52 Christmas Card Challenge – 52CCT13-19 – April 6th – Sketch

This week we are looking for Christmas card based on a sketch by 52CCTC Design Team member EK. To make my card I started with using one of my sunshine burst dies. Once I paper pieced it together, I cut it on the diagonal. I layered it on matching patterned paper and added a large 2.5 inch circle cut with a round punch. The sentiment is from Technique Tuesdays. I added The manger image is a rubber stamp from Hambo called, “Manger”. I coloured the image with Copics.

Spring is Coming!

I am still working on making my cards (130) for the residents of the Belmont Nursing Home. I like to try to make a different design for each person, so Sketch challenges really help me with my card making. Today I made 5 different cards specific for five different card challenges.

Cardz for Guyz – Challenge #46 Food and/Drink

This week’s challenge at Cardz for Guyz is Food and Drink. I thought the Birdbrain Brew was a perfect choice!. I coloured the stamp with Copic markers, layered it, used an embossed background, some twine, glossy accents on the beer foam and bird eyes, and add the Happy Birthday Seal Stamp by Technique Tuesday.



UPDATE: My cards was selected as one of the Top Three at Cardz for Guyz


Hats off to You!

The Belmont Nursing Home is having a special “Development Day” for the staff, and I was asked to make 25 thank you cards that would hold a double sized gift card. The theme is HATS. I have a great digi stamp by Hambo called Silly Birds in Hats. They were coloured with Copics. I used a circled embossing folder for the background, and the circle Thank You stamp by Technique Tuesdays. On the inside of the card, I developed a holder for a gift card and used a computer generated sentiment. The hats are royalty free Corel Draw clipart.
