Leave a comment

Here are the last two cards in my My Minds Eye All is Bright series… tomorrow onto something else! The card on the left makes good use of the sticker sheet that matches this paper, and I have added a little seam binding. the cardstock is Stampin Up Cherry cobbler. The card on the right is purely paper, with some snowflakes die cut with Spellbinders 2012 snowflake pendant dies. The cardstock for this one is Stampin Up baja breeze. Nathan and I had a marathon photo session today, so tonight I will be sorting out all the photos, and will have new cards to put up. Til tomorrow….

My Minds Eye All is Bright papers, and stickers.For these two cards I have teamed them with Spellbinders 2012 snowflake pendant die, and after I had die cut the snowflakes I used the waste as a stencil on the card on the right hand side. inking through it to leave the snowflake pattern on the cardstock. I really liked this look, and it has made me look at my waste offcuts in a new light – you may see more of this technique on other cards!I also used doilies on these two cards, and a bit of bakers twine and seam binding.They are quite a modern look and will be good for the younger members of my family.The cardstock I used is Stampin Up – Crumbcake, cherry cobbler and Baja Breeze. I have found some graphic 45 christmas paper from last year (aptly called Christmas Past!) in my craft room – it hasn’t been cut into so I can only think that I bought it after I had made last years cards, anyway that’s what I am playing with today, and thoroughly enjoying myself – I do love Graphic 45! Til tomorrow…

A little bit vintage, a little bit shabby – My Minds Eye All is Bright paper and matching brad and stickers. I did these 6″ square because I couldn’t bear to cut down these gorgeous papers.I added some seam binding, bakers twine and a big flower I found in my “bits” box.The cardstock used was Stampin Up crumbcake and Cherry¬† Cobbler.I spent a lovely morning at paper Flourish working on my November lessons, and this afternoon I have just been playing around with some new bits and pieces – not really making anything – just seeing what happens when I don’t have a plan – not a lot it seems! Til tomorrow….

We are back to christmas cards, these ones are a little different – lets call them shabby chic with a contemporary twist! The paper is My Minds Eye All is Bright and I have also used the matching brads,buttons and stickers.I have made a lot of cards with these papers, the ideas kept coming, and it made a nice change from green and red! I used Spellbinders 2012 snowflake pendant dies on these cards too, just the right amount of modern design in these dies.Also used – lace,seam binding, a doily, and bakers twine.Thats it for today – til tomorrow….
