Hanging Stockings

Hanging Christmas Stockings.JPG

Wasn’t sure if a regular was going to get cards this year but on the 13th he called and needed 20 cards by the 16th. So I had about 10 on hand that I didn’t think he got last year so I plugged away for 2 days and got 10 more cards made. This is one of them…I made 2 with different stockings hanging…that is all I could make with the scrap that the stockings came from. The red polka dot and gray cardstock are also scraps. Trying to use them up but still can’t tell by looking at my overflowing scrap drawers! White rick rack and tiny brads from Paper Studio (didn’t think I would use the super mini ones but they are coming in handy).

CHALLENGES:
1) December Inspirational Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com  – Color Challenge – use the colors provided. My shades are not exact but in the family.
2) December Card Sketch Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – Sketch #5. I felt something needed to hang in that space and what better than stockings!!  Original sketch is from MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #307 (MFTWSC307)

SUPPLIES:
Patterned Paper: Stockings – Photo Play Paper Dear Santa Collection (Fa La La), Red Polka Dot – unknown
Cardstock: Bazzill (gray very old, White)
Accents/Tools: Paper Studio brads, white rick rack, 1/16 EK Success pop dots, Cutter bee scissors

Final Batch of Mothers Day Cards

1 Comment

So this week I made the last of the Mother’s Day Cards that were needed for the people at work.

Flamingo Mothers  Day

INSIDE: To the best Nana anyone could ever wish for! Happy Mother’s Day

I have a standing order for a guy at work to make a Flamingo card for his Grandma on Christmas and Mother’s Day. Here is this years Flamingo Best Nana anyone could ever wish for card!!

CHALLENGES:
1) May Card Sketch Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – Sketch 3 – original sketch is from The sweet Stop sketchChallenge Blog #144

Butterflies

One of the guys at work wanted a Mother’s Day card with a Rainbow theme since his mother loves rainbows. This card was inspired by a card I found on Pinterest – http://iminhaven.blogspot.com/2012/01/color-my-world.html I didn’t have a flower die or punch that would work for this so a trip to Michael’s was the solution. I bought a Martha Stewart anywhere punch of a butterfly. It was too big to do the original design so this is what I came up with.

I did a 2nd card and messed up on the punching so I put the sentiment on the outside. Which do you like better?? Please let me know as I want to make more and I can’t decide which one to do.

CHALLENGES:
1) May Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – Favorites Category – Recreate a card or sketch you’ve saved in your favorites either on this site, a blog, or Pinterest.

Butterfly Mothers Day

Here is another version but this one has the saying on the outside.

Which do you like better?? Please let me know as I want to make more and I can’t decide which one to do.

I made this for another guy at work. He has 3 boys and he wanted that represent on the card. Since I was already making an Owl card for my boss who has 4 kids I stuck with the owls for this card too.

So I’m sure you are just dying to see what images I got to play with so far this month. I picked two for release day but I have plenty of ideals in my head so there is no telling how many I will get done this month. I first played with Sitting Peacock image which is an older outline image that she has now added color to it and a NEW image of the peacock.

I made the first card and wasn’t sure it showed it off as well as I wanted so I made card #2 also. So hopefully you can truly see how beautiful and versatile this image is to work with!

SittingPeacock1

By the way if you want a perfect match on the cardstock she provides solid colors along with the patterned paper. So I printed it off on Bazzill white and had perfectly matching bazzill color paper! LOVE IT!!
