Something new!

I embossed these leaves on vellum and machine sewn them to the card .
the dragonflies on these cards have been cute out and embossed, and then glued on for a 3d effect.
I have embossed this bear and colored it with colored pencil and put "glitter" in the wings. The wedding/anniversary card also has been embossed on the 'eyelet" and the bottom with the sunflowers.

Well I got an email from Clear Dollar Stamps saying they were looking for Design Team Members! And that you had to make up a few cards and submit them so they could pick out a few new members! Sooooo I have NEVER done anything like this before, both in trying out for a contest OR making cards! So thought I would give it a go ! I got a bit of encouragement from my MENTOR and buddy Vicky K and my fam and went ahead and gave it a go. Here are some that I made in the last few days! What do you think? Should I keep making albums and tins and give up the card business? ha I have always believed that you can do anything you set your mind too. And I have done about everything I have set my mind to too! From any art project to sheetrocking a bathroom...ive done it! So I decided to do the cards, mind not as confident in them as I was in the paper bag albums! ha But I gave it a go!

Thank you joy! It took me a few years to get to the point i am today with the paper bag albums, I just really looked at alot of paper bag albums on ebay and learned from other and then you do your own style. I just started the 12x12s too! So think positive and practice practice practice! ha
