Soccer

I had a request for a soccer themed Father’s Day card. I used the Sketch from the June Inspirational Card Challenge as my inspiration. The soccer ball is an svg file from Miss Kate Cuttables. Original sketch is from MOJO Monday #498.

SUPPLIES:

Music Wedding

I had an order for a wedding with blues and grey tones and music themed…she is an opera singer. I didn’t get to April’s Card Sketch #2 – originally a Paper Craft Crew #235 – last month and when I looked at it I thought it would work for a wedding card. This is what I came up with and was very pleased with it.

May Inspirational Card Challenge – favorites category.

SUPPLIES:
Cardstock: Bazzill (Jacaranda, cinder, smokey, bazzill white)
Accents/Tools: Twine from Target, heart rhinestones, The Paper Studio Music embossing folder, EK Success 1/16 pop dots, cricut, Basic George Cricut Cartridge

Music Birthday

So I needed a music themed birthday for a 96 year old (I made her one last year too). Since I had just made the music wedding card I thought maybe I could put flowers instead of hearts and this is how it turned out. The Recollections flowers were a RAK from TexasMomOf4 several years ago.

I made another one (see attached) but made it general birthday with a Happy Birthday embossing folder.

I used Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch #235 for my inspiration.
SUPPLIES:
Cardstock: Bazzill (Petunia, African Daisy), The Paper Studio (purple)
Accents/Tools: The Paper Studio Music embossing folder, Recollection flower pack, pink rhinestones, Doodlebug bright assortment twine, pink brads

Happy Birthday flowers

I made the music one and still had a set of flowers left so I made another one just using a Happy Birthday folder instead.

Palm Tree Beach Birthday

So I made a card similar to this one last year (see below) …but forgot to post it! But a lady requested a palm tree/beach card for her nephew. This version is different because I used a new sun die I recently got (instead of part of a circle) and made the sand bigger on this one. I made the letters the same color as the sand in hopes it looks like it was drawn in the sand!

CHALLENGES:
1) April Inspirational Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – theme – weather. Not sure if this is what Karen had in mind but it is SUNNY WEATHER on this card! (so wish I was there!)

SUPPLIES:
SVG file: Palm Tree @ Miss Kate Cuttables
Sun metal die: Stitched Sky Dies – Gina Marie Designs @ Scrapbook Outlet
Cardstock: Bazzill (kraft)
Accents/Tools: Cricut, Cuttin’ Up Cricut Cartridge, Xyron X

So here is the 2nd card using the “Away in a Manager” paper pack from The Paper Studio. I used sketch #1 in the September Card Challenge as my inspiration…just flipped so the circle was on top of the card instead of on the bottom.

I have enough paper I think I will get about 12 of these cards made.

1) September Card Sketch Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – sketch #1. Original sketch found here http://sugarpeadesigns.com/blog/2016/05/11/sugarsketch-53/
2) Christmas in September @ Scrapbook.com – make a Christmas card.

3) Sparkles Christmas Challenge Challenge #68 – Christmas Fairies or Angels.

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!

So I found a Swap thread called Angel Swap. It’s not a normal swap because you swap names of someone that could use “happy mail/encouragement” in their mailbox (like an elderly friend/relative, or friend/relative going through rough time, someone sick, etc) . Then you get a name and make that person a card. At first I thought “well I should just be making the person a card instead of some stranger” but God prompted me to play this month. This month was a little different as we sent cards to the other “angels” instead of someone we nominated. And it was funny because I got Ro and she got me!! So this card was sent to Ro because she loves daisies! I saw this trim at Hobby Lobby and thought of her and Sketch #1 of the August Card Sketch Challenge and thought they would work well together.

I also made 2 cards for sketch #1 (August Card Sketch Challenge). This was the 2nd ideal that came to me when I saw the trim!!
