Card Captain for the Michael Strong Stamps group

Hello, as promised I am sharing the first couple of cards I shared with the Michael Strong Stamps Group a couple of weeks ago.

Because I’m a little out of practice I thought I would look through my collection of cards I made over the years.  I decided to go down memory lane and see how my technique improved (or not).
Card of the day – Day 1 – card made in 2012
So, this week I will be ‘reminiscing’ about cards made and how they have changed. Hopefully by the latter part of the week I will have a technique for you and caught up to 2019!
My card for today is showing my first Michael Strong stamp – the frame – for a long time I would use bits of the frame because it and the heart stamp, which I received as a gift, were all I had of Michael’s.  I was also still learning how to use stamps and what papers to use them on, etc.  Enjoy.

Card of the day – Day 2

Today’s card was made in 2016, not sure if there was any specific aim just making cards. Layering and just trying different textures and embossing.  I think I stamped the mandala under the Michael’s hexagon or it was patterned paper.  I can’t remember now.

Enjoy!  Until tomorrow.

See you soon.  Thanks for reading.
