Being creative: Making more cards…

During my “down time” on Sunday, I was able to make a few more cards.



Here’s one of the simple cards that I made for my BF. You know something? I’ve had this stamp used to make this card for almost four years.

It’s the Berry Happy Hedgehog from the Clear Stamp collection. Remember when I mentioned that we said we would start sending each other hand-written letters? Well… we’ve kept our promise to each other.

This card was  very simple to make and it used one of my clear stamps that I adore. I also made a matching envelope. I wrote my note that evening and mailed it from work yesterday, he should receive it tomorrow.  I trotted off to finance office and paid them the .50 for postage. Last evening, the BF told me that he’d mailed me a card also. I should receive mine tomorrow also. Yeah!

This evening, I have another card to make and that will be for Jennifer. I received a letter from her on Sunday. I must say it was nice to receive a letter from my blogging pal. My cards are not as fancy as hers; however, I’ll have fun making hers and writing her a note.

While I enjoyed making the above card, I must say that I’m not happy with the pencils I used to complete the project. They were actually my daughters art pencils. They’re great, but I really miss markers. My daughter is a talented artist, but she much prefers sketching with pencils.

Because of that, I’m finally going to break down and purchase some Copics Markers. I’m looking at the set that has 36. They’re a bit pricey, at $136; however, I have heard nothing but good things about them… and you can purchase refills!

I also need to stock up on ink pads and perhaps a few more clear stamps? I’m quite fond of House Mouse designs, so I most likely will purchase a few of those.

I’m nudging you Jennifer! can you recommend some good brands for inkpads and perhaps some clear stamps? I have not purchased either in a few years.

Great creations! Lovely! Yup! Those are the mouse stamps I thought you were referring to! I have one of them that is cute I will have to see if I can find it. I will ponder the brands of stamps and other markers and send them as I find them. I know what you mean about the Copics I was so fascinated with them and still am but YES they are expensive. As for my favorite colored pencils I emailed you about them and will try and get more brand suggestions, soon, too! Thanks so much for the shout out 🙂
