DT card for QKR Stampede challenge #244 - ATG: option- Things with Wings

The challenge this week at QKR Stampede is the usual Anything Goes.  The option this week is "Things with Wings".  You may enter up to 3 times by 6 p.m. Thursday, May 24.  If you are a winner you might be the owner of this snazzy gal, or one of the other great QKR digis.  You may win even more images if you use a QKR stamp.  This image is called "Looking Pretty" - guess that depends on your point of view!  I dressed her up in pink, and used scraps of DP, Spellbinder dies, an embossing folder and gems to complete the look.  The top layer of each flower uses the corresponding DP.  It does not show on the screen, but I used a new-to-me product to enhance the flowers and the lady's feathery parts.  I need to explain... at a yard sale, I purchased a jar of what I thought was silver glitter.  When I opened the jar, it was a silvery paint - rather thin and full of glitter.  It is called Glitter Specialty finish by Martha Living.  I used a fine paint brush to cover the selected parts, and I really like the result IRL.  Bonus - it dries very quickly.   Anyone familiar with this product - do you know how it is meant to be used?

Graduating Bear - QKR Anything Goes Challenge 243 - DT card

This week the Anything Goes challenge at QKR Stampede has the option of Graduation.  Some years I have had quite a few graduation cards to send - not so many this year.  I think there is a relative graduating from the U. of Minn. so I used dark burgundy and gold for that school.  The image is Graduating Bear, from the QKR Stampede digi store - colored with an aqua pen and water color pencils.  I used a piece of DP for the sentiment, and backed those pieces with black cs.  The background DP is from a pad called Heirloom by DCWV.  A touch of black ribbon, gold mesh, and gold gems complete the card. (Tic-tac-toe /diagonal/ ribbon, bling, colored pemcils.)

Leah's Graduation

 A few days ago I posted the card I made for our grandson.  His sister also graduates this year - in fact, in a couple of days - so this card is already in the mail. 
The folded card is 4.25x6.5.  I added another fold to be able to include more images. 
Bottom view:open card - embossed bg, her name and school (logo from the website); panel 2 - she has a job as assistant manager in charge of training on American Cruise line ships - she will be doing a lot of traveling!  Main panel - Dearie Doll graduate, and a special verse;  right panel - embossed bg with a strip from DP (believe in your Dreams) and a key sticker.
Folds:  I started with a piece of cs 11x6.5.  I made one valley fold at the right of about 2 in.  I then folded from the left so the edge met the score line at the right.  I then made a fold dividing this left panel in half.  View 2 shows this left panel folded back, and view 3 shows the left panel open.  Besides providing space for more images, this card can easily stand for display.  I also dug into my photo boxes and made a little brag book of photos from years past.   This  is a good way to give young people pictures they may not own themselves - and often provides a
smile or two!

QKR Stampede Challenge #242 - Anything goes: Option - feminine (Mother's Day)

This week the Anything Goes challenge at QKR Stampede has the option of doing a feminine/Mother's Day card.  My mother passed away a few years ago, but I made a card suitable for any one who has had a great influence,  You may enter the QKR Stampede challenge up to 3 times through 6 pm EDT on Thursday.  Win this digi or another from their store!  This is called tulips and Pansies.    I colored with Prismas, and fussy cut the image to mount it on a deep purple mat dry embossed with Swiss Dots.  I added a strip of lace and a bit of glittery lacy fabric for some glitz.

Some cheer for Anthony

Some of you may have seen previous posts for the SplitCoastStampers Tuesday TeaPot party. Our cards may be sent to a recipient in need of cheer.  I have not been a regular participant of late, but this week I wanted to be sure to join in.  The cards go to Anthony, a 16 yer old undergoing his second heart surgery.  Side effects have caused him to lose his voice and have difficulty swallowing.  I have "known" his mother for some time through SCS. We sent cards a couple of years ago, and she said he has kept them in a memory box - I think all cardmakers are happy to know that their cards really do make an impact.   One of Anthony's interests is basketball.  I am pleased to have a chance to use some of the materials left from when our granddaughter played HS basketball! The basket is a Brad Buddy from Hot off the Press.  The sentiment is from QKR Stampede, and that backing strip is duct tape. 
Here is a link to the TeaPot party.  You are more than welcome to join us!

Graduation, Hal

              Two of our grandkids graduate this month.      They are brother and sister - fortunately, the ceremonies are a week apart - easier for the parents!  Unfortunately, hubbys severe back pain is preventing any travel, so we will miss the big events.
I recently saw an example of what I call a double fold card - I am sure it has a name.  Both the designer and name of the card escape me, but I wanted to try it.  I think it makes for a great special occasion card and also one that allows a few extra elements - when I do graduation cards I like t include some pertinent images!  In this case - the name, the year, a college logo   - this is the Jayhawk from the Univ. of Kansas for those not from around here!  Hal has been accepted at a vet school - hence the vet (dearie Dolls) and a scientific (!) magnifying glass sticker.  I added  a bit of Designer paper with   appropriate words, and a computer generated verse.  The almost invisible graduate is from Dearie Dolls.
This was put in the mail earlier today, and I have no other photos of the process.  The base started as 4.5x11.  At the right, I made a mountain fold at about 1.75.  I then folded from the left, to meet the fold line at the right.  the left hand section was then folded at the half way point with a mountain fold. (The section with the vet and magnifying glass fold under the section with his name (left photo)  When closed, it covers half of the inner part.  the embossed panel folds back and is behind the main panel when closed)  The advantage is that it stands easily as a display card - and looks a bit more impressive than a regular card.  Sorry I am not good at directions or photos..

