Prima Georgia Blue

2 Comments

_MG_0109 (Medium) I  quick post today, just to let you all know that I am still here! I have had a whirlwind of a couple of weeks, and I have finally retired! I have one more class next week, but essentially as from last weekend I am a lady who lunches! I have had so much fun spending my last two years working in the craft shop, but its time to concentrate on my own crafting. I am looking forward to creating more, and at the moment I am getting prepared for my stall at the local 3 day craft fair in June, and who knows I might be able to get back to more regular posts! On to today’s card… I bought all the Georgia Blue range from Prima, and this is one of the cards I have had time to create with it so far! I guess that will change now! The very bottom layer is actually some vellum that came in the flower packaging, and I have used a 3x 4 journalling card from the same range, along with emphemera, flowers, and a die cut glitter swirl. Til tomorrow…..

AB Studio card..

Leave a comment

_MG_0101 (Medium)Todays card is made with a piece of AB Studio paper I picked up because I loved the bird! He was fussy cut as was some greenery from the page and the card was added to from there.  Some lace, a metal finding cut in half and slipped in under one of the frames I made, and some Scrapeniac chipboard which I painted with Prima alchemy paints.My edged were distressed, and inked with frayed burlap distress ink. Just a quick post today, as I am busy preparing for the 3 day yearly craft fair I attend in June which is only a few weeks away now..Til next time…

Cards in Boxes..

Leave a comment

_MG_0037 (Medium)_MG_0038 (Medium)I have enjoyed making quite a few cards that fitted more comfortably into a box rather than an envelope. My photographer Nathan has chosen to photograph these ones in their box, so you may not see the full 3D’ness of them, but trust me they needed a box! the top card is made with Mintay Birdsong papers. I taught a class using this range of papers this week, it is gorgeous, and I am now tempted to again get my papers out and make some more cards with this range. I have used one of my handmade frames, and some lace, flowers and metal embellishment . The bottom card is Prima Georgia Blues, and there is a lot of gold foil on this range of papers which explains the flash on the photo..poor Nathan must have been blinded with that! You can see why this one needed a box – lots of lovely fabric and paper flowers, lace and emphemera. I hope you are all having a safe and happy Easter break, til  next time…..

Prima Lavender Frost 8 and 9

Leave a comment

_MG_0170 (Medium)_MG_0147 (Medium)Here are my final Prima lavender frost cards for now. These two cards use some of the 12 x 12 papers, and the matching flowers from the range. I also added a couple of die cut swirls and a little chipboard piece that was on my craft desk at the time! Tiny scraps of lace came in handy, as did my little handmade bird on the bottom card. I made the little bird with a mold and some “no more gaps” from the hardware shop! This is not the last you will see of my makes with this paper – we will just take a little break from them for now. I have booked my stall for the craft fair on the June long weekend,and so now a lot of my time  will be spent sorting out all my cards ready for sale! Til tomorrow….

Pion Days Gone By…

_MG_1788 (Medium)_MG_1791 (Medium)_MG_1795 (Medium)Todays cards are made with Pion Designs papers, and I have done a different kind of card base…I guess you could call it a triple fold step down?I have used a 12 x 12 cardstock base, and scored it every 10 cm.( the height is 15 cm for the back panel, and stepped down on the other two panels). The front panel is an extra piece of cardstock, and I cut it with a tab which is attached to the front 10 cm panel and that is all hidden with papers. I have shown you two views of the top card so that you can see what I am talking about! I am officially all organised for the Christmas break, I hope you all have a safe and happy holidays and I will see you all after the festivities!

_MG_6378 (Medium)I have had this paper for a while, but I don’t think I had done anything with it until I stumbled upon it in the craft room a couple of weeks ago.. I wonder how many more collections are hiding in there waiting to be stumbled upon? I have started teaching some Shabby Chic classes at work but I am only a beginner myself so I just practised a bit on this card. I distressed all my edges, and then inked with Tea dye distress ink, and up in the left hand corner I used some Nuvo Glitter paste through a stencil just to see how that would work..not badly as it turns out! I added some random flowers in the lower left corner and some of the collectables from the collection to finish.  I received all my boarding information today for the cruise I am teaching on next week, craft suitcases are packed, not long now!! til tomorrow…..

another stenciled background..

_MG_6370 (Medium) Todays card is made with pieces of cardstock that I was experimenting with. I took some white cardstock and stenciled through a Kaisercraft stencil with Liquitex iridescent medium. It leaves a lovely pearly pattern on my cardstock. To make the card I just used whatever was on my craft desk which happened to be some Prima bits and pieces and a die cut fence and white ribbon. This morning we went and picked up a new puppy who we have called daisy, and at the moment she is getting to know our other puppy Luna. They will be best mates, I am sure, at the moment they are running around the back yard! Til tomorrow…..
