Vintage Valentine

Valentine Vintage

*So I’m late posting this to the blog as I made it in Feb 2019.

I bought this paper at Hobby Lobby thinking it would be good for some customers. Well decided to make one for one of my bosses to give his wife. I have been making Valentine and Mother’s Day cards for her for the past 6 years (maybe longer). When she saw me she told me that she told her husband he was never allowed to buy a store bought card again for her!! I hope she likes this one….a little different than my normal style.

I used a sketch from last month’s January Card Sketch Challenge – Bonus sketch. Original sketch was Feeling Sketchy Challenge Blog #211.

SUPPLIES:
Cardstock: Bazzill (Ivy)
Patterned Paper: Vintage Valentine by The Paper Studio
Accents/Tools: pearls, cutter bee scissors, lace, 1/16 EK Success Pop dots

Sushi Cards

Sushi

Inside:
Have a rice day!
Happy Birthday!

The two sushi and front chopstick were printed out a 2nd time and then pop dotted to give it dimension.

I made this card for a friend’s friend who was turning 95 and wanted to eat sushi. She didn’t have anyone to eat sushi with her so since my husband loves sushi he volunteered! I made this card to give her at dinner. She loved it and said it was the best birthday she could ask for!

Then I had another friend that loves sushi so I made her one too!
I then had a lady see it and want one for her weekend get together with out-of-state boyfriend. They were having a sushi themed weekend.
On the inside she requested:
Are those chopsticks? or you just happy Sashimi?
He loved it and said it was going on his desk!

Sushi - Good Times Roll

In trying to come up with the first sushi card I printed out this digital paper. I didn’t end up using it for that card but thought it would make a cute card using the same sketch but making it the focus and just a sentiment. I like how this one turned out too!

Happy Birthday

I made this card for my niece. I was late sending it but better late than never I guess. I used the sketch from March 2019 Card Sketch Challenge – sketch #5. Original found here: http://sweetsketchwednesday2.blogspot.com/2019/02/sketch-153-with-bugaboo.html
I turned it horizontal and left the ribbon off. I did add rhinestone which was part of the Product category of the March Inspirational Card Challenge.

The happy birthday was a section on a patterned paper piece that I cut out.

Easter Cards

Had to make some Easter Cards for a lady at the Retirement Home. So I made these for her to pick from.

Easter - One Cute Chick

I pulled out my stack of papers and found several journal card sheets. This was a journal card with more white above the chicks. I cut it off then turned it over to find the awesome orange and used it as the top of bottom. Worked perfectly for Sketch #5 of the March 2019 Card Sketch Challenge. It also fits the Spring theme of the March Inspirational Card challenge.

Supplies: 
Cardstock: Bazzill (African Daisy, Sour apple)
Patterned Paper: Echo Park (Celebrate Easter – 4 x 6 journaling cards)
Accents/Tools: scor-tape, Gingham ribbon, glue dots

Easter - Bunny has Chocolate

I made several cards up for a lady that wanted Easter cards. I used my supplies on hand and used up some journaling cards. Which worked out perfectly as that was the Product Category at the Inspirational Card Challenge on Scrapbook.com. I couldn’t use the big journaling card the way it was because the message didn’t fit. So I pulled out my handy dandy Cricut and made a new bracket shape and printed the saying on there. I cut out the rabbit from another journaling card as I thought he was perfect for this.

SUPPLIES:
Cardstock: Bazzill (Petunia, African Daisy, Kachina)
Journaling Cards: Echo Park (Celebrate Easter Collection 3 x 4 and 4 x 6)
Accents/Tools: Cricut, Elegant Edges Cricut Cartridge, EK Success 1/16 pop dots, Cutter Bee scissors

Easter - Easter Egg

Another Easter Card using up Journaling Cards which was the Product for the March 2019 Inspirational Card Challenge on Scrapbook.com. I cut out the center of the big journaling card and used it for another card. I then cut the egg out of the smaller journaling card and pop dotted it in the center of the frame.

SUPPLIES:
Cardstock: Bazzill (African Daisy, Kachina, Intense Orange)
Journaling Cards: Echo Park (Celebrate Easter Collection 3 x 4 and 4 x 6)
Accents/Tools: EK Success 1/16 pop dots, Cutter Bee scissors, Rectangle die,

Easter - Easter words

Another Easter Card using up Journaling Cards which was the Product for the March 2019 Inspirational Card Challenge on Scrapbook.com. I cut out the eggs from the large journaling card and then used a small journaling card that had all the Easter words on it. I paired them with some bright paper that reminded me of what would be on Easter eggs!

Easter - Hippty Hoppity

Last Easter Card!! This one is for March 2019 Inspirational Card Challenge – theme – Lawn and Garden. This journaling card has the bunny standing in a yard with a tree and flowers. I decided to use the inside of another journaling card I cut out and it covered up the tree which I was okay with. Once the banner was on there only one flower was showing so I cut out some flowers from some paper and pop dotted them. I added a cloud since I covered up some.
