Easter Cards

1 Comment

Had to make some Easter Cards for a lady at the Retirement Home. So I made these for her to pick from.

Easter - One Cute Chick

I pulled out my stack of papers and found several journal card sheets. This was a journal card with more white above the chicks. I cut it off then turned it over to find the awesome orange and used it as the top of bottom. Worked perfectly for Sketch #5 of the March 2019 Card Sketch Challenge. It also fits the Spring theme of the March Inspirational Card challenge.

Supplies: 
Cardstock: Bazzill (African Daisy, Sour apple)
Patterned Paper: Echo Park (Celebrate Easter – 4 x 6 journaling cards)
Accents/Tools: scor-tape, Gingham ribbon, glue dots

Easter - Bunny has Chocolate

I made several cards up for a lady that wanted Easter cards. I used my supplies on hand and used up some journaling cards. Which worked out perfectly as that was the Product Category at the Inspirational Card Challenge on Scrapbook.com. I couldn’t use the big journaling card the way it was because the message didn’t fit. So I pulled out my handy dandy Cricut and made a new bracket shape and printed the saying on there. I cut out the rabbit from another journaling card as I thought he was perfect for this.

SUPPLIES:
Cardstock: Bazzill (Petunia, African Daisy, Kachina)
Journaling Cards: Echo Park (Celebrate Easter Collection 3 x 4 and 4 x 6)
Accents/Tools: Cricut, Elegant Edges Cricut Cartridge, EK Success 1/16 pop dots, Cutter Bee scissors

Easter - Easter Egg

Another Easter Card using up Journaling Cards which was the Product for the March 2019 Inspirational Card Challenge on Scrapbook.com. I cut out the center of the big journaling card and used it for another card. I then cut the egg out of the smaller journaling card and pop dotted it in the center of the frame.

SUPPLIES:
Cardstock: Bazzill (African Daisy, Kachina, Intense Orange)
Journaling Cards: Echo Park (Celebrate Easter Collection 3 x 4 and 4 x 6)
Accents/Tools: EK Success 1/16 pop dots, Cutter Bee scissors, Rectangle die,

Easter - Easter words

Another Easter Card using up Journaling Cards which was the Product for the March 2019 Inspirational Card Challenge on Scrapbook.com. I cut out the eggs from the large journaling card and then used a small journaling card that had all the Easter words on it. I paired them with some bright paper that reminded me of what would be on Easter eggs!

Sketch: Stella Says Sketch #601

SUPPLIES:
Cardstock: Bazzill (African Daisy, Kachina, Intense Orange, Sour Apple)
Journaling Cards: Echo Park (Celebrate Easter Collection 3 x 4 and 4 x 6)

Accents/Tools: EK Success 1/16 pop dots, Cutter Bee scissors,

Easter - Happy Easter

Another Easter Card using up Journaling Cards which was the Product for the March 2019 Inspirational Card Challenge on Scrapbook.com. I cut close around the design so I could mat it.

Journaling Cards: Echo Park (Celebrate Easter Collection 3 x 4)
Patterned Paper: Echo Park (Celebrate Easter – Jelly Beans)

Easter - Hippty Hoppity

Last Easter Card!! This one is for March 2019 Inspirational Card Challenge – theme – Lawn and Garden. This journaling card has the bunny standing in a yard with a tree and flowers. I decided to use the inside of another journaling card I cut out and it covered up the tree which I was okay with. Once the banner was on there only one flower was showing so I cut out some flowers from some paper and pop dotted them. I added a cloud since I covered up some.

Last Christmas Cards for 2017!

My last Christmas Order wasn’t due until Jan 12th so I was able to work on them the beginning of the month.

Panda Christmas

I couldn’t find Christmas Panda images that fit in my cuteness category….I’m probably going to have to break down and buy some clear stamps! So I just saw some Panda stickers in my stash the other day so I thought I would look at them and see if I could make them into a Christmas Card. Well this card design just came to me so I went with it. I was pretty excited how it turned out!

Thank you Trek for my Tim Holtz christmas word dies!!

Panda Sticker: The Paper Studio

Christmas Son-in-law - Margie

Christmas Daughter - Margie
This was the card for the lady’s daughter. She wanted a card that told her what a wonderful daughter she was. When I bought the paper in Branson and it had all these cute photo cards she picked one for SIL (see previous card) and one for her daughter. I used Jan Card Sketch #1 as my inspiration. I just moved the paper over to the left because I wanted more of it to show and added epoxy dots instead of a sentiment.

25th Birthday Bulldog

Bulldog 25th Birthday.JPG

I had two orders for birthday cards and they both have English Bulldogs. One was for a 25 year old girl and the other was for a 16 year old boy. Not finding anything on the internet that would work I put in a request for a bulldog birthday image from my husband. He created this in Photoshop and I think it turned out pretty darn cute! I used Try Stampin’ On Tuesday Sketch #308 as my inspiration…I just flipped where the string went and put mine on the bottom instead of the top. I really liked the striped paper with the image but wasn’t sure about mixing the other colors in…a little bit out of my comfort zone…but the lady loved it and so did her daughter, the birthday girl!

CHALLENGES:
1) Try Stampin’ on Tuesday Sketch #308 – use the sketch provided as your inspiration.

2) {PIN}spirational Challenge #184 – use the “pin”spirational picture to inspire your project. I went with the balloons.

SUPPLIES:
Digital Image: created in Photoshop by my husband
Inks: colored in Photoshop by my husband and printed on a Canon Inkjet Printer
Cardstock: Bazzill (Sunbeam, Admiral, white)
Patterned Paper: Echo Park Sunny Days Ahead Collection (clouds)
Accents/Tools: Paper Smooches Balloon dies, yellow/white twine, Cuttlebug Happy Birthday embossing folder, EK Succes 1/16 pop dots, Cricut Classic Font Cartridge

A farmer, a cool pop and a BBQ griller!

Cow Fathers Day

So one of the girls at work needed 3 Father’s Day Cards. This dad she said like cows and was a farmer so I said I can do that! When trying to figure how to make it Father’s Day card my husband came up with the inside sentiment “Milk it for all it’s worth!” I loved the saying and so did the lady at work.

I think I might make this into a birthday card by tying balloons to it’s tail!

CHALLENGES:
1) June Inspirational Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – Favorites Category – I used Freshly Made Sketches #1. I love this sketch and have used it several times over the years.

SUPPLIES:

Cardstock: Bazzill (Raven, lava)
Patterned Paper: cow paper found on the internet. The sentiment is on a piece of the cow paper that comes with the digital stamp.
Inks: pre-colored digital image printed on a Canon Inkjet Printer

Coolest Pop

I showed her the paper from Photo Play – This Guy Line – Keep It Handsome and she said this image was perfect. I used this card by Jody Marrow as my inspiration for the design.

Chillin & Grillin

And her other dad likes to grill. I made a card for him about three years ago but this is a completely different image and feel to the card. I found Team Dad by Echo Park at my local scrapbooking store and thought it would be perfect for several cards. I ended up messing up one of the cards so I cut the grill out of it so I could pop dot it on top of the original image.
