_MG_1982 (Medium)Todays card is in a similar simple style to yesterdays card, With an embossed layer ( kaisercraft Frame embossing folder) and a fussy cut flower arrangement from a piece of Kaisercraft Golden Grove 12 x 12 sheet. The Thinking of You sentiment is from the 6″ pad of the same collection. Only a couple  more card to go in this collection before we move on to something new… Today I am off to the retirement village to catch up with my ladies and show them a card or two. In the meantime I have a big pot of vegetable soup simmering on the stove for tea, and for now I will head off to the half tidy craft room to get my bag ready for this afternoon.. til tomorrow….

Kaisercraft Golden grove 6…

Leave a comment

_MG_1981 (Medium)Todays kaisercraft Golden Grove card is a very very simple one. When i do Thinking of you or Sympathy cards i like to keep them quite clean and simple and for this one I used a kaisercraft frame embossing folder, fussy cut a flower from the specialty sheet of Golden Grove, and the sentiment was from the sticker sheet of the same range. I did ink around the edge of it with Tea Dye distress ink so that it didn’t blend right in to the background layer, and popped it on with foam pads for a bit of height. I am working tonight as I have a class to teach, so this morning I have been grocery shopping, but now I am going to conserve my energy and sit and sort my flowers into colour coded bags..bliss….Til tomorrow…..

_MG_9098 (Medium)As you all know , I purchased a Go Press and Foil machine and have been practising with it. The upshot is I have a lot of foiled bits and pieces waiting to be made into cards! I sat down the other day and made a few, this is the first one…Stampin Up cardstock ( watermelon wonder I believe) for the card base, and the  Go Press and foils stamps for the ornate embossed background and the sentiment. some ribbon, a hand coiled flower ( also on my desk waiting for a project) some die cut greenery and flowers from Iamroses website. i have a few hours to myself today, so i am heading into the craft room with no plan..just going to see where the inspiration takes me! Til tomorrow….

IMG_2742It appears we are back to some Kaisercraft Ooh La La makes!I drew out a tea cup template and cut it out of some of the patterned paper from the 6″ pad,and decorated with orange ric-rac,ribbon, Green Tara flowers lace and a collectable butterfly from the matching set.The sentiment was from the 6″ pad, and I mounted it on some blue cardstock. Things are back to normal here, all unpacking and washing done, caught up with Mum and Dad, inspected the garden, and today I am looking forward to sitting in the craft room after nearly 2 weeks away from it!

img_2731-mediumI love the simplicity of this one! Kaisercraft Cherry Tree Lane 6″ pad and the 12 x 12 pull apart sheet from the same collection. That’s it ( except a ribbon bow and some inking around the edges).Even the shaped bracket and the sentiment came from the 6″ pad.Quick post today, as I am off to put my feet up for a minute after a busy day at work, and then think about what to cook for tea!

IMG_0599 (Medium)IMG_0601 (Medium)The cards today are still in my Kaisercraft cottage rose series, this time a thinking of you card, and a birthday card.I kept the thinking of you card very simple, with just a punched butterfly and ribbon bow. the papers on both cards are from the 6″ pad in the collection, and the sentiments are also from the pad.For the birthday card I added some lace and ribbon,liquid pearls and another punched butterfly using my Tim holtz butterfly punch. I have done a marathon grocery shop today, I am working full time hours next week for stocktake, so I am planning to cook a lot of meals on the weekend to save some time during the week! In the meantime, if I miss a couple of posts next week you will all know why! til tomorrow…

IMG_6290 (Medium)IMG_6292 (Medium)Here are the last two cards made with Kaisercraft my cherie, for the meantime anyway!These ones are thank you cards – I have made a huge range of cards with different sentiments with this collection, so it’s a great one for all round cards.The top card has a mix of 6′ pad papers and 12 x 12 papers, and the bottom card uses just the 6″ pad.I found some flowers in the bottom of  a drawer,wound some silver thread in the back ground and finished off with a big bow and fussy cut butterfly. My roast is in the oven, my shopping list written out for this week, and now I am going to round up Nathan and his camera and take some photos of  my latest makes ready to post!I must take this opportunity to welcome all my new followers, thank you for joining us, feel free to comment and join in crafty conversations!
