For the boys…

Hi everyone, Laurel here with a boy themed card.  I have 2 grown girls and a 3 year old grand daughter so I don’t use a lot of boy cards.  But I do give cards to the students in my grade one class thus boy cards are needed sometimes.

Now what little boy wouldn’t love a card with a little robot on it?!   I have used the Best Bots stamp and die set along with the Robots pattern paper.

I wanted it to look like the little robot was being carried away by the balloons (from the Best Bots die).  I have also mounted him on foam squares for dimension.

To create the sentiment.  I taped off part of the sentiment from the Best Bots stamp set and cut it apart.  I inserted the Birthday word from the Birthday die.

Now… once again, being that it is Saturday… I have a sketch up on my blog for this card.  Come play along!

Pattern Paper: Robots

Stamp: Best Bots

How to create a Mother’s Day card with a 3 year old

Hi everyone, I have a quick card to share with you today.  I babysit my 3 year old grand daughter on the weekends so we sometimes get crafty.  The papers in the Rainbows collection are so pretty, I decided we could make a card for her mommy.

I let her choose the papers, she chose the purple hearts because her mom’s favorite color is purple 🙂  Anyways, I decided to then let her have a part in the process so I added the heart paper from the Color Me collection

I then had her help me stamp and die cut the hearts from the All Heart set.  I added a face from the Suntiments set to one of the hearts.   The ‘mom’ is from the We Are Family stamp set.

Now I just added the hearts onto the card with glue dots for the photo.  Shortly after this I removed the hearts and let my grand daughter color the background paper and the stamped heart (the mom is adhered with glue dots as well) – she loves to color and couldn’t wait to do so! I then reassembled it and now we are ready for Mother’s day.  So needless to say, the card doesn’t look like this anymore 😉  but she loves it and is proud of it.

That’s it for me today.  Have a great day.

New month, new sketch….come play along

Hi everyone, Laurel here with another sketch challenge for you.  Don’t forget you have all month to play along and there is a prize up for grabs to one lucky participant!

Here is what I came up with:

Isn’t the sun from the Suntiments so cute?  I stamped the image then used the corresponding die to cut it out.   The cloud was die cut using the Colorful Day Die.

I then thought the little bee from the Mini Bee stamp set would look cute flying by.  I stamped cut it out and mounted it and the sun on foam squares.

I added the die cut word Happy using the Happy Word Die.

So that is my interpretation of the sketch, would love to see what you do with it!

Bday Bash Shaker Birthday Card

Hi everyone, Laurel here again.  I don’t know about you, but the funny thing is… I hardly ever make birthday cards! I go in spurts, but for the most part they are not ones I usually make.

I do like to give birthday cards to the students in my class (I teach grade one), thus I am working on building my stash… the Pattern Happy stamps and papers are so perfect for kids birthday cards!

I am sharing a girl themed card – little girls often like pink, purple and sparkly.  So what little girl would love this card, complete with shaker – which I seem to be on a kick of lately too 😉

I kept it pretty simple really – have you seen how 6 or 7 year olds put things into their backpacks? LOL

I used a mixture of papers from the Geofetti, Rainbows and Color Me papers – love how they are so easy to mix and match.

I die cut the birthday using the Birthday Word die then stapled it on.

I paper pieced the cupcake from the Bday Bash stamp set and mounted it on foam squares.   Finally, I die cut a sentiment from the set using the Mini Containers.

Thanks for visiting…. and oh… if you like the sketch of this card… check out my Sketchy Saturday post… come play along!

 

 

A couple of bright happy cards

Hi everyone, Laurel here today with a couple of fun cards.  I run a sketch challenge on my blog every Saturday and both of these cards are different takes on this week’s sketch.  Hop on over to my blog to see the sketch.

First off, with all the rain we have been having this spring… I just had to play with the Rainbows paper pad  , Colorful Day stamp set and Colorful Day Die.

I made the clouds into shakers which is easy when you use Adhesive Foam sheets and die cut the shape with that.

I then went for a different look.  I used the black confetti paper from the Geofetti  collection and went with a birthday card.   I then added a strip of grid paper from the Color Me Happy collection.

I seem to be on a shaker card kick as of late…. I think it is my ever growing supply of sequins and my barely ever using them that is making me do it.

Anyways the paper in the Rainbows collection worked well for lemons don’t you think?  I then stamped one of them with the Bday Bash stamp set.

That’s it for me today. Thanks for stopping by. If you want to see the sketch, head on over to my blog.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

First of the Month Super Sketch

Hi everyone, Laurel here.  Guess what?  Do you love sketches as much as I do?  Well…. we will be hosting a monthly sketch challenge right here on this blog.  Yep, a new sketch on the first of each month.

We would love for you to play along, now Pattern Happy products don’t have to be used, but we sure would be happy to see them.

Fun hey?

Here is what I created with the sketch.  I used the Rainbows paper pad along with a cut file – did you know we have cut files?! Yep, this one is the Sweet Sun cut file.  I used it to create a shaker box.

For the ‘hello’ sentiment I have used the Mini Greetings stamp set along with the Mini Containers die.
