Recently Jayne Killin from South Australia was sent some BELLA products to play around with ....here are her Wedding Cards that she created using the fabulous BELLA products.
Jayne had fun using her Fiskars Trimmer and Scissors! These are a must for any cardmaking!
You really do need a good trimmer,scissors and get yourselfa scoring blade when you purchase your trimmer....these come inso handy when scoring cards.
We hope you are enjoying our CARD A DAYFeature on here.......if you have been inspired to create after seeing one of the TEAMS' projects...by all means share your experience with us....we love seeing what our readers create.....
Imagine how surprised I was a few months ago.... a few days after I held my GIRLS DAY IN fundraiser for the CANCER COUNCIL....when I received this gorgeous handmade "THANK YOU" Card in my maibox.
Glenda had this sent to me to thank me for inviting her to the day...and she told me how wonderful it was for her personally after a very trying 2012 for her and her family.......
Glenda actually had this made by her SIL'S 83 year old mother.......isn't it stunning.
I thought I'd share this today as it shows how you can just use one Border Punch to add some class to a Card.....in this case....the lady has used the Fiskars Sunburst Border Punch...one of my very favourite older punches......but one that I also use a lot on projects.
So why not try something like this next time you are creating a card for someone....get out one of your Fiskars Border Punches to create that classy edge.
I also love the placement of the purple diamente....perfect for the pendant. THANKS GLENDA!

Every year I check my Card list and then check it again......it seems that every year I manage to forget someone....know the feeling?
Well here are three quick and easy Christmas Cards that I made up in no time at all....using supplies from my stash.
This was some leftover cardstock from the Kaisercraft Minit Twist Range that I have been using this year......................using my Fiskars Trimmer I cut the card to size and then folded in half and scored.
I found some coordinating diecuts from the same range....and distressed around the edges with fine sandpaper......so that the white core showed through.....I love doing this....it really defines the border of the shape.....I then attached to the front of my Card with some 3 - dimensional tape.
Now I just have to write inside and get to the Post Office first thing Monday morning!
Can you believe that there are only 10 sleeps untiL CHRISTMAS DAY....OMG......so much still to do!
Our CARD A DAY FEATURE was suppose to end today....but we still have a few more card shares coming up......so make sure you drop by.....we hope you have enjoyed seeing all the different styles and techniques that the Fiskars Craft TEAM have been sharing!
A great way to make a fun card is to use one of the many Fiskars Templates as Tamara has done here.
Here's what she had to say:
This card takes advantage of a beautiful pattern paper by Teresa
Collins as well as my USE and Christmas 1 Template for the
Christmas tree centrepiece. I cut a vertical fold card 4 inches
wide and 11 in long (this means you can get three cards out of a
12x12 sheet of scrapbook paper) with my Fiskars Rotary Trimmer and
then folded it in half. The tree is cut out with my USE and
template from a piece ofcream card stock. I rounded the corners on
both the card base and cream card stock using my 1/4in corner
rounder to add some interest and match the rounded shape of the
tree branches. I stamped a sentiment from Penny Black and coloured
the leaves of the mistletoe, used a black pen to draw fake
stitching around the tree and border and secured it to the card
base. To finish it off I added a bit of sparkle with self adhesive
rhinestones (it is a Christmas card after all!) and a star at the
top if the tree. This design is would be easy and cost effective to
mass produce just make sure you use a heavyweight (card stock
weight) patterned paper for the base or it will be too flimsy.
Another lovely card has been created today by Tamara from Townsville.....here's what she had to say:
This card uses the fun Christmas range Mint Twist from Kaisercraft
as well as one of the Fiskars interchangeable border punches,
Banners Away. I added some grosgrain ribbon with some help of my
micro tip scissors and stamped a sentiment from an older Fiskars
Christmas stamp set. My card bases and layers are all cut with my
trusty Fiskars rotary trimmer.
Today i have a great card that even your kids can make this christmas.
This card used one of my "can not live with out"punches from Fiskars. THe Fiskars roung n round XL squeeze punch.
I made an car by folding and A4 sheet of card stock then punched 4 circles out of different patterned paper. then using 3D foam dots i popped them onto the card. with a sentiment stamp from a 2011 Fiskars stamp set i stamped the sentiment in red then added some glitter glue.
