_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….

_MG_1981 (Medium)Todays kaisercraft Golden Grove card is a very very simple one. When i do Thinking of you or Sympathy cards i like to keep them quite clean and simple and for this one I used a kaisercraft frame embossing folder, fussy cut a flower from the specialty sheet of Golden Grove, and the sentiment was from the sticker sheet of the same range. I did ink around the edge of it with Tea Dye distress ink so that it didn’t blend right in to the background layer, and popped it on with foam pads for a bit of height. I am working tonight as I have a class to teach, so this morning I have been grocery shopping, but now I am going to conserve my energy and sit and sort my flowers into colour coded bags..bliss….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….

Kaisercraft Golden Grove..


_MG_9108 (Medium)_MG_9109 (Medium)Continuing on with the Autumn themed challenge,this months kaisercraft release fitted in perfectly, and here are 2 cards I made with that range. I embossed a piece of cardstock with a stampin up embossing folder for the top card, and added a few of the collectables from the range, and sprinkled sequins. For the lower card I fussy cut lots of pears ( my husband loves pears and this will be his birthday card) did some paper layering and again sprinkled a few sequins. I am on track with all the lessons I need to come up with,just have a couple more to do for the cruise, and one to thinbk about for the village ladies, so I might have a break today from the craft room, and catch up on some reading this afternoon..it’s been a lovely morning while I was working but it has become overcast now and think some rain is on it’s way..all good for the garden…til tomorrow…
