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).

I would like to participate in the following challenges:

The Cutie Pie Challenge – Think Pink
Seize the Birthday – Anything Goes

Thanks for stopping by.

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!

Stamps of Life Birthday

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.

I would like to link up this card to the SAS4KIDS Challenge (Clean and Simple) and the Die Cuttin Divas Challenge (birthday).

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day.

Fin-tastic

I am getting into Fall, Halloween and Thanksgiving mode right now because of my involvement with Send A Smile 4 Kids  (I am a shipper); however, some of my family (grandchildren in tow) have just left for the Outer Banks (hope Hurricane Gert does not affect them) for a week of beach and fun so I couldn’t help but make this Encouragement Card for SAS4KIDS.

Stamps of Life stamps/dies were used (check out their Die Hard Club) and I believe I got the fishy paper from AC Moore and the embossing folder used was Darice “Dot Point”. I find looking for challenges that meet my card idea overwhelming! Therefore, I am just posting this because I love to make kids smile! May God lead you to my blog.

Be Blessed!

Thanks for stopping by.

Ladybugs

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.

Entering card in the following challenges:

Gate Fold Card

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 used the Stamps of Life Donut2stamp along with the dies. This card will be going to SAS4KIDS.

Have a great weekend.

Stamps of Life “Roar”

Today’s card I used Stamps of Life stamps and dies. I am a member of the Die Hard Club and there are several stamps that I haven’t opened yet and broke them out yesterday.

This was a very quick card — I heat embossed the lions in gold (in real life they are nice and shiny).

This card will be going to St. Christopher’s Hospital Philadelphia for the SAS4KIDS program. I would like to promote and enter this card into the following challenges:

SAS4KIDS
Crafting By Design
Crafty Animals

All three challenges are “ANYTHING GOES”

Thanks for stopping by and see you tomorrow with another Stamps of Life card.

Stamps of Life Donut

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.

This card will be going to Send A Smile 4 Kids (current challenge is anything goes).

Thanks for stopping by.
