Leave a comment

Okay I have made 2 cards last week for Deedee’s Digis Blog and haven’t had time to post them here so I’m going to so I’m caught up.

Rose Birthday

Made it for the Tuesday Morning Sketches #300 that Deedee’s Digis sponsored.

SUPPLIES:

Heartfelt Sympathy

This one was made for the Crafting by Design Challenge which was to use flowers. I had to make a sympathy card for the family of one of my “regulars” in my craft class at the retirement home. When I was praying about making the card these were the flowers I felt led to put on the card. They are bright and beautiful just like she was.

I used Deconstructed Sketch #197 as my inspiration.

Flowers for Mom

HappyMothersDa-emaily

I made this card as a sample for Outlawz Greeting Challenge – Mother’s Day Card with one flower. When I saw the bonus sketch in the May’s Card Sketch Challenge I thought the Blooming Blessings Digi from Deedee’s Digis would be perfect. It wasn’t coming together because I was trying to do the blocks in different colors so I went back and looked at Karen’s (TexasMomof4) sample. I decided I would try that look with the white background and I like it. A little more tweaking here and there and I finally came out with a card I like! The swirls are from the Cricut Calligraphy Collection cartridge. I printed the swirls and then cut them in half and then stuck the two halves together to get the look I wanted. I think I will add yellow stickles in the middle of the flowers to give it a little sparkle.

CHALLENGES:
1) May Card Sketch Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – Bonus Sketch. The original sketch is Card Sketch #2 from Creatively Yours.

Perseverance

Deedee’s Digis is sponsoring Path of Positivity Challenge which is a new challenge for me. It is a different type of challenge as they give you a word and then you create a project that shows/tells what that means. You really need to check out the blog and read how and why the challenge blog works. This month the theme is Perseverance.

Inspire Graduation

Last week a friend of mine contacted me and asked me to make her daughter’s college graduation card for her. I said yes not only because she is my friend but because her daughter graduated. About a year ago my friend’s daughter was thinking about quitting school because she had a full time job during the summer and liked having that income. Also because she had moved to an apartment during the summer and liked the freedom. She was being influenced by the world and world views and was losing focus of the big picture. The good thing is that God never looses focus and he MAKES the big picture so my friend and I prayed for her daughter. Her daughter persevered and is graduating this Sunday. I know momma is proud of her. My friend sent me this quote and asked that it be on the card. She said her daughters favorite colors were purple and yellow so this is what I came up with. I made that word art based on the one she gave me and just made it two different shades of purple. I used a sketch from blueprints 14 at My Favorite Things.

CHALLENGES:

1) May Card Sketch Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – Sketch #2 was a group of four from blueprints 14 at My Favorite Things.

2) Path of Positivity Challenge #26 – Perseverance

It is National Scrapbooking Day

Good Morning Crafters!! It is our day to play with paper….whether you are a scrapbooker or cardmaker or BOTH!! Any excuse to leave the dishes in the sink and go play in your room. It is for sure a “Take Out” dinner night! Unfortunately I have to work today since I changed positions at work but I did make up a card for the challenge at Deedee’s Digis!

Tool Time

Deedee decided to give you a little inspiration (excuse) to play in your craft room by having a challenge that starts today and runs till next Saturday, 05/09/2015. All you have to do is “lift” (or CASE) one of the inspiration pieces in the post. You can make a scrapbook page or a card! And you can get your inspiration from a scrapbook page or a card as the DT have done both for this challenge. Here is a sample of what I mean…..Faith made this scrapbook page

Spring garden-Faith-scrapbookpage

and I lifted it with my card above….do you see where I got my inspiration? I went with the layout (3 columns) and four separate images down the middle section. Other ways to lift are by doing the theme (garden or use same digi), color scheme, style, etc. I sure do hope you will come play with us! I love to see people lift projects as you never know what will inspire people.

CHALLENGES:

1) C.R.A.F.T. Challenge #309 – Add a charm/use metal. I didn’t use a charm but I do have metal so I hope it counts.

2) May Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – Product: Brads. The screws are brads. (I love brads and have more than I could ever use!!)

3) 4 Crafty Chicks Challenge #244– Anything Goes

4) Penny’s Paper-Crafty Challenge #225 – anything but a square card. I made a 5 x 7 rectangle card to show off the cute digis.

5) Cute Card Thursday Challenge #371 – Use a Sentiment.

SUPPLIES:

Digital Image: Tool Time @ Deedee’s Digis

Cardstock: Bazzill (Ash, Candle, Red Devil)

Inks: pre-colored digital image printed on Canon Inkjet Printer

Accents/Tools: Darice embossing folder (brick wall), screw shape brads, pop dots

Technique: “Lifting” (also called CASE)

Wow! Just made that deadline!! Why I scheduled a craft the same weekend as Mother’s Day weekend is beyond me. I know I have several card orders to do every year for Mother’s Day. But somehow the good Lord helped me to get it all done!

I made this card for the progressive challenge at From the Heart Stamps. Each month she has a digi of the month and if you make a project using it then you get next month’s image free. I loved this saying so I decided to go with that. I also needed a card to mail to my best friend as I decided this year I was going to mail her a card each month. I have done good so far except I didn’t get the card in the mail yesterday so it was the first month I missed. But I plan on mailing it tomorrow so I will mail two in May…hope that counts! I also decided I would use this card as one we will make at the Retirement Home next Saturday. I found 3 different patterned papers in my stash and this is what we will make!

Did you see how PigWit was colored? Well, I batted my eyelashes and asked my husband to color him in photoshop for me. He did and turned the outline a mauve and I loved it….why didn’t I think of that!

CHALLENGES:

1) From the Heart Stamps – use the digi of the month to create a project and get next month’s image FREE!

2) Crafty Cardmakers and More Challenge #137 – Dots. I used big dots but they are still dots!

SUPPLIES:

Digital Image: Hamlet PigWit Being Shy @ From the Heart Stamps

Cardstock: Bazzill (white), Paper Studio @ Hobby Lobby (pink)

Patterned Paper – very old old stuff! :)

Happy Birthday Mom!

So my best friend has a Corgi named Wriley. Wriley contacted me (Aunt Kathy) and explained he would like to get his mother flowers and a card for her birthday. So of course I told him I would help him. Then Deedee surprises me with this awesome Digi of the Month stamp that has a Corgi bringing slippers. I changed the slippers to pink (her favorite color) and then tt was PERFECT for my best friend’s birthday card from Wriley!
