Cards - again!

So, I think I have to accept that I'm enjoying making a few cards again at the moment. I think it's because the quirky digi images from Vera Lane make it easy to do a quickie card with a gelli printed background from my stash (and I do have rather a large stash!). Anyone would think I have an association with VL but, honestly, I don't! I just like several of their images.

I made a couple of Thank You cards and a couple of Birthday cards, all for my Oriental craft group:

The card below uses an image from Onyx Expressions, sadly no longer in business:

And, because I liked the clean lines of the above card I used the same format for my Father-in-Law's birthday card (it's so hard to come up with new ideas for the older generation in the family each year but you can't really go wrong with Elvis can you?!)

That's it for today folks, thanks for looking; I'll be back soon. I'm 'planning' on being more active on my blog this year, can't promise anything but I can have a plan!

Christmas and New Year Stuff

During December I made a few Christmas cards just for close family and friends, some of which I actually remembered to photograph/scan. I keep forgetting that vital step recently, usually remembering just as the card goes into the post box!

Here are a couple I did remember to take photos of - the first background is done with Distress Oxides and the second is a gelli print; the images are from Vera Lane Studios on Etsy.

And here are are some New Year's cards, the last two for ladies in my Oriental craft group hence the nod to 'oriental' with the text stamp in the background. Top background is a gelli print, the others are done with Distress Oxides (you'd never believe these are my two favourite ways of doing backgrounds .....!!) :

Thanks for looking!

I'll be back soon ;)
