Two Shows For Me!

Hi everyone,   I have just been told that I am not only doing the wildflower show on Create and Craft on Wednesday, but I am also doing a second show that day too!  Since Sheena is on a short holiday this week, they have asked me to do a Spellbinders nestability show as well.  This is a first, my first Spellbinders show and my first time doing two shows in one day.  Ususally I do a show about once a month so for me to have two shows in one day is big!  Although I haven't had much notice, I  have been hard at work making samples for these shows (which means I haven't had too much time to play with the new stamp sets.  Those new stamps are just sitting on my table staring at me and laughing!! Soon, I hope, soon!)  The wildflower show is set for noon and the Spellbinder show is scheduled for 3pm. 

I did say that I haven't had  a lot of time, but I have had a little time to play and I managed to make a few more military cards and one card from our yet unreleased religious stamp sets. 

I was rather pleased with my religious card as I was able to make it look like a miniature Bible by stamping it on vellum four or five times, cutting it out and curling the pages slightly and  layering it like a book.  I've included a pic showing the side view so you can see what I'm talking about.  I used a small piece of satin ribbon to make it look like a bookmark and edged the pages using a gold paint pen.  I know that both the military stamps and the religious stamps are more specialised but I think it is very difficult to find stamps to fill those needs.  I am hoping that you like these designs and even if they aren't for you, you might know someone who would enjoy these.  What do you think?  I've got to get back to my show prep.  All for now, Sue x

looking forward to the shows Sue. Not sure about the religious stamp - but it will fit someone's bill so a useful one to have. Really like the military sets. Good even for those not in the forces - just good macho sets. Good luck with the shows, Best Wishes.

Hi Sue

the samples look great, hope it all goes ok, I'm sure you will be fine as always. How come you have space on your table for stamps to sit, a rarity for a crafter lol

Keep up the good work Jayne xx

I love the bible card. Sometimes those are just the perfect ones! Everyone needs speciality cards on occasion. I'm always looking for more thoughtful "thinking of you" kind of cards. I don't care for the generic ones I see in stores.

Mary Lou said...

Blessings

Lovely cards, the bible/vellum idea is one that I will certainly use in the future.

Two lovely cards Sue. I do like the Bible card as it is hard to find nice religious cards & this fits the bill. The military one is great too.

Amanda said...

Both card are great! Love the religious card just a tad bit more :-)
