Circular Easel Cards

Well folks, if you know me you will know that I like to experiment to push ideas a bit further when I find something that I like and I LOVE Easel cards -Karen got me hooked (thanks chuck).

I got myself some round scalloped nestabilities from Charmed Cards and Crafts the other day and you know what, they are perfect for making round easel cards. Take a look at what I came up with..

I did some very fiddly paper piecing here but I think it was worth it because it brings it all together.

Slightly fuzzy side view next:/
Here's another...

Do you like them? They're quite easy to make and to prove it I'm going to do you a video tutorial....just as soon as I buy the camera lol.

Papers used for these two cards;
Basic Grey 6x6 pads -'Max and Whiskers' and 'Marjolaine'

Digital images and papers are all from Charmed Cards and Crafts

Well I've decided to try selling some of my cards on ebay, so I'm off to list these now. If you are interested, here is the link

I'm back!

Helloooooooooooo is there anybody here? I bet all my blog fiends have forgotten this Blog...can you believe I haven't posted since September? Well I have moved house in that time so I guess that's a bit of a reason :)
Well I'm back now and soon you'll be sick of me.
Here's a card I made for Dottie'S World ....
I don't have a Valentine's card to show you because I haven't made one (shock horror) my partner and I agreed not to DO Valentines day....I'm just praying he isn't planning on surprising me (eek).

Anyway what I have been making is a thank you card for a very special little girl, I hope she likes it.

Samirah loves the Pixie Chicks so I made her a nice tall easel card with one. I wanted to start experimenting a bit more with easel cards, I really like them and I think their boundries are waiting to be pushed...get ready for the circular easel card....and a video! Yikes I can't believe I just said that!
I'll be back!
