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 2….

_MG_2611 (Medium) I used a piece of patterned paper from the 6″ pad for the first layer of todays’ card, and a strip of paper left on my desk from yesterdays card ( also from the 6″ pad) for a border across the bottom, with a strip of old fashioned lace peeking out from the top of it. The sentiment is from a piece of the Rose Avenue 12 x 12 sheets and this time I trimmed it a little bigger than the frame, and inked around everything with tea dye distress ink. A die cut flourish, flowers and ribbon were the finishing touches.I am spending the morning at the craft desk putting finishing touches to januarys lessons, and I am  so happy to report that all the cruise cards are cut,die cut embossed and ready to pack!! I am teaching tonight and looking forward to catching up with my ladies! til tomorrow….

Kaisercraft Rose Avenue number 1….

_MG_2599 (Medium)Today we start a new series, Kaisercraft Rose Avenue. This paper collection is so gorgeous! I have made a lot of cards with it already, and have only just now reluctantly packed it away for the moment.We will have a couple of breaks during the posting of this group just in case you guys don’t love it as much as I do! This was one of my first makes….all edges were inked with tea Dye distress ink, and I have used a piece of the 6″ pad and matching collectables. I cut a couple of banner pieces from the script paper, and mounted a sentiment from the pad onto the back of a resin frame. Down in the lower part of the card I mounted one of the sentiments from the pad into the middle of a collectable and added a red ribbon bow. A collectable butterfly and scattering of small flowers to finish! It is very hot here today, 33 C..so everyone in the household is very lethargic, and under the air conditioning ducts is the best place to be! Til tomorrow…..

kaisercraft Mint Wishes number 6

Leave a comment

_MG_2613 (Medium)This is the last of my Kaisercraft mint Wishes cards. The left over of  my 3 sheets of  paper I gave to Mum. This one isn’t a Christmas card, it’s a card for any occasion! I did like the pastel green colour used in this range, and really this was just a corner panel of one of the sheets of paper, with a strip stuck across the bottom and a punched butterfly in the top corner. I highlighted little bits of the design with kindyglitz.A whole new series starts tomorrow! Til tomorrow…..
