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.

SUPPLIES:
Digital Stamp: Airplanes @ Imagine That Digi Stamp
Metal Dies: Lawn Fawn (Stitched mountain borders, forest border), Joy Crafts (cloud)
Cardstock: Bazzill (Arctic, Hillary, Pinecone)
Ink: pre-colored digital stamp printed on Epson XP-440
Accents/Tools: EK Success 1/16 pop dots, scor-tape 1/16, 1/4

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!

Porch Swing

Porch Swing

I needed a birthday card for a lady that has a lake house and loves to be there. Also, needed a retirement card for a lady at the Retirement home who wanted to give it to the director who was retiring. So I decided this could fit both orders!
I made one a couple years ago that my husband made me because there were no digital stamps of a porch swing. But before Doodle Pantry retired she made this porch swing. So it was perfect to use in a pinch. The flowers were pink but I had my husband change them to purple to match the color challenge of the July Inspirational Card Challenge – purple & yellow! Simple card but it was perfect!

Digital Stamp: Porch Swing (Doodle Pantry no longer in business)
Cardstock: Bazzill (Sunbeam, Bouquet)

One of the mother’s day cards I made. I gave one to a friend that lost one of her sons last year. I found this sketch and it worked perfect for two cards I made this month. I used an embossing folder which was part of the technique category of the May 2019 Inspirational Card Challenge.

I used this sketch as my inspiration.

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.

Sushi Cards

Sushi

Inside:
Have a rice day!
Happy Birthday!

The two sushi and front chopstick were printed out a 2nd time and then pop dotted to give it dimension.

I made this card for a friend’s friend who was turning 95 and wanted to eat sushi. She didn’t have anyone to eat sushi with her so since my husband loves sushi he volunteered! I made this card to give her at dinner. She loved it and said it was the best birthday she could ask for!

Then I had another friend that loves sushi so I made her one too!
I then had a lady see it and want one for her weekend get together with out-of-state boyfriend. They were having a sushi themed weekend.
On the inside she requested:
Are those chopsticks? or you just happy Sashimi?
He loved it and said it was going on his desk!

Sushi - Good Times Roll

In trying to come up with the first sushi card I printed out this digital paper. I didn’t end up using it for that card but thought it would make a cute card using the same sketch but making it the focus and just a sentiment. I like how this one turned out too!

Birthday Girl

Birthday Girl - no name.jpg

My friend needed a birthday card for her granddaughter’s 6th birthday. We looked through images and she liked this image from Free Dearie Dolls. The original image had different colored dress and hair on the girl. I emailed Mary Ellen and asked if she could put straight red hair on the girl and she did! Then I colored the dress and hat in Photoshop. The other part of the image was pre-colored by Mary Ellen. I used the sketch at Atlantic Hearts Sketch for my inspiration.

The granddaughter’s name was below the image (I whited out most of it)

CHALLENGE:

Digital Image: Birthday Girl @ Free Dearie Dolls Digi Stamps
Cardstock: The Paper Studio (purple), Bazzill (Kachina, Lemonade)
