Kaisercraft Under the Gum Leaves

Leave a comment

IMG_1682IMG_1683IMG_1693IMG_1694IMG_1695This week I have been making some Christmas cards with an Australian theme using Kaisercraft Under the Gum Leaves collection. I have enjoyed using this pretty paper with lots of cute Australian animals , nice sentiments and pretty background papers. Because I made these when I was at our monthly crafting get together I was forced to keep them very simple ..no bling or ribbon to be found in my bag but truly I like them as is so that is how they will stay. Today is a free day so i will be found in the craft room… til next time….

Assorted Christmas cards..

Leave a comment

_MG_0380 (Medium)_MG_0391 (Medium)_MG_0424 (Medium)These three cards were made with lots of bits and pieces left on my desk after other projects. The top card has a bauble die, embossed background, my Merry Christmas die, and ribbon. The second card is a favourite design of mine – all white, a little embossing,and minimal stamping. The third card has some washi tape, music paper, one layer of a poinsettia die with a holly leaf on top and again the merry christmas die. All of these cards are perfect if you are making quite a few cards the same. Today my job in the craft room is to prepare the inserts for all my Christmas cards… a job I always seem to leave til last! Til next time….

IMG_1484IMG_1485IMG_1486Here are the other three cards I made with Prima Christmas in the Country. I made these ( and the previous three cards) as a pack for my ladies, so there are six different papers out of the A4 paper pad, a few Prima holly branches ( gorgeous), a couple of metals and some cardstock. They are very simple to put together and I love the vintage feel!This week i have had a break from crafting as I did painting of a different nature and painted nathans bedroom. I am clearly a very messy painter as I am still trying to remove the splatters from my arms, legs and even toes!! Today I am looking forward to resuming my usual seat at my craft desk! til next time….

Prima Christmas in the Country..

IMG_1481IMG_1482IMG_1483We are deep into Christmas card making now and these are cards I made with my second Christmas paper purchase..Prima Christmas in the country. I just used the A4 pad, and did some fussy cutting. With the addition of a holly die, some Prima holly leaves, lace, metals and some matting these cards came together easily. I have moved away from papers now and have started doing some die cutting and embossing to make full use of all my Christmas dies – those ones will be up after next week when we finish with the Prima! Til next time….

More Stamperia Pink Christmas…

IMG_1566IMG_1565IMG_1564IMG_1563Stamperia Pink Christmas continued today and this paper lends itself to as much or as little bits and pieces that you want to use. The top card is a gatefold design, so the inside has a bit of decoration as well. I have die cut some circles a little bigger than the paper images for matting . The third card has no extra bits, just the gorgeous paper and on the others I have used all sorts of bits and pieces that were hanging around on my craft table!This week has been wet and windy here so lots of time spent at the craft table..I have taken out all my christmas papers from years gone by and I am determined this year to use some of that instead of all new papers! We will see how that goes…. til next time…

IMG_1569IMG_1568IMG_1567IMG_1570This week I have been making Christmas cards with Stamperia Pink Christmas paper collection. This collection is rich with beautiful vintage images, and I have made 14 cards so far, with more to make!Needless to say I will have to show you these split over a few blogs! I used all sorts of bits and pieces..resin frames, lace, metals, flowers and ribbon but I also made some with no extra bits at all as shown in the top card. The third card is a gatefold card so is decorated inside as well. I can also report that I have finally finished preparing the cruise cards and can now concentrate fully on Christmas cards! I will be back soon to show you some more Stamperia cards, Til next time…..

Stampin Up Santa’s Workshop..

_MG_0220 (Medium)_MG_0221 (Medium)_MG_0222 (Medium)Here are the first Christmas cards for this year! I have used a Stampin Up designer paper collection from last year called Santa’s Workshop, I love it because of the fussy cutting potential. I haven’t bought too much Christmas collections yet this year – I am determined to use up the papers I have ( I think I say that every year!), but I have been working with Prima Christmas in the Country and some gorgeous vintage Stamperia papers this week. The top card has a die cut glittery Christmas tree, and the top and lower card have a layer of embossed white cardstock but other than that its all paper and cardstock.- no ribbon , lace or bling to be seen! Til next time….
