Encouragment Cards

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.

Accents/Tools: Cuttlebug Embossing folder (Wicker Weave), old button

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.

So I needed a card for 21st birthday and was trying to use a wine bottle. I thought I could make this sketch work for it but it didn’t. So I had all these pieces cut out so I decided to make the original sketch without the wine bottle.

1) April Card Sketch Challenge – Sketch #1 – original sketch was from Pagemaps
2) April Inspirational Card Challenge – Product – I used black string.

Cardstock: Bazzill (Berry Sensation, Nelly, Kachina)
Accents/Tools: Martha Stewart balloon punch, Cuttlebug swirl embossing folder, McGill stamp punch,

Lots of Love

So last month I made all the categories in the Card Challenge except for the technique….I actually had it all laid out on the last day but didn’t have time to put it together. But I also used a sketch I had saved in my favorites so I will put it in that category this month since I used a saved sketch and saved technique!

1) Feb Inspirational Card Challenge – technique category – saved sketch – Clean & Simple #125 and saved technique – color blocking with cardstock.

A Turtle-riffic Birthday!


Turtle-riffic Birthday

Still got this cold but have a little more energy today so since it is the LAST day to enter Deedee’s Digi of the Month challenge I dragged by bottom into my scraproom and came up with this! Not bad for having to blow your nose every 5 min!

I did a mixture of using the pre-colored digi (the base of the turtle) but then colored the shell and balloon in photoshop and glued them on top of the base. Then I printed the hat out on red cardstock and cut it out.

Challenge 2 – Balloons


Now for the next challenge at Clearly iStamp in celebration of National Scrapbook Day:
CHALLENGE #2: Balloons! 
Must have one or many on your project.

Hot Air Balloon

When I was deciding on what challenges to do I thought of all the wonderful Balloon stamps that Clearly Digi Stamps has in their store. This is Hot Air Balloon is one of my favorites and I guess I like it for Masculine cards as this is the 2nd or maybe 3rd one I made with it! It is so fun and easy to paper piece too.  I used a March 2012 Card map from as inspiration.
