Kaisercraft Golden grove 6…

_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…..

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! Til tomorrow….

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! Til tomorrow….

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_6289 (Medium)A change of pace today with a couple of thinking of you cards made with kaisercraft ma Cherie paper collection. I fussy cut the flower sprays from a sheet of 12 x 12 paper, and the lovely embossed paper on the background id from the 6 ” pad, as is the greeting and butterfly.very similar cards – subtle differences – the background papers are two different papers, and the cardstock used are two different shades of grey. This morning I was digging through my graphic 45 paper looking for special papers to use for a village lesson,and I need a lot of the same paper as my ladies want to learn how to make a bendy card and graphic 45 is the only paper I have in large quantities – mainly because once home with it I find it very difficult to cut into – I love it that much!Going through it all Ideas were springing from everywhere – I will never have enough time to make everything I want to, but at least I have realised the time has come to use this paper!So any spare time this weekend will be spent with Graphic 45!Til tomorrow….
