Sympathy cards - 2

Two more sympathy cards I made for my friend.  This time I let all the cutting dies do the work.

I love this feather die but the end result is never quite what I envisage ?

Hope my friend likes the cards I have made for you.  I have a busy week socially, so I don’t think I will get much more crafting done.  But I can hope

Enjoy your day

Sympathy Cards

A friend asked me to make some sympathy cards for her.  Two I finished today using Kaisercraft Cottage Rose papers

I hope I get a couple more finished tomorrow

Are you crafting this weekend

Two different cards

I finished  two cards this morning, entirely different styles.  We had a new baby in our extended family this week, and I used my last  baby boy card, so had to make another for my stash.

The next card is for my BIL birthday.  I used a Darkroon Door stamp, coloured with Distress Oxide inks.  Papers are from Kaisercraft Factory 42 collection 

I haven't made any cards for awhile, so was pleased to get started again.

Hope you are having a great crafting weekend

Kaisercraft Anthropology Cards

Well a week ago I decided to try Alicia McNamara from Papercraft Secrets instructions for 10 Kaisercraft Anthropology cards.  I really did have very good intentions, but I got sidetracked.  I didn’t have all the materials so was making do with what I had. Here are 5 finished - maybe 1 similar to the samples 🤔

I now need to make a baby boy card, welcoming a new addition to my extended family. Such joy!

Till then, have a great crafting day

Lazy times

Since returning from holidays, I have not had time for any crafting.  I got my card and papers out on Saturday but nothing eventuated.

So today I am sharing a "little girl" die cut I made last year and added to a card.  She is made from Kaisercraft Memory Lane papers and is still one of my favourites

Here she is on a finished card... oh so cute!

I hope my crafting mojo returns soon and that I have get time to play.
Have a great day

Beautiful sunrise

On Wednesday I had an early flight and this was the beautiful sunrise from the plane window.

I am visiting friends in far North Queensland, so may be missing for a couple of weeks.
Warmer days, lovely

Kaisercraft Bombay Sunset cards

I made these Boho styled cards at the weekend based on instructions from Alicia McNamara from Papercraft Secrets.  I used Kaisercraft Bombay Sunset papers, and gold glitter card on a Hibiscus die as the floral embellishment.  Finished off with Kaisercraft Blooms and wooden flourishes.  Very bright and cheery cards

After finishing the cards, I thought I would jazz them up a little bit and make coordinating envelope liners.  This finishes off the cards beautifully

With the little strip of paper left over from the envelope liver, I added it to the inside of the card.

Three of the cards with the matching envelopes.

I hope to be able to use up all this paper pad before I move onto the next, fingers crossed.

Hope you had a great day
