2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Just some frames. Cards Again on: March 19, 2011 03:49:05 AM
I have been making Easter cards lately and I made these two to put "Happy Easter" in the middle of them but am now thinking it may not go well.
What do you think??
The first one I think, If I made the flowers red would go well for Christmas.

4  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / MORE EASTER CARDS!!! on: March 19, 2011 03:42:37 AM
Ok well these are some more sewn cards that i have made... they are sooo addictive..

It's strange that Ive taken up card making... I hate buying people cards because I know they'll just throw them away.. Also, I can only ever manage to put down the basic 'Happy (event of the day), Have a great Day, From Amber" ... So I'm not so great with words.

Sorry about the quality. The lighting wasn't great.

Hope you all like them!!


The Cross. I gave one like this for a baptism last week. but i think you could still use it for most christian/catholic etc holidays eg Easter




I like this one a lot. I think the sequins and beads on the egg add to it.




My favourite one so far (the bunny is throwing the eggs out of the basket!  Cheesy)




For the more religious type.




5  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / I want to make my mum something AMAZING on: March 14, 2011 08:50:42 PM
My mother is a wonderful woman and I think she is beautiful but hidden away in the hideous tent shirts, ill fitting pants and when she finds something that fits well it's almost always in a horrendous colour/pattern. There is a really cool shop called City Chic for plus size woman with really hot clothing that seem to fit well. Although, my mother is in her mid 40s and the clothes that City Chic offers (as beautiful as they are) are mainly for younger woman to go out in.
have a look at their clothes. >>>>

http://www.citychic.com.au/Home.aspx?element=1&category=1

I want to make her clothes that will fit her body shape well but I need help. I have a cousin who is the same size as my mum (an AUS size 16) and dresses beautifully (slightly conservative for her age I think, but perfect for my mum) but she is quite tall and my mother is only like 5'3 which makes it a little bit harder to balance out her body. She has a Bcup chest (boobies) most of the weight is in her stomach, she is willing to show her legs from about her knee, doesn't like to show her arms but will sometimes anyway.
I would really like something that gives her shape so she can feet good about herself Cheesy



Any ideas would be great because I'm really stuck on this one Sad

Just a couple more cards I did. Ive only done two... Rather slack I think.
Sorry about the second one. I haven't flattened them yet so I had to use my nailpolish to hold it down while I took the photo Tongue




7  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Sewn Cards. Tut for transferring pattern to card. on: February 22, 2011 05:43:28 AM
This is the kind of card you are doing:

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=373369.0

Ok, so transferring a pattern to a card is very simple.
You will need;
♥ your card
♥ your pattern
♥ a sewing needle
♥ something soft to put underneath your card
♥ Paper clips


Ok so first if you don't have a card, you can easily make one from a piece card (you can use paper but card is better for when you're sewing your pattern)
Fold your A4 piece of card  into 3 sections. I have cut off some of the bottom because I though it looked a little too long




Then you take your pattern and put it onto the middle section of the card and secure it with the paper clips




Then you place your 'something soft' (Ive just used a folded tea towel, but you can use thick felt or anything else you think would work) underneath your card and use your needle to make the holes where the pattern says.
I just use a normal sewing needle but my neighbour uses one of those knife kits with all the different blades? she takes out the blades and replaces them with a needle. That way she has a handle (it does make it much easier) BUT for those who don't have a knife kit thing and don't want to buy one, I got a great tip to put the needle into a cork and to use that as a handle Cheesy All I need now is the cork Tongue




When you think you've finished, hold your card up to the light to make sure you haven't missed any holes. If you have just poke them Tongue




And all you need to do now is do your pattern! Cheesy easy-peasy
(Don't stress if you think you wont be able to do the pattern. When you get them from the site the come with very detailed instructions Smiley )





I thought I would add just one more thing.
When you sew your pattern, DO NOT TIE KNOTS AT THE BACK WITH THE THREAD. It's not quite the same as sewing. All you do instead is tape the piece of thread down with some tape (As shown). Also, the reason for the 3 sections instead of the normal 2 is so you can fold the extra one over the back of the sewing and stick it down with double sided tape. That way no one will ever know Tongue

I LOVE this elephant card Cheesy

But i was thinking of maybe doing another two. One zebra and one lion, stick them in seporate frames (not sure why, but everything has to be in sets of 3 Tongue) and then give as a mothers day gift Smiley
what do u think?
