Side stepper card

IMG_0027 (Medium)Today’s card is a side stepper card made with Kaisercraft Madamoiselle paper collection. I used a cut out from a 12 x 12 piece of paper from the collection, and all the other little bits are from the collectables pack. The sentiment is die cut with akaisercraft die (Occasions) as is the foilage, and I added a Prima flower, and some lace and a ribbon bow. I have instructions on how to make the side stepper card on my You Tube channel..Helens card designs. I picked up a few pices of new paper today from the Kaisercraft new release called Sage and Grace, lovely soft colours, so now just have to find some time to sit down with it! Til tomorrow….

Tool Box side stepper card

IMG_6284 (Medium)I had the idea for this tool box card,and spent a little time working out the cuts and folds, it is a basic side stepper card,with only one side step – usually you have a couple of steps on the right hand side, but this one only has the one valley fold. I cut matching cardstock for the drawers on the left hand side, and added a fine strip of silver cardstock to the tops of the drawers. On the right hand side i cut a piece of yellow cardstock and punched holes to resemble pegboard, then it was just a matter of stamping ( stampin up tools stamps) my tools.Really pleased with how this one worked out and hopefully find some time to make a couple more before my craft fair in June! This morning I dropped our little puppy Luna off at the vet for her desexing operation, and I feel terrible!I hope she forgives me! the house is very quiet without her and I can’t wait to pick her up this afternoon.I am heading into the craft room to take my mind off it all…til tomorrow….
