Friday Mashup #119 with cards for Send A Smile 4 Kids

OMGoodness, three hours of quiet tonight!!:)  Kids all went to bed early and I started making cards! 🙂  I made two today and they will both be going into the box for Send A Smile 4 Kids! 🙂  I’ve already entered their challenge, they run for two weeks, so you have plenty of time to enter for a chance to win some nice digital prizes:)  This time the theme is Christmas in July.

So today’s cards are not Christmas, but I think they’re pretty cute.  If you check out the Send A Smile 4 Kids challenge, I was the first to enter! 🙂  I will be entering these two cards in the challenge over at the Friday Mashup #119.

Here’s your Mashup Challenge:
  1. Create a project using the “Sketch”.
  2. Create a project with a “Favorite New Stamp Set”.
  3. Or Mash it Up and create a project “using the Sketch with your Favorite NEW Stamp Set”.

Here is their sketch for this week:

fm119Here are my cards, I used the sketch and my favorite NEW digital stamps:

First off, the “glitter” paper is actually digital “glitter” paper from Sassy Designs.  I’ve never tried digital glitter paper before, because I thought it would look too fake.  Of course it’s not like real glitter paper, but it looks kinda cool, AND it suited my purpose for these two cards;)  I cut the arrows out of the paper, I wouldn’t be able to do that if it was thick glitter paper.  Here is what the first step looks like:

Half-fold Card2The first step is the front after cutting.  Here is a photo of the back and the template I used to make my arrows.  The template is from POP-UPs Etc.  On the lower left there is a link for FOLD-em templates, I used #2 here.  And here is what I did:

Half-fold Card3I used my template and cut my arrows with my special knife I bought with the original template Lace’  (Lay-say).  These are no longer sold, so I am directing you to the site where I know similar template are sold:)  I cut them out on the red side and then turned my paper over and folded part of the arrows in. Then I cut them off for the effect I wanted.  You would usually fold them out to the front and fold them under the little flaps.  Because I’m using digital paper, it’s pretty thin.  I just taped the brick road under it to show through.

The glitter paper came from Sassy Designs, Inc. Here is some info on them, they are having a great sale with digital paper SETS for only 25 cents!!!  Yes, really!  I don’t remember how I even found them, but check it out! 🙂

“The 12 Days of Christmas in July Sale is ENDING THIS FRIDAY! The sale is
scheduled to end promptly at 11:59pm EDT on Friday, July 26, 2013. (PLEASE
NOTE THE TIME ZONE difference: Sale end time of 11:59pm EDT is 8:59pm PDT,

Okay, now that brings me to my images.  These images are  from Doodle Pantry in a set called OZ.   I got the entire set and will be making more cards for Send A Smile 4 Kids.  The set comes with images, papers, and sentiments! 🙂  I, of course, used pre-colored digital images, but they have lots of un-colored images.  There are links on the left side of the page:)

OMGoodness, it’s after 2:30am here!  I have to go to bed, the little ones have no sympathy for my staying up too late! LOL

If you have any questions, feel free to ask! 🙂

Thanks for coming by today!  I hope I haven’t overloaded you with info:)  See you soon:)

    So glad you joined us at The Friday Mashup!

  3. I love those fold ’em templates… hadn’t thought of that one! Perfect for your yellow brick road (also very clever!). Thanks for joining the Friday Mashup this week.
