Kaisercraft velvet crush,stamping and copics

Leave a comment

IMG_0850 (Medium)IMG_0852 (Medium)I recently bought some copic colour markers and headed off to a beginners class to learn how to use them(!)and since then have been practising my colouring. Here are my first few attempts. The stamps are from my collection, the first is a magnolia stamp, and the last is a deep red stamp ( from a set of four…absolutely excellent stamp set) and I can’t remember the brand of the cupcake stamp.Anyway, I coloured, and then teamed the images with some bits and pieces I had left over from my Kaisercraft Velvet Crush collection and added assorted flowers and punched leaves to finish.Today I visited my hairdresser, who sells my cards in her salon, only to find she had sold every one of the wedding cards I had left with her. So tonight I will be in the craft room creating all things wedding…Til tomorrow…..

IMG_3078 (Medium)IMG_3079 (Medium)Here are the rest of my creations using kaisercraft Mix and Match collection. I bought the 12 x 12 pack for this collection and it contained a few papers that weren’t available in the loose form, which are the papers I have used on these two cards. the top card was kept very simple as it is for my nephews birthday, ( I fussy cut the banners from a piece of the paper) and the bottom card uses another of the fussy cut butterflies and just a little flower .The sentiments on both cards are by stampin up.Today is a day off for me and as I don’t have a class today the morning has been spent grocery shopping.It’s a bit wet outside here today, so a lovely day to spend an hour or two in the craft room! til tomorrow….

IMG_3075 (Medium)IMG_3077 (Medium)A few cards today made with Kaisercraft Mix and Match. These papers have a base colour of Craft , with white,red and black.For the top two I die cut some hearts out of hessian and added a button,and for the bottom card I let the papers do all the talking,fussy cutting butterflies and chevrons .There is a sheet in this collection which is covered in gorgeous butterflies. it’s easy to colour them, but I left the ones on this cardĀ  plain.All stamps and cardstock are from stampin Up. Til tomorrow…

Kaisercraft Antique Bazaar 4 and 5


IMG_3072 (Medium)IMG_3073 (Medium)Here are the last 2 cards I have made for now with Kaisercraft Antique Bazaar 6″ pad and matching collectables.I think these 2 cards would make great graduation cards, and if I hadn’t already made the graduation cards I need this year these two would have put in the box I keep for upcoming family events. Stampin Up cardstock for both bases, and some sequins sprinkled on the bottom card.well, the weekend has flown by far too quickly, and not a lot of cards made for the fair boxes, but some lessons sorted and all orders up to date, so not too bad! til tomorrow….

IMG_3070 (Medium)Another card using Kiasercraft Antique Bazaar 6″pad and collectables. Yesterday it was all about the music and today the theme is movies!Love the collectables in this range! Tonight all my blokes are out, so it is off to the craft room for me – A couple of orders, a class or two to organise, and then if it’s not too late some experimenting with some new folds..bliss…Til tomorrow….

Kaisercraft Antique bazaar 1 and 2

IMG_3068 (Medium)IMG_3069 (Medium)Back to cards today, and these two are made with Kaisercraft Antique Bazaar which is a new release from Kaisercraft. I nearly didn’t buy this one as it was very similar to an older collection which I still have, but I loved the record collectables, so just bought the collectables pack and the 6″ pad.I have mixed it up a bit with the older collection which is Velvet Ensemble.If you have any of this older collection hiding in your craft space dig it out because these two collections compliment each other.A day off for me today, so I have done a very large grocery shop, and shouldn’t have to go back for at least a couple weeks, and the rest of the day will be spent relaxing in the craft room. I still have a couple of family birthday cards to make – female ones this time, so easy, and an order to fulfill, then it will be time to start thinking about lessons again! til tomorrow…..

Graphic 45 steampunk Debutante..not a card..


IMG_3116 (Medium)Not a card today! Instead I thought I would show you what I made over the Easter break. I have had the printers tray for about a year now, and always knew what I wanted to do with it, and finally sat down and just did it! So co-incidental that Marcelle commented on my last post about time flying because that is the theme for this one!I used Graphic 45 Steampunk Debutante paper collection, and added lots of recycled bits and pieces such as buttons, hessian, watch parts, beaded jewellery, and Prima letter tiles and canvas bird, twiddleybitz leaf flourishes,tim holtz glass bottlesĀ  and lots of other bits as well.I aged the tray a bit by lightly brushing with gold viva paint.Today is an exciting day in my blog history as well, as sometime in the next few hours someone is going to be my 200,000th visitor.Amazing! Thank you all for sticking with me – I know a lot of you have been with me from the beginning( way back in 2010)and we’ve come a long way since then! Til tomorrow…..
