Thank You Card


Hi There,

Like to share a Thank You card I made for my neighbour for coming to my rescue the other day. Needed to go in for some minor day surgery and my husband just started a new job and therefore couldn’t take me. My neighbour was so good, she took me to the hospital and stayed the whole time with me. 7 hours in total if you include the drive time. I’ll be eternally grateful. It’s so nice to have great neighbours that you can depend on.

Here is the shaker card that I made for her.

Here is the little girl before I put her

behind the shaker for a closer look.

This is the inside of the card.

Hi There,

Created this card for the Craftin Desert Divas June Anything Project.

Sweet Pea - Get well soon - in 300 dpi

For this project, I used the stamps from Garden Cuties and the sentiment on the inside from Craftin Desert Diva’s Tissue Time.

All stamping was done with Memento Tuxedo black ink.

I cut out the frame for the inside of the card using Craftin Desert Divas Tag Essential Dies and my Cuttlebug.

Used my Cricut Explore to cut out the Pea pod design from sweetpeajoanneb, which was a free .svg file.

The background papers are from Ki-Doilies Paper Pad by Hamtpon Art.

Coloured in the stamps with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers and then used Gamsol and PrismaColor Premier coloured pencils to do the highlights.

Hope you like it!

For the inside, I cut out the snail from Cricut Cartridge Birthday Bash. Then I stamped the face with Peachy Keen Stamp Set – PK490 – Everyday Character Face Assortment. I added in some extra eyelashes and used my White Gel pen on the eye. Used chalk for cheeks, outline of snail and for shadow below snail. For the shell, I used some paper that I made using the Tim Holz Ranger Alcohol Inks.

Mother’s Day Card 2015


Hi There,

Sharing a card I made for my mom this year using Craftin Desert Divas Rain or Shine stamps and Sentiments.

I used my watercolour pencils to do the background. Then I used my Cricut Explore to cut out all of the hearts, mom and red puddle.

The red puddle is supposed to represent a puddle of love. I thought the hearts went with the sentiment for raining down love.

Here’s a closer look of the little girl. I coloured her in with my Prismacolor Premier Pencils and then blended with Gamsol.

I used my Gelly Roll Pen 08 for the eyes.

For the blue puddle, I cut out the puddle with my Cricut Explore and then added Glossy Accents. I also paper pierced the pattern in the umbrella and added a few small hearts.

Lastly, I wrote this poem for my mom on the inside. Thought I’d share it with everyone.

I won a prize from Craftin Desert Diva’s Mother’s Day Linky Party for this card. Thank you so much!

I decided to make this an accordian card using the dies from Elizabeth Craft  – Accordian Circle Card 769 and Elizabeth Craft – Square Frame Edges 770.

Images were stamped using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. To colour I used my Copics and Spectrum Noir markers and then used Gamsol and Prisma Premier coloured pencils to create the shading.

I just love this stamp set. Don’t you?

Hi There! Thought I would share a card that I made for my aunt’s birthday.

Aunt Val BD 2015 front          Aunt Val BD 2015 inside

 

This was my first attempt at the tear bears. I used the cut files from Too Cute By Jessica – Marjorie Ann Designs using my Cricut Explore.

I won the cut file playing Bingo during the Craftin Desert Diva’s New Stamp Release Blog Hop. It was a lot of fun.

The sentiments and face on balloon are from Peachy Keen PKSC-25 January 2014.

The card was cut out with We R Memory Keepers – Quickkutz Nesting Frame 7 dies and my Cuttlebug using various colours of cardstock.

Cupcake cardstock is from Doodlebug Design Inc. 6 x 6 Paper Pad – 4202 Sugar Shoppe.

The yellow frill on the dress and had were both done with Flowersoft.

Lastly, I added in some little sprinkle gems that I had.
