One of the guys at work has a standing order for a flamingo for grandma and warm/southwest Christmas for mom. Well I forgot to take a picture of Grandma’s card. But this is the one I did for his mom. Santa, presents and top of the umbrella are all pop dotted for dimension. I saw the saying on the internet.

This was another card made for the regular (guy from our old church) card customer that needed 20 cards. I had bought a 6 x 6 paper pad at Hobby Lobby in the fall because it was cute and on sale. Well it was perfect as I made several cards from the paper in the pack. I used Tuesday Morning Sketches #371 as my inspiration.

Another one made with the 6 x 6 paper pad since I needed to make 20 cards quick. I started out with a sketch but it didn’t work so ended up with this.

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!

Don’t be Naughty

I have a standing order for a lady at work to make her daughter, son-in-law, and 3 grandchildren cards for Christmas. She said for her son-in-law this year she wanted something to do coal and “don’t be naughty”. Well I immediately thought of this Santa looking at his list from Gerda Steiner Designs – Wishlist Santa. I found this saying on the internet and then the inside says “Don’t be Naughty! Merry Christmas”. She said it was perfect and exactly what she wanted. I used Sketch Saturday #430.

CHALLENGES:

Gift Cards and Money Holders

4 Comments

In October I made a gift card holder so when I sold my cards at our work bazaar I placed them out and let people know I could make different ones since I ran out of time to have several designs displayed. I got orders….so I had to make up more!! I also had a lady ask if I could do money cards so I told her yes, so I had to make those up too. Now money cards were a little tricky finding a size that looked right for money and then finding envelopes. I got my inspiration from this blog but she used Stampin’ Up envelopes that I believe are discontinued as I couldn’t find them in a current catalog.  I figured out what size I needed it to be around and after searching the internet I found 3 7/8 x 7 1/2 envelopes at envelopesexpress.com so the finished card is 3 1/2 x 7 1/4.

I started with the gift cards holders since I already had one made for the order (the deer I made in October). She also wanted the cat image I made a card with and then an ice skater. I was excited about the ice skater as I bought this image, Bella Ice Skate, by Kristi Dailey several years ago and have never had the time to use it. She said the girls hair was between a blond and light brown so I did both and she chose the blond! The original gift card holder ideal I got my inspiration from was at Dawn’s Stamping Thoughts.

The lady who wanted the money orders wasn’t exactly sure what images she wanted so I made up an ice skater and the reindeer and sent her photos.

I used I {heart} Sketches #101 as my inspiration.

So Cool turned into Christmas

5 Comments

So the Digi of the Month at DeeDee’s Digital, So Cool,  is this adorable penguin in a Bathtub…

DASoCoolPROMOPIC

but I could not figure out a card using it the way it was so I started thinking Christmas card. Well, after I saw Pippa’s totally cool card that she entered I wish I would have thought tropical drinks! But instead of copying Pippa I decided to stick to my Christmas ideal. I had my husband put the santa hat from Doodle Pantry’s Santa Accessories Digital Stamp on the penguin. I struggled with coming up with a card for several hours. During that struggle I created this card but didn’t like the penguin on it (didn’t say Christmas to me) so I stuck a Mickey sticker and turned it into a birthday card.

Sketch: Deconstructed Sketch #90

CHALLENGES:

1) August Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – Theme Category – Birthday

2) Seize the Birthday – Create a Birthday and use the topping of all yellow if you want. I did not use the topping.

So I decided I needed more color so I cut out the presents and pop dotted them in front of the penguin. The presents are also from the Santa Accessories Digital Image.
