Waving Happy Birthday To You!

Hello!  I have a fun card to show you that I made for a long time friend (since 9th grade!).  I am older than her ... almost 2 months!  Ha, Ha!  Anyway, it is always fun to do cards stamped with older people images because we are there!  Here is my colorful, fun card.  Enjoy!

The image is large so that limits the sketch that will work.  Simple or not, it is so colorful it just makes me smile!  So funny!

See you tpmmorrow for the weekly share!
Happy Stamping!

I Dig You on Your 25th!

Hello!  Today's card I made for my Godson who is turning 25!  It was a fun one to make ...enjoy!

I got it mostly done and thought, it wasn't very birthday like.  So, that is when I die cut the balloons, added the number sticker and drew in lines to attach to the snail.  Pretty cute! 

I have one more for you that you haven't seen, so you tomorrow!

Happy Stamping!

Sweet Summertime!

Hello!  Today I have two cards on The Crafty Scrapper's blog.  Below is the copied post and below that you will see a couple more photos of the melon card, a view from the top and the inside view.  Enjoy!

Hello, it is Tina, here again, with some sweet summer cards just for you! 
Both cards are made with papers from Photoplay, Summer Daydreams line.
Those that know me, know I love shaped cards. 
When I saw the paper line, I just had to make one!

The finished size card is a little less than 5" x 3".  I used various circle dies from my stash, so I was limited to the size of the card but what dies I had.  It was also fun to get to use some flowers and twine from my stash!
For my second card, continuing the summertime theme ...

I used a favorite stamp and die set from My Favorite Things.
I have one tip here for you, the stripes for the popsicles were stamped in the same color as the popsicle but going over the first layer of dried ink, it creates the illusion of a darker color!
Be sure to pick up these sweet papers and more when you are at the store!

Happy Stamping!

I wanted you to see that the whole card got decorated.  Pretty cool!  Hope you like my cards.
See you tomorrow!
Happy Stamping!

Strike Up the Band Shaker!

Hello!  Yesterday I showed you a card I made with the mice set from My Favorite Things.  That card was a double slider card.  Totday's card used the same set, but this time, I did a shaker card.  Enjoy!
Do you love how I fussy cut around the tops of the mice so that the shaker part is right above?  The only thing I don't like is the stamped music notes at the top.  I started stamping them and went, oh no, but had to finish and had to leave it or I would be totally remaking the card.  Nope!   I made it for the preacher's daughter who turned 18, she loves music, was in the band, etc.  Her mom said she likes cutesy, so I knew this would be a fun card for her.  She really liked it.  How about you, cute?
See you tomorrow.
Happy Stamping!

Strike Up the Band Double Slider!

Hello!  I have a card for you today that I made for my niece earlier in the month.  I used a stamp set from My Favorite Things with adorable mice  Yes, mice can be adorable, if there aren't real!  A few months ago, in one of my classes, I taught a double slider card.  It is pretty easy to make but can be a "wow" for the receiver, so I decided to make one for her.  Here is the card.  Enjoy!

First, here is the card closed ...

 Next, you pull the ribbon on the right, and both sides slide out ...

And then the inside is one more place to add another adorable mouse ...
I love how this one came out.  I know she liked it too!

I will see you tomorrow for another card.
Happy Stamping!

Saturday's Sketch Share!

Hello!  I am back with the weekly share between Debbie and I.  I will show you my card, Debbie's card and the sketch we both used.  Enjoy!


My Card
Debbie's Card
The Sketch
What do you think of the sketch for this week?  I kinda like it.  As you know, there are many more vertical sketch ideas than horizontal ones, so it is nice to add one to the "go to list"!  The main panel is pretty large so that is helpful.  That duck image I used, I LOVE!  It just puts a smile on my face!  Silly me! 

I have I think four cards that I made this week or before that I haven't shown you, so I will try to get them ready for some posts starting on Monday! 

Have a good weekend!
Happy Stamping!

July Class Share!

Hello!  This last week I worked on my class samples.  In fact, for at least two and a half days I worked on them pretty much non stop because I knew I really needed to finish them so I could take them to the store Friday when I went for crop night. I had hoped to show them yesterday, but my computer was acting funny, so I put it off until today.  Two months ago, we did baby and wedding, then last month, we did guy cards, so I figure I might as well continue the occasions with sympathy, anniversary and get well.  In fact, there are two sympathy cards because I added one for the loss of a pet because I figure even if you are not a pet person, you know someone who is.  Let me show you the cards.  Enjoy!

The first one is a double z-fold card ...

The next view is how it looks when it is pulled open ...

The second card is the pet sympathy one ...

The next two photos shows the way the card folds, the one on the left shows what you see when the front panel is open but I added the second photo so you can see that the orangy color cardstock is the panel that is the actual fold-over. 

The third card is a Anniversary card.  First photo shows how it looks when it is received ...
Then the recipient pulls the ribbon ... and the message appears ...
And of course, it opens too ...

And finally, card four is a get well or in this case a get "whale" card.  Here it is closed ...
(looks a little like E.T. to me)!
But it opens, it looks like a whale again ...
And the next flap folds down to reveal the message panel ...

I love how all four came out.  I usually try to just do three cards for my classes, but she had gotten in the stamps set for pet sympathy so I just had to add it too! 

For those interested in either coming to class or getting a class kit, here are the details ...
