Leave a comment

_MG_0656 (Medium) We are back to Kaisercraft Rose Avenue, and on todays card I have used a piece of 12 x 12 paper, and trimmed it with lace. The arched window is a kaisercraft wooden piece which I foiled with the go press and foil machine. A couple of die cut leaves and some flowers and a sentiment from the 6″ pad to finish this simple card! A day off today, so I am going to do some creating while it is still relatively cool…it’s going to be 36 C today so by lunch time it will be a bit too hot to do anything but sit under the air conditioner! Til tomorrow…..

Go Press and Foil chipboard shapes…

Leave a comment

_MG_0632 (Medium)For todays card I die cut a birdcage out of chipboard from a very old sizzix die that I had. I tried foiling normal cardstock but it is just a little too thin and requires lots and lots of shims, so I decided chipboard is the way to go!. I also foiled a kaisercraft bird wooden piece. The butterfly is just punched out of some foil cardstock I had.I die cut memory box lorelia leaf die, and added some flowers and a ribbon bow . The background papers are from kaisercraft Rose Avenue. Today is Nathans birthday so we are off out to celebrate! til tomorrow…..

 

 

 

Nuvo Glimmer Paste!!

2 Comments

_MG_0604 (Medium) A couple of weeks ago we got some new Nuvo Glimmer Paste into the shop, and I couldn’t resist having a bit of a play with it!I used the clear glimmer paste and brushed it through a stencil to create the glittery background on this card. I love Glimmer paste! It is really shiny and glittery, and dries really quickly. I used the gold glimmer paste to paint the chipboard bird, and the background paper on this card is Kaisercraft Rose Avenue. I added flowers, ribbon and lace to finish. I thought I had finished my cruise cards this week but they asked for another class so I have been working on that and today I am off to the craft room to make a couple of birthday cards for upcoming birthdays. Til tomorrow…..

Kaisercraft Rose Avenue number 7

_MG_0622 (Medium)Kaisercraft Rose Avenue papers from the 6″ pad, with the matching collectables,and an acetate butterfly that was found on my desk…I have used a couple of flowers, some lace and ribbon and I die cut a Kaisercraft border die. The green leaves are die cut with a Sue Wilson die and the white leaves are punched with a Stampin Up punch. To give the leaves some movement I used a flower shaper tool ( a tool with a little ball on the end and a new favourite tool for me!) to curl the leaves a little bit. Here we will take a little break from the Kaisercraft Rose Avenue collection and find something else to look at for a few days before coming back to it later …In the craft room I have been jumping from one thing to another, I seem to have lots of projects on the go, and my desk has disappeared under the weight of lots of on-going projects so it is time to organise myself!Til tomorrow…..

Kaisercraft Rose Avenue number 6..

_MG_0615 (Medium)Todays card was actually one we did in one of my classes.The paper is a piece of the 12 x 12 patterned paper from the Kaisercraft Rose Avenue collection, and I just added a strip of lace down the side. I inked around all my edges with tea dye ink, and that was a nice quick card. I have finished work for the week, but I am really busy in the craft room.. I am teaching a fourth class in January so I am working on that, and the cruise I am teaching on in February want another class, making the grand total of classes on the cruise to 6, and with 2 different cards in each class and prep for a maximum of 36 people in each class. That has been a lot of die cutting etc we have prepared!Anyway, I will at least come up with the design for the last class this weekend and then gather all the supplies later! Til tomorrow…..

Go press and foil…chipboard die cuts..

Leave a comment

_MG_0612 (Medium)I have started to experiment a little bit with my Go Press and foil now that I have mastered the basics, and the first thing i wanted to try was die cutting my own chipboard shapes. I have used a thin piece of chipboard here, and used a Kaisercraft dress form die. I used the instruction book and followed the instructions for bought chipboard shapes, and found I just had to add an extra shim – I dint have any waste though, I just ran it through again with some more foil to cover the patches! For the rest of the card i used a Kaisercraft embossing folder, and Kaisercraft Rose Avenue paper ( from a piece of the 12 x 12 paper). Some flowers, lace and ribbon to finish! Til tomorrow….

More inspiration with borders dies….

Leave a comment

_MG_0607 (Medium)Todays card is made with a gatefold design, and then I die cut the edges of the folds with a border die to give the gated effect! A very light decoration on the outside, just some bling and a couple of ribbon bows and flowers, because all the decoration really happened inside the card. The papers are Kaisercraft Rose Avenue from the 12 x 12 paper selection. Today is my get together with some crafty friends, we meet once a month and the time always comes around quickly, so I must get a move along and gather some projects together to work on while we are chatting! Til tomorrow….
