Mintay Christmas Stories…3 and 4..

Leave a comment

IMG_8105 (Large)IMG_8106 (Large)Here are the other two Mintay Christmas Stories cards I made before I got distracted by other equally beautiful Christmas papers! I did a lot of fussy cutting here, and didn’t add too much more – just a little bling and sparkle! This week has been very busy at work, I haven’t had any home time to craft, and working tomorrow as well so not looking good for weekend crafting either..never mind I am sure I will make up for that next week! Til tomorrow…..

Kaisercraft Christmas Wishes 10,11,12..

IMG_8084 (Large)IMG_8085 (Large)IMG_8087 (Large)I can’t say it often enough..this collection of papers and collectables ( kaisercraft Christmas Wishes) is so easy to use, and only requires a ribbon bow or a bit of glitter to finish the cards, as you can see in these most recent cards. The top card is particularly interesting. The background layer was a sheet from the 6′ pad which I ran over with a distress ink pad, then wiped off, and the words appeared as if by magic!! It has a gloss finish. I think all the embellishments on these three cards are from the collectables pack, so no fussy cutting to do, and all background papers were from the 6″ pad. Day off today, I have intentions of practising my freehand watercolouring after I have done some paperwork…til tomorrow….

Continuing on with Kaisercraft Christmas Wishes, I used  some of the matching collectables on the top card, and a few fussy cut elements on the lower two cards. On the top card I have used some Nuvo drops, and of course there has to be a card with a ribbon bow amongst the group somewhere!  Today is the start of daylight savings here, the clocks have gone forward, I have lost an hour and I am running behind in everything! Til tomorrow…..

IMG_8054 (Large)IMG_8073 (Large)IMG_8075 (Large)Kaisercraft Christmas Wishes collection pack, collectables and 6″ pad…Not much else required..a bit of bling, a ribbon bow ….thats it! The bottom card has a sentiment which is a Couture Creations hot Foil stamp which I did on my Go press and Foil machine and then die cut with a Seven paper Dolls die. When i have my Hot foil machine out I tend to do a few at once so that I have a bit of a collection to choose from on my desk. I have to say I do love my foil machine! I have been spreading the word about it , running regular classes at paper Flourish showing all the different things you can do with it, and some of the ladies have given me more ideas and uses too which I am looking forward to investigating. In the meantime, today is my craft and chat gathering and looking forward to catching up with my crafty friends for a relaxing afternoon. We may even get some crafting done! Til tomorrow….

It’s time for Christmas!

IMG_8041 (Large)IMG_8037 (Large)IMG_8072 (Large)Today begins the official start of my Christmas card makes..and I am starting off with cards made with kaisercraft Christmas Wishes paper collection. I purchased the collection pack, collectables and the 6 ” pad, and I have made so many with this collection already. I will ( to alleviate boredom!) put them up 3 at a time and we will have a couple of breaks through out to also see other cards I have been making. My favourite card fold this year has been the double zig zag card so the first few are all in this design. Everything on these cards except for the bling  has come from the listed supplies at the start of the blog,  the collection pack comes with a sticker sheet which has come in handy for the strips across the smaller zig zag fold. I have done a little fussy cutting from some of the papers – the birds and the holly for example. Today is a day off but I am off to have a cortisone injection in my foot…not happy as I have had these before and they hurt!! I am hoping for short time hurt for long time gain! Til tomorrow…..

The last of the Christmas Z-fold cards!

Leave a comment

_MG_2626 (Medium)_MG_2627 (Medium)Here are my last two Z-fold cards made with Kaisercraft Mint Wishes, still the same 3 sheets i purchased with just the addition of some pearl bling and silver twine. I think I mentioned that i bought the sticker sheet in this range, but I didn’t! the strips on the smaller z-fold pieces were conveniently on one of the sheets of paper already to size which made these cards really quick and easy to put together, and the merry christmas sentiments that I used were on the bottom of one of the sheets on that identity strip that we usually trim off and throw away! Tomorrow one last “normal” card that I made with the leftover pieces and then we move on to something completely different! Til tomorrow…..

Kaisercraft mint wishes double z fold cards..

Leave a comment

_MG_2623 (Medium)_MG_2625 (Medium)two more double z – fold cards just using a couple of bits of paper from Kaisercraft Mint Wishes collection. The pine cone on the top card pictured is a kaisercraft wooden piece which I foiled in chocolate through the Go Press and foil machine. The Baubles on the second card are fussy cut from a piece of the patterned paper from the collection.I have added a photo under my script to show you what I spent last evening doing! We got in some new Nuvo Products at paper Flourish and I just had to try them out.They are Nuvo glimmer paste and come in a range of colours, but I just picked up the clear and the gold, and so far I have tried it out on wooden pieces,painted on with a paintbrush, dabbed little bits ( mainly to clean my brush off) on flowers, and then I found a stencil, attached it to some cardstock and painted the glimmer paste through the stencil..this technique looks amazing! It dries in about 10 minutes, so no long waiting around for it to dry.IMG_7197
