Rainbows, unicorns and scraps of cardstock!

Leave a comment

In 2020 I made mother's day cards using strips of cardstock. I did this because I needed a rainbow inspired card for a mother that loves rainbows! Since then I have made several different cards with the same concept.

In February 2021 I made these for a couple orders:
SUPPLIES:
Metal Dies: Sizzix (Stephanie Barnard -Stars), Stampin' Up (Stitched Stars), Creative Expressions (Happy Birthday CEDSS009)
Embossing Folder: Darice (stars assorted)
In September 2021 I made these:
The small note card "Yay" (yay is in black) was for a young girl starting 6th grade. It was to encourage to have fun and enjoy the 6th grade. 
SUPPLIES:
Metal Die: Concord and 9th (Yay Dies #10373), Sizzix (Stephanie Barnard -Stars), Stampin' Up (Stitched Stars), Creative Expressions (Happy Birthday CEDSS009)
In November a friend of mind needed a unicorn or rainbow card for her granddaughter so I made these using both! She picked the pink and blue one! The unicorn given to me by my friend Ro!! Thanks Ro!
SUPPLIES:
Metal Die: Recollections Cut & Emboss (Unicorn), Sizzix (Stephanie Barnard -Stars), Creative Expressions (Happy Birthday CEDSS009)
Accents/Tools: Wink of Stella (on the unicorn to make it sparkle), vellum, Xyron X, Gina K Designs (Foam Tape 3.6m)

Card Kit done in my style!

1 Comment

So we went to Texas this past week for a week of craftiness! And it was just what I needed. We were snowed in so we had nothing to do but relax and play. Before the snow hit we met up with another crafty friend in the area that is a Stampin’ Up Demonstrator and she put on a little get together/card class. She had the You Are Amazing Card Kit for us to split so we could make 2 cards each. I love the stuff in the kit but the cards are not my style so I asked if I could make cards at home in my own style and she said I could. I did not think the shinny blue paper went with these colors and the design just didn’t speak to me. These are my versions made with the kit stuff! Still have a couple more to make but these spoke to me while I was cleaning so I crafted instead of cleaning!!

Watering Can Card: 
I had the watering can and tulips in my die cuts and had not used them yet and they were perfect...at least in my opinion!!
I used sketch #5 of the Feb Card Sketch Challenge @ Scrapbook.com. I'm also entering it into the Feb Inspirational Card Challenge - product - flowers.

SUPPLIES:
Patterned Paper - Stampin' Up (You are Amazing Card Kit)
Cardstock: Bazzill (Piglet, Candle, Parakeet)
Metal Dies: Impression Obsession Dies (IO Dies) - Tulips (die147-A), Watering Can (die155-A)
Embossing Folder: Cuttlebug (swiss dots)
Wild Flowers Card:
I originally did the design horizontal with a big sentiment stamp in the middle and two flower lying across the card. Well my first attempt one of the yellow stripes on the end was way skinner then the other end. So I decided if I turned it horizontal then it looked better. In doing so I took off the sentiment and placed the three flowers and liked it better. This 2nd card I was able to get the yellow layers more even. I used Sketch #1 from the Feb Inspirational Card Challenge (long and skinny 9 1/4 x 3 3/4 fits in long skinny envelope usually used for bills....much better to get this than bills!!) I thought these wildflowers stems #2 from Tim Holtz matched the paper pretty darn good! Was happy how this turned out.

SUPPLIES:
Patterned Paper - Stampin' Up (You are Amazing Card Kit) 
Cardstock: Bazzill (Blue Calypso, Whirlpool, Candle)
Metal Dies: Sizzix (Tim Holtz Wildflowers Stems #2)

Cat With Sign – Birthday

Cat Sign Birthday

So I needed a card for my co-workers wife and my niece. They both like cats so I went looking in my images and found this digital stamp (also comes in a clear stamp) from Gerda Steiner (Cat Holding Sign). My co-worker got deployed at the end of Dec and his wife turned 30 this month. I know it has to be hard without her husband so I’m going to send the card with a small gift certificate to get some local Andy’s Custard!
On my niece’s card I will place her name on the sign instead of the age. Found the patterned paper in a workout paper pad from Michael’s (Craft Smith)….trying to use up some stuff on hand.

I used sketch #3 from the Jan Card Sketch Challenge on Scrapbook.com. The original sketch can be found  Here At MojoMonday.

SUPPLIES:
Cardstock: Bazzill (Whirlpool, lily pond, Kachina, velvet)

xoxo-piggy-valentine

This is another card the lady at work wanted. This one is for her granddaughter (almost 1) to give to her mom (the ladies daughter). She wanted a pig with this saying:
Love you little!
Love you BIG!
Love you just like a little PIG!!
Happy Valentine’s Day
(the ladies MIL use to say this to her daughter…so a family saying)

I put the saying inside the card and used this cute pig from Imagine That! Digi Stamp on the front. All the paper came from my scrap drawers! Yep, I have way to many scraps!!!I used Atlantic Hearts Sketch #198 for my inspiration.

Sympathy Bird

sympathy-brown-gold-bird

I needed a sympathy card for a lady at work. I just used some stickers from this package so I thought that the bird would make a good sympathy card. So I looked through my sketches and liked the sketch picked for the Feb Inspirational Card Challenge @ scrapbook.com. I went through all my scraps and just couldn’t find anything that worked so I would to my closet full of paper racks. I pulled out my brand new DCWV Violet Leaf paper pack and it had paper with gold foil on it!! It was perfect…thank you Flutterbye0419 for telling me I NEEDED this paper pack last month!! And this is what came together when I combined my supplies and sketch! I was pretty pleased with it…different then what I normally do but I like it!
