Valou Allard - "Key of My Heart" from "Kaisercraft"

Hello my friends! 

Valou today for a new card with "Key Of My Heart", "Kaisercraft's collection".

For this card, I used papers "Kaisercraft", collection "The Key Of My Heart". I adore these papers! I used edges with "Old Distresser".

Then, I realized a die-cut doily with "Cuttlebug" and a dies " Noor! Design - Round 2 " in a golden paper of the same collection.

Then, I used a digistamp "Inky Impressions", " Maddie Spreading The Love ".

I colorized it in the following way: 

- Ink " Distress Vintage Photo " and "Distress Tattered Rose" for the skin. 
- Ink "Distress Tea Dye" and "Distress Walnut Stain" for hair. 
- Ink "Distress Walnut Stain" for shoes and basket. 
- Ink pure "Distress Worm Lipstick" the pink. 
- Ink "Distress Stromy Sky" for the blue. 
- Ink "Distress Black Soot" diluted for the earring. 

- "Glitter Stickels Icicle" on hearts.

Then, I embossed with some powder "Frantage Shabby Pink" everything around the girl.

Under the image, I added of the  white lace (wide), the wrinkled satin pink ribbon and the ribbon with white flowers.

I realized a bow with a fall of ribbon " pink Organza " as well as a bow with a fall of brilliant pink cord got back on a decoration. I stuck them the one on the other one to the right of the image.

For the decoration, I added the following embellishments: 

- A big pink rose 2 tones (30 mm). 
- Two off-white paper flowers. 
- Two paper blue flowers rolled. 
- A cloth white rose. 
- Two small cloth white flowers. 
- A knot which I realized with a piece of tulle. 
- A wooden heart (pink Vichy) attached to a ribbon pink organza, of the brilliant pink cord, the pink satin ribbon, and decorated with three pink pearly pearls. 

All the flowers are covered with some touches of "Glitter Stickels Icicle" and decorated with foliages realized with a dies " Toga ". 

To the right, I added a butterfly realized with a dies "Marianne Designs", embossed with a file " Provocraft-Peas " and decorated with a small butterfly realized with a small puncher.

Here we are! I hope that my realization has you more and that it will inspire you.

I thank you for your passage and wish you an excellent day! Bye for now!

And here is for today! 

I wish you an excellent day and Happy New Yar!!!!

Christine - Looking Glass Gift Cards

Hi there - Christine here.  
Today I have a set of gift cards I made using Kaisercraft's Looking Glass Collection....

I made 6 - 3x4" cards and envelopes and made a matching Gift Bag to put them in.  I used the We R Memory Keepers envelope maker and the Gift Bag Punch Board.
I think these punch boards are fantastic and I love using them.

I added some trinkets, from Papervine, tied with a bit of Bakers twine to the front of each card.  I just stamped the sentiment "for you" for each card.  This is a great way to use up some leftover patterned paper.

Well it is nearly the end of the year- just one more day! All the best for 2014 and another year of Crafting!


Happy Creating!

Christine - Gift Bag Punch Board

Hi all - Christine here with a belated post...
Liz has an annual Christmas Day on a Saturday at the beginning of December at the Artfull Crafts shop, so I thought I would share some of the crafty goodness from that day.

My contribution was to make a bag using the new Gift bag punch board from W R Memory Keepers, this is it here....

This is the large bag from a 6x12" piece of paper - we used Kaisercraft's  Christmas Carol .
I used mine to put a gift card in along with a couple of chocolate bars!

Below are examples of the 3 sizes you can make...

from left to right the large, medium and small. You can vary the height depending on the size of your paper.

I also have to show you the Exploding Christmas Box we made with fellow DT member -Robbi. I was so excited to make this!!  Here it is as the box.....

 And this is it having taken the lid off to explode!!!!!

I finished mine the next day and then had to make another......

I made this one for my daughter for Christmas and put a gift card in one of the pockets. So Thanks Robbi for a great idea!

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas - I certainly did!  My youngest son (22) was very brave and went into the Artfull Crafts shop and with a bit of help from J, bought me some of the new Kaisercraft Captured Moments cards! I was very impressed I must say!!


Happy Creating!

Valou - Key to My Heart Mini Album

Hello my friends! 

Valou today for the post of inspiration.

This morning, I come to present you a mini-album "Texture" that I adored realizing my my 4-year-old daughter. Photos were taken during a funny moment when my daughter put! Lol

Place in photos and in explanations!

To realize the binding and the faces of both frames, I used some ecru linen and the ouatine.

To realize this mini-album, I used two wooden frames (13 x 18 cms).

Both wooden plaques which decorate both frames come from the shop " Embelliscrap ".

I worked these frames with the technique of "Gesso" and paper mourchoirs. You can find a complete tutoriel on the blog of the shop " Artfull Crafts Shop " on December 26th.

For the back cover and the cover before, I used two rubberstamps "Magnolia". I colored them in the following way: 

- Ink "Distress Tattered Rose" and "Distress Vintage Photo" for the skin. 
- Ink "Distress Tea Dye" and "Distress Walnut Stain" for hair. 
- Ink "Distress Worm Lipstick" for the pink. 
- Ink "Distress Stormy Sky" for the blue. 
- "Glitter Stickels Icicle" for the shine.

Je les ai découpées puis collées sur chaque cadre avec des morceaux de mousse 3-d.

I cut them then stuck on every frame with foam pieces 3-d.

For the pages of my mini-album, I used some paper " vanilla Kaisercraft Cardstock " and the papers of the collection " Key to my Heart " of "Kaisercraft".

Every paper is used with "Old Distresser" and inked to the ink "Distress Tea Dye".

I also used white paper doilies, the lace ecru and grey (Green Tara), the pink satin ribbon, the ribbon pink organza, of the ribbon bordeau organza and of the ribbon organza cremates.

I decorated with blue flowers of cherry tree, pink roses (20 mm), with blue "Lilidafts", ecru "Lilidafts", pink "Lilidafts", blue roses (10 mm), roses Bordeaux (15 mm), white roses (15 mm)pink flat flowers " Kaisercraft " and flat flowers Bordeaux " Kaisercraft ". All these flowers are covered with "Glitter Stickels Frosed Lace".

I also added die-cuts of the collection " Key of my Heart " of "Kaisercraft" whom I stuck with the foam 3-d. I also added little of "Glitter Stickels Frosted Lace" on some of these die-cuts to add of the shine.

And here is for the explanations!

And here is for today! I return very fast with a complete tutoriel!

I wish you an excellent day and find you very soon with a new realization!

Have a lovely day!
