Encouragment Cards

1 Comment


A lady at work saw a card I made with this quote so she requested this quote for her BF husband who is going through some health issues. (The card for her BF is next!)
I used the colors from the May Inspirational Card Challenge – color category. I used MFTWSC182 sketch which was one of the sketches in last months April Inspirational Challenge. I used all scraps for this card.

1) May Inspirational Card Challenge – Color category.

Hang In There2

So the lady at work wanted a card for her BFF whose husband has been injured and not healing. Been a long road but they finally found out he has something that keeps him from healing. There is no cure but they can manage it now that they know he has it. My co-worker wanted to encourage her friend during this time. She found the “hang in there” card I did for my friend and said she wanted something similar. This is what I came up with. I used MOJO Sketch #446 for my inspiration.

1) May Inspirational Card Challenge – Favorites Category – used a past MOJO sketch.

Inks: colored in photoshop by my husband and printed on Canon Inkjet Printer
Accents/Tools: Taylored Expresseions embossing folder (cloudy days), EK Success double embossd dotted lace edge punch, EK Success 1/16 pop dots

Time for some glitter!


Clear Dollar Stamps -Snowman Cheer

It’s the third Friday of the  month so time for another challenge at Clearly Inspired Challenge. Today’s challenge is to use glitter! I don’t use it a lot but some cards it just works perfectly on. On this card I used stickles on the snowflakes. Not a lot of glitter but it is there! If you play in the challenge you have a chance of winning  a $10 gift certificate for stamps or digis up for grabs. And you will also have a chance to win the Featured Digi for September. Super cute Featured Digi this month you must check it out – Sentimental Ewe Digital Stamp.

I’m so bummed!! With all my craziness going on this week I forgot to send my card in so it didn’t make the blog! Oh well, guess I will just post it down below!

This is another card I will teach at the Card Class next Friday in Springfield, MO!


1) Clearly Inspired Challenge #36 (CIC36)  – Use glitter. A little or a lot doesn’t matter as long as it is on the card somewhere.

2) Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #146  (TESC146) – Use the sketch. I just love her sketches. I’m sure you can tell since I do almost everyone! And I won the prize from the last challenge! I know so exciting.

Day 30 @ 365Cards.blogspot.com


1) Day 30 @ 365Cards.blogspot.com – Today’s challenge is to “Mix and Match” manufacturers.  Do you ever find that you tend to lean towards one more than another when choosing patterned paper, stamps, ink, embellies, so that your card is primarily made up of one manufacturer’s products?  If so, then this is definitely the challenge for you.

(Supplies used are listed at the end of this post.)

2) Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #135 –

a. Create a card using the sketch as inspiration. Feel free to switch up the shape or size of your card. As long as your project follows the general sketch, you’re good to go! You may play as many times as you want. Each upload will be entered into our weekly drawing, so the more you create – the better chance you have of winning the PRIZE!

b. Upload your project to Splitcoaststampers before 8pm on Thursday, April 7th using keyword TESC135. Feel free to come back to this thread and link your creation, however, make sure you’ve uploaded it using the correct keyword as that’s how we’ll choose the winner.

c. You’re not required to use TE Stamps on your project, but I love it when you do! And if you’re drawn as our weekly winner and you’ve used TE Stamps on your project you’ll get a little sumpin’ sumpin’ extra (see below)!
