Today’s card is for a very good friend. She started out as our favorite server and now she’s like family. She’s into all things Goth and Halloween. Therefore, a Goth birthday card. Background paper was embossed with a Happy Birthday ef and I distressed the edges with a Tim Holtz distresser. Frame is from the Silhouette, images are online clip art. The corner cupcakes are popped up. Here is a close up of the cupcakes.
Welcome. I found myself in need of two masculine Easter cards, one for our 22 year old grandson and one for our16 year old great-grandson so I made two of these.
Card base is white cs, gray layer was run through a crimper, background paper for the bunny is soft birch found online. Bunny is from an online coloring page colored with Copics, sentiment was printed on the computer, eggs are online clip art and fussy cut. Very quick and simple.
Thanks for stopping in. Comments are always welcome.
The challenge at AAA Cards is made in minutes and this definitely fills the bill. After I made the first one and realized how super duper quick it was, I decided to create a bunch more. I cut a white card panel to 5 ½ x 4 ¼. I placed the greenery from the Joyous Season Stamp Kit by Simon Says Stamp at the bottom of the MISTI. After stamping the bottom of the panel in Memento Cottage Ivy, flipped over and stamped the other end. I placed the sentiment from the same set at the other end of the MISTI and stamped it in Memento Love Letter. After stamping I cut 1/8” off all sides and attached to a red card base. If it hadn’t been for this design, I’d still be making cards.
The theme for the As You See It Challenge 239 challenge is “The color I avoid using most is ____.” Orange is just not my jam. However I was inspired by a card Sandy Allnock made a couple of months ago. It is such fun to watch her create – her cards just come to life. I won a $25.00 gift card from Sunny Studio’s release in August. One of the sets I got was Bountiful Autumn which has some nice Thanksgiving images in addition to some cute turkeys. I made this card for my husband. I was surprised at how much orange I ended up using. In addition to the carrot and pumpkin, there was the table runner – I couldn’t decide on a different color for it. Then the white background was just too stark, so I toned it down by brushing on Dried Marigold Oxide ink. I tried several card bases, but the one that worked best was Tangerine Twist by Gina K Designs. This was fun to do.
Thanks to Bonnie for sending the Desert Image, resized and printed. Brushed a very light distressed ink in the background. Used GK white card stock base, sentiment is from My Anchors Mini Kit (GK). Very simple card.
This is style #1 of my Christmas cards. Base card is GK paper, the rest is Heartfelt Creations. The card is covered with chunky glitter and really sparkles. I have 10 of these made, all a little different, but the basic concept is the pinecone which is die cut and dimensional. Fun making the poinsettias with the mold press.
