Hearts & Flowers

Happy Mothers Day flowers hearts

My big boss asked me to make a card for his wife. When asked for ideals he said hearts and flowers. Well Karen picked Cardabilities #112 sketch for the bonus sketch this month and I thought it just might work…and it did! I had no ideal if she liked purple or aqua when I made this so I was glad when he told me she liked those colors!

My husband was shocked when I showed him this card…he said it was out of my comfort zone. I said it was but it was and I got to play with a bunch of my new toys. He really liked it and always encourages me to try new things or things that scare me (inks!!) This I will turn this into a couple wedding cards I have coming up!

CHALLENGES:
1) May Inspirational Card Challenge – theme – Mother’s Day
2) May Card Sketch Category – bonus sketch

SUPPLIES:
Cardstock: Bazzill (velvet, snapdragon, Artesian Pool, Atlantic)
Gold Paper: Paper Studio

This is my 2nd card with sketch #1 from the August Card Sketch Challenge. I saw this sketch and thought it would be perfect for a friend of mine who just became a grandma for the first time. The colors on the card are the colors of the nursery. I wanted a fun happy card cause that is the type of grandma my friend will be. Now the card didn’t come out as cute as I pictured but she loved it so that is all that matters. And I finally used my Sew Easy that I have had forever!!

1) August Card Sketch – sketch #1
2) August Inspirational Card Challenge – Bonus – Make a simplistic card.

Stitchy Cross

I made this for my friend I met on-line several years ago. Her 18 yr old son was diagnosed last month, Dec 2014, with bone cancer. He has started his 6 month chemo treatments. I made him a card but I also wanted to make her a card to encourage her as she goes through this battle with him. When praying and asking God what she needed to hear he advised me to send this verse. So I paired it with a stitched cross from Deedee’s Digis. The design inspiration for this card came from the Deconstructed Sketch # 183.

CHALLENGES:

1) Suzy Bee’s Bloomin’ Challenge #65 – Stitching – faux or real. I went with the stitching in the design of the cross.

So my neighbor/friend’s birthday was the 11th and I knew she liked the color blue, Disney, nature and flowers. So I designed this card with that in mind….she liked it!!

School Girl

I wanted to make a card for my niece to wish her well in school this year. I thought this image by Diane’s Daydream Design would be perfect for a 7th grader.

The background needed something but I didn’t have an embossing template that I liked for this. So I got out my scor-pal and made my own design based on the plaid in the skirt. I think it turned out pretty good!

CHALLENGES:
1) August Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – Technique – Stitching
2) Sketch-N-Scrap Card Sketch #31 – use the sketch provided as inspiration
3) Creative Card Crew Challenge #68 – embossing
4) Catch the Bug Challenge – August Bingo Challenge – Bold colors, embossing, school (I think those are bold colors!)
5) A Gem of a Challenge #126 – Stitching

SUPPLIES:
Image: School Days KD Kit @ Diane’s Daydream Designs
Cardstock: Bazzill (Candy Apple, Classic Yellowgreen, white)
