_MG_4649 (Medium)_MG_4651 (Medium)For these next two cards, I used a Paper Roses stitched oval die to cut an aperture in the front of a card base, ( it’s easiest to do this with the patterned paper already attached). I put the resulting oval die cuts ( 1 plain card and 1 patterned paper) aside for another card. Decorated the inside panel with the wood panel patterned paper and a fussy cut butterfly, and the front with some fussy cut flowers and a pearl and ribbon. The second card made use of the plain die cut oval, a fussy cut butterfly , die cut birthday greeting ( in silver foil card) and bling! I had a hugely busy week working, so this weekend will be spent catching up around the house, but I don’t doubt that I will find some time to craft. Til tomorrow…..

Vertical Greetings

Leave a comment

IMG_0038 (Medium)Today’s card was a quick and easy card of layering and stamping. I used a stamp set from Stampin Up called Vertical garden, and stamped the greeting and topiary tree straight onto the cardstock. I stamped the pot again on a scrap of paper, fussy cut and popped it over the top of the green stamped pot with 3d foam squares. I am thinking of doing a similar design for one of my cruise cards…I spent a lovely afternoon yesterday in the craft room, but today we are going out and about for a drive out of the city to see the autumn colours..til tomorrow….

Final Oh so succulent for now..

Leave a comment

IMG_0037 (Medium)For this fianl card in the Stampin Up Oh so Succelent series I used the dies, stamps and papers from the collection.I die cut the flowers from stampin up cardstock, and used some brads that I had which matched the colours perfectly. I smudged some calypso coral ink ( stampin up) on a sponge behind the flowers and tied around the whole panel with a piece of dainty lace. I can’t wait to get back to this collection to try some other colour combinations! Til tomorrow…..

Oh so succulent stamp set..

Leave a comment

IMG_0035 (Medium)For this card I used the Stampin Up Oh so succulent stamp set, stampin onto¬† watercolour card and colouring with inks. Although I have the matching die set i found it quicker and easier to fussy cut the images myself. On another piece of white card I did a watercolour wash in blue, stuck down half a doily, die cut a circle and trimmed it to a pot shape, and then arranged my plants! I trimmed some of the front of the card off, and added a strip of patterned paper on the back part of the card. I truly enjoyed making this card even if I did spend a little bit of time on it! I have been busy this week making orders, 12 at last count, but everything is caught up with now and I am hoping to cut into my new papers ( 2 lots now.. Kaisercraft High tea and sage and grace) in the coming days. til tomorrow….

IMG_0034 (Medium)Over the next couple of posts I will show you what I have been making with my Stampin Up Oh so Succulent stamps, dies and designer papers. This one today uses all Stampin Up supplies, including the sequins and silver thread. The range of dies in this set are lovely,lots of opportunities for lovely built up flowers. Today I am taking a break from preparing for my craft fair and meeting up with some great ladies I converse with in our craft group. It will be a lovely afternoon of crafting and chatting! Til tomorrow…..

Kaisercraft Mademoiselle 7..

Leave a comment

IMG_0025 (Medium)This one is a favourite because it has everything on it that I love…Lace, pleated ribbon ( stampin up), gorgeous prima flowers,flat backed pearls and mini foilage ( kaisercraft Die). The papers are from the Madamoiselle collection ( 6″ pad) and the butterfly is fussy cut from a piece of 12 x 12 paper from the same range. We had a very busy day at work yesterday with the huge clearance sale, so today is all about catching up with some work around here, visiting Mum for her birthday, and then into the craft room to make some card orders! Til tomorrow…..

Kaisercraft Madamoiselle 5 and 6…

Leave a comment

IMG_0023 (Medium)IMG_0024 (Medium)Two cards today made with kaisercraft Madamoiselle papers ( because I may not be back here until Sunday…Big sale to prepare for at Paper Flourish). I love the top card, the butterfly is so beautiful, I fussy cut it from one of the 12 x 12 papers, and added some feelers and bling to it. I embossed some brown cardstock, die cut a fancy flourish circle , and added it all to a yellow cardbase. A few yellow flowers ,and a ribbon bow made this one totally different to all the other cards I made with this collection. The second card is back to vintage, with papers from the 6″ pad, lace, doily, collectables from the matching pack, a punched flower ( built up, shaped and with a bit of bling)punched leaves and of course a ribbon bow! Til tomorrow….
