Today I am becoming best friends with my envelope punch board. I just received my first card commission, and need to become proficient at making envelopes. The owner of Nacreous Alchemy needs a pack of mini cards and envelopes to hold little business cards, and receipts. I just love the design I came up with for her. And more importantly so does she. So it's off to fold, and cut, and fold, and cut, and fold again for this evening.
A lovely friend of mine had a birthday not to long ago. I made her a hair comb for the occasion. It's made out of clock hands with a large red glass jewel, then faux finished in a yummy distressed gold color. She admired something similar to it in my EJPcreations shop so I had to make a special one just for her. I made it so it would mimic a peacock feather, but in a very mechanical steampunk neo-Victorian way. And of course since I put so much time into making her gift I had to put equally as much time into the wrapping of it.
I made a lovely little card for her using the new Jenni Bowlin Photo Album stamp. A few weeks ago I posted a video using another one of these stamps in the series making a similar card on my youtube channel.

There is just something that comes over me when I have a My Minds Eye paper pack in my hand. It's a sort of glazed over look while my mind is filling with endless possibilities. I had bought this one (My Minds Eye Portobello Road) a little while ago. So when I found out about the birth of my friends baby boy my hands instantly reached for this pad. Because it has the PERFECT shade of blue for a little boy card.
I just love the look of those Tim Holtz flock of birds stamp against the flags. I put glossy accents over them to make them stand out a little more.
Here is the matching card I made for the new baby's amazing Mommie.
And as a little push present for the glowing mommie. I made her a lovely little clock hand hair comb for her amazing red hair. I have another shop where I make jewelry, hair accessories, and tiaras called EJPcreations.
