Kaisercraft Limelight 5

Leave a comment

_MG_2984 (Medium)_MG_2985 (Medium)There are two photos of the same card today to show more closely the effect I achieved by die cutting a rectangle from the front of my card to create a window to the inside, so the top image is the open card and the lower image is the same card when closed. A lot of the bits and pieces on this card came from the collectables from the kaisercraft limelight collection, but I added a gorgeous pre- made carnation, some punched leaves,rhinestones and a cute little ladybird. Til tomorrow….

Not so Shabby Chic…

Leave a comment

_MG_2986 (Medium) I have been experimenting with Shabby Chic, and although I really still haven’t mastered the whole “rip the paper” technique ( too fond of paper to willfully rip it!)I have been teaching my experiments every month at Paper Flourish.This card is one of two we did a couple of months ago. I will pop up its partner next post.For this one we took a white sheet of cardstock and coloured it with Antique Linen distress oxide ink and stamped over it with a Darkroom Door French script background stamp, distressed the edges and inked with tea dye ink. Cut diagonally and roll those inner edges in and ink again.Add lace, string of pearls,flowers and die cut leaves. Some of the leaves and flowers are coloured with a spray we made with Tumbled glass re-inker ( just a drop in a spray bottle topped up with water) and a small scoop ( just a smidgeon!) of gold mica powder .Give it a good shake before use. Today is going to be a crafty day… I am working on a technique to teach in september and continuing on with cruise card ideas, and of course my mind is starting to drift towards Christmas card ideas! Til tomorrow…..

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 spentĀ  ( 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…

Leave a comment

_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….
