Handmade Cards

Do you need some more inspiration for making cards?

Here's some!

As you probably know by now, I like recycling cards. Everything on the front of this card came from another one!

I also really like using Forever Friends papers. (No, I'm not being paid to say this!)
They're just so cute. :)

This card also uses Forever Friends paper, as well as lots of ribbon.

For this one, I used a Forever Friends stamp, and then coloured it in using Whispers pens.

Here's one last card, with my latest painting on.
Pansies are one of my favourite flowers, and purple is my favourite colour, so I'm especially pleased with this painting.

I hope you're feeling inspired now, get creating!

  1. I love to recycle cards too -- especially at Christmas time! I'm just starting and my creativity has a LONG way to go. It's a good thing my family likes being my guinea pigs! LOL!
