Hooked on You

As soon as I saw this image in Dec at Imagine That Digi Stamps I had to have it. In 2002 my husband and I went to Exotic Animal Paradise in our jeep without the doors and top on. We had a blast…so did the animals! A Llama came up to my husbands side and started rubbing his head on my husband’s chest and trying to snuggle up to my husband. It was sooo cute! So I called it Llama Love! So I thought this image would make a perfect Valentine’s card for my hubby! I used this weeks MOJO Monday #484 sketch as my inspiration. I realize now I left off the horizontal strip but I think you can still tell it was inspired by the sketch.

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.

Fishing Father's Day.JPG

Sorry not the greatest photo as I took it with my phone…totally forgot to get one with my real camera!

So one of the guys at work bought some of my cards and sent it to his parents. Well his mom now has placed orders that last through out the year. She didn’t order a Father’s Day card (long story) so her son decided to order one for her. So I made it and sent it to her as a surprise. She loved that her son and I did that for her. I used scraps from my scrap drawers.

RAWR!

Rawr Valentine

This is my husband’s Valentine card. I didn’t know what I wanted to make him so while I was creating cards today I was thinking about it. He just got me some items off my internet wish lists for my birthday so I thought it would be cool to use something he bought me. Well my husband is also good at pushing my creativity and helping me try new things. I have been wanting to do more misting to get better at it and figure it out. So he bought be some ink powder…which I didn’t know existed. So when I was looking through my scraps I saw paper with dinosaurs on it and remembered this saying. I thought it might match the orange powder he got me. So here is my attempt at spritzing. I put some in a bottle with water to make orange but it really didn’t turn out. So then I sprinkled the powder on the paper and spritzed water on it. The other way is to spritz water on paper and sprinkle powder in it. Depending on how much water mixed with the powder seem to decide what color came out…red, orange, yellow. I got the color palette from the dinosaur paper.

I used the sketch from Feb Inspirational Card Challenge – sketch category…finally got it pretty close to the original!

So I realized today as I was looking through my files that I’m way behind in posting as I haven’t posted the Valentine Cards made with Doodle Pantry images! So here is trying to catch up after the holidays…just in time for Mother’s Day card making frenzy to start!!

Valentine Monster Truck

One of my regular’s at work wanted Valentine cards for her 3 boys. This is what I made the 5 year old…..it was the perfect image for a 5 yoa boy in my opinion!! I used I {heart} sketches #37 as my inspiration.

She also needed 2 teacher cards. I only had one made so I made this one….which is similar to the other one I made a couple years ago. This card was inspired by Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 sketch #43.

Teacher for ewe

Another lady at work need a card with a walrus on it so this image, Critter Friends, at Doodle Pantry was perfect!! I used the Card Sketch #41 at Sketch n Scrap for my inspiration!

Walrus Valentine

And the last one I made for my husband! I never tell him enough how good looking he really is….so I thought this was a good way!

Gift in a Box Card

I made this for my husband yesterday because it was his birthday. I had been trying to figure out what I was going to make because I like it to be personal and made especially for him. As I went to bed Friday night this ideal popped in my head. My friend helped me tweak the sentiment so it sounded right.

I used a present image from a Christmas digi stamp, Wrapped in Cheer Outlines, at Diane’s Daydream Designs. The colors I picked to use are for my husband as he likes darker shades with black being his favorite. The green on the bow didn’t turn out as dark as I wanted but didn’t notice till I was sticking it on the card so I left it.

CHALLENGES:
1) September Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – Favorites Category – Try Stampin’ on Tuesday #177
2) Squigglefly Challenge #36 – Stripes.
3) Aud Sentiments Challenge #115 – For the men in our life.

SUPPLIES:
Digital Image: Wrapped in Cheer Outline Image @ Diane’s Daydream Designs
Cardstock: Bazzill
Patterned Paper:
Inks: colored in photoshop and printed on Canon Inkjet Printer
Accents/Tools: cutter bee scissors, pop dots
