Birthdays Rock and So Do You!

Hello!  I am back with another card to show you.  I have doing posts twice a day to try to catch up on cards I made but haven't shown you.  Today's card was made for my hubby's birthday back in May.  Enjoy!
 
 
 

 
This card is perfect for him as he has a music collection, LPs from floor to ceiling on every wall in his room!  Really simple card, but fun, right?

See you tomorrow for two more catching up cards!
Happy Stamping!

Happy Graduation!

Hello!  I am still playing catch up with cards that I have made but not shared.  This card is one I made for a friend at church that needed a grad card for her granddaughter who was getting her masters.  I found a piece of paper at the scrapbook store that totally made this card.  Enjoy!




Above I am also showing you the inside which I did on the computer.  Love the sentiment!  For the card, the hat was made with a black square, a homemade tassel, and dies from Impression Obsession.  Perfect!
 
I will see you this evening with another card!
Happy Stamping!

You're Dog-Gone Awesome!

Hello!  This is my second post today as I am doing a little catching up with card creations I have made but haven't shared here.  Today's card was made for my hubby for Father's Day from the "girls", the Chihuahua's!  I know it is silly, but it works, right?  Enjoy!


It's a hoot, for sure!  On the inside I put "To Us"!  The other funny thing is that on the back of the card where I would sign my name and date it, I put "hired by CoCo and Foxy, made by Tina"!  Ha, Ha!  With those names, can you see why the images are colored the way they are? 

See you tomorrow as I continue this catching up!
Happy Stamping!

Beautiful You!

Hello!  I am back with two more posts today with cards you have not seen.  The card this morning is one I made for a lady at church that was turning 99!  She is a painter and so I really wanted to do something that looks artistic.  At the scrapbook show, the week before, I had bought this stamps set by Altenew that I had been wanting for a while and I knew this would be the perfect set to use for her card, because it looks like the flowers are painted.  Enjoy!

 
 
 
I do have to say, it was a little complicated to figure out how to layer the images.  I had a chart from pinterest but even with it, I still had to use my "thinker"!  The results?  Great!  I used the Spellbinders die to finish it off.  I love it, what do you think? FYI, this set from Altenew is called Painted Flowers.
 
I will be back this evening with another card creation for my "catching up"!
Happy Stamping!

Happy 60th!

Hello!  If you follow me on Facebook, you might have already seen the cards, as my friend put them on her wall and tagged me. 

I realized I have a bunch of cards that I have made in the last couple of months that I haven't put on my blog for you to see.  That is not acceptable and so this week, you are gonna see two posts a day from me so I can do a little catch-up!  I didn't know which to show you first, so I decided to go in the order they were made.  So, first up are two cards I made for friends, a husband and wife, both turning 60!   Enjoy!

 

 
 


Both stamp images are from Art Impressions and the man with the cake actually has a woman on the stamp too, but I did a little masking to cut her off.  I could have done a joint card, but I really wanted to do one card for each of them.  I am not sure you makes the sentiments I used, as they were from my stash and they were unmounted.  So perfect though, aren't they? 

See you tomorrow, in the morning and the evening for more catch-up card creations!
Happy Stamping!

Saturday's Sketch Share (On Monday!)

Hello!  Sorry about being late with the share for last week.  Between being my teaching week and me going off to Fort Worth to go to some friend's 60th birthday party, I totally forgot!  And then yesterday, I never thought of it.  Oh, well ... better late than never!  This is my motto for the week because I have a bunch of cards that I haven't shown you and I am going to be doing a little catch up.  First, let's do the share!  The sketch is one of the ones that is tall and skinny.  I will show you my card, Debbie's card and the sketch we both used.  Enjoy!

Debbie's Card
 
The Sketch
At first glance, I thought, oh my goodness, there is a lot going on and was worried how it would come out knowing the card is only 3 1/2" across.  But, I have to say, when they are done, not bad! They really don't look that busy.  I think I kinda like this one.  But you do have to make sure that the main image in the square is small or it will not fit!  (I think Debbie had this trouble!) 

I will be back late today with another card creation to do my "catch-up"!

Happy Stamping!

Saturday's Sketch Share!

Hello!  I am back today with another share between Debbie and I.  This week's sketch is SO SIMPLE, and even though I am not always a fan of the clean and simple look, I kinda like this one.  Let me show you our cards to see what you think.  Enjoy!

The Sketch
The stamps I used are OLD, as from when I had my store!  Yea, I used something out of my stash!  I guess I did it so I could say, "I use what I have"! Well, that might be so, but I still want and buy more ... yesterday at the convention and today online!  Yikes!  But FUN!

Hope you like today's cards.  Summer Fun at it's best!
I have a couple of cards to make today, so I had better get to that, as this is my teaching week and therefore lots to get done on that!  See you soon!

Happy Stamping!
Tina
