New Stock for Sale…

I have made a lot of stock lately  & it`s all for sale!

I have been trying to get into a routine where I set out a few hours a week just to make cards. I have applied to participate in an Open House at Embrace Arts, in Leicester on saturday 30th of June, & hopefully I will get a little stall to show my crafts.

I will mainly be selling cards, but I will bring some of my old M-Seal & Dough Craft jewellery as well.

These are three cards I`m selling from my stock. If anybody is interested, please let me know here or send me a PM    in my facebook cosmic crafts page.

The face of the sun…

Birthday Card

This is one of the cards I sold a little while ago.

I have around 7 cards on stock at the moment, please let me know if you`re interested in any of these designs, or if you would like to see photos of my new card stock.


A good week!

I have not been posting as much as I would have liked, but there`s a good reason for it: I have been selling quite a few cards the last couple of months! & last week has been my best, having sold 4 cards out of my stock as well as taking a couple of orders for a birthday card & a Best wishes card for a work colleague & friend that is sadly leaving us this week.

I will be posting them here very soon.

So, I have been making cards like crazy…more people have seen my designs & would like to buy some more, & I`ve been thinking about setting myself at least a day a week where I am free for a few hours to make cards regularly & build a stock. There`re loads of Spring Craft Fairs coming & I want to be ready!

Birthday Card

Birthday card made of pale green card (12,7 x 17,8cm), with Pink Flower bag embellishment, Black card, Indian Handcrafted paper made using recycled cloth & Silver Butterfly peel-offs

These are a couple of Birthday Cards I made in January, the people I made them for have an affinity for butterflies, so I found some lovely butterfly peel offs to use on them.

Space, the final frontier…

These are another two cards I made a couple of month`s ago from the “Night Sky” collection, this time in Blue.

I love Moon & Star embellishments…I`m a huge Science Fiction fan, & I`m attracted to anything that has to do with space!

For Kids Too

I had an order last month to make a card for an 11 year old`s birthday. He loves football, but his mum thought he had enough football cards so she wanted something different.

And this is what I made. A yummy 3D decoupage birthday cake & big letters. They both liked it, which is great news!

Black is beautiful

The last couple of months seem to have been quite productive. Back at College making loads of jewellery & I even managed to build up a little bit of Card stock.

Here is a card I made for one of my best friends that lives back in Spain. She really loves black (as I do!), so I thought that the card definitely had to be black.

I`m a huge fan of silver moon & star embellishments & I used them here. I love the contrast between silver & black!
