Stamperia Pink Christmas

Leave a comment

IMG_1569IMG_1568IMG_1567IMG_1570This week I have been making Christmas cards with Stamperia Pink Christmas paper collection. This collection is rich with beautiful vintage images, and I have made 14 cards so far, with more to make!Needless to say I will have to show you these split over a few blogs! I used all sorts of bits and pieces..resin frames, lace, metals, flowers and ribbon but I also made some with no extra bits at all as shown in the top card. The third card is a gatefold card so is decorated inside as well. I can also report that I have finally finished preparing the cruise cards and can now concentrate fully on Christmas cards! I will be back soon to show you some more Stamperia cards, Til next time…..

Lemoncraft Yuletide collection, easel cards..

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….

_MG_8340Sorry I have been missing , but we had a computer hiccup here this week,and thank goodness it is fixed now with no loss of files! Today we are continuing on with Lemoncraft yuletide collection,which is perfect for vintage style cards.I did a bit of layering with bits of offcuts on these two, and added a ribbon to the left and a ribbon and a flourish that I made with a silicone mold and gap filler (!) and painted with prima alchemy paint.meanwhile i have finished my January lessons and have a couple of new stamp sets on my desk to play with. I have to make two male birthday cards and one of the stamp sets is perfect for both boys so that will be first on the agenda! Til tomorrow…..

_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….

_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……
