Batch Making July Thank You Note Cards

It’s time to stock up on some new thank you note cards for July – however, I’m still having trouble with my video camera not recording audio!! So this is a sped-up process, but it really doesn’t need that much explanation! Click the YouTube link below to watch my entire (sped up) process from start to finish.

These cards have been made using my two new stencils for July – Star Lattice & Diamond Lattice, plus Distress Oxides and a selection of elements from Dina Wakley Media stamps and Tim Holtz stamps.

Random 52 – “Freedom” – Acrylic Paints & Coloured Pencils

I pulled the word “Freedom” from my stack of Random 52 prompt cards and decided to attempt a female face on a small scrap of watercolour cardstock. I was pleasantly surprised at how it turned out so decided to turn the painting into a card.

It wasn’t until I pulled the video from my camcorder that I realised the camera hadn’t recorded any sound…again! I really need to get it replaced! So, rather than bin the footage I’ve added in some soothing music instead!

Metallic Embossed Alcohol Ink Birthday Card for Dad!

77th Birthday Card for Dad!

This is a 6×6 card I made for Dad’s 77th Birthday on 27th March. I had an idea to use two of the Tim Holtz (Sizzix) 3D texture fade embossing folders “Foundry” & “Mechanics” with some gold mirror card and also to use up some of my old alcohol inks that have been sitting gathering dust for an eon!

The butterflies are the “Detailed Butterflies” from Tim Holtz & Sizzix too! I used the same butterfly die on my Mother’s Day card – it was interesting to see what two different takes on the same die could do! Click below to watch how I create the card from start to finish.
