Roses Thinking of You Card Duo

Good morning friends

My Mom had asked for some Thinking of You cards, so I came up with these two. I like the look of cutting the shadow layer from the card front and layering the word layer inside the card. Then it's visible from the front AND when you open the card.

I had some of this glossy roses print paper leftover so used it along with some red card stock.

For the second card, I wanted to use the shadow layer cut from the first card so cut a second 'thinking of you' from red card stock and adhered it to the shadow layer then to the stitched panel. There was enough of the roses patterned paper to die cut a cup from the Cup Pop Stand (Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs). I cut a second cup from white fun foam (because that is what I had) and went around the edges with a red Sharpie marker. I like the 'shadow' effect it gave the cup. A few 'splashes' from Joset's Ice Cream Cone and my card was finished.

C4C 346 - Picnic Connection

Good morning friends  check fonts

It's Saturday and that means a new challenge at the Crazy 4 Challenges Blog.  Our hostess for July is Joanne Grzelak and the Guest Designer is Alexis Crossland-Smith Scrappin’ Sistah
Here is Joanne's challenge this week:  July is National Hot Dog Month, probably due to the number of picnics that occur at this time of year. Let’s have a picnic ‘connection’ on our cards this week.

I have had these stickers in my stash for a couple of years so this challenge was the perfect time to use them The gems fell off the stickers where the BBQ controls would be ... so I added some glitter dots instead. 

The card base is the Hanging Charm Pull Tab by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs. It folds completely flat for mailing ...

... and when you pull the tab the BBQ stands up for display and reveals the stamped greeting.

Usually I make cards for specific people, but I didn't have anyone in mind when I made this card. So the back of the card was left blank and that way I can add what I want when I go to send the card.

Check out the C4C blog to see how the Crazies have been inspired by the challenge. We'd sure love to see your take on it, so be sure to stop by the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and link up your creations. If you are uploading to an online gallery, please use the keyword C4C345.

Father's Day Oval Pull Card

Good morning friends

It's Flip-It Friday here on my blog, and I have a Z-Fold Father's Day card to share today using the Oval Pull Card by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs.

I had just received my Stampin' Up order and wanted to use this cool airplane stamp so this is what I came up with.

The Oval Pull Card comes with optional Slot and Slider dies and I chose to use them here to animate the plane. I added some pen lines on the card, including the little heart trail on the slider arm. There is a similar stamp in the set, but I wanted to doodle this one.

As you pull the sides of the card, the notch releases and you get a glimpse of the inside and how the Slot & Slider work.

Today's share is the birthday card I made for my parents to give our Daughter In Law for her birthday. I had so much fun making this card - the stamps in the set just crack me up.

The card base is the Bigz Circle Flip-It, with an extended left edge.

I also added some doodles and a cheery stamp inside.

She is a Vet Technician, and loves animals. This card is going to make her laugh for sure.

Moose Hello Card

Good morning friends

Today's share is a quick card that is on it's way to Sri Lanka, to a little boy we sponsor through World Vision. We had been driving home from the Farmers Market and there was a moose in a field off the highway so I was inspired to use this Moose stamp. It was one of my purchases from the Mesa Rubber Stamp Show (Stamps by Judith) - honestly, I could buy every one of her animal stamps. LOVE them.

The 'hello' was die cut from a metallic card stock, and I added a glaze pen on the eyes and nostrils. It's showing up in the photo as a glitter, but it is a clear raised finish.

I wrote a note inside, and thought he might like one of my completed Zentangle tiles so that went in as well.

Ethan's Robot Birthday Card

Good morning friends

Today's share is the birthday card I made for my parents to give our Grandson Ethan for his birthday this month.

This large robot sticker was in the same package as the patterned paper, so I attached it to white card stock then fussy cut it out. The robot is attached to the front of the card with an Action Wobble.

I used more stickers for the inside so it would all coordinate, as well as stamping.
