Plane Happy Birthday

I had two birthday cards to make. One for a pilot and one for a guy who likes to fly remote controlled planes. So I used a digital stamp that I had and cut off one of the birthday messages to make it work for my design. The pilot lives where it is cold so I put snow on the mountains for his and left it off for the one that lives in Florida.

Cardstock: Bazzill (Arctic, Hillary, Pinecone)

Fathers Day - Airplane

I wanted to try this design (see previous airplane birthday card) but with a new die I got. So I made Father’s Day and Happy Birthday banners so it could be used for either! I made it in red and blue. A lady ordered one for her dad and grandpa so I made different colors!

Cactus Cards

Cactus Mothers Day

I have a standing order for cactus/southwest Mother’s Day card for one of the guys at work. So I bought some cactus dies and this is what I came up with. Used the same sketch I did for the rose card but did it a little different. That’s what I love about sketches….can make so many different types of cards from one sketch. I used an embossing folder to make the background which was the technique category of the May Card Challenge.

I used this sketch as my inspiration.

I used this color combo as my inspiration.

Panda Love pink

So I almost forgot to check out the monthly image at Gerda Steiner Designs. I’m so glad I checked with a few days left because it was this adorable panda. So I pulled out some new Queen & Co paper I bought and asked my husband to color it up in photoshop to match. My printer prints darker and not always the color on the screen so the first print was more green (see 2nd version) then the color in the striped paper. So after several attempts we got the color to match the papers and that is this version! I used Atlantic Hearts Sketch #248 as my inspiration.

CHALLENGES:

I didn’t want to waste the first print out so I found paper that matched it and made this version. Well good thing I did because a lady bought one of each for her nieces!

Things that fly

So the theme of the December Inspirational Card Challenge at Scrapbook.com was Things that Fly. Here are two cards I made.

Unicorn Magical Birthday

I had a request for a 7th birthday party with the theme of unicorns and rainbows. She sent me this card as an ideal of what she liked. The original card has rainbow lines behind the unicorn that reminded me of the paint splatter stamps that TexasMomOf4 always used so I had to buy some! So I finally got them out after having the stamps over a year! I found the unicorn digital stamp at Huckleberry Hearts. I used sketch #2 from November Card Sketch Challenge. Original sketch found at Taylored Expressions.

Butterfly - remake.JPG

I made a card like this out of different doodlebug paper to send to a couple friends. Never got them sent 😦 I thought I had posted the Friend card but couldn’t find it in my files. Well several ladies at my card sell requested it as a Birthday Card instead of a friend card. So this is the Birthday Version.

Rockin around the Christmas Tree

Rockin Around Christmas Tree

I had a request for a guitar themed Christmas card. I found this SVG/digital stamp file. The original has the “as” partial on the guitar. Any way the way the guitar was in my cutting program there were way to many little pieces. So I asked my husband to separate guitar so I could just print it as one piece and add it to the cut out letters. Since all those letters were cut on the cricut I only made one card. If I can figure out how to do differently I make more!

SUPPLIES:
Digital Stamp/SVG file: Rockin Around the Christmas Tree from Scarlett Rose Designs
Cardstock: Bazzill (Raven, Classic Yellowgreen, Bazzill Red)
Accents/Tools: Xyron X, EK Success 1/16 pop dots

Cabin with chair

Cabin with chair

I had an order for a lady that works in NY but has a cabin she lives in when not working. She loves to go to cabin and enjoy nature. So when I found The Great Outdoors Kit (or cheaper version is Camping Kids) at Imagine That Digi Shop I knew it would be perfect. I added an extra tree to my scene. Pop dotted the fire wood stack, chair and the knobs sticking out on the actually cabin to make it feel more real. I still haven’t quiet figured out how to make my grass longer than the die without leaving that little mark…if you know the secret please do tell. The lady loved it and has it displayed on her work desk to reminder her of “cabin life”.

CHALLENGES:
1) Creative Link Up @ Imagine That Creative Playground – make a card and link it up. If you use an Imagine That Digi then you get the stamp of the month for free.

Clean Cards

Swept up Garage

Inside:
So I swept the garage so the Easter Bunny could bring you a new tool!

While my husband was gone last week I decided to clean out the garage as a surprise for him. I wanted to make him a card to sit on his bench so he would get it when he walked into the garage. So I had ideals but when Karen posted the April Inspirational Card Challenge – bonus category – Clean… the cleaning images at Imagine That Digital Stamps came to mind. I told my girlfriend what my thoughts were for the saying and she put it together and made it sound good. He not only liked the garage but he said he also liked the card!

I used Tuesday Morning Sketches #397 as my inspiration (posted to late to enter the challenge!)

So while I was getting ideals I saw some funny house cleaning sayings so I decided to use the rest of my scraps and make some funny cards with this design. See attached cards.

CHALLENGES:
1) April Inspirational Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – bonus – clean. This is what I thought of when I saw the word “clean”.
2) Imagine That! April Link Up Challenge – Anything Goes. If you use an Imagine That Digital Image then you get the stamp of the month for FREE!!

SUPPLIES:
