Well ladies, what a day it is here in Geraldine, New Zealand! RAIN, RAIN, RAIN - it really is time it stopped now. Christina, at Cardmaking Paradise in the UK, was saying they are enjoying some sun, at last.We have just about forgotten what the sun looks like - anyway better stop complaining and count all the positives, that abound round us. A nice warm workroom being one and being able to spend some quality time with my husband. He can't mow lawns today!!
Today I thought I would show you the cards that I made for the Kaisercraft's April Workshop Magazine, using the lovely Kaleidoscope collection. It really is a bright happy range, with lots of colour. In some ways it reminds me of their Secret Admirer collection, which was ever so popular.
This card is called a diorama card and there are plenty of tutorials on the web, if you would like to make it. I have made it a 5 1/4" square card as I am rather fond of this size lately. Quite a fun one to make, ladies.
For this card I used my 1 1/4" and my 1 1/2" circle punches, punching out various sizes and paper then attaching them to a piece of acetate, putting a frame round then mounting it all onto a basic card. I was thrilled with the effect- agree ladies!
Again, another 5 1/4" square card. You will notice I have used a Spellbinders Label Die but have placed it the other way. Tim Holtz rosette die was also used.
As I love chevron patterns, as well as stripes and spots, I just had to use this gorgeous paper! Loved putting it with the circles etc. Simple but effective, I think.
Must go and climb back into MY CAVE, as my neighbour calls it, and hibernate 'til the rain stops! Do hope you are all keeping warm and dry where ever you are and doing. Thanks for taking the time to check my ramblings and hope my cards give you some inspiration.
Blessings and happy crafting,
