10 card commission

Good morning everyone, I hope all is as well as it can be with you...hugs

The wind is still blowing here but at least it is drying up again, and it isn't really cold yet, although the forecast says it soon will be!

My cousin asked me for 10 of these cards in brown and Ivory, she does so love her browns, and I do too so it was a real pleasure making them for her. Having said that, it is always a real pleasure making cards :o)

Basecard is ivory linencard from the PaperMill shop before they all closed a few years ago, folded and cut to 7x5
Brown textured card is from PDA.
Own photograph of course, you have seen the original when I posted my white version of this card.
Photograph feathered in PSP7 onto same ivory card, an cut with Spellbinders pierced oval die, then raised with sticky foam strips.
White pearlised card used for the panel which is embossed with Darice then lightly chalked.
I added a smidgeon of golf Glamour Dust which isn't very noticeable here, but is very twinkly IRL.
Sentiment stamped with Stamps and Smiles.

I had a little play with paperpiecing, long time since I last did any, and this little card is the result. I dug out an old Stampendous, Retro Trees, stamp for this one.
This is just a little A6 card, a size I rarely make. While I was looking for something else, I came across an A5 box full of hammered card which I had folded into A6 cards years ago and forgotten about, so it looks like I will be making lots more this size for a while LOL.
Green paper background is from my scrapbox, and I stamped the trees onto white linencard scrap, then onto the same green paper. I fussy cut them and stuck them on, then stamped the sentiment with the same stamp as on the set of cards.
I quite like the effect and will possibly do it again :o)

How I miss the Pepermill shops Jackie, nothing beats being able to feel the card in person as it's never quite the same ordering on line.

Really like your set of cream and brown cards, but equally a big fan of paper piecing and love that one.

Your cousin is very lucky having her own personal card maker - these are of course gorgeous! It's sometimes nice to do some all alike... a bit like a production line - especially when the person wanting them loves the design and knows the work that goes into them!

I like your little go at paper piecing too - that's a fab stamp!
