Cards made Sat 09 Feb 08

Last night I made the following two cards:

Brown with Pink - Cover

Brown with Pink - Inside lying down

Brown with Pink - Inside standing up

Pink with Brown

Pink with Brown - Inside lying down

Pink with Brown - Inside standing up

I do not actually have this stamp, I borrowed it from a friend. However, I have ordered this stamp from my craft supplier, Lana of K.I.S.S. These two cards were CASED/Inspired by Robyn Jones. I'm thinking of giving on to my mum for her birthday and another to a friend as a "Thinking of You".

Out of the two cards, I much prefer the Brown with Pink rather than the Pink with Brown. It was fun doing these and seeing how using the same colours but reversed gives a different effect. I do plan to make a few more of these, so will stamp up some more images before giving the stamp back to my friend.

Cards_R_Us February 2008 Card Sketch Template Challenge

On the weekend I posted the February 2008 Sketch Card Challenge for yahoo group "cards_r_us". This sketch was taken from Becky Fleck's sketches. I really like this one, I think it has a lot of potential. This is the sketch that I think will work well with my Hanna Stamps used in the bookmark swap, as mentioned in my earlier post. Here is the sketch for anyone wanting to give it a go:

Cards_R_Us Jan 08 Swaps

I'm running a little late in getting my last 2 yahoo group "cards_r_us" January 2008 swaps out. I've already done my ATCs, see Australia Day blog entry, but as yet I haven't posted them to my partner. Tonight I made my "Precious Paper" card swap and my "Celebrations" Bookmark swap.

"Precious Paper" Card swap
My "Precious Paper" was Japanese Paper given to me for Xmas

"Celebrations" Bookmark swap
My "Celebrations" theme is Xmas.
First time using one of my Hanna Stamps.

I'm really happy with how these both turned out. I'm going to use my bookmark design to make some Xmas cards. I have a good sketch template that I think it will work well against.
