Sending You Love

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:
Jan Inspirational Card Challenge – Favorites – Atlantic Hearts Sketch #248.

SUPPLIES:
Digital Image: Panda in Love @ Gerda Steiner Designs

Panda Love green

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

She just happened to have this skeleton scarecrow and the girl said it was perfect. Then she said “make it spooky”! Well this is as spooky as I could get with the spooky cute image! She loves it so that is good! I used Sketch #4 from the October Card Sketch Challenge.

Birthday Flowers v1

I had a request for a birthday card for a lady that loves flowers and lives in Florida. I sent the customer some images and she liked Fred, She Said Designs – watercolor floral corner stamp.

So I found 2 cards and a sketch that inspired me so I decided to make all three and let her pick which one she wanted. Which also fit the Oct Inspirational Card Challenge – Bonus category which was to make at least 2 different cards with the same image….I made 3. I also used one of the sketches from Jillibean Soup’s Blog that they had posted for World Card Making Day. I didn’t use any Jillibean Soup product so I won’t enter it into the challenge but it still inspired my card!

*Note: this image was water colored by the artist and sold as a pre-colored digi! Which is great for us who can’t color well at all!!*

I have been studying for a promotion at work for the past 3-4 months so I only crafted orders that had to be done. I didn’t even have time to post them. So I hope to do that as life is finally calming down and going back to normal.

I made a birthday card for a dear friend of mine. I’m late on making it and sending it as time has not been on my side. Better late then never…I did text her on her birthday so I didn’t forget! I showed it to a customer and he ordered one for a friend of his that loves to garden.

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”.
