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.


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


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.



2020 August Cards

I purchased a class kit from one of my favorite SU representatives, MyPinkStamper, I didn't not have the stamp, nor dies, but was able to recreate similar cards via some download files and changing them into SVGs and Cricut cuts I found.  I love how they turned out.

This one was from the same class kit, the flower is one of my daughter's favorites. 


My sister's step daughter graduated from Eaton Rapids High School in May, her open house is in August so I created this card using her school colors.





 This is another card from the card kit.  Loved the challenge in finding images in Cricut DS to recreate. 


The cupcake background card is for a great niece who is also a chef.  Sister in law is also celebrating her birthday in August.  I tried out a Cricut Joy file using Explorer machine.  It is a learning curve to say the least.  Since I ended up with two cuts, I adapted to the cards to what I needed.  I used the same sentiment on the inside of both cards.


A great-great niece was born this month, made this card to welcome her in the world.

2020 July Cards

Took a fabulous class with My Pink Stamper and made these next four card that I love to have on hand for when needed.




Nephew who golfs is celebrating his birthday, designed this card using Lawn Fawn slider die so golf ball rolls into hole.  Words were written with Cricut as well as cuts done with Cricut. 

Twin niece and nephew celebrating 11th birthday. 


Great niece is expecting first child, a girl so I made this using new Cricut Joy file, stamped BABY using Close to My Heart Stamps and punched out.  Inside sentiment is also Close to My Heart Stamp and used dies to cut out. 


A great niece is graduating, so I this is my first try at a fun fold card.  Didn't end up the way I was intended but I'm satisfied with it. 


My best friend's birthday is the 5th.  Used two different Stampin Up Bundles (Bike Ride & Farmhouse Christmas) along with Ballon Nesting dies and Studio G stamp.

2020 May - June Cards

One of our great niece is expecting this summer, so I modified a card I received from my Stampin' Up person to give at her shower.

Make this voilet Mother's Day card for my daughter who is currently at home with two children while our SIL is deployed. I purchased the SVG file from Lori Whitlock.com.  Will use again for a birthday.


For my mom's birthday I did the sentiments in Word and printed on card stock and cut our.  I fussy cut the flowers out of the background paper.



For my hubby's birthday card I did sentiments in Word then cut out using dies.



I made two of these cards with embossing folder and dies with sentiment print and cut out of Word.  One is for my brother with the other for my son in law who both ride motorcycles.


Dear friend is celebrating her 75th birthday.  Stampin Up stamps.

Cousin's birthday card, die is from UK and since I didn't have the stamp I had to get creative on marking up the bird.  


My newly found brother's son graduated from Eaton Rapids High School, this is the card I created.  Some precut dies shapes used along with Cricut cuts and downloaded images.



A blog I follow highlighted a young man graduating from Fond Du Loc High School in Wisconsin with some family life challenges beyond the Covid lock down.  I made this card for him after researching the school colors.
