Over the Rainbow Crib

Had fun creating this baby card! Tons of artistic changes, ever had that happen? Saw some crib cards on Pinterest, so that is where I started. The original A2 base was a tight fit for this fun fold, so I had to do MATH to make an A6 base. The crib is off the floor because the original design was to have a band across the bottom of the Z fold with adorable critters from the Lawn Fawn Upon A Star set looking up at the crib. 

"Lucy" was stamped several times using different alpha stamps and several shades of pink. I chose the floaty freehand of Concord & 9th's Perfectly Penned for this card and SU Blushing Bride to match the ribbon on the crib. Everything finally came together!

Stamps: Hampton Art Mama Elephant Over the Rainbow (& dies), Concord & 9th     Perfectly Penned, SU Teeny Tiny Wishes
Dies: Memory Box Puffy Clouds, Altenew Lacy Panel, Gina Marie Designs                 Decorative Ribbon Border
Punches: SU Scalloped Tag Topper, SU Everyday Label
Misc: Wink of Stella (wings)

You Are Here

I fell in love with this card by Michele Ferguson. I have been wanting to make cards for a friend dealing with stage 4 pancreatic cancer but have been struggling with what to make. Michele's card is perfect! Here's my case:

The card from my previous post was a close case of her layout, this one cased the stamping. From Essentials by Ellen, by Julie Ebersole, the stamps are perfect. LOVE!!! Sent a set of these cards along with cards from the previous post. She will be able to send these out to friends. 💓

Heartfelt Thanks

Pleased with how this MFT (My Favorite Things) card came together. Making some of these for friends who have been receiving regular treatments and might have some favorite nurses or doctors they'd like to give a card to.

This CAS layout was cased from Michele Ferguson's awesome card here. I loved the stamp combo she used too, to be featured on my next post.

As soon as I saw the "beat" stamp from Keep On Rockin' I knew I wanted to pair it with the Super Hero In Scrubs set! The heart is a die from Band Aids.

Inside sentiment is so good!

Stamps: MFT Keep On Rockin', MFT Super Hero In Scrubs
Dies: MFT Wonky Stitched Rectangle, MFT Band Aids, SU Stitched Rectangle

Mailed a package to Toronto, first time ever mailing to Canada! Used pirate ship for the first time, very easy.

Safari Sunset

One of our friends loves elephants and has been planning on going on a safari for several years. He's hoping to go this year! Here's the birthday card I made for him.

I'm not great at blending, thank goodness for blending brushes! Blended some distress inks on a panel, then die cut the Safari Sunset. All of the elements were cut twice and layered. My kind of card, CAS die cut!

Stamps: Wplus9 Party Animal
Dies: Hero Arts Safari Sunset, Hero Arts Thorn Tree, Penny Black On Safari

Peek-A-Boo Pets Coffee Date

 Day 10 Online Card Classes Spring Card Camp 2022, Rainbows and Patterns day.

Inspired by the Gina K wreath builder template! I stamped dots using the wreath builder on scratch card stock. Used half of the wreath for spacing for this card. Poked holes through the template I made on to the patterned paper for proper spacing. The wreath template is a super tool, not just for wreaths!

Used so many favorites on this card: Avery Elle Peek-A-Boo Pets, Denami coffee mugs, and the Divinity Designs Latte Love paper.

Stamps: Avery Elle Peek-A-Boo Pets, Denami Petit Four Espresso set, Altenew Coffee Love (main sentiment), Concord & 9th Let's Chat (hello and my treat)
Dies: Avery Elle Oh Yeah! (speech bubbles), MFT Tea Party (hearts)
Paper: Divinity Designs Latte Love
