Cardinal Wreath

So I went looking for an image for my friend that loves cardinals. I found a watercolor digital set called Songbirds @ SLS Lines. I made two different mother’s day cards using images from the set. I’m also changing out the saying and sending one to my friend to let her know I’m thinking of her…now to find time to make it!!
I used sketch #1 on the May Card Sketch Challenge @ Scrapbook.com (original sketch Atlantic Sketch Challenge #207).
It is also for May Inspirational Card Challenge – theme category – Mother’s Day/Feminine.

SUPPLIES:
Digital Image: Song Bird Watercolor Clipart @ SLSLines Etsy
Inks: pre-colored and printed on a Canon Inkjet Printer
Cardstock: Bazzill (white, Lava, Berry Blush)
Accents/Tools: cutter bee scissors, EK Success 1/16 pop dots, gems, Martha Stewart Art Lattice edge punch

Bluebird

I have a lady whose mother loves birds and bluebird just happens to be one of her favorites! So she requested this image for her Mother’s Day card. It is one of the images in the digital stamp set called Songbirds Watercolor Clipart by SLSLines. I’m also going to make it into a Birthday Card for another lady…just by changing the sentiment!

Nurse Birthday

A lady needed a birthday card for her friend who is a retired nurse. She is still active in the nursing community so she wanted a nursing theme. I used a free image from Free Dearie Dolls Digi Stamps – Get Well Mousie. I just got permission from Mary Ellen to remove the “get well” from the balloon and then my husband put “happy birthday” in there instead. Of course I used the Happy Birthday embossing folder…best and most used folder EVER!!

Mickey Happy Birthday

Mickey Happy Birthday.JPG

So I needed a Mickey Mouse inspired birthday card for a 25 yoa girl. I went through my supplies and came across some big round Disney World stickers that we got when we visited in 2006. If I remember right the stores handed them out in the bags when you purchased something. I cut the Mickey out of the sticker and made it the focal point of the card. The ideal/design of the card came from the bonus sketch of the Jan Card Sketch Challenge. The original sketch came from Pagemaps. I turned the sketch on it’s side and I replaced the strip of paper with the wording “happy birthday”. I punched the border with my new border punch. Then with the punch outs I put them randomly on the cardstock to make a patterned background. I pop dotted Mickey to give him dimension.

CHALLENGES:
1) January Inspirational Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – product category – Something new – use one of the newest items to your stash. I used the border punch, the happy birthday die and the spellbinders tool to get the diecut out. All three Christmas gifts!

So I started out making the snowflake card and I cut this piece of polka dot paper but it didn’t end up working out. So I found this square image of Santa in the paper pack and thought it fit perfectly on here once it was mounted on black cardstock. Simple but it works!

Paris

Inside: Celebrate in Style! Happy 11th Birthday!!

I made this card for my niece, Kailee, who turned 11 on Thursday. We celebrated her birthday today since she was in town. They just moved so she is doing her room in Paris (pink and black) so that is what inspired the card…that and the cute dress form from Diane’s Daydream Designs! The Paris Subway art was free at Tip Junkie. I used Sketch Saturday #321 as my inspiration.

Everything but the gray cardstock was from my scrap drawers!!
