Cactus Mothers Day

I have a standing order for cactus/southwest Mother’s Day card for one of the guys at work. So I bought some cactus dies and this is what I came up with. Used the same sketch I did for the rose card but did it a little different. That’s what I love about sketches….can make so many different types of cards from one sketch. I used an embossing folder to make the background which was the technique category of the May Card Challenge.

I used this sketch as my inspiration.

I used this color combo as my inspiration.

Christmas Tree with buttons

I had this image on my desk with buttons that I pulled for it earlier in the year but never made a card with it. I needed a card for a regular customer so I thought this image would work perfectly.

I used Freshly Made Sketches #268 for my inspiration.

Birthday Flowers v1

I had a request for a birthday card for a lady that loves flowers and lives in Florida. I sent the customer some images and she liked Fred, She Said Designs – watercolor floral corner stamp.

So I found 2 cards and a sketch that inspired me so I decided to make all three and let her pick which one she wanted. Which also fit the Oct Inspirational Card Challenge – Bonus category which was to make at least 2 different cards with the same image….I made 3. I also used one of the sketches from Jillibean Soup’s Blog that they had posted for World Card Making Day. I didn’t use any Jillibean Soup product so I won’t enter it into the challenge but it still inspired my card!

*Note: this image was water colored by the artist and sold as a pre-colored digi! Which is great for us who can’t color well at all!!*

Out of the three cards she picked this one!

SUPPLIES:
Digital Image: Watercoloured Doodled Floral Corner with Butterflies @ Fred, She Said Designs.
Inks: PRE-COLORED digital image printed on Canon Inkjet printer.
Cardstock: Bazzill (Raven, AFrican Daisy)

Here is the 2nd card I made using the same digital image.  I used this card Yana Smakula’s blog for my inspiration. I don’t stamp so I printed and cut out the digital image and adhered it with the xyron 510.

I needed a flamingo Mother’s Day card for a grandma. I have been making her cards for the past 4-5 years and she always gets a flamingo. I tried to use sketch #3 of the Card Sketch Challenge but the flamingo was too big so it didn’t come out looking like the sketch too much. But it was my inspiration. I used foil paper in the background and cut the words out of gold paper.

Challenges:
1) May Inspirational Card Challenge – Product: foil
2) May Card Sketch Challenge -sketch #3 – original Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch #240.

SUPPLIES:
Flamingo die cut – My Mind’s Eye (on trend 2)
Cardstock: Bazzill (Patina, Petunia)

I also got to use new goodies I had just ordered after being influenced on here that I needed these goodies!
