Mini cards...

Hi all! Here are some mini cards that I made for my local haat stall.. The mini metallic card bases are from Itsy Bitsy that I had for a looong while now in my stash.. I remember that I bought them when I wanted to try card making first.. and then I had made this quilled card.. How time flies!!

I have used the remaining cards from that set, stamps and tiny sentiments, random findings like buttons, scraps of cardstock, different kinds of inks  and a tiny dab of glossy accents in these cards:

And here is the whole set:

Hope you like them...

Magnetic mini frames

Hi! These are tiny frames.. Can hold just a passport sized or so pic.. The base is an old invitation card sponged with Evergreen Bough and Black Soot distress inks. The die-cut panel (SpellBinders Delicate Doilies die set) was also sponged with the same inks and stamped with a Technique Tuesdays stamp whose name I am not able to recollect now.. happens all the time with me :) The magnetic base and backing were prepared similar to that in a previous post..

Here is another similar mini frame:

Magnetic Square photo frames - 4

For this frame too, I used old invitation card as base, sponged Distress Inks and ColorBox pigment Ink, added inked up die-cut panel with foam tape. Embellished with rhinestones.. This is a little smaller than the previous frames and is square shaped. The die is from Spellbinders Delicate Doilies die set.

Here is another frame made similarly: (Sorry, the pic is not well taken.. )

Magnetic Photo Frames - 3

For this frame, I used an old invitation card again as the base, die-cut it and sponged it with Distress Inks.. The Di mini-ink sets are pretty handy, right? I just loved using them.. Then added die-cut (Tattered Florals die set from Tim Holtz) fabric-paper flowers and added pearls to them and rhinestones to the base. The 'Family' is a stamp from We R Memory Keepers and the panel is die-cut.

For the backing and magnetic base, I used the same technique as in my previous posts..

Magnetic Photo Frames - 2

For this frame, I used an old metallic gold coloured invitation card as the base, die-cut the frame and tried to sponge vintage photo distress ink onto it. But because of the glossy finish on the card, the ink wouldn't stay. So I rubbed a little Creamy Brown Chalk Ink from Color Box Chalk Ink set and then sponged the Vintage Photo DI.. Then attached the die-cut jute flower and popped the wording panel with foam tape onto it. The panel is again cut and inked similar to the base. Added die-cut letters which I inked with Walnut Stain DI..

For the base and backing, I followed the same technique as in my previous frame. How is it?

Magnetic Photo Frames.. 1

Hi all.. We had a local haat/flea market in our apartment complex and guess what I made? A bunch of magnetic photo frames and some mini cards.. wanted to share them with you..

For this frame, I used the negative of a die-cut blue corrugated sheet that I had bought from Itsy Bitsy, trimmed it to size and added the embellishments and diecut words to it.. For the 'Where' and 'When' panels, used diecuts again which I inked on the borders and then stamped the words with stamps from a custom-ordered stamp set from Shoma of Artbug.. Then I stuck the piece onto a similarly cut cardstock panel to give it more strength and mounted the entire thing with foam tape(on three sides, the fourth side is to slide in the photos) onto a double layer of cardstock backing. Then adhered magnetic tape on the reverse side of the backing.

How is it?
