Another Mens card

Leave a comment

img_3294-mediumI made this card for an order..I die cut an oval and using the waste part I inked through it onto the base card with green and blue inks. I stamped a stampin up cricket set onto various scraps of cardstock and fussy cut the images, and stuck them onto the base card . I kept it all very simple as that is what my customer wanted, and I really like this one!Back to work this week after my holidays, and taking things very easy with my shoulder! til tomorrow….

New mens card!

Leave a comment

img_3292-medium I have a couple of Mens cards to show, so today we will start off with the side stepper card I made with some new dies from a new company, Paper rose. They are a South Australian company, and I couldn’t wait to try out the tool dies and the pegboard die. They cut beautifully, and I will be adding some more of their dies to my growing collection! The instruction for my side stepper card is on my You tube channel, you can find the link on the right hand side of my blog.The sentiment is a kaisercraft die, and the rest is just strips of cardstock to mimic the tool drawers. Til tomorrow….

Kaisercraft Barber Shoppe 3 and 4

IMG_6556IMG_6557Here are the other two cards I made with Kaisercraft Barber Shoppe 6″ paper pad. I used a kaisercraft die on the top card,with a couple of the pop outs from the back of the pad, and for the bottom card I used a sizzix hats and moustaches die with a couple of wobbly eyes. Today is the start of Christmas cards!! I have spent the morning going through my boxes finding all my dies,embossing folders, and stamps with a christmas theme, but i have been distracted because I can’t find two new kaisercraft dies..I had them recently because I used them on the next group of cards I am showing you, but they have disappeared! I have decided to stop looking and they will show up when I least expect it..That’s the theory anyway! Til tomorrow….

Kaisercraft Barber Shoppe 1 and 2,

IMG_6554IMG_6555Kaisercraft Barber Shoppe today, I only bought the 6″ pad and one 12 x 12 sheet for fussy cutting and had intended these cards for Fathers day cards, but decided I had enough of those, so these ones turned into birthday cards! The top card is lots of fussy cutting and the addition of a Tim Holtz spinner. The bottom card has a strip of hessian and a really old brad from the bottom of my bits drawer. Otherwise everything on this one is from the 6″ pad. A day off today, shopping done and I am off to the craft room . Til tomorrow….

IMG_2948 (Medium)IMG_2951 (Medium)IMG_2952 (Medium)Three cards today to finish off my Authentique devoted series which got interrupted due to more pressing christmas cards! I had a bit of fun with these cards and used plenty of lace, ribbon, hessian, bling and even a button. I did go to the specialist yesterday, and found out I have torn a ligament in the back of my knee, so operation on Thursday and after that I may be missing from here for a few days while I recuperate, but until then…til tomorrow…..

IMG_0271 (Medium)This paper collection is unique because it is a collaboration between two paper houses – echo park and graphic 45.I have made quite a few cards from this paper, but this is the only one that made it to be photographed – the others all sold before the camera came out!I have layered a couple of pieces, wrapped one layer in twine, and added craftworks candii to the corners. The sentiment stamp is stampin up. I must see what i have left of this paper and make some more! til tomorrow…..

Kazzazz train stamp

IMG_5859 (Medium)keeping with the male themed stamped cards, tonights cards use a stamp I purchased from Kazzazz.I used stampin up cardstock – cherry cobbler, crumbcake and not quite navy, and the little bit of patterned paper is Prima Craftsman. The card on the right makes use of the negative cardstock left over after I had die cut the labels on the left card. ( dies are from stampin up – sizzix decorative labels.) I just had to add a little bakers twine and prima trim to finish these ones! til tomorrow….
