Just some cards

Here are a couple cards I got done this weekend.

Easter Blessings

This was another card offered at Card Class this weekend. When I saw this image, Christ is Risen, at Daydream Designs by Diane I “ohhh” out loud. It is beautiful drawn and colored that I just had to use it when several of the ladies asked for a religious Easter card. And the inside I combine two of the sentiments in the set:

Death could not CHAIN HIM

A tomb could not HOLD HIM

The enemy could not DEFEAT HIM

Christ is Risen!

CHALLENGES:

1) April Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – Sketch Category – Merry Monday Sketch #68 was our inspiration. It worked perfectly for this card!!

2) Sweet Stamps Blog Challenge #164 – Easter

His Name Is with cross

*The white background is NOT part of the card….just put it down to get a decent picture on a glass table.

I know you have seen 2 other cards with this image, His Name Is, but I can’t help it because friends keep requesting it! I made this one for a lady who saw the last two and wanted one with a cross instead of flowers. I had to make this card quickly and during Card Class so I’m surprised it came out so good! She said she liked the Spring version but without flowers so I tried to do that one and modify it. It wasn’t working for me and she didn’t seem thrilled either so back to the sketch folder. She liked the tilted look of first card I did in rainbow colors. So I found Mojo Monday sketch #340 and went to work.  I flipped the sketch on its side. Then for the ribbon on the right I used a piece of embossed paper and put it under the image instead of on top of it. Then where they had the banner/circles I put the cross there instead.  I used a wooden cross from Hobby Lobby and covered it with paper. It needed something more so I cut out the purple piece from the Christ is Risen Digital Image at Diane’s Daydream Designs and added it to this cross.

CHALLENGES:

1) Mojo Monday Sketch #340 (MOJO340) - Use the sketch provided as inspiration.

Lighthouse Birthday

Let me tell you how blown away I was on the coloring of this image!! This set use to be a Clearly Digi Stamp (went out of business) and so I had it. But when I saw how beautifully Laurie re-did the coloring for Doodle Pantry I had to buy this set! I cut out the blue sky area that was behind the light house because it didn’t fit right in the oval. I used an older sketch, #249,  from Unscripted Sketches….I just flipped it on its side. I roughed up the edges of the card with a distresser.

CHALLENGES:

1) Doodle Pantry Digital Challenge #45 – Anything Goes….BUT if you use a DOODLE PANTRY image you will get the featured digital image FREE! I used Sheltering Lights Digital Image for a masculine birthday card that a friend needed for her brother-in-law’s birthday.

2) April Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com - Technique Category – paper piercing. I pierced around the frame.

Healing Thoughts

Inside: Healing thoughts and prayers are being sent your way.

I have 2 sisters that come to my craft class at the retirement home. Both of the ladies are in their 90′s (probably average age for the class!) but they show up every month they can. This month one of them couldn’t come to class because she fell and broke her hip so I made this card for her. Wanted her to know that she was missed and we are praying for her.

I used the March Stamp of the Month at {From the heart stamps} called Hamlet PigWit Think Spring! This card is a hybrid card…half computer colored and half with Tombow markers.

CHALLENGES:

1) March Stamp of the Month Challenge at {From the Heart Stamps} – Use the stamp of the month before the 31st and get next months image FREE.

2) Sketch Saturday Challenge #303pick any sketch from #215 to 302! I used sketch #300

SS-300-2014

3) March Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – Favorites Category – I used a saved sketch from my favorites.

4) Card Makin Mamas Challenge #83 – Photo Inspiration. Use the photo as inspiration. I took inspiration from the yellow flowers, green desk and the color of the lamp.

SUPPLIES:

Digital Image: Hamlet PigWit Think Spring @ {From the Heart Stamps}

Cardstock: Bazzill (White)

Patterned Paper: from my scraps so I don’t remember (I think the green is Michael’s)
