img_3313-mediumMum purchased this die by Kaisercraft and cut me a couple of shapes, and I couldnt resist teaming it up with my Stampin Up Starlight dies and stamps. The cardstock is Stamp[in Up,and the little snowflake bling was from Paper flourish – I have stocked up on these snowflakes so that I can start on Christmas cards earlier next year! Til tomorrow….

Special Christmas card..

Leave a comment

img_3310-mediumA quick visit back to Christmas cards, and this one was made with someone special in mind – she doesn’t like the traditional colours, so each year I get to experiment with non Christmas colours. This is this years one – the paper is from Stampin Up, and the dies are Kaisercraft. I backed the died outline with silver cardstock, ( the actual dies were cut out of black glitter card) and added some silver cord.Til tomorrow…..

img_3308-mediumimg_3309-mediumHere are my last 2 cards made with Graphic 45 Cafe Parisian for now.The cardstock I used is from Stampin Up and blends in well with the colours on this paper. Just lots of layering and fussy cutting on both cards and a ribbon bow on each for a touch of texture. As I am still restricted with my shoulder as to what i can acheive in the craft room i thought this weekend I might have a try at making some flower sprays, so i have been gathering odd flowers, leaves , wire and various other bits and pieces and will sit down this afternoon and see what happens! Til tomorrow….

img_3306-mediumimg_3307-mediumA quick post today as I am all behind after spending an hour with Nathan chasing that little puppy all over the neighbourhood after she escaped from a hole in the fence which Nathan has now patched temporarily until Joe gets home and fixes it properly!The top card is just one of the images from a sheet of 12 x 12 paper ( graphic 45 Cafe Parisian) and the bottom card is a gatefold design – I like doing them because it’s easy to decorate the inside as well and then there is no “insert” dilemma! I found a scrap of yellow ribbon for the bow. Til tomorrow….

img_3303-mediumimg_3304-mediumMore Graphic 45 Cafe Parisian today, and aren’t those cakes yummy-looking? The colours are gorgeous on this paper, and with some fussy cutting and mounting on foam pads only a bit of kindyglitz ( and a ribbon bow) is required to finish these ones! til tomorrow….

img_3300-mediumimg_3302-mediumToday we start a new series –¬† Graphic 45 Cafe Parisian. I purchased a few sheets of the 12 x 12 of this collection and relied on fussy cutting. A lot!. The first card was just an easing in to get a feel for the papers ,so very simple. The cardstock and trim are from Stampin Up. The second card is much more interesting,with some inking of edges and layering fussy cutting and a bit of kindyglitz. This paper is so very colourful and busy it really doesn’t need much embellishing, just layering is enough. The whole time I was working on this series I wanted cake!I am easing back into the craft room – still no die cutting, but fussy cutting and punching is fine so I have rediscovered all my punches. Isn’t it funny how some things go in and out of vogue..let’s start a movement to bring back punches! They are so portable, quick ( no big machinery required) and with a bit of imagination you can get the same layered effect as dies!The cards Nathan and I photographed this morning¬† will show you all how I re-employed my punches, but we wil finish this series first. Til tomorrow….

The last two Prima Sweet peppermint..

img_3327-mediumimg_3324-mediumHere are my last two christmas cards using the Prima Sweet Peppermint range, I have lots left over so will return to it for next years cards! The top card is very vitage with lots of inking, distressing, lace, ribbon and bling, while I had a lot of fun with the bottom ( and final) card I made. The chipboard pieces just begged for googly eyes,and not much more to finish this one. Til tomorrow…..
