cards, cards, cards...

it has been awhile since I've made this many cards at a stretch. I better get with it, though, I need to get them in the mail yesterday.

I saw a tree made with this punch and it was much more elaborate than mine. Now of course I can't find the link.

Added another tree to the slideshow. My cards aren't as "polished" as I would like but practice makes perfect, as they say, so I just need to keep creating. ;)

alcohol inks on foil

Two new cards... alcohol inks on embossed foil. I used spray adhesive to fasten the foil to the card stock, then ran it through the cuttlebug. I added inks for color. The cards were part of a Michael Strong stamps challenge. So finally, I entered a challenge. It has been a long time. I have 2 more foil embossed cards to finish, don't know what I will do yet. These are way prettier than they scan. ;)

About Me

My photo
just a crafty grandma experimenting with all sorts of things. My main interests are paper craft of any kind and quilting/sewing. But I've done leatherwork, polymer clay, on-the-wheel pottery, painted molded ceramics, papier mache, stained glass, plaster casting, linoleum printing, paper making... you name it, I've probably tried it. A few I actually stuck with. :)
