Cards for a Cause

I love making cards for the Humane Society for Hamilton County. They help raise money for the Survivors Program, which is used for live saving medical care for the animals. HSHC is an open admission no kill shelter. They are considered one of the top animal shelters in the country.

The Dog and Cat are both digi stamps from Mo’s Digital Pencil.

On the Dog card I added a metal bee over the drawn digi bee. I also cut out a bone shape dog tag on my Circut and the tennis ball is from another stamp set. I watercolored the images.

On the Cat card I added a gem to the collar and stamped the mouse. This card is also watercolored.

I welcome everyone to check out the animal shelter I volunteer and make cards for.

Sailor Man I am what I am

I remember watching old Popeye cartoons when I was little. This sailor man is a digi stamp by Mo’s Digital Pencil I paired it with a sentement that Popeye used to say.

I used Ranger Distress Inks with a waterbrush to color him in. Used a stencil from Stampers Anonymous – Tim Holtz for the background. Found a old Popeye cartoon strip for cardbase background.

I wuv you

As you might have noticed I’m a sicker for dog stamps. This little guy is a digi stamp from Mo’s Digital Pencil . They have some many cute digital stamps. I think I got 4 or 5 and will be back for more.

I pulled out my inks, watercolors and water brush for this card. Then created a small dog tag on my Cricut. I think the tag took almost as long to make as coloring inthe puppy. I couldn’t decide on what color it should be, I went with the silver.

Here is just about everything I needed to make the card. There is Wink of Stella on the eyes but it didnt pick up in the photo but it really made the eyes come to life.

As most of my animal themed cards this will be headed to the Humane Society of Hamilton County to help support this No – Kill shelter that does such wonderful work.

Zombie Girl

I’m digging this digi stamp by Vera Lane Studio. So many cute digi stamps in their Etsy shop.

I took out my watercolors, Prismacolor pencils & sharpie to color in my Zombie girl. I added two buttons and with black thread stitched around her eyeball. For the background I used a Kindred Stamp Stencil with Ranger ink. Found a pun for my sentiment.

Elvis All shook up

When I picked up Sizzix thinlit Zombie by Tim Holtz I thought he looked like Elvis Presley, maybe I’m the only one who sees it?

The die set is easy to put together but I chose to add more.

I ended up using 6 of Rangers Distress Inks by Tim Holtz.

Finished off my homemade envelope with this cute stamp by Stampingbella

Christmas in July

It may be 95 outside but its time to get ready for Christmas. This was a easy card to make so it would be perfect if you have lots of cards to send out. These 3 cute snowman are from Anthony’s Paper Craft – Snowman Trio. They are very easy to color in. I used watercolors but you could use inks, pencil, marker…

I always have lots of scrap card stock, I dug threw and found 2 that would work. Die cut 3 ovals. Finished with a button and some gems.

Those christmas charms can be found on Anthony’s site too.

Bright idea – Everyday card

Mashed up two of my favorite things: Sizzix & Goodwill finds. I’ve always loved the Sizzix Tim Holtz dies. I’ve always loved using old games in my cards. So used them both on this card.

This is the Sizzix Bigz Filament dies by Tim Holtz. The Electric Company Deed card is from a Monopoly game.

15th of the month it’s time for a Anthony’s Paper Craft design team blog hop. Earlier in the month I used a stamp out of the same set: June is Pride month and July 4th is coming up so I wanted to tie the two together. It’s been hard to see the good in the United States in the past 6 years or so but I still believe we are a place that Welcomes Everyone.

The house is from Anthony’s Paper Craft Village set 2

Don’t Worry Be Happy

I’ve had this cute bird stamp from Rubberneckers for a few months been trying to decide what I’d do with him. To me he looks like he should be on some sunny Island, that made me think of the 80’s song Don’t Worry Be Happy.

This is a 5 1/2 by 7″ card. I found the sheet music and distressed with Ranger Distress Oxide by Tim Holtz. Then watercolored the Bird which is by Rubberneckers. The foliage is from a stamp set by Pink Ink Designs – Toucan

Inside I kept it simple with just a small foilage stamp and to be extra I lined my homemade envelope with the song lyrics.

Oz House Drop

This stamp set is by Anthony”s Paper Craft – Crooked Village – Village Set 2. I think these Crooked Village sets are awesome. For todays card I really stepped out of the box and decided to do a card inspired by the Wizard of Oz, I thought the top stamp looked like a old farm house.

This card is 5 1/2 by 7. so you can tell this is a nice sized stamp. I used watercolors to color the house then zussy cut. I attached a action Wobbler to prop up the house and give it movement. Then I stenciled the tornado with Ranger Ink.
