Now, on to some cards! πŸ™‚Β  I have two cards from one of our sponsors, Fred She Said Designs πŸ™‚Β  This link goes right to the page of this set called Christmas Poinsettia Packs: Red or Blue πŸ™‚

My Project2

This first card was made with items in the pack, except for the shiny gold medallion behind the flower.Β  The medallion is from Stampin’ Up!, it’s retired, but I had a few left over from last year.Β  It’s just an idea how you can make the pack items look a little different.Β  I also used Stampin’ Up! Real Red cardstock for my base layer πŸ™‚

aDSC00439

This is the second card I made using the Christmas Poinsettia Pack, from Fred She Said πŸ™‚Β  I’m sorry, parts of this look a little blurry to me 😦  I hope you all can see it okay πŸ™‚Β  I used just the Poinsettia from the pack and mounted the whole thing of Stampin’ Up! Real Red.Β  The black paper is from Carta Bella, Christmas Delivery paper pack #2.Β  Nope, I don’t have it sitting around, I bought it from Snap Click Supply.Β  It’s a digital paper pack, and it printed out beautifully on Canon, Matte, photo paper.

Behind the black designer paper is just some Stampin’ Up! Basic Black. For the Memory Box, Holly Vine, I used Stampin’ Up! Garden Green. I used a set by Avery Elle called Winter Woodland Wonders for the “Merry Christmas” sentiment. Lastly, I used a retired embellishment for the middle of my flower from Stampin’ Up!

The Poinsettia was so easy to cut out once it was printed, also on Canon, Matte, photo paper.Β  This card shows that you can take items you have sitting around, add a FSS Christmas Poinsettia and you have a beautiful card! πŸ™‚

Now, I will be giving away, free, to one of my commenters, one of two Stampin’ Up! Party Pandas stamp sets! πŸ™‚Β  All you have to do is make a comment on my blog and you will be entered to win! πŸ™‚

I made a card for this occasion, the set is usually for Birthdays, but I saw a panda with a Christmas hat somewhere and thought it was so cute! πŸ™‚

DSC00468

I used Stampin’ Up!Β  Real Red cardstock.Β  The tree is from Peaceful Pines, the sentiment from Snowflake Sentiments, The hat is from Jolly Friends, it also had a punch for the hat, and of course, the panda is from Party Pandas, all sets from Stampin’ Up! I believe they are all retired, but Stampin’ Up! has a lot of sets that are similar and the new Holiday catalog will be coming out before you know it! πŸ™‚

I cut down the hat and white hat band, it was a little too big, but it helped to have the punch πŸ˜‰Β  The panda actually has a card in his hand.Β  I cut out his arms and made a little Christmas gift and colored it with Stampin’ Up! markers.Β  I drew the bow right onto his lower face πŸ˜‰Β  The inks I used were Crushed Curry, Old Olive, Real Red and Early Espresso on the tree trunk.

I am personally supplying 3 Stampin’ Up! stamp sets.Β  One on Dena’s blog and 2 on my blog.Β  I have two sets of Party Pandas πŸ™‚Β  These were very popular and very cute! πŸ™‚

DSC00469

I enjoyed making all these cards and encourage you to check out Fred She Said and Stampin’ Up!

 

Thank you so much for supporting Send a Smile 4 Kids and our wonderful sponsors of this blog hop. Good luck in the drawings! Leave a comment here and hop for more chances at many prizes.

