1  Re: Crafted Notecards Round 3 GALLERY! in The Swap Gallery by blupaisan on: August 23, 2014 05:40:58 PM
got a great package from flygirl88.
here are some extra tags to show off first...

plus some smaller nautical cards. i feel terrible that my camera is at the other place! please, Leah, if you have superior pics do post!

seriously elegant compass cards. I have no idea how these were made. i cannot believe they were hand done!!  They look so professional. How am I gonna send out such gorgeous things?

my alltime fave group.... i totally squeed when I saw these next ones...

Not only are they nautical, but are way vintage! I love love the edging around them that makes them look old. and the fact that the words are done to look a bit faded. Wow, Leah, you hit the nail on the head with these cards. There is no way I can part with one of each.
thank you so much.

jenleahlynn made this ocean themed card. I have forgotten the words she used to describe her technique, but I agree with her that it turned out looking a lot like underwater seaweed. So pretty.
And her daughter created this one!!

Fantastic!!  A creature I would love to see in 'person'.

An extra for my cats theme.

Words by T S Eliot.  Awesome card.

thanks so much, jenleahlynn (and daughter!!)

My life is totally nuts just now so I am waaaay behind in posting cards.
I will do this one before I dash off the the next obligation...
from Sammylouise40, theme of Natural Elements.

This cow is being taken for a ride with a tornado. I love it! I love humor and this really made me laugh. I have had weird dreams about having a tornado 'seek me out' and harrass me. it is a  scary dream. Guess I know how this cow feels.
Thanks so much Sammylouise40 and so sorry it took me ages to post.

Onyxnox made me some wonderful cards!  I am very much in love with one design in particular which I will post first...

I feel like I am back in the 70s again when I look at this. Just gorgeous!!  so so many cheerful layers.

Tigers! exquisitely colored!  She payed such attention to extries like putting the stamp inside the card.

kitties!  made me squeee

Vintage sewing. Another super squee.  gosh, I love these!
And inside...

What a pro she is. I was very very lucky to have her as my partner.
Thank you so much, Onyxnox!!

LadybugsAndBumblebees made me some dynamite crocheted items... first up, a huuuuge bag

Inside tag... so adorable and clever!

exquisite clutch with fantabulous button!!

tag again. Every time I look at this I will think of her!

Two of the coolest storage bottles I have ever seen. showing one open, one sealed.

she also made me a soap saver of this same favorite color of mine, a white cloth which I am using in the shower, and an entire bag filled with paper and stickers, much of which got used for a recent swap I mailed out today. Oy, I needed them! My mother, age 84 in a nursing home, will love many of the stickers. Also, LBABB knew my mom smiled and laughed at windup toys I bring there so she got me two new ones!  I wish I had not been so hasty in missing taking pics of the other items, but my work schedule is soooo crazy this week and it just could not happen.
I am pleased as punch with what she made me and this Craftster is amazingly talented. Thank you so very much!!

I love all the additions. I'm so sorry blupiason the large butterflies came off the small shrines. I didn't know if they would make it. :-(  . if you have better close ups of the District buttons, can you post? I used the tablet camera and it doesn't have a macro.

some pics...

Hunger Games shrine. Knew nothing at all about the book or movie, did some research, then had to turn this dark subject into a Whimsical Shrine.

had a blast!

wood base shaped like book and  opened like book.

i would join a shrine swap again.

lovesclutter mailed a massive package to me and I feel totally spoiled.
she made one large shrine, two small, and a beautiful framed art cat.
small ones...

adorable!! With  clever stand on the back to keep them upright
The big one...

She caught all of my faves... turquoise, cats, nature!

that last pic shows the light!!
And my fave part about the light is the glowing cat eyes!!!

And soooo many wonderful extras, total spoilage!!

o   m    g   , that vintage Avon owl!! I am so in love!

thank you so much, lovesclutter ! It is all so beautiful and you nailed my themes so well. Plus, I love that it involved recycling and reusing.

Actually got to meet LadybugsAndBumblebees this weekend! We had a blast and she arrived with a massive gift bag chock full of goodies. Here I will post just what her niece Mercades made for me (how thoughtful!)

This wee ceramic kitty was painted with such care and skill! I have named her Punkin' and she now lives in my spider plant (which my plant tells me is awesome.)
Also, she created these clay kitties.

Adorable twins!!  I was told that the baking was difficult to control, thus the 'burnt' edges but much to my delight it makes them look like Siamese kitties, which is very significant to me, because a Siamese just moved next door to me and I go for a walk just to see her dance across the front yard to greet me.
Thank you soooo much, Mercades. I think you rock as a Craftster!  It made my heart sing that you made something for me and you do not even know me.  Hugs!!

So, I really hopped on that bandwagon!
I used some paper I scrounged from a packing box that was on its way to the dumpster at work. I said to myself, 'that does not belong in the dumpster...that belongs in my craft stash!'
