Things that fly

1 Comment

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.

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.

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.

SUPPLIES:

Cardstock: Bazzill (Raven, bazzill white, Ash, Crabapple dark)

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 inspired cards

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
