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….

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….

IMG_4060 (Medium)While I was making the stepper cards I made one with Kaisercraft rustic harmony paper, and then made a box to pop it into as it was quite bulky by the time I finished it.Lots of lovely lace trim on the card on the left, and a little more on the box lid on the right. I also used – martha stewart lace doily punch and leaf punch, spellbinders rolled roses and papillion butterflies dies,and Kaisercraft mint pearls.A lovely lazy day today, with a little crafting, and lot of relaxing! til tomorrow….

IMG_3169 (Medium)This is the second card I made using my Tilda Country Escape 12 x 12 paper pad. I just added some prima flowers, ribbon bow and lace to finish. The sentiment on the die cut ( included in the paper pad) was stamped with a stampin up sentiment stamp from the Perfectly penned set, and I inked all around my edges with tea dye distress ink.Today I have been making some cards for my February lesson useing Kaisercrafts new release for January ( Velvet Crush) – it is the most gorgeous paper and I can’t wait to start on my own cards using it!

The carrdstock is Stampin Up – cherry cobbler,baja breeze and crumbcake. I also used an EK success fan border punch.I have lots of new stamps and embossing folders, and dies sitting on my craft table, so tonight I am in the craft room creating! Til tomorrow…
