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.

Hearts & Flowers

Happy Mothers Day flowers hearts

My big boss asked me to make a card for his wife. When asked for ideals he said hearts and flowers. Well Karen picked Cardabilities #112 sketch for the bonus sketch this month and I thought it just might work…and it did! I had no ideal if she liked purple or aqua when I made this so I was glad when he told me she liked those colors!

My husband was shocked when I showed him this card…he said it was out of my comfort zone. I said it was but it was and I got to play with a bunch of my new toys. He really liked it and always encourages me to try new things or things that scare me (inks!!) This I will turn this into a couple wedding cards I have coming up!

Kissy Fish

So I had been trying to think how to make the “baby and momma valentine card” into one that could be given to a husband from a wife only. So I came up with this Kissing Fish version! I used water color design paper from Michael’s to make the fish and the background. Love paper that lets me cheat cause I can’t make my own water color paper…doesn’t turn out as good! I used the same Tuesday Morning Sketch #388 as my inspiration.

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.

2 Hearts Anniversary Card

2-hearts-anniversay-square

I made this one and decided I liked it enough I made another one for another lady who also needed an anniversary card. I made the rectangle one because she needed to mail it right away so it couldn’t be any special postage or mailing to it (square cards cost .68 and have to be Hand Stamp Only…no machine)

The bonus sketch picked out by LindsayE for the November Card Sketch Challenge inspired this card. I needed something that would work with 2 hearts and was romantic and that sketch seemed like it would work. I went through my scrap drawers and found pretty paper and here you have the finished product.

CHALLENGES:
1) November Card Sketch Challenge – bonus sketch. Original sketch was Cardabilities #131.
2) November Inspirational Card Challenge – Product – punches. Used Fiskars border punch.

SUPPLIES:
Cardstock: Bazzill (Crabapple dark)
Patterned Paper: Chatterbox
Accents/Tools: doilies, Memory Box Botanical stem die, Recollections pearls, Cricut, Basic George Cricut Cartridge
