Final mens card..

Leave a comment

_MG_4642 (Medium)The final male card in this group is a die cut one. I used Paper Rose Tool set die and Pegboard die and Kaisercraft Occasions die for the sentiment. The patterned paper is a scrap of woodgrain paper. I die cut the tools and sentiment from some silver cardstock, and distressed and inked the edges of the woodgrain paper. The next series will be Graphic 45 Portrait of a lady, because I know some of you are waiting to see what I have done with that collection!Til tomorrow….

Art Impressions stamp..a male card..

Leave a comment

_MG_4641 (Medium)Due to a lack of male themed papers I have had to resort to stamps today! This is an Art Impressions stamp and I coloured it with Copics, and fussy cut around the image. I broke a golden rule and coloured first, then had to hunt around for papers to match, luckily I had some stampin up papers which did the job. The sentiment is die cut from a Kaisercraft die,and I popped the image on the card with 3d foam pads.Til tomorrow when we will finish this very short male themed series!

Vertical Greetings

Leave a comment

IMG_0038 (Medium)Today’s card was a quick and easy card of layering and stamping. I used a stamp set from Stampin Up called Vertical garden, and stamped the greeting and topiary tree straight onto the cardstock. I stamped the pot again on a scrap of paper, fussy cut and popped it over the top of the green stamped pot with 3d foam squares. I am thinking of doing a similar design for one of my cruise cards…I spent a lovely afternoon yesterday in the craft room, but today we are going out and about for a drive out of the city to see the autumn colours..til tomorrow….

simple male card idea

2 Comments

IMG_2740 (Medium)Todays card is one I taught yesterday in my class at Paper Flourish.It is a very simple one that doesn’t require a lot of product. I used two different sized fish tail dies ( kaisercraft) to make the shirt, and ran the larger piece through a Couture Creations pinstripe embossing folder.The bow tie was made with a template, but I do have a Stampin up punch that would have done the trick and you can also get dies ( I saw a paper rose one) that would also work.I just had to add three pearls to finish this quick and easy design.Quick post today as I can smell my cake baking in the oven – might be time to take it out! til tomorrow….

Fathers day ideas..

Leave a comment

IMG_6552IMG_6553Fathers day is not too far away, so I have been making a few fathers day cards. These two are made with a Close to my Heart stamp set.. I haven’t tried this company before, and I am quite impressed with quality and price. The set includes quite a few stamps,including the bow tie and moustache on the bottom card, and the bottle of Pop on the top card.The papers I used are from Stampin Up, an older designer series called confetti celebration. Another new purchase I was trying out is the Enamel Accents on the top card. These are little bottles of liquid which drops out of the bottle beautifully and hardens like enamel. They take a while to dry, ideally left over night. I have a few colours, and very tempted to buy some more! I coloured the bottLe of Pop with copic markers,and didn’t need to colour the bottom card ..that’s how it stamped out. Til tomorrow…..

It is my Great nephews second birthday soon and he is crazy for Dinosaurs. When I was at the craft fair I found a couple of sheets of patterned paper by Hobby Fun Co ltd which fit the bill nicely.I bought 2 sheets and managed to make 10 cards from them, some of which are shown here. No extra embellishments, just a bit of layering. Today i have my Mature Ladies class over at Paper Flourish and I am so looking forward to catching up with my ladies, so i must be off and get prepared! Til tomorrow….

When I was looking for something else altogether in the craft room, I came across some paper I hadn’t created with, so I stopped what I was doing and came up with 3 very quick cards that would be suitable for the men in our lives or even ladies that love nature! The paper collection is Kaisercraft limelight and I have used the matching collectables, papers from the 6″ pad and there my even be some bits of 12 x 12 paper here too.the top card was perfect to use one of my little clock charms on. Who knows what else is hiding in that craft room? Tomorrow I am back to work, so this afternoon is all about finishing up some projects on my craft table, and thinking about some ideas for upcoming classes. Til tomorrow….
