Card Making, Send A Smile 4 Kids

Dollar Tree and Outline Stickers

I don’t know what it is about Dollar Tree but I can never walk out of this store empty handed because “It’s only a dollar” (as my cart has about 20 things in it).

I recently picked up a few of their sticker packs and here are three quick cards I created with things in my stash.

For this first card, I had the dot background in my card base stash already to go. I created it by using distress oxide inks and a dot stencil. I cut the circle die from papers in my stash. I then played around placing the stickers where I thought they would look good. I used a Happy Birthday Outline Sticker (huge fan of outline stickers). I placed the panel on black card stock and adhered that to a white card base.

For the second card I had the card base completed in my card base stash. I thought a frame around the toucan would make it stand out. The sticker is 3D so I didn’t have to do anything but adhere it to the card. I added the 3D balloon to look like it was coming from the parrot’s wing (hand). I added the three stars (from my stash), and again used a Happy Birthday Outline Sticker.

Again I found another card base in my stash which was made from the Stamps of Life birthday papers,  die cut the yellow circle from card stock, added the bird (not sure if he is a toucan or not). I added the Birthday Hat from another Dollar Tree Sticker Pack and added the balloons as well. Again, used a Happy Birthday Outline Sticker.

I am participating in the following challenges:

2 Crafty Critter Crazies – Must Feature A Critter
Allsorts – Lots of Dots.
Send A Smile 4 Kids – Anthing Goes 4 Kids

I am a shipper for Send A Smile 4 Kids and these cards will be going to them.

Scrapping for Less

I subscribe to Flavor of the Month Card Kit by Scrapping for Less. The first kit I received was called For the Love of Pets and I created this card using “Puppy Pals” (Newton’s Nook) for the current challenge over at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies.

Tuesday Throwdown 412

The current challenge at Tuesday Throwdown is For A Cause. I love donating my cards to good causes. I am one of many volunteer shippers for Send A Smile 4 Kids and collect donated cards from generous card makers all across our country to send to three hospitals for inpatient children who are seriously ill. I just recently started sending cards to the Vets in Pennsylvania Veterans Homes. I donate cards to a local nursing home at Christmas and also to my church for widows/widowers for Valentine’s Day.

The card I am sharing today will be going to my childhood friend Peggy who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer — cancer in both breasts different kinds of cancer in each breast. Good news is the PET scan was clear. On a side note – if you can’t remember when to get your mammagram choose to do it for your birthday each year and you won’t forget.

Thinking-of-You-Cause-Chall

I used Simon Says Stamp Spring Flowers heat embossed with Ranger white detail embossing powder adhered to a Kraft cardbase and colored with Copics. Thinking of You Dies and Stamp are from Casual Fridays.

Boo Ti Ful Halloween

Today I created a Halloween card using a stamp and die set from Sugar Pea Designs called Monster Mash.

I would like to play along at Double Trouble Paper Crafting Challenge #11. The challenge is to use black and white and only one other color (I chose orange). They call it Double Trouble because there is always a twist or two (check them out they are a really fun challenge). One of the twists to to link your card up to  The Crafters Cafe Challenge.

Also I will be playing along with Cards In Envy which is to create Something Spooky. Because I am a volunteer for Send A Smile 4 Kids I like to make non scary kid friendly cards.

I will also be playing along with my friends at Live Love Cards and linking this card up to Darlene’s Halloween Challenge.

Up In The Air

Our oldest son lives in a rural area and close to a little airport that offers hot air balloon rides (no thank you). When we visit when it is getting closer to sunset we like to sit out on his deck and watch the hot air balloons. They are so beautiful and peaceful to look at.

Tuesday Throwdown‘s current challenge is Up In The Air. Here is my card.

TTupintheair0818

Here is a close up showing all the sparkle.

TuesThrowdownupintheair0818

I used an outline sticker from Krazy Kreations adhered it to glittered cardstock (SSS) and colored it with copic markers. Sometimes the sticker doesn’t adhere very well but I add the smallest amount of glue to help it along. Then I fussy cut it out. The cloud paper was from my stash and I ran it through the cuttlebug using the birthday embossing folder (my favorite). The critters are from Your Next Stamp and the grass is a stamp from Stamps by Judith.

I am a shipper for Send A Smile 4 Kids and this will be going to them.
