SAS4Kids challenge this time is for a CAS (Clean and Simple) card. Here is a card I recently made for another one of the many September and October birthdays coming up. I always make two because one is for me and the other goes to Send A Smile 4 Kids (I am a shipper).
Stamps of Life Die Hard Club member set for March 2017 was used. I am really enjoying products in my arsenal which I haven’t had time to play with. All products used making this card are from SOL.
Vacations are like a reset button mentally, physically and spiritually. We all need them. I am lucky enough to live an hour and a half from the beach. I love the smell of the ocean. I do not enjoy lying on the beach and I will only sit on the beach if I have a chair. But I love walking along the shoreline finding shells or going on the jetties and looking for sea life. The beach and ocean have many therapeutic qualities. Check out this article – Vitamin “Sea”: The Therapeutic & Sensory Benefits of Sun, Sand & Surf found on Get Well Maps blog.
I made this card with no recipient in mind. Words 2 Craft By Challenge this month are words about vacation.
To create the weathered board I learned it here. I stamped the image (Stamplorations) and masked it off and used pan pastels to create the sky/water; the birds are from GinaK Designs. I created the port hole using circle dies and Dazzle jewel dots. The ship’s wheel is from MFT and the sentimet is also from Stamplorations.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Here is another card I made using the Stamps of Life Donuts 2 Stamp set. My grand daughter loves pink frosted donuts. I am a shipper for Send A Smile 4 Kids and I know that the kids at the hospitals will find this a funny (punny) card.
I also used MFT die for the green polka dotted mat and the paper I had in my stash. Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed weekend.
I will be entering this card into the following challenges:
I am a shipper for SAS4KIDS and I love the Stamps of Life stamps/dies to make cards for the kids. They are all so cute. For today’s card I used the fish 2 stamp set. This card will be going to St. Christopher’s Hospital Philadelphia.
My brother’s birthday is coming up and he and his son recently took a cross country road trip. I remember when my husband and I drove to New Mexico for the Hot Air Balloon Festival ten years ago and saw all the farmland in the midwest. So I got out my very used Country Roads stamp set from GinaK Designs and made him this card:
There are about 5,000 different species of ladybugs in the world. These much loved critters are also known as lady beetles or ladybird beetles. They come in many different colors and patterns, but the most familiar in North America is the seven-spotted ladybug, with its shiny, red-and-black body. In many cultures, ladybugs are considered good luck. Today’s Card:
Ladybug stamp from GinaK; greeting and ribbon Stamps of Life; Simply Charmed Cuttlebug Embossing Folder. The card will be going to Send A Smile 4 Kids.
This is my first attempt at a Gate Fold Card and it is very basic. I know this is an old technique but it is one I have never tried. I always have a hard time with getting things straight and even. Whenever I tried these folded cards in the past they were put away in the most used tool in my work room (the trash). With the help of a scor pal I was able to get this card to fold exactly where it should. So here is my basic Gate Fold Card:
I cannot believe how long it has been since I’ve posted. Maybe because I haven’t had the time to make any cards. Well those days are over. I have my mojo back and it came when I received this month’s die hard club set called donut2stamp from Stamps of Life.
I used an ivory card base and MFT Blueprint 27 to create the window. I used a white gel pen to add the sprinkles. I am not sure where the paper is from but when I saw it in my stash I knew it went perfectly with the theme.
Shaped Cards is the current challenge over at Cardz 4 Galz. I am a shipper for Send A Smile 4 Kids and making cards for the kids is my passion. So I made this shaped card for the NICU at St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children in Philadelphia. You don’t think the birth of a baby would be a sad time but for some of these parents it is — just like Jimmy Kimmel shared the other night. So making happy colorful and joyous newborn cards for the NICU to give to these parents brings joy to my heart.
The onesie dies are no longer available but I use them alot (Top Dog Dies). The papers are from American Crafts and the cardstock is from Stamps of Life.
