Flakes

These cards are all available for trade! I made a whole page of snowflakes, using a Sakura Micron pen, and used blue chalks to shade them. I then cut the page into cards...It took me FOREVER to do (over an hour and a half) but I was very pleased with the end result!

A River


River, originally uploaded by sapphire252.

I made this card quite some time ago, for my cousin's wedding. It is still one of my favourites! I like the way the layout worked...

Vintage Angel Swap

Here are all the cards I made for the swap. I was surprised with how much I liked them once they were done. Vintage is not usually my style, which is why I had so many vintage angel stickers laying around!

Happy Heart

I liked this one so much, I think I may make it into a bookmark for myself!

Guardian Angel

I liked the antique burgundy pen on this one.

Life Is A Window

For a Vintage Angel Swap. I tried to do some collages, but I was not happy with them. So I went back to my usual style, and I liked the results! A great way to use some old stickers...

Ha Ha Halloween


Ha Ha Halloween, originally uploaded by sapphire252.

For a swap -
It was supposed to be about the HUMOR of Halloween - quite a challenge...so I decided to go the CORNY route...It ended up being A LOT of fun, and I was really happy with how they turned out! The kids really liked these, too.

collage cards


collagecards, originally uploaded by sapphire252.

Here are some cards that were done with the technique listed below...I drew an entire page of designs (with a sharpie marker), coloured them in and embellished with a gold paint pen. Then I cut the page into ATC size cards. I am quite pleased with the results, and have several cards available for trade!

love letters


loveletters, originally uploaded by sapphire252.

Another pattern that will be cut into cards. Sometimes it is much easier to sit with a full sheet of paper, and just doodle away. As long as the pattern is small enough, and detailed enough, this technique works very well.

granny's wallpaper

I made this page to cut into ATC's (Art Trading Cards). It think the pattern looks like old fashioned wall paper...
