handmade card using spellbinders dies and graphic 45 sweet sentiments paper collection

Hi Everyone

Today I would like to share a card I made for a special friend. Her favourite colour is purple and her favourite paper collections are Graphic 45 so I have used paper from the Secret Garden collection as my background. The border has been punhed using Martha Stewarts Pansy round the page punch set.  I have die cut the heart using Spellbinders Lace Hearts die and the foliage using Spellbinders Sprigs die from bazzill cardstock.

Other embellishments used are guipure lace, sentiment stamp, Kaisercraft blooms and mini blooms.

Quick Release Die Paper

Written by Stef on . Posted in Blog

quick release die paper

Hi Everyone

We have had Quick Release die paper in stock before but when I arrived back at work today a top up order of it was waiting so I thought we should share this great product with you.

This is a non stick paper that works with most metal dies to make die-cutting easier and every cut cleaner, helping to keep edges sharp and defined.

It comes in a twin pack containing two rolls of multi use designer paper measuring 15cmx5m with a serrated edge for cutting.

The paper has really lovely print on it that you can also use and it is inexpensive.

A 12x12 layout using Kaisercraft Something Blue and Bow and Arrow Paper collections, Tim holtz carnivale die, and Memory box Heart Border

Hi Everyone

Today  I would like to share a layout I created using Kaisercraft Something Blue paper collection.

The base layer is the striped reverse side of Honeymoon sheet. I have used a Martha Stewart Round the page punch to punch a sheet of Kaisercraft Bow and Arrow Heart paper for the next layer. The photo has been layered using paper and embellishments from the Something Blue paper pad and collectables pack.

Other embellishments are a heart button die cut sizzix sew cute button border die and tied with white twine, a 55mm ornamental doyley from Couture Creations Cameo set  and a heart border from Memory box.

The title has been created from letters die cut from  Tim Holtz Carnivale border die.

Journal cards have been tucked under embellishments and photo layers.

Handmade card using Prima doll stamp, Kaisercraft Pitter Patter,Fiskars border punch

Hi everyone

Today I would like to share with you a card created using a Julie Nutting stamp and die set that I have had for a while.

I have used my favourite warm ivory card stock as a base and also to punch the border and die cut the fence and leaves. I have used Bazzill Vanilla card to die cut my doll, Botany to die cut the dolls hair and white card for the poodle.The pretty pink paper used for the front of the card, the dolls dress and the die cut flowers is from the Kaisercraft Pitter Patter collection.

The flowers are made using an assortment of dies so I could keep the flowers small and the they were sprayed with the beautiful new color bloom sprays from prima to give them shine. The tiny butterflies were Die cut from vellum using Tim Holtz butterfly border and also sprayed with colorbloom. The pink decorations on the poodle are pink liquid pearls applied with an Aquash brush.

Other embellishments used are Kaisercraft rhinestone flourish, Rhinestone brads and liquid pearls for flower centres and ivory lace.

something blue thinking of you card

Hi Everyone

At last time to craft and share a card with you. We have recently received new dies in store and I have been keen to try them out. This card is made by die cutting a rose from Ultimate crafts new Celosia collection and Kaisercraft paper from the Something Blue collection. This card also uses a Martha Stewart round the page punch a and a stentiment stamp from Hero Arts. This is a great simple card that could be adapted to lots of occassions.
