I have lots of cards to show you today! 🙂 First, I would like to remind everyone to check out the Blog Candy I have for the month of May! 🙂
Next, I have a new card to enter into the challenge over at Merry Monday #159.
Need a little bit of inspiration for your Christmas cards?! You’ve come to the right place! There is still plenty of time for you to play along with Merry Monday #159! This week’s challenge is brought to you by our super talented, Debbie:
“Remember…have fun creating a Christmas card using “non-evergreen tree(s)” Have fun!
I’m assuming these are non-evergreen trees, at least I embossed them in Gold;) I used half of a stamp for the Stampin’ Up! Christmas set, The Newborn King. I love this set! 🙂 I can tell you how to get it at a discounted price! If you’re interested, just let me know:) I know it looks easy, but it actually took me almost a dozen tries to get it so I was satisfied!
First I stamped and embossed the entire stamp, which has more trees where the Glory is. I had trouble getting the embossing powder to be just right😦 Then, I decided to go a whole different way! This card actually has three different stamps from the set of 4. I tried just stamping the left side, but I kept getting residue from the right side:( You can tell I’ve never done this already;) lol Then I took one of the images I didn’t like and cut it in half to make a template. Ok, it was late and I really haven’t done this before…..really, my first time!
I stamped and embossed the left side, did the same for the right, and finally added the star. I’ll be prepared to do this again! 😉 I didn’t have any Stampin’ Up! Gold paper on hand, so I used some from Recollections. If you click on the image and make it larger, you can see the sparkle in the Gold paper:) I really like how it turned out! 🙂 Of course, this will be going into a box for Send A Smile 4 Kids:) I actually make my cards so they can be found, many years from now by archeologists, I’m sure it will last until Christmas! 😉 lol
Now be prepared to be overwhelmed by Father’s Day cards! 🙂 My guest today is Holly Blaskie, from MI:) Holly has sent cards several times and has done a wonderful job each time! I truly appreciate all the cardmakers who send cards to me for SAS4Kids!! 🙂
Two beach scenes, these are really nice, great images for June:)
I love these! The same sentiment, but totally different cards! 🙂 I’ll have to ask her about the footprints, I’m assuming it’s an embossing folder, but I’ve been wrong before;) These could either be Father’s Day or just I Love You Dad cards:)
If you have a card for a kid, check out the challenge blog sponsored by Send A Smile 4 Kids, here🙂
Thanks for coming by today! 🙂 I still have some Father’s Day cards to share, but I’ll also be adding more kids cards, so please come back and have a look! 🙂
