Send A Smile 4 Kids March 2018

I am so sorry that I have been so slow in posting! 😦  I’m going to try and post at least twice a month 🙂  I’m going to be joining the SAS4Kids Design Team in May, 2018 🙂  Hopefully that will keep me on track with twice a month 🙂

I’m going to be entering this card into the SAS4Kids challenge, Anything Goes/Cards for Boys.   Here is my card for boys:

aDSC01848

This card was made with a stamp from Stampin’ Up! called Magical Day.  I used a sentiment from my stash and digital paper that I found on Esty.  The circles are both dies from Stampin’ Up!  This card was fun and easy, I’m hoping a boy at one of our hospitals will really like it! 🙂

Now on to some guests! 🙂  First I have Janelle Klapperich of SD with Mother’s Day and Father’s Day cards! 🙂

Thank you Janelle, for these wonderful cards! 🙂  I love how you made Mother’s Day cards with only sentiments and beautiful papers! 🙂  Your Father’s Day cards are simple but effective 🙂  A wonderful section of each! 🙂  I’m assuming you will send more Father’s Day cards 😉

Next is Diane Herniman from Canada 🙂  Diane and Janelle are both repeat senders and I appreciate their continued support of our kids! 🙂

Diane always finds such wonderful papers! 🙂  Her cards are also very unique 🙂  Thank you Diane for these beautiful cards for Mother’s Day, I’m sure our kids will love sharing them with their moms! 🙂

I am so thankful for those of you who support our cause! 🙂  I’m also thankful for those just coming by to look and get some inspiration! 🙂  Please visit again and hopefully I will be making more posts per month! 🙂

Freshly Made Sketches #319 & Encouragement

Some of you must wonder what I do that I don’t have time for many cards.  I adopted one of my grandsons, and he’s only 6.  Quite a handful for someone in their 60s, at least I think so! lol  I also have 2 sons, 3 daughters and 10 other grandchildren! 🙂  Four of my granddaughters live right down the street and their family doesn’t have a car so I do all the driving.  Plus I manage cards for 4 hospitals!  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 🙂  I’m going to show you some of my cards today, because my theme is Encouragement cards.  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! 🙂

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 🙂  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 😉  What can be more cute and fun than this adorable little panda?!  You can get it free from Stampin’ Up! with a $50 purchase during Sale a Bration! 🙂  I bought the cute envelope paper at Snap Click Supply Co.  I got it last week on $1.00 Wednesday.  They have rotating digital products for sale every Wednesday 🙂  I saw the paper and knew right away what I wanted to do.  I fussy cut my little panda.  As always I kept close to the sketch and my card is clean and simple 🙂

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.  You could use any paper, with any theme.  People seem confused when I say Winter theme cards.  These are Winter themed Encouragement cards.  Winter papers with Encouraging sentiments 🙂

Also Winter themed with Encouraging words.

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

I’m including some cards from Vicki Luebke of IN 🙂

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

There are many more sentiments that you can find or print.  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.  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 🙂  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! 🙂  Thanks for coming by whether you send in cards or just join us for inspiration, I appreciate your interest! 🙂  I hope you can come by again! 🙂

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

Happy Mother’s Day at SAS4Kids

Mother’s Day is coming next month! 🙂  I finally made some cards that I’ve been seeing everywhere!  I love these cards and I think they’re great for Mother’s Day:) So I’m going to get right to it.  I made all these cards myself:)  I’m going to enter one into the challenge over at Send A Smile 4 Kids, take a look:)

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAThis is what the paper looked like before I cut it up.  It’s a sheet from Stampin’ Up! called Painted Blooms.  The other side is beautiful too! 🙂

abSDC15175abSDC15169abSDC15178

I did the top row first. I used Soft Sky for the words and background.  I felt the words came out too light.  One the second card, I also used Soft Sky for the background, but Blushing Bride for the sentiment background.  I used Rose Red for the rest of the sentiments because I liked the way it looked;)  The third card, I used Crushed Curry, even though that wasn’t one of the colors listed for the paper package.  I thought it went better with the flower centers.

abSDC15172abSDC15174abSDC15170

On this row, I used Blackberry Bliss, Soft Sky and Rose Red for the backgrounds.  The center one has a little butterfly cut from the reverse side.  The card on the right has Dazzling Delights added to the purple flowers.  I couldn’t find any SU sentiments that I liked so I used a Mother’s Day stamp from Recollections, the Michaels brand.

There’s no shipping charges on any Stampin’ Up! order this week until Friday, April 10th! 🙂  Let me know if you would like to order anything:)

Here are some Birthday cards I made:)

abSDC15323

abSDC15181For this one, I used some paper out of a stack by Prima, called Firefly, I think it’s retired, but still beautiful:)  This is one of the more plain papers, my granddaughter picked it out:)  I cut it with a Memory Box die, Grand Happy Birthday.  I added a little bow in Stampin’ Up! Daffodil Delight.  The bird I got from Dozens Of Paper Cuts on Etsy.  I ordered two sets and I requested Stampin’ Up! Brights and Subtles.  Sue does a great job! 🙂

abSDC15201Another bird from Dozens Of Paper Cuts. I used the same Memory Box Die as above.  I stamped the birthday hat from a SU set that I just can’t remember right now:(  I cut out the hat part and then cut a small circle with a Stampin’ Up! hand punch, I think the 1/16th.  The paper is Night of Navy, and the DSP is from the current Occasions catalog, it’s called Birthday Bash Specialty because it has some embossed gold foil.  I printed mine with My Digital Studio.  I’m going to use the “real” paper next time to get the gold embossing:)

abSDC15203Again I used Designer Series Paper, Birthday Bash Specialty, and Night of Navy. I used the same Memory Box Die.  The little dragon is from Lawn Fawn, called Critters Ever After.  It has a matching die set.  The balloons I cut out of SU cardstock, Tempting Turquoise, Daffodil Delight, and I think Old Olive, but I could be wrong about the green.  I colored the dragon with my Stampabilities markers.  I drew the balloon strings with my SU white pen.  I did use My Digital Studio to print my Birthday Bash paper, so it doesn’t have any gold in it:(  I like it, but I will use my paper package next time:)

I forgot to post some of my own Easter cards so I will add those here.  I made them for SAS4Kids, I was thinking teenager cards;)

For these I used a new stamp set from the Stampin’ Up! Occasions catalog called, For Peeps’ Sake.  The SU DSP is retired, Kaleidoscope.  I got it when it was in the Clearance Rack! 🙂  I used SU Crushed Curry and Bermuda Bay as my background cardstock.

Please be sure to read my post about my May Blog Candy!

Thanks for coming by today! 🙂  I’m not sure what I’ll be posting yet, it will be a surprise for all of us;)
