Kaisercraft Under the Gum Leaves

Leave a comment

IMG_1682IMG_1683IMG_1693IMG_1694IMG_1695This week I have been making some Christmas cards with an Australian theme using Kaisercraft Under the Gum Leaves collection. I have enjoyed using this pretty paper with lots of cute Australian animals , nice sentiments and pretty background papers. Because I made these when I was at our monthly crafting get together I was forced to keep them very simple ..no bling or ribbon to be found in my bag but truly I like them as is so that is how they will stay. Today is a free day so i will be found in the craft room… til next time….

Assorted Christmas cards..

Leave a comment

_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….

Prima Christmas in the Country part 2…

IMG_1484IMG_1485IMG_1486Here are the other three cards I made with Prima Christmas in the Country. I made these ( and the previous three cards) as a pack for my ladies, so there are six different papers out of the A4 paper pad, a few Prima holly branches ( gorgeous), a couple of metals and some cardstock. They are very simple to put together and I love the vintage feel!This week i have had a break from crafting as I did painting of a different nature and painted nathans bedroom. I am clearly a very messy painter as I am still trying to remove the splatters from my arms, legs and even toes!! Today I am looking forward to resuming my usual seat at my craft desk! til next time….

Prima Christmas in the Country..

IMG_1481IMG_1482IMG_1483We are deep into Christmas card making now and these are cards I made with my second Christmas paper purchase..Prima Christmas in the country. I just used the A4 pad, and did some fussy cutting. With the addition of a holly die, some Prima holly leaves, lace, metals and some matting these cards came together easily. I have moved away from papers now and have started doing some die cutting and embossing to make full use of all my Christmas dies – those ones will be up after next week when we finish with the Prima! Til next time….

Stamperia Pink Christmas

Leave a comment

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…..

Stampin Up Santa’s Workshop..

Leave a comment

_MG_0220 (Medium)_MG_0221 (Medium)_MG_0222 (Medium)Here are the first Christmas cards for this year! I have used a Stampin Up designer paper collection from last year called Santa’s Workshop, I love it because of the fussy cutting potential. I haven’t bought too much Christmas collections yet this year – I am determined to use up the papers I have ( I think I say that every year!), but I have been working with Prima Christmas in the Country and some gorgeous vintage Stamperia papers this week. The top card has a die cut glittery Christmas tree, and the top and lower card have a layer of embossed white cardstock but other than that its all paper and cardstock.- no ribbon , lace or bling to be seen! Til next time….
