2nd batch of Easter Cards

Well goodness! I forgot to keep posting cards! Before I get to Mother’s Day cards I better post the rest of Easter 2020.

Easter Embossed Cross

I made this card for a couple customers that wanted a Christian themed Easter Card.

Coloring Eggs - outside

Coloring Eggs - inside

As I was working on Easter Cards I saw this photo journaling card and got to thinking about how I could turn into a Easter Card. I came up with the ideal to add the dots and the rest of the sentiment. I had my friend make it sound good and this was the finished product. I came up with this ideal because I like the fun part of Easter but also remember that Jesus is the reason for Easter. I sent this to my new adopted Niece and Nephews and they loved it!

April Inspirational Card Challenge – Inspirational Photo – I went with the Easter theme and the eggs.

Used Create with Connie & Mary Sketch #602 for my inspiration.

SUPPLIES:
Cardstock: Bazzill (Blue Oasis)
Patterned Paper and Journaling Photo Card: Doodlebug (Bunnyville)
Accents/Tools: pop dots, Queen & Co pink dots

Easter Chic on Eggs

One of the ladies wanted a card for her dad that is into gardening and native Nebraska flowers. So I learned that the daisy is a native Nebraska flower! So I added the flowers to the journaling photo card and then used Sketch #594 at Cards with Connie & Mary (I flipped it).

I made two cards so I decided to give one to my friend Dale.

April Inspirational Card Challenge – Product – patterned paper.

SUPPLIES:
Cardstock: Bazzill (Blue Oasis, American Poppy, Intense Kiwi)
Patterned Paper and photo card: Doodlebug (Bunnyville)
Accents/Tools: Doodlebug Sprinkles (spring), SVG daisy cut file

Happy Easter Egg

So I make cards for a guy at work and then I also make cards for his mother. I made Easter cards for the mother to give to her friends and son (watercolor paper cross card). Then I made this card for the son to give to his mother (parents). She wrote me today and said she loved it! The mom likes flowers so when I saw the journaling photo card I knew to pair it with this bright happy flower paper! I cut down the journaling card and put the dotted frame around it. I used Create with Connie & Mary Sketch #598 as my inspiration. I used a flower punch to add to the strip below the egg. Because some of the journaling photo cards are big I bought 6 1/4 x 6 1/4 envelopes so this card is 6 x 6. It’s big but not too big.

I made 2 of these and sent one of these to my Aunt Barb! Happy Mail!!

He is Risen - all three

I needed a card for a lady to give her son. So he got the green/yellow one since that was more manly. I used an older image from Clearly Digi Stamps (no longer in business). Since I’m not good with inks and watercolor I used paper that was already done for me!!

Card from Santa

1 Comment

Santa paper pieced

A lady contacted me and stated she was going to buy her kids seasons passes to Wonders of Wildlife (Bass Pro) but didn’t have any cool way to present it to the kids. She said she was disappointed that Bass Pro didn’t have any cards to do this. So she requested one from me! She wanted it to be from Santa to the kids. I came up with the ideal of Santa checking his list and finding out the family was nice so he would give them a season pass. So I sent the ideal to my girlfriend who is amazing with coming up with sentiments.

Santa Bass Pro - inside
On the inside I printed off a photo of W.O.W. and made it a pocket so the season pass would go on a tag that could be pulled out.

Santa Bass Pro

 

So I was telling my massage therapist about this card and he said oh make me one I want to take it my friend that works at Bass Pro. So who know maybe Bass Pro will “copy” my ideal!

While I was looking for images on the internet I came across this digital stamp/svg file at Scarlett Rose Designs and thought it would be perfect for the envelope to put the card in. I printed their names on the front.

Rockin around the Christmas Tree

Rockin Around Christmas Tree

I had a request for a guitar themed Christmas card. I found this SVG/digital stamp file. The original has the “as” partial on the guitar. Any way the way the guitar was in my cutting program there were way to many little pieces. So I asked my husband to separate guitar so I could just print it as one piece and add it to the cut out letters. Since all those letters were cut on the cricut I only made one card. If I can figure out how to do differently I make more!

Tropical Birthday

Palm Tree Beach Birthday

So I made a card similar to this one last year (see below) …but forgot to post it! But a lady requested a palm tree/beach card for her nephew. This version is different because I used a new sun die I recently got (instead of part of a circle) and made the sand bigger on this one. I made the letters the same color as the sand in hopes it looks like it was drawn in the sand!

CHALLENGES:
1) April Inspirational Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – theme – weather. Not sure if this is what Karen had in mind but it is SUNNY WEATHER on this card! (so wish I was there!)

SUPPLIES:

Hoppy Easter

When I was trying to come up with a card to make at the retirement home I started with these two. The bottom one I just couldn’t get…I think this is the 5th version of it and I finally like it!  The Easter Bonnet chick I think will say “Happy Easter to my favorite chick”. I really liked it a couple nights ago when I made it but now not so sure. So who knows there might be another version soon!
