Quick and Easy Cards (KaiserCraft)

Hi Everyone,

If you have been following me for any length of time you would know that I sometimes (!) create rather fussy scene cards which take…a while…to complete. lol I *love* creating cards like this but occasionally I like to try other things including making quick and easy cards. Today I am sharing two cards which use Captured Moments cards from KaiserCraft (similar to Project Life cards). Unfortunately, I cannot tell you which set the cards come from as they were only packaged in plastic with no name on them. Such a shame as they are just gorgeous! Anyway, here are two super quick and easy cards which I really must try and replicate as I had forgotten just how much I love them. Hope you like them too. I hope they inspire you to use your Captured Moments/Project Life cards in a different way.

Here’s the first card…

Hello Gorgeous
Materials used: Stamps – Hello Today (DiamondPress); Dies – Hello Today (Diamond Press); Hybrid Ink – Hot Fudge (MFT); Cards -Captured Moments (Kaiser Craft); Cardstock – American Crafts; Stickers – DIY Shop Wordfetti Gold (American Crafts); and Sprinkled Shapes: Hearts (Doodlebug Designs).

Here’s the second card…

Hello Beautiful
Materials used: Dies – Hello There (MFT); Cards -Captured Moments (Kaiser Craft); Cardstock – American Crafts; Stickers – DIY Shop Wordfetti Gold (American Crafts); Washi Tape (Stampin’ Up!) and Sprinkled Shapes: Hearts (Doodlebug Designs).

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Happy Stamping!

Hi Everyone,

Are cacti and succulents still trending? I hope so as I have a few cards to share. I still love them…but then again I always have. When I was growing up my Mum and Dad had a small succulent collection. They had some amazing plants.

Anyway, let’s backtrack to last year…I was keeping a friend company while she was hosting an open house. I had only a few supplies with me to help pass the time. (Unfortunately, it would seem the stamps I have used are no longer available). I created a few cards over the course of the day and in typical Kylie style, they are very similar. As you all know because I am always thinking, “what if I do this? or what about that?”, I usually end up making all the variations. Sometimes I only make two variations and other times…well, let’s just say I make a LOT! And often times there are only a couple of details which vary.

I hope you don’t mind when I share all the variations. I know they are very much alike but I am hoping that maybe they will inspire you in some small way. Let me know below if you would prefer to see just the one look. Okay, let’s get onto the cards…

 

Here’s the card…

Sending you a prickly hug!
Materials used: Stamps – Stuck on You (CTMH); Copic Makers; Ink – Black Licorice Hybrid (MFT), Spun Sugar Distress Ink (Tim Holtz/Ranger), and Cardstock – Knights Smooth, American Crafts.

When this card was done, I thought it needed a little bit more colour. I also wasn’t sure about the greeting…”Sending you a prickly hug!” – do I not like you very much? I’ll send you a hug but it has a little bit of attitude with it. lol Hmm…time to change it up.

 

Here’s the card…

Hug Me!
Materials used: Stamps – Stuck on You (CTMH); Copic Makers; Ink – Black Licorice Hybrid (MFT); Cardstock – Knights Smooth, and Designer Paper – Close to My Heart.

This card is the same design, however, I’ve used a patterned background which gives it a little more lift. I’ve also used “Hug me!” which seems a little more friendly, albeit a little needier too. haha

Onto the third card…I’ve gone for a generic “Thank you” sentiment time. The panel is centred but reaches the top of the card base to the bottom. I’ve also shaded around the succulents with blue instead of the grey I used in the previous cards. I think that brightens the card a little.

 

Here’s the card…

 

Thank You
Materials used: Stamps – Stuck on You, A Thousand Thanks (CTMH); Copic Makers; Ink – Black Licorice Hybrid (MFT); Cardstock – Knights Smooth, CTMH.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed seeing my cards!

Happy Stamping!

One from the vault: Baby (KaiserCraft)

Hi Everyone,

A quick post today. I was going through some photographs and came across the card I had made for a friend after the birth of her son. It is completely different from my usual style as it is completely made with die cuts – no stamping at all (although I did ink up the sky). I love it. I sometimes find myself buying die cuts with the idea of using them on scrapbook layouts or cards but they just sit there. This card is inspiring me to get them out and USE them! If you are like me, I hope this card inspires you to use your die cuts too!

 

Here’s the card…

Baby

The card was created using papers and die cuts from the Little One Collection by KaiserCraft! I really loved this line!

Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you have a great day!

Happy Stamping!

Have a Magical Day (Lawn Fawn)

Hi Everyone,

Happy New Year! To kick off the year, I thought I would share one of the cards I made last year but never uploaded it onto my blog. For this card, I used the super cute Fairy Friends stamps from Lawn Fawn. I really cannot wait to make some more cards using this set. It’s darling! This card is something a little different for me as I didn’t colour in the sky. I had seen another card online (and regrettably I cannot recall where) where the sky had been kept white and I thought it was really pretty. So I just had to give it a try – always good to try something new.

Here’s the card…

Have a Magical Day

Have you tried making a scene card where you too have left the sky plain? Will you try it again?

Thanks for stopping by today!

Happy Stamping!

One more Christmas Card

Hi Everyone,

Although we are just hours away from a new year, I do still have one last Christmas card to share. This is the card which *almost* became the chosen design for my Christmas card but having finalised the design at the last minuted I didn’t have the time to order in enough patterned paper. I like the card although there are things I would tweak if I decided to make it again.

Here’s the card…

Merry Christmas

Thanks for stopping by today. Thank you too for you support again this year…even though I posted so infrequently. I really appreciated your kind comments on my posts and the emails you’ve sent me. I look forward to sharing more card designs with you in 2017.

Happy Stampin’!
