Ouch! Quick Video on Grass Making!

 

I made this card a few days ago. I mentioned it when I showed the “You Got This” card- the card for the 9 year old, teammate of my youngest son in XC,  who has been diagnosed leukemia. Here’s a link to that:

You Got This

This card was fun to make, but it just didn’t seem like the right card to give to that kid.

I stamped the Back to Your Feet critters in Memento Black and colored them with Blends. I then fussy cut them.

The trees and grass are from the dies Inspiring Canopy. Here’s a short video of how I did the grass with those dies:

The background was made with Balmy Blue and Pool Party, and the Blending Brushes.

This card would be great for a kid who broke a bone! Two of my kids have had broken bones!

I made this card for a friend of mine. I met her this school year, her son plays football with my youngest son. She is awesome! She takes the kids to places all the time- Scream-a-Geddon, Sunwest Park for wake boarding and knee boarding, birthday parties, etc.! If you’re not in the Tampa area- look up those things! We have some awesome things to do around here!

I made this card pretty fast. Using the Blossoms in Bloom stamp set, I used Sponge Daubers to ink it up using Pool Party, Coastal Cabana, and Bermuda Bay. I stamped it on Basic White cardstock.

I die cut the matching dies with the AMAZING Silver Foil Specialty Paper (it’s on page 23 in the mini catalog). I fussy cut the leaves off. Before I did this, I actually die cut the die with Basic White cardstock and put Versamark all over it and then added silver embossing powder. It looked great, but I messed up the die cut unintentionally later. I kept that one and used it on another card- I’ll show you that in a few days.

For the sentiment, I used the stamp set Biggest Wishes. I stamped with Versamark, embossed with silver embossing powder and then die cut it with one of the Stitched So Sweetly dies.

Easy card!

Whimsy Trees with the Negative Picture This Dies!

 

After I made the card I showed you yesterday, I kept the rectangles and decided to make a totally different card.

I love to see Holiday cards in bright pink and other bright colors. This was fun to make!

And, hey! More snow!

Peaceful Cabin & Picture This Dies!

I bought the Picture This dies many months ago and have never used it. I was looking at the Peaceful Place Suite (pages 36-38 in Mini Catalog) and thought of an idea. Yep, I made a card with a sun and the next day I made one with a snow look. I’m not a huge fan of snow, but it is very pretty! We Floridians don’t get snow! (Sometimes some of us do once in while).

I’m  not sure why the trees would be in those rectangles, but I really liked the way it came out!

When you die cut the Picture This dies, keep the rectangles or circles that it cuts out! I’ll show you a card I made with those tomorrow!

Let me know if you have any questions!

I saw the card in the annual catalog on page 51 and I wanted to make my own! I made this one for my dad for Father’s Day.

It was fun to make, changing a few things from the original. Here’s a video of me making it!

Hi There from a Sunflower!

 

Man, that Gilded Leafing is ah-mazing. I will have a video using it hopefully by tomorrow.

The Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set and matching dies is one of my favorites. I’ve used it for so many cards- happy ones and sympathy ones, too.
