Mintay Christmas Stories…3 and 4..

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….

_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!

Kaisercraft Letters to Santa double zig zag cards….

_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….

Kaisercraft Letters to Santa 3 and 4..

_MG_9845 (Medium)_MG_9846 (Medium) Today I have used the 6″ pad on both cards, even the fussy cutting elements, with the exception of the santa image which comes from the pull apart 12 x 12 sheet. I have used the Nuvo drops on all my red berries, and added some gorgeous ribbon and lace on the second card ( which is a little blurry…Nathan must have sneezed!). As usual every thing is inked around the edges with my go-to distress ink which sits on my desk..Tea Dye. All packed and ready to head out to my monthly craft and chat gathering, gee time flies, it just seemed like last week we were all together! til tomorrow….

Prima Sweet peppermint continued..

Leave a comment

img_3316-mediumimg_3318-mediumContinuing on with Prima Sweet peppermint,the top card makes use of the collectables pack which also had the sequins in it, and I slipped a little scrap glitter cardstock between the layers for some twinkle. The bottom card has a Christmas tree die cut with a kaisercraft die – I had just purchased this die and wanted to try it out, and I love it, but sadly it wasn’t too long after this that I injured my shoulder and all further die cutting went out the window, so this die will keep until next christmas! I am visiting Mum and dad today, with my sister as we do every weekend, but today I am taking a box of cardstock and dies and embossing folders and I will ask my mum and sister to do some die cutting for me as I have a large Christmas card order to prepare. Thankfully my Dr. tells me we are aiming for back to normal by christmas day! Til tomorrow….

Kaisercraft Silent night, side steppers

Leave a comment

img_3511-mediumimg_3512-mediumThe other Kaisercraft Christmas collection I purchased was this one – Silent Night. It is the traditional colours of red and Green, and some lovely vintage images.The first two cards I made are these two side stepper cards. I have done a youtube clip for the measurements of my side stepper cards, because I like them to fit into a C6 envelope.You can find the link to my youtube channel on the right hand side of my blog, or just search Helens Card designs in youtube to find it!The Christmas trees on the cards are from the collectables pack from the same range, but before I stuck them onto the card I traced around them onto scrap cardstock and cut them out to use as templates because I really like the size and shape of them So one of the green trees is a collectable and one is cut from patterned paper using my new template!Lace , ribbon and bling for the finishing touches.Til tomorrow…..
