Kaisercraft High Tea number 1 ….

Leave a comment

_MG_7021 (Medium)Today I am starting a new card series, using Kaisercraft High Tea collection. I love this paper collection, and have made a lot of cards with it, so we may have a bit of a break half way through..This first card has a layer of paper from the 6″ pad on top of a pink card base. I have some resin frames bought very cheaply, and I can’t get them any more, but they are perfect for cards as they are very lightweight. You will see them featured on future cards. I used a sentiment from the same pad, and stuck it behind the frame,it fitted perfectly! I die cut a circle from some more patterned paper from the pad, and the two  die cuts I used before decorating with assorted flowers were memory box lorelia leaf and Paper Rose ornate circle. The weekend is here and I am so looking forward to relaxing in the craft room after all my house work is done! Til tomorrow….

_MG_7043 (Medium)I have the morning off today as I am teaching tonight,so I thought I would post the last of my Graphic 45 Portrait of a Lady cards ( for now, of course I will come back to this paper at a later date!) Today’s card has a black card base, and the image is fussy cut from one of the 12 x 12 papers. There is a bundle of assorted flowers and punched leaves in the bottom corner. This one was a quick and easy card to put together, and sold at the craft fair along with all the other cards in this series. I had a lovely three days at the craft fair, catching up with like minded crafters, buying some supplies such as lace, and selling a lot of the cards I have made over the last year. This is great because i can start filling my boxes all over again for next year! Til tomorrow…..

Graphic 45 Portrait of a lady….(2)

Leave a comment

_MG_7041 (Medium)On my desk was some very thick acetate from packaging and it was perfect to make this card. I took a square blank card and chopped a large piece from the front middle section,and replaced it with the acetate, keeping cardstock at the bottom of the card for weight and balance.( I attached lace to this piece). The rest of the card was decorated with various pieces of patterned paper from the Graphic 45 range.. Portrait of a Lady.The front image was attached behind the acetate with very small glue dots. Although they are just visible they are not too noticable. I added lots of flowers and some punched greenery in the left corner. This is a favourite card and will be hard to sell! Today is going to be a day spent in the craft room, I haven’t had much time to get in there and just create lately so I am looking forward to it! til tomorrow…..

IMG_0030 (Medium)IMG_0031 (Medium)IMG_0032 (Medium)Hi! So sorry I have been missing for a few days, but this week has been amazingly busy at work, with lots of new products coming in and it was all hands on deck to get them all out on the shelves. I don’t think there was one day when I didn’t come home without purchasing something! Today I have posted 3 cards to make up for it, and these cards are very similar to the cards I am teaching next week. I have used what looks like a lot of dies, but really the list is quite short! here goes… Memory box lorelai leaf, Paper Rose Vases and stems,Flower set one and Leaf scrolls. The embossing folders on two of the cards are Kaisercraft decorative frames embossing folders ( you may recognise these from the last post…I do like them!) The flowers on the bottom card are martha stewart punches. Some of you may also have noticed that I embossed the top part of the vase on the top card with one of the embossing folders. These cards have lots of potential as a favourite design because they can been done in lots of different colourways and I think they have made it onto the short list for my cruise cards. Today is Roast day so thats in the oven, and I am really looking forward to sitting in the craft room, new stuff will have to wait though as I am going to start working on my July class cards …all in all a great day ! til tomorrow….

Oh so succulent stamp set..

Leave a comment

IMG_0035 (Medium)For this card I used the Stampin Up Oh so succulent stamp set, stampin onto  watercolour card and colouring with inks. Although I have the matching die set i found it quicker and easier to fussy cut the images myself. On another piece of white card I did a watercolour wash in blue, stuck down half a doily, die cut a circle and trimmed it to a pot shape, and then arranged my plants! I trimmed some of the front of the card off, and added a strip of patterned paper on the back part of the card. I truly enjoyed making this card even if I did spend a little bit of time on it! I have been busy this week making orders, 12 at last count, but everything is caught up with now and I am hoping to cut into my new papers ( 2 lots now.. Kaisercraft High tea and sage and grace) in the coming days. til tomorrow….

A die cut card..

Leave a comment

IMG_7099 (Medium)I have playing around with my dies and mixing them up a bit – normally I like to keep the different companies separated…but I am going to bite the bullet and experiment! The simplest way for me to start now that I can finally use my die cutting machine is with different dies, so on this card  have mixed Paper Rose flower and flourish dies with a memory keepers die and a kaisercraft ( butterfly) die. Pearls for a bit of bling and a stampin up sentiment.This one is going to be adapted to a class in the near future. Roast is in the oven, leek and potato soup on the oven, and now it’s craft time! til tomorrow….

Kaisercraft Ooh La La 15 and 16..

IMG_2744 (Medium)IMG_2747 (Medium)Two cards today, made with kaisercraft Ooh La La, and some white space.I don’t often leave white space on my cards, but I like these and will experiment with more white space cards in the future. There is a mixture of fussy cut images, and collectables on both cards, with a little ribbon, a lace flower and just a couple of flowers.I spent a lovely afternoon in the craft room yesterday, I did miss crafting while I was away.This afternoon I am popping in there to make Mum and Dad a 61st wedding anniversary card and I have been doing a little tidying as I go too.Til tomorrow….
