Out Of Fashion!

I'm not an avid follower of fashion, be it clothes or crafty stuff. So when I choose to do something new in my crafting session it usually means the technique has been around for months, maybe even years! 
And  so it was today, when I decided that I would make a new design of card for me, that the writing was on the wall for that technique. Easel cards have had their day!

I do so love stamping. It's my favourite card-making technique and I enjoyed all the stamping this card entailed this afternoon. I used a Tim Holtz Distress ink pad, Graphicus hydrangea stamp, 'Happy Birthday' stamp from I know not where (it's that old), and had a play with my Cuttlebug and Spellbinder dies.
I enjoyed making this style of card so much that I made two more.........

A paler blue version and .......

............ an in-your-face
Cranberry version.

(with another Graphicus stamp).

So, you have all been warned. It is now too late to make easel cards. They are out-of-fashion as of today!


  1. It's lovely to see the two different versions. Definitely a great new style.

  2. Very pretty cards - I love the "in your face" one!

  3. what gorgeous cards...I can't decide which is my or cranberry?
