Cards finished today in my "new" studio

I was happy to be in my studio today working on cards for I found a copy of Cards magazine (Dec10) for less than the shelf price (I think around $15). I've never seen this magazine in person and was delighted to get a copy. I only wish it wasn't full of Christmas cards :) Although I now have plenty of ideas for next year.

I still don't have the hang of my new camera - probably because I haven't bothered to read the instruction book. So my pictures aren't the best. I'm sure it is the light in my family room but I didn't want to trek back upstairs to take the pictures!

The first three cards are my originals.

These two have Kraft paper as the base and then a pink texture cardstock on top.

The "shiny" on this card is coming from the silver ink I sponged on. You can't see if this shiny on the actual card so I was surprised to see if show up in the picture.

These cards are all CASEd from the Cards magazine, Dec10 issue.

The base is a peach cardstock with a teal ribbon tied around it to match the first layer cardstock under the white embossed paper. The flowers are punched out and small pieces of scrap cardstock are under the flowers.

I didn't like this when I first finished it, but after letting it sit on the table overnight, I decided to add glitter and send it!

I don't like this at all. Wanted to use the bling along the side but I'm not happy with the outcome.

This is my favorite of the day. Used my sewing machine to attach the 3 pieces of cardstock.


  1. Great cards! I am totally going to use your idea to add sparkle by sponging the silver ink to the package - I am always looking for ways to sparkle up cards without adding glitter. Thanks for sharing!

  2. What great cards for OWH. Hope you are enjoying your new studio!
