Praying For You Cards Week 2!

Hello!  Today I am showing you the second set of cards I made for the church "gig" of making and sending 8 praying for you cards weekly to a church in Fort Worth.  Today's card is using one Spellbinders cross and die cutting and creating with the negative cut away image. To have variety and so that I wouldn't get bored making every card just alike.  I put different colors of paper behind each panel.  I used a 6 x 6 pad I have had that has never had a sheet torn out to be used until now.  Yipee, using what I have!  I have two photos for you.  One close-up and one showing all the cards.  Enjoy!

I love how all of these came out.  See you tomorrow for the next set of cards I have to show you.

Happy Stamping!

Praying for You Cards Week 1!

Hello!  I am continuing on with showing you many creations that I have made in the last several months that I have not shown you here.  All of this week, I will be showing you sets of 8 cards that I created for the request I talked about last week for a church in Fort Worth that was interested in praying for you cards.  I was told that I could do the same card for the eight but you know me, it is hard to do that.  So, like with today's cards, I did I think 4 of the first card and then 2 each of 2 other similar ones to create the 8 cards.  Today's cards features a pretty tulip.  I do want to say that I made this set in probably March, so the tulip was right in the season of Spring.  Enjoy ...

The fun part about the last 4 cards (2 sets of 2) are that you die cut the two panels at the same time and this creates 2 cars. It such a simple but pretty idea.  The first card is pretty too, but not as simple.  And since I am only getting paid $3 per card, I have to do simple.  Love how all of these came out.  I will see you tomorrow for the next set!

Happy Stamping!

Praying for You Sample 5!

Hello!  Today's card is five of five of sample cards that I spoke about in Monday's post.  This card is not quite as simple as the others, but it is pretty!  Enjoy!

I had just a few scraps of this lovely scrapbook paper leftover from a class and was so glad I could make it work for the card.

Continuing the story from Monday ... the lady liked the cards I sent for samples.  She changed the weekly amount to 8 and said I could each week do the same or different.  Tomorrow, I will be back to show you the first week of cards I sent. 

Happy Stamping!

Praying for You Sample 4!

Hello!  I am back today with four of the five cards I have for you for the samples sent.  Check out Monday's post for more info on the "why"!  Today's card is simple but so elegant.  Enjoy!

So, the die cut is from Memory Box.  This die cut cuts the flower out but for my card, I use the negative space that it cut away from the white panel. That space between the two flowers fell out but I taped it back in on the backside to get the full effect!  Don't you love this idea?

See you tomorrow for card #5!
Happy Stamping!

Praying for You Sample 3!

Hello! Back with card #3 of five.  I explained the "why" on Monday.  I hope you enjoy today's card!


Even though this one is simple, it does have some interest with the background cardstock being embossed and the die cut of the pretty window. 

Happy Stamping!

Praying For You Sample 2!

Hello!  I am back today with another simple praying for you card.  If you missed yesterday's post, check it out, because I gave the "why" of today's card.  Enjoy!

The ink background and the cardstock color is actually more of a green to match the ribbon. Not sure why this happens when you change the exposure setting sometimes.  That butterfly is a favorite of mine.  It is from Hero Arts. 

See you tomorrow for card #3!
Happy Stamping!

Praying For You Sample 1!

Hello!  I am back with more catching up.  Back in February, I got an email from a lady in Fort Worth asking if I could make praying for you cards for her church.  She originally said she would need 12 a week and asked me what I would charge.  I first told her $4 each, as that is what I usually charge,  Well, I think she didn't want to go as high as $4 and so after some back and forth, I told her I could do cards with less layers, in a more simple design than what I usually make and could do $3 instead.  I told her I could send her some examples.  So, for the next 5 days, I have the cards I sent her. Card 1 ... enjoy!

This one does have one DP layer and then one other layer, but still on the simple side.  Love this Verve set. 

See you tomorrow for card #2!
Happy Stamping!
