Different Card, Different Day 2/6/18 February 06 2018, 0 Comments

If you've been following my blog, you've seen this adorable little mouse before. He's a Stampin' Up! rubber wooden stamp from 1996 that I colored in with watercolors. 

Originally in the stamp it reads "Hooray for you" between the mouse's hands but instead of stamping that part, I blocked it off with tape and arranged five red hearts made from punches. (Looks like he's juggling them).

Flip the card open and the inside reads "Whale you be my Valentine?" with a matching colored smiling whale.  I made this card for my Gram. She's 96 and I hand delivered it to her yesterday with a surprise visit. Needless to say...she loved it. 

The flip card was designed by The Stamps Of Life by Stephanie Barnard. The checkerboard border is also part of the cutting die set to make this card. I inked them in red distress inks. A red sheer ribbon runs up the length of the card and is tied in a knot.

"You make my heart happy".  I thought this was a wonderful way to wish my cousin a Happy Valentine's Day. 

That's one talented elephant! Not only is he holding that pink heart up high in his trunk, he's riding a bike. 

Sometimes putting things together that you normally wouldn't, creates something fun like this card.

When you want to say "Thank you" to someone, maybe saying it with this watercolored card makes it more special. I hope it did anyways to the friend of mine that I made this for. He needed a thank you card and wanted it to specifically say his personal message on the inside.

I carefully stamped the letters in StazOn ink and inked the edges in brown distress inks before matting on similar colored papers to the front of the card. What a great way to say "Thank you".

I visited with newly born baby Kelsea Skye for the first time today and of course brought this shaker card I made, to give to her parents. 

The shaker part of the card was where I put her handwritten name and a watercolor penciled giraffe, surrounded by tiny metallic hearts and sequins in matching colors.

Sitting in the lower left corner is a stack of happy watercolored animals. 

When opened, the card reads "welcome little one". The circular design comes from one of my cutting dies and fit around the plastic shaker bubble perfectly. It's colored with a black distress ink.


The front of the card is also distress inked but in yellow. I rub the ink over the embossed raised images with my foam pad. Those silver dots were made using Stickles.

This skull and guitar themed Valentine's Day card was made for someone that is not so traditional during this particular holiday.  She also happens to love skulls and anything "bad-ass". This was what I designed for her.  

To get this punisher skull to hold the envelope in his mouth, I used an exacto knife to cut around the teeth and then slid the stamped envelope in. I glued it into place with my tape runner.

Since today is the first of the month and February might be considered a month of love, I'm posting this card because it's one of the non-typical ones you'll see me post on my blog. 

I gave it to one of my best friends. And it's true...who needs a holiday to say I love you?

The golden wings and swirls make this card spectacular and shines with that golden glow.  The message was meticulously hand stamped with alphabet rubber stamps, trying to keep them lined up and straight.

Adding the four Phillips head screw brads on the front corners was the finishing touch that I thought this card needed.

"Lookin' sharp!" seems so much funnier of a saying when it's matched up with some prickly looking cactus. This card was given to a great guy named Doug for wishes of a quick recovery after his knee surgery. 

The close up to this shows that this cactus is dotted with little red flowers. Each of the cactus cutting dies are two pieces that are placed together after being colored with distress inks. There are many different color greens between all of the cactus combined.

Inside is a "Get well soon" message with a hand stamped green watercolored cactus.

I placed three yellow-greenish embellishments on one of the cactus to give it some dimension.

Sweets for my sweet...yum, yum, yum. This very pink shaker card has love written all over it. Well, a few "yum's", for sure!

Inside the gumball machine are pink iridescent hearts and beads that shake around against the hand stamped and watercolored heart background. Open up the cover and you'll find the open circular hole and a "candy kisses" design. 

A big gold swirl with gold hearts appears to be a love vine and gives a more decorated look (rather than just an open hole).

"Happy Valentine's Day" is stamped on the bottom of the inside of the card in StazOn black ink. The plastic bubble with the shaker beads inside stays in place leaving plenty of room to write a personal message.

When opened and in full view, this is what the card looks like inside.

Soar. Afterall, that's what butterflies do. This beautiful card sends "Best Wishes" and is metallic with shine.

The butterfly's body is a key and has a heart in it's center.  The wings are lifted off the card front as though it was flying away.

A matching little butterfly pops up off the page with an adhesive foam dot.

The inside also has butterflies soaring on matching plum and green paper. The green paper reminds me of the coloring of peacock feathers.

Here's a picture of it in front of my window, showing it in natural sunlight.

Stuck on You! This get well card was made for someone very special in my life that recently ended up in the hospital. I brought him this card to cheer him up.

Inside, appropriately is says "handle with care". I just love the cactus humor. 

Because the card base is black, I decided to use bright colors with the watercolors on the cactus flowers and the background papers. The image is a wooden rubber stamp that I just ordered and plan to make many more of these types of cards.

You make life bearable. And...I love you. Wow! This panda bear stamp designed by The Stamps of Life - Stephanie Barnard is showing a lotta love! Look at all those hearts too.

He is a cutie pie with his little pink nose. Because of the great quality of Stephanie's rubber stamps, I get a perfectly stamped image every time. I also recommend StazOn black permanent ink.

Inside the "Happy Valentine's" is placed leaving plenty of room for your own handwritten message. The pink tag with three hearts looks likes it is nailed to the coral pink colored strip (matches the background paper on the front).

Here's the card in front of my window, showing it in the natural sunlight.
