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…..

 

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…..

_MG_1817 (Medium)_MG_1819 (Medium)I made these two shabby chic style cards with an old Prima range that I found in the craft room,lots of layering of the matching empheria and a die cut gate…I think that was a stampin Up die, a few flowers and some of the frames and swirls that I made with silicone molds and No More Gaps ( from the local hardware shop!) I painted them with some Prima Alchemy paints. A day off today, so i have done my grocery shopping, planned what we are having for tea, and now time to think about some November lessons! Til tomorrow…..

Stamperia letters and flowers paper…

_MG_1754 (Medium)Todays card showcases a new range of papers to paper Flourish which I just couldnt resist,and something else I have been doing – making my own embellishments! First the paper…it is by a company called Stamperia and this range is called letters and flowers. I fussy cut the dragon from a piece of the paper, and the tag was printed on the paper so just had to fussy cut that out too. I added a little gorgeous lace,, but the main item on this card is the window.. I made it!! I know! I have a few silicone molds,and this is one of them , I used No More Gaps… you know those long tubes of gap filler from the hardware shop – one of those –  and filled my mold, smoothed it with an old credit card and left it to dry for two days. It came out of the mold as you see it here although I have had good fun painting some of my frames with Prima sparks paint . It is a really cheap way of making frames and It is great fun. I didnt buy the most expensive brand, my tube cost just $2-25, and I have made so many with that one tube. I am off now to paint a few more ready for cards so you will see more as i use them… Til tomorrow….

Thinking of you..

_MG_2982 (Medium) I made a card with not a bit of patterned paper which is very rare for me! I die cut a large rectangle out of the front of my card, and most of the decorating happened on the card i stuck inside the card. I die cut a tree, and punched a few extra branches in a different colour ( which I also added to the ground around the bench). The bench is a stampin up stamp which I heat embossed in gold. I added a cute little ladybug to the bench. and die cut the Thinking of you words. Well the man is still up on the roof stomping about up there, he has had to stop and start as the rain has been affecting his working but we never complain about rain so he just works around it! I have a late start for work today, but i must go and get organised…til tomorrow…..

_MG_3003 (Medium)Sorry I have been missing for a few days, I have been busy with work, creating classes and then the usual running of the household!As we speak there is a man on my roof restoring it, it is old and tired and had developed leaks….something some of us can commiserate with !The Two cards today are made with kaisercraft Miss Betty collection, I keep promising to make a you tube clip showing how to do this fold, and it will get done, Nathan has had a few problems with the cameras, but I think those kinks may be fixed so we shall see.. The sticker sheet that comes with the kaisercraft collections is perfect for doing these cards, they usually have long borders on them that I never know what to do with but they fit perfectly along the thinner zig zag strip. In other news I have taken the first step towards starting my Christmas cards.. I have been out to the shed and collected some christmas papers! I will take it over to mum and dads place today and sit and chat and craft with them.. til tomorrow…._MG_2974 (Medium)
