10 Quick Cards

Here's a little project I did for Cardmaking, Stamping and Papercraft a couple of months ago - it was for the 10 Quick Cards feature. I don't know about you, but I struggle with kids cards, so it's kind of cool to have ten cards made and ready to go (although I don't see why you couldn't use them for adults too!). I used the fun Darkroom Door Robots collection as well as a few odds and ends like ribbon, rhinestones and regular silver washers from the hardware store. Give this idea a go and stock up on your 2015 cards :-)

Paper - My Mind's Eye
Card - white
Embellishments - Darkroom Door Robot photochips, Darkroom Door Robot filmstrips, Darkroom Door Robot wordstrips, Darkroom Door Robot montage, Kaisercraft rhinestones, ribbon, brads, washers

No Greater Gift

I had such fun making this card for Cardmaking, Stamping & Papercraft. I mean, how glamorous are these ladies in their retro 1940s fashions? Love it! So, I wanted to do justice to the clothes and I didn't think watercolouring would work (although I did use my watercolour pencils on the accessories). Ultimately, I decided to raid my box of patterned paper off-cuts. I set aside the prettiest designs I cold find, stamped the ladies on the paper, and cut out the dresses. Granted, the intricate fussy-cutting was a little labour intensive, but I think the end result was well worth it. Tres chic!
