Mintay Christmas Stories…3 and 4..

Leave a comment

IMG_8105 (Large)IMG_8106 (Large)Here are the other two Mintay Christmas Stories cards I made before I got distracted by other equally beautiful Christmas papers! I did a lot of fussy cutting here, and didn’t add too much more – just a little bling and sparkle! This week has been very busy at work, I haven’t had any home time to craft, and working tomorrow as well so not looking good for weekend crafting either..never mind I am sure I will make up for that next week! Til tomorrow…..

IMG_8103 (Large)IMG_8104 (Large)We are taking a short break from kaisercraft Chrismas Wishes to have a look at a few cards I made with MIntay Christmas Wishes collection. This beautiful Christmas collection is very much styled for shabby chic and  vintage card makes.On both cards I have just added a doily and some twine. Nothing else was needed here. I distressed all my edges on the top card and inked with tea Dye ink. I did a little fussy cutting on the lower card but that was it – very simple! til tomorrow….

IMG_8084 (Large)IMG_8085 (Large)IMG_8087 (Large)I can’t say it often enough..this collection of papers and collectables ( kaisercraft Christmas Wishes) is so easy to use, and only requires a ribbon bow or a bit of glitter to finish the cards, as you can see in these most recent cards. The top card is particularly interesting. The background layer was a sheet from the 6′ pad which I ran over with a distress ink pad, then wiped off, and the words appeared as if by magic!! It has a gloss finish. I think all the embellishments on these three cards are from the collectables pack, so no fussy cutting to do, and all background papers were from the 6″ pad. Day off today, I have intentions of practising my freehand watercolouring after I have done some paperwork…til tomorrow….

Continuing on with Kaisercraft Christmas Wishes, I used  some of the matching collectables on the top card, and a few fussy cut elements on the lower two cards. On the top card I have used some Nuvo drops, and of course there has to be a card with a ribbon bow amongst the group somewhere!  Today is the start of daylight savings here, the clocks have gone forward, I have lost an hour and I am running behind in everything! Til tomorrow…..

IMG_8054 (Large)IMG_8073 (Large)IMG_8075 (Large)Kaisercraft Christmas Wishes collection pack, collectables and 6″ pad…Not much else required..a bit of bling, a ribbon bow ….thats it! The bottom card has a sentiment which is a Couture Creations hot Foil stamp which I did on my Go press and Foil machine and then die cut with a Seven paper Dolls die. When i have my Hot foil machine out I tend to do a few at once so that I have a bit of a collection to choose from on my desk. I have to say I do love my foil machine! I have been spreading the word about it , running regular classes at paper Flourish showing all the different things you can do with it, and some of the ladies have given me more ideas and uses too which I am looking forward to investigating. In the meantime, today is my craft and chat gathering and looking forward to catching up with my crafty friends for a relaxing afternoon. We may even get some crafting done! Til tomorrow….

It’s time for Christmas!

IMG_8041 (Large)IMG_8037 (Large)IMG_8072 (Large)Today begins the official start of my Christmas card makes..and I am starting off with cards made with kaisercraft Christmas Wishes paper collection. I purchased the collection pack, collectables and the 6 ” pad, and I have made so many with this collection already. I will ( to alleviate boredom!) put them up 3 at a time and we will have a couple of breaks through out to also see other cards I have been making. My favourite card fold this year has been the double zig zag card so the first few are all in this design. Everything on these cards except for the bling  has come from the listed supplies at the start of the blog,  the collection pack comes with a sticker sheet which has come in handy for the strips across the smaller zig zag fold. I have done a little fussy cutting from some of the papers – the birds and the holly for example. Today is a day off but I am off to have a cortisone injection in my foot…not happy as I have had these before and they hurt!! I am hoping for short time hurt for long time gain! Til tomorrow…..

Not so Shabby…Maja Design Sofiero

Leave a comment

_MG_1780 (Medium) At paper Flourish we have discovered some new designer paper Companies, and Maja Design is one of them. This card and box is made from the Sofiero range. Their papers ( along with Pion designs, Lemoncraft, and Mintay ) are perfect for Shabby style and vintage and I have been having so much fun creating with them all! As I said todays card is made with Maja Designs Sofiero and I have layered papers, with distresses and inked edges onto a cream card base, and added lots and lots of gorgeous flowers along with a couple of die cut leaf flourishes , a punched butterfly, some lace and pearls. Once done I realised it would never survive an envelope so made a box and did a quick bit of decorating on the lid. I have since discovered the benefits of cutting an aperture in the lid and backing with Acetate, which I have shown you on a previous post. That’s it for today…I have a trip to the dentist later but I am going to take my mind off that in the meantime by heading into the craft room! Til tomorrow…..
