Kaisercraft High Tea 4..

Leave a comment

_MG_7027 (Medium)continuing on with Kaisercraft High Tea,combined with a paper Rose die. The die is a corner die, but i angled it a little differently on the card to half frame the image I fussy cut from a piece of the 12 x 12 paper.Another piece cut from some 12 x 12 paper from the collection was used as the bottom layer. The sentiment is a kaisercraft die, and I embellished with pearls, a ribbon bow, and a punched butterfly. I have had a busy week, lots of lovely new things coming into the shop, and today is going to be dedicated to creating in the craft room!Til tomorrow…

_MG_4647 (Medium)_MG_4648 (Medium)I only purchased 3 sheets of this collection, and one of the sheets was covered with gorgeous blue butterflies, so immediately I fussy cut those(!)I managed to make a lot of different crafty items with my small purchase,and we will start with the standard cards today. The top card relies heavily on the papers, and I added lace down both sides of the banner and sprinkled rhinestones all over for some shiny bling. The bottom card only has a fussy cut butterfly from the collection, the rest is plain cardstock, with punched corners and a die cut  corner butterfly flourish ( Paper Rose brand). Some glitter a ribbon bow and bling to finish. I am teaching tonight so heading in to work later this afternoon  so for now I am going to head into the craft room, there is some new graphic 45 in there that is calling my name! This week has been full time hours at work, so I probably won’t get back here until Saturday, so I won’t say til tommorrow, I will say Stay safe until the weekend!

die cutting fun!

IMG_0030 (Medium)IMG_0031 (Medium)IMG_0032 (Medium)Hi! So sorry I have been missing for a few days, but this week has been amazingly busy at work, with lots of new products coming in and it was all hands on deck to get them all out on the shelves. I don’t think there was one day when I didn’t come home without purchasing something! Today I have posted 3 cards to make up for it, and these cards are very similar to the cards I am teaching next week. I have used what looks like a lot of dies, but really the list is quite short! here goes… Memory box lorelai leaf, Paper Rose Vases and stems,Flower set one and Leaf scrolls. The embossing folders on two of the cards are Kaisercraft decorative frames embossing folders ( you may recognise these from the last post…I do like them!) The flowers on the bottom card are martha stewart punches. Some of you may also have noticed that I embossed the top part of the vase on the top card with one of the embossing folders. These cards have lots of potential as a favourite design because they can been done in lots of different colourways and I think they have made it onto the short list for my cruise cards. Today is Roast day so thats in the oven, and I am really looking forward to sitting in the craft room, new stuff will have to wait though as I am going to start working on my July class cards …all in all a great day ! til tomorrow….

IMG_7099 (Medium)I have playing around with my dies and mixing them up a bit – normally I like to keep the different companies separated…but I am going to bite the bullet and experiment! The simplest way for me to start now that I can finally use my die cutting machine is with different dies, so on this card  have mixed Paper Rose flower and flourish dies with a memory keepers die and a kaisercraft ( butterfly) die. Pearls for a bit of bling and a stampin up sentiment.This one is going to be adapted to a class in the near future. Roast is in the oven, leek and potato soup on the oven, and now it’s craft time! til tomorrow….
