Playing Card Holders & Some Paper Crafts

 The community I live in, Sun City Festival has Expos two to three times a year. It is an opportunity for club members to show off what the club is all about. It is also an opportunity to sell items and make the cost of materials and maybe a little extra to help club members continue their hobby.

I made playing card holders a few years ago and for the last two Expos people have asked for them. So, I am working on getting some ready for our next Expo which is February 24, 2024.

I sell them in sets of four and here are two complete sets. I am working on a red, white and blue set and a set using a yarn with greens, rusts and dark reds. I have enough bases to make 6 sets. Time will tell if I can get them done in time, but there is always the next Expo!

For the last year or so, I have been in a creative slump of sorts. Not a lot interested me, and I spent a lot of time reading. This past week, I have started to come out of my slump and have been busy with playing card holders and paper crafts and cards (also for Expo).

Here are some Post-it note holders.

I have 39 cards to put in the Expo, but only showing you the ones I made with watercolors. I made them the Art Impressions way, using stamps, watercolor pens, and of course water and brushes!

Instead of using my original watercolor, I used my copier to make a print and used that on the cards. This way I get to keep my original.

I made these A2 size (4 1/4" x 5 1/2") into a set of 4 cards.

These are also A2.

These last two are mini slim line (3 1/2" x 6").

That is all for now. Happy Stitching!
