I have managed to upload my recently made cards. I still have to write about how I have made them. Time flies....it's unbelievable how time flies. I had hadly have any time to do other things today. Since I am on holiday, I shouldn't really complain but I wish I could have done much more. I will try to finish this blog later on tonight.

The inside of the card:I have used the Floral shoe stamp and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder. I really like this stamp as it is very different and quite unique.I have also used clever cut stamps which gives a vintage feel to this piece of work as vintage is one of my favourite theme. I had some Blue Cardigan design sheet (BCD047- impressionist quote) which I have used as layers.They are quote about artists and Art. I have used a piece with the lettere T as my name starts with T as well.I dont think you could see it on this picture but on the right hand side, I have used versamark ink and chalk to reveal a butterfly stamp.These pages here are the techniques I enjoy working with and the quote about the artists represent the other side of me, my artistic side. I have also included so brads as they are easy to use but yet very effective. They can be an embellishment on their own.

This is another wedding card I have made using See D's stamps. The heart border was stamped twice by linking them together and Ive coloured in my images using Whispers brush markers. The pull out card is pearlescent card mounted onto silver card. The pocket is made from some kind of net paper. I cannot remember where Ive got them from but I do remember there was some word splash associated with it. Simple and quick make card.
I have been feeling a bit tired lately....I had so much to do this week and managed to do only one card which I havent taken a pic yet. I had my Cardmaking club today at work and there was 9 girls in all doing it now. They were really excited and they learned very fast the stamping technique and some even made a card today itself. Since I have them for an hour(2:30-3:30pm), I tend to be quite laid back but they worked really fast. By 3:20, they were ready to pack up and clean the mess. And they put everything in a folder to continue next week, they were brilliant.
I had the good intention to do some cards tonight but ended up sorting my cards out! sometimes I spend time sorting boxes out then doing work. Its one of those days today.Anyway I will be doing some cards tomorrow.

I just cannot stop playing around with my new stamp.....I wanted to try a black and white, retro version. This is what I have achieved.I think this is a beautiful stamp which is so versatile. I will be adding a few more as Im off to watch a movie....
