Leave a comment

IMG_8105 (Large)IMG_8106 (Large)Here are the other two Mintay Christmas Stories cards I made before I got distracted by other equally beautiful Christmas papers! I did a lot of fussy cutting here, and didn’t add too much more – just a little bling and sparkle! This week has been very busy at work, I haven’t had any home time to craft, and working tomorrow as well so not looking good for weekend crafting either..never mind I am sure I will make up for that next week! Til tomorrow…..

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….

IMG_8084 (Large)IMG_8085 (Large)IMG_8087 (Large)I can’t say it often enough..this collection of papers and collectables ( kaisercraft Christmas Wishes) is so easy to use, and only requires a ribbon bow or a bit of glitter to finish the cards, as you can see in these most recent cards. The top card is particularly interesting. The background layer was a sheet from the 6′ pad which I ran over with a distress ink pad, then wiped off, and the words appeared as if by magic!! It has a gloss finish. I think all the embellishments on these three cards are from the collectables pack, so no fussy cutting to do, and all background papers were from the 6″ pad. Day off today, I have intentions of practising my freehand watercolouring after I have done some paperwork…til tomorrow….

IMG_8054 (Large)IMG_8073 (Large)IMG_8075 (Large)Kaisercraft Christmas Wishes collection pack, collectables and 6″ pad…Not much else required..a bit of bling, a ribbon bow ….thats it! The bottom card has a sentiment which is a Couture Creations hot Foil stamp which I did on my Go press and Foil machine and then die cut with a Seven paper Dolls die. When i have my Hot foil machine out I tend to do a few at once so that I have a bit of a collection to choose from on my desk. I have to say I do love my foil machine! I have been spreading the word about it , running regular classes at paper Flourish showing all the different things you can do with it, and some of the ladies have given me more ideas and uses too which I am looking forward to investigating. In the meantime, today is my craft and chat gathering and looking forward to catching up with my crafty friends for a relaxing afternoon. We may even get some crafting done! Til tomorrow….

It’s time for Christmas!

IMG_8041 (Large)IMG_8037 (Large)IMG_8072 (Large)Today begins the official start of my Christmas card makes..and I am starting off with cards made with kaisercraft Christmas Wishes paper collection. I purchased the collection pack, collectables and the 6 ” pad, and I have made so many with this collection already. I will ( to alleviate boredom!) put them up 3 at a time and we will have a couple of breaks through out to also see other cards I have been making. My favourite card fold this year has been the double zig zag card so the first few are all in this design. Everything on these cards except for the bling  has come from the listed supplies at the start of the blog,  the collection pack comes with a sticker sheet which has come in handy for the strips across the smaller zig zag fold. I have done a little fussy cutting from some of the papers – the birds and the holly for example. Today is a day off but I am off to have a cortisone injection in my foot…not happy as I have had these before and they hurt!! I am hoping for short time hurt for long time gain! Til tomorrow…..

_MG_9857 (Medium)_MG_9858 (Medium)Here we are at the final two Cards i have made with Kaisercraft letters to Santa collection, and what fun i have had with this paper!Both of these cards use the 12 x 12 papers in the collection for the background pieces, and the long stickers on the sticker sheet for the smaller z fold piece. There is a pine cone on the top card which I foiled with chocolate foil and my go press and foil machine, Nuvo drops were also used on both cards for the red berries. a bit of ribbon and bows and these were quick and easy! Til tomorrow….

_MG_9854 (Medium)_MG_9856 (Medium)Both of todays Zig Zag cards use the 6″ pad from Kaisercraft Letters to Santa for the layers, and the long borders on the sticker sheet for the smaller zig zag piece. The top card has an image from the 12 x 12 pull apart piece, and a ribbon bow and the bottom card has some fussy cut postage stamps from a 12 x 12 piece of paper and some gorgeous gathered lace as well! I have had an interesting morning in the craft room experimenting with my Go press and foil machine for a December class. I have discovered that clear acetate foils beautifully, and I have been spraying some foiled die cuts as well, and now to decide which techniques will make the cut into the class! For now though it’s tea time! Til tomorrow….