THE NEXT STOP IS: Anne Slattery

Freshly Made Sketches #319 & Encouragement

Some of you must wonder what I do that I don’t have time for many cards.Β  I adopted one of my grandsons, and he’s only 6.Β  Quite a handful for someone in their 60s, at least I think so! lolΒ  I also have 2 sons, 3 daughters and 10 other grandchildren! πŸ™‚Β  Four of my granddaughters live right down the street and their family doesn’t have a car so I do all the driving.Β  Plus I manage cards for 4 hospitals!Β  There is seldom a dull moment in my house! lol

You may think all this time I haven’t made any cards, but I have πŸ™‚Β  I’m going to show you some of my cards today, because my theme is Encouragement cards.Β  A number of people have asked about Encouragement cards, so I’m going to show you some, and give my advice for making them, and it’s easy! πŸ™‚

First off I want to show the card I made for Freshly Made Sketches #319, I will also post it on the Send A Smile 4 Kids challenge blog πŸ™‚Β  Here is the #319 sketch:

FMS Final 319-001

And here is my card:

aDSC01813

What can I say, my cards aren’t really exciting, I make them for kids, I try to make them cute and fun πŸ˜‰Β  What can be more cute and fun than this adorable little panda?!Β  You can get it free from Stampin’ Up! with a $50 purchase during Sale a Bration! πŸ™‚Β  I bought the cute envelope paper at Snap Click Supply Co.Β  I got it last week on $1.00 Wednesday.Β  They have rotating digital products for sale every Wednesday πŸ™‚Β  I saw the paper and knew right away what I wanted to do.Β  I fussy cut my little panda.Β  As always I kept close to the sketch and my card is clean and simple πŸ™‚

Now for some other cards I’ve been making:

This is mostly digital papers that I printed with my computer and printer, but you could use paper stacks.Β  You could use any paper, with any theme.Β  People seem confused when I say Winter theme cards.Β  These are Winter themed Encouragement cards.Β  Winter papers with Encouraging sentiments πŸ™‚

Also Winter themed with Encouraging words.

I made these Winter themed Encouragement cards with older (teen, pre-teen) kids in mind.Β  All Stampin’ Up! products.Β  These are certainly not the only type of card that is Encouraging.Β  Fall, Winter, Spring, and Summer all have nice papers and images that can be considered Encouraging πŸ™‚

I’m including some cards from Vicki Luebke of IN πŸ™‚

Now click on the images to enlarge and read some of the sentiments.Β  Some of my sentiments were rubber stamps and some printed off my computer.Β  I’m pretty sure Vickie’s were computer generated.Β  It works out great if you can size them so they fit into punches or dies that you already have.Β  Please no hand written sentiments.

There are many more sentiments that you can find or print.Β  Great Job, Good Job, Have a Wonderful Day, Wishing you Sunshine, You Did it, Congrats, Be Brave, Be Strong, Be Happy, Smiles, Hugs, Enjoy Your Day, Make Memories, Have Fun.Β  If you can think of anything that might be good for Encouragement, feel free to add it to the comment section!

If you still have questions, you can ask in the comments or email me for a more personal answer πŸ™‚Β  I plan to make more Encouragement cards for other Seasons.

Thank you Vicki for letting me share your Encouraging cards!

I hope you all have enjoyed these cards! πŸ™‚Β  Thanks for coming by whether you send in cards or just join us for inspiration, I appreciate your interest! πŸ™‚Β  I hope you can come by again! πŸ™‚

It’s was warm earlier this week but we’ve fallen back down to the single digits 😦  Hence my signature of snowmen! lolΒ  Spring is coming…….sometime…….wait for it! πŸ™‚

My card will be submitted at Freshly Made Sketches #311 I will also post it on the Send A Smile 4 Kids challenge blog πŸ™‚Β  I’m thinking this card would be good for a teen πŸ˜‰Β  Here’s this weeks sketch:

FMS Final 311-001

Here’s my card:

aDSC01515

I thought it was a little hard to see, so I took the photo again with a green background.

aDSC01518

It’s hard to tell about the silver accents in either photo I think 😦

Well, on to my guest donors πŸ™‚Β  First I have Deborah Caldwell of MI πŸ™‚

Thanks Debbie for these great Christmas cards! πŸ™‚Β  I love to get cards early for a holiday! πŸ™‚Β  Some of our kids need to mail their cards and I like to have plenty of time for them to get where they need to go πŸ™‚

Thank you Janelle for the great cards and the early Christmas! πŸ™‚

Now I want to share some cards from Trish Cudney of MN πŸ™‚Β  Trish sent in Winter cards! πŸ™‚Β  Winter cards are really important, Christmas isn’t the only thing going on during Dec., Jan., and Feb.

