ATC's to Swap....

Anyone fancy a swap? I have made a few Artist Trading Cards recently so please contact me if you would like to swap any of them.

I really enjoy making these littler pieces of papercraft and they help to use up some of my smaller pieces of stash!

Lily of the Valley

Another vintage style card - this time featuring the beautiful Lily of the Valley flower, that always reminds me of my grandparents home - one whiff of it's scent and I feel like a five year old playing amongst the flowers again!

Gilding Flakes are so Messy!

....but I love the effect they make! You have to be well prepared with the bowl of water to clean the stamps straight away, all the windows shut to keep out the draughts and the doors shut to keep out the cats!!!

These cards were made with Cosmic Shimmer Silver Dream gilding flakes that have just the odd flake of gold as a contrast in them.

 I used a silver, blue and black colour scheme to try to highlight the silver shimmer.

This weeks cards..

I treated myself to a copy of July's edition Making Cards Magazine that I haven't bought for ages - I like the fact that the free papers are now separate and not bound in the magazine! 

Here's a few cards made with the free images and papers

This week I was pleased to sell 6 cards and pick up 2 commissions at work - helps to justify buying more stash, doesn't it?

Can You Smell the Roses?

You can't go wrong with lovely blooms of roses on birthday cards can you? 

I cannot resist sniffing any roses that are by the path, as I walk by people houses. No perfume really captures their fabulous smell!
