The Last prima songbird ( number 10 and 11)

Well this is it. The last two cards from my Prima Songbird patterned paper series. 11 cards from 4 sheets of paper was pretty good, and I only have little scraps left.I used stampin up sentiment stamps on these two, and trimmed with lace, seam binding, prima flowers,liquid pearls and bling strips. Tomorrow I might check if there are any more Fathers day cards in my files to be shown, for those of you that have left your cards til the last minute!Til tomorrow….

Thank You card

Still using the Fine and Sunny kaisercraft range of papers and collectables today ( the last one) and I stamped the sentiment with a Stampin Up stamp from the Perfectly penned set. I dyed some seam binding and tied it a ribbon and added it to the top of the card.We had a lovely lesson today, and my girls did a great job of following my garbled instructions! The great news is that I am doing a few extra lessons next month, so giving up my other job is a goal that is getting closer! Til tomorrow….

The Lake house 3

Still using the 6″ pad from Kaisercraft The Lake House,I fussy cut around the flower sheet, and also cut a couple of extra flowers to pop on top with mounting squares. I added some ribbon, a stick pin, and flower, and used some liquid pearls and kindyglitz to decorate, and also slipped in a die cut from the matching collectables pack.The cardstock is Stampin Up Early Espresso.I am busy this week coming up with some lesson ideas,but also very busy at work, so a bit tired when I get home, already looking forward to the weekend when I intend to craft a lot! Til tomorrow….

Rue des Fleurs number 4

This card was so simple – Baja breeze ( stampin Up) cardstock, Stampin Up attic boutique designer paper, and the Rue Des fleurs stamp set. The die used for the label was stampin Up decorative labels die, and I lightly coloured the image with inks and a blender pen and sponged the edges with so saffron ( stampin Up) ink..I do like this particular stamp, and when I get home from my trip I look forward to doing some more with it! Til tomorrow….

Rue Des fleurs 2

here is number 2 in my Stampin Up Rue Des Fleurs stamp set series. I also used Stampin Up attic Boutique designer paper, and so saffron an very vanilla cardstock. I stamped with choc chip ink, and added a few Kaisercraft pearls. You will notice a flourish design on the very vanilla cardstock – that was created by sponging so saffron ink through a piece of paper that I had previously die cut a die-namics fancy flourish from – I just used the waste as a stencil… nothing wasted here! Til tomorrow….

Rue Des Fleurs number 1

Stampin Up have a great mini catalogue running just now, and I have bought lots of new stuff from it  and this stamp set and paper are two of my purchases. The stamp set is called Rue Des Fleurs and I love it so over the next few days you will see what I have created with it so far… The paper is also stampin Up – attic boutique. The fancy trim behind the main element is a stamp from the set – its quite neat because the design of the stamp allows the image to be interlocked to make a long border strip and I stamped it in choc chip ink. I stamped the main image with choc chip as well, and I die cut a label using spellbinders label 14. The flourishes are from a die-namics die – fancy flourish. The cardstock is Stampin Up – early espresso and so saffron. I also inked around my label eges in so saffron.In fact looking more closely I think I inked around everything….A busy day today, organising my market boxes to see what cards I am short of – still have a few to make for that….. and as I am off to Canberra with my sister next week for a great girly holiday scrapping and cardmaking and hopefully learning lots of new techniques that I can translate into lessons and cards I thought I would schedule my posts for that time ahead so that my blog will still be posting even if I am not here. Anyway I am so excited cos I actually worked it out myself without any help from my techie son Nathan! This evening – more cards! Til tomorrow….
