Cards for Men

Hi Crafty Friends

Here are two more cards we made in class, at different times, but I thought I'd blog them together. They're both ArtKure stamps. They do beautifully detailed scenic stamps, which stamp really well. I'd order more from them, but I've had issues with them over deliveries/refunds so I'm wary of risking  it again. The first is Crail harbour in Fife, Scotland. I love it that it says what the place is. We just added a little colouring with DIs, so a fairly quick card to make.

Sadly this one doesn't tell you where this scene is. We stamped the image in black and then embossed it with clear powder before inking it with DIs. I've just realised that I put flag tails on all men's cards (I did it on the Wetlands card, too). Will have to try to avoid that on the next one.

Seems I stick to a blue/aqua/brown scheme too.  I guess for the next man's card I make I'll have to challenge myself to pick different colours and avoid flags (help!)

happy crafting

Three of a kind

Hi Crafty Friends
As usual, I've got very behind with posting our club cards. I'm going to try to catch up over the next few days. To start off, here are three variations on a theme. I love doing tile cards because I love all the opportunities for little embellishments. It was fun seeing how everyone pick-and-mixed all the elements of these cards

Happy crafting
