The final Kaisercraft Indigo Skies..

Leave a comment

lots_MG_4654 (Medium)For my last Indigo skies make I did another card and box, lots of ribbon and lace, flowers and of course the fussy cut butterflies. I actually still have a lot of butterflies left over so you will see them pop up now and again on a card or two. I was quite pleased with the amount of makes I got out of my 3 sheets of patterned paper. Next time we move on to a few male themed cards I made – there has been a lack of men styled paper so far this year and so for these ones I have had to rely on stamps and dies!Til tomorrow…..

_MG_4653 (Medium)The last two items I made with the three Kaisercraft Indigo Skies paper that I purchased were cards and matching boxes, so I will show one today and we will finish the series with the other card and box tomorrow. For the card i die cut an oval from the patterned paper,added a fussy cut butterflies, and added flowers and a little bling. To decorate the box I added a die cut butterfly flourish ( paper rose die), ribbon, lace and another fussy cut butterfly. Til tomorrow….

IMG_0019 (Medium)IMG_0020 (Medium)I should add for now, because I will revisit this paper collection! Both cards are made with the 6″ pad papers, and the fronts decorated with some of the collecables of the same range. I printed up a special insert for the bottom card that says “wishing you a FANtastic day”…I couldn’t resist the play on words…Very busy at work this week, and I haven’t spent any time in the craft room, but we have a long weekend off for Easter this weekend so I will spend some time in there then! Til tomorrow…

IMG_0006 (Medium)And now for something completely different!I love the rich colours of this paper collection, and it is completely different from what i usually work with. I started off simple with this card, I made a paper fan – something I wanted to do as soon as I saw the paper, and as luck would have it , on my desk was a red tassel, something my sister had given me attached to a present! The rest of the card was just paper and sentiment from the 6 ” pad, and a flower collectable. I used Black cardstock for the base card.It’s cooking and cleaning afternoon here so i had best get on! Til tomorrow….

IMG_7089 (Medium)IMG_7093 (Medium)Sorry I have been missing for a few days, I have been settling into my new job and setting up a new routine,but I have a day off today so thought i would catch up on some crafting! We start a new group of cards today, made with Bo Bunny 12 x 12 papers and their matching collectables ( which I think Bo Bunny call Notables …should have paid attention to that!) The top card makes good use of the flag shaped ones, I layered them, added some black bling and stamped a vertical sentiment ( one of my new stampin up stamps). The bottom card focuses more on the background paper with a gorgeous flower collectable, some black sequins,bling,ribbon bow and a sentiment cut from one of the 12 x 12 papers.I will be back tomorrow with some more from this lovely collection, meantime I am off to the craft room! til tomorrow….

simple male card idea


IMG_2740 (Medium)Todays card is one I taught yesterday in my class at Paper Flourish.It is a very simple one that doesn’t require a lot of product. I used two different sized fish tail dies ( kaisercraft) to make the shirt, and ran the larger piece through a Couture Creations pinstripe embossing folder.The bow tie was made with a template, but I do have a Stampin up punch that would have done the trick and you can also get dies ( I saw a paper rose one) that would also work.I just had to add three pearls to finish this quick and easy design.Quick post today as I can smell my cake baking in the oven – might be time to take it out! til tomorrow….
