I appologize for the lateness of this post and having no time to craft last week because I was away, I sat down yesterday morning (sunday) and made a couple of cards. It’s funny how not crafting for a week brought out the creativity and these days, I really miss it when I’m not able to work with my hands.
The first 4 cards are my DT projects for last week. All based around simplicity, Kaisercraft papers and Unity stamps. I was surprised at how quickly I made these cards. I am normally umming and aahing about everything so it was a blessing in disguise for me to just sit down and in an hour, I had 4 cards to show. I guess I missed making things more than I thought :)
Some of you may know from past posts, that I have quite the Paper Pad addiction (over 70 and counting lol). I love them so much because being predominately a cardmaker, the size suits me well… so I was going through my paper pad drawers yesterday and noticed that I have a lot of Kaisercraft paper pads and knew that they also come with some great diecuts at the end of the pad, so what better way to keep cards simple, is to use what I have without adding to0 much of anything else from my scrap drawers. I found it really easy working this way so I will stop babbling now and show you the cards.
MAY HAPPINESS FILL YOUR HEART
Cardstock: stash – white linen textured 220gsm Patterned Paper & Diecut: La-Di-Da 6inch paper pad by Kaisercraft Ink: Memento – Tuxedo Black Stamps: Unity Stamp Company – KOTM February 2010 – Nothing But Blue Skies from Craft-A-Lot. Pearls: Kaisercraft – Pearl Glue: Ranger – Glossy Accents, Kindyglitz – Crystalina
A couple of punched hearts and a little glitter glue adds a little more dimension to this stamped image.
The sentiment was stamped onto a diecut which was included in the 6inch paper pad then I added a pearl to the sweet little flower and thought it didn’t need anything else than that.
Using a white pen (instead of my sewing machine), I added dashed lines or faux stitching around the main frame of my card just to tie it all in.
The next 3 cards, I used the same paper pad so I will add the supplies list for all 3 at the end of the post.
I’M HUNG UP ON YOU
LOVE BELIEVES ALL THINGS
For this card, I decided to let the paper be the star so all I did was choose a diecut and stamp a sentiment. Very simple but makes a big impact.
ISN’T IT TIME WE GET TOGETHER
For this card, I chose 4 diecut shapes, 2 pieces of patterned paper and a little black and white twine. I made the umbrella using a 2 1/4 in circle cut using Martha Stewart’s circle cutter and then punched little pieces out of it using a 1 inch punch.I added some black and white twine for the umbrella handle.
I stamped a sentiment onto a diecut shape then layered it onto another diecut shape using 3D foam.I finished off the card by added a tied organza bow to the umbrella.
