Go Press and Foil Card

Leave a comment

_MG_1970 (Medium) I have another couple of Go Press and Foil cards to show, so this one today.. I used a kaisercraft embossing folder for the frame ( I have since mastered foiling with my embossing folders so that will be coming soon!) and foiled a todo sentiment stamp made especially for the foiling machine, trimmed it to fit into the frame, and added Green tara flowers,and a foiled chipboard butterfly. the greenery were die cuts on my desk, I have got into the habit when I am diecutting greenery and flourishes to cut a few extra so that I don’t have to stop and dig out dies when I am on a making streak. I have started on my Christmas cards at last, with some lovely new Kaisercraft christmas paper called Christmas Jewel. It has amazing shades of purple and lilac, and silver and I wasn’t going to purchase, but these cards are making themselves,easy paper to work with! til tomorrow….

Kaisercraft Lilac Whisper number 2….

Leave a comment

_MG_1965 (Medium)I used the same kaisercraft ornate die set on this card, with kaisercraft lilac whisper 12 x 12 papers and collectables. The resin frame is one I bought a few of and can’t get any more…shame, they are fantastic, and weigh very little so perfect for cards. Luckily I still have some left so you will see them pop up now and again on my cards. For the rest of the card just some flowers and a ribbon bow. Today I have spent some time experimenting with some new products, I like to keep abreast of the products we sell at the shop so that I can recommend with confidence so today I was playing with Nuvo embossing powder, and I was impressed, once heat embossed it looks like you have triple embossed it is so thick even though it is only one application. I tried it with a script stamp as well to see if you would lose the definition as it sems to be so thick but you can still see the script, so thats good. I feel this product warrants more testing with different colours! I also had some new dies, and some Prima Colour Bloom spray mists I was playing with, and of course in between doing some more Go Press and Foiling on some Christmas chipboard pieces, so lots of bits and pieces on my desk to turn into cards. Great fun! Til tomorrow….

_MG_9105 (Medium)_MG_9106 (Medium)Here are the other two cards I made for my group Christmas in July challenge..I hadn’t been out to the Craft room annex ( shed) for my Christmas stash so really used what was to hand in the craft room, and I had been making lessons with some Kaisercraft dies, and I always have a bit of glitter paper in the craft room.  The stitched oval is a Paper Rose die, and I die cut the bauble on the top card and foiled it through the Go Press and Foil machine as I was experimenting with that new toy at the time. The rest was just assorted bling on my desk. Its a lazy kind of afternoon this afternoon after a busy morning at work, and I am going to have a bit of a sit down with a good book today! Til tomorrow….

img_2736-mediumimg_2737-mediumThis is my last blog for a couple a weeks while I go on my Cruise. We leave tomorrow so today has been a mad rush to finish packing, and do some shopping for the menfolk ( they have their menu plan written out so they are quite organised!). Today is a good day to finish up with my Kaisercraft Cherry Tree Lane collection. I have enjoyed making with this collection and I do still have some left, so we will revisit it at some stage.The top card is layers of papers from the 6″ pad,with a collectable , lace, ribbon and a hat pin ( by Prima). the lower card  has a die cut Ornate circle ( paper rose) and a collectable.That’s all from me for now, see you all in 2 weeks!

Kaisercraft Cherry Tree Lane number 7..

img_2732-mediumWorking with the blue shades from the Kaisercraft Cherry Tree Lane collection,I came up with this one which uses some dies and punches to make the flower, and a very old button from my collection to highlight the tag. The papers are from the 6″ pad,and I have layered a couple of the pull apart tags inking around all the edges with Tea Dye distress ink.I spent a lovely hour over at Paper Flourish today, browsing,chatting and buying, I bought a few more copic markers as I am trying to build my collection, and picked up some lovely papers from Bo Bunny called Petal Lane ( gorgeous papers in shades of soft pink  and yellow with pops of black) and a new Kaisercraft 6″ paper pad called Hanami Garden which is a Japanese inspired collection.Now I am off to the craft room to create! Til tomorrow….

img_8030-mediumNo die cutting or stamping on this card – just all paper!I used a bit of everything in the collection – some papers from the 6″ pad, collectables, and one of the card front rectangles from a 12 x 12 paper.Did some fussy cutting, and added some bling. Got to love this paper! Til tomorrow….

Stampin Up Star of light

Leave a comment

img_3531-mediumThe third and Final Village card was one made with almost all Stampin Up supplies. The Stamp set is Star of light and I also used the matching die set. I stamped little stamps in blue sky ink before running the layer through a stampin up embossing folder. This one is a very simple card with very little embellishment. I have managed to make a few cards over the last couple of days, pacing myself and staying right away from the die cutting machine!Thank goodness for Kaisercraft ooh La La paper collection – no need for dies with this collection! Til tomorrow….
