Shuffle, Shuffle: Finding Room for More Cards..

So every month when my box from Gossamer Blue arrives and I open it and begin to think about what I might make for my contribution to the blog, I tell myself  to come up with a plan which doesn't involve cards. Something new would be nice, Sian! But this time round I couldn't help myself. I looked at all the pretty new die cuts, all exclusive, all waiting to be gathered up and clustered and I made this:


I turned a blank journaling spot sideways to make a resting place for a butterfly and some flowers. Then I used a picture frame to give a home to a little pink bird:


and then I found his friend and another frame but also a stamp, which I used to mark out a stitching line.


Gossamer Blue found room for my cards and now I must find a space in my card drawer too. Or maybe I would be better finding a couple of stamps and a pillar box?

See you Monday!

I struggle with making cards, and then I see all your beautiful ones, and want to copy them all. So beautiful

Karen said...

Just lovely---all three. I agree they are too beautiful to be stashed away!

You are a crafting, card making, layout genius! Timing is everything, your brilliant idea about turning the label vertical has given me an idea of how I can use up a bunch of those die cut labels I had that were sitting in the pile of "??? to do with these". All the cards are lovely but my favourite is the first one with the butterfly & vertical label ... genius with a sigh of why didn't I think of that ...

Years ago, I started a card club with my friends. Each month, we'd get together and one person would design 2 cards. We'd make 5 of each. After a few years, we all had cards galore. So, we quit. I still have a ton of cards. I donated a ton too! Your cards are fun and fresh. It's nice to have them on hand.

Beautiful cards! Definitely need to be sent out and not put in a box!

They are gorgeous cards, you've made me want to hunt in my stash and create some myself!

That little bird looks very much at home in his frame. You certainly know how to make a cluster of embellishments work for you!

So fresh and pretty! I always admire your clever way with all those delicious little bits and pieces. It must be nice to have some ready for when you need them.
