Prima Lavender Frost 8 and 9

Leave a comment

_MG_0170 (Medium)_MG_0147 (Medium)Here are my final Prima lavender frost cards for now. These two cards use some of the 12 x 12 papers, and the matching flowers from the range. I also added a couple of die cut swirls and a little chipboard piece that was on my craft desk at the time! Tiny scraps of lace came in handy, as did my little handmade bird on the bottom card. I made the little bird with a mold and some “no more gaps” from the hardware shop! This is not the last you will see of my makes with this paper – we will just take a little break from them for now. I have booked my stall for the craft fair on the June long weekend,and so now a lot of my time  will be spent sorting out all my cards ready for sale! Til tomorrow….

Prima lavender frost 6,7 and 8..

Leave a comment

_MG_0085 (Medium)_MG_0091 (Medium)_MG_0100 (Medium)Today we are back to Prima Lavender Frost range of papers, and assorted matching emphemera. The top card is made with papers from the 6″ pad, and a couple of the 3 x 4 journalling cards. I fussy cut the top card and mounted it with foam pads, and cut a round metal finding in half and slid it in under the foam mounted card. The two lower cards were cards I taught in a Paper Flourish class, using the Prima Lavender frost paper and some foiling with the Go Press and Foil machine, which is how I did the gorgeous rose, ( it is a Couture Creations stamp and foil die). We foiled our chipboard happy birthday for the top card. I taught another class this week with this paper range – just love it!! Til tomorrow…

IMG_8018 (Large)IMG_8020 (Large)IMG_8022 (Large)Here are todays cards, still with Pion Days Gone By collection,beautiful soft colours in this range, and I have just added some lace and ribbon with a little fancy die cut borders . These cards didn’t need anything else, they have a lovely vintage feel about them! Its very warm here just now, I have been lazily playing in the craft room, but also enjoying the season and spending most of my free time with family. I have worked a few days in between and we have been busy putting out all our new ranges.. some gorgeous papers coming through from Mintay , Photoplay and Prima – so lots of ideas buzzing around in my head! Meantime, til tomorrow…..

Pion Days Gone By…

_MG_1788 (Medium)_MG_1791 (Medium)_MG_1795 (Medium)Todays cards are made with Pion Designs papers, and I have done a different kind of card base…I guess you could call it a triple fold step down?I have used a 12 x 12 cardstock base, and scored it every 10 cm.( the height is 15 cm for the back panel, and stepped down on the other two panels). The front panel is an extra piece of cardstock, and I cut it with a tab which is attached to the front 10 cm panel and that is all hidden with papers. I have shown you two views of the top card so that you can see what I am talking about! I am officially all organised for the Christmas break, I hope you all have a safe and happy holidays and I will see you all after the festivities!

Helens Not So Shabby…

IMG_8097 (Large)IMG_8099 (Large)IMG_8102 (Large)Here are a few cards I taught in my Not So Shabby class at paper Flourish. I call them Not So Shabby because no matter how hard I try my shabby cards still come out looking quite clean! On the top two cards we did some stitching, layering and distressing, while on the bottom card we painted our frame with prima sparks paint and did some embossing. The weather here is so strange, we have had thunder, rain and lightning this morning, but it is 35C so very hot and humid. Not good weather for anything except sitting under the air con vent! We have picked all the cherries ( 15 Kilos this year) and this morning have started picking the apricots and tomatoes so the garden is very productive just now.. Til tomorrow….

Last three lemoncraft Yuletide today..

2 Comments

_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….

Lemoncraft Yuletide collection, easel cards..

Leave a comment

_MG_9677_MG_9678_MG_9679I made 6 Easel cards with lemoncraft Yuletide collection, I will show the other 3 next time…Most of the extra bits I added were already on my craft desk, The middle card has a frame I made with a mold and gap filler ( from the hardware shop) and painted with prima alchemy paints. the bottom card has as it’s stopper a Christmas tree decoration which I rubbed with some Nuvo copper mousse to give it a bit of shine. other than a bit of ribbon and lace the rest was  various papers from the collection and a little fussy cutting. Today is my day off, and it is really hot here (35C) . Nathan and I have been grocery shopping, it’s all put away and we are exhausted! I doubt today will be a crafty day, maybe a good day to write out my Christmas cards! Til tomorrow….
