Graduation Congratulations

I had an order for a grandson who was graduating from High School. The school colors were maroon, grey, black. I also made another one that instead of the 3 stars it has 2017 in maroon.

CHALLENGES:
1) May Inspirational Card Challenge – favorites. I didn’t get to this sketch (#5) last month in Card Sketch Challenge. Original sketch is Tuesday Morning Sketches #396.

SUPPLIES:
Digital Stamp – Congratulations Graduate by Deedee Anderson. Her shop is closed but she might have it on her website http://papercraftromance.com/
Inks: pre-colored digital image printed on a Canon Inkjet Printer. I did paper piece the tassel to get it the color I wanted.
Cardstock: Bazzill (Raven, bazzill white, Ash, Crabapple dark)
Patterned Paper: Doodlebug (Valedictorian)
Accent/Tools: The Paper Studio stars embossing folder, Star brads

Graduation Doors

So I had a last minute order where the guy needed a graduation card for his grandson. He wanted 3 doors with signs and a male graduate on the card. This is what I came up with. Not super happy with the doors but that is all I could come up with quickly. He liked it so I guess it worked.

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.

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.

Recipe for A Happy Birthday

Recipe for a Happy Birthday - inside.JPG

One of my regular customers needed a birthday card for her daughter. Her daughter loves to cook. So I decided to do a recipe theme. There weren’t a lot of ideals out there and mostly were for birthday invitations. So I took some bits and pieces from some cards on the internet then added my own ingredients (ideals came from the mom on how they celebrate birthdays) to make a personalized birthday card!

The “lift category” this month in the April Inspirational Card Challenge @ scrapbook.com is to lift Cardiographer!! She is one of my favorites and is a friend of mine. She loves Doodlebug (so do I…friendship at first sight!) and she ROCKS it!! I keep telling her she needs to try out for their design team! Even though I did not “lift” a card of hers I “lifted” the use of Doodlebug which doesn’t count for the challenge but I least made a cute card!! Her cards are cuter but I tried! I fussy cut the presents out of some paper. And used a die cut to make the balloons. The recipe card was from Deedee’s Digis (no longer in business but she has some freebies on her site Papercraft Romance.)

CHALLENGES:
1) April Inspirational Card Challenge – lift Category – used Doodlebug like my friend Cardiographer does!

SUPPLIES:
Digital Image: Recipe Card from Deedee’s Digis (new site with some freebies http://papercraftromance.com/
Cardstock: Bazzill (Bubblegum,)
Patterned Paper: Doodlebug (Sugar Shoppe), (Birthday Girl on the pink dotted balloon)
Accents/Tools: Paper Smooches Balloon dies, EK Success 1/16 pop dots, black string

21st Birthday

21st Birthday

So one of my co-workers requested a 21st Birthday card for his daughter. He said an alcohol beverage was okay and to make it a fun birthday card. Well, I hope I did just that with the bright colors and design.  He said he liked it!

I used sketch #142 at Feeling Sketchy for my design. I found the bubbly drink sticker in my stash that matched perfectly with the Doodlebug glitter stickers I used for the “21”. I finally got to use the frame with bubbles from the Elegant Edges Cricut Cartridge!!!
