Stampin Up home for christmas continued…

Leave a comment

IMG_2947 (Medium)I thought we would continue on with this series ( stampin Up home for Christmas designer paper) for the next day or two, the papers in this range are all so different you would never guess all these cards were made with the same collection. Todays card uses some of the paper as the “wall”, and I put a piece behind the die cut ( memory box die) window. The tree , presents and holly were fussy cut from more sheets from this collection.The cat was stamped from a stamp set from stampin up called festive fireplace and coloured and cut out. I have been making more cards from this collection toady, because I haven’t even scratched the creative surface with this one, but it’s back to work tomorrow, got to love a long weekend though!Til tomorrow….

Stampin Up Home for Christmas designer paper..

Leave a comment

IMG_2887 (Medium)IMG_2890 (Medium)A short break from the kaisercraft silver bells paper, and today¬† a couple of cards I made with Stampin Up designer paper Home for Christmas, and the stampin up woodland embossing folder. The top card is the simpler version, for the bottom card i stepped it up a little.wheres the paper you say? I cut these gorgeous little deers from the paper and created a little scene by adding some punched greenery and stamping and fussy cutting the little bird.To step it up a little on the bottom card I inked some of the raised embossing, and ripped up up some white cardstock which I stuck glitter toand then raised the pieces with some 3d foam pads on the lower portion of the card. I really enjoyed making these ones, my favourites by far this year! A lazy day today, prepared some lessons for november, and this afternoon I have been experimenting with my perfect pearls powder, adding some water to it and colouring ,it makes the most lovely shimmery paint and now I am off to put my finished painted pieces onto cards.Til tomorrow…..

IMG_2859 (Medium)IMG_2860 (Medium)IMG_2861 (Medium)3 cards today, all made with Kaisercraft Silver bells paper collection and matching collectables. I put these ones up altogether in this post as the are all following a similar design using the baubles from the collectables pack and the sheet of 12 x 12 paper ( which I fussy cut out). Silver ribbon and little bows for interest, and the greetings are from the papers. day off today and I am on my way to the dentist. Nothing major, just a little filling, but not fun all the same. Its a glorious day here in adelaide, much too nice to be stuck in the dental surgery! til tomorrow…..

IMG_2874 (Medium)IMG_2875 (Medium)A little break from Christmas today. I have been practising making these tri shutter cards.I find them a little fiddley, still working on a simpler way to do them, but I like the effect so I will perservere. All paper is from the kaisercraft botanica 6″ pad, and I used a couple of the matching collectables and¬† prima flowers and ribbon.I also inked all around my edges with tea dye distress ink to define the papers.the happy birthday die cut is a spellbinders die, but i see kaisercraft have brought out a happy birthday die this month, so i will have to investigate because I love the way they cut. Til tomorrow….

IMG_2869 (Medium)Kaisercraft Silver Bells paper collection and collectables. Again I have folded the front of my card base ( stampin Up cardstock) back on itself, and decorated with some of the paper from the 6″ pad. I edged all my paper with tea dye distress ink, and added a strip of lace and a ribbon bow to finish. a beautiful sunny day here in adelaide today,and Nathan has been outside picking bags and bags of lemons. We have enough lemon juice frozen to keep us in lemon cordial for a year, and have given many bags away.Thankfully we are nearly at the end of them now, and all the other fruit trees have lots of blossom so hoping for a bumper year this year! Til tomorrow….

IMG_2857 (Medium)Kaisercraft Silver Bells once again, this time the pink tones of the paper. I used the papers from the 6″ pad for this one, and as for the previous card folded the front of the card back on itself.Inside I used an image from a 12 x 12 paper ( which had room on it for writing your greeting)and added lace and ribbon. I also edged all around all the papers with tea dye distress ink. it was good to catch up with all my ladies at a lesson today, and one day of work tomorrow then the weekend! Til tomorow….
