Stampin Up Santa’s Workshop..

Leave a comment

_MG_0220 (Medium)_MG_0221 (Medium)_MG_0222 (Medium)Here are the first Christmas cards for this year! I have used a Stampin Up designer paper collection from last year called Santa’s Workshop, I love it because of the fussy cutting potential. I haven’t bought too much Christmas collections yet this year – I am determined to use up the papers I have ( I think I say that every year!), but I have been working with Prima Christmas in the Country and some gorgeous vintage Stamperia papers this week. The top card has a die cut glittery Christmas tree, and the top and lower card have a layer of embossed white cardstock but other than that its all paper and cardstock.- no ribbon , lace or bling to be seen! Til next time….

Kaisercraft greenhouse 4,5 and 6…

_MG_0243 (Medium)_MG_0244 (Medium)_MG_0245 (Medium)The other three cards I made with Kaisercraft Greenhouse paper collection and matching collectables. I have lots of this paper left, but had to put it away to concentrate on my Cruise cards which are coming along nicely – all the designs are done and it’s just a matter of making up all the packs.Meanwhile back to this weeks cards…I liked this paper collection because it didn’t need anything more added to it, although the first card does have a die cut succulent from Uniquely creative succulent dies set, and the second card has a few silver rhinestones. I have also been making Christmas cards this week with Prima Christmas in the Country paper collection – a gorgeous vintage range! Til next time …..

_MG_0239 (Medium)_MG_0240 (Medium)_MG_0242 (Medium)Three cards today, all made with Kaisercraft greenhouse 6″ paper pad and matching collectables. Nothing else was added to these ones except a tiny bit of bling on the top card, and a gorgeous die cut ( made with Uniquely creative Succulents die) on the middle card. Of course I loved all the fussy cutting potential of these papers!. As my thoughts turn to Christmas cards I am getting itchy fingers to dig out all my xmas dies and stamps, but I am still working on my cruise cards. I have about three weeks of prep to do for them and then look out Christmas here I come!!Til next time…..

_MG_0200 (Medium)_MG_0203 (Medium)I couldn’t resist the Lost in paradise collection by graphic 45…Flowers, birds and butterflies..Love it! Here are the first two cards I made with it once I had done a lot of fussy cutting. No fussy cutting on these ones though! I folded a double zig zag card and only used the papers – no bling , ribbon or lace needed on these ones. So quick and simple! this week has been all about cruise class prep as  the next few weeks will be until the 5 classes are all sorted.  two prepared ..three to go! Til next week…

_MG_0198 (Medium)I couldn’t resist making and exploding card when I saw the range of Graphic 45 Flutter..Butterflies everywhere! I have a you tube video on my you tube channel that shows step by step how to make this exploding box which folds down to fit into a normal sized envelope. The link is over there on the right of your screen! I have been crafting a lot this week but its all for the cruise I am teaching on in December. I haven’t had much notice really, and have to prepare 5 classes, but I am so excited to be going on the Vasco Da Gama, and being December this time I can do some Christmas cards! I have lots of other things coming up too, but more of that later! Til Next time,….

Stampin Up Bird Ballad..

Leave a comment

IMG_1430Last weekend was my sister Kays’ birthday, and I made her this card using Stampin Up Bird Ballad papers , and the associated stamp set, for two reasons…she is a keen photographer of birds, and she is a Stampin up demonstrator and the person I get all my Stampin Up supplies from. I stamped the birds, and coloured them with Copic Markers, and fussy cut some flowers from the designer papers from the Bird Ballad collection. The background paper is also from the same collection. I love this set, and have prepared a lesson for my ladies using it.The time this year is flying by, and my thoughts have now turned to Christmas cards..can’t wait to start creating some cards using new releases..first will be Prima I think.. will keep you posted! Til next time…

Mintay Secret Place 3 and 4….

Leave a comment

_MG_0154 (Medium)_MG_0155 (Medium)As promised I am back with the other two Mintay Secret Place cards that I made.  A lot of fussy cutting on these two!. On the top card I added lace, a metal piece cut in half ( the other half is on the lower card and that is a good trick to extend your stash)and the resin frame is one I made . The second card has a little die cut flourish and a couple of layered banner tags cut from tiny scraps tucked under the metal. Seeing these cards again makes me itch to get this paper out again and start creating, but I am busy today putting some card kits together…Til next time..
