We have come to the last in my series of Craft Fairs now. Today I am going to share with you the cards I made to sell. You have to have cards to sell now don’t you???? Time was limited so I couldn’t spend too much time on them. I had a number of Christmas cards from past classes so they were fine but I wanted some Different Occasions cards. I ordered a couple of packs of Notecards and Envelopes. With only 5 days to go from when I received the order I knew they needed to be simple and quick so I kept them to one layer cards. Well, I managed to create 40 cards in under 3 hours. Here they are. I have added full-size images so you can see them clearly.
I used the Butterfly Bigz die to cut some Butterflies from DSP. Some I added some Pearls but others I just kept plain. I added a sentiment with Black Staz On. (I use Black Stazon as I find it stamps better than the Basic Black inkpad).
Using DSP I punched out some birds with the 2-step Bird Punch and added a sentiment at the bottom again.
I created some simple cards with ‘Timeless Talk’ and various sentiments.
I went all out with colour on these ones. Here I have used the set ‘World Treasures’. I inked up Peacock in Daffodil Delight and then sponged randomly with Pumpkin Pie and Tempting Turquoise. Each one of these turned out differently. It’s funny how you got various colours when they mixed together. You know what they say: Blue and Yellow make green!! These were my favourite cards.
Here is a close-up.
So there you are. What has been your favourite project that I have showed you this week?? Maybe there are some great ideas for your next fair/market or even as gifts for a special occasion. I hope you have enjoyed seeing them. I am glad I have finally got to share them. If you are after more ideas check this post out that I did some time ago for another fete/fair that I went to.
Now I can go back to sharing some projects I have been making with products from the new catalogues coming out NEXT WEEK!! I am so excited for these.
Come back and visit me soon,
