Raccoon inspired cards

Racoon - Be Happy

I had a request from a lady who wanted a birthday card for her niece that was in her 20’s. One of the things she liked was raccoons so I decided this image from Gerda Steiner was perfect. The lady requested “be happy” on the sign.

SUPPLIES:
Digital Image: Racoon Digital StampGerda Steiner Stamps.
Cardstock: Bazzill (parakeet, brown, starmist, african daisy)
Metal Dies: Spellbinders (Suns and clouds), Joy crafts (clouds), io dies (tiny flowers)
Accents/tools: Nuvo drops (Ivory seashell), pop dots

I then decided this would be the perfect card to send to a nursing home in Texas asking for cards during the quarantine.

Racoon - Happy Thoughts

The guys at work told me to take a day off since it has been a stressful month. They told me to make cards or something. Well that night I saw a post where a retirement/nursing home in Texas wanted cards sent to the residents. So I told them I made this so they all they had to sign it!! What was funny was that I didn’t bring in right away and they even asked me where the card was for the “nursing home!!” They try to be tough but they have soft hearts!!

I just changed the sign to “Sending Happy Thoughts” to make it a thinking of you from Missouri card.

Cat With Sign – Birthday

Cat Sign Birthday

So I needed a card for my co-workers wife and my niece. They both like cats so I went looking in my images and found this digital stamp (also comes in a clear stamp) from Gerda Steiner (Cat Holding Sign). My co-worker got deployed at the end of Dec and his wife turned 30 this month. I know it has to be hard without her husband so I’m going to send the card with a small gift certificate to get some local Andy’s Custard!
On my niece’s card I will place her name on the sign instead of the age. Found the patterned paper in a workout paper pad from Michael’s (Craft Smith)….trying to use up some stuff on hand.

I used sketch #3 from the Jan Card Sketch Challenge on Scrapbook.com. The original sketch can be found  Here At MojoMonday.

Plane Happy Birthday

I had two birthday cards to make. One for a pilot and one for a guy who likes to fly remote controlled planes. So I used a digital stamp that I had and cut off one of the birthday messages to make it work for my design. The pilot lives where it is cold so I put snow on the mountains for his and left it off for the one that lives in Florida.

SUPPLIES:
Digital Stamp: Airplanes @ Imagine That Digi Stamp
Metal Dies: Lawn Fawn (Stitched mountain borders, forest border), Joy Crafts (cloud)
Cardstock: Bazzill (Arctic, Hillary, Pinecone)
Ink: pre-colored digital stamp printed on Epson XP-440
Accents/Tools: EK Success 1/16 pop dots, scor-tape 1/16, 1/4

Fathers Day - airplane red

Fathers Day - Airplane

I wanted to try this design (see previous airplane birthday card) but with a new die I got. So I made Father’s Day and Happy Birthday banners so it could be used for either! I made it in red and blue. A lady ordered one for her dad and grandpa so I made different colors!

Sushi Cards

Sushi

Inside:
Have a rice day!
Happy Birthday!

The two sushi and front chopstick were printed out a 2nd time and then pop dotted to give it dimension.

I made this card for a friend’s friend who was turning 95 and wanted to eat sushi. She didn’t have anyone to eat sushi with her so since my husband loves sushi he volunteered! I made this card to give her at dinner. She loved it and said it was the best birthday she could ask for!

Then I had another friend that loves sushi so I made her one too!
I then had a lady see it and want one for her weekend get together with out-of-state boyfriend. They were having a sushi themed weekend.
On the inside she requested:
Are those chopsticks? or you just happy Sashimi?
He loved it and said it was going on his desk!

Sushi - Good Times Roll

In trying to come up with the first sushi card I printed out this digital paper. I didn’t end up using it for that card but thought it would make a cute card using the same sketch but making it the focus and just a sentiment. I like how this one turned out too!

Cardinal Baseball Birthday

Oh my it has been forever since I posted on here. Actually haven’t made a ton of cards this year….personal life went crazy and had no free time. But trying to get into a new routine that includes crafting time! So welcome back!

I needed a Cardinal Baseball themed birthday card. I found the image on the internet and used sketch #1 from the Feb Card Sketch Challenge at Scrapbook.com as my inspiration. I also used KatieJo’s version of the sketch…I like how she had little hearts in the background so I used circles to look like confetti….well that was my plan anyways!

SUPPLIES:
Cardstock: Bazzill (Admiral, Bazzill Red, White)
Image: internet
Accents/Tools: Xyron X, computer, Your Next Stamp (Confetti Die)

Birthday Girl

Birthday Girl - no name.jpg

My friend needed a birthday card for her granddaughter’s 6th birthday. We looked through images and she liked this image from Free Dearie Dolls. The original image had different colored dress and hair on the girl. I emailed Mary Ellen and asked if she could put straight red hair on the girl and she did! Then I colored the dress and hat in Photoshop. The other part of the image was pre-colored by Mary Ellen. I used the sketch at Atlantic Hearts Sketch for my inspiration.

The granddaughter’s name was below the image (I whited out most of it)

CHALLENGE:
1) Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #252 – use the sketch provided as your inspiration.

SUPPLIES:
Digital Image: Birthday Girl @ Free Dearie Dolls Digi Stamps
Cardstock: The Paper Studio (purple), Bazzill (Kachina, Lemonade)
Patterned Paper: American Crafts (heat wave)
Accents/Tools: Xcut 5mm corner punch, Xyron X
