Monochromatic, Sketch and Cupcake

Hope everyone enjoyed their family and friends yesterday.

Today I created a card using three different challenge themes. First I chose the sketch at Little Red Wagon – then I chose to go monochromatic using Seize the Birthday theme and finally I chose to use a cupcake as the focal point which is the challenge over at Cardz 4 Galz. Here is my card.

The cupcake and cherry on top are from Stamps by Judith and Heather, the card base is from GinaK, ribbon from Stamps of Life, sentiment from MFT, and the embellishments are dazzle stickers. I also used Wink of Stella on the cherry.

This card will be going to SAS4KIDS (I am a shipper).

Thanks for stopping by.

Tuesday Throwdown Shaker Card

The challenge this week over at Tuesday Throwdown is to make a shaker card. So for me this is a real challenge. I haven’t made many shaker cards because I dislike all those little bits you put into the shaker (much the same reason that I don’t care for glitter). So here is my attempt for this week’s challenge:

I somewhat cased this card from somewhere in cyber land. The stamps and sentiment are from Verve Stamps and everything else is from my stash.

This card will be going to Send A Smile 4 Kids (I am a shipper).

Owls

Our street was a dead end when we moved into our home 40 years ago. There were five houses on our street and at the end was a wooded area. At night we would hear an owl and it was so soothing when you turned over in bed in the middle of the night. We never got to see him but we certainly heard him. Then twelve years ago, new construction came in and a 55+ community took down our precious woods, and our friendly owl left.

The challenge over at Little Red Wagon this week is Owl about me. Here is my card:

All products used are from Gina K Designs (Friends til the end stamp set) and the owl was colored with copics.

In addition to Little Red Wagon, I would also like to participate in the following challenges:

Crafting By Designs – Anything Goes

Red Red and More Red

This card was inspired by the challenge over at Little Red Wagon – What’s Red All Over (I will be participating in this challenge).

The digital image and sentiment are from Digi Stamp Boutique, papers are from my stash, heart edge punch is from Martha Stewart. The card will be going to Send A Smile 4 Kids (I am a shipper).

I would also like to participate in Dragonfly Dreams (fully loaded).

Christmas Card #1

This is my first Christmas Card for this year (I make 4 of each card, 3 go to SAS4KIDS and the other for my box of cards). This is a clean and simple card and took about 30 minutes to make all 4.

The stamp set I used is from Verve and the snow banks were created using MFT dies. Copic markers were used on the stamps as well as the tops of the snowbanks to make them stand out.

Cute Birthday Dog

I created this Birthday Card for SAS4KIDS a few weeks ago and I liked how cute it turned out and thought it would be great for one of the younger patients at the hospitals I ship to.

The cute little dog and gem are from Stamps of Life, the greeting is an outline sticker, the Cardstock is from MFT and the paper is from Stampin’ Up (very old).

Welcome Little Lady

I am a shipper for Send A Smile 4 Kids. I ship to three hospitals at the present time. One of the hospitals need Baby Cards for those little ones who are born too early or with problems. I make most of the baby cards for the NICU. So when this week’s challenge over at Tuesday Throwdown was “Bundle of Joy” it was right up my alley. Here is my card:

I used Echo Park Designer Stamp and Die set called Little One, the patterned papers I purchased at  AC Moore, and I embossed the sentiment using white detail embossing powder.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day.

Birthday Balloons

I recently purchased a Mama Elephant stamp and die set at Joann’s. As many of you know I am a shipper and card maker for Send A Smile 4 Kids, so whenever I see cute stamps for kids (especially if they are on sale) I just have to purchase them. Here is the very simple Birthday Card I made for one of the kids.

This set is called Up We Go, I stamped the images directly on the front of the card and colored with copics (if you use GinaK heavy base weight cardstock the copics do not bleed through to the other side). I added the heart from another stamp set.

I would like to promote and enter this card into the following challenges:
Cards In Envy – Easy as 1,2,3
Use Your Stuff – Challenge 280 Pets
Seize the Birthday – Balloons
Word Art Wednesday – Anything Goes

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Tuesday!
