I is my middle child’s birthday today and I have made him a card using a digikit called RockStar from Daily Trail. The cards is flat and has a co-ordinatinting insert. The font came from a different digikit. I love the simplicity of this card as my boy – like most 12-year-olds is not into fussy cards.
For my second All That Jazz challenge post I have made a CAS card using the grand piano and added my own sentiment. Perfect for the piano teacher!
I have had Craft Artist 2 for some time now but I am learning to do different things every time I use it.To get this effct of the border, I used to layer 2 squares but today I discovered that it is far easier to use just one square and make a thick boder around the shape!
This is the time of year when children thank their teachers – but what about music teachers? I have made this card today for The Cheerful Stamp Pad, using a digistamp and backing papers from SentimentabaSusan – available at the Stitchy bear outlet. I have used stash from Kanabn’s McKenzie and Stampunk ranges to collate the card and the beautiful acetate overlay is from Hunkydory.
As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace:
I have made a musical card for today’s project. The Digistamp is from The Paper Shelter, and is called Cecilia. I have coloured her using my ever-trusty Promarkers, using the following colours:
Hair: Buttercup, Mustard, Sandstone, Cocoa
Skin: Sunkissed Pink, Blush
Dress: Pear Green, Moss
‘Cello: Walnut, Rosewood, Terracotta, Honeycomb
The papers I have used are called Prima Botanical and were free a while ago with the magazine, Simply Cards and Papercraft. The sentiment stamp was free from the same magazine and is stamped onto a fussy-cut segment from the paper pad.
I cut the music from a Sizzix decorative strip – my Sizzix dies are rather neglected since I bought my Grand Calibur, but still have so much to offer.
It is better for a man to hear the rebuke of the wise than to hear the song of fools
I have a really rock ‘n’ roll melting pot for today’s card. The guitar digistamp is from Delicious Doodles – who are sponsoring the new challenge at Creative Moments. The decorative 8″ x 8″ card base is from Kanban, as is the gold embossed frame. The harlequin backimg paper is from Creative impressions washables range and I added a few peel-offs to emphasise the black and gold theme. Finally, the sentiment is from DoCrafts Art Deco line.
I printed and fussy-cut the digi and highlighted certain elements with a metallic gold pen.
He got a bass guitar and this little rock dude from Kenny K is perfect for him. The papers used to make up this card are from the aptly name Rock On range from Hot Off The Press and the letters are from Kanban.
I am entering my little bassist into these challenges:
Well, I have started my Christmas cards in earnest now and aim to have virtually all done within the next 2 weeks. As a teacher, I know that I will not have time after September when I go back to school, so it must be done now!
Today’s Christmas card is made with a Hunkydory kit – I have bought the card inserts as well ans I think thee really add to the quality of the finished product.
The pictures show the front, inside and back of the card. The rear has a panel cut from insert paper for a personal message.
This is a card made with a free colouring image for a friend’s son. The background is made with an embossig folder and the colour palatte was kept limited to reflect the boy’s school uniform. It i slightly different tp the sketch as I mde the main image the second layer and not the top one.
