Lake Cabin Card

1 Comment

Lake Cabin

I have a customer that lives in a lake house so I made this card for her to give her husband for Father’s Day. I used the Cabin SVG from Miss Kate Cuttables.

SUPPLIES:
SVG File: Miss Kate Cuttable SVG File (cabin)
Cardstock: Bazzill (Ivy, parakeet, Java, sea water, Bazzill Blue,smoky)
Accents/Tools: Gina Marie Designs Dies (stitched sky die set), Joy Crafts Die (clouds), xyron x, Xyron 510, EK Success pop dots

Bear - fishing scene

I made a lake cabin card scene (see above) and had extra supplies out on the desk from it. I then got an order from a lady that wanted her granddaughter (1 yoa) to give her uncle (17 yoa) a card for “uncle’s day”. He is a big fishermen and I know will teach her how to fish. So I had a bear left over and decided to pair him up with the lake scene. I thought it worked for a kid to give to an uncle. Stamping is not my thing but since I bought the set I thought I would use. The lady and her son “uncle” loved it!

Several Bear cards for Father’s Day

Bear - Papa Bear

I have a girl at work that calls her dad Papa Bear and she has a standing order for Father’s Day and Birthdays. So when my friend who sales Close to my Heart had the new stamps on her blog I knew the girl at work would want this bear. So even though I don’t like stamping and coloring I bought it. Took me a WHOLE day and lots of different bears to get a few I liked. I ended up making several different cards with the bear so that was good….helped pay for it a little bit! I stamped this one with just black ink and then water colored him in with Tombow markers.

Bear - Adventures to start

You remember the baby card I made with an adventure theme. Well this is the dad’s Father’s Day card from the new born. I figured I would use the bear and go with the adventure theme again. I stamped this one with versa mark and heat embossed it before coloring it in with Tombo Markers. Did the arms different then the last bear and have a different saying.

Cow Fathers Day

So one of the girls at work needed 3 Father’s Day Cards. This dad she said like cows and was a farmer so I said I can do that! When trying to figure how to make it Father’s Day card my husband came up with the inside sentiment “Milk it for all it’s worth!” I loved the saying and so did the lady at work.

I think I might make this into a birthday card by tying balloons to it’s tail!

Chillin & Grillin

And her other dad likes to grill. I made a card for him about three years ago but this is a completely different image and feel to the card. I found Team Dad by Echo Park at my local scrapbooking store and thought it would be perfect for several cards. I ended up messing up one of the cards so I cut the grill out of it so I could pop dot it on top of the original image.

So one of the guys at work bought some of my cards and sent it to his parents. Well his mom now has placed orders that last through out the year. She didn’t order a Father’s Day card (long story) so her son decided to order one for her. So I made it and sent it to her as a surprise. She loved that her son and I did that for her.
