Prima Tea Thyme number 7

IMG_3669 (Medium)When I use 6″ paper pads, I always end up with 2″ strips left over, so for this card I used 2 of the strips, and ran some lace down the join. The paper , flowers and chipboard are all from the Prima Tea Thyme range, and I added a little bling flourish.I am making good headway sorting through my old papers, making the occasional card as I go, and collecting a little pile to give to my sister ( who has just started making cards) and my mum. I will have a little break tonight as I bought some gorgeous wool today, have dug out my knitting needles, and am going to start on a scarf ready for winter! Til tomorrow….

Prima songbird 5 and 6

Here are 2 cards, same design , just different colourways. Still using my limited supply of Prima songbird paper, and punched a border with an ek success border punch. I added a seam binding ribbon, prima flower and some strips of bling.It’s shopping night tonight, but I am hoping to get into the craft room for a little while as I have an idea for a class card I want to try out – til tomorow…

Prima Songbird number 1

Yesterday while I was teaching my lesson I discovered that the new Prima collections were in store, so I purchased quite a bit of paper! When I got home I realised that I hadn’t even cut into some of the previous Prima releases, and so today I rectified that! I decided that I couldn’t touch the new stuff until I had at least played with some of the older collections and took out all my Prima Songbird paper ( which only turned out to be 4 sheets – not sure why thats all I bought of this collection – it’s gorgeous – I can only think that by the time I saw it this is all that was left of it) . Anyway I had 4 sheets, One was immediately fussy cut into lots of bits and pieces, which left 3 pieces for backing and matting. I made 11 cards, and that is another collection finished.Over the next couple of days I will show all the cards I made with my 4 sheets, as Nathan was very obliging and photoed them for me this afternoon – a couple of them were still drying! This card was the last one I made and it’s my favourite. I had very little paper left, so dug out my stamps to come up with this one. The bird stamp is stampin up young vermillion ( a favourite), and the leafy background is from the stampin up just believe set. The with love greeting is from stampin up field flowers set. Inks used were stampin up certainly celery,choc chip,baja breeze, and ranger tim holtz antique linen. I added white seam binding,prima flowers,and white perfect pearls to finish. I am on a creative roll now, so am heading back into the craft room to start on another collection. Til tomorrow….

Magnolia grove number 5

Here is todays card which is the last in my kaisercraft Magnolia grove series. I have used the 6″ pad today with a label from the matching collectables pack. I added a vintage rose, prima flowers, and liquid pearls and lace . With my cuttlebug I cut a memory box Fauntleroy crest and a couple of flowers with my sizzix tim holtz tattered flower garland die.The greeting is stamped using a stamp from my stampin Up perfectly penned set.I think all the travelling has caught up with me today as I am a bit tired, so I will have a break from the card room tonight and watch some T.V. I think… 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….

Back to These days..

After a short diversion we are back to Kaisercraft Papers – These days. I think this is card number 6 with these papers – I have lost count…. A lot of matting on this one – 2 lots of papers from the 6″ paper pad, and a couple of doilies – one which I cut on my cuttlebug. The flowers are prima flowers and I added a flourish also cut on the cuttlebug and a strip of lace. The flower in the centre of the big flower is a kaisercraft brand – this is quite a new line for them, but they are terrific to use in the centre of flowers as an alternative to brads.Maybe time to get in the craft room tonight, Til tomorrow…..

These Days…

Today we are going to start a bit of a series using kaisercraft these days paper collection and the matching collectables. On this card I added prima flowers and some lace.I edged around the collectable die cut with some ranger tim holtz antique linen. shopping night tonight, so very quick post.. Til tomorrow….

A valentines day card

This is number 6 in my Kaisercraft Sweet Nothings collection. All the different papers and tags are from the 6″ pad, and I just added some lovely Prima flowers and a ribbon bow. A very busy day at work at work, and I am soooo tired.. No crafting tonight but I now have 2 days off so I will get in there tomorrow! Til tomorrow….

Sweet Nothings 4

I have been making cards with this paper all week and I still haven’t wanted to move on yet – I think its because there are so many different colours in the collection. It is kaisercraft Sweet Nothings and here I have used the 6″ pad and a couple of 12 x 12 sheets. The flower and leaves are from Prima and I added a little ribbon as well. Til  tomorrow…..

More English Rose

Here are the other two cards i made while I had the Kaisercraft English Rose paper out. I used Stampin Up cardstock ( pink Piroutte) for the bases, and my Stampin Up bird punch, Martha Stewart lace doily punch, prima flowers, hand rolled flowers, ribbon and bling. Settling back into work, what a rude shock to the system! Many books in the stockroom still in boxes, but I have been given some help, so we should be caught up by next week! Til tomorrow….
