Leave a comment

IMG_7085 (Medium) I can’t promise this card ( made with kaisercraft Cherry Tree Lane 6″paper pad) won’t be the last, but it is for quite a while!The image in the centre is from the 12 x 12 cut apart sheet from the same collection, and I trimmed the sides with lace, and cut a banner shape to frame it. A light pink ribbon bow to finish. Yesterday i bought some new Kaisercraft High Tea papers, so beautiful, and I can’t wait to start making with it but first this week I have to make some wedding cards to fill my box, The June long weekend craft fair is not far away, and I have to start preparing for it! Til tomorrow….

img_2735-mediumMost of the previous cards made with this collection ( Kaisercraft Cherry Tree Lane) were made with the blue tones of paper, now we have a few made with the green tones. The cardstock is Stampin Up, as is the pleated ribbon, and the background paper is from the 6″ pad. The focus is on a card from the pull apart sheet, and I added a prima and green tara flower and some punched leaves.Oh, and some lace! I am officially on holidays, and have spent today stewing pears, we have an abundance of them so the freezer will be quite full. Pear crumble all winter! Til tomorrow…..

Kaisercraft Silent night, side steppers

Leave a comment

img_3511-mediumimg_3512-mediumThe other Kaisercraft Christmas collection I purchased was this one – Silent Night. It is the traditional colours of red and Green, and some lovely vintage images.The first two cards I made are these two side stepper cards. I have done a youtube clip for the measurements of my side stepper cards, because I like them to fit into a C6 envelope.You can find the link to my youtube channel on the right hand side of my blog, or just search Helens Card designs in youtube to find it!The Christmas trees on the cards are from the collectables pack from the same range, but before I stuck them onto the card I traced around them onto scrap cardstock and cut them out to use as templates because I really like the size and shape of them So one of the green trees is a collectable and one is cut from patterned paper using my new template!Lace , ribbon and bling for the finishing touches.Til tomorrow…..

img_9349-mediumThis is the very last of my October Afternoon Make it Berry collection. I have loved revisiting this collection,butĀ  what is left of it has gone into the surplus to requirements bag, as I can’t keep everything.My craft room is becoming a fire hazard! I made this card as a DL size card ( cardstock 21 x 21 cm and folded in half) to accommodate the tall reindeer image. A bit of offset layering, lace and ribbon and this one is ready to go! A new series tomorrow, Til then ….

I loved making this card series as I got to dig through forgotten boxes of bits and pieces to decorate them!I have a new plan – put one of those forgotten boxes on my desk and use them up that way!I have been busy today in the craft room fulfilling 3 orders, and working on a class which is coming together beautifully..til tomorrow…..

Stampin Up Birthday Blooms stamp

Leave a comment

IMG_5635 (Medium)Todays card is a mix of embossing and stamping and colouring. The embossing folder I used on the background Is a kaisercraft Roses embossing folder, and I sprinkled a few rhinestones over it. The main image is a stampin up stamp from their Birthday Blooms stamp set and I coloured it with copics and fussy cut it out, attaching to the front of the card with 3d foam pads. A little ribbon and lace and this card is a very feminine card indeed! This morning I have been busy creating in the kitchen, an apple crumble for later, a pasta bake for a quick meal in the next couple of days, and some spinach soup for lunch today made with spinach from the garden. I feel i have earned some time in the craft room! til tomorrow….
