Wonderful Mother

Down to the wire but I made it! This is for the Imagine That Creative Playground Monthly Challenge. Link up a card using an Imagine That image and you get the month’s featured image! I really wanted this months featured image for Easter Cards!

I won a whole set of digital stamps in February from Imagine That Digital Stamps and this was one of the images from the Beary in Love Kit. I fussy cut out the flowers and added real pearls on top of the digital ones.

I used I {heart} Sketches #164 for my inspiration so it fit the Favorites Category of the March Inspirational Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com.

SUPPLIES:
Digital Image: Beary in Love Kit @ Imagine That Digital Stamps
Cardstock: Bazzill (Lava, Kachina), American Crafts (Bubblegum)

16th Birthday Bulldog

Bulldog 16th Birthday.JPG

In last post I showed the card for the girl so this post is the card I did for the 16 yoa boy who also owns an English Bulldog.

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 #309 as my inspiration. Instead of three images on the left I went with a present and balloons tied to the present. Instead of a sentiment I placed the bulldog there. The embossed background has the sentiment in it “Happy Birthday!”

CHALLENGES:
1) Try Stampin’ on Tuesday Sketch #309 – use the sketch provided to inspire a card.

2) Crafting by Designs – Polka Dot challenge – I used polka dots in 2 of 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 (Admiral, Parakeet, Red Devil)
Patterned Paper: scraps from my scrap drawer
Accents/Tools: Paper Smooches Balloon dies, red/white twine, Cuttlebug Happy Birthday embossing folder, EK Succes 1/16 pop dots, Cricut Classic Font Cartridge

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

xoxo-piggy-valentine

This is another card the lady at work wanted. This one is for her granddaughter (almost 1) to give to her mom (the ladies daughter). She wanted a pig with this saying:
Love you little!
Love you BIG!
Love you just like a little PIG!!
Happy Valentine’s Day
(the ladies MIL use to say this to her daughter…so a family saying)

I put the saying inside the card and used this cute pig from Imagine That! Digi Stamp on the front. All the paper came from my scrap drawers! Yep, I have way to many scraps!!!I used Atlantic Hearts Sketch #198 for my inspiration.

Dino Valentine Cards

dino-across-the-miles-valentines

My Godparents sent an email that their grandson’s teacher sent out. She asked for Valentine cards to be sent to the child at school so they could learn about different places in the world. So I asked what he likes being 6 yoa and in 1st grade and was told dinosaurs, Pokemon and Star Wars. Mary Ellen drew some cute dinosaurs at Free Dearie Dolls Digi Stamps so I used one of them. I decided for the squares to use small version of the states that the card was coming from (Missouri) and going to (California). I used MOJOMonday #482 sketch but instead of a circle inside I went with a jagged edge square.

See next post for card without maps.

CHALLENGES:
1) Feb Card Sketch Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – sketch #2.
2) Feb Inspirational Card Challenge – theme – love.

SUPPLIES:
Cardstock: Bazzill (Lava, Evening surf, Pansy)
Images: free maps on internet, Valentine Boy T-rex @ Free Dearie Dolls Digital Images.
Accents/Tools: Cricut, Elegant Edges Cricut Cartridge, cutter bee scissors, EK Success 1/16 pop dots

Inside:
Hope your
Valentine’s Day
is Dino-mite!

Since the dino is so cute and funny I decided he needed to be sent to my guy friend, Dale. I try to send Dale a card for each of the holidays…who doesn’t need happy mail?!!

So I apparently put my paper in wrong in the embossing folder because the textured side go the indent embossing (not sure what that is called) so I decided to use it! I thought it worked great with getting the love/valentine theme across without being a lovey dovey card! I hope the dino makes him smile like it makes me!

CHALLENGES:

Happy Valentine’s Day from momma and baby fish

nside: Our baby boy and I love you so much! Happy Valentine’s Day.

So a coworker is pregnant with their first baby. She asked for a card to give to her husband for Valentine’s that would be from her and their baby boy on the way. So went looking for pregnant woman images and then looked for mommy and baby animal images. This is an image from Coloring Pages For Kids. It was perfect as he is a fishermen. My husband colored it in Photoshop and then I cut them out so I could position them how I needed them on the card. I used Tuesday Morning Sketches #388 for my inspiration.
