Vertical Greetings

Leave a comment

IMG_0038 (Medium)Today’s card was a quick and easy card of layering and stamping. I used a stamp set from Stampin Up called Vertical garden, and stamped the greeting and topiary tree straight onto the cardstock. I stamped the pot again on a scrap of paper, fussy cut and popped it over the top of the green stamped pot with 3d foam squares. I am thinking of doing a similar design for one of my cruise cards…I spent a lovely afternoon yesterday in the craft room, but today we are going out and about for a drive out of the city to see the autumn colours..til tomorrow….

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….

Today I am heading in to the craft room to fulfill some orders, after i tidy my desk..if I can find it under the pile of bits and pieces I keep stacking on it! Til tomorrow…

IMG_0027 (Medium)Today’s card is a side stepper card made with Kaisercraft Madamoiselle paper collection. I used a cut out from a 12 x 12 piece of paper from the collection, and all the other little bits are from the collectables pack. The sentiment is die cut with akaisercraft die (Occasions) as is the foilage, and I added a Prima flower, and some lace and a ribbon bow. I have instructions on how to make the side stepper card on my You Tube channel..Helens card designs. I picked up a few pices of new paper today from the Kaisercraft new release called Sage and Grace, lovely soft colours, so now just have to find some time to sit down with it! Til tomorrow….
