Nuvo Glimmer Paste!!

2 Comments

_MG_0604 (Medium) A couple of weeks ago we got some new Nuvo Glimmer Paste into the shop, and I couldn’t resist having a bit of a play with it!I used the clear glimmer paste and brushed it through a stencil to create the glittery background on this card. I love Glimmer paste! It is really shiny and glittery, and dries really quickly. I used the gold glimmer paste to paint the chipboard bird, and the background paper on this card is Kaisercraft Rose Avenue. I added flowers, ribbon and lace to finish. I thought I had finished my cruise cards this week but they asked for another class so I have been working on that and today I am off to the craft room to make a couple of birthday cards for upcoming birthdays. Til tomorrow…..

Kaisercraft Rose Avenue number 7

Leave a comment

_MG_0622 (Medium)Kaisercraft Rose Avenue papers from the 6″ pad, with the matching collectables,and an acetate butterfly that was found on my desk…I have used a couple of flowers, some lace and ribbon and I die cut a Kaisercraft border die. The green leaves are die cut with a Sue Wilson die and the white leaves are punched with a Stampin Up punch. To give the leaves some movement I used a flower shaper tool ( a tool with a little ball on the end and a new favourite tool for me!) to curl the leaves a little bit. Here we will take a little break from the Kaisercraft Rose Avenue collection and find something else to look at for a few days before coming back to it later …In the craft room I have been jumping from one thing to another, I seem to have lots of projects on the go, and my desk has disappeared under the weight of lots of on-going projects so it is time to organise myself!Til tomorrow…..

Kaisercraft Rose Avenue number 2….

Leave a comment

_MG_2611 (Medium) I used a piece of patterned paper from the 6″ pad for the first layer of todays’ card, and a strip of paper left on my desk from yesterdays card ( also from the 6″ pad) for a border across the bottom, with a strip of old fashioned lace peeking out from the top of it. The sentiment is from a piece of the Rose Avenue 12 x 12 sheets and this time I trimmed it a little bigger than the frame, and inked around everything with tea dye distress ink. A die cut flourish, flowers and ribbon were the finishing touches.I am spending the morning at the craft desk putting finishing touches to januarys lessons, and I am  so happy to report that all the cruise cards are cut,die cut embossed and ready to pack!! I am teaching tonight and looking forward to catching up with my ladies! til tomorrow….

chipboard foiling..

Leave a comment

_MG_2603 (Medium) This is the card I made that inspired the whole theme of the class I taught this week at Paper Flourish. I loved the mix of white and soft sea green. I have used a Stampin Up embossing folder, Paper Rose nested stitched dies,and the sentiment is a Dusty Attic chipboard piece which I foiled in the Go Press and Foil machine. The green foilage is a Memory box die, and all the flowers are from I am Roses. I must fly now as we are off to a garden wedding, hope the weather stays dry! Til tomorrow…..

kaisercraft Mint Wishes number 6

Leave a comment

_MG_2613 (Medium)This is the last of my Kaisercraft mint Wishes cards. The left over of  my 3 sheets of  paper I gave to Mum. This one isn’t a Christmas card, it’s a card for any occasion! I did like the pastel green colour used in this range, and really this was just a corner panel of one of the sheets of paper, with a strip stuck across the bottom and a punched butterfly in the top corner. I highlighted little bits of the design with kindyglitz.A whole new series starts tomorrow! Til tomorrow…..

Pretty in Pink!

Leave a comment

_MG_4591 (Medium)Todays card is a card i made with the retirement village ladies. I love layering up shades of colours and pink always looks gorgeous. The die is a spellbinders label die, and after die cutting in white cardstock I ran it through my swiss dots embossing folder..and oldie but goodie…never grows old! Then it was just a matter of gluing on some roses ( from Iam roses) and a ribbon. To glue on the roses I used 450 glue which is a clear fast drying glue perfect for this job! A rainy day here, and I have just got home from work so i am off to have some lunch! til tomorrow…..

Kaisercraft golden Grove 4 and 5

Leave a comment

_MG_1974 (Medium)_MG_1980 (Medium)Two cards today because I have been missing for a few days, very busy at work putting out lots of new stock, and buying quite a bit of it! We are back to Kaisercraft golden Grove which was one of the ranges they released last month, and is full of lovely rich autumn colours. IThe top card is a card I made for my uncles Birthday, he is a gardener and I thought he would enjoy the imagery and colours reflected in his garden. It’s all 12 x 12 sheets from the range as well as the matching collectables. The lower card also uses pieces from  a 12 x 12 sheet, with a flower and butterflies fussy cut from one of the sheets as well. If you look closely you can see some little rain drops ( or dew drops) which I made using some clear Nuvo. I have been experimenting with Nuvo, it comes in a huge range of colours and is very much like Liquid pearls, but better value, larger colour range and holds the perfect dome shape better…can you tell I am a fan? It comes in metallic ,glitter ( much better than stickles), pearl and clear . I have also been trying to clean up the craft room, but that is not going so well, too many distractions! Til tomorrow….
