Sunflower Mother's Day

I have a standing order for Sunflowers for a guy at work to give to his wife. Here is her Mother’s Day Card. I used the bonus sketch of the April Card Sketch Challenge @ Scrapbook.com.

SUPPLIES: 
Cardstock: Bazzill (Mexican Poppy, Vanilla, Brown)
Patterned Paper: Jenni Bowlin (brown mini dots)
Accents/Tools: EK Success 1 1/4 square punch, Cricut, Elegant Edges Cartridge, Spellbinders Flower Bundle #4 metal die

Easter Cards

1 Comment

Had to make some Easter Cards for a lady at the Retirement Home. So I made these for her to pick from.

Easter - One Cute Chick

I pulled out my stack of papers and found several journal card sheets. This was a journal card with more white above the chicks. I cut it off then turned it over to find the awesome orange and used it as the top of bottom. Worked perfectly for Sketch #5 of the March 2019 Card Sketch Challenge. It also fits the Spring theme of the March Inspirational Card challenge.

Supplies: 
Cardstock: Bazzill (African Daisy, Sour apple)
Patterned Paper: Echo Park (Celebrate Easter – 4 x 6 journaling cards)
Accents/Tools: scor-tape, Gingham ribbon, glue dots

Easter - Bunny has Chocolate

I made several cards up for a lady that wanted Easter cards. I used my supplies on hand and used up some journaling cards. Which worked out perfectly as that was the Product Category at the Inspirational Card Challenge on Scrapbook.com. I couldn’t use the big journaling card the way it was because the message didn’t fit. So I pulled out my handy dandy Cricut and made a new bracket shape and printed the saying on there. I cut out the rabbit from another journaling card as I thought he was perfect for this.

SUPPLIES:
Cardstock: Bazzill (Petunia, African Daisy, Kachina)
Journaling Cards: Echo Park (Celebrate Easter Collection 3 x 4 and 4 x 6)
Accents/Tools: Cricut, Elegant Edges Cricut Cartridge, EK Success 1/16 pop dots, Cutter Bee scissors

Easter - Easter Egg

Another Easter Card using up Journaling Cards which was the Product for the March 2019 Inspirational Card Challenge on Scrapbook.com. I cut out the center of the big journaling card and used it for another card. I then cut the egg out of the smaller journaling card and pop dotted it in the center of the frame.

SUPPLIES:
Cardstock: Bazzill (African Daisy, Kachina, Intense Orange)
Journaling Cards: Echo Park (Celebrate Easter Collection 3 x 4 and 4 x 6)
Accents/Tools: EK Success 1/16 pop dots, Cutter Bee scissors, Rectangle die,

Easter - Easter words

Another Easter Card using up Journaling Cards which was the Product for the March 2019 Inspirational Card Challenge on Scrapbook.com. I cut out the eggs from the large journaling card and then used a small journaling card that had all the Easter words on it. I paired them with some bright paper that reminded me of what would be on Easter eggs!

SUPPLIES:
Cardstock: Bazzill (African Daisy, Kachina, Intense Orange, Sour Apple)
Journaling Cards: Echo Park (Celebrate Easter Collection 3 x 4 and 4 x 6)

Accents/Tools: EK Success 1/16 pop dots, Cutter Bee scissors,

Easter - Happy Easter

Another Easter Card using up Journaling Cards which was the Product for the March 2019 Inspirational Card Challenge on Scrapbook.com. I cut close around the design so I could mat it.

Sketch: Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #309

SUPPLIES:
Cardstock: Bazzill (African Daisy, Kachina, Petunia)
Journaling Cards: Echo Park (Celebrate Easter Collection 3 x 4)
Patterned Paper: Echo Park (Celebrate Easter – Jelly Beans)
Accents/Tools: rick rack ribbon, flower, jewel, Gina Marie Dies,

Easter - Hippty Hoppity

Last Easter Card!! This one is for March 2019 Inspirational Card Challenge – theme – Lawn and Garden. This journaling card has the bunny standing in a yard with a tree and flowers. I decided to use the inside of another journaling card I cut out and it covered up the tree which I was okay with. Once the banner was on there only one flower was showing so I cut out some flowers from some paper and pop dotted them. I added a cloud since I covered up some.

Sketch: turned on its side. MOJO Monday 475

Grandpa Gold in his heart

A lady requested this quote for her grandpa’s birthday. It was a good thing that my local scrapbook store found some very old BasicGrey papers in their storage room. They had one sheet of this so I picked it up along with some others. Good thing I did because it was perfect for this saying….at least I thought so!
I used Freshly Made Sketches 276 as my inspiration.

In April I made a “DAD” card for my FIL’s birthday.  (which I apparently forgot to post!)
Dad Birthday
I showed it to a lady and she said she wanted one for her dad’s birthday. Well I didn’t have the same paper so this is what I came up with…

Stars - Dad

I put the dad on the bottom right corner this time so I moved the stars up to the left corner. She loved it!

Christmas Tree with buttons
