Kaisercraft golden Grove 4 and 5

Leave a comment

_MG_1974 (Medium)_MG_1980 (Medium)Two cards today because I have been missing for a few days, very busy at work putting out lots of new stock, and buying quite a bit of it! We are back to Kaisercraft golden Grove which was one of the ranges they released last month, and is full of lovely rich autumn colours. IThe top card is a card I made for my uncles Birthday, he is a gardener and I thought he would enjoy the imagery and colours reflected in his garden. It’s all 12 x 12 sheets from the range as well as the matching collectables. The lower card also uses pieces fromĀ  a 12 x 12 sheet, with a flower and butterflies fussy cut from one of the sheets as well. If you look closely you can see some little rain drops ( or dew drops) which I made using some clear Nuvo. I have been experimenting with Nuvo, it comes in a huge range of colours and is very much like Liquid pearls, but better value, larger colour range and holds the perfect dome shape better…can you tell I am a fan? It comes in metallic ,glitter ( much better than stickles), pearl and clear . I have also been trying to clean up the craft room, but that is not going so well, too many distractions! Til tomorrow….

Kaisercraft Lilac Whisper

_MG_1964 (Medium)Last month kaisercraft released a range called Lilac Whisper,the colours in this range are beautiful and subtle, so i had a very quick play with it when it came home, sadly I haven’t got back to it yet so only have a couple of cards to show so far. Todays one uses a sheet of the 6″ pad as the background layer,and I have used a sentiment from a terrific piece of the 12 x 12 from the same range which has so many sentiments on it. A lot of collectables grouped together, and a Kaisercraft ornate die cut from some more of the 6″ pad.I am home for the day now after working this morning, and it is so cold here, although I love the thought of doing some crafting I have a feeling the afternoon will be spent with a good book in front of the heater! Til tomorrow…

_MG_9108 (Medium)_MG_9109 (Medium)Continuing on with the Autumn themed challenge,this months kaisercraft release fitted in perfectly, and here are 2 cards I made with that range. I embossed a piece of cardstock with a stampin up embossing folder for the top card, and added a few of the collectables from the range, and sprinkled sequins. For the lower card I fussy cut lots of pears ( my husband loves pears and this will be his birthday card) did some paper layering and again sprinkled a few sequins. I am on track with all the lessons I need to come up with,just have a couple more to do for the cruise, and one to thinbk about for the village ladies, so I might have a break today from the craft room, and catch up on some reading this afternoon..it’s been a lovely morning while I was working but it has become overcast now and think some rain is on it’s way..all good for the garden…til tomorrow…

Autumn colours

Leave a comment

_MG_9111 (Medium)Last month at my craft and chat group the challenge was autumn colours, and this was one of my cards for that challenge. I used Kaisercraft Sage and Grace papers for the background, and a memory box die for the leaves, and Stampin Up Botanical Blooms dies for the flowers. The centres of the flowers are liquid pearls. I had a great day in the craft room yesterday and have designed half the lessons I need for the cruise classes. My son flies back to Sydney later today, it’s been lovely spending the week with him, and we had a great night last night joining a Ghost Tour of our old Adelaide Gaol with my 2 sisters, and nephew as well. I found the history and stories interesting, but no ghostly visits, although my 2 sisters would beg to differ with a very cold breath being blown in their faces and my sisters coat button dropping off and causing great consternation in the group! A fun way to pass a couple of hours and learn more about our city at the same time.Today I will spend just a little time in the craft room while inspiration is high and continue the cruise cards as the drafts have be submiited in a week or so. til tomorrow…..

_MG_9112 (Medium) I have only made the one card with this paper collection so far, as I have been distracted with new toys. It is a gorgeous paper range with lots of birds and lovely colours, but this card uses one of the card fronts with the butterfly. There were two images of the butterfly so I fussy cut the second one and popped it on top of the first. I had very good news this morning..I am teaching card making on a cruise to Tasmania in February. I taught on this cruise this year and thoroughly enjoyed the experience, so I was thrilled when the cruise company asked if I would be interested again this season. Over the next few weeks I will be organising my classes for that. My sister will come along to lend a helping hand and will be a big help getting everything ready.Meantime, I have a few projects on the go in the craft room, so will clear those this weekend if I get the chance! Til tomorrow….

no card today, just my Go Press and Foil!

Leave a comment

IMG_7153I just had to show you all what i have been playing with today! I thought I had better learn how to use my new Go Press and Foil,so after foiling the stamps/dies that i bought when i bopught the machine, I had some scraps of foil left on the table. What to foil? Chipboard pieces that I had collected over the years! I have lots! So they are out on the table, and when ever I have finished foiling I will be using the scraps to decorate them, and now I might actually use them. It is almost more fun foiling the chipboard! Anyway that is what i am up to this afternoon, til tomorrow…..

Kaisercraft High Tea number 8….

2 Comments

_MG_7032 (Medium)We are coming to the end of my kaisercraft high tea series..one more after this one. Todays card uses the 6″ pad for the background layer,and a strip of 12 x 12 paper across the bottom, which is decorated with scraps of ribbon, lace and Green Tara flowers. The main focus is on a resin frame which I backed with a tag from the 6″ pad, and decorated with a die cut butterfly and flower. I worked all day at the shop yesterday, so I still haven’t had a chance to play with my new Go Cut and Press machine, I may find a window of opportunity today, we shall see how I feel after I have done my jobs around here! Til tomorrow…..
