Rainbow Inspired Cards

1 Comment

Another one of the guys at work gets a mother’s day card for his mom and her theme is rainbows. So I made two versions and then made it in other colors case other people liked the design.

 

Happy Mothers Day Rainbow1

He chose this full rainbow one for his mom!

Another customer chose the same full rainbow one for her 3 daughters!

Happy Mothers Day pink-orange1

Happy Mothers Day pink-blue1

Happy Mothers Day yellow1

I made the yellow one for another customer whose wife loves yellow and they have 9 kids so I represented that with 9 hearts and a big heart for the husband.

Here is Version 2.

Happy Mothers Day v2

I found inspiration for V1 and V2 cards on Jennifer McGuire’s blog.

Cat With Sign – Birthday

1 Comment

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)
Patterned Paper: Michael’s Paper Pad/Craft Smith (Working on my Fitness)
Metal Dies: Avery Ellie (Pro Banner), Sizzix (dotted Circles),
Accents/Tools: EK Success 1/16 pop dots, Queen & Co Epoxy white dots,
Inks/Pens: Stampin’ Up
Digital Stamp: Cat Holding Signat Gerda Steiner (also comes in clear stamp called All Cats)

 

Country Home Cards

1 Comment

Last year I went on a Scrapbooking cruise out of Galvaston, Texas. It was put on by a couple Stampin’ Up Demonstrators. Which I have really never used their products because I’m not a stamper! Well they had some items set up that you could make if you wanted and you were given the products to make them. They had a cute fall hanger but I didn’t need a fall hanger so I took the supplies home and decided I could make cards out of it. So here are three cards I have come up with so far.

Grateful Heart

I used Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! May 25, 2017 sketch for my inspiration.

Hummingbird

Hummingbird - 4

I have a standing order for hummingbirds for Mother’s Day. I broke down and bought “Humming Along” by Stampin’ Up. So glad I did. Since I’m not a stamper or good at coloring I decided to stamp on paper that was done like watercolor! Then I used the dies to cut it out. I used the abstract image that comes in the die as the background. It took me a little bit to figure out how to do it since the gold was thin and when it went through the xyron it would be hard to put it on without it ripping. Finally glued the gold on some plain cardstock and then cut it.

Even though the sketch showed ink I did a die cut….which is more my style!

Flamingo Mother's Day

I have to do a flamingo card for a co-workers grandmother every year. This is her 2019 Mother’s Day card. I had to use less lighting for the photo to show the 3 embossed lines on the left. Used sketch #5 from the April Card Sketch Challenge. I made the card horizontal instead of vertical. Also for the April Inspirational Card Challenge – bonus – mother’s Day.

SUPPLIES:
Digital Image: Endless Summer from Digi Web Studio (no longer available)
Cardstock: Bazzill (Flamingo, Lagoon)
Accents/Tools: Kaiserscrapbook rhinestone (island lagoon), Stampin Up (Seaside embossing folder), scor-pal

Digital Image: Aloha Floral @ https://www.etsy.com/shop/YenzArtHaut
