Christmas Tree

Hello papercrafters

I love the new collection from Couture Creations 'It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas', and with Christmas fast approaching I though I would create a little card for you, and of course I have made a video to show you how, just in case you want to play too! The collection is so very Christmassy, the colours and designs could be nothing else, just perfect!

My card features a layered and dimensional Christmas tree which is easy to create and adds so much fun and dimension to the card.

The background papers are so traditional and even a quick glance at the card shouts out 'Christmas! The addition of some sparkle and glitter add to the festive fun.

The Video I have made a video that will show you step by step how I have made this card. I hope you enjoy it. Please don't forget to hit the subscribe button, found on the bottom right corner of my video, this way you will not miss a thing and it's free!

Shabby Chic Layout

I have had so much fun with a new 'Shabby Chic' kit that I recently bought on line! The papers and embellishments are so beautiful, they are a wonderful weight and the colours are "oh so pretty!".

So first I made this shabby chic layout.

Aren't the papers lovely!
Hope you like it!

2017/18 Kaisercraft Design Team Application

Hi papercrafters!

I was super excited to get into the second round for the Kaisercraft Design Team for 2027/2018.
I was sent the stunning Lilac Whispers collection to create an entry. As always with Kaisercraft the papers are stunning, all I needed to do was to create something special.
It's been crazy around my household and business so time was limited, but I decided I would create a Four Fold Card with Pop Out Cube.
Despite time pressures, I wanted to create something special and the pop out cube always gets a 'WOW' and the four fold card would showcase the stunning paper.
I love junk mail; so often there is inspiration and a few years ago a retail company sent me a pop out cube ...... I loved it! I played, adapted and re-sized to create a version great for cardmaking and have taught it in many classes. It is ALWAYS so well received!
So again I played with the size so I could incorporate it into my Four Fold Card.
I really hope you like the card and video and enjoy ma…

Mixed Media Cards

A super easy and quick card ….. really!!! I love how it looks do you? I took some smooth white card (CD650), popped the whole template on the card and spread texture paste all over, just before I went to bed. In the morning it was dry and I cut the four designs apart and selected the design I wanted to work on. I swiped Kaisercraft ink pads over the card in a diagonal design and while the ink pads were out, I coloured the little wooden butterfly. I splashed a few drops of candy pink Kaiser Mist  and a generous spritz of white Kasier Mist …. just because I love getting messy! I simply finished the card with Kaiser flowers, and a layer of cheesecloth! Then I washed my messy hands lol!!
