11  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Altered Ancestors project - 4 more pages done! on: March 03, 2011 09:52:04 AM
I'm still plugging away at the little fat book swap for the Tim Holtz Yahoo group. After these I have 3 more and a looming deadline. Smiley

Drama Queen
I love this guy. He's inspired me to do a "Theater and the Drama Queen" series on ATCs or cards.

The Hustler
Watch out for this card shark!

12  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Altered Ancestors Fat Book Swap on: February 25, 2011 10:48:21 AM
Here are 4 of 11 pages I'm doing for a swap in Yahoo. The pages are 4"x4" (left side is blank for binding), and we are to alter the old photos somehow.









Thanks for looking!

Cheers,
Susan
13  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Tag, You're It! on: January 12, 2011 09:06:28 AM
Hiya! This past December I was incredibly inspired by Tim Holtz and his 12 Tags of Christmas posts. I ooh'd and ahh'd and loved all over the techniques... but didn't try one single thing! Heh. I've finally gotten around to trying a tag, if not any of his techniques. I'll get there!



I love vintage. The tatting down the left side is vintage, found at an antique shop. ::swoon:: Everything else is new, from the My Mind's Eye/Lost and Found/Union Square paper line. The metal bits and bobs are from a variety of sources. All together, it feels vintage-y to me!

Cheers,
Susan

Hiya! Thanks for a fun challenge. Hope I'm eligible as a "newbie". If not, I'll catch the next one!

This is my favorite card made this last year. She marks my best Tilda* stamped card ever (I've made a ton) and the end of all-Tilda-all-the-time (er... I've made a ton of Tilda cards). I used bits and pieces of greenery from saved gift tags and tried a new stamping technique on the ticket. Smiley



*Tilda is the given name of all female stamps from Swedish stamp company Magnolia.

Cheers,
Susan
15  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Greeting Cards on: January 04, 2011 09:43:42 AM
Hi there! I'm new to Craftster and learning my way around. Smiley I make keepsake embellished greeting cards with stamped images or printed vintage images. Most of my cards are easel-style so they sit on a shelf proudly. I adore crocheted lace and snatch up vintage lace whenever I find it.... then I hoard it and use stuff I found at Joann's. *grin* I'd love to share a few cards if you don't mind.

This is a vintage-inspired card made in November. The printed vintage image was enhanced with Stickles glitter glue and a crackle paint. The crocheted lace is sewn on. (I sew on most -if not all- my cards.)


This is a good representation of my 3D character cards. This little lady is called Tilda, from a popular line of Swedish stamps. I stamp multiple images and layer parts to create a life-like effect.


This is my favorite card. It's made with a triple-printed vintage Pear's Soap ad. I added glitter glue to the butterfly wings - Stickles glitter glue is my BEST friend in the studio. The lace and pearl was inspired by a satin ribbon necklace I saw at the Bead & Button show last year - cool, huh?


So, there you go. I hope this isn't too much.

Cheers,
Susan
16  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Silver bracelet - chainmaille "Hodo/Sidewalk" weave on: January 04, 2011 09:05:19 AM
Hello! I'm new to Craftster and feeling my way around a bit. I'm fascinated by chainmaille weaves and the geometry of Japanese 12-in-2 in particular. Here's a version designed by Rebeca Mojica and made by me. It's called "Hodo", which means "sidewalk" in Japanese. I buy raw Argentium silver wire and make my own jump rings.
