This is the banner for my daughter’s pizza birthday party.

Details

Size:  Each panel is 4.25 x 5.5”

Extra Details:  I cut each panel from a variety of colored cardstock. Each panel was dry embossed with a Darice star embossing folder. All of the letters were cut out of black cardstock on my Cricut machine. After adhering each letter to a panel, I added a pizza image to keep with the theme. My daughter colored all the pizzas using colored pencils.

Size:  pillow box using the We R Memory Keepers Pillow Box Board

Extra Details:  I cut both tag shaped out of a variety of card stocks. I dry embossed all the large tags with a Darice Star embossing folder. I stamped the sentiment on the smaller tags. The ink color depended on the color of the tag. Then, I layered one large tag, one small tag, and one hole reinforcer and tied them around the pillow boxed. I used whatever ribbon or twine I could find in my house. I added a pizza slice as a finishing touch. My daughter colored all the pizzas using colored pencils.

Pizza Party Thank You Cards

January 27, 2016

When I updated my blog in February 2016, I lost all the posting I had already done. I am doing my best to put the posts back up but I do not remember all the details for each card.  Unfortunately, the details for this project may be a bit scarce.

My daughter is having a “Make Your Own Pizza” Party at our local pizzeria for her birthday. Each child will get to make and eat their own pizza while at the party.

These are the Thank You cards that my daughter sent out after her party.

Details

Size:  Vertical side fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I had a lot of odd shaped pieces of card stock left over from making the pillow boxes for the favors and other party decorations that I wanted to use. The actual card base is 4.5 x 5”. I added the dry embossed colored card stock to bottom edge to bring it to a standard A2 size card. I used a Darice Stars embossing folder on the colored pieces. I added a white panel to the front of the card with the stamped sentiment and large pizza. There is also a white panel on the inside that my daughter used to write her thank you message on. Lastly, we added a slice of pizza to the card front with some foam squares.

I actually colored this card with my kiddos’ Crayola markers. My daughter colored some of the Thank You cards but not this one.

Pizza Party Game

January 27, 2016

When I updated my blog in February 2016, I lost all the posting I had already done. I am doing my best to put the posts back up but I do not remember all the details for each card.  Unfortunately, the details for this project may be a bit scarce.

My daughter is having a “Make Your Own Pizza” Party at our local pizzeria for her birthday. Each child will get to make and eat their own pizza while at the party. We needed something for the kids to do while waiting for the pizza’s to cook. I made a Pin the Topping on the Pizza Game.

26256906270_9c9f184e93_o

The kids and I drew a large circle on some poster board, added the crust line and colored the whole thing with crayons. It kept the kiddos busy for quite a while. Lastly, I had the whole thing laminated so that we could easily remove the “toppings.”

The “toppings” were cut from colored cardstock using Lawn Fawn’s Pizza My Heart and Tag You’re It Dies. I only made olives and pepperoni because they were the easiest and the birthday girl’s favorites. I used masking tape to have the toppings stick to the big pizza.

I also made an eye mask with a scrap of the apron material and some elastic.

Hope you enjoyed.

Merry Christmouse Card

When I updated my blog in February 2016, I lost all the posting I had already done. I am doing my best to put the posts back up but I do not remember all the details for each card.  Unfortunately, the details for this card may be a bit scarce.

This was one of the few Christmas cards I made this year. We typically send out a picture card of the kiddos. But with so many cute stamp sets, I did make a few cards also.

Extra Details:  I started by laying out where I wanted the garland to go. Then, I stamped the stockings, masked those off and added the cheese. I stamped the garland next. I added the sentiment. I drew the rest of the scene after that. I colored everything in with colored pencils. Lastly, I added a few red gemstones for fun.

This was a birthday card for my grandmother. I tried to use as many birthday images as I could for this card.

Details

Size:  Horizontal top fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I stamped all the images using a ruler as a guide. I colored all the images with Crayola markers and added some grey to the outside to make the images pop. I stamped the sentiment on an orange strip of paper because I messed up the stamping on the card base.

When I updated my blog in February 2016, I lost all the posting I had already done. I am doing my best to put the posts back up but I do not remember all the details for each card.  Unfortunately, the details for this project may be a bit scarce.

I had just bought Lawn Fawn’s Partly Cloudy stamp set and wanted to play with it. This is the card I created

Details

Size:  Vertical side fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I started with a white panel slightly smaller than a standard A2 sized card. I stamped the umbrella and sentiment first. I covered them with mask made from a post it note. I stamped the sun and clouds next. I used some first and second generation stamping to get lots of dimension in the clouds. After the clouds were finished, I stamped the rain drops. I also used first and second generation stamping to create dimension here. I used an ink dauber to add color near the sun. Lastly, I adhered the stamped panel to a black card base.

Stamps Used: Lawn Fawn’s Partly Cloudy, Sunny Skies, and Starry Backdrop

Circle Fruity Thanks

I love the fruit images in the Summertime Charm stamp set, so I made a card featuring them. I also tried the rock n roll technique to get two colors in one stamped image.

Details

Size:  Vertical side fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I started by stamping the sentiment on white card stock. I stamped the fruit images in a circular shape around the sentiment and worked my way out to the edge of the panel. I used an ink pad to color the edges of my white panel. I put the stamped panel on a black card base.

Punny Pull Tab Card

August 5, 2015

When I updated my blog in February 2016, I lost all the posting I had already done. I am doing my best to put the posts back up but I do not remember all the details for each card.  Unfortunately, the details for this project may be a bit scarce.

My mother in law gave me two new stamp sets and some Distress Inks for my birthday. She is the greatest, so I needed make her an awesome thank you card. I also wanted to try making an interactive card. It was my first attempt so it’s not very pretty. At this point, I also did not own a die cutting machine or any dies so everything was hand cut or cut with my very old paper trimmer.

Details

Extra Details:  I ink blended the top white panel after cutting the circle out. I stamped the sentiments right about the circles. I created the white pull tabs and stamped the images and sentiments where they could be seen. I colored everything with colored pencils. I added fun foam where I needed it to make the card work. I adhered the interactive portion to a brown card base that I had stamped some tone on tone hearts on for added interest.

For my birthday, I received some mini Distress Ink cubes. I could wait to play with them. This card I created using direct to paper stamping with the ink pads themselves.

Size:  Horizontal side fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I scored a grid on my white card panel. I used this grid to help me stamp my ink pads into a neat pattern. After I applied the Distress ink squares I added cute faces using a number of different Lawn Fawn stamp sets. I added a sentiment in one of the open squares. Lastly, I adhered the panel to a light brown card base.
