Kaisercraft Hanami Garden number 4…

Leave a comment

IMG_0012 (Medium)I concentrated on the gold element of the Kaisercraft hanami garden collection for this card,although I still used a black card base to tie in the black elements on the card .The paper is from the 6″ pad, as are the sentiment tag and circle. The flowers and pagoda are from the collectables pack. I just had to add some gold sequins and a little kindyglitz to finish this one. I have been over to the chemist this morning to have my Flu injection,so glad that’s done, and this afternoon I will catch up with Mum and my sister. I have also booked my stall at the June long weekend Salisbury Craft Fair, so from now until then it will be all about preparing my stock and having a bit of a clear out to sell some unwanted items. Til tomorrow….

Kaisercraft Ooh La La number 4..

Leave a comment

img_8028-mediumSorry I have been missing a little bit this week, but I have been working extra hours due to the Christmas rush at work.Over the next couple of weeks I may be posting a little less due to the same reason. We are going back to my Ooh La La cards made with Kaisercraft Ooh La La paper collection and matching collectables. This is the paper I reached for when I  damaged my shoulder and couldn’t do any die cutting – things have improved only a little but I have become adept at die cutting with my left hand, but still avoid it when I can!  For this card I used papers from the 6″ pad., and layered them up, fussy cutting around the tops of the flower paper layer, and a tag from the pad. A collectables butterfly ,ribbon bow, kaisercraft pearls and green Tara flower all added texture. Til tomorow….

img_3328-mediumTodays card is a Christmas card made with kaisercraft Silent Night. I have posted a few cards made with this paper collection a few weeks back and this one missed out for some technical reason!I have used some of the matching collectables, inked around all the edges with Tea dye distress ink,and added a gold cord bow. I only have a few Christmas cards left in the queue so over the next couple of days I will post them and then we will put Christmas makes 2016 behind us! I have been slowly making weding cards with Kaisercraft new paper collection – PS I love you, and discovered when I had finished them that they would be too bulky for envelopes so I have been busy making boxes for them..that will teach me to get carried away with embellishing! Wedding and baby cards are my favourite cards to make – What is your favourite card make? Til tomorrow….

Special Christmas card..

Leave a comment

img_3310-mediumA quick visit back to Christmas cards, and this one was made with someone special in mind – she doesn’t like the traditional colours, so each year I get to experiment with non Christmas colours. This is this years one – the paper is from Stampin Up, and the dies are Kaisercraft. I backed the died outline with silver cardstock, ( the actual dies were cut out of black glitter card) and added some silver cord.Til tomorrow…..

img_3308-mediumimg_3309-mediumHere are my last 2 cards made with Graphic 45 Cafe Parisian for now.The cardstock I used is from Stampin Up and blends in well with the colours on this paper. Just lots of layering and fussy cutting on both cards and a ribbon bow on each for a touch of texture. As I am still restricted with my shoulder as to what i can acheive in the craft room i thought this weekend I might have a try at making some flower sprays, so i have been gathering odd flowers, leaves , wire and various other bits and pieces and will sit down this afternoon and see what happens! Til tomorrow….
