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.

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

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!

Hippo Mother’s Day Card

Hippo Mothers Day

I have been making one of the guys at work Mother’s Day cards for his wife for the past 6 years (if not longer). He likes to have his kids represented on the card if possible. This year I found out she likes hippos so I remembered Gerda Steiner cute Hippo Stamp. It is no longer a digi stamp so I had to buy the clear stamp – Hippo with Butterfly. Now most of you know I am not a stamper and coloring is not my thing. Well I tried to color him and it looked horrible. After telling off my friends (Karen & Ro) that make stamping look easy God reminded me that wasn’t nice and to do what I’m comfortable with!! So I stamped on cardstock and paper pieced!! I love how he turned out. I found this color combo and used it for my inspiration.

I then had my husband design the saying for the shirt and I ran the shirt through the printer to print it on the shirt.

I used sketch #2 from May 2019 Card Sketch Challenge. I flipped it upside down and then added balloons coming from the original image.

SUPPLIES:
Stamp: Hippo with Butterfly @ Gerda Steiner Designs
Cardstock: Bazzill
Accents/Tools: Lawn Fawn Party Balloons, black string, EK Success 1/16 pop dots

Plaid Snowman w-stickles

My Christmas stash is gone so needed to make some Christmas cards. When I saw this FREE image I thought it would make super cute cards and I have a friend that would love it! And I think my step-MIL will like this one too! One of my regulars needed a card for a friend of his and he didn’t have anything in mind. So I thought this would work. I sent him a photo and his response was “can I have that one for my mom instead!” He said she loves Cardinals. So then I had to think of another card for his friend (see button Christmas tree). I added stickles to the snowflakes and snow mounds but the snowflake sparkle didn’t show up very well. I used this card from Taylored Expressions as my inspiration.
