Quick Card Set

Hi there ... 

I don't know about you but I'm exhausted... I seem to have made so many cards lately, my eyes ache!

One of the things my Aunt asked me for this Christmas is a set of 'any occasion cards'. I often make a set for her and send them with a book of stamps... It's difficult for her to get out to buy a card and so expensive, so she really appreciates me making them.


It's been hard to switch from Christmas cards, despite the fact that I've had 4 male birthday cards to make this past week too and in the end I opted for paint and embossing for this set. They came together quickly...







If in doubt, get the paint out Lol!

Now all that's left to do is to make a box for them...

I'm linking these up to This month's CAS Watercolour Challenge


Have a great day 

~ Ros ~

Wow these are stunning Ros and I bet they are well received but perhaps your Aunt will think they are too nice to give away! They would be lovely framed.

All those beautiful colors with the white embossing -- be still my heart! You have some of the most wonderful stamps. And your watercolor backgrounds take my breath away. Always love the white splatters. Your aunt will adore these as I do!

Marina said...

I'm sure she'll be delighted with this beautiful, colourful set! Thanks for the message you left me about buying postage online. I did try this once - it was for Stella's birthday card last year...and the card never arrived! I've been too scared to try it since.

Maria said...

Oh, my! Stunning collection of cards, Ros!! Your aunt will be so appreciative I'm sure!

Kara Lynne said...

This set is so beautiful Ros! I love all the vibrant watercolors with the white embossed stamping.

Wow Ros, what a beautiful set of all occasions cards! I just love the wonderful colours, your Aunt must have been thrilled! I hear you about switching themes. Pion sent me two packs of Christmas papers and one pack of paper with pink roses on it, it's difficult to think in two different modes like that. lol. hugs and happy weekend!

What a sweet gift and these are GORGEOUS! True pieces of art on each card front ... you are so talented! I'm sure she will LOVE them ... I know I do! Happy Day to you my friend!

Davi said...

Oh my Ros these are FABulous!! The background colors on each are beautiful and your white embossing looks amazing on them! I just have to ask what kind of embossing powder you use, it has the greatest texture! Your auntie is going to be delighted with her new set :)

Kathy Krug said...

You always have such beautiful painted backgrounds, I know she will love these. I do the same for an aunt of mine only at the end of the year I gather up all the cards that I have made for challenges and DT duties that I have not used and send her a box of them. Never thought about adding the stamps what a nice touch.

Hi Ros. What a beautiful set of cards for your Aunt. That is such a thoughtful and kind gift. Each one is unique and the colours are simply gorgeous! Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Watercolour!

Bonnie said...

What a wonderful gift, Ros! Your aunt must be very special to you! I love the different background of each one and the embossed designs are all so pretty! Thanks so much for sharing them with us at CAS Watercolour!

Darnell said...

Haha, this is a good example of how words can be interpreted differently, Ros! You call these extraordinary works of art "QUICK Card Set." !! Now if you are like me and you stamp one image and a sediment in the corner, you can call that Quick! But these? These might be quick for you with your eye for color and your amazing artistic talent, but they would take me forEVER!! WOW! And you are also a very loving and caring niece!! Happy Holidays hugs to you and your sweet Auntie!! Darnell
