Hello and welcome to All things card and paper at Evelyn Mae. A place where I get to wax lyrical about all things to do with card making. From stitching to glitter, to history to whims of fashion ...

Thank you for visiting

This week I have been mostly ....

This week has been busy ... I have been working on cards for various portfolios and its been brilliant.  Not only creating cards, but cards that hopefully will sell my business to investors and get my cards to different places to sell :)  Its made me really happy!!

On Friday some great friends of ours came up for a trip to the seaside and we spent the day wandering around, and we wandered into the Turner Contemporary art gallery.  

Inside they have a gift shop, and they sell a selection of greetings cards.  After a brief chat with the receptionist, it turns out they do buy from local artists, so this week has seen me preparing a portfolio to take in ....

Here is a quick selection that  I have been working on ....

Bearing in mind that it is an art gallery, I have not used any patterned paper at all in these designs, but have used simple stamps hand coloured, and the beach huts are free drawn by me.  I think they need a little more work, but maybe the start of designing my own stamp set :)

Sorry about the poor photography, I still haven't sorted out a decent camera, and I don't know how people put water marks on them!!!

A project for next year perhaps!!

Please let me know what you think about the cards, any feedback would be more than welcome :)  

Thanks for stopping by
