woyww - making cards

Relaxing and making cards.  Desk a little messy with cardstock, ribbons and a few of the watercolour stamping flowers .  This is a technique I always use when I want to make some pretty cards.  Great for birthdays, sympathy or thank you cards.  Every time I make a batch they get used quickly.
A close up of the almost finished card.  Still room to put on a sentiment and then I move on to the next.  Probably time to think of Xmas cards and not leave it to the last minute!!!  I do like to kid myself.
Off to see the wonderful world of Julia's woyww.

  2. Love those cards - I am just doing a watercolour course and was surprised to find how quickly a picture can come together - might try some on cards myself, as for Christmas its not time for that yet is it??

  10. I have a few of those stamps myself Sandra and as you say they are really pretty. What I like about them is you don’t have to add very much more to make a beautiful card, as you’ve done here.

    Happy Crafting!

  16. Just love the style, I too have a few stamps that are really good for this technique, must dig them out again. The cards you're making with them are so pretty. Christmas?? I've been ready for months, lol!! Must get on and make the Christmas cake though!

  17. I have one of those cards in that style that you sent me, you need to get a better camera because those images DO NOT do your work justice. I used the ornate frame thing you sent me to make arms and a hat for an art doll, thank you so much, it was perfect.

  19. Very pretty. I am in card-making mode at the moment too - not a place I really want to be, but have decided to make my mum a set of birthday cards for her to give away next year - difficult to think of Christmas pressies for 90 year olds. Happy WOYWW, Shoshi #85
