Recycled Card?

22 Jun

It feels like it’s been a while since I made a card and when a rash of kids birthdays came and gone this month of June, they also wiped me out of kid-friendly birthday cards (i.e. no buttons/glitter/blings/frills they can swallow, cute kiddy pictures and bright eye-catching colors).

So here is a card I made to replenish my stash.

This entire card was made using paper scraps I had left over from other projects – Kraft card stock, American Craft ribbon and I don’t remember where that stripped patterned paper is from. Sentiment and Changito the Monkey is from Stampendous. Changito, his cake and the blue background are colored/airbrushed using Copic markers – B00, E11, E13, E18, E71, Y02, Y08, R29. YR07).

2 more kids parties to go – hopefully that will be the last of the summer season.

Summer is here …

3 Jun

At least I hope it’s here to stay for a while, given the crazy weather we have been getting in MN.

Over at Crissy’s, she has declared summer too – a summer theme card! There are many things I love about the summers – allergy season from spring is slowing down a little; no need for coats, hats and mitten – thank goodness, when you have to run around the house to put on 2 sets of gloves before leaving the house (sometimes 3 sets when the 1st set comes off before the 2nd set goes on); grass is lush and flowers are blooming, especially the sunflowers … and here is my sunny flower card for Crissy’s challenge.

Background is stamped using Impression Obsession cover-a-card distressed diagonals. Flower image and sentiment are stamped using Stampendous Daisy Thanks Perfectly Clear stamps. The entire card was inked using Tim Holtz’s Distress Inks – Wild Honey and Vintage photo.

Enjoy the warm weather!

It’s that time again …

… Timeless Tuesday challenge at Flourishes. This time, Dee is challenging us to make or decorate a gift bag or box – what a fun and unique challenge!!

On my gift bag, I used Stampendous Jumbo Hydrangea stamp and Hero Arts Friend Definition stamps. The Friend definition background was distress and inked with Tim Holtz distress ink – walnut stain and the Hydrangea was colored using Copic markers (BV02, BV04, BV08, G28, G20, YG67). Both images was stamped using Memento Ink – Rich Cocoa. Flower centers were created using Tim Holtz Distress Stickles – Rock Candy.

The person who is getting the bag (and the gift inside) reads my blog so I’m not going to give the surprise away. I do hope you like it.
