_MG_4647 (Medium)_MG_4648 (Medium)I only purchased 3 sheets of this collection, and one of the sheets was covered with gorgeous blue butterflies, so immediately I fussy cut those(!)I managed to make a lot of different crafty items with my small purchase,and we will start with the standard cards today. The top card relies heavily on the papers, and I added lace down both sides of the banner and sprinkled rhinestones all over for some shiny bling. The bottom card only has a fussy cut butterfly from the collection, the rest is plain cardstock, with punched corners and a die cut  corner butterfly flourish ( Paper Rose brand). Some glitter a ribbon bow and bling to finish. I am teaching tonight so heading in to work later this afternoon  so for now I am going to head into the craft room, there is some new graphic 45 in there that is calling my name! This week has been full time hours at work, so I probably won’t get back here until Saturday, so I won’t say til tommorrow, I will say Stay safe until the weekend!

die cutting fun!

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….

IMG_0026 (Medium)There is quite a bit happening on todays card so we will get right into it! Everything has the edges sponged with Tea Dye distress ink pad. The background layer, bracket shape, and sentiments are from Kaisercraft Madamoiselle 6″ pad, and the layer on top is from the cut apart 12 x 12 paper from the same range. On this piece I used a stampin up fancy corner punch . The foilage is a kaisercraft die, the flowers are from Prima and Green tara,and I also added flat backed pearls, a ribbon bow, fussy cut butterfly ( from the same paper range) and kindyglitz. Til tomorrow…..

IMG_0025 (Medium)This one is a favourite because it has everything on it that I love…Lace, pleated ribbon ( stampin up), gorgeous prima flowers,flat backed pearls and mini foilage ( kaisercraft Die). The papers are from the Madamoiselle collection ( 6″ pad) and the butterfly is fussy cut from a piece of 12 x 12 paper from the same range. We had a very busy day at work yesterday with the huge clearance sale, so today is all about catching up with some work around here, visiting Mum for her birthday, and then into the craft room to make some card orders! Til tomorrow…..

IMG_0019 (Medium)IMG_0020 (Medium)I should add for now, because I will revisit this paper collection! Both cards are made with the 6″ pad papers, and the fronts decorated with some of the collecables of the same range. I printed up a special insert for the bottom card that says “wishing you a FANtastic day”…I couldn’t resist the play on words…Very busy at work this week, and I haven’t spent any time in the craft room, but we have a long weekend off for Easter this weekend so I will spend some time in there then! Til tomorrow…

Hanami Garden number 3…

IMG_0010 (Medium)for todays Kaisercraft Hanami garden I used some papers from the 6″ pad, and a collectable ( fan)on which i stuck a black ribbon, but the main thing here is the stamped image which I coloured. The stamp came  as a freebie on a magazine, and came at just the right time for these papers! I coloured  it with Copics, and decorated with a couple of gold sequins. I have been to work, and I am home again now, I have a pot of casserole on the stove which is destined for the freezer,and tonights tea is all prepared, so a bit of free time this afternoon to maybe tidy up the craft room! Til tomorrow…..

IMG_0006 (Medium)And now for something completely different!I love the rich colours of this paper collection, and it is completely different from what i usually work with. I started off simple with this card, I made a paper fan – something I wanted to do as soon as I saw the paper, and as luck would have it , on my desk was a red tassel, something my sister had given me attached to a present! The rest of the card was just paper and sentiment from the 6 ” pad, and a flower collectable. I used Black cardstock for the base card.It’s cooking and cleaning afternoon here so i had best get on! Til tomorrow….
