Kids Mother’s Day Card

Kids Mothers Day Card

So every year I make one of my bosses a Valentine and Mother’s Day card for his wife. He likes his kids to be represented on the Mother’s Day card in some way. This year I decided to go back to having actual kids on the card like I did a couple years ago. His kids are actually growing up (Emily (24), Megan (19), Adam (15), Michael (13)) so I had to find “older” looking kids. In my search I found an awesome digi site Melonheadz. I did some creative cutting with using heads from one kid and placing it on another body. I then paper pieced the clothes on top.

The design of this card happened on accident! Got to love happy accidents. I was trying to figure out how I was going to fit four kids on a card with out making it super huge. Then I remembered that the Technique category in the April Inspirational Card Challenge is to do a technique you have been meaning to try. Well I have been wanting to do a Center Step Card so I decided that could work for 4 kids. Then I went to look for paper in my scrap drawers I thought this paper might work with all the different colors. I happened to have some of the Bingo Card scraps and that is how the card came together.

CHALLENGES:
1) April Inspirational Card Challenge – Technique Category – try a technique you have been wanting to try. I did the Center Step Card.
2) Melonheadz Friends – Pastel Colors Challenge or if you use a Melonheadz image the theme can be Anything Goes. I used the Kidlettes Brown Hair combo pack.

SUPPLIES:
Digital Image: Kidlettes Brown Haired Combo Pack @ Melonheadz
Cardstock: Bazzill (Berry Sensation)
Patterned Paper: Simple Stories (FabUlous Collection)
Inks: pre-colored digital images printed on Canon Inkjet Printer
Accents/Tools: Xyron X, Ek Success 1/16 pop dots
Techniques: paper piece

So last year I found one sheet of each of this paper and decided to buy it even though I struggle using the journaling cards. Since everything is on there sometimes I feel the card is too plain. But I decided to see how many I could make up in one night and I made 5!! I will post the others later but this one was inspired by Anna’s card as part of the April Inspirational Card Challenge so I wanted to post it. Thanks Anna for the inspiration!!

Cardstock: Bazzill (Kachina) (the two purples are unknown possibly Hobby Lobby)         Patterned Paper: Simple Stories (Hey Mom)

Life is better in Flip Flops

Life better in flip flops

Had a request for a Mother’s Day card with flip flops! She liked this saying and wanted it on the outside so this is what I came up with. Oh ya she said her mom liked bright colors so I went with the color scheme presented last month on March Inspirational Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com. I used sketch #7 posted on Cardmakers Card Challenge (the original sketch came from Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch #30). The flip flops are an SVG file but not sure from who. I ran them through and embossed them. The brads are super old and the last of those colors in my stash. All the patterned paper are scraps!!

CHALLENGES:
1) Cardmakers Card Challenge – sketch #7 – use the sketch provided.
2) April Inspirational Card Challenge – Bonus Category – use the photo as inspiration…I went with the theme – Mother’s Day.

21st Birthday

So one of my co-workers requested a 21st Birthday card for his daughter. He said an alcohol beverage was okay and to make it a fun birthday card. Well, I hope I did just that with the bright colors and design.  He said he liked it!

I used sketch #142 at Feeling Sketchy for my design. I found the bubbly drink sticker in my stash that matched perfectly with the Doodlebug glitter stickers I used for the “21”. I finally got to use the frame with bubbles from the Elegant Edges Cricut Cartridge!!!

I almost forgot about this card!

Spring Flowers Easter Card

I’m not even sure what I was looking for but found this Spring Flowers sticker all by itself. Well, Scrapanda has challenged us to use our stickers and I happily accepted. I went looking at sketches and found Sketch Saturday #402 would work nice with the sticker. I then went to my Easter scraps and found this old KI scrap that matched perfectly!! The tag looked to bare so I got out my new basket weave embossing folder since baskets go with Spring! Got out my EK Success flower punch to add a little something in the corner of the tag! Oh and a little purple gingham ribbon and the card was done…all inspired by a sticker!!

So you have heard me talk about that I’m on a kick to use my stuff that I have in piles everywhere. One of the ladies at scrapbook.com started a sticker challenge. I thought that would be great to play along as I have 2 sticker binders (remember those 12 + years ago!!) full of them. A lot of the stickers I have are for scrapbook pages and are to big for cards but I still have a several I could use up!

So I went into my sticker binder looking for stickers to make cards with and came across two packs that I think were from the $1 bin at Wal-mart but not positive. This is what I came up with:

Vellum Vase Sticker

I used this card (http://archive.feedblitz.com/303249/~3876871) as my inspiration.

CHALLENGES:

  1. Allsorts Challenge Blog #356 – Wings – My butterflies have wings.
  2. March Sticker Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – use your stickers!
  3. March Inspirational Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – Favorite Category – pick a card or sketch you have saved and lift it!

SUPPLIES:

Stickers: unknown

Cardstock: Bazzill (Berry Blush, Tapioca, Guacamole, White)

Accents/Tools: Cuttlebug embossing folder, Darice embossing folder,

Bee Flower Sticker

I used OWH Sketch #256 as inspiration for this card.

CHALLENGES:

  1. C.R.A.F.T. Challenge #356 – add some bling. There was bling in the flowers and then I added some to the top right corner.
  2. Penny’s Paper-Crafty Challenge #270 – Anything Goes.
  3. March Sticker challenge @ Scrapbook.com – use your stickers!
  4. March Inspirational Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – Favorite Category – pick a card or sketch you have saved and lift it!

These are generic and could be used for different occasions so I left them blank till I know what I want to use them for.
