a few cards

So Proud: Prima patterned paper,Judi Kine Star stamp, alpha stamps, cardstock, brown Archiver's Ink and Faded Jeans Distress Ink

Some cards to show on this beautiful warm, sunny Sunday! I participated in another craft fair yesterday and it was a dud. I sold my cards and some other crafts and set up my dad's pen & ink drawing prints. He couldn't be there so it was just me. I sold exactly 7 cards. Between the table price and the parking meter I was still in the red. Oh well. I got some nice feedback on my cards anyhow and my dad got some nice comments on his art. And I finished sock #2 to complete my first official pair of socks! So it was succesfully in its own way! Later on I got to see my little sister's first apartment and have girl's night with my friends. The host's husband cooked us stuffed lobster tails he got while diving....mmmmm!

Here are a handful of cards I made more recently for the sale....I'll post more this week! I'm never good at keeping track of supplies but I'll do my best...

Several people stopped and kept looking at this first card but it didn't sell. I just got the stamp at my LSS's yardsale. I was thinking of my dad when I got it and this might actually become his Father's Day card.

On the Road: Great Impressions stamp, Making Memories word-fetti stickers, black Archiver's Ink

Very simple card. Using Distress and chalk inks and a new stamp I got. The sentiment stamp I love and have had for while...the idea was it could be for a new graduate.

Be the Change: flower stamp by Rubber Stamped, sentiment stamp by Rubber Soul, tumbled glass & shabby shutters Distress Inks, black Archiver's Ink,yellow chalk ink, misc. blue pattered paper and cardstock.

This card was fun and I was kind of experimenting with tone-on-tone embossing. So I stamped the large flower all over with Versamark ink and clear embossed them and then added the large K & Co. sentiment sticker. A wedding card...

Always & Forever: large floral stamp by Inkadinkadoo, K & Co. sentiment sticker, Versamark ink, clear embossing powder.

This card is one of my favorites. I cut out the large flower from patterned paper and using a glue pen I glittered each petal.

He loves me: unknown patterned paper, K&Co sentiment sticker, diamond glitter and glue pen.

This last one was very simple. Just stamped the flower and colored it in with my Prismacolor pencils and then stamped a sentiment.
Just for You: flower by saavy stamps, sentiment by Hero Arts, black Archiver's ink, Prismacolor pencils, cardstock.

I'll post a few more this week. Thanks for looking and Happy Sunday!

Your cards are great! I especially like the "So Proud" card, but all of them are really nice. It's hard to sell cards at craft shows -- I've tried also and even priced well they can be difficult to sell.