Lots of Thinking of You, and “no sentiment” cards, these can be used for anything in the Winter! πŸ™‚Β  Really cute examples of layouts and look at those same images with different layouts and papers, you know I love those! πŸ™‚Β  Also, don’t be afraid to send up to 10 of the same card.Β  I have 4 hospitals now and can divide them up πŸ™‚

Thank you Trish for sending some early Christmas cards! πŸ™‚ Trish shared that the papers she used were 6×6 pads from Echo Park, “A Perfect Winter” and Carta Bella, “Cabin Fever”.

I appreciate you all and the wonderful cards you send for our kids! πŸ™‚Β  I can’t imagine our kids without holiday and general cards, I don’t even want to 😦  It must be so exciting to receive a card while in the hospital! πŸ™‚Β  You are the ones spreading those smiles, be proud! πŸ™‚

Thanks for coming by today and looking at the great cards that donors share! πŸ™‚Β  If you are part of our group, I’m so glad you’re here! πŸ™‚Β  If you just come by for inspiration, I hope you found some! πŸ™‚Β  I appreciate every one of you!! πŸ™‚

FMS Final 308-001

Those of you who know me, know that I stick pretty close to the sketch, so here’s my card:

aDSC01409

Everything on this card is Stampin’ Up!Β  Almost everything is from the new Holiday catalog that you can see here on my page, upper right.Β  The sentiment is from an older set, but still Stampin’ Up!Β  I used the new Christmas Quilt Stamp set, Quilt Builder Framelits Dies, Quilted Christmas 6×6 Designer Series Paper, Stitched Felt Embellishments and the Quilt Top Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

Quite a mouthful, but I can hardly wait to use it for other occasions than Christmas!Β  Also used is Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green Cardstock, and one of the sheets from the Designer paper stack.Β  I hope you like it πŸ™‚

Now, on to my guests! πŸ™‚Β  First I have Janelle Klapperich of SD πŸ™‚

Thank you Janelle for these great Halloween cards and I love the Dinos! πŸ™‚

Last is Lillian Abrams from MI πŸ™‚Β  Lillian says she has a friend who colored a lot of the cards and then she put them together, great job ladies! πŸ™‚Β  Now this is a set up to get you in the mood for……..Christmas! πŸ™‚

Doodle Pantry & Send A Smile 4 Kids

I’ve been sick for a few days, and I’m afraid it may get worse, before it gets better 😦  Probably just a cold, I don’t understand how they can make you feel so miserable! 😦

I have the new Stampin’ Up! Holiday catalog near the top on the right side of my page! πŸ™‚Β  You can order now if you’re interested, I’d be happy to be your Demonstrator! πŸ™‚

I hope everyone is well and enjoying the beginnings of Fall ! πŸ™‚Β  I love Fall and I have a number of cards to share with you today! πŸ™‚

First is my card for the Doodle Pantry sponsorship of Send A Smile 4 Kids! πŸ™‚Β  I will enter it in both blogs πŸ™‚

asdc11212

Hmmm, it looks blurry here, but if you click to enlarge, it looks just fine πŸ™‚ I used some misc. paper on the right, a couple stickers on the left, and an digital image by one of our sponsors, Doodle Pantry! πŸ™‚Β  To make the card, I used Thinlits-Circle Card die (retired) by Stampin’ Up!Β  It’s so easy to make this cute card ! πŸ™‚

 

Now for some fun SAS4Kids donor cards! πŸ™‚Β  First I want to show some cards from my friend,Β  Jill Blasche of TX πŸ™‚Β  She has made some great examples of Fall themed cards that aren’t Halloween.Β  She also has sent in some cards made for two of my hospitals and then changed them up just a little, so they can go to my hospital with no embellishments πŸ™‚

Ok, the orange one looks kind of Halloween, but it doesn’t have to be πŸ˜‰Β  Both cards are made two ways.Β  On the orange card, it’s made with googly eyes on the left, and on the right, it has just card stock eyes.Β  On the leaf card, on the right, you can see she used some string and a button.Β  On the left there is a paper button and just a strip of card stock in brown.Β  All of the cards are great and with minimal effort, changed into a card with no embellishments!

