Doggie Father's Day Card

Good morning friends

It's Masculine Card Monday here on my blog and I have a Father's Day card to share today. I have several sheets of cute dog stickers in my stash so decided to use one of the dogs for a cute Father's Day card.


Seriously, how cute is that sticker? I just added some shading under him and added him to die cut circles.


The words inside were done on the computer and I added a large die cut bone as an embellishment.



Supplies:
White card stock
Patterned paper - Echo Park
Dog sticker - Paper House
Black card stock
Stitched Circles - My Favorite Things
Computer printer
Dog bone - Paper Smooches

Card size - 5" square

Green Joyful Tidings Holiday Tags

Good morning friends

Today's share is another set of holiday tags made with that open tag die by Hero Arts. The tags were cut out of heavy green Stardream which has a lovely pearlized finish.


The words come with the die set, and I white embossed them on the front. Then I used a banner from the Blueprints #12 set on the back. This gives me a place to write the person's name on the back, and adds a bit of white decoration on either side of the words from the front.


Supplies:
Green Stardream
Ornament die and stamps - Hero Arts
MISTI
White embossing powder - Ranger
Bakers Twine
Fine Point Tweezers - Elizabeth Craft Designs
Clear Double Sided Adhesive - 1/4" width
White card stock
Blueprints #12 (Banner)

C4C338 Teacher Thank You Pull Card

Good morning friends

It's Saturday and that means a new challenge at the Crazy 4 Challenges Blog. Barbara has this week's challenge for us: the end of May signals the end of the school year in the US. Let's make a teacher thank you card this week. If you don't have a use for a teacher thank you card feel free to make a generic thank you card instead.

I used the Oval Pull Card by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs to make a thank you card for our Granddaughter's Ballet Teacher.


I had these glittered chipboard sticker in my stash and they worked perfectly with the oval shape!

Circle Pull Card for the Holidays

Good morning friends

You know how much I love the Spiral Circle Pull Card by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs. Well I was trying to get myself out of a major mojo slump and usually the Spiral Circle Pull Card is the die to to it.

I completely changed gears to help the lack of creative juices and decided to work on a holiday card. Then I had a brainstorm, and used the largest circle from Els Fitted Frames Circles to cut the SCPC into a large circle card! I'm so happy with how it turned out!


I trimmed off a sliver from the bottom so it will still stand on it's own.


 The notches still hold the card in the closed position until the sides are pulled to reveal the inside.


I think there are lots of ideas to use with this initial one! This has inspired me and it's good to feel inspired again.

Supplies:
Spiral Circle Pull Card, Pop it Ups - Karen Burniston (Elizabeth Craft Designs)
Fitted Frames Circles - Elizabeth Craft Designs
Patterned paper - Basic Grey
Red card stock
Deer stamp and die - Tim Holtz
White card stock
Words inside - Verve
Glitter Dots - Elizabeth Craft Designs

Thinking of You Card Duo

Good morning friends

I'd bet if you stacked my patterned paper the pile would be taller than me. Twice. So I try to pick away at using some of it up instead of always just adding to the collection. I do pretty good until I find a great deal and then I come home with 6 new 12 x 12 paper stacks like I did in Arizona this Spring. I'm weak and I love patterned paper and I love a deal on patterned paper.

These two sheets from my stash were purchased to use together and made SEVEN cards! These are the first two I'm sharing, but they were the last two I made as I wanted to use it up. The paper has a pretty metallic sheen.


I added some copper lines with a gel pen, on either side of the decorative panel ...


... and the same pen to write Thinking of you inside.



So my patterned paper stack is now fully two sheets less and I have no leftover bits to try to work into another card. Win Win.

Supplies:
Patterned paper - American Crafts
White textured A2 cards - DCWV
Stitched Circles - My Favorite Things
Stickers - K & Co
Metallic Pen - Sakura

Card size - both A2

Floral Card Set

Good morning friends

Earlier this Spring I bought a holiday gift tag die that I just love. I decided to splurge on their 'every day' tag as well (Hero Arts) and used it here on a set of cards I'm packaging up as a little gift.


Two of the cards are birthday cards ...



These next two cards don't use the gift tag die, but a floral stamp set that hopped in my shopping cart when I was buying the gift tag die,  :-)  also by Hero Arts. You stamp each portion in a separate colour and end up with this lovely bouquet!




The final two cards in the set are Get Well Soon cards.




Supplies:
Patterned paper - American Crafts
White card stock
Blueprints #12 - My Favorite Things
White linen A2 cards - DCWV
MISTI - My Sweet Petunia
Stitched Circles - My Favorite Things
Words on circles - Just Rite
Words on banners - Stampin' Up
