Today we say farewell to my Lemoncraft Paper makes, and these three are made in the same way as the cards on the previous post. I have used a lot of the molds that I made on these cards, and I painted them with prima alchemy paints. I have been busy finishing off my January classes, and they are done now so I have a little window of time to do some ” me ” crafting, and I am thinking wedding cards,I have some new stamps and dies to try out although you know these plans could go out the window when I actually sit down to craft! Til tomorrow….
I thought I had shown all my Couture Creations C’est la Vie makes, but I missed one! I think this is my favourite too! All the papers are from that colection, and distressed and inked around the edges.I found a few birds and butterflies to fussy cut from the papers, and the gate die and flower dies are also from the C’est la Vie range by couture creations. I inked up the die cut flowers with distress inks, and the brad in the centre of the largest flower is a stampin up vintage brad. I inked a little versamark ink across the top of the gate die cut and heat embossed with gold powder to experiment with aging the gate…I will be experimenting more with this idea. Assorted greenery was added, from bits and pieces on my desk from other projects. Thats all for today, Til tomorrow…..
Along with the C’est la Vie paper collection, Couture creations brought out dies and embossing folders under the same collection.The handmade flower with the Stampin up brad in the centre on this card is made with one of these dies. I coloured it with distress inks and a sponge, and brushed it ( as well as the other flowers) with a little Nuvo glitter paste. The die cut greenery is done with a kaisercraft die,and I added ribbon, lace and a butterfly ( from the bits and pieces pack from the same range). All the papers are inked with tea dye distress ink. This morning i have set up in the dining room..I am experimenting with foamarin and my Go Press and foil machine to make my own foam flowers, which will translate into a technique lesson at paper flourish if all goes well! Til tomorrow…..
There is quite a bit happening on todays card so we will get right into it! Everything has the edges sponged with Tea Dye distress ink pad. The background layer, bracket shape, and sentiments are from Kaisercraft Madamoiselle 6″ pad, and the layer on top is from the cut apart 12 x 12 paper from the same range. On this piece I used a stampin up fancy corner punch . The foilage is a kaisercraft die, the flowers are from Prima and Green tara,and I also added flat backed pearls, a ribbon bow, fussy cut butterfly ( from the same paper range) and kindyglitz. Til tomorrow…..
We are very close to finished my prima Sweet Peppermint card collection..One more post after this one, and then we will move on to some gorgeous Graphic 45 papers ( not Christmas!)Once again, not much more is needed with this collection of papers and matching chipboard pieces, just a little bling and ribbon. The silver glitter strips on the bottom card are from Kaisercraft.Quick post today.. Til tomorrow….
We continue on with my series of cards made with Prima Sweet peppermint, and I enjoyed the chance to rummage around in my lace stash to make these ones!The gold tape I used is by kaisercraft,and I distressed edges and inked with Tea dye distress ink. My wonderful mum and sister did a lot of die cutting for me yesterday so that I could fulfill an order, so I have been enjoying the craft room today, in the peace and quiet as everyone else is off doing their own thing! Til tomorrow…..
The next 2 cards in my Kaisercraft Silent night series.The top cadr uses papers from the paper pad,and the bottom card has layers using 12 x 12 papers and both cards rely heavily on the images from the collectables pack. Everything is inked with tea dye distress ink and some bows to finish for texture.I am having a very busy week at work, but hope to get into the craft room for an hour this afternoon just for a litle relaxation! til tomorrow….
This is the very last of my October Afternoon Make it Berry collection. I have loved revisiting this collection,but what is left of it has gone into the surplus to requirements bag, as I can’t keep everything.My craft room is becoming a fire hazard! I made this card as a DL size card ( cardstock 21 x 21 cm and folded in half) to accommodate the tall reindeer image. A bit of offset layering, lace and ribbon and this one is ready to go! A new series tomorrow, Til then ….
I have so much christmas paper. Quite often it happens that I buy the collection but I have already made my Christmas cards, so I keep it for next year,but new paper comes out that I fall in love with.So this year is christmas paper culling time! Of course once I take it out ideas come…this is what happened with this paper. it is October Afternoon Make it Berry and it must be at least three years old.I have made a few cards, and the rest is in a bag ready to move on. I used a stampin up corner punch and ribbon on the top card, and the bottom card just has pretty images layered onto the base paper, and a fussy cut poinsetta decorated with kindyglitz. I taught a full class this morning – yes christmas cards, and I thoroughly enjoyed catching up with everyone! Til tomorrow….
Oops! I was all ready to move on to some christmas cards when I found one more card made with Julie Nutting Belle Vie paper (I only purchased 2 papers from this collection)This actually was the last one I made using up the last of the paper.I die cut a scalloped rectangle , and 2 butterflies,inked everything,and added the last of my bead string ( I have bought some more – Kaisercraft make it now, but the length that I have been using came off the dress of a vintage doll)ribbon,bow and sequins to decorate.Early finish from work today, so a bit of time to put my feet up! til tomorrow….
