Pickled Pear and labels die

IMG_8814 (Medium)For this card, I covered the front of a 6″ card with Kaisercraft Pickled Pear paper, and then Die cut a window in it using one of the Stampin Up Labels die. I covered the inside of the card with more paper from the same ( gorgeous) collection, and decorated the inside and out with flowers, fussy cut butterflies, and a leafy branch that I stamped on to Acetate and cut out, using one of the stamps from Kaisercraft Pickled pear stamp set. Tomorrow we will go back to Kaisercraft flora¬† delight paper, for now I am off into the craft room – I haven’t been well this week, but much better today, and feel in the mood for some crafty therapy! Til tomorrow….

Lavender haze and Labels Dies

IMG_8816 (Medium)I had started a new series yesterday, but I have abandoned it for the moment as one of my Ladies requested some ideas for useing her Stampin Up labels dies. i have come up with a few quick cards which i will show over the next couple of days. Here is the first, an easel card, Kaisercraft lavender haze 6 ” pad and collectables, but any paper will do – this ideas works for most, and stampin Up labels dies, cut twice in ever smaller sizes! a bit of glitz and rhinestones and finished! Over my tummy bug now but still a bit weak, so no craft room for me! Til tomorrow….

Apothecary art stamp set number 4

This is the last in my apothecary art stamp set series, and its a very simple one. The cardstock was Stampin up basic grey and blushing bride ( I did mention I was haveing a pink and grey period) and the stampin up designer paper is Twitterpated. The labels were die cut with Stampin Up labels collection.I just added a little ribbon, and coloured the stamped image subtly with ink pads and a blender pen.I have some new Kaisercraft paper that i got a couple of weeks ago, and haven’t cut into yet, so tonight I will be found in the craft room if it’s not too cold in thwere! Til tomorrow….

Apothecary Art stamp set

Stampin Up have a great new little catalogue out, and I have bought quite a lot from it as I love the papers and stamps they have come up with so over the next few days you will be seeing what I have made with my new purchases! ¬† Todays card are made using the Apothecary Art stamps, and the Labels Collection die , which fit exactly to the stamps – no fussy cutting involved! I have coloured the images with my ink pads and a blender pen,and haven’t been too fussy – just quickly colouring over more to tint , and matted all on a piece of Soft suede cardstock, cut using the next size up in the labels dies.The background paper is Stampin Up Attic Boutique designer papers. the other side of this paper had gorgeous big roses on it, so it was a hard decision to use this side! A bit of punched greenery( martha Stewart punch) , flower and lace on one card and just the lace on the other.This stamp set has great potential, and I am looking forward to finding some more time in the craft room to create more with it1 Very early post today as I am teaching over at the retirement village this evening and I still have to get all my gear together! Til tomorrow…P.S. if you are interested in one of the Stampin Up mini catalogues, contact Kay – there is a link to her blog on the right hand side of my blog.
