Father's Day Shirt Card

These are not very good photos because I took them with my cell phone. I made this shirt card for my dad for Father's Day. I found a template, cut it, scored it and folded it to create the shirt. I added green cardstock to the inside, along with some letter stickers for my message. I cut out the collar and pocket from yellow cardstock and drew the stitches. I added the green buttons to the outside and voila! Oh, and since my dad only wears shirts with pockets so he can stash his smokes, I printed and cut out a teeny-beeny pack of his favorite brand, and stuck it in the pocket.

Genie Lamp Wishes Card

For this week's Bitten By The Bug2 Challenge, we had to use the Genie Lamp. I made a card from maroon cardstock. I cut a piece of patterned paper for the background and distressed the edges. I added rhinestones to opposite corners. I cut the building silhouette from the same maroon cardstock and embossed it. I added rhinestones in various colors to the peaks. I cut the genie lamp from glitter cardstock, inked the edges, attached it with foam dots and added a rhinestone design. I stamped "best wishes" over the swirl, and stapled ribbon to the top corner. Please visit BBTB2 for the other designer's projects!

Deer Friend Card

I made this card for a friend's birthday recently. I got some new K&Co paper and I just loved the patterned papers. I rubber stamped the deer and the sentiment. I also created the poofy paper flower from old dictionary paper. Don't worry no dictionaries were harmed in the making of this card!

Happy Birthday Cake Cards

We celebrated birthdays for the summer semester at work this past week. I made seven of these birthday cake cards. I wanted to make a group of cards that were the same style, but various designs. I cut all the cards from white cardstock, which I then embossed with a variety of designs. I also used various colors of cardstock for the frosting and candles. Inside I cut out the phrase "happy birthday." I like how they turned out. I think the embossing looks like frosting.

Birthday Card for Dad

This is the card I made for my dad's birthday. I started with a blue cardstock card, added map patterned paper, a punched border from brown cardstock, and two layered circles of blue cardstock and blue patterned paper. I cut out the car image from a vintage patterned paper. I glittered the letter stickers and stamped the sentiment. I folded the ribbon and stapled it in place. Finally I added glittered dots to some of the cardstock pieces.

BBTB2 & Sweet N Sassy Digi Stamps

Wow! I can't believe how fast the weekend goes by! It was a really nice relaxing one for me and my hub. We went in the pool, barbecued, watched movies, racing (for him), scrapbooking (for me). Here is my latest design for the BBTB2 team. We got digital stamps to use with the sunshine cut from Doodlecharms. The digi stamps are from Sweet N Sassy. Such cute images! I flipped the image of the mushroom and caterpillar, colored them with markers, cut them out and backed them with black Bazzill bling paper. I notched the corners of the mushroom background paper and threaded bakers twine around them. I cut out the heart and love word from Paper Pups and layered the heart around the Love at First Sight caterpillars. I glittered the love word and some of the layered paper flowers. Please check out the other designer's take on the challenge at BBTB2! Have a great week!

Sarah Kay Thinking of You

I used this handcolored Sarah Kay image to make this Thinking of You card. Layered the image on various flower cardstocks and a pink card base. Also layered some paper flowers and a painted brad. I cut out "thinking of you" in brown cardstock and glittered. I also used some staples in the corners and some ric rac ribbon.

Here for you card

I made this card recently for a friend. Inside it reads "For you." She enjoys quilting, and the background paper kind of reminded me of a quilt. I border punched a brown strip and added it to the top. A ribbon beneath the chipboard letters and flower. I colored the chipboard letters with a brown permanent marker. I inked the flower with brown ink and added twisted green tissue paper for leaves. The owl is cut out from patterned paper, and I think he is really cute, but I do love owls.
