The other night I decided to go through my paper stash and possibly organize them according colour/season. Guess twice did I manage to finish the organizing? Nope. It didn’t take long for me to get distracted by actual crafting.
All is not lost, though. I ended up using bunch of scraps from my Valentine’s Day Wall Art-project and came up with this:
I should taken the pic in the daylight as the colours are really off but trust me, it’s very pretty in its pink hues. I’m participating in following challenges:
Here’s the second set of Christmas cards I made. With these I went with the more traditional style. Naturally, I got a lot of admiring comments on these and once again I got suggestions to sell them. That’s when I usually point out that the what I can sell these for and how long I spend making these, aren’t exactly a match made in commercial heaven ;)
Sometimes it shuts people up, sometimes it doesn’t.
Anyhoo, the techniques I used on these were pretty basic. Some washi tape, faux stitching, Distress-inking…The usual. The papers are from the Basic Grey’s 25th & Pine-collection.
I just realized I made one more card but I don’t have a picture of that. Bummer. Would it be embarrassing to go to my neighbour’s and ask if I could take a picture of the card I gave them? Or just plain creepy?
The challenges I’m participating in with these cards:
I managed to whip up my first holiday card this year. I got a free ticket to an ice hockey game and as a thank you, I made this card (and a small gift but I forgot to take a picture of that).
The picture is of horrible quality. I was in a hurry and it was already dark outside. Anyhoo, making this card was very simple. I used my new Christmas-themed washi tapes for the background and I stamped the snowman on some very thick watercolour paper. I fussy cut it and attached it on the card with some foam dots.
I’d like to participate with this Happy Little Snowman to these challenges:
I bought some new crafty supplies last month, including a cute Gorjuss-stamp which was on sale. I like sales. They are best. Last night I got bitten by a crafty bug and made this Halloween-card. Who knows, I might even send it to someone ;)
The techniques I used were pretty basic. Distressing, inking….The little witch hat is pieced and is part of a Stampendous Halloween-stamp. For colouring I used ProMarkers as per usual. The doodle stitching was done with .5 Zig Millenium-pen.
Last Saturday we celebrated my cousin’s graduation. Can you believe…She became a bonafide pilot! That’s all levels of cool (she also skateboards and snowboards) and I couldn’t be more proud of her. Naturally I had to make a card (and a present but that will be another post) for her:
I used some papers by Crate Paper, mint green glitter Thickers, a wooden bird and Distress Ink. The recipient called the card ‘very cool’ so I think we can safely call this card a success. Also, doing paper crafts after such a long period, felt really good. To celebrate my return to paper-y goodness, I’m participating in these challenges:
