This is a different card for fathers day, but I love this stamp set from Oxford Impressions. I stamped it in stampin up chocolate chip, and mounted it on some patterned paper, the brand escapes me at the moment, and the cardstock is Stampin Up baja breeze. I have a couple of projects tonight, one is to finish off the 7 cards I made last night using my new supplies, and I am so pleased with how they came out I’m hoping Nathan can photo them tomorrow so that I can post them! The other project I am going to start tonight is a colour chart. I found an unused pinboard hanging around, and I am going to cut squares out of all my scraps of cardstock and pin them to the board and hang it in front of my craft table. I will then have at a glance all my available colours of cardstock, and I will even be able to move them around to see if the colours match, and maybe even come up with some outstading combinations! This could be a project that takes a little while, but as soon as I have completed it, I will post a photo! Til tomorrow…..

The other day when I bought lots of good stuff at paper flourish I picked up a 6″ paper pad by Kaisercraft called Timless. There are a lot of great background papers in it, and this is one of them. The card images were also in the pad, and I found a dice brad in the bottom of one of my drawers. The label is a stampin up die . Still no crafting happening here yet but after tea I intend to start my personal xmas cards so that they are not left to the last minute! Lets see how that goes…. Til tomorrow….

I missed doing last nights blog, as it was shopping night, and what a wild wet and windy night it was! After braving the elements all I wanted to do was sit down with a cup of tea by the heater and thaw out! Tonight I am back to Kaisercrafts new collection – Hunter and Gatherer. All I added was a button and twine. The cardstock is stampin Up Early Espresso. The bird images are gorgeous on this paper. Til tomorrow….

Todays Fathers day card was made using my cuttlebug machine. I used the largest of my spellbinders labels eight dies to shape the card, and the next smallest to emboss with craft concepts universal folder – In Stitches. The trophy is a cuttlebug die – You’re a winner, and the No. 1 is cuttlebug typewriter letters dies.The dad is a different story…. Nathan bought me some stuff called laser transfer foil from a company called Crafty Computer Paper. It comes in all different colours, and comes per metre.Its not cheap, but you do get a lot to play with. You print whatever you like through your computer ( in my case – dad) and then cover the print with the special paper, and run it through the laminater. One thing we found – it does like a very hot laminater.The effect is glittery- shiny! The green I have will be great on christmas cards.I have a Village lesson tonight so I’m off to get organised! Til tomorrow…..
