroughly enjoying myself – I do love Graphic 45! Til tomorrow…

All is Bright 1 and 2

We are back to christmas cards, these ones are a little different – lets call them shabby chic with a contemporary twist! The paper is My Minds Eye All is Bright and I have also used the matching brads,buttons and stickers.I have made a lot of cards with these papers, the ideas kept coming, and it made a nice change from green and red! I used Spellbinders 2012 snowflake pendant dies on these cards too, just the right amount of modern design in these dies.Also used – lace,seam binding, a doily, and bakers twine.Thats it for today – til tomorrow….
