It seems I’ve settled into posting once a week, but I’m going to try and post twice a week:) It’s just so darn busy around here! With 7 people in one apartment, we just seem to recycle all the germs! 😦
I actually made this card for my brother’s birthday. My “baby” brother just turned 57, so hard to believe! I like this card so much, I’m going to make more than a couple of them for the kids! 🙂
I used an image from Doodle Pantry, they are one of our sponsors over at our SAS4Kids challenge! 🙂 This image is called Sweet Stuff and it’s free with any purchase! 🙂 The stripe paper is also in the kit with other candies and papers:)
I used a number of Stampin’ Up! products and I will list them in this paragraph. Embossing folder Large Polka Dot, cardstock, Real Red & Daffodil Delight, Stamp set A Round Array, with circle punches 1″ round, 7/8″ scallop, and for the inside I used the 1/2″ circle punch for the gumballs, and Smoky Slate ink pad.
The little blue gumball was cut from one of the papers I printed from the DP kit:)
Now on to some guests! 🙂 I have quite a collection tonight of mixed cards and some Easter:) My first guest is Robin Hayworth from NY:) Robin is a retired Dr. and her cards are clean & simple! 🙂
Aren’t these cute, I love them all! These are great cards for not only the younger ones but up into the next age group:) Great encouragement cards!
I love all the colors on these, bright and fun! 🙂
Here are some that would be great for the older kids! The flowers look hand painted! 🙂 Thank you Robin for these great cards! 🙂
My next guest is Kayla Ford from IL, my home state:) Kayla is going to knock you out with her colors and papers!
What did I tell you, bright and fun! 🙂
Even the “plain” kite card is adorable! These cards will bring sunshine to any room! Thank you Kayla for sharing your talent with our kids! 🙂
Jill Blasche from TX is next, she has been with me since I started and I love how I can ask her to make cards a certain way, and she does 🙂
Jill has a lot of sentiment stamps that I love! Look how different these cards are!
I had asked Jill to make some cards for teen boys, aren’t these great! ? Not girly at all!
I hope you get a kick out of the ones on the left:) My grandson, 4, colored these dinos, and I showed Jill, she asked if Lawrence would color some for her, and here they are! I think she did an awesome job, and so does Lawrence! 🙂 On the right, the tea cup card, has some beautiful gold stitching across the center, and I sent her the rose. It’s new from Stampin’ Up! the stamp set is called Rose Wonder, but all I used was the Rose Garden Thinlits Dies. I used my Big Shot to cut it out of white card stock, then I colored it with Blendabilities (retired). I love the way Jill put it on the sparkly craft cardstock and embossed it with dots all over! 🙂 Thank you Jill, for sharing with our kids and being a wonderful friend! 🙂
This post is getting pretty long, so one more guest, Ruby Taylor, from MS:)
These are so cute and bright, Ruby made several of each design, so more kids can enjoy them! 🙂 Thank you Ruby and all of my card makers, you are talented and generous! 🙂 I appreciate every single one of you! 🙂 I’m excited every time I get a box to share with our kids! 🙂
Thank you everyone who has stopped by today to visit, I appreciate you too! 🙂 I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing the cards and maybe got some inspiration for your own cards. Please visit our sponsor, Doodle Pantry, and our SAS4Kids challenge blog! 🙂 Hope to see you again soon!
