Special Order Cards #2

Wednesday, May 27, 2020
I actually get a fair amount of special order requests for cards. It is good because it stretches me.
I had a request for a birthday card with a bird on it (because the recipient's name is Robin). Each year I get the same request and I remembered that one of my friends had a Tim Holtz bird stamp set and I wanted to give it a try. - I also used PIECE OF CAKE stamp set, and some of my retired designer paper.
This next card I made for Josh to give to his daughter on her 16th birthday.
 I used the colored vellum from Sale-a-bration and the FOREVER BLOSSOMS Stamp Set
The Well Written Dies and the Hand Lettered Prose Dies came in handy to personalize her card.
This next  card request was for a get well card for a motorcycle dude!
I was very happy to have a sheet of Designer Paper left over from the Classic Garage (retired) Designer Paper Stack.
After Stamping the Gert Well Soon from HEALING HUGS Stamp Set with Real Red Ink, I punched it out with the LABEL ME LOVELY Punch, then ran it (and the 5/8" strip) through the Big Shot with the SUBTLE 3D Embossing Folder. This helped to keep it from feeling "flat." The red ribbon gave it the pop of color it needed.
This last card was a special order for someone new to me who asked for a sympathy card that would specifically have a cardinal on it, as when her friends mother passed away, there was a cardinal on the window ledge. I used stamps from my Paper Pumpkin kits along with the sympathy greeting from ITTY BITTY GREETINGS.

Special Order Cards

Tuesday, May 26, 2020
Today I thought that I would share some special order cards that I made for some friends and family.
One friend asked for some specific Mother's Day and Father's Day cards
This is a double gate fold, and there is a big story behind the M&M theme. Of course I had to google this image for the card.
For the Father's Day card she asked for a shirt card and the Country Club Designer Paper has some gorgeous plaid designs that worked perfectly
She even thinks her dad has a shirt with this exact plaid.  (I think my dad has one too!)
She has had to be distanced from her special guy and wanted a "I miss your face" card for him, and she loved the Well Dressed Stamp Set from Sale-a-bration with the hat, tie and shoes.
We chatted via text and between the 2 of us we came up with this cool card
I had to do the words on the computer because I had to size it down, but I love, love, love how this turned out.

Weekly Challenge

Monday, May 25, 2020
Last weeks weekly challenge for my team was to make a Floating Card.
I sent them a short how-to video based on a card that I CASED from Amanda Bates 

Then I challenged them to make their own card using the fold concept and change it up
They had fun with it and seemed (for the most part) to like this type of fold.
Karen made another get well card for hers - and knowing Karen, she sends out a ton of cards to the people at church and I am sure that they are completely encouraged by it. She used the Perennial Essence Designer Paper which is on SALE on the Retiring List for only $8.05 (#149100)
The second card came in from Linda B and this is Linda's first time to join in on our challenge which makes me super happy. Linda actually made 2 cards using this fold and I see she added Designer paper to the inside of her cards which is very pretty 

Next we have a card from Vicki - I'm not sure on this DSP, but what friend wouldn't appreciate getting a card like this.
And Lynda's card: using the Ornate Garden DSP
Our next card is from Anna
Anna used Painted Poppies stamp Set and the coordinating Designer paper
This next card is from Shirley
Shirley used the Clubhouse stamp set and the coordinating Designer Paper
This next card is from Inez.  She did a flip on the orientation of her card and look how cute it turned out! She used BACK ON YOUR FEET stamp set and some retired Designer Paper. She even used 2 of our new In-Colors - Just Jade and Bumblebee
Rachel sent our last card for this weeks challenge 
Ohhh! this makes me wish for a Tropical escape

The Masked Singer

Friday, May 22, 2020
Wednesday night was the final episode for season 3 of the Masked Singer
Third Place was the Frog - I really thought it would come down to the Frog and the Turtle
Who was it? Rapper Bow Wow - not a fan of rap, but I thought his costume was my favorite this season
Here is my Froggy Card in his honor
Second place was: The Turtle! Who was it?  Jesse McCartney - it's just so crazy how much I love watching this show, but I don't know 90% of the contestants.
And here is my Turtle Card in honor of The Turtle (who I really thought would win this season)
I have this cute little turtle mounted on a large plastic spring so he wiggles, making it so cute!
This card was inspired by Stamp Art Connection
OK so I guess you guessed it that the Night Angel Won Season 3 of the Masked Singer
Who was she? Kandi Burruss
And here is my Angel Card in her honor - This is a card that I made several years ago during a punch art class. Not quite the same as the NIGHT Angel, but it's what I had :)

I hope you have enjoyed my Masked Singer posts

Weekly Challenge Part 2

Tuesday, May 19, 2020
I challenged myself to make a card a day using a stamp set that I have not used before for the team weekly challenge.
Yesterday you saw me using the SWIRLY FRAMES Stamp Set.
The next card that I shared with them is called SO INVITING
Every summer we host a neighborhood picnic so I decided to use this set for the invites
I teamed it up with the OUTDOOR BARBECUE Stamp Set - both of these sets are on the RETIRING LIST so get them now before it is too late
The next card that I shared uses the BEAUTIFUL MOMENTS Stamp Set and the card was inspired by Teri a demonstrator in the UK
The BEAUTIFUL MOMENTS Stamp Set s carrying over to the new Annual Catalog but the BEST DRESSED Designer Paper is on the Retiring List. The Happy Birthday stamp used is called LABEL ME BOLD and this set is also on the Retiring List. - I cannot stress enough to get these products before it it too late.
Next up I used a Stamp Set called MY MEADOW.  I have had this set ever since it was given to us at the OnStage event in November, and for some reason I just never took the time to pull it out. It is returning in the annual catalog so I still have time to use it in my classes.
There are a lot of little pieces so this would probably be a good set for an avid stamper
These cards were inspired by Gail Ellis
Next up is COUNTRY HOME
Now I have to give a disclaimer on this set because I did borrow this set from my friend for a couple cards, but when I knew it did not retire, I thought that I should purchase my own set.
This card turned out so beautiful and was inspired by Brandi Randall on Pinterest (no blog link)
The next stamp set is UNDER MY UMBRELLA - again I need to give you a disclaimer that I have used this stamp set BUT once again I borrowed it from a friend, and when I found that it was going to be in the new Annual Catalog I thought I should purchase my own set.
If you buy it NOW - you can buy the BUNDLE with the UMBRELLA BUILDER PUNCH for a 10% discount.
This will make a wonderful bridal shower card
The last card and stamp set unused is WIGGLE WORMS
This set and dies can be purchased right now for a 10% discount, but they are on the 
retiring list so get them now before it is too late
I'm expecting that this set will come in handy for some cute 
scrapbook pages as well as some darling kids cards.

On this last card I used the butterflies from BEAUTY ABOUNDS.
The other Stamp Sets used are BORN TO SHINE and VERY VERSAILLES.  
BORN TO SHINE is on the retiring list (the dancer is an outline image so I just 
filled it in with the Basic Black Dark Stampin' Blend to make it a silhouette.
I was inspired by my recipe club friend, Rita Schwann, and I made this for Ava, Josh's 
14 year old daughter, for him to give her for her birthday.
Disclaimer: I have used Very Versailles many times as well as Born to Shine, 
but Beauty Abounds is new to me and I hadn't cracked the lid yet, and used it.
