so many cards so little time

hi world
i have been away for a few days this week, so the beginning of the week was
a zero crafting time. so at the end of the week i had to catch up and felt like making some cards. i was very impressed with joanne wardles one layer cards in craft stamper this month check out her blog
here  are the ones i made today

the stamps i used here are from elusive images. i have embossed the clock and sentiment with glossy black emb powder. the rest of the stamping is done straight onto the card .... brave eh! actually it was really quick 

the main stamp here is from crafty individuals my fab free stamps for re-newing my subs to craft stamper. only the frank mark is embossed with burnt redpowder from cosmic shimmer.

i have used various stamps here again the main one is from crafty individuals. i have embossed the butterflies onto vellum and cut out and just glued in the middle so it is raised.

i cannot remember who made this stamp except it is german and i got it at artisan last year, i have seen it used on quite a few blogs, it is a really useful stamp. again the frank mark is embossed with gloss black.

this isn't technically a one layer card as i have embossed the inage onto patterned paper and cut it out. i creased the fan to makeit look more ... fan like.
the chinese background stamp is from personnal impressions and the fan is from papermanis oriental collection. i made the stamp to go with it which i used on my mothers days cards (another day).
i really enjoy batch making so it's been a good day
it's nice to read comments so please leave one ta x x


  1. You have been busy! Lovely cards and those stamps from Craft Stamper are great.

  2. Very nice, retro feel. Love the frank stamp>

  3. Really good - love your cards. I too liked the article but haven't tried the technique yet. Great to be able to make flat cards and post them cheaply. I bought loads of stamps on Friday (for myself and for work) to get them ahead of the price rise so I'll be OK for posting things for a while !

  4. Great cards. Love the stamps you have chosen.



I'd love to know you have popped by so please leave a comment, they are much appreciated.
