Busy, Busy, Busy!!


Lately, I've been in 'locked down' mode at the scrap bench creating madly, so please forgive me as I endeavour to play blog catch up over the next few days.

For Anna's Craft Cupboard, I've been playing with the Kaisercraft Blae & Ivy Collection.

These are some of my creations which Anna has featured recently



Materials Used:

Kaisercraft - Blae & Ivy Die Cut & Gloss Varnish Odyssey, Blae & Ivy Dew Drop, Blae & Ivy Mineral, Blae & Ivy Sky, Blae & Ivy Valley, Blae & Ivy Mini Journal Tags, Blae & Ivy Sticker Sheet, Paper Blooms – F630 Iceberg, Paper Blooms – F633 Olive, Wood Flourishes – FL302 Bird Cages, Pearl Strips, Grosgrain Ribbon - Natural



'Together Forever'


Materials Used:

Kaisercraft - Blae & Ivy Dew Drop, Blae & Ivy Field, Blae & Ivy Meadow, Blae & Ivy Sky, Blae & Ivy Valley, Blae & Ivy Sticker Sheet, Blae & Ivy Acrylic Clear Stamps, Little Toot – Paper Pad, Wood Flourishes – ‘Forever’, Wood Flourishes - Frames, Paper Blooms – F630 Iceberg – F633 Olive

For touch of contrast, I added a splash of red from the Kaisercraft Little Toot Paper Pad.

Trailing leaves have been created with the Blae & Ivy Acrylic Stamp Set and Kaisercraft Paper Blooms Iceberg and Olive coordinate beautifully.




Materials Used

Kaisercraft - Blae & Ivy Mystic Cove, Blae & Ivy Dew Drop, Blae & Ivy Sticker Sheet, Blae & Ivy Rubons, Blae & Ivy Acrylic Clear Stamps, Paper Blooms – Fairy Floss, Paper Blooms – Sage, Flutterby’s –EM961 Bubblegum, Grosgrain Ribbon – RI602 Little Girls, Rose Ink, B & W Sentiment Rubons, Wood Flourishes - Frame

I have introduced 'pink' and have again called on the acrylic stamp set. I first stamped a 'doily' medallion straight on to the cardstock with rose ink and then created layers of leaves by using the trailing leaves stamp with also rose ink. Some more pink with Fairy Floss Paper Blooms, some ribbon and a Flutterby. A touch of soft green has been added with one of the cardstock sticker elements and Sage Paper Blooms.
