IMG_8103 (Large)IMG_8104 (Large)We are taking a short break from kaisercraft Chrismas Wishes to have a look at a few cards I made with MIntay Christmas Wishes collection. This beautiful Christmas collection is very much styled for shabby chic and  vintage card makes.On both cards I have just added a doily and some twine. Nothing else was needed here. I distressed all my edges on the top card and inked with tea Dye ink. I did a little fussy cutting on the lower card but that was it – very simple! til tomorrow….

Not so Shabby…Maja Design Sofiero

Leave a comment

_MG_1780 (Medium) At paper Flourish we have discovered some new designer paper Companies, and Maja Design is one of them. This card and box is made from the Sofiero range. Their papers ( along with Pion designs, Lemoncraft, and Mintay ) are perfect for Shabby style and vintage and I have been having so much fun creating with them all! As I said todays card is made with Maja Designs Sofiero and I have layered papers, with distresses and inked edges onto a cream card base, and added lots and lots of gorgeous flowers along with a couple of die cut leaf flourishes , a punched butterfly, some lace and pearls. Once done I realised it would never survive an envelope so made a box and did a quick bit of decorating on the lid. I have since discovered the benefits of cutting an aperture in the lid and backing with Acetate, which I have shown you on a previous post. That’s it for today…I have a trip to the dentist later but I am going to take my mind off that in the meantime by heading into the craft room! Til tomorrow…..

Oops missed one!Couture Creations..

Leave a comment

_MG_9426 (Medium)I thought I had shown all my Couture Creations C’est la Vie makes, but I missed one! I think this is my favourite too! All the papers are from that colection, and distressed and inked around the edges.I found a few birds and butterflies to fussy cut from the papers, and the gate die and flower dies are also from the C’est la Vie range by couture creations. I inked up the die cut flowers with distress inks, and the brad in the centre of the largest flower is a stampin up vintage brad. I inked a little versamark ink across the top of the gate die cut and heat embossed with gold powder to experiment with aging the gate…I will be experimenting more with this idea. Assorted greenery was added, from bits and pieces on my desk from other projects. Thats all for today, Til tomorrow….._MG_9426 (Medium)

Kaisercraft Madamoiselle 5 and 6…

IMG_0023 (Medium)IMG_0024 (Medium)Two cards today made with kaisercraft Madamoiselle papers ( because I may not be back here until Sunday…Big sale to prepare for at Paper Flourish). I love the top card, the butterfly is so beautiful, I fussy cut it from one of the 12 x 12 papers, and added some feelers and bling to it. I embossed some brown cardstock, die cut a fancy flourish circle , and added it all to a yellow cardbase. A few yellow flowers ,and a ribbon bow made this one totally different to all the other cards I made with this collection. The second card is back to vintage, with papers from the 6″ pad, lace, doily, collectables from the matching pack, a punched flower ( built up, shaped and with a bit of bling)punched leaves and of course a ribbon bow! Til tomorrow….

Kaisercraft Madamoiselle number 4…

IMG_0021 (Medium)AS promised, I finally found my way back to Kaisercraft Madamoiselle paper collection! I abandoned this collection before playing properly with it due to Christmas makes and Cruise set up, but the other day I found it again and made some more cards with it. This is the first one, 12 x 12 papers for matting, with some embossing brown cardstock in between the layers. A dress form from the matching collectables pack, a doily layered in there too, some die cut leaves, and flowers and ribbon to finish. I edged around everything with tea dye distress ink, and the sentiment is from the matching 6″ pad.Over the next few weeks I will be going through my papers, having a bit of a clear out, I will take them to the craft fair with me . I always have trouble doing this – as I pull the papers out I see ideas and end up spending all my time crafting and not tidying..so we will see how I go..Til tomorrow….

Truly Vintage with prima tales of you and me

Leave a comment

IMG_0591 (Medium)Today I have indulged my favourite style – Vintage! The paper collection is Prima Tales of you and me, and I have used the same image on both cards.On the left card I fussy cut the image, and did some clean layering, inking the edges with tea dye distress ink as I went.I added a matching chipboard butterfly,a die cut leaf, Prima flowers and ribbon.For the right hand side I went for a more shabby feel – I love this style too, but have real trouble ripping and tearing my precious papers, but still I keep trying! I used the image as it was,die cut a flourish,and added some gold twine, a Prima flower and fussy cut butterflies, ribbon and lace. Today is a glorious winter day – the sun is shining, and this afternoon I am off to the retirement village to show the ladies how to make a bendy card! Til tomorrow….
