Part of the clean up!

Yes, it is!
You see, there were all these sets of papers and freebies that come with magazines and they are too good to not use up, and they begin to pile up!

Here are two sets of cards made

The first set was pretty papers and a stamp by Rose Studio called Blackberry Lane
I stamped it out five times, coloured it with Copics and used the very pretty papers to make four cards and one bag to carry them in.  All the card used is SU unless stated.  The bag is a repurposed Kaiser carry bag. 

The cards were made following the suggestions in the mags and I didn't want to have to think - where there were no items in my stash to match, I just found something similar. Yes, I am lazy. 

The circle card required a hand-cut circle - stamped sentiments are from various SU sets.

I haven't used this die cut frame before so wanted to experiment with it - the flowers are mostly Prima.

I tried to use my hand held machine but the tension has gone and it didn't behave at all, so my stitching is very dodgy!

The second set was from the Nitwit Collections set in the Creative Magazines gift. It had a lot of die cuts and some pretty papers.

I made a box to hold the cards and it has nine cards in it and there is still some stuff left over. Again, I mostly followed the suggestions in the magazine by Mel Joyce. 

I used commercial blank black cards, and just layered stuff on! I did raid my lace stash a bit!

One card is missing from here and I didn't bother going back and photographing it. It is in the oranges rather than pinks and I used some Crystal Effects on one of the items so it was drying when the rest were being photographed!

Again, SU stamp sets of varying kinds for the sentiments, if there are any.

So, some gift sets to give away or sell, and some mess and piles off the tables!

Wonderful. I need to clear some die cuts etc when I pop the sewing machine away!
