I have to say that I am blessed beyond my dreams with a beautiful family and out little grands. I want to create unique and personal cards for all of them. Here are a few of them, although I may not remember all the items used, I will try to add the main things. paper I this hear I focused on the child’s name. I used Altenew’s alphabet die set. I’ve actually gotten a lot of use from this set. This card is simply done with pretty paper I purchased many years ago. I have to admit that I’m a bit of a hoarder and it has been hard for me to use things that I might not be able to find again. I used to sing You Are My Sunshine to my children and so I had to get this die from Simon Says Stamp’s. I made a gate fold card with slider to close where I cut two circles, one with scallops to mimic the sun. next comes The boys! Time to have a little creative fun with colorful monsters. I love the stencil from Gina K. Happy die, Distress inks from Tim holtz, and stamps from Nicole Tamarin. here’s Spider-Man with Tim holtz spider web die and heart die cut in half for the eyes. Usted Distress inks. Here’s a few random cards as well. I typically create cards for my stash that don’t necessarily have a sentiment on the front and then will customize based on the current need. I liked this die from Catherine Pooler “KIND” and ordered the stamp set to coordinate. you can see I paired it with stamps from Visible Image – which has become one of my favorites. And Altenew for the inside sentiment. last but not least, a masculine card using Tim Holtz stamps, Distress inks, wood grain
Impression die and Bigz dies.
Well, I think I’ll save the rest for another post. Hope this gives you some ideas and you have fun creating.
