Continuing on with Kaisercraft Christmas Wishes, I used  some of the matching collectables on the top card, and a few fussy cut elements on the lower two cards. On the top card I have used some Nuvo drops, and of course there has to be a card with a ribbon bow amongst the group somewhere!  Today is the start of daylight savings here, the clocks have gone forward, I have lost an hour and I am running behind in everything! Til tomorrow…..



Tigerlily and scraps number 2

Leave a comment

For number 2 in my Kaisercraft tigerlily  series, I used some of the butterflies I had fussy cut from one of my 2 sheets, and the other sheet for the background paper. I punched a brder with Martha stewart lace doily die, and added ribbon and lace.The cardstock is Stampin Up pink Pirouette.Today has been a funny day in the craft room. I hit a creative roadblock – possibly because I have spent so much time over the last week coming up with original lesson ideas – so when that happens i set myself challenges, and todays was to make a clean and simple card ( they are called cas cards) which is basicly one layer cards – a big challenge for me not to reach for the lace, ribbon, bling etc. Anyway I did it and as soon as nathan photographs it I will post it to see what you all think! Another thing I did today was to experiment with die cutting material – I had heard you could do it, but didn’t believe it, so tested it myself. And it’s true! Now this opens up  endless possibilities for me as before I became a cardmaker, before I was a cross stitcher, and before I was a tapestry person ( don’t know what they are called), I was a seamstress – it’s true – I have the sewing machine and cupboard full of material to prove it. Now all that remains is to find some time to go through said cupboard and sort out what is going to be used on cards! Til tomorrow…

Amy Tangerine Sketchbook 5

Leave a comment

here is the final of my American craft Amy tangerine  sketchbook series, tomorrow on to something different! Again on this card, I just let the papers talk and layered different patterns of the 12 x 12 sheets, just added a little ribbon, kaisercraft rhinestones and kindyglitz. this was easy paper to work with and I really enjoyed the bright colours for a change of pace from my usual pastel toned favourites. The cardstock I used was from Stampin Up. Tonight I am going to be experimenting with my new kaisercraft paper, and looking forward to doing some creating! Til tomorrow….
