Mums Birthday card..

Leave a comment

_MG_4594 (Medium)It is my mums birthday, and this is the card I have made for her, although to be completely open and honest, once this photo was taken I added a couple more flowers ( in white) in the left hand bottom corner!It is all done with my Go Press and Foil machine,including the foiled embossed background. The butterfly is foiled on acetate, and I foiled the sentiment as well. a bit of layering and lace, ribbon and flowers and this one is ready for giving to Mum today. Yesterday was spent  ( after a two hour trip to Bunnings to purchase various garden items for Nathan and house paint for me) in the craft room preparing all of June lessons. Glad they are organised because I really have to concentrate on the craft fair in June now. I am looking forward to an enjoyable afternoon at Paper Flourish ( where our on line shop goes live on Tuesday!) with my craft and chat group. til tomorrow…..

Go Press and Foil Card

Leave a comment

_MG_9424 (Medium)I am back from my cruise and the time has just flown by! We had a very rough crossing to Tasmania,luckily I didn’t suffer from seasickness but many people did. I had full classes though, and met some lovely ladies, and a few gentlemen!Once we arrived in Tasmania the weather was lovely and cool, a welcome change from here in Adelaide. I have come back to the heat and really will be glad when the cooler weather arrives. Todays card is a card i made using lots of elements foiled with my Go Press and Foil machine ( couture creations).There is a bit of embossing with folders from Kaisercraft just using my big shot die machine, then onto the foiling…. The wooden Rose is by Kaisercraft, the Happy Birthday is chipboard by Dusty attic, and both are foiled with deep red foil through the go press.The oval is also foiled and it is a couture creations stamp, specifically made for the foil machine. I finished my card off with a little bling and a ribbon bow. Til tomorrow…..

_MG_4261 (Medium)Todays card is a very simple elegant card made with just a couple of products. The background paper is My Minds Eye In Bloom and I made the rose with my Go Press and foil machine and an Ana Griffin foil stamp, which I then die cut with an oval die. A black lace bow and that is finished!We have a very hot day today, a bit cooler tomorrow though so that will be a craft day for me while I think about some classes for March!

Kaisercraft Mint Wishes number 1…

_MG_2612 (Medium)Quick post this afternoon! I have been busy working this week, so having been a bit lax on the posting front! Today has been another busy day with work this morning, and grocery shopping this afternoon, but I wanted to make a little bit of time to post the last Christmas 2017 series which is Kaisercraft Mint Wishes.Just a few cards in this series , I only bought 4 sheets of paper, including the sticker sheet, because the paper was perfect for my christmas double zig zag cards. For this first card I used the same sheet for both panels, fussy cut some baubles from the second sheet, a strip from the third sheet for the smaller zig zag, and a greeting from the sticker sheet mounted onto scrap white cardstock. It is a hot day here in Adelaide today, so I am off to cool down in the shower, then a seat for a little while under the air conditioner! til tomorrow…..

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….

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! …