Again, the black card could be Halloween, but it has a general sentiment.Β  The black card on the left has ribbon, and the one on the right has card stock that looks like a ribbon πŸ™‚Β  The pumpkin card has a nice Fall theme, with a general sentiment.Β  the one on the right has ribbon and three gems.Β  The one on the right has green card stock and three punched holes to represent gems, very clever πŸ™‚

Two more that look like Halloween, but have general sentiments, and two more that are very Fall looking πŸ™‚

Four general cards included in the box, I love the birds! πŸ™‚Β  Thank you Jill for all these wonderful cards! πŸ™‚

Next I have cards from Diane Herniman from ON, Canada πŸ™‚Β  Diane makes wonderful cards with flowers from her garden and her dog, birds, and other live or flying things in her yard!

This is the front and inside of one of Diane’s cards.

On the left is the front and back of the card, and on the right is the inside πŸ™‚

All card fronts, gorgeous photos! πŸ™‚

On the left are two fronts and on the right is the envelope and card front πŸ™‚Β  Thank you Diane for your beautiful cards! πŸ™‚

Next is Yara Baird from WA,and she has a blog you can visit HERE.Β  Yara may have sent to other volunteers at SAS4Kids, but she is new to me πŸ™‚ Yara has sent in a wide variety in her box! πŸ™‚

Summer all the way to New Year! πŸ™‚Β  Thank you Yara for your wonderful cards! I know the kids will enjoy these cards! πŸ™‚

I know, it’s a long blog, but I’ve been gone a while πŸ˜‰Β  One last donor, and that is Vicki Luebke of IN πŸ™‚Β  Vicki sends in a lot of cards, she is really good with encouragement cards! πŸ™‚

Great cards, Vicki, wonderful selection! πŸ™‚Β  Thank you Vicki for your continued support of our kids! πŸ™‚

All of the card makers on my team are talented and generous!! πŸ™‚Β  I couldn’t do my job without all of you! πŸ™‚

It’s taken me two days to finish this or more, I can’t remember, I hate being sick! 😦

I want to thank all of my cardmakers and everyone who has stopped by today for some inspiration! πŸ™‚Β  I hope to be back soon with a brain that’s not filled with oatmeal!

Merry Monday #197, Easter & SAS4Kids

This has been a horrible month for me! 😦  I had Strep Throat, a cold, and now a Sinus infection! 😦  I am not a happy camper:(

What cheers me up is to make cards, sort cards, box cards & send cards!Β  Actually, anything that involves cards makes me smile! πŸ™‚Β  So I’m here to share some Easter cards with you! πŸ™‚

First, my card, is for Merry Monday #197.

197 aaSDC19704

One of my card makers used this embossing folder by Darise, I loved it so much, I had to get it!Β  It folds up at the corners and looks like a photo frame:)Β  Here’s a side view:

aSDC19709

For this card I used the Darise Embossing Folder, I think it’s actually called Photo Frame.I used Stampin’ Up! Real Red cardstock, White Glimmer Paper, and Wink of Stella clear glitter brush.Β  I used a digital image from BellasScrapsnClips on Etsy.Β  One more photo to show you the Wink of Stella:)

bbSDC19710

I put the Wink of Stella on all the snow, I think it looks really pretty! πŸ™‚Β  Next I have some guests with Easter cards! πŸ™‚Β  First up is Cyndie Reis of CA:)Β  Cyndie has sent in cards a couple of times now:)

Aren’t these cute!?Β  The colors, the papers the cutouts, all are so adorable! πŸ™‚Β  Thank you so much Cyndie for finding us and sending cards in! πŸ™‚
