I’m back with one of my own cards and a guest cardmaker who sends cards to me for Send A Smile 4 Kids🙂 My card is going to be entered into the challenge over at Merry Monday #170 🙂 I think I’m even early this time because it’s a two week challenge for Sept. 🙂 This challenge is to use Holly on your card.
For my card, I used a beautiful image from Fred She Said called, Poinsettia & Holly Pre-Coloured Set. It comes with red flowers or white, and a number of different versions:) I used Stampin’ Up! products to finish off my card. Real Red cardstock for my base, Hand-Penned Holidays (retired) stamp set, Dazzling Details on the flower centers, and Crystal Effects on the berries to give it some depth and shine:) I finished my card with the gold embossed sentiment. Yes, I still use a Stamp-a-ma-jig;)
Here’s a closer look, the flower centers are sparlky, it’s hard to tell about the berries, but it’s easy to see in hand:) This card will be going into a box for SAS4Kids because we try to send enough cards at Christmas for the kids to give cards to their parents or caregivers:)
Now for my guest I have Janelle Klapperich:) I’ve shown cards by Janelle before, she has great cards with lots of different designs:) Today I have some misc. cards and some Halloween.
Aren’t these cute?! I know, I say that all the time, but I just love kids cards! 🙂 I’m sure these are made with a cutting machine, but I don’t know which one, maybe Janelle will let us know:)
I love all the Fall colors and papers! Janelle has great matching skills! 🙂
Another great example of changing it a little to make it different! 🙂 Look at that awesome spider web on the right card, that’s a new Stampin’ Up! product from the Holiday catalog! 🙂 You can see it on the right sidebar near the top:)
Thank you Janelle for making all these wonderful cards for our kids! 🙂 I will be entering one of Janelle’s cards into the challenge over at Send A Smile 4 Kids Challenge Blog:) Until Sat. it’s Anything Goes, then it will be Cute Fall/Halloween 4 Kids, come by and add your card!
