Tie Dyed t-shirt card

Leave a comment

IMG_7095 (Medium)This is the first card I made with my new stampin up stamp set..Custom Tee, so I was really just getting the feel of the stamps.The background paper was just a scrap on my table as were the felt flowers and button. I stamped the t-shirt on plain white card, cut it out and used my copic markers to do the tie-dye design ( will practise that a bit more!) The Vintage sentiment is in the same stamp set, and the happy birthday is from another stampin up set. All of a sudden I have a few projects on the go.. thinking about a whole new range of cards to do for our cruise next year, I am making a box for a challenge,still need some wedding cards,new kaisercraft paper to play with and some village lesson cards to prepare. My sister gave me some new stampin up stamp sets yesterday and so I am itching to try them out too….ahhh life’s good! til tomorrow….

img_3523-mediumimg_3524-mediumHere are the other two cards I made with Graphic 45 St. Nicholas paper collection. I had to pack that paper away to work on some orders, and I haven’t got back to it yet.On the top card I did something a little different – I used border stickers to frame the main image, while the bottom card has a little bit of fussy cutting. I think we will take a bit of a break from all things christmas next time and have a look at a few other cards I have been making!Til tomorrow…..

Kaisercraft Barber Shoppe 3 and 4

Leave a comment

IMG_6556IMG_6557Here are the other two cards I made with Kaisercraft Barber Shoppe 6″ paper pad. I used a kaisercraft die on the top card,with a couple of the pop outs from the back of the pad, and for the bottom card I used a sizzix hats and moustaches die with a couple of wobbly eyes. Today is the start of Christmas cards!! I have spent the morning going through my boxes finding all my dies,embossing folders, and stamps with a christmas theme, but i have been distracted because I can’t find two new kaisercraft dies..I had them recently because I used them on the next group of cards I am showing you, but they have disappeared! I have decided to stop looking and they will show up when I least expect it..That’s the theory anyway! Til tomorrow….

Kaisercraft Mademoiselle..

Leave a comment

IMG_0319 (Medium)The Kaisercraft Mademoiselle paper collection is gorgeous, so much so that I have used it for my August class at Paper Flourish!For this card I have used the 6″ paper pad,and a couple of the collectables.The trim is by Prima, and the butterfly is fussy cut from another of the papers in the pad.The secret to this vintage style paper is to ink around all your edges…I have used Tea Dye distress ink.We will continue this collection after Nathan has photoed the cards I have since made up, meanwhile tomorrow we will have a look at some stamped cards I recently worked on. Til tomorrow…..

Magnolia Lane collection

2 Comments

IMG_5629 (Medium)I found some lovely vintage paper that I had to have, it’s called Magnolia lane and the paper company is Ultimate Crafts.I have beenĀ  a bit time poor for crafting lately but I did find a spare 1/2 hour to cut into this gorgeous paper. I also bought the matching collectables, and really the papers don’t need much else. Here is the first one , I made it in a gatefold style and decorated the inside as well as the outside.Inked all my edges with tea dye distress ink and the cardstock is from Stampin Up.My Body is protesting at being back at work, my muscles are a wee bit sore, so I am off to fill the hot water bottle and treat my back to some heat! Til tomorrow….

Truly Vintage with prima tales of you and me

Leave a comment

IMG_0591 (Medium)Today I have indulged my favourite style – Vintage! The paper collection is Prima Tales of you and me, and I have used the same image on both cards.On the left card I fussy cut the image, and did some clean layering, inking the edges with tea dye distress ink as I went.I added a matching chipboard butterfly,a die cut leaf, Prima flowers and ribbon.For the right hand side I went for a more shabby feel – I love this style too, but have real trouble ripping and tearing my precious papers, but still I keep trying! I used the image as it was,die cut a flourish,and added some gold twine, a Prima flower and fussy cut butterflies, ribbon and lace. Today is a glorious winter day – the sun is shining, and this afternoon I am off to the retirement village to show the ladies how to make a bendy card! Til tomorrow….

Very Vintage

Leave a comment

IMG_7741 (Medium)IMG_7740 (Medium)I can’t remember at all what company brought out these papers, and I was actually very surprised to see them in the group we are working our way through! I would imagine it was a collection that came out just after christmas when life was hugely busy and i bought without paying too much attention! anyway i obviuosly made a couple of quick cards with it before I filed it away, and I am sure we will see it again at a future date!!Simple cards, with inked edges ,lace and ribbon.( and a bit of fussy cutting). It is horrendously humid here today and there will be no sitting in the craft room. I have spent some time working on the family tree, and I am at apoint where I have to confer with dad, so that is where I will be this afternoon – besides they have refridgerated air conditioning which is not affected by humidity like our unit is! Til tomorrow….
