A little bit vintage….

Leave a comment

IMG_0026 (Medium)There is quite a bit happening on todays card so we will get right into it! Everything has the edges sponged with Tea Dye distress ink pad. The background layer, bracket shape, and sentiments are from Kaisercraft Madamoiselle 6″ pad, and the layer on top is from the cut apart 12 x 12 paper from the same range. On this piece I used a stampin up fancy corner punch . The foilage is a kaisercraft die, the flowers are from Prima and Green tara,and I also added flat backed pearls, a ribbon bow, fussy cut butterfly ( from the same paper range) and kindyglitz. Til tomorrow…..

img_3319-mediumimg_3320-mediumWe continue on with my series of cards made with Prima Sweet peppermint, and I enjoyed the chance to rummage around in my lace stash to make these ones!The gold tape I used is by kaisercraft,and I distressed edges and inked with Tea dye distress ink. My wonderful mum and sister did a lot of die cutting for me yesterday so that I could fulfill an order, so I have been enjoying the craft room today, in the peace and quiet as everyone else is off doing their own thing! Til tomorrow…..

Leave a comment

img_3513-mediumimg_3516-mediumThe next 2 cards in my Kaisercraft Silent night series.The top cadr uses papers from the paper pad,and the bottom card has layers using 12 x 12 papers and both cards rely heavily on the images from the collectables pack. Everything is inked with tea dye distress ink and some bows to finish for texture.I am having a very busy week at work, but hope to get into the craft room for an hour this afternoon just for a litle relaxation! til tomorrow….

Very last of Make it Berry..

Leave a comment

img_9349-mediumThis is the very last of my October Afternoon Make it Berry collection. I have loved revisiting this collection,but  what is left of it has gone into the surplus to requirements bag, as I can’t keep everything.My craft room is becoming a fire hazard! I made this card as a DL size card ( cardstock 21 x 21 cm and folded in half) to accommodate the tall reindeer image. A bit of offset layering, lace and ribbon and this one is ready to go! A new series tomorrow, Til then ….

October Afternoon christmas.

Leave a comment

img_9343-mediumimg_9347-mediumI have so much christmas paper. Quite often it happens that I buy the collection but I have already made my Christmas cards, so I keep it for next year,but new paper comes out that I fall in love with.So this year is christmas paper culling time! Of course once I take it out ideas come…this is what happened with this paper. it is October Afternoon Make it Berry and it must be at least three years old.I have made a few cards, and the rest is in a bag ready to move on. I used a stampin up corner punch and ribbon on the top card, and the bottom card just has pretty images layered onto the base paper, and a fussy cut poinsetta decorated with kindyglitz. I taught a full class this morning – yes christmas cards, and I thoroughly enjoyed catching up with everyone! Til tomorrow….

img_9342-mediumOops! I was all ready to move on to some christmas cards when I found one more card made with Julie Nutting Belle Vie paper (I only purchased 2 papers from this collection)This actually was the last one I made using up the last of the paper.I die cut a scalloped rectangle , and 2 butterflies,inked everything,and added the last of my bead string ( I have bought some more – Kaisercraft make it now, but the length that I have been using came off the dress of a vintage doll)ribbon,bow and sequins to decorate.Early finish from work today, so a bit of time to put my feet up! til tomorrow….
