At cute card Thursday they have asked for die cuts and punches.
I'm still on Christmas Cards. This time I used 3 die cuts from Kaisercraft's Frosted range.
I couldn't resist putting gold stars on those trees!
I also used a border punch on the blue strip across the top.
I started with Kraft coloured card. I misted it using sugar maple then I printed on it with yellow paint and a lid to make the circles. I trimmed it with washi tape and some gold braid. I then scattered the punched apples across the top and tied it with a gold organza bow.
I'm entering this at Li'l red wagon where the theme is fruit. I have no idea why the text is highlighted in white. This is freshly typed.
I've combined these two on this card.
The cat picture is paper tole. There are 5 layers including the washi tape. I'm including some packaging card that came with enamel dots.
The 2 buttons match the washi tape stars and the balls of wool.
At Ellibelles corner they want something starting with B.
I've had this die cut for a while and decided to use it as it features Birthday. (B word).
I kept the background neutral. A few tiny rhinestones were added on some of the flowers.
I had 2 animal stickers from last month's kit that I hadn't used so decided to create a 7th birthday card using them.
The striped tag is from MME packaging I cut up.
The background paper, stripe and sentiment are a new Kaisercraft brand of papers I was given, named Morning Dew.
I had a Prima packaging here that actually featured words down the side, so I turned that into a tag and added it to the card. I've also used a blue brad, some ribbon, a typewriter sticker and a scrap of patterned paper from a layout I made the other day.
I started by fussy cutting a dove from an old Christmas card (recycling). I chose a fairly plain patterned paper and sentiment to go with the card.
At the last minute, I decided it needed some bling so put 2 gold stars around the sentiment.
Back in 2009 my daughter and I toured around Europe. Long before phones with cameras I captured most of our holiday on my camera.. We would stop somewhere and it became common for me to say "hang on to this for me" while I got the magic shot.
In Venice we were in St Mark's square and she automatically put out her arms and leg for me to give her the bags etc. Hence this layout.
I've used mainly black and white again with a touch of silver.
I used a red star pattern as my background, then used a large white and a smaller blue star where the circles are located on the sketch. The cross paper has Merry Christmas written on it so I didn't use a sentiment.
This is the challenge at Kraft plus.
I started with a kraft cardstock from Bella with fine white checks.
Next, I dribbled red misting and stamped with a geometric patterned stamp I had.
I used 2 paper doilies from D-Lish scraps and some red and kraft patterned paper as my matting.
Then 2 strips of black and white washi tape and 4 tickets which are red and kraft coloured.
My alphas are black and white and also 2 sparkly letters in red. There are 3 stick on chipboard "blackboard" words.
My other embellishments are 2 red buttons, a flourish and a flower sticker.
LM #462 - Recipe Challenge - use the recipe below to complete your layout:
1 banner, 2 photos, 3 or more chipboard elements, and glittery letters or embellishments.
In case you are wondering, I'm not using a Counterfeit kit this month which gives me a chance to use MY CHOICE of papers etc.
I've used a sticker banner from Sassafrass Lass .
My 2 photos are of the temporary cathedral in Christchurch New Zealand.
The 3 chipboard items are the penny farthing bicycle, the pink frame around the journaling and the small blue circle thing found in my scrap tray. (I think it was a blueberry), Maybe a bird's face.
My glittery alphas are almost complete so I shortened my title. NZ '19.
