Dino Valentine Cards

dino-across-the-miles-valentines

My Godparents sent an email that their grandson’s teacher sent out. She asked for Valentine cards to be sent to the child at school so they could learn about different places in the world. So I asked what he likes being 6 yoa and in 1st grade and was told dinosaurs, Pokemon and Star Wars. Mary Ellen drew some cute dinosaurs at Free Dearie Dolls Digi Stamps so I used one of them. I decided for the squares to use small version of the states that the card was coming from (Missouri) and going to (California). I used MOJOMonday #482 sketch but instead of a circle inside I went with a jagged edge square.

See next post for card without maps.

Hope your
Valentine’s Day
is Dino-mite!

Since the dino is so cute and funny I decided he needed to be sent to my guy friend, Dale. I try to send Dale a card for each of the holidays…who doesn’t need happy mail?!!

So I apparently put my paper in wrong in the embossing folder because the textured side go the indent embossing (not sure what that is called) so I decided to use it! I thought it worked great with getting the love/valentine theme across without being a lovey dovey card! I hope the dino makes him smile like it makes me!

Sweet Baby Boy and Girl

Sweet Baby Boy

I made three cards for my old boss to choose from…this is one of them. I was inspired by this card
http://sylvia-anne-poppyspapercraftpatch.blogspot.com/2014/03/sweet-baby-girl-at-atcas.html
I don’t do white space well so I decided to have a colored background that matched by alphabet stickers!! I used the Hammer Embossing Technique. The blue one wasn’t done well because it was my first try…I learned you do have to hit pretty hard.

I also made this in pink since I had pink stickers just like the blue… and I made 2 in each color since I did one in all caps and the other in all lower case.

Dump Truck Birthday

3 Comments

DumpTruckBirthday.JPG

I had an order for a construction vehicle theme birthday card for her 3 year old grandson. She had sent me a sample of what she liked and this was my version. She liked it so that was good!

I used Toy Truck Ants digital image by Doodle Pantry. I modified it with the owners permission (make sure to always ask before modifying a digital stamp). I actually didn’t modify it my husband did once I told him what I wanted. I wanted the dump truck with dirt so he erased the ants from the dirt and added that dirt to the blank truck. Then he added a 3 to the dirt! Love his PS skills!!

CHALLENGES:
1) Feb Inspirational Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – Bonus Category – have a number on the card.
2) Ants in my Pantry Digital Challenge #14 – Anything Goes theme but must use a digital image (from any company).

SUPPLIES:
Digital Image: Toy Truck Ants @ Doodle Pantry Digital Doodles
Cardstock: Bazzill
Inks: pre-colored digital image printed on a Canon Inkjet Printer
Accents/Tools: The Paper Studio embossing folder, Life Styles Craft embossing folder (Zig Zag), Ek success 1/16 foam dots
Techniques: embossing, paper tearing

Catching up with Doodle Pantry!

1 Comment

So I realized today as I was looking through my files that I’m way behind in posting as I haven’t posted the Valentine Cards made with Doodle Pantry images! So here is trying to catch up after the holidays…just in time for Mother’s Day card making frenzy to start!!

Valentine Monster Truck

One of my regular’s at work wanted Valentine cards for her 3 boys. This is what I made the 5 year old…..it was the perfect image for a 5 yoa boy in my opinion!! I used I {heart} sketches #37 as my inspiration.

She also needed 2 teacher cards. I only had one made so I made this one….which is similar to the other one I made a couple years ago. This card was inspired by Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 sketch #43.

Teacher for ewe

Another lady at work need a card with a walrus on it so this image, Critter Friends, at Doodle Pantry was perfect!! I used the Card Sketch #41 at Sketch n Scrap for my inspiration!

Walrus Valentine

And the last one I made for my husband! I never tell him enough how good looking he really is….so I thought this was a good way!

Stud Muffin

Thanks for stopping by and catching up with me!

I would like to play in Doodle Pantry’s Ants in my Pants Digital Challenge #3 if these count since I’m just now posting them. If not hopefully I will get to play next month.

Using Green on Christmas Projects

WaitingForSanta

This card was inspired by the challenge at Sparkles Christmas Challenge #50 -your creation must be mostly Green and Christmas. When I found this image, Waiting for Santa, and saw he was already wearing Green I knew it would be perfect for this challenge! I like to use pre-colored images as I’m not great with coloring. I did sneak in a little red but I think it will still count as mostly Green. The cute twine was given to me by my friend, Deedee, so it was even more perfect to pair it with one of her cute images! I used and older sketch from Sketch~N~Scrap (card sketch #16) as my inspiration which is a current sketch at the March Card Sketch Challenge @ Scrapbook.com.

CHALLENGES:

1) Sparkles Christmas Challenge #50 – Use mostly Green and must be a Christmas card.

2) March Card Sketch Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – sketch #4

3) Completely Christmas Challenge #52 – add texture. My texture is the twine.

4) Craftyhazelnut’s Christmas Challenge #218 – Cut it up. I cut out the boy and pop dotted him on the card.
