Mintay Bloomville..final two…

Leave a comment

_MG_1094 (Medium)_MG_1103 (Medium)Here are my final two Mintay Bloomville cards ( for now anyway!). The top card is a very simple card that I taught to my retirement village ladies,and involves some embossing with a kaisercraft folder, and fussy cutting of assorted Mintay bloomville papers. The happy Birthday is a die. The second card is a double z fold card, with assorted Mintay Bloomville papers to decorate. This week the craft room clean up continues, with various stops along the way to play with unearthed treasures! Til next time…..

_MG_1088 (Medium)_MG_1098 (Medium)Mintay Bloomville is a gorgeous paper collection,with glorious colours to work with. Lots of fussy cutting opportunities, but I only did a little bit for these two cards. As with every Mintay collection there is a sheet of really pretty mini card fronts and they are what I used for the focus here. As usual when I am working with any Mintay I did lots of layering..I like to get as much of the different paper on one card as I can ..lol… The only extra I added was the little oval metal on the second card and the sentiments. I have added a photo my  little Luna, who waits patiently for me to move from the crafting table and play with her.. Til next time…._MG_1077 (Medium)

IMG_2022IMG_2027Todays cards both have an owl theme, and both are made with Uniquely Creative Wise and Free products. The top card is all papers and matching Creative Cuts, with some sequins and flowers added, and the second card is paper from the collection for the background and some Creative cuts, but also some stamping! The stamp is Uniquely Creative Wise and Free stamp and I coloured it with copic markers. A flower, doily and sequins to finish this one. After weeks and months of no rain today it is finally raining! Hopefully it is spread wide enough that it helps the firefighters in our Hills area as we are expecting more hot weather by Tuesday. I am just grateful to see it, and have all the dust settled. last night we had to do something we have never had to do before ..due to the choking smoke we had to head to the hardware store and pick up face masks. We are miles from the fire zones, so can only imagine what it is like closer to them. Today I am starting the big craft clean up… anything I haven’t used in the past year is going.. I have to make some room for new things so this is my only option… lets see how far I get before I get distracted….Til next time….

IMG_2019IMG_2020 I was sitting in the craft room doing some die cutting, but the heat was too much..it’s 10:30 am here and already 32C and more than a little bit humid, so I have moved to a cooler part of the house.Todays cards continue our series of Uniquely creative paper collection, matching Creative cuts, and assorted pretty bling . The owls on the top card have little clear resin domes over their eyes, and i have inked all my edges with Frayed Burlap distress ink. There is also a chipboard feather on the top card which I painted with Nuvo platinum mousse. i am now revising my crafty plans for today, I think I will stamp out some images, dig out my copics and sit under the air con vent! Til next time….

IMG_2021IMG_2018Uniquely creative have been known for their dies and stamps, and now they are designing their own paper collections and they are amazing! This is their first one called Wise and Free. It is available as 12 x 12 papers, and there are matching Creative cuts which  I used on these two cards. I added flowers, lace, ribbon, A uniquely Creative Doily Elements die, and actual doily, chipboard word and even sequins! Loved making these cards! I hope you all had a safe and happy Christmas, i had a lovely day with family, and am looking forward to relaxing today in the craft room until it gets too hot to be in there! Til next time….

_MG_1115 (Medium)_MG_1118 (Medium)_MG_1119 (Medium)_MG_1120 (Medium)I am back after a little break when I enjoyed a lovely cruise, and taught many lovely ladies in a series of craft classes. Now I am madly chasing my tail catching up on so many things that need to be done before Christmas day, but it was all worth it! Todays cards are from a set I made with Kaisercraft ladylike collection – the 6″ pad and just one sheet of the 12 a 12 from the same colection ( the one with the roses all over it with lots of fussy cutting opportunities!) I trimmed the front of the top card down so that you can see some of the inside and decorated that as well, as you can see from the second photo. I added bead trim and lace to that one and one of my homemade resin birds. The other two cards are very simple and just rely on the papers, and a little layering. Next time we will move along to something different…til then…..

_MG_1095 (Medium)_MG_1096 (Medium)_MG_1097 (Medium)Todays cards are made with kaisercraft ladylike 6″ pad, and matching collectables. I only bought one of the 12 x 12 sheets..the one with all the roses on it.. a fussy cutters dream paper! I have added lots of lovely lace, flowers and die cut branches and leaves. I love the colours of this paper, and have just made and made with it. I will be missing for a week or two, as my cruise leaves on Monday. I have already packed my cruise class suitcase and I am looking forward to meeting lots of lovely crafters. I will be back! til next time….
