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.
