Very quick post tonight as I haven’t started tea yet! We are sticking with the Prima Divine a4 paper pad , and I have used one of the chipboard pieces with this card. I matted a couple of layers of the paper, and distressed all the edges with my martha Stewart distressing tool. Ink used is Tea dye distress ink. I added a trio of flowers at the bottom of the card, picking out the colours in the dress.The sentiment is a stampin up stamp.Til tomorrow….

Today we start my Prrima Divine series – This paper is right up there with all time favourites, it has a distinct vintage flavour and lends itself well to shabby chic as well – my favourite styles! It distresses well and so I did a lot of that…..I bought the a4 pad in this collection, because its tailored made for cardmakers, the size means each sheet can cover 4 cards comfortably with no waste, and I also purchased a sheet of chipboard pieces – the tea cup on this card is one of them. I inked aroung all my edges, added a ribbon bow and flowers and stamped a sentiment with a stampin up stamp.

Graphic 45 a place in Time march Cut outs paper, and some pretty Bazil for matting. The card stock is Stampin Up Garden Green, and just a little lace down the side. A liberal squirt of Kindyglitz and this one was a very quick make indeed!Very hot day here in South Australia, so definitely no card making tonight – just trying to stay cool in front of the T.V. for me!

Nathan got out his camera today and we took some photos so I have a lot of very recent cards to show you all over the next couple of weeks. The first group are all made using Kaisercraft Secret Admirer collection. I haven’t yet been able to purchase my 6″ pad as there has been a little hold up with availability, so I have been using the 12 x 12 papers and on this first card I also added some ribbon,pearls ,lace and kindyglitz. The butterflies are die cut with Cheery Lyn Exotic Butterflies,and the sentiment is Stampin Up perfectly penned. I am off to the craft room for a couple of hours to unwind after a very busy and stressful week! Til tomorrow….

We appear to be all over the place with my postings but I have a few cards that have missed being posted, and I am trying to tidy up my folders. so, this one is a card made from Anna griffin paper and matching embellishments( Number 5 apparently)I used a spellbinders dress form die as well, and decorated it ( the most fun) with ribbon, lace, a flower and bling.The cardstock is Stampin Up Pink Pirouette.I have a true mess on my craft table today – I am playimg with a new kaisercraft collection, but will have to pack it up for now to plan out a lesson for my ladies at the retirement village this Friday – never have I left a lesson plan this late, but I have been busy with a few commissions which are now completed.

Here is my first ( and only at the moment as I have been distracted with xmas cards) Graphic 45 Bird Song card. Lovely paper and I am looking forward to doing more with it, in the meantime, I did a lot of fussy cutting for this one, and mounted the images on to stampin Up cardstock – Earl Espresso and Baja Breeze. I added some seam binding and gold liquid pearls for texture.Today is a beautiful day outside, and it’s a shame to waste it, so perhaps no creating but sitting in the garden with a good book! Til tomorrow….

I feel in the mood for something bold and bright this afternoon, and this card fits the bill nicely! The paper, chipboard and Journalling notecard are all from the Prima Zephyr collection,and the sentiment and Pool Party seam binding are from stampin Up.The butterfly was die cut using Memory Box Moonlight and Kaliedascope butterfly dies, and I used a little bakers twine as well. I kept the canvas keys til last because these are something new I found and I love them. They are Prima resist canvas ( the pack these came from was the clocks, gears and keys pack). Its a pack chock full of die cut shapes, and when you colour them – I used a tim holtz ranger ink pad and a blending tool, there is a pattern that resists the ink. I bought the pack with the birds in it too, which I haven’t used yet, but may get the opportunity now that my week – end has started – Yay!So looking forward to getting into the craft room and playing wiht all my new paper purchases! Til tomorrow….

When I made this card it reminded me of a painting hanging on a wall, and The graphic 45 A ladies Diary chipboard was perfect for this.The card is self explanatory, but the white strip is interesting. I cut it to size, then put it in my trimmer, but instead of cutting, I ran my bone folder down the cutting lane ( did this twice – just moved the cardstock over a little) and it gave these wonderful embossed lines which is exactly the look I wanted for my picture rail! Tonight I will be in the craft room putting the finished touches to my order, and then I will be all organised to start playing with my new stampin up stuff when I get it tomorrow… Til tomorrow…
