Its been a wonderful Autumn so far in these parts... lots of beautiful colours appearing in nature and some lovely sunshine to appreciate them in too. I've found it very inspiring and have more ideas for autumnal creations than i have time to make!
This week i have some new mushroom greetings cards to show you and also some super cute bookmarks - as always i look forward to reading your comments :)
Mushroom/Toadstool Greetings Cards
I took the photos for these three cards last Autumn and i've been looking forward to getting them printed up and into the shops as i really love the images - there is something so characterful about mushrooms and toadstools i think, i can quite understand how they have got a reputation for being magical fairy dwellings! Here are some pics...
Mushroom Card No 1
Mushroom Card No 2
Mushroom Card No 3
Ad with all my cards they are available from my website and my Print and Paper shop on Etsy priced £1.99 if bought alone, or £1.75 if you buy more than one card.
Another bit of card related news is that i have had some success selling my cards in a local shop - yay! :) I'm thinking of approaching some more shops now, i'll let you know how i get on!
Giant Paperclip Bookmarks
I've noticed a few crafters selling 'giant' paperclip bookmarks recently and i thought it would be a fun thing to have a go at myself. I created a few designs and got them printed onto fabric, then made up the flat backed buttons to attach to the wire frame of the paperclips.
I'm really pleased with how they've turned out so i will definitely be making more! I'm selling them in sets of three - here's a selection of the ones i've made so far.
|Black Cat Giant Paperclips|
|Mini Mushroom Giant Paperclips|
|Autumn Leaf Giant Paperclips|
They are useful little things that as well as working as bookmarks could be used for organising papers in lots of fun ways and even for embellishing gifts. I'm packaging them in sealed cellophane bags so they would also make lovely little gifts or party favours in their own right too.
These three sets are available now from my Etsy shop priced £5.99 each. I hope you like them as much as i do!
That's all from me for another week, time for a glass of strawberry wine i think (my first go at home brewing is a hit! :)) and a wander around the other crafty blogs over at Handmade Harbour. Thanks for stopping by! x
