Sorry I have been missing a little bit this week, but I have been working extra hours due to the Christmas rush at work.Over the next couple of weeks I may be posting a little less due to the same reason. We are going back to my Ooh La La cards made with Kaisercraft Ooh La La paper collection and matching collectables. This is the paper I reached for when I damaged my shoulder and couldn’t do any die cutting – things have improved only a little but I have become adept at die cutting with my left hand, but still avoid it when I can! For this card I used papers from the 6″ pad., and layered them up, fussy cutting around the tops of the flower paper layer, and a tag from the pad. A collectables butterfly ,ribbon bow, kaisercraft pearls and green Tara flower all added texture. Til tomorow….

group of 3 fathers day cards
With fathers day just around the corner now I thought I would show this group of three fathers Day cards that I made using Simple Stories Awesome papers, and my Docrafts papermania Dad stamp. The general theme is the same, just swapped around the colours, and used Stampin Up cardstock for the base card. On all the cards i stamped the Dad stamp a few times and fussy cut the letters out to mix and match .Some flags were fussy cut from the papers, and twine and brads were also used. Today I finished some christmas card ideas I had floating around, and now I am ready to head to the craft room to create some bright sunny cards in the hope that it encourages the real thing to show itself – It has been an amazingly wet ,cold and dreary winter, and I am ready to see a little sunshine! Til tomorrow…
Prima Songbird number 4
The more I see this paper, the more I like it – tonights card ( using Prima Songbird 12 x 12 sheets) makes use of layering to achieve a different look, and I distressed all my edges and inked them all with a tim holtz antique linen ink pad. a prima flower and leaf and some blingy rhinestones finished the card. Quick post today as I am off to visit the tax man. Hopefully he finds some extra money for me! Til tomorrow….
Now for something completely different….
This morning I taught my class over at Paper flourish, and I want to thank my ladies for their patience today – I am suffering from a sore throat and fuzzy head, but we muddled through and got there in the end – Thank you all very much.Today I have put up 2 photos, the bottom photo is a close up of one of the cards. The story behind the cards – I picked up a bag of little dolls from my local cheap shop thinking they would look great on cards, brought them home and had these cards done in no time! the paper I used on all the cards is from the same 6 inch paper pad – Prima Yuki for Ruby Violet. It had all the colours I needed in the one pad – always exciting when that happens, and the only other thing I added was assorted ribbon. The sentiments were stamped with Stampin Up labels stamp and the punched out with stampin Up Decorative labels punch.No crafting for me tonight – just a quiet night in front of the T.V. with a hot lemon and Honey drink! Til tomorrow….
A bright card..
Here is a bright card to brighten up our dull, cold adelaide weather! The patterned paper is American Crafts amy tangerine Sketchbook, and the cardstock is stampin Up crumbcake. The banner across the top is die cut with spellbinders lacey pennant die, and I also used Stampin Up Blossom Party die for the flowers.The sentiment is stamped with stampin Up perfectly penned stamp. I had a thoroughly enjoyable day at the craft fair today, took my Mum with me to help out, and I had to stop her from spending all the profits at the other stalls – I hardly saw her all day!Tomorrow Kay ( my sister) is coming to give me a hand- I just hope I see more of her than I did of Mum! Til tomorrow….
