More Rolo Cards

  More Rolodex cards I made over the past couple of years but never took photos or posted any of them.

  Here they are showing the fronts and backs:

Set 1:
Fronts


Backs

Set 2:
Fronts

Backs

Set 3:
Fronts
Backs

  Set 3 were the first ones I made. I didn't get too fancy. 

  Here's the Rolodex I found at a local Value Village. Love it! It's from the early '50s, I believe. Even has the original pencil in the pencil slot, and index cards. It was full of blank cards. What a find for only $4!


  This is my new obsession! Give it try if you haven't already. Great way to save your favourite paper if it's been discontinued. You could even put family photos on them 

  Here's the die I purchased, just in case I run out of cards that came with the machine. I have 3 Rolodexes in total. Sizzix calls it, Cards, Telephone & Address card dies:


  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you're having a great summer! Lots of sunshine here this week! Hope you have time to get inky!

Altered Rolodex Cards



  Happy Canada Day 
to all my family and friends! 
The big 150! 

  Having a great day in my craft room. We have next week off too!

  Made 3 more "Rolo" or Rolodex cards. I made the moustache fella a few weeks ago. Lots of fun! Using stamps and I haven't used before! (I know, eh?!), some favourite papers, and bling!

  Here are the backs. I decided not to decorate the backs too much, like I have done with previous cards.

Here they are individually:




  Love making these! If you haven't tried altering Rolodex cards, give it a go! Great way to use up scrap, small stamps, and embellies!

Today Is All About You - Watercolour Flowers


  Love these stamp sets and matching dies! TH "Mini Bouquet". I also have his larger set of these flowers, "Flower Garden". The matching dies are a must!

 This is more of an artsy card than I usually make. Background, is Distress Oxides, then I used a couple of stencils. I found in my stash a spray called "Goosebumps" Clear Texture Spray. You can see it in the top left corner. Love the affect! Used 2 TH stencils. 

  Flowers are done with Prima Tropical Watercolours and popped up with thin 3D black foam squares. Added some Stickles to each one.

  Closeups:


The inside. Used Prills for the centre of the flower.

The back.

The start of the card.

Bird Crazy Thanks


  I believe this is the only Bird Crazy stamp I had left to get inky!

  Made this pink and white tag card for a co-worker who was my supervisor, but is moving on to another job, still within the company. She made life less stressful for me this past year and half.

  The paper used is all from an old paper pad by Tim Holtz called Vintage Shabby. I have been hoarding it!

  I used the matching dies for this cutie and coloured it with pencils and Gamsol. 

  Sentiment is a TH/Sizzix die. Used a TH stencil with paste and a SU flower punch. 

  Lots of bits and bobs on this; drywall tape, crepe paper, tulle, cheesecloth, Hug Snug ribbon, glitter pink eyelet Some Nuvo clear transparent enamel drops, Stickles on the flower, and a Dew Drop. 

Some closeups:




The inside. I covered up the message.

And the back.
