Here's the scan I did of the cards you sent Ermellina.

Embossing, that's one thing I would love to learn how to do. Just gorgeous.
Thank you and I hope you like the ones I sent to you!

I got the most wonderful cards sat. from amaryllisroze! just love them so pretty and perfect! again the scan doesn't show just how wonderful these cards are - the background on the left handed one has sparkly paper on the background - very cool.

Edit: I had to copy and paste this message here. I posted it to the wrong thread  Embarrassed


Duh, I just remembered to check my own mail tonight 

I hit pay dirt!!  Got fabulouses cards from Sewknitter AND Tristita!! 

Sewknitter and I cheated, lol. We let each other choose 3 cards from each others stash. Then she blessed me with 2 other cards + some wonderful 'head' postage stamps.  I assure you they will be used!

Tristita wouldn't cheat   with us. She sent me 2 of the most amazing layered/embellished cards.

I'm hoping that both girls will post pics for me.  My scanner worked this morning so it's done until the mood strikes it again.

Here are the ATCs I sent Teeisme. Now, please understand, that we did a private swap because I wanted 3 ATCs instead of two.

Here's an ATC that Tee wanted from the 5 line swap:


Then I asked Tee about themes she might want.

I'm not really big on pigs, but I found some stamps with pigs, and then I added some "snouts" and this time tried not to completely cover the background.


then, my first ever postage head person ATC, and I used beeswax to add dimension. First time with beeswax. I got the base picture from birds and blooms mag. That's a man with a turkey eating out of his hand.


I didn't know if that was a very good p-head-p ATC, so I tried again. Found this cute robot doing a hand stand, but I flipped him upright and it looked like a waiter. Added the stamp and wine. the letters are pieces of my credit cards, they looked "robotic" and it says, "Merlot 1869, anyone?" Now I have no idea if merlots have years, so forgive my ignorance.



Still trying again, I found a cool picture of rick-shaws in China, and this girl in the crazy pose, so added a p-head to her, and another set as a passenger.


I don't know if I've succeeded with p-head people ATCs, any suggestions are truly welcome!

Okay, Tee, it is your turn. . .

And here are the cards I received from ermelina...



Beautiful! I actually LOVE tea...and the forum where I'm an admin uses the fleur as our motif! Smiley You can't really tell from the scan, but there is foil stamping and embossing on the tea time card. And the fleur card? That scattered gold embossing is beautiful against that purple background!

Ermelina! Those cards are gorgeous!  I love the tea time one, and the fluer de lis card just looks so mysterious and interesting.  Lucky Maid Mirawyn!

I received from sewknitter yesterday, but was hoping that today would be a little less rainy and gloomy to take pics.  It isn't  Undecided
They're beautiful cards, I hope these photos do them justice...





Check out the cool insect postage!  I love it!

Did you pull the other bug stamps out of the envelope? I hope so!

Yes, the photos are better than the ones I took.

Oh, the pearl flower with the writing on it is your name in chinese.

Glad you like them! They were fun to make!
