SAS4Kids Challenge with guest cardmaker

I have a couple more cards to share from one of our SAS4Kids cardmakers:)  Once again, I will show you two cards from Nanci S. from Rotonda West, FL.  Nanci makes really wonderful cards! 🙂

 

IMG_4928aLook at this great card for a boy…..or a girl who likes hockey;)  I’m going to enter this card into the Challenge blog over at Send A Smile 4 Kids:) The current challenge is For The Boys, and Nanci’s card fits the bill:)  It’s also made with Stampin’ Up! papers:)  This is a wonderful card for a boy, great layout and coloring!  Sure to please any young person:)

 

aHalf-fold Card5How cute is this single stamp from Stampin’ Up!, Kind Koala?!  Super easy with the stamp , some Stampin’ Up! paper, and Stampin’ Write Markers!  This card would be good for a boy or a girl:)  I love how she used a marker to draw a border around the main image! 🙂

I’ve posted on my other blog today as well, so I think it’s off to bed for me!  It’s been a really long day!

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed the cards:)  Hope to see you soon! 🙂

SAS4Kids guest card maker

I know, it’s been a while, I have been so busy!  I don’t even have a card I made today.  I do have a card made by a wonderful person who’s making cards for Send A Smile 4 Kids! 🙂  Her name is Nanci Simmons, and she is a really sweet person and a very good card maker! 🙂

I have been collecting cards for Send A Smile 4 Kids and I take them to the hospital for the kids:)  Nanci sent me a batch of cards that I thought were so cute, and made with Stampin’ Up! products, that I asked if I could share some on my blog.  She said I could so I will be sharing a number of them over the next week for you all to enjoy:)

I have two for you today:

 

Half-fold Card1 Half-fold Card2You can see these are both very much alike, yet different:)  I love the DSP and the ribbons.  The ribbons and the central image set them apart.  I think the one on top would be good for a girl, and the bottom one would be good for a boy.  Just my opinion, who knows what the hospital will think;)

I think Nanci has done a great job of making cards for the kids, I hope you enjoy them too! 🙂

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you’ll come again:)  I also have a second blog that you can visit HERE.  I actually have more cards over there so take a look:)

Finally, a card! :)

OMGoodness, this was a terrible week to try and make cards!  The grandkids had two weeks off school for the Christmas holiday and went to school for one day, and then they have been off for 3 days because the temp is below Zero! My little darlings love to help! lol  I’ll have some photos at the end:)

For this card, I will be sending to challenge #22 over at Always Playing With Paper. After that it will go into the pile of cards for Send A Smile 4 Kids.

All the supplies in this card are Stampin’ Up! unless noted. I’ll post all the supplies at the end, but ask if you have questions:) Here’s the sketch I used. Obviously, I didn’t use the color challenge;)

Challenge 22

 

Half-fold Card1

What do you think, will this be cute for a little girl?  I like to stick pretty close to the sketch samples.  Especially now, I haven’t made any “real” cards for over a year:( I’m almost frozen looking at all my papers and supplies.  I worked on this card for three days!  Ok, all the grandkids were here running around, but seriously, it feels like with the new year, everyone’s style changed, except mine:(

I did use a newer punch from Stampin’ Up! called Hearts Border Punch.  It made the four little hearts on top of the image.  I actually punched four hearts and three of them show the background.  The fourth heart, on the far left, I cut out of the paper and taped it to the hole so they would all be the same color.  For the hearts on the right, I used a small heart punch for the biggest heart and for the small hearts and the little dots, I used the Owl Builder Punch.

It never seems like a lot of supplies until you start writing it down!  I don’t like to retire my supplies, even though we’re supposed to.  You could use a current Stampin’ Up! image instead. I think the only thing on this card that is not Stampin’ Up! is the card base, it’s an extra heavy cardstock because I also send cards to Operation Write Home and the card bases need to be extra sturdy.

Ok, for those of you who have been asking, here are a couple of photos:)

Thanks for coming by today to have a look:)  I hope to get back onto a schedule very soon. I hope you stop by again:)

20150106_occasions_en-usI know, I am behind everyone who had their info up first thing this morning, and I don’t have a card today:(  I’m sorry:(  I’ve been unpacking boxes to find my craft supplies to make Valentine cards for Send A Smile 4 Kids.
