A Christmas village..

Leave a comment

_MG_9839 (Medium) We are going to take a small pause in the Kaisercraft letters to Santa series today so that I can show you a card I made with Stampin Up Hometown Greetings Die set and a piece of patterned paper from their Christmas Around the the World designer series paper pack. I die cut the houses from  gold and white glitter cardstock, and baqcked the houses with some shiny pieces of an acetate type piece.. I have no idea what it was, Mum handed it to me over the table, unsure of where she had got it, but it worked a treat as windows. Next time I do these, I will use some plain acetate as I have no more of the scrap mum gave me, and I will try colouring the clear acetate with Copic markers to see if I can get the same light shining through technique. The trees and star are Kaisercraft wooden pieces, foiled with my Go Press and Foil machine. Our clocks jumped forward an hour for daylight saving, and I have spent all morning chasing my tail, wondering where the day is going…Time is truly flying! Til tomorrow…..

Final Oh so succulent for now..

Leave a comment

IMG_0037 (Medium)For this fianl card in the Stampin Up Oh so Succelent series I used the dies, stamps and papers from the collection.I die cut the flowers from stampin up cardstock, and used some brads that I had which matched the colours perfectly. I smudged some calypso coral ink ( stampin up) on a sponge behind the flowers and tied around the whole panel with a piece of dainty lace. I can’t wait to get back to this collection to try some other colour combinations! Til tomorrow…..

Oh so succulent stamp set..

Leave a comment

IMG_0035 (Medium)For this card I used the Stampin Up Oh so succulent stamp set, stampin onto  watercolour card and colouring with inks. Although I have the matching die set i found it quicker and easier to fussy cut the images myself. On another piece of white card I did a watercolour wash in blue, stuck down half a doily, die cut a circle and trimmed it to a pot shape, and then arranged my plants! I trimmed some of the front of the card off, and added a strip of patterned paper on the back part of the card. I truly enjoyed making this card even if I did spend a little bit of time on it! I have been busy this week making orders, 12 at last count, but everything is caught up with now and I am hoping to cut into my new papers ( 2 lots now.. Kaisercraft High tea and sage and grace) in the coming days. til tomorrow….

IMG_0034 (Medium)Over the next couple of posts I will show you what I have been making with my Stampin Up Oh so Succulent stamps, dies and designer papers. This one today uses all Stampin Up supplies, including the sequins and silver thread. The range of dies in this set are lovely,lots of opportunities for lovely built up flowers. Today I am taking a break from preparing for my craft fair and meeting up with some great ladies I converse with in our craft group. It will be a lovely afternoon of crafting and chatting! Til tomorrow…..

Special Christmas card..

Leave a comment

img_3310-mediumA quick visit back to Christmas cards, and this one was made with someone special in mind – she doesn’t like the traditional colours, so each year I get to experiment with non Christmas colours. This is this years one – the paper is from Stampin Up, and the dies are Kaisercraft. I backed the died outline with silver cardstock, ( the actual dies were cut out of black glitter card) and added some silver cord.Til tomorrow…..

Back to Christmas!

img_3525-mediumThis is one of my favourite Christmas cards from this years’ makes. All supplies are from Stampin Up except for the bling,and the paper is a retired collection ( from stampin up) but I liked it so much last year I bought more for this years makes.This card and the next 2 I will show over the next couple of days were made for a village class I did a couple of weeks ago. I am back from my short break away to visit my son and his partner in Sydney, We had a lovely time, and the weather was good,my shoulder is still no good so I am now back off to the Dr to see what else he can do for me,I guess the craft room is still a no-go zone. Til tomorrow….

More Happy Reindeers..

Leave a comment

img_9364-mediumDon’t these reindeers make you smile?I used an embossing folder for the background ( stampin Up) and ripped up white cardstock  to make the foreground. I added aline of glue across the top of each layer and stuck on loose glitter.Fussy cut reindeers from stampin up home for christmas designer paper, and added die cut leaves and sentiment with  kaisercraft dies. A sprinkle of red kaisercraft rhinestones and these which were a joy to make were done! Til tomorrow….
