Batch Making - Chronology Cards

Hi everyone,

I am a bit late this week as we went away for a few days over the weekend and then had no internet last night, but I've got myself organised tonight to show you some cards I made recently. Since having my little boy I have started doing a lot more things in batches! I have started batch cooking at the start of the month and filling the freezer with easy meals. It saves me time and means we still get a home cooked meal that is really quick to prepare some evenings. Well I've now started batch making cards too. I made a card for my Dad's birthday using the DoCrafts Chronology range, which took me a little while to make. I am now more out of practise at making cards so it takes me a while to get into the swing of things. After I had done one however, I had lots of ideas so thought I would make a batch using that range whilst I had the ideas. Here are some of the results:

This is a small card, which I find great for little thank you cards and for using up little bits of papers. I distressed the tag using walnut stain and stamped it with a little stamp from my stash. 

I cut out the balloon and boat images from the papers to make this card.

For this card I stamped the centre image using black ink several times. I cut out the various parts like the clocks and person from one of the images and distressed them with different distress inks. I used antique linen for the background, walnut stain for the person, and faded jeans and dusty concord for the clocks. I then layered them onto the background image.

Thanks for looking. I'll be back again next week with some more I have made.
