I've been busy as a beaver, holding workshops all over the place and getting ready for my biggest craft fair of the year, Maranatha College on November 6th! I made over fifty cards in one day last week--WOW!
I came back and revisited these Sense of Time monochromatic cards after I opened a package from my darling grandma. She is getting rid of her sewing stuff, and she sent me her entire button collection--a huge vintage cookie tin full!
I had so much fun pawing through them. Some of them are really little bitty works of art. I pulled out some of the really special ones to have my friend Judy incorporate into the beautful Kanzashi Bloom hair clips she makes. And there were a lot of simple small ones, so I added them to some cards for a collage look, too.
As always, I dig out some retired favorites to play with when I am making craft fair items. Here's another monochromatic card, done with Classic Pickups. All of the cards benefit greatly from Newsprint DSP pieces. I've mentioned the world map pattern before, and used the musical notes paper on Christmas cards. It just adds SO MUCH to a project! Love it!
All of these items, except the retired stamp, are available to view and purchase at my shopping website, www.lyssa.stampinup.net Happy Shopping!
