Finally! A day to breathe!

Weekends are so much more appreciated when you have to work all week! I was able to scan all my new cards and Aqua postcards this morning, so now i can share them with you. My friend Therese came to visit in August and she was a great help in getting me back into card making. I used to make cards all the time, but I've been doing so many other things recently, it's like I have forgotten how! Therese brought her Cuttlebug and embossing Folders for me to play with - I've never done these before, it was fun! I had recently read online that a pasta machine, set at #2, could be used with the Embossing Folders, so of course, we had to try it. Worked like a charm! So I now have a bunch od cards using the embossed backgrounds that we made.

For this one I rubbed ink on the embossing folder

This one uses an ATC I made in July

You can't see the background in this one, but it's there!

This was my first one

This one I rubbed Distress ink on the raised portions after I ran it through

Another one using an ATC, great use for those ATCs that are hanging around!

And now for my Color Postcard group - I am very late with these, I should have done them at the beginning of August! The theme is Aqua, and I had to get them done quickly, so everyone is getting the same card this time. The seahorse stamp is the only stamp I have ever designed myself, and got made into rubber. It is sold at my local stamp store, Marchant's.

This postcard is for my DD, i used one of my blue Moo cards for this one. I like the bling, and hopefully she will too, though she isn't a real bling kind of gal! I also used the raised dots on this one, although you can't really see them, on the edges of the Indian patterns.

I have also made an Asian Love Book for Altered Pages, and it is sold as a kit. You can see it here.
That's all for now, hopefully I will get some time in my art room this weekend!
