Leave a comment

IMG_1175 (Medium)New Home cards today! These two cards were made with October Afternoon Farm Girl papers. The one on the left has some interesting layering on it, which used up a little bit of the scrappy off cuts I had on the table left from previously made cards.I fussy cut some of the little flowers from another sheet of farm girl paper, and added some ric rac and Kaisercraft rhinestones.The houses were from the same kraft sheet as my previous post, I have had them for at least 2 years, and can’t reemember what brand they were, but they match this paper beauitully, and I have managed to use up a little more stash! I taught a class this morning, and I picked up some Tim Holtz glass bottles. I am going to make my husband a Valentines day card and put one on the card with a message inside it – I will post it when I have done it. Til tomorrow….

IMG_1173 (Medium)For these two cards I used a couple of different papers in the October Afternoon farm girl range. I fussy cut the flowers out of one sheet, and teamed them up with the gingham papers and dots papers. I die cut a spellbinders scalloped rectangle, and used the resulting frame ( the rectangle will appear on another card soon) and added buttons, ric rac, seam binding, bakers twine, and a bit of bling and kindyglitz to finish. the end of the working week for me , and a couple of days off to play with my new hexagon spellbinders and embossing folders – can’t wait! Til tomorrow….

IMG_1172 (Medium)Number 5 in my October afternoon farm Girl series, and for this one I used a lovely gingham patterned paper to cover my card blank,and a strip of paper on the side, punched with a martha stewart punch, and highlighted with a little ric rac. three lovly buttons threaded with bakers twine down the opposite side, and I fussy cut the farm girl from another piece of the patterned paper.Thats the last of the animal images, tomorrow we move on to what else you can do with this wonderful collection.I taught a class this morning with my lovely ladies, and had a terrific time with them, as always. I came home full of ideas for my March classes, so have been creating in the craft room, and will head back there now while I am in the Zone! Til tomorrow….

IMG_1169 (Medium)I loved working with this new paper from October Afternoon, called farm Girl. The images on one of the 12 x 12 sheets of paper were crying out to be fussy cut, ( that is the little girl with an assortment of animals) and the other papers in the collection are gorgeous and bright. I used a Martha stewart punch,Bakers twine, flower rhinestones, and ric rac ( which I found in my Late grans sewing bits and pieces). in Particular the ric rac and bakers twine go perfectly with this paper.I fussy cut a few flowers from another piece of paper in the collection to finish. This was such an easy collection to work with – I made a lot of cards all in  one sitting, and for once had no bits of papers left over ! Til tomorrow….
