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…

Kaisercraft Curiosity collection number 5

IMG_2986 (Medium) IMG_2986 (Medium)Still liking this paper a lot! I have combined the 6″ pad and a sheet or two of 12 x 12 paper to make this card – I didi a bit of fussy cutting out of the 12 x 12 papers,added some lace under the bottom layer and tied a big ribbon bow to finish. I have been in the craft room today making some cards with the new Prima paper I picked up the other day – Anna Marie , but after 6 cards I have packed it away because I also want to cut into the other range I purchase – Delight – its super vintage so I can dig out the ribbon and lace! Til tomorrow….

Prima Divine number 2

IMG_8856 (Medium)Straight off the bat I want to say that I saw the basic sketch for this design in a magazine and loved it so have done a few cards using this lay out of big banners. The paper is Prima Divine, and I used my Martha Stewart distress tool to really distress all the edges. I inked all sides with Tea dye distress ink, and added a prima flower, a ribbon bow and a sentiment using a stampin up stamp. Today I have been getting inky making teen boy cards. as I was creating I thought that this is truly the hardest group of people to make cards for – why? I think its because I know what teen boys like – my boys have told me – the inkier, grungier and graffiti covered the better – but the people buying these cards – usually mums and nans don’t particularly like this style at all. How to please both ? One son suggested two signs in my boxes – one that says cards teen boys will love, and the other cards you love for teen boys!I am still working on a happy medium! Til tomorrow….

Baby Girl cards

I made these Baby Girl cards a little while ago, but forgot to post them – The one on the left is a box style card, and both cards use a scrap of Bo Bunny paper I had left over from a collection I once bought. The Bear is a Hot off the press stamp which I stamped a couple of times onto pink patterned paper and then cut out and paper pieced  to achieve a 3d effect. I mounted it on a Spellbinders picot edge cirlce die in white. The rest of the card was easy – just some flowers,ribbons and buttons to complete the look! Til tomorrow….
