Leave a comment

img_0705-mediumimg_0706-medium Two cards today because I have been missing on the blog this week, had a few Dr’s appointments to sort out my knee which has been playing up. Turns out it’s arthritis, so I will just have to get used to it,I am just so relieved it isn’t a cartlidge problem again!Todays cards are made using Kaisercraft Peek a boo in the girls colours. I also used the Kaisecraft dies for the pram and the word baby.I usedĀ  a matching collectable to pop into the pram on the top card, and for the bottom card I punched a circle and added googly eyes to represent a baby peeking out of the pram ( I like this one – the fun nature of it). Went to town with the lace , ribbon and buttons! Day off today so i am off to the craft room to sit and relax for a couple of hours at least, til tomorrow…..

img_0704-mediumStill with kaisercraft Peek-a-boo, but the pink version. Girl baby card today,and here I have used the 6″ pad ( which is a mix of pink and blue papers) for the background layer, and some matching collectables. The “Baby” was die cut with Kaisecraft die and inked around with tea dye ink to make it stand out a little from the pinkness of the papers. ribbon and delicate lace to finish! Housework is done, roast is in the oven so now it’s time to craft! til tomorrow….

Kaisercraft Peek-a boo 3..

Leave a comment

img_0703-mediumFor my last Baby boy Kaisercraft Peek- a- boo card I have made a gatefold card, decorated with 12 x 12 papers and matching collectables.I added some vintage ric rac and a button for a little texture, and this was a very simple card to put together. Next time we will start on the pink cards! I haven’t had much time in the craft room lately what with the shoulder injury and what little cardmaking I have managed to do has been setting up the Cruise cards ( nearly done and just as well as its just a matter of weeks now!) and lesson set ups. Tomorrow I finish this months village lesson and hopefully have an hour or to to experiment with new things! Til tomorrow….

Kaisercraft Peek a Boo.

img_0700-mediumimg_0701-mediumThe Kaisercraft Peek a Boo paper collection comes in two parts, you can purchase pink or blue, great idea, but I had to have both! I have made a few cards from both colourways and we will start with the blue. For the top card I used 2 pieces from the 6 ” pad and punched a border on one of the pieces.The tag is from the pack of collectables, and I used Kaisercraft die to die cut the pram. The chipboard piece is also from a kaisercraft pack.Butons ,ric rac and a ribbon bow to finish that one. The second card also has two pieces of patterned paper to cover the base card ( from the 12 x 12 papers) and I fussy cut the pram from another piece of the 12 x 12 paper. I fussy cut the word baby from a 12 x 12 paper and die cut Boy using a kaisercraft die. Again a chipboard piece, ribbon bow and buttons to finish. I am off to teach a class this morning, looking forward to seeing my ladies as I had to miss my december class due to the whole shoulder injury thing which is improving now but still not 100% yet! Til tomorrow….

PS I LOve You number 4

This is the final card ( for now, until I find where I have put the papers!) of Kaisercraft PS I Love You , I have used the 6″ paper pad and matching collectables on this one. I added a couple of Green Tara flowers and inked around the large collectable with some Tea Dye ink for definition. A ribbon bow to finish. I had a lovely day at the Paper Flourish Teachers car park sale, and soldĀ  a lot of bits and pieces that were taking up valuable real estate in my craft wardrobe. I still have a lot of clearing out to do , but I at least I have started! And of course it means more room for new goodies! Til tomorrow….img_0699-medium

Age birthday card..

2 Comments

img_0698-mediumTodays card is the last for now of my age birthday series, and like the previous cards uses Kaisercraft PS I Love you paper for the bottom layer. The die is Paper Rose Ornate Circle,one butterfly is from the collectables pack of the same paper collection, and I made a small spray of flowers with a ribbon bow to finish. These are actually quite quick and easy cards if you take the time to prepare a few sprays while sitting watching TV in the evening, This one in particular was just a case of winding the flower stems around each other, placing them at different heights before winding. Once all joined together you can bend the wires to spread them out or shape them around the circle as I have done here. A leaf, stamens and some silver thread is all added after the spray is stuck on the card front. Another scorcher here today,no good for crafting as the glue drys before I am ready to stick anything to it! Til tomorrow….
