Well I thought it was time to get started on my Father's Day Cards. I am using the cards that I had made from the OWH sketches. I just love that I can stamp or print my sentiment and add an embellishment and the card is complete.
Simple right but it is complete and ready to be mailed off.
This will be for the challenge over at Scraps of Color Sistah/Brotha Blogger Week 22 ~ Hats off to the Grad~ I have found myself fallen behind but hopefully I can keep the mojo going and stick with the challenges.
I made the cards with my Cameo and papers that I had in my stash. I also used the Cameo to write with the sketch pens to add Congratulations on the frames.
This first card is for my scrappy friend Shanta her son Q
This card is for my cousin Adrein who is off to my Alma Marta University of Central State.
I also made personalized towels for the both of them
I purchase my towels from Target I think the quality is great and a good price. I don't wash my towels when I give them away I let the receiver know that once they wash it the plastic will go away (you can see the plastic in the name)
The tread on Adrein is a multi color one and I just love it. I sewed on the zebra ribbon and you know me I don't have patience for a straight seem but she is family
Today is my sister Tracey and my brother in law Kevin's Birthday. I know I am late posting but that is my life right now Late Late and Late.
This card is one of the card's that I made using the OWH sketches on that 6x6 pack I worked on. I just used my silhouette to cute the bee and to sketch out the sentiment for the frame that was also cut on the Cameo....I really like the fact that all I have to do is cut out an image and the card is complete so next month I plan on doing better on my cards.
Here are a few more cards that I started on the other night while once again using the sketches from OWH. I don't have the 6x6 pad that I started taking apart. I kept the sentiment blank so when it is time that I need a card it is in my box just waiting on a die cut or sentiment. Maybe this way I will be able to get cards off on time.
I tried to do two of each card only a few sheets left of this 6x6 pad since it was one that I had used before.
In honor of Memorial Day....I have a picture of my sister Tracey when she was in the guards many yrs ago
That funny look on her face but the stories she use to tell me of her counter parts so I am sure it was funny
Today is my husband's son Gail Jr birthday. I have used Operation Write Home 6x6 Extravagance and ran with it. I have made so many cards with this 6x6 pack and today I will finish it up but today I will only share this card for JR's birthday.
I will have hubby to hand write the message on the inside of the card.
Happy Birthday JR we love you and wish you plenty more birthdays to come.
Good evening, my girlfriend Danita had told me about this stamp she seen at her Circle Mania. Well I really didn't need an excuse to sign up with Stampin up....I am my best customer since I think I need everything. Well I got my order in and I watched Dawn's video over the bleach emboss technique. Well I didn't have a bleach gel pen so I tried the liquid bleach. I didn't get the effect she did but I really like it and next time I go to Wally I will pick up a bleach pen so look out for another card.
I used Burgundy card-stock from Stampin up I used the little bling from Close to My Heart and the stamp is from K Andrews when she had her big sale last yr.
The inside stamp is from Stampin up Favorite Thoughts also stamped in Burgundy
Well time for me to cut this yard...have a bless evening
I saw this simple sketch from Friday Frenzy and I wanted to use it and use it for my stash of cards. This layout is so simple to have complete and when a birthday, anniversary or whatever comes up you just add a diecut and stamp and your card is ready to be mailed off.
Well down to the wire and it is time to finish up with Mother's Day Cards. Thank goodness for this free file in the CCR. I really like how the card came out. Just wish I would have found this one earlier because all of my cards would have been like this one. I used vellum behind the card. I also stamped on the vellum (note to self wait next time before it is dry to add to the card, stop being in such a big rush lol)
I used a Spellbinders nestabilities Labels and want to scrap bling to frame it. The stamp is a hero arts stamp as well.
Today is the last day for Teacher's Appreciation. For us it was snack day and my grandson teacher Mrs. Walter's favorite snacks is M&M w/ peanuts, pretzels, Zero Coke, kisses. So I made a box to put some kisses in and remember her favorite color is green so I used some green colored K & Company paper from Wild Saffron and a Recollection flower and want to scrap bling.
I hope she likes it. I used my Cameo for the purse box file.
My grandson asked for 7 cards for other teachers today. I went on pinterest to get an idea for hopefully a quick card. I found a picture from Emmy so I used CCR with my Expression and the Community cartridge to come up with this pencil card that Kendrian loved.
Kendrian helped out with the stamping. The Read & Learn I used my Cameo sketch pens to get that since I don't have teacher stamps. Kendrian also signed each card.
Well time to get to work and try not to wait until the last minute tonight to come up with day 4.
Today is Flower Day....My grandson Teacher favorite color is green so we made her a card tonight with a lot of green in it and yes he helped so if you see some EXTRA distressing ink which is fine with me because he helped. I used prima Madeline paper and Michael's flowers and bling. I used spellbinders spiral blossom one for the big flower.
Well I manage to get a card complete for my grandson's Teacher Mrs. Walters. My hat is off to all Teacher's for what they do. I can't do it and I just applaud each and every Teacher out there.
I used Create a Critter 2 for the apple and worm. I used My Mind's Eye School Daze for the pattern paper and I thought it was the right fit for this card. I went in my stash again and found a dollar stamp for No 1 Teacher which I need to add that to my wish list a teacher stamp for next time. I found a poem on the internet and here is my card I hope she likes it.
Over at SOC challenge day 2 was a layout. I pulled out another Zoo picture of my grandson's class. I love the fact today that I have pulled out of my stash and used some things. I used my distress it all tool to get the look on the picture. I went and pulled out DCWV Safari Kids stack for the big mat back ground and the recollections die cut Zoo emblishments. I even pulled out those thickers that I had to have that is taken up space in my room
