Quietfire Cards


These cards are also going into the 120 card order, but since they are made almost exclusively with Quietfire and SU, I decided to give them their own post. The blue marble paper is from WalMart (as is the yellow marble paper). This flower paper was from Michaels in a big paper pack… I loved the color scheme (as it’s close to Affectionately Yours from SU),  but I got more paper for a bit less money :). The butterflies are die cut from Recollections Shimmer White cardstock/paper, and are from SU.  The Celebrate and Thinking of You are from Quietfire Designs.. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Suzanne’s calligraphy… always have since I discovered her for myself 🙂  I did One Sheet Wonders again, and I got 14 cards from each sheet of paper. I did use a HA flourish stamp on some of the blue marble paper cards, just to add a bit of interest.

Thanks for stopping by 🙂



Big Card Order


OK, so I have to make 120 cards for a 12 box, 10 cards per box order.. so here’s picture 1 of some of the cards I’ve done.. not all of these will go into the boxes, as I need to replenish my stash as well.  All three sets were done as One Sheet Wonders. I think I made between 10-14 cards per sheet of patterned paper (some cards were already delivered when I took this picture).  I used SU  exclusively for the yellow marbled cards, a combination of  SU  and Newton’s Nook Designs for the purple and brown card sets. I have 3 sets down, I need to do 3 sets this month, then 2 a month til the end of June.

Thanks for looking, have a great day 🙂



More Christmas cards

I’ll keep this simple.. these are some more Christmas cards that I’ve done. Some were from a retreat I went to at the end of October, some I did on my own.  I’ve been happily busy making a pile of Christmas cards for orders, so it explains why  my blogging has still been sporadic.

Christmas Card Order


I had posted my One Sheet Wonder critter cards on Facebook, and got an order for a dozen kitty cards.. So here they are. Yes, I know that there are a couple of extras, but if the client has a preference, she can choose.  All stamps are Newton’s Nook Designs, patterned paper is Echo Park (I think), cardstock is SU Cherry Cobbler, Recollections 110lb white, and Neenah Super Smooth white in 80lb weight.

All the images were coloured in Copic markers, and Stickles and shimmer were added.Some of it is hard to see.

Thanks for coming by 🙂

Newton’s Nook and SU Christmas cards

All the images here, except the elf, are Newton’s Nook Designs, from their Holiday Smooches and Newton’s Christmas Cuddles sets. All coloured in Copic markers. The Elf is SU, from the Christmas Cuties set, which is now retired. The background paper is Echo Park (really old stuff I’ve had for ages). I matted the images and paper on some SU Cherry Cobbler cardstock, which was a perfect match 🙂
