Mintay Springtime…

_MG_0227 (Medium)_MG_0248 (Medium)_MG_0250 (Medium)_MG_0251 (Medium) I made these ones using Mintay Springtime paper collection a little while ago, but got sidetracked with Christmas cards so haven’t posted them until now. All I have used on these ones are the papers ( except for the cut apart greeting) . Just a layer or two of the paper and lots and lots of fussy cutting! I love the colours on these ones! Today i have been trying to clear up my desk a little bit. Even I have to admit there are too many bits and pieces on it so it’s time for a proper tidy. I have filed all the dies back in their place and now I am off to sort out the loose flowers and metals. Hopefully i don’t get distracted!..Til next time….

_MG_0249 (Medium)_MG_0252 (Medium)_MG_0254 (Medium)_MG_0256 (Medium)Todays cards are a few I made with Kaisercraft Rosabella collection. I used the 6″ pad and matching collectables and as you can see I added all sorts of bits and pieces – all of which were laying around on my craft desk at the time – bits of lace, odd die cuts,flowers, ribbon, and my homemade frames – all ended up on these cards! I did enjoy this collection and I have a few more cards to show you next time, I even did a class pack with this one. This week I packed up Christmas crafting, finished packing the cruise classes, and I am all organised to pick a collection and get going – I have so many paper packs that I haven’t really used yet so its going to be fun going through them all! Til next time….

Assorted Christmas cards..

_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_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…..

_MG_0239 (Medium)_MG_0240 (Medium)_MG_0242 (Medium)Three cards today, all made with Kaisercraft greenhouse 6″ paper pad and matching collectables. Nothing else was added to these ones except a tiny bit of bling on the top card, and a gorgeous die cut ( made with Uniquely creative Succulents die) on the middle card. Of course I loved all the fussy cutting potential of these papers!. As my thoughts turn to Christmas cards I am getting itchy fingers to dig out all my xmas dies and stamps, but I am still working on my cruise cards. I have about three weeks of prep to do for them and then look out Christmas here I come!!Til next time…..

Mintay Secret Place 3 and 4….

Leave a comment

_MG_0154 (Medium)_MG_0155 (Medium)As promised I am back with the other two Mintay Secret Place cards that I made.  A lot of fussy cutting on these two!. On the top card I added lace, a metal piece cut in half ( the other half is on the lower card and that is a good trick to extend your stash)and the resin frame is one I made . The second card has a little die cut flourish and a couple of layered banner tags cut from tiny scraps tucked under the metal. Seeing these cards again makes me itch to get this paper out again and start creating, but I am busy today putting some card kits together…Til next time..

_MG_0152 (Medium)_MG_0153 (Medium)Today’s cards are made with a gorgeous paper range by Mintay called Secret Place. I have only made a few cards with this range so far, ( will show two more next time) and they all sold at my recent craft fair. The top card is just layers of the paper, the window is fussy cut and opens up, and I just added a little lace, flowers and greenery. The lower card also has built up layers, and I added a bird I made in my mold, painted it with irridescent medium, the chipboard corners are by Scrapiniec and painted with Prima alchemy paints,and then just a couple of flowers and die cut greenery. We have hyad beautiful weather this week, although it is meant to be the middle of winter so i have spent hours out in the garden, and not many hours at the craft table, but plan to get lots done this week! Til next time….
