Making Cards

One day I got out my stamping supplies and did some “Thinking of you” cards.  It was great fun to stamp, watercolor and use glitter glue.  I use watercolor pencils and then a water brush…it practically makes you think you are an artist!  Watercolor paper is a must for this project.

I ran out of all ocassion cards with flowers on them so I am in the process of making some of those too.

I still have a glut of paper in my desk so the card making will continue. ( I might be a paper hoarder…but I don’t have to go to town when I need a piece of paper! ) I have not purchased a card in years.  The fancy edge is made with a border cutter…it is fun to use. The fancy corner is made with a corner punch…mine happens to be a Fiskers but there are many kinds out there.

My desk is a mess and it will be until I am done with this project.

  1. I like this idea...must give it a try. I say, "Send more cards" with an envelope and stamp ! Less text messaging....

  2. Card sending is becoming a thing of the past - easier to use the computer/smartphone. I personally still send cards for every occasion. I feel it is more personal that way. Wish I was as creative as you are and could make my own. You have a special talent and knack for such things. Have a great weekend.

  4. You are an artist for sure! Your cards are beautiful! That overnight storm missed us here in "the cities", but schools are closed further south for sure.

  5. I love making cards. Yours are sure pretty. It gives one a nice feeling to send something made and not bought and carry on a tradition to send cards thru the mail. Hugs, LJ

  7. I am going to look for some of those edge makers. The edging is beautiful. We had 70 degrees yesterday, a record high. We have had an unusual February, very little snow.

  9. Several of my friends make cards, and I have an edge/border punch to make plain notecards into something a little nicer.

    Still snowing lightly after dumping 10+inches of excellent snowman snow. I hope the storm moves on soon.

  12. I have those water colour pencils too but I seem to forget to use them. Also have the fancy corner punch which I also neglect to use.

  14. I was gifted once with a box of your homemade cards, or maybe I won a giveaway, I don't remember now, but I sure did love those cards. I used them (since they were blank inside) for anything I needed one for, and I know you make great ones! Glad to know you're still doing it. :-)
