Some cards to share

Hi everyone,

Well I've just come back from the Craft Expo in Brisbane, helped the lovely Hetty Hall with her gorgeous classes and I actually ended up teaching a quick class as well, so exciting. I just loved meeting everyone and putting names to faces, so much fun! I'll share some photos soon.

I'm off to Shellharbour for the Easter Break with the family, no cardmaking just pure relaxation - sitting on the beach, drinking a glass of wine and enjoying the company of wonderful friends, arrr doesn't that sound nice!

Anyway.... just to keep you going LOL, here are a few cards I made over the last couple of weeks. I will be having withdrawals over the next five days I'm sure!



This card I used Prima flower sprig, Jenni Bowlin buttons, collection butterfly and Webster's Pages 6in paper. The other bits and pieces were given to me by Sherry Mendoza with the instructions to make something with them, and so I did LOL

Sorry there is no picture of this card as it's being published, Cardmaking, Stamping & Papercraft magazine Vol 16 No 10. Yeah!!!

This is a cool technique called Faux Tiling, I adapted it a little, it's embossing card through the cuttlebug, swiping sepia ink over the top, coat with cream paint, sand then clear emboss it. I will share some steps I think, much better way to explain it (soon). The effect looks similar to distressed tiles. The stamp is from Inkadinkado set called Best Friends, Love is cut from my Cricut machine and I used Webster's Pages trim.


This is another card with a different Faux Tiling technique, it's very easy and effective, yes I said I would share LOL! Next post okay. The stamp is Stamping Bella, I just love these style of stamps, so cute.


This is another card that Sherry gave me a few piece and told me to make a card, I always love a challenge!! I managed to make six cards that night, woohoo!



Another card made by bits and pieces thrown to me by Sherry LOL, the ribbon, Maya Road plastic journal, Collections butterfly, just added a few more things and viola!

Well I hope these cards have inspired you to use up your bits and pieces that you have lying around!! I certainly had fun and can't wait until Sherry throws some more my way!!

Have a great Easter everyone!! Eat chocolate and celebrate the 're-birth'.

Thanks for looking

Jane
