Go Press and Foil cards..

2 Comments

_mg_8334 (medium)_mg_8335 (medium)Todays two cards highlight the Go Press and Foil machine, which I used to foil the Happy Birthday. I did these two cards for a class that I taught,  and incorporated some die cutting with Seven paper Doll dies. On the top card I cut up one of the filigreed die cut squares to create fancy borders. Glitter cardstock was used for the leave and flourish dies, and then just added some pretty flowers. I have been missing from here this week as My dad is in hospital and I have been busy visiting him, and working in between. He is still in hospital, having many tests, so my busy life is ongoing, I will get back here as often as time permits , Til then……

Lemoncraft Yuletide paper collection..

Leave a comment

_MG_8323 (Medium)_MG_8336 (Medium)Today we are embracing vintage with this collection from Lemoncraft called Yuletide. I have added a few interesting bits and pieces to these cards – The top card has a flourish i made with a mold and some painters caulk, and then painted with prima Alchemy paints,. I also foiled a small chipboard piece, and added some gold thread and a pearl and all my edges were inked with Tea dye distress ink. The bottom card has more of the molds I made and painted gold, a ribbon and a bit of a die cut I had lying on my desk! I have just finished working a very long two weeks with just a couple of days off, so not much time for crafting as I have been catching up on housework today, but things should get back to normal now..and it’s time for me to be thinking of my January lessons – wow the new year already! til tomorrow….

_MG_8343 (Medium)_MG_8344 (Medium)_MG_8345 (Medium)Here are some more fun Christmas cards I have made with Stampin Up Santas workshop collection. I have added the bare minimum of embellishing to this group of cards, the papers are already embossed and / or glittered, and I have just fussy cut extra layers for some 3 D effects.  I have finished my Christmas makes for this year,( but have so many more to show you ) and normally at this stage I pack up all the Christmas for next year, but this paper is staying out and I will continue to make cards with it throughout the year, it is so much fun to work with! Til tomorrow……

Stampin Up Santas Workshop

Leave a comment

_MG_8319 (Medium)_MG_8320 (Medium)I had great fun creating with this collection of papers and matching card fronts from stampin Up ( Santas Workshop)..It was a change from the vintage and traditional papers that I have been working with. There were lots of images  to fussy cut so I had fun  building layers of the same image for a bit of dimension,  and I really only had to add a little ribbon for texture as some of the papers were already embossed and glittered. tomorrow I will show you the other three cards I made before I had to pack up to create classes. I will get back to it though, I am going to be much more organised next year for Christmas – I think I will just keep creating all year ! Til tomorrow….

IMG_8105 (Large)IMG_8106 (Large)Here are the other two Mintay Christmas Stories cards I made before I got distracted by other equally beautiful Christmas papers! I did a lot of fussy cutting here, and didn’t add too much more – just a little bling and sparkle! This week has been very busy at work, I haven’t had any home time to craft, and working tomorrow as well so not looking good for weekend crafting either..never mind I am sure I will make up for that next week! Til tomorrow…..
