Kaisercraft Oh so Lovely revisited..

Leave a comment

_MG_6369 (Medium)There is a story behind today’s card…When my son Daniel was home at Christmas he mentioned that a friend in his office wished she could have come home with him so that she could spend some time in my craft room and learn how to make cards, so before Daniel went back to Sydney I made up a bit of a kit for her and this card was the prototype of the kit I sent for her to put together. She has since made it and sent me a photo of her proudly holding it! In two weeks today I will be sailing the blue seas, but when I get back I will send her some more kits. Anyway, I should mention that this paper collection is Kaisercraft Oh so lovely ( an old collection but beautiful)and the associated collectables. For now I am off to prepare tea, til tomorrow….

_MG_4262 (Medium)_MG_4263 (Medium)Today we are back to cards, and these are the final two cards I have made using My Minds Eye In Bloom papers. I made my favourite double zig zag cards and relied solely on the papers with just a couple of ribbon bows and some glitter. I die cut the sentiment with Kaisercraft all occasions die.Today is a public holiday here and i have kept the day free to be able to spend some relaxing time in the craft room. All week we have been opening many boxes of new stock at Paper Flourish and I couldn’t resist…I have quite a few new things to create with ..so without further ado  I am off to the craft room!! Til Tomorrow….

Art Impressions stamp..a male card..

Leave a comment

_MG_4641 (Medium)Due to a lack of male themed papers I have had to resort to stamps today! This is an Art Impressions stamp and I coloured it with Copics, and fussy cut around the image. I broke a golden rule and coloured first, then had to hunt around for papers to match, luckily I had some stampin up papers which did the job. The sentiment is die cut from a Kaisercraft die,and I popped the image on the card with 3d foam pads.Til tomorrow when we will finish this very short male themed series!

_MG_4653 (Medium)The last two items I made with the three Kaisercraft Indigo Skies paper that I purchased were cards and matching boxes, so I will show one today and we will finish the series with the other card and box tomorrow. For the card i die cut an oval from the patterned paper,added a fussy cut butterflies, and added flowers and a little bling. To decorate the box I added a die cut butterfly flourish ( paper rose die), ribbon, lace and another fussy cut butterfly. Til tomorrow….

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..

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….
