2020 November - December

This is a lifted idea from my one of my favorite crafters, My Pink Stamper, made for a great niece turning 13.

I follow several blogs and a request was put out for a special young lad for his birthday, so I created this card to send to him.

Another Stampin up inspired card for my Brother-in-law and his wife's anniversary.

Thanksgiving cards made for Grandkids and friends. All in Design Space with embossing folders and gems. 

Verse below was in both cards above for Grandkids.

I created this for my BIL's birthday.  It is a Stampin Up lifted creation.

Made this Stampin Up inspired card a great niece.

Granddaughter turns 6 mid December and loves Frozen, so I created this care in Design Space with some print and cut, double in raised areas and some Dollar Tree stickers.

Dear friend's birthday is on Christmas, I try to send her a non-Christmas related card (in additional to Christmas card).  She lives in a cabin looking house on a river.  Stampin Up image and text, embossing folder turned two directions for pine springs.

Nephew's birthday is at end of December, always struggle with male cards but this Stampin Up image seems appreciate, knowing him.

Great-niece birthday at end of December, created this kit card from Inspiration Station in Ovid with my own spin on it.

Dear friend lost her grandmother in mid November, created this card with help from ideas on Pinterest.  Very simple embossing and gems.

I made this sympathy cards just to have on hand.  I ended up coloring the leaves green before putting in the card box.

I make floating photo ornaments yearly for various family members, here is this years.

Below are cards that open up to hold a chapstick that I wrapped money around.

A Great Niece is getting married in May of 2021 and my tradition for each of them is to personalize casserole dishes as gifts.

2020 September-October Cards

My first time buying unbranded dies was this bottles set (similar to Stampin Up Bubble Over).  They are not the same exact size and not nearly as nice, but I had to try once.  I created this card for our Nephew.

Long time co-worker is retiring so I created this card with Stampin Up stamps and punch, circle and ovals are dies.  I then found out he doesn't golf so it's going in my stash.

Another former co-worker is having a difficult time, I saw a similar layout on another page and created this with the dragonfly theme (her daughter's favorite).

This is my first slimline card I made for my sister in laws  94 yr old parents.  Stampin Up stamps, colored with pencils, shapes on cover is cut from Elegant Edges on Cricut, include circles are dies.

Used the same layout to create a card for a co-worker.

I created this Z-Fold card for a dear friend and former boss. 

I started new tradition this year where I send a congratulations card for another month of school completed to each of my grandkids along with a little gift (mostly clothes).  For October I made the cards of their favorite heros. I found the files in Cricut Design Space, downloaded and did as print then cut. For Wonder Woman and cut two additional layers and adhered with dimensionals to add depth.  For Black Panther I did the same but staggered to to make it look like it is moving.

Our first great-great nephew is turning 2, he loves farm equipment so I had to design something with a tractor.  I found this fabulous paper then found a tractor in Cricut DS that matches pretty good.  I originally wanted the tractor on an action wobble but didn't have a small enough one to work.

Great-great niece turns 4, found this inspired card off Pinterest.  All cricut cuts, draw and stickers I had in my stash.

Niece's card, my first attempt at the barn door card, I like how it turned out.  Stamps and dies are all Stampin' Up.  Used corner punch I had for sentiment inside and a die for the Happy Birthday.

I made this card for my husband and I's anniversary.

Doing Halloween cards are new to me this year.  I made these for my grandkids, sister, mom and friend.

I used the same inside for both.

These below are my first try at napkin cards, the second one I like much better and feel more comfortable with the process.

The card below is a Stampin Up stamp cut out with Cricut and hand colored.  The background is Stampin Up stencil.
