Last three lemoncraft Yuletide today..

2 Comments

_MG_9680_MG_9682_MG_9684Today we say farewell to my Lemoncraft Paper makes, and these three are made in the same way as the cards on the previous post. I have used a lot of the molds that I made on these cards, and I painted them with prima alchemy paints. I have been busy finishing off my January classes, and they are done now so I have a little window of time to do some ” me ” crafting, and I am thinking wedding cards,I have some new stamps and dies to try out  although you know these plans could go out the window when I actually sit down to craft! Til tomorrow….

_MG_8340Sorry I have been missing , but we had a computer hiccup here this week,and thank goodness it is fixed now with no loss of files! Today we are continuing on with Lemoncraft yuletide collection,which is perfect for vintage style cards.I did a bit of layering with bits of offcuts on these two, and added a ribbon to the left and a ribbon and a flourish that I made with a silicone mold and gap filler (!) and painted with prima alchemy paint.meanwhile i have finished my January lessons and have a couple of new stamp sets on my desk to play with. I have to make two male birthday cards and one of the stamp sets is perfect for both boys so that will be first on the agenda! Til tomorrow…..

A box for the book cards..

Leave a comment

IMG_0762 In the previous post I explained how I made my book cards. After I had made them I realised they needed boxes to put them in so I made a box with a lid , but then realised that the lid needed decorating too, which all adds to the time and cost of making them so for this third book I made the box and cut a huge part of the lid away and backed it with a sheet of acetate so that you can see the box inside and it eliminates the need for decoration. Finally I am happy with the process and ready to make many more! we are going to a wedding in a couple of months so the next book card I make will be a wedding design. Til tomorrow…

Kaisercraft Limelight 5

Leave a comment

_MG_2984 (Medium)_MG_2985 (Medium)There are two photos of the same card today to show more closely the effect I achieved by die cutting a rectangle from the front of my card to create a window to the inside, so the top image is the open card and the lower image is the same card when closed. A lot of the bits and pieces on this card came from the collectables from the kaisercraft limelight collection, but I added a gorgeous pre- made carnation, some punched leaves,rhinestones and a cute little ladybird. Til tomorrow….

Neat and Tangled Unicorn stamp

_MG_4623 (Medium)_MG_4625 (Medium) I couldn’t resist this cute little Unicorn stamp set by Neat and Tangled. After stamping i coloured with Copic markers, and added flowers and ribbon . The background paper is a from a 6″ pad by lawn fawn. My Puppy Daisy is recovering well from her operation yesterday, she was very sad and sorry for herself last night but seems to have forgotten all about it today and now the challenge is to stop her from jumping up on everything until the wound heals.Meanwhile I have been busy in the kitchen this morning making a big pot of vegetable soup for tea as it is so cold here, and also some lemon butter spread to use up some of our lemon crop. Til tomorrow….

Kaisercraft Miss betty 2..(Shabby chic)

Leave a comment

_MG_9440 (Medium)The second card made with kaisercraft Miss Betty collection! Here I have used some of the 12 x 12 sheets, and the matching collectables. The die cut fence is a couture creations die and I inked around all my distressed edges with tea dye ink and added a ribbon bow and little flower. This week has been hugely busy at work putting out all the new pre orders and I must admit I have a few new things to play and experiment with including the new Go Press and foil  foil,emboss and cut dies ( which do all that in one step!). They are on my dining table ready to go in about 5 minutes!! til tomorrow….

My Minds Eye In Bloom.

Leave a comment

_MG_4266 (Medium) A natural progression from yesterdays card where I had used My Minds Eye In Bloom patterned paper as the background layer is today’s card which uses all My Minds Eye In Bloom paper. I die cut a gold foil heart, and added black lace and gold ribbon. Everything else is from the paper collection. Yesterday was very productive day in the craft room. I planned out my march classes, and started to experiment with some irridescent medium and stencils to make my own background layers that have a bit of a sheen.This is a work in progress but will share when i have something to show you! Til tomorrow….
