Leave a comment

_MG_9677_MG_9678_MG_9679I made 6 Easel cards with lemoncraft Yuletide collection, I will show the other 3 next time…Most of the extra bits I added were already on my craft desk, The middle card has a frame I made with a mold and gap filler ( from the hardware shop) and painted with prima alchemy paints. the bottom card has as it’s stopper a Christmas tree decoration which I rubbed with some Nuvo copper mousse to give it a bit of shine. other than a bit of ribbon and lace the rest was  various papers from the collection and a little fussy cutting. Today is my day off, and it is really hot here (35C) . Nathan and I have been grocery shopping, it’s all put away and we are exhausted! I doubt today will be a crafty day, maybe a good day to write out my Christmas cards! Til tomorrow….

Leave a comment

_MG_8318 (Medium)_MG_8337 (Medium)_MG_8338 (Medium)It is still Lemoncraft yuletide designer paper collection on my blog today, lots of matting, and using little leftover scraps as banners, a bit of fussy cutting and not too much more embellishing required, just bits of gold thread, and ribbon. The bottom card had a doily and a foiled chipboard pinecone as well. Everything is inked with tea Dye distress ink.  Today is my craft and chat group so I am off to get some projects sorted although more  chat than craft takes place! Til tomorrow….

Lemoncraft Yuletide paper collection..

Leave a comment

_MG_8323 (Medium)_MG_8336 (Medium)Today we are embracing vintage with this collection from Lemoncraft called Yuletide. I have added a few interesting bits and pieces to these cards – The top card has a flourish i made with a mold and some painters caulk, and then painted with prima Alchemy paints,. I also foiled a small chipboard piece, and added some gold thread and a pearl and all my edges were inked with Tea dye distress ink. The bottom card has more of the molds I made and painted gold, a ribbon and a bit of a die cut I had lying on my desk! I have just finished working a very long two weeks with just a couple of days off, so not much time for crafting as I have been catching up on housework today, but things should get back to normal now..and it’s time for me to be thinking of my January lessons – wow the new year already! til tomorrow….

Stampin Up Santas Workshop..

_MG_8343 (Medium)_MG_8344 (Medium)_MG_8345 (Medium)Here are some more fun Christmas cards I have made with Stampin Up Santas workshop collection. I have added the bare minimum of embellishing to this group of cards, the papers are already embossed and / or glittered, and I have just fussy cut extra layers for some 3 D effects.  I have finished my Christmas makes for this year,( but have so many more to show you ) and normally at this stage I pack up all the Christmas for next year, but this paper is staying out and I will continue to make cards with it throughout the year, it is so much fun to work with! Til tomorrow……

Stampin Up Santas Workshop

Leave a comment

_MG_8319 (Medium)_MG_8320 (Medium)I had great fun creating with this collection of papers and matching card fronts from stampin Up ( Santas Workshop)..It was a change from the vintage and traditional papers that I have been working with. There were lots of images  to fussy cut so I had fun  building layers of the same image for a bit of dimension,  and I really only had to add a little ribbon for texture as some of the papers were already embossed and glittered. tomorrow I will show you the other three cards I made before I had to pack up to create classes. I will get back to it though, I am going to be much more organised next year for Christmas – I think I will just keep creating all year ! Til tomorrow….

Stampin Up Christmas 2018..

Leave a comment

IMG_8109 (Large)IMG_8112 (Large)IMG_8113 (Large)Todays Christmas cards use all Stampin Up supplies from their seasonal catalogue. I have used the chicken wire, washi tape, ribbon, and stamps ( stamp set is called Joy and Noel, and I coloured with Copic markers) and the corregated pieces behind are embossed with Stampin Ups new corregated embossing folder..this will be a favourite used all year round! It has been a busy week with work, and at home I have moved my craft room so that my second son can move back home for a short while, as he relocates from Sydney back to Adelaide for work. It was an eye opener to move that craft room and realise how much supplies I have gathered over the years. Time to start using all of it! Til tomorrow…..
