The simplest card!

_MG_0105 (Medium)Here is the simplest card I have made in quite some time! White cardstock, a Stampin Up 3D embossing folder ( so gorgeous) a length of ribbon, lace , 3 little flowers and some pearl bling. This card would be perfect for a wedding card that had to be posted, but I think I will give it to my mum for Mothers day. Sorry for the late post this weekend, but I got completely sidetracked cleaning out my crafting supplies – it was time for a spring clean and I haven’t  even scratched the surface yet. I have a little bubble of an idea forming for making card kits, but will have to pop it on the back burner until after the June fair. I will keep you all posted! Til next time….

Yesterday – Indigo Skies on the craft table..

IMG_7101 (Medium) One of Kaisercraft’s new ranges this month is called Indigo Skies. Lots of blues and greys in this range, but because I had picked up so much of the other release ( High Tea) I only chose 3 sheets of this range because I knew I wouldn’t get the time to use it all. Anyway, I sat down with my 3 sheets and made 4 cards, also 2 cards with matching decorated boxes, and decorated these two frames. I will get Nathan to photo the rest properly, but I wanted to share my frames straight away. The butterflies are fussy cut from one of the Indigo Skies 12 x 12 sheets ( one full sheet of gorgeous butterflies to fussy cut..this sheet formed the basis for all my makes) and the background is from another sheet of the same range. Everything else – frames ( free with a magazine years ago),flowers,lace, pretty die cuts,lace and pearls string were all found in a rummage through my craft room. Today I must make a birthday card for my son Daniel so that I can get it in the post, and I have a lesson half completed on my desk which I will finish . Til tomorrow…..

Kaisercraft telegraph road number 1

IMG_2088 (Medium)this months release from kaisercraft is Telegraph road, and I have only had a quick session with these papers so far but thought I would put up what I have done so far. For this card I used the 6″ pad and a couple of the collectables from the pack. I inked all my edges with spun sugar distress ink, and added a ribbon bow and some pearls.quick and easy this one! Til tomorrow…

Vintage graphic 45 a ladies diary

While we are on graphic 45 a ladies diary, I will continue on, and show the other two in this group, today and tomorrow. Can you tell I really like this paper? it didn’t take long for my thoughts to turn to fussycutting, which is what I did with the rose and mounted it with foam pads. I hand cut a circle, and roughly cut it into a spiral and rolled it to make the flower on top of the Chipboard piece ( still in the Graphic 45 a ladies diary collection) . I gathered some lace across the card, and stuck a srtip of paper across the top of that and then all I had to do was bling it all up with kaisercraft pearls and kindyglitz . Tonight I am looking forward to rummaging around in my Xmas boxes. I thought I only had one tub, but have discovered that I actually have two and if I don’t use some of this papers etc I am not going to be able to justify buying any new stuff this year! That would be a disaster! Til tomorrow….
