2nd batch of Easter Cards

1 Comment

Well goodness! I forgot to keep posting cards! Before I get to Mother’s Day cards I better post the rest of Easter 2020.

Easter Embossed Cross

I made this card for a couple customers that wanted a Christian themed Easter Card.

After I made one for orders I decided to make some for my friends and family. So I made them in three colors that I felt fit the receiver.

Cardstock: Bazzill (white, Limeade, Blossom, Flamingo, Blue Oasis, Tropical)
Embossing Folders: Darice (Cross with Script, Scroll Flourish Corner)
Accents/Tools: pop dots

Coloring Eggs - outside

Coloring Eggs - inside

As I was working on Easter Cards I saw this photo journaling card and got to thinking about how I could turn into a Easter Card. I came up with the ideal to add the dots and the rest of the sentiment. I had my friend make it sound good and this was the finished product. I came up with this ideal because I like the fun part of Easter but also remember that Jesus is the reason for Easter. I sent this to my new adopted Niece and Nephews and they loved it!

April Inspirational Card Challenge – Inspirational Photo – I went with the Easter theme and the eggs.

Used Create with Connie & Mary Sketch #602 for my inspiration.

SUPPLIES:
Cardstock: Bazzill (Blue Oasis)
Patterned Paper and Journaling Photo Card: Doodlebug (Bunnyville)
Accents/Tools: pop dots, Queen & Co pink dots

Easter Chic on Eggs

One of the ladies wanted a card for her dad that is into gardening and native Nebraska flowers. So I learned that the daisy is a native Nebraska flower! So I added the flowers to the journaling photo card and then used Sketch #594 at Cards with Connie & Mary (I flipped it).

I made two cards so I decided to give one to my friend Dale.

April Inspirational Card Challenge – Product – patterned paper.

SUPPLIES:
Cardstock: Bazzill (Blue Oasis, American Poppy, Intense Kiwi)
Patterned Paper and photo card: Doodlebug (Bunnyville)
Accents/Tools: Doodlebug Sprinkles (spring), SVG daisy cut file

Happy Easter Egg

So I make cards for a guy at work and then I also make cards for his mother. I made Easter cards for the mother to give to her friends and son (watercolor paper cross card). Then I made this card for the son to give to his mother (parents). She wrote me today and said she loved it! The mom likes flowers so when I saw the journaling photo card I knew to pair it with this bright happy flower paper! I cut down the journaling card and put the dotted frame around it. I used Create with Connie & Mary Sketch #598 as my inspiration. I used a flower punch to add to the strip below the egg. Because some of the journaling photo cards are big I bought 6 1/4 x 6 1/4 envelopes so this card is 6 x 6. It’s big but not too big.

I made 2 of these and sent one of these to my Aunt Barb! Happy Mail!!

He is Risen - all three

I needed a card for a lady to give her son. So he got the green/yellow one since that was more manly. I used an older image from Clearly Digi Stamps (no longer in business). Since I’m not good with inks and watercolor I used paper that was already done for me!!

Sending Prayers

Yes!! That is a stamped sentiment!! I love seeing all the stamped cards but it seriously is hard for me so I would much rather run it through my printer! But I had bought these stamps awhile back and thought it worked perfectly with this sketch and butterfly.

So in trying to figure out what I liked best I made this one too. I think I would rather have the angel facing to the right but I think for one card this works too!

Triple Matte Technique

10 Comments

Manger Scene

I was so excited to see The Paper Studio come out with a Christian Christmas Paper pack. Since I’m not a traditional stamper I’m always on the lookout for Christian Christmas stickers or papers. I wasn’t sure if I could use this piece of the pack because of how big the scene was but I was able to capture enough in a 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 card. I then used the triple matte technique…instead of stamping the design I used paper with a design on it. I then cut out the star from the original big piece and place it 3d on here.

CHALLENGES:
1) August Inspirational Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – Technique – triple matte technique
2) Christmas in August @ Scrapbook.com – make a Christmas card or layout.
3) ABC Christmas Challenge – Q – Q for a quick layout.
4) Christmas Card Challenge Week 38 – Anything Goes
5) Merry Monday Christmas in Summer Challenge – pick an old challenge. I picked challenge #206 – Nativity Scene.
6) Crimbo Crackers Christmas Challenge #114 – Anything Goes
7) Jingle Belles – about MUSIC … you might incorporate sheet music, musical instruments, music-themed stamps … or even make a card inspired by your favorite Christmas Carol. Just make sure you let us know what your MUSICAL elements are. Mine is based off the song “Away in a manger”

SUPPLIES:
Patterned Paper: The Paper Studio (Away in a Manger)

3 Wise Men and sketch

Leave a comment

Wise Men

Dec 1st Deedee’s Digis sponsored Feeling Sketchy Challenge #134 which was this sketch:

FeelingSketchy134

I wanted to make a sample and play along so I started looking through Deedee’s Digis Christmas images because I need one more religious card for this year. When I saw the Wise Men Digital Image I thought it could work with this sketch. In my mind the words would take the place of the other stars. I had just bought a new size of envelope for money cards but thought the size would work for this too…the size of the card is 3 1/2 x 7 1/4.  I never got the card done in time for the challenge but I did get it done in time for some orders I had! I was very thankful because the 3rd customer saw an error I had in my scripture so I only had to fix 5 cards…very thankful!

CHALLENGES:

  1. Dec Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – Product Category – digital image

SUPPLIES:

Digital Image: Wise Men @ Deedee’s Digis (closing shop on 12/31/15)

Our true gift at Christmas time

Jesus is Gift - red

Jesus is Gift - Blue

I needed two more religious cards this season and had an ideal to use 3 wise men image for one but I wasn’t sure on the 2nd one. So I went looking through my digital stamps and came across this one by Diane’s Daydream Design (store closed in 2014). Then I remembered an awesome sketch posted in the December Card Sketch challenge on scrapbook.com. Then I remembered the color combo from last month on the Nov Card Challenge that I didn’t get to so I decided to use it on this card. So with those 3 elements in mind I went to work and this is what I came up with!! A little modern but the focus is still on Jesus…our true gift at Christmas. I made a red background version and then also made a teal background version.

The paper used for the circles is actually a digital paper (also discontinued at Diane’s Daydream Designs) I printed on Bazzill white. Then I just used circle punches and went to town. So I will also enter into the Dec Card Challenge – product category – use something digital.

SUPPLIES:

Cardstock: Bazzill
Patterned Paper: Elegant Snowflakes (Diane’s Daydream Designs – no longer in business)
