Sweet Stampin' Challenge





Hey Bleeps! I hope you've had a better week than I have. I've been battling a bad UTI. And if you've had one before,than you know what I mean when I say, UGH....and double UGH! Good news is went to the ER and got some meds....thank the Lord for modern medicine ;)



 Anyways, I've been working on this project for awhile now.....and I was happy to see it fell into the challenge over at Sweet Stampin' Challenge Blog. The challenge was to try something different. Well, I made my own box and matching cards. Also, the butterflies used the bleaching technique....which I know isn't very 'bleachy',LOL!!! I used a bleach pen ...thought it would be less messy.....which it was. Maybe it was because I used a aqua painter...even though I didn't water it down.....oh, well....I will practice more with this technique some more;)





Hey,I need some advice, I was thinking of putting these cards and matching box in my Etsy store. Do you think $15 or $20 for the set? I'm never good at pricing my own stuff!!! Leave me a comment and let me know your thoughts!
Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous day!!

Oh Holley, that's beautiful! Being British it's hard for me to quantify $ prices but I would say definitely go for $20. It's so worth it x

So talented Holley. These are simply beautiful. Love the colors and various textures you've used throughout.

Shari Winterstein said...

Wow Holley - these are fabulous. I think people would be willing to pay $30 for all of the beauty in this package. But I'm with Abi and you - I never would know what to charge! Thanks for super blessing my day. :)

Holley, those are so gorgeous. I hate pricing stuff too, but I would say $20 definitely. Looks like a lot of work! Shelley :)

I think$20 is a good price. These cards are stunning! Sorry to hear about the UTI. I get them a lot so know what you are going through. I hope you get better soon.
