IMG_6562IMG_6563My two Kaisercraft Christmas wishes cards today use very little paper,just some baubles fussy cut and the background paper for the reindeer. The main focus are the dies I used ,kaisercraft christmas ones from last year which cut beautifully. I added some bling  and some kindyglitz on the reindeer and some little bows on the christmas tree. These are the dies I was looking for the other day, I am glad to report they have turned up! I put them on the shelf behind my desk for easy access, clever idea if only I had remembered that! Til tomorrow….

IMG_6559IMG_6560And so starts the Christmas card makes! I told myself this year would be all about using up previous years papers, and then Kaisercraft released Christmas Wishes! Needless to say I have bought the whole collection – 12 x 12 papers, 6″pad and packet of collectables..The top card is completely made with 12 x 12 papers and a pink bow ( don’t you love the colour of the background paper)and the second card is made up of Baubles fussy cut from the 12 x 12 paper and a greeting popped out from the paper pad. I used stampin up gold twine for the bauble string.This afternoon I am off to Paper flourish where I am going to pick up my crazy dogs stamps..and possibly one or two other things as well! til tomorrow….

Kaisercraft Barber Shoppe 3 and 4

Leave a comment

IMG_6556IMG_6557Here are the other two cards I made with Kaisercraft Barber Shoppe 6″ paper pad. I used a kaisercraft die on the top card,with a couple of the pop outs from the back of the pad, and for the bottom card I used a sizzix hats and moustaches die with a couple of wobbly eyes. Today is the start of Christmas cards!! I have spent the morning going through my boxes finding all my dies,embossing folders, and stamps with a christmas theme, but i have been distracted because I can’t find two new kaisercraft dies..I had them recently because I used them on the next group of cards I am showing you, but they have disappeared! I have decided to stop looking and they will show up when I least expect it..That’s the theory anyway! Til tomorrow….

Kaisercraft Barber Shoppe 1 and 2,

Leave a comment

IMG_6554IMG_6555Kaisercraft Barber Shoppe today, I only bought the 6″ pad and one 12 x 12 sheet for fussy cutting and had intended these cards for Fathers day cards, but decided I had enough of those, so these ones turned into birthday cards! The top card is lots of fussy cutting and the addition of a Tim Holtz spinner. The bottom card has a strip of hessian and a really old brad from the bottom of my bits drawer. Otherwise everything on this one is from the 6″ pad. A day off today, shopping done and I am off to the craft room . Til tomorrow….

Fathers day ideas..

Leave a comment

IMG_6552IMG_6553Fathers day is not too far away, so I have been making a few fathers day cards. These two are made with a Close to my Heart stamp set.. I haven’t tried this company before, and I am quite impressed with quality and price. The set includes quite a few stamps,including the bow tie and moustache on the bottom card, and the bottle of Pop on the top card.The papers I used are from Stampin Up, an older designer series called confetti celebration. Another new purchase I was trying out is the Enamel Accents on the top card. These are little bottles of liquid which drops out of the bottle beautifully and hardens like enamel. They take a while to dry, ideally left over night. I have a few colours, and very tempted to buy some more! I coloured the bottLe of Pop with copic markers,and didn’t need to colour the bottom card ..that’s how it stamped out. Til tomorrow…..

Back to the beginning….

IMG_0306 (Medium)IMG_0309 (Medium)When I first started cardmaking I made 3D cards.This is before I discovered patterned paper! anyway, now and again I go back to my cardmaking roots and rediscover 3d sheets all over again. I love the act of sitting in front of the TV fussycutting the layers..the most relaxing thing ever,and it is always fun to try an old style with new tools such as the top card with the Kaisercraft  Roses embossing folder and the bottom card with swipes of my clear wink of stella pen.I bought a few  3d sheets when I was at the craft fair for a very good price, so over the year you may see some more ideas from me as I create with them. Today i have plans to actually enjoy some quality time in the craft room – something that has been lacking in the past few weeks..til tomorrow….
