    Making Cards - Ideas for a card craft beginner (Part 3) 4th Aug 09 at 11:21 AM
    Welcome to the Card Craft thread where there are many members who are new to card making as well as the more experienced members who love helping others out on their path to making cards. If you are new to this craft please do post and somebody will be along with some advice for you

    Please note this thread is now a continuation of an original thread on making cards - Part 1, and the second thread - Part 2 it may be a good idea to look these first for advice

    LOL thanks but mostly health stuff I can't do anything about right now

    It's just then that people decide to dump things on you isn't it? Twice today I have been laying in bed while someone at the other end of the phone sapped my strength ... my fault I guess I neglected to mention I felt so poo...

    ....the screaming reference was sposed to sound like a petulant child like that one in Just William... I'll thcweam and thcweam until I'm thick hehe... not a cry for help hehe

    Nothing wrong with me that a few days chill won't fix but thanks When I'm up to it going to do a marathon colouring in session with Little Myz.... of a small proportion of the 10 million stamped images craftygranny sent us

    .....we *love* her ... she should be SuperGran hehe....

    Nighty night time for bed... *more ninja hugs for everyone before I go*

    Just to let everyone know that www.sillymonkeycrafts.co.uk has got some aqua promarkers in for just 18p in their silly sale! There is also some faux lead glass paint for the person who was asking about peel offs the other day.

    Sorry I haven't been around for a bit but I had a load of work to get through and the house is being completely overhauled. Hopefully once Emily starts nursery and things settle down I can do some more crafting to show you!

    Hope everyone is ok

    Aww I wish I had red hair!! ... OH can get quite ginger and when DD was born the first thing I said when I saw her was Oh no she hasn't got red hair!! lol my mum will never let me live that down!
    Just to add I would never charge people off here for stamped images. I will happily send them to anyone that wants them lol ... I aint that evil, I am just trying to make a few pennies. They are listed now so fingers crossed I will sell some, but then I am also hoping I don't get loads on one night

    My ebay is here Furry http://shop.ebay.co.uk/tiers4rears/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_from=&_ipg=

    My random items of selling but hey they bring in loads of money for me £233 worth of sales in the last 30 days

    I am home..

    Thankyou everyone for your well wishes.. Im VERY achey and have abit of a headache with anesthetic. Ive read the threads today but cant remember half of what ive read a job for tomorrow i think

    I really want to stamp my new magnolias, but not sure i will be able to one hand stamp :confused: I still might try later ... What a great day for them to arrive, just when i needed cheering up ... The naughty spendy elf bought me a lovely set of nesties this morning... I was 5 minutes late for hospital ( had to be there at 11.30 ) Serves me right for ringing telling Rusty to go track down her postman

    Furrypig. Thankyou for the beautiful card that arrived this morning too xx

    Right off to put my feet up xx

    Okay I need someone (o loads of u!!) to explain to me why promarkers are so fab! I bought whispers pens after watching PLM's tutorial on how to use them and really like them if I use them with an aqua brush. Why are promakers so good and do you just colour with them or is it more complicated?? I think they are prob better for skin tones than the whispers but need to know more. I like simple so promarkers may help me!!

  • paddingtondoo
    Just a thought rusty - can you squeeze Tilda into your listing title as I search for that rather than magnolia as I can never remember that bit?

    When I started cardmaking years ago I used to stick a silver outline peel off to acetate and colour in the middle with Sakura Gelly Roll Glaze pens. I framed the image and mounted with 3d foam pads onto a card blank. It looked really pretty, sort of stained glass window-esque but I am too in love with papers now to do anything with pens and peel offs
