Leave a comment

_MG_9389 (Medium)_MG_9391 (Medium) A pair of shoes today! The patterned papers are from my 12 x 12 Mambi Happy pad,and i die cut the shoes from glitter cardstock ( american crafts brand). I have also done some foiling with the Go Press and foil machine ( couture Creations) The Happy Birthday pieces are Dusty attic and foiled, and I also foiled the oval with a couture creations metal stamp specifically designed for foiling. Some flowers and ribbon bows and these two were complete! I have had a relaxing Easter break,prepared all my May lessons, and yesterday Joe, Nathan and I went for a drive up to Mt Lofty Botanical gardens. It was a beautiful day weather wise, and we all enjoyed strolling up and down the paths where we saw the leaves on the trees turning their autumn colours. Til tomorrow…..IMG_0502IMG_0497

_MG_9438 (Medium) Today is Mum and dads 62nd wedding anniversary and the whole family is getting together to celebrate, so I thought it was fitting to post this card I made with Mambi happy 12 x 12 paper pad. I die cut the hearts from more paper of the same range, die cut some white greenery(!) with a seven paper dolls die,added a kaisercraft wooden piece that I had foiled with the go press and foil, and some flowers, rhinestones and ribbon bow to finish. I hope you are all having a happy and safe Easter. Til tomorrow…..

Go press and Foil card ..the other one..

Leave a comment

_MG_9388 (Medium) While I had my Go press and foil machine out I foiled a few extra pieces to have on hand on my desk so you will see bits popping up on other random cards, but this card was all Go Press and Foil. I used the big go press and foil stamp ( its called a stamp but is actually a metal plate) to foil the aqua background and fussy cut out the centre and around the outside. I gold foiled a happy birthday chipboard piece from Dusty Attic, and the little wooden bird by Kaisercraft. The Green foiled foliage is a wooden piece by kaisercraft and I added some gorgeous flowers from Iamroses. Today is a public holiday here and I am making good use of the day off to try and clear my desk, where random projects have been started and left there! Til tomorrow….

Bright balloons with Stampin Up…

Leave a comment

_MG_6361 (Medium)Todays card uses some bazzill cardstock for layering, and a range of Stampin Up goodies that I recently purchased recently.The Die is Stampin Up Happy Birthday thinlits die and the balloons are stamped with Stampin Up Happy Birthday Gorgeous set. I punched them out with a balloon punch by Stampin Up. I put this card quickly together when I was playing around with colour combinations. I am teaching this afternoon at paper Flourish,so I am off to gather all my equipment together and spend an enjoyable afternoon creating ! Til tomorrow…..

My Minds Eye In Bloom.

Leave a comment

_MG_4266 (Medium) A natural progression from yesterdays card where I had used My Minds Eye In Bloom patterned paper as the background layer is today’s card which uses all My Minds Eye In Bloom paper. I die cut a gold foil heart, and added black lace and gold ribbon. Everything else is from the paper collection. Yesterday was very productive day in the craft room. I planned out my march classes, and started to experiment with some irridescent medium and stencils to make my own background layers that have a bit of a sheen.This is a work in progress but will share when i have something to show you! Til tomorrow….

Go Press and Foil chipboard shapes…

Leave a comment

_MG_0632 (Medium)For todays card I die cut a birdcage out of chipboard from a very old sizzix die that I had. I tried foiling normal cardstock but it is just a little too thin and requires lots and lots of shims, so I decided chipboard is the way to go!. I also foiled a kaisercraft bird wooden piece. The butterfly is just punched out of some foil cardstock I had.I die cut memory box lorelia leaf die, and added some flowers and a ribbon bow . The background papers are from kaisercraft Rose Avenue. Today is Nathans birthday so we are off out to celebrate! til tomorrow…..

 

 

 

Kaisercraft Rose Avenue number 1….

Leave a comment

_MG_2599 (Medium)Today we start a new series, Kaisercraft Rose Avenue. This paper collection is so gorgeous! I have made a lot of cards with it already, and have only just now reluctantly packed it away for the moment.We will have a couple of breaks during the posting of this group just in case you guys don’t love it as much as I do! This was one of my first makes….all edges were inked with tea Dye distress ink, and I have used a piece of the 6″ pad and matching collectables. I cut a couple of banner pieces from the script paper, and mounted a sentiment from the pad onto the back of a resin frame. Down in the lower part of the card I mounted one of the sentiments from the pad into the middle of a collectable and added a red ribbon bow. A collectable butterfly and scattering of small flowers to finish! It is very hot here today, 33 C..so everyone in the household is very lethargic, and under the air conditioning ducts is the best place to be! Til tomorrow…..
