Leave a comment

IMG_2019IMG_2020 I was sitting in the craft room doing some die cutting, but the heat was too much..it’s 10:30 am here and already 32C and more than a little bit humid, so I have moved to a cooler part of the house.Todays cards continue our series of Uniquely creative paper collection, matching Creative cuts, and assorted pretty bling . The owls on the top card have little clear resin domes over their eyes, and i have inked all my edges with Frayed Burlap distress ink. There is also a chipboard feather on the top card which I painted with Nuvo platinum mousse. i am now revising my crafty plans for today, I think I will stamp out some images, dig out my copics and sit under the air con vent! Til next time….

IMG_2021IMG_2018Uniquely creative have been known for their dies and stamps, and now they are designing their own paper collections and they are amazing! This is their first one called Wise and Free. It is available as 12 x 12 papers, and there are matching Creative cuts which  I used on these two cards. I added flowers, lace, ribbon, A uniquely Creative Doily Elements die, and actual doily, chipboard word and even sequins! Loved making these cards! I hope you all had a safe and happy Christmas, i had a lovely day with family, and am looking forward to relaxing today in the craft room until it gets too hot to be in there! Til next time….

Leave a comment

_MG_0149 (Medium)Todays card is one I made with Prima poetic Rose. I have made more with this paper but they are waiting to be photoed! I had two layers, inked around with Frayed Burlap distress ink, and added some fussy cutting and ephemera on top. there is a little metal piece tucked in behind, and some little leaves die cut in gold foil.The two big flowers are from prima, and the smaller ones are from Iamroses. Lace and greeting to finish. Although I am retired now I still intend to teach cardmaking, so this week has been spent preparing lessons and finding a lesson venue. I am going to check one next week, so it won’t be long before I have an exciting announcement to make! So looking forward to getting back into the classroom! til tomorrow….

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…..

The simplest card!

Leave a comment

_MG_0105 (Medium)Here is the simplest card I have made in quite some time! White cardstock, a Stampin Up 3D embossing folder ( so gorgeous) a length of ribbon, lace , 3 little flowers and some pearl bling. This card would be perfect for a wedding card that had to be posted, but I think I will give it to my mum for Mothers day. Sorry for the late post this weekend, but I got completely sidetracked cleaning out my crafting supplies – it was time for a spring clean and I haven’t  even scratched the surface yet. I have a little bubble of an idea forming for making card kits, but will have to pop it on the back burner until after the June fair. I will keep you all posted! 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 6,7 and 8..

Leave a comment

_MG_0085 (Medium)_MG_0091 (Medium)_MG_0100 (Medium)Today we are back to Prima Lavender Frost range of papers, and assorted matching emphemera. The top card is made with papers from the 6″ pad, and a couple of the 3 x 4 journalling cards. I fussy cut the top card and mounted it with foam pads, and cut a round metal finding in half and slid it in under the foam mounted card. The two lower cards were cards I taught in a Paper Flourish class, using the Prima Lavender frost paper and some foiling with the Go Press and Foil machine, which is how I did the gorgeous rose, ( it is a Couture Creations stamp and foil die). We foiled our chipboard happy birthday for the top card. I taught another class this week with this paper range – just love it!! Til tomorrow…
