A little break from all things Christmas today. I recently had the pleasure of roadtesting some new Kaisercraft dies for my local craft shop – Paper flourish, and one of the dies is featured here on todays card. I was most impressed with the quality of the dies, and particularly liked the way they fell off the die without very much persuasion at all!Here I have used it as it was intended – just die cut a couple of feathers and inked around the edges. On other cards I used the negative cut to sponge through onto my paper( which worked brilliantly) and ran other feathers through the die cutting machine in an embossing folder which also worked a treat, so lots of use from this die!The bird stamp on this card is by oxford impressions,and the flower is Prima. sentiment stamp,ribbon and linen thread are all from stampin up. til tomorrow….
Kaisercraft Magnolia grove number 2… Again I have used the 12 x 12 papers, and the matching collectables. The sentiment is Stampin Up perfectly penned ( love that stamp) and in the top corner I have done a little arrangement with one of my hand crocheted doilies ( still learning – don’t look too closely) , ribbon, and prima flower and prima petals pin – these were new in my local craft shop the other day and I couldn’t resist them…. Til tomorrow….
This is the last of my cards using Kaisercraft sweet Nothings, tomorrow we will move on if Nathan has time to photo some new cards… Here I used the 6″ pad, a collection of Prima flowers, spellbinders Picot edges and labels 8, stampin up Bird punch for the leaves, and a few drops of liquid pearls. Tonight if my back holds out I will be in the craft room making engagement and wedding cards for an order..Til tomorrow..
Today I have gone back to a kaisercraft Paper collection called sweet nothings. I have already posted a few cards made with this paper and I have a couple more in my file. here I used the 6″ paper pad and decorated with Prima flower and leaves, and a little ribbon. I installed my new most amazing shelving unit last night and it is full.. Now I can’t fit another one in my little room, so I am going to have to work very hard to use up the papers I have before I buy more. I think I hear my sister Kay snickering in disbelief…Til tomorrow..
I have called this one number 6 but I can’t remember what number we got up to in the Kaisercraft madame Boutique range. This card has ended up looking like a box of chocolates, but I don’t think that’s a bad thing…. I do love the prima flower. I also added ribbon. Such a busy week, but we are almost there now, tonight Daniel and I are going out to pick up my most amazing shelving unit from a friend whos’ husband built it for me. It has 24 shelves and is 4′ high, so I will be able to store my 12 x 12 papers and actually be able to see them … so excited…. Til tomorrow…
This is the final card in my echo park Victoria gardens series. I have enjoyed working with this collection, and I still have plenty of paper left, so I will still be using it, but after posting 9 cards of the same collection, I’m pretty sure you are all ready to move on! I also used a prima flower, platinum liquid pearls, a Martha stewart punch and my Cricut with the Heritage cartridge to cut the cameo. Tonight I am still working on a couple of xmas designs for next months village class, and then a night in front of the T.V. I think.. til tomorrow…..
Todays card uses a new paper – Butterfly Garden by Pink Paisley. I only made a couple of cards with this paper because I used the rest to make Birthday books which i will get Nathan to photograph this weekend, and hopefully be able to show you all next week.As well as the pink paisley paper I used a Prima flower, and websters pages lace, and used my versamark pen on the ladies dress, and brushed it with perfect pearls powder – my newest purchase – and I’m loving the effect! Til tomorrow….
I’m back! My husband and I went away to robe for Easter, and had a lovely relaxing time,with lots of walks, and fresh air, and a little cardmaking thrown in – it actually took me longer to pack my craft bag than my suitcase of clothes! Meanwhile my techie son was working on my computer, and quite a few things have changed – the keyboard, the mouse, and I think I have windows 7 now. Its taking a little getting used to, and I can’t find where he has put some things, but I’ll get there! Todays card uses Prima Madeline collection papers and stickers ‘ a prima flower and a kaisercraft swirl. This week will be a lot of Mothers day cards on the blog – I didn’t know I made and photographed so many. Til tomorrow……
