Kaisercraft golden Grove 4 and 5

Leave a comment

_MG_1974 (Medium)_MG_1980 (Medium)Two cards today because I have been missing for a few days, very busy at work putting out lots of new stock, and buying quite a bit of it! We are back to Kaisercraft golden Grove which was one of the ranges they released last month, and is full of lovely rich autumn colours. IThe top card is a card I made for my uncles Birthday, he is a gardener and I thought he would enjoy the imagery and colours reflected in his garden. It’s all 12 x 12 sheets from the range as well as the matching collectables. The lower card also uses pieces fromĀ  a 12 x 12 sheet, with a flower and butterflies fussy cut from one of the sheets as well. If you look closely you can see some little rain drops ( or dew drops) which I made using some clear Nuvo. I have been experimenting with Nuvo, it comes in a huge range of colours and is very much like Liquid pearls, but better value, larger colour range and holds the perfect dome shape better…can you tell I am a fan? It comes in metallic ,glitter ( much better than stickles), pearl and clear . I have also been trying to clean up the craft room, but that is not going so well, too many distractions! Til tomorrow….

Kaisercraft Lilac Whisper number 2….

Leave a comment

_MG_1965 (Medium)I used the same kaisercraft ornate die set on this card, with kaisercraft lilac whisper 12 x 12 papers and collectables. The resin frame is one I bought a few of and can’t get any more…shame, they are fantastic, and weigh very little so perfect for cards. Luckily I still have some left so you will see them pop up now and again on my cards. For the rest of the card just some flowers and a ribbon bow. Today I have spent some time experimenting with some new products, I like to keep abreast of the products we sell at the shop so that I can recommend with confidence so today I was playing with Nuvo embossing powder, and I was impressed, once heat embossed it looks like you have triple embossed it is so thick even though it is only one application. I tried it with a script stamp as well to see if you would lose the definition as it sems to be so thick but you can still see the script, so thats good. I feel this product warrants more testing with different colours! I also had some new dies, and some Prima Colour Bloom spray mists I was playing with, and of course in between doing some more Go Press and Foiling on some Christmas chipboard pieces, so lots of bits and pieces on my desk to turn into cards. Great fun! Til tomorrow….

Kaisercraft Lilac Whisper


_MG_1964 (Medium)Last month kaisercraft released a range called Lilac Whisper,the colours in this range are beautiful and subtle, so i had a very quick play with it when it came home, sadly I haven’t got back to it yet so only have a couple of cards to show so far. Todays one uses a sheet of the 6″ pad as the background layer,and I have used a sentiment from a terrific piece of the 12 x 12 from the same range which has so many sentiments on it. A lot of collectables grouped together, and a Kaisercraft ornate die cut from some more of the 6″ pad.I am home for the day now after working this morning, and it is so cold here, although I love the thought of doing some crafting I have a feeling the afternoon will be spent with a good book in front of the heater! Til tomorrow…

_MG_9103 (Medium)This is the final card I made the other day with my Go Press and Foil machine.I spent a lovely couple of hours the other night doing some more foiling so there will be more to come. I foiled the flourish and fussy cut around it, then glued it to white cardstock and embossed the whole sheet with a stampin up embossing folder. The butterfly is diecut in glitter card with a kaisercraft die. The chipboard leaf is foiled. Til tomorrow….

The last Kaisercraft High Tea card ( for now…)

Leave a comment

_MG_7033 (Medium)Sadly today is our last day of Kaisercraft high Tea, but I will return to it one day!This last card is interesting because it is a Double z fold card. I saw this fold in a magazine and I had to try it immediately, I love it, and I am teaching my ladies how to do it at the end of the month. If I ever get some free time I will also do a you tube clip of it, but will let you all know when that has happened. The papers I used to decorate it are from the 6″ pad, and the collectable pack and sticker sheet. Such a quick post today, but i am just home from a day at work and tea is ready..I can smell it! Til tomorrow…..

Kaisercraft High Tea continued..

_MG_7030 (Medium)Continuing on with Kaisercraft high Tea,this one is very simple with one of my resin frames,backed with a tag cut to shape behind it, on a piece of paper from the 6″ pad, and a sticker from the sticker sheet across the bottom. The sentiment is from the 6″ pad,and there is a scrap of lace and a bow to finish. I had fun decorating the inside of the frame with a punched butterfly and some pearls. Yesterday I purchased my Go press and Foil by couture creations, and although I have removed it from its box I haven’t yet had time to play with it properly, so now I am excitedly waiting for the weekend so that I can foil everything in sight! Til tomorrow…..

_MG_7028 (Medium)


Kaisercraft high Tea..this time the 6″ pad, and another of those gorgeous resin frames which I backed with a scrap of patterned paper and added a punched butterfly to. Lots of ribbon and lace, and some liquid pearls for texture. The sentiment was in the 6″ pad. Yesterday was a productive day in the craft room, I finished off a couple of projects,came up with a couple of designs for the cruise cards, and did a couple of cards for a challenge which I needed for todays crafty meeting with friends. The challenge was Autumn so I am interested to see what everyone else has come up with. Til tomorrow….
