A Christmas village..

_MG_9839 (Medium) We are going to take a small pause in the Kaisercraft letters to Santa series today so that I can show you a card I made with Stampin Up Hometown Greetings Die set and a piece of patterned paper from their Christmas Around the the World designer series paper pack. I die cut the houses from  gold and white glitter cardstock, and baqcked the houses with some shiny pieces of an acetate type piece.. I have no idea what it was, Mum handed it to me over the table, unsure of where she had got it, but it worked a treat as windows. Next time I do these, I will use some plain acetate as I have no more of the scrap mum gave me, and I will try colouring the clear acetate with Copic markers to see if I can get the same light shining through technique. The trees and star are Kaisercraft wooden pieces, foiled with my Go Press and Foil machine. Our clocks jumped forward an hour for daylight saving, and I have spent all morning chasing my tail, wondering where the day is going…Time is truly flying! Til tomorrow…..

Kaisercraft Letters to Santa 5 and 6..

Leave a comment

_MG_9847 (Medium)_MG_9848 (Medium)Hello There! continuing on with my Kaisercraft Letters to Santa series, the top card uses the 6″ pad, collectables and ribbon, as well as some kindyglitz for shimmer, and some red Nuvo drops for my berries. The lower card is a gatefold design, with papers from the 6″ pad and images from the 12 x 12 pull apart sheet, and a couple of the collectables as well. I like doing gatefold cards for Christmas cards because it’s quick and easy to decorate the inside panel rather than having to stop and prepare an insert ! Quick post this afternoon, I will sign off now and go and prepare some dinner, til tomorrow….

Kaisercraft Letters to Santa 1 and 2…

_MG_9843 (Medium)_MG_9844 (Medium)After a short break we are back to Christmas Cards! This series is a big one so i am going to post these ones 2 at a time. The paper collection is Kaisercraft Letters to santa, and I purchased the 6’pad, 12 x 12 papers and the collectables so on most of these cards you will see a bit of all these elements.  The top card is 6″ pad on the base, collectables in the corners and the image is  from a piece of 12 x 12 paper fussy cut and inked around the edges with tea dye distress ink. I foiled a piece of kaisercraft wooden flourish with green foil and added red berries with some Nuvo drops. I used the same products on the second card with the addition of ribbon and lace. We have had some lovely weather here this week, so I have spent a little bit of time sitting in the garden enjoying the sun on my face, but today I am going to do some seriuos die cutting of flowers and leaves because I want to master the art of flower shaping..I think that is something I could do in the evening while watching tv, and it will put my many flower dies to good use too…Til tomorrow….

Kaisercraft Christmas jewel number 5

_MG_4597 (Medium)Todays card is interesting because it uses some of the strips of offcuts from papers from the 6″ pad used on other cards. A great way to use up scraps. The decoration is from the kaisercraft christmas Jewel collection, and the greeting is from the sticker sheet and layered onto more scrap paper. I love the colours of this papr collection, and today we got in the september Kaisercraft releases which are both Christmas paper collections and I love the red/green vintage collection so that will be my buy for this month! Til tomorrow….

Kaisercraft Christmas Jewel number 3

_MG_4595 (Medium)Carrying on with my Kaisercraft Christmas Jewel series, this one is really simple, with a piece of the 6″ pad with the deer image printed on it layered onto white cardstock, a sentiment from the matching sticker sheet, a matching collectable and 2 kaisercraft chipboard pieces which I foiled with my Go Press and Foil machine with silver foil. Today is the gathering of our Craft and chat group. So looking forward to catching up with my crafty mates this afternoon, and now I am off to gather some projects to take with me although there is always more chat than craft! Til tomorrow….

This years first Christmas card….

_MG_9104 (Medium)Today is my Craft and Chat group get together, and the challenge set for todays get together was Christmas in July so I quickly whipped up a couple of cards in between class and cruise preparations to take with me . Here is the first one. The bird was a chipboard piece I found in the bottom of a drawer when I was looking for chipboard to try with my new Go Press and foil ( it foiled beautifully).I used  a whole layer of glitter cardstock on the background, and die cut a Paper Rose die in gold foil for the sentiment. The Holly is a kaisercraft die, and the stitched oval is a Paper Rose die. Little kaisercraft rhinestones for the holly berries. I have come up with all the card ideas needed for the cruise, now all that is left is to prepare all the kits. That will take quite some time with a lot of die cutting , embossing, and layers to cut.For now though I am off to gather some supplies to take with me to my craft group get together. Til tomorrow….

img_8022-mediumimg_8025-mediumHere are the last two Christmas cards for this year!The top card is made with Stampin Up supplies – Star of light stamp set ( I gold embossed the big swirl stamp),and starlight dies, with gold cord, a couple of gold sequins and a snowflake bling ( from Paper Flourish. The embossing folder is last years release from Stampin up.The bottom card was a bit of an experiment, I cut the front of the card quite drastically, and die cut a couple of circles which I stuck to the right hand side of the base card.You can’t see the bits that i stuck because I covered the back of the base card with some white cardstock ( which I stamped a greeting on). The paper is stampin up, and I punched christmas tres, stuck them on white cardstock and fussy cut out. Til tomorrow…
