Step Cards - Shabby Chic

Continuing with the goodies from the shabby chic collection that I ordered:


When I saw the 3D sheet, I knew that I wanted to make some step cards:








Gosh it is such a pretty collection!

Check out my videos that show you how!




I hope you love them as much as I do

Thanks for looking in

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 making one yourself.






On the front of my card I used the wonderful Kaiercraft Hydrangea die. I stuck the petals onto half a polystyrine ball for extra dimension. I embossed the Kaisercrafts Butterfly Die and inked and embossed the wooden flourish!  Distressing has also been used.

Here is my video!

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!!
