    Take Life by the Reins – Flip Card

    I thought this card would make a great graduation card.  It is a flip card that opens to reveal a different picture in the circle.

    I kept the colors pretty simple and the horse images were stamped in brown and the trees with garden green. No bling for this card just in case you would want to give it to a male.  I did add a little twine to the left of the card on the front.

    Mother’s Day Shirt Card

     

    This card is for all the mother’s out there that won’t be with their children this year due to the corona virus. It has been an uphill battle all over the world but we are making progress.

    I made this card with Stampin Up designer paper. I chose pink because it is one of my mother’s favorite colors.

    The first thing I did was cut a circle for the neck and then cut a scallop circle just a little bigger to look like a collar. I added about a 2 inch rectangle of white card stock at the top and then added a strip of pink card stock to go down the front and added pearls for buttons.

    For the inside I cut a couple of the flowers out of the designer paper and used the remainder of the card stock and put it to the bottom.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there!

    Copper Letters Birthday Card and Spinner Card

    For the end of the month I thought I would post both of these cards since they are both for birthdays.

    The first one is using some of Stampin Ups designer paper that has bits of copper in the design.  Each of the flowers were fussy cut before I colored the flowers with pink and green ink.  I then layered an embossed piece of green vellum for the  background. I then stamped a birthday sentiment on the inside.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    This next card is one that we used to do by hand.  It is called a twirling or spinner card.  The main piece in the center used string or fishing line to make it twirl around, but now there is a special die that will do all of that for you. I used copic markers to color the vase and flowers and used a patterned paper for the background.  I added a small birthday sentiment on the front and left the inside blank so that you can add your own message.

    Sunset

    I love how this card turned out.  The colors just say relax and watch the sunset.

    I first stamped the trees and mountains with black and then embossed them with clear embossing powder to give it a little shine.

    To create the sunset I colored the area where the sun is with yellow ink and then covered the area with a circle.  My next step was to add more yellow around the card and then orange and then a deep red. I also added these colors into the water.  I wrapped some twine on the bottom and attached the little hello sentiment.

    Another card to send to someone and let them know you are thinking of them during this quarantine time.
