Oriental Lady ATC

Here is an atc I did a swap the theme was oriental I used my lady stamp which I love with gold embossing powder and dab of stickles glitter glue - I just love embossing!
If you have not tried it why not have a go you will need a heat gun and embossing powder though, it is a bit tricky at first but there are things on the net to show you how to do it, I did it first time in a craft store when they had a demo, I used shrink plastic too which was fun.

Golden Anniversary card

I got an order for this golden anniversary card I had to get a friend to restore the photo so it was nice enough to use as the one the lady gave me was a proof and I had to use A3 card to fit it on so it was the biggest card I've made ever! It was complicated to do the insert and I thought I'd messed it up but as you know us crafters are skilled at covering over our mistakes so in the end it was good I just hope the lady thinks so too!

Flower Arranging

Last craft group we did flower arranging, one of the ladies did a course in past so she taught us all to do it. The lady in the fire station said they looked good enough to sell, we gave her one as a thank you gift.

Stacker card

This is my own design of stacker decoupage which I created using the brilliant cd 3d Card Builder 2 I can highly recommend it you can make your own backing papers and tiles and decoupage with your own pictures.
I used a picture of my gran for this card, I printed the backing directly onto the card first.
I highly recommend Alan & Barry's Crafts where you can buy this cd and many more card supplies

Flowers in Vase Pastels

I did this last night it's pastel pencils, it was supposed to be a copy from a card but I did not have the right colours so it's totally different, I don't like the black foilage but I had no brown, so it's off to shops Saturday for more pencils! I love pastels and they don't stink like the paints and so far I am hopeless with watercolour paints.

Earning some cash!

I would like to find a way of making either a dvd or cd for crafters in the hope of earning a bit of cash, due to illness I am unable to work outside the home but this could be an ideal way as I am building myself back up to working again after years of not working, though I have my card supplies business it has not done very well and I found it hard to buy stock in due to lack of funds plus the storage problem so a dvd/cd would solve that problem too. I have found this cd
which I think might be good as I could use my own pictures so no copyright problem and then I could either sell themn as sheets or on a cd perhaps.
If anyone has any ideas or advice please get in touch thanks.
