_MG_4607 (Medium) Hello! I am sorry I am not posting as often as usual, but I have been busy in the shop,we opened our Paper Flourish On Line store last week, and things have been hectic!I am finding minutes here and there to create, but not as much as I would like. In the meantime, todays card is made with Stampin Up Party pandas stamp set, which I stamped and fussy cut, and the background is inked with Distress oxide ink pads and a circle stencil. The rectangle cross stitched die is a Seven Paper Dolls Die. Til tomorrow…..

_MG_4605 (Medium)These Pandas are so cute! they are from a stamp set by Stampin Up (party pandas),and I stamped them and fussy cut them out,doing a little colouring with copic pens. I prepared a background piece by using Distress oxide ink pads, and die cut the rectangle with a Seven Paper Dolls cross stitch die. Such a simple card to make and a favourite of mine…Til tomorrow….

Mums Birthday card..

Leave a comment

_MG_4594 (Medium)It is my mums birthday, and this is the card I have made for her, although to be completely open and honest, once this photo was taken I added a couple more flowers ( in white) in the left hand bottom corner!It is all done with my Go Press and Foil machine,including the foiled embossed background. The butterfly is foiled on acetate, and I foiled the sentiment as well. a bit of layering and lace, ribbon and flowers and this one is ready for giving to Mum today. Yesterday was spent  ( after a two hour trip to Bunnings to purchase various garden items for Nathan and house paint for me) in the craft room preparing all of June lessons. Glad they are organised because I really have to concentrate on the craft fair in June now. I am looking forward to an enjoyable afternoon at Paper Flourish ( where our on line shop goes live on Tuesday!) with my craft and chat group. til tomorrow…..

Embossing ( and just a die cut)

Leave a comment

_MG_4592 (Medium)This is a card that I taught at paper Flourish a couple of months ago. We did a set of three cards all relying on embossing and die cutting with pastel colours. The die I have used is a Seven paper Dolls die which will be available to purchase  from our webstore when it has it’s grand opening on the 1st of May. It has been a busy and exciting time getting the web store up and running and we see the finish line in our sights! The sentiment die is from kaisercraft as are the embossing folders I used. I stuck a row of flowers across the join I had created by combining two different embossed pieces of cardstock. I have always loved pastel colours and the three cards we created in class are favourites of mine. I have rediscovered embossing folders recently, they are an undervalued piece of cardmaking equipment in my opinion!  I have spent a little time today in the craft room creating some June lessons, but really it has been a lazy and relaxing day off. Til tomorrow…..

Stampin Up Birthday Blooms..

Leave a comment

_MG_4591 (Medium)Once again for some reason my computer has decided these cards look better on their sides! So please just imagine they are standing in a landscape format!! I have used the same stamp ( from Stampin Up Birthday Blooms) and I have stamped on watercolour paper and coloured with Zig markers as I was experimenting with these wonderful new markers. With one colour you can get a graduation of colour by colouring directly where you want the colour darkest, and then I just pulled the colour around with an aqua brush ( a normal paintbrush and cup of water would also do the job). I scattered some drops of clear Nuvo around to look like water drops, and the dies are a nesting stitch die by seven paper dolls. Matching ribbon trim, a bit of patterned paper on the top card, and a bling flat backed pearl and these were super easy and what I would call clean and simple! Til tomorrow….._MG_4587 (Medium)

Kaisercraft miss Betty double zig zag..

Leave a comment

_MG_9441 (Medium)_MG_9442 (Medium)The Kaisercraft Miss Betty collection worked perfectly as a double zigzag card,and here are two that I made with this collection. I used a mix of 12 x 12 papers, some papers from the 6″ pad and the matching collectables. On the top card i made the most of my lace, ribbon and flowers whereas on the lower card I only added a little ribbon and a few sequins. I had a great day yesterday playing with my new Go Press and Foil cut, foil and emboss dies, here is a selection of completed cards! IMG_0606

_MG_9440 (Medium)The second card made with kaisercraft Miss Betty collection! Here I have used some of the 12 x 12 sheets, and the matching collectables. The die cut fence is a couture creations die and I inked around all my distressed edges with tea dye ink and added a ribbon bow and little flower. This week has been hugely busy at work putting out all the new pre orders and I must admit I have a few new things to play and experiment with including the new Go Press and foil  foil,emboss and cut dies ( which do all that in one step!). They are on my dining table ready to go in about 5 minutes!! til tomorrow….
