Last three lemoncraft Yuletide today..


_MG_9680_MG_9682_MG_9684Today we say farewell to my Lemoncraft Paper makes, and these three are made in the same way as the cards on the previous post. I have used a lot of the molds that I made on these cards, and I painted them with prima alchemy paints. I have been busy finishing off my January classes, and they are done now so I have a little window of time to do some ” me ” crafting, and I am thinking wedding cards,I have some new stamps and dies to try out  although you know these plans could go out the window when I actually sit down to craft! Til tomorrow….

Pink paisley London market papers


A very quick post tonight as I should be cooking tea – This is one of my favourite cards because I love the vintage feel of it. The paper is pink Paisley London market, and the crown is from a packet of matching emphemera.Cardstock is stampin up crumbcake and very vanilla, as is the folded ribbon and the sentiment, and I added lace flowers and bling. There is an interesting border punch used on this card and I can’t for the life of me remember where I punched this out – I know I don’t own it, but wish I did!As soon as I have cooked tea I am off into the craft room to see if it’s one of my dies, and if so put it in a prominent place to be used again and again!Til tomorrow….

Some stamping fun..

Leave a comment

Now and again when I have a bit of time I like to get out all my stamps and inks and just see what happens and this is the result from the other day. I used stampin Up cardstock – early espresso, blushing bride and very vanilla, and some lace and ribbon, then went to town with the stamps from my Established Elegance set ( Stampin Up)I think I used all the stamps in this set – oh except for the typewriter stamp.. that was used on another card which I will show tomorrow. The papers are from Stampin Up Attic boutique.Very wet and cold day here in Adelaide. Its a heater night tonight! Til tomorrow….

Vintage Anniversary

Leave a comment

This is a weddding anniversary card that I made for my market box. I used my new Cheery Lyn Polynesian Sails Oval die, which I like, but found I had to use my metal plate with it to get the delicate cuts, although that could be my cuttlebug, as it is the first major item I bought when I started cardmaking, and I use it on almost every card I make and I think the rollers are a bit loose. The papers I used here are from Melissa Francis C’est La Vie range and I just added a little ribbon and lace. I bent over yesterday, and my back decided that it liked that position and I couldn’t straighten up so I have been in a fair bit of pain, and no cardmaking has been happening. I have given myself a stern talking to, and it is a little better so I might be able to sit in the card room tonight.. Til tomorrow….

New dies to paly with…

Leave a comment

I saw these two dies – memory box rounded fence and wrought iron gate, and couldn’t resist them! I have teamed them with a couple of spellbinders dies – Picot edge cirle and a label die, and a Stampin Up sentiment stamp from the perfectly penned set. I just added some lace, one of my hand crocheted doilies, and a bought flower although next time I will make my own! The paper is from a 6″ paper pad by melissa francis called Cest La vie. I sponged all the edges with Tim Holtz spun Sugar ink. No cardmaking tonight as its shopping night – Til tomorrow….

Vintage card with dress form die




IThe vintage style is a favourite of mine and here I have combined it with my new spellbinders dress form die. The paper is Melissa Francis C’est La Vie and I also used my cuttlebug to cut a spellbinders labels 14 die, and memory box dies – Amana circle and meadow leaf. I crocheted the doily ( I am no crocheter so don’t look too closely!) and I added a flower and beaded hat pin to finish.I covered the dress form with a little curtain remnant, and added some liquid pearls for a necklace.I am hoping to spend a little time in the craft room tonight, it has been a busy weekend with not much crafting done, so the ideas are backing up!Til tomorrow….
