Kaisercraft Sears and son male cards

Leave a comment

IMG_2866 (Medium)We will keep going with the ideas for male cards, this time using Kaisercraft Sears and son paper collection. This was one they released last year, but I haven’t found anything since that comes close to making good cards for men. This one uses a piece  of the 12 x 12 paper, scraps of other matching papers, and one of the collectables out of the matching pack. I went to town on the distressing, and then inked around everything with Tea dye ink.It’s been a great day in the craft room today, I did a couple of cards for orders, just a couple more to do, and I did a couple of cards for various challenges, as well as digging out my  graphic 45 french country papers and playing with that – that is still out on my table, so I am heading back there now to continue while the ideas are flowing! Til tomomorrow….

Countryside stamp set

2 Comments

IMG_5339 (Medium)Here is a male birthday card I made using a stamp from Stampin Up – Countryside stamp set. i also made one very similar for fathers Day using this same stamp. The cardstock is Stampin Up Early espresso and a light green which has since been retired. I embossed the light green layer with Sizzix brick wall embossing folder, and added a button for some texture. The sentiment is from Itty Bitty Banners by stampin up. Today was the retirement village ladies Christmas card marathon for the troops, so I popped over there after work for a couple of hours – just in time for a lovely lunch, and was amazed at the display covering quite a few tables of the 300 cards they had made! Well done ladies – what an effort! Til tomorrow…..

Worlds Greatest….Dad

Leave a comment

Here is my final fathers day card for this year.The base cardstock is stampin Up early espresso, and the patterned paper is Simple Stories Awesome. I die cut the cup from a cuttlebug die that I have had for ages – I am not sure if it is still available, and the letters are from a websters pages sheet. The Worlds Greatest is a new stamp from stampin Up and I stamped it in black on to some Crumbcake cardstock and distressed the edges. The two circles in the opposite corners are craftworks candi.After tea I will be found in the craft room preparing my packs for my village lesson this month – it’s all about christmas! Til tomorrow….

group of 3 fathers day cards

Leave a comment

With fathers day just around the corner now I thought I would show this group of three fathers Day cards that I made using Simple Stories Awesome papers, and my Docrafts papermania Dad stamp. The general theme is the same, just swapped around the colours, and used Stampin Up cardstock for the base card. On all the cards i stamped the Dad stamp a few times and fussy cut the letters out to mix and match .Some flags were fussy cut from the papers, and twine and brads were also used. Today I finished some christmas card ideas I had floating around, and now I am ready to head to the craft room to create some bright sunny cards in the hope that it encourages the real thing to show itself – It has been an amazingly wet ,cold and dreary winter, and I am ready to see a little sunshine!

Found this one while browsing through my files – also found some different ideas, which I will show over the next few days- The paper used here is stampin Up designer paper, for the background, and the panel that I have wrapped the bakers twine around is kaisercraft from the Mismatched range.The Boat is a stamp from Stampin Up – The open sea set,and I stamped it in Choc chip ink, and then used an oval spellbinder to cut the shape out. Quick post tonight, as it’s shopping night – no crafting tonight! Til tomorrow….

Fathers day card ideas

Leave a comment

As it’s fathers day here in Australia this Sunday, I thought I would post the rest of the Fathers day cards I have in my files this week. Most of these cards card be adapted for Male birthday cards as well. These two cards are very simple, and ideal for the gardening Dad. The papers are Websters Pages Farmers Market, and I used some Stampin Up cardstock which fits perfectly with the colours on the papers.I have had a very productive day in the craft room today, coming up with a lot of new designs for Christmas. I will get nathan busy with the camera this coming weekend, and hopefully able to post them next week. Some of them will probably make it into my classes next month.Still got some ideas buzzing around in my head, so it’s back to the craft room for me – til tomorrow…

Kaisercraft sears & sons Fathers day card 5

2 Comments

This is the last in this series for a little while because I feel in the need of something frilly, and blingy! Kaisercraft Sears & sons paper and collectables for this one, and I swiped all the edges with my tim holtz weathered wood stamp pad. A bit of string around the top for the bunting, and all stuck onto Stampin Up not quite navy cardstock.I have prepared all my market boxes, and I have a terrible feeling that after Sundays market I will be making more fathers day cards. I thought I had enough, but have already sold quite a few, so next week it’s back to mens cards!I have a village class tonight, and we are making christmas cards, so quite looking forward to that. Til tomorrow….
