This afternoon I cleared away most of my Christmas card making items - stamps, inks, cards etc & so one part of my craft room is a whole lot tidier. I still have one card to finish - the one for my DH.
I also sorted through the various magazines I have collected over the last couple of months - taking out any articles that are of interest & that also cleared a space in the craft room. Who knows if this continues I could have a really tidy craft room to start the New Year with.
Before I show you a couple of my recent cards I would like to say a very big thank you to all of you who gave me a Christmas card. They are all absolutely beautiful & it was lovely to see some of the techniques & styles we have tried throughout 2016 used in many of them. They look really lovely all round my dining room.
Now, here are 2 more of my recent creations;
The Card-io stamps were well & truly used this Christmas & as I have a selection of everyday stamps I can see this use will continue into birthday cards.
This is one of the card designs that I call clean & simple, that I have created. The bauble is a die & I used Fired Brick Distress Ink to add the colour around it. The border stamp was also stamped using the same ink - it was apart of a freebie set recently. The corner designs were also part of that freebie set & the angel was one of a freebie set last year. The corners & the angel have been embossed with gold EP.
I think I still have some designs to show you - so will probably show them over the weekend.
Have a lovely weekend.
'Bye for now.
