Handmade card: dots

One from my drawer of handmade cards…made with a gelli print. For some reason I hardly ever tend to pick yellow and/or red in my crafts… My swap partner likes Spring and I think this matches the theme.

Swap: Themed ATC April

This month requires diamond and daisy… I stamped the daisies on a light blue background and colored them with acrylic paint. On a piece of transfer paper I stamped the words and little gem. Stitched it on with glitter thread and added a little bit of glitter to the gem also. Turned out neat, if I may say so myself…

Swap: add a butterfly

Create a piece of mail art with a butterfly… I first had a different idea and wanted to make a mixed media postcard. But this butterfly stamp caught my eye and I remembered the technique I have used before on ATC’s… so I went for that and dres the butterfly. Enjoyed working on this!

Handmade cards

Every couple of months two of my sisters and I plan a creative day… we pick a technique and spend a day playing together… so did we today… We always send each other a handmade card with something we have created. Today we worked with our gelli plates. The idea was to print package tape but we ended up doing so much more. I ended up using the tiny rectangle gelli plate. So fun to create such tiny pieces of art! I decided to make my card with two of those pieces and this is the result. On the picture you see the top of the envelope above the card.
