Kaisercraft Letters to Santa 5 and 6..

Leave a comment

_MG_9847 (Medium)_MG_9848 (Medium)Hello There! continuing on with my Kaisercraft Letters to Santa series, the top card uses the 6″ pad, collectables and ribbon, as well as some kindyglitz for shimmer, and some red Nuvo drops for my berries. The lower card is a gatefold design, with papers from the 6″ pad and images from the 12 x 12 pull apart sheet, and a couple of the collectables as well. I like doing gatefold cards for Christmas cards because it’s quick and easy to decorate the inside panel rather than having to stop and prepare an insert ! Quick post this afternoon, I will sign off now and go and prepare some dinner, til tomorrow….

Kaisercraft Christmas Jewel number 3

Leave a comment

_MG_4595 (Medium)Carrying on with my Kaisercraft Christmas Jewel series, this one is really simple, with a piece of the 6″ pad with the deer image printed on it layered onto white cardstock, a sentiment from the matching sticker sheet, a matching collectable and 2 kaisercraft chipboard pieces which I foiled with my Go Press and Foil machine with silver foil. Today is the gathering of our Craft and chat group. So looking forward to catching up with my crafty mates this afternoon, and now I am off to gather some projects to take with me although there is always more chat than craft! Til tomorrow….

Kaisercraft Golden Grove double Zig-Zag cards

Leave a comment

_MG_1975 (Medium)Today is a double Zig Zag fold card, which is really popular just now, and I have fiddled with the measurements so that it fits into a normal C6 envelope.  I have taught a couple of classes using this design and it is next on my list to do a youtube video on how to do it when Nathan and I both have a free minute at the same time!  Meanwhile I decorated these ones with Kaisercraft Golden Grove papers, and the matching sticker sheet. The kaisercraft sticker sheets that they release with their collections are perfect for this design because the sticker strips are exactly the right size for the slimmer zig zag strip on the front of the card. I have put up 2 cards today because I may not get back here til the end of the week.. working full days most of the week, so I will see you all when I get to the end of the week! …

Leave a comment

_MG_1982 (Medium)Todays card is in a similar simple style to yesterdays card, With an embossed layer ( kaisercraft Frame embossing folder) and a fussy cut flower arrangement from a piece of Kaisercraft Golden Grove 12 x 12 sheet. The Thinking of You sentiment is from the 6″ pad of the same collection. Only a couple  more card to go in this collection before we move on to something new… Today I am off to the retirement village to catch up with my ladies and show them a card or two. In the meantime I have a big pot of vegetable soup simmering on the stove for tea, and for now I will head off to the half tidy craft room to get my bag ready for this afternoon.. til tomorrow….

Kaisercraft golden Grove 4 and 5

Leave a comment

_MG_1974 (Medium)_MG_1980 (Medium)Two cards today because I have been missing for a few days, very busy at work putting out lots of new stock, and buying quite a bit of it! We are back to Kaisercraft golden Grove which was one of the ranges they released last month, and is full of lovely rich autumn colours. IThe top card is a card I made for my uncles Birthday, he is a gardener and I thought he would enjoy the imagery and colours reflected in his garden. It’s all 12 x 12 sheets from the range as well as the matching collectables. The lower card also uses pieces from  a 12 x 12 sheet, with a flower and butterflies fussy cut from one of the sheets as well. If you look closely you can see some little rain drops ( or dew drops) which I made using some clear Nuvo. I have been experimenting with Nuvo, it comes in a huge range of colours and is very much like Liquid pearls, but better value, larger colour range and holds the perfect dome shape better…can you tell I am a fan? It comes in metallic ,glitter ( much better than stickles), pearl and clear . I have also been trying to clean up the craft room, but that is not going so well, too many distractions! Til tomorrow….

Go Press and Foil Card

Leave a comment

_MG_1970 (Medium) I have another couple of Go Press and Foil cards to show, so this one today.. I used a kaisercraft embossing folder for the frame ( I have since mastered foiling with my embossing folders so that will be coming soon!) and foiled a todo sentiment stamp made especially for the foiling machine, trimmed it to fit into the frame, and added Green tara flowers,and a foiled chipboard butterfly. the greenery were die cuts on my desk, I have got into the habit when I am diecutting greenery and flourishes to cut a few extra so that I don’t have to stop and dig out dies when I am on a making streak. I have started on my Christmas cards at last, with some lovely new Kaisercraft christmas paper called Christmas Jewel. It has amazing shades of purple and lilac, and silver and I wasn’t going to purchase, but these cards are making themselves,easy paper to work with! til tomorrow….

Kaisercraft Lilac Whisper number 2….

Leave a comment

_MG_1965 (Medium)I used the same kaisercraft ornate die set on this card, with kaisercraft lilac whisper 12 x 12 papers and collectables. The resin frame is one I bought a few of and can’t get any more…shame, they are fantastic, and weigh very little so perfect for cards. Luckily I still have some left so you will see them pop up now and again on my cards. For the rest of the card just some flowers and a ribbon bow. Today I have spent some time experimenting with some new products, I like to keep abreast of the products we sell at the shop so that I can recommend with confidence so today I was playing with Nuvo embossing powder, and I was impressed, once heat embossed it looks like you have triple embossed it is so thick even though it is only one application. I tried it with a script stamp as well to see if you would lose the definition as it sems to be so thick but you can still see the script, so thats good. I feel this product warrants more testing with different colours! I also had some new dies, and some Prima Colour Bloom spray mists I was playing with, and of course in between doing some more Go Press and Foiling on some Christmas chipboard pieces, so lots of bits and pieces on my desk to turn into cards. Great fun! Til tomorrow….
