Just some cards

5 Comments

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.

When I was trying to come up with a card to make at the retirement home I started with these two. The bottom one I just couldn’t get…I think this is the 5th version of it and I finally like it!  The Easter Bonnet chick I think will say “Happy Easter to my favorite chick”. I really liked it a couple nights ago when I made it but now not so sure. So who knows there might be another version soon!

I do monthly crafts at a retirement home and we made these last year for Easter.  (I forgot to post that I made them)

TP Easter Bunny

I found them on Pinterest 

They are made out of Toilet Paper rolls and paper! You can fill them with candy to give a nice decorative treat to somebody for Easter!

 

His Name is….

His Name Is

Inside: He is Risen! Happy Easter!

Last month the technique challenge over at the Feb Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com was to create your own background with stamps. Well I don’t own a lot of “real” stamps because I’m not good with them and they scare me! So I asked if it could be done digitally and she said yes. I DID NOT create this image (His Name is) as Laurie at Doodle Pantry did so all I had to do was print it out. So I kind of cheated!! I didn’t get it done last month but was inspired to make this card with that challenge in mind.

I was thinking about making this an Easter card by putting “He has Risen! Happy Easter” inside. What do you think? I’m thinking the image could work for that but might have to make it brighter…the black might be to dark for Easter…what do you think?

Alright 4 flowers down….1,000 more to go before I make a dent in the flower collection! All scraps used! Oh I have lots of stuff I need to use. I need to retire so I have time to use it all!! Sounds good to me….to bad life gets in the way!

CHALLENGES:

1) Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 Challenge #8 – Use the sketch provided as inspiration. The original sketch had the image and piece behind it as a square. I did mine as a rectangle so it looks a little different but you should still see the sketch.

2) Doodle Pantry Digital Challenge #44 – Anything Goes. If you use a Doodle Pantry Image then you will get the Stamp of the Month FREE!!

3) Word Art Wednesday Challenge #122 – Anything Goes that is uplifting

SUPPLIES:

Digital Stamp: His Name Is @ Doodle Pantry

Cardstock: Bazzill (white, black)

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

Accents/Tools: Prima Flowers, black gems, glue dots

It is the 15th of the month so you know what that means….New Digital Stamps from Clearly Digi Stamps (Clear Dollar Stamps).

CDSLWFrogSamplePic

So I took this stamp in a whole different direction! (I know…what is new, right?) Well, usually I only do that if there is some already showing it being used the way it was designed. I got it in my head that this stamp was a clear stamp made into digital and that it had already been used. So I took it and went with a Valentine theme. After my card was done I got to looking to only find out that this is a BRAND NEW IMAGE!! So I promise to use it as a F.R.O.G. image and put a sample out soon. But if you want to see how stamps can be used in so many different ways here is the frog as a Valentine/Love card using Frog Digital Stamp.

Frog Valentine

I used the Try Stampin’ on Tuesday #104 Sketch as my inspiration.

CHALLENGES:

1) Alphabet Challenge Blog D for Dry Embossing.  Dry embossing is how I got started in making cards.

The back paper is actually green. The sun was bright and it was the only time I had to take the photo.

These two cards were made with the Paste Embossing technique.

The two cross cards were made especially for a man at church that ordered 10 Easter Cards for his family. The last one was made with a dual purpose as a card I taught at the card class for Church and for the gentleman at church that was buying cards.

Challenges that all 3 Cards meet:

1) Card Makin Mamas – Easter. So, there you have it!  Now, it’s time for you to share your EASTER creations!  You’ve got 2 weeks to participate in our challenge for a chance to win the awesome prize!

2) Catch the Bug Challenge – Easter/Spring

3) Cute Card Thursday Challenge #210 – Easter. This week with Easter coming up next week, we would like to see you Easter inspired cards and projects. The cards/projects do not need to be religious in nature, maybe they can be inspired by the colors.
