Slimline Card


 

Hello everyone. I hope that you are keeping safe and well. It has been a little while since I've shared a project with you, but with the challenges of Covid affecting shipping, Kaisercraft have experienced problems in receiving product. I am glad to be able to share a slimline card with you, using the Le Belle Collection. Its vintage and gorgeous.


I have enjoyed creating cards using slimline dimensions. I use 9" x 4" for my card base.

For the focal area of my card, I have used a birdcage and butterfly from the collectables. I fussy cut some flowers from Garden (reverse) to add to the base of the cage. I then altered some paper blooms to add dimension and also add a vintage feel to the card.


As I had chosen a slimline card as my card design, I could take advantage of the extra length of the card front. I used a variety of fishtails created from dies from my stash and adhered them using glue and foam tape to add dimension.

To all of my fellow Sydney friends, I hope the current lockdown has not been too difficult for you and that you are all safe and well.


Take good care.

Sew By Row

 

Hello everyone! I hope that you are safe and well. I have taken advantage of our lockdown in Sydney and have finished my Lori Holt Sew By Row cross stitch. I absolutely love how this has turned out and can't wait to frame it and place it 'somewhere' in my house. I follow the Fat Quarter Shop on Youtube which is where I saw this and then I purchase the pdf pattern at the beginning of the year and now it is no longer a WIP but a finish!

 

Here are some close ups...




Take good care.

Blessed

 

Hello everyone! I hope that you are well. I am sharing a layout that I have created using the Flowering Natives Collection from Kaisercraft. It has beautiful native florals in this collection. I decided to take it in a vintage direction with my layout.

I distressed the edges of my papers and inked them with vintage photo distress ink. I also used stamping and stencils to add textures in my background. I applied some of the vintage photo distress ink to my paper to dull it. When I did this, it reminded me of faded wallpaper.


I cut up a sentiment from the base of a paper and inked the edges and used it on my layout. I felt it complimented the sentiment. To add more vintage feel to my layout, I added some ink splatters once complete.

Birthday Wishes

 Hello everyone! It's been a very long while but I am very happy to be able to share a birthday card with you today. It's using paper from Kaisercraft's new release Lilac Mist.



To create my card, I wanted to showcase lots of the papers as I had a difficult time deciding which ones I wanted to use as I liked them all. To help me in my design decision, I pulled out of the paper pad some papers that were my first choice - which were four! Next I went to Pinterest and had a look at the card sketches. I often do this to kick start my ideas and then I found a sketch that appealed to me. This sketch would enable me to showcase the papers I selected plus provide me with some options in my composition.

My take on the sketch....


To get the dimensions of the smaller squares, I just cut out scrap paper and played around with them until I was happy with everything. 


Once my papers were positioned, I embellished with flowers and dies from previous releases.

Mini Quilt

 

Hello everyone! I hope that you are well. As Kaisercraft is having shipping delays with their products, it has given me the opportunity to dabble in some of my other crafting hobbies that I haven't had the time to do in ages...one which is quilting! I have been a fan of Lori Holt for a while and she has a Youtube channel where she shares tutorials for various crafts. She has a series called #sewyourstashseries where she shares quilt blocks that enable you to do just that. This block was a way back into quilting for me...nothing too big and something I could finish.


This is my completed quilt. This is from the Sew Your Stash Series #6 and it was so much fun! I only had to purchase some background fabric (only a little bit..the rest I already had) and I could mix and match as I went.


To complete my quilt, I did some straight line quilting in a grid pattern to finish it off.

Stay safe and well

With Sympathy Card

 

Happy New Year! This is my first post of the new year but sadly I am posting a sympathy card. These are the cards I find hardest to make. I try to consider the recipients and how they will receive the card. I went with an elegant style as I felt it would be would be appropriate.

I used Spellbinder frames and layered flowers to compliment my papers. I also added a butterfly as a symbol of hope.
I did some stamping on the inside of the card. I had a sympathy stamp set that had some sentiments.

Layered Christmas Card

 

Hello everyone! I hope that you are well. Today I am catching up on a blog post to share two cards that I made a little while ago for my friends (they already have their cards!) Now that I am on holidays and am starting to feel semi-normal, I have the energy to do more things that now and a bit of mojo to share things again!! I am wanting to use some things in my stash and I pulled out my beautiful Maja Design papers and a Tim Holtz colorize die that I ordered this year and created two cards.


I used a slimline card format as my card base and I created my own envelope using patterned paper. I used Kaisercraft cardstock to die cut the elements from the die. Having muted colours assisted in created the vintage look that I love.

For my second card, I used patterned paper from the collection to die cut the elements to create the scene. 

For both cards, I used a Tim Holtz seasons greeting die set to create my sentiment.


Supplies: Maja Design A Gift For You Collection, Tim Holtz Seasons Greetings 660058 and Colorize Holiday Village 664737 


For my friends in NSW take good care during these next few days. If we follow the health advice, this outbreak will be contained and we will be able to enjoy the festive season (hopefully!!)


To everyone else, take very good care.

Thanks for stopping by