Hello, Art and Mary

I am sending this to friends who recently moved to a retirement community in another city.  We often had coffee together at church, so I thought this was appropriate to send as a "miss you" card.  The images are from a freebie set from Verve.  Most of the coloring is with regular markers - a change for me as I usually use Prismas or gel pens.  The die cut is part of a flourish by Die-namics.  I snipped bits to use as "steam" from the cups.  The words are the top layer of a napkin.  I did not do anything but attach it with glue.

Sympathy - in memory of Laverne

We just heard that our friend Laverne has lost her struggle with cancer.  She has lived a long, full life and we are thankful to know she will spend eternity with her Lord.  Nevertheless, it is difficult for her husband.  Laverne regularly attended a Bible class, and often played the piano for services - so the items on the card reflect her life.  The image is from Sweet 'n Sassy, and the papers are from my stash. The circle dies are by Spellbinder,

Sympathy #1

I am making a series of sympathy cards using this tree from "Lovely as a Tree" by Stampin' Up.  It is an older set but a favorite.  Since these cards all go to guys in their 50s, and who live in in a wooded area, I thought this would be appropriate.  The bg is dry embossed with Cuttlebug's vine folder. The sentiment is by Paper Inspirations.

Snippets Window

I recently won a nice prize from the Snippets Playground challenge - this window die by Die-namics, and this cat stamp by Paper Xtra.  I wanted to use both, and thought this sketch would work, but I think in retrospect the kitty is a bit too large.  Oh, well - I usually post just about everything I make, so it will have to do!  I used the wood grain embossing and a bit of a branch also by Die-namics.   I added some punched rose butterflies.
I think I outdid myself with snippets!  The cat is stamped on the piece from the window.  I found a bit of the tree DP that just fit, and used scraps for both the rose and blue embellishments. I think I actually used up a scrap or two.

HB, Ethan

This Dearie Doll colored digi is great for our grandson - he is in his mid 20's - loves dogs and the outdoors, including fishing.  This is not the right kind of dog, but the idea is there!  I used some DP I hae had for a long time.  The sentiment is by TAWS, and I had a chance to use my doggie bone
punch!  This is a bit of a stretch for the Things that hop challenge - but have you seen your fishing rod and line when there is a fish - it really hops!

HB, Dale

I used this clipart image a while ago, and realized it would be perfect for our friend.  He and I have birthdays within a few days of each other, and we just celebrated a few days ago.  They are snowbirds and headed for their summer place in Colorado. So he already has the card, and he enjoyed it even more than I  expected!  Unless you are Nebraska fans, you probably do not realize that Herbie Husker is a mascot of the football Cornhuskers.  With a nickname like that, and the ear of corn you can see, this must meet the farm theme of the Creative Corner challenge!

Margarita Monday

We had a small family reunion at our house last week.  I was asked to make a card featuring a margarita card.  I found a great set by googling clip art - but I cannot find it now!  I used a scrap of pattern paper to continue the theme, and added stickles to the salt on the glass.
The end of the sentiment (inside) says..."especially when the salt accompanies a drink and good friends!"

QKR Stampede challenge ~` anything goes/optional - Easter

The weekly "Anything Goes" challenge #238 at QKR Stampede features the optional twist of  "Easter".  This quote, from the Eureka branch of QKR, relates the true meaning of Easter.  I added the image of the open tomb also a digi from Eureka.  You may enter the challenge up to 3 times, and you may win digital images.  If you use an image from the company, and win, your prize is greater.  I used a piece of DP from the Faith collection by Paper Studio.  The strip at the bottom is covered with a piece of netting from my stash - I think it may have been part of a produce bag. (It is beige - a nice contrast to the usual bright red!)   I tore the edges of the bg paper, and used Spellbinder dies for the circle and oval.

This week hubby and I had a chance to make the 60 mile jaunt to Gila Bend, AZ.  Our granddaughter is spending the week at an Air Force Facility there.  She is a member of the Wings of Green of the US Air Force Academy.  The Wings of Blue (Juniors and Seniors) were there also.  All were hoping to get in a lot of practice parachute jumps - I fear it was a bit too windy to do as much as they wanted.  We watched her do jump #69 and 70.  Here are photos with her grandfather; packing her 'chute; practicing the group maneuvers they will do before deploying the 'chute; loading the plane, and, finally, coming in for a landing.  Adrienne is on the demo team - she is hoping to be a part of the team that will drop into such events as major football games, etc.

DT card for QKR Stampede Challenge #237: Anything Goes/ Up, Up and Away

I thought this QKR Stampede image would work for the optional twist of Up, up and away.  He looks like he is ready to launch himself to new heights!  The sentiment is also from QKR Stampede.  We hope you will join us for this fun challenge.  Remember, the theme is optional.  You may submit up to 3 entries before 3 p.m. EDT Thursday, April 6.  The winner rceives QKR Stampede digis - more if you are a winner using QKR Stampede images.  Go here for complete details.  I highlighted the "bee" - pun intended!  The papers are all from my stash.  The longer strip comprises 3 strips of narrow Washi tape, mounted on white cs.  A bit of yellow ribbon and acrylic dots complete the card.

Strong Coffee

These images are part of a great freebie set from Verve - a great help for me as I do not have many stamps relating to coffee.  This is a great sentiment!  I colored the cup with Prisma coors.  DP is by Lily of the Valley, and the strips are Washi tape mounted on a layer of white cs..  The circles are dies by Spellbinder, as is the scalloped rectangle.  The original rectangle was too wide, so I made a second cut, by sliding the cs over a couple of scallops, then cutting.

Spring is in the air - QKR Stampede DT challenge #236

These hungry babies are a sure sign of spring, and I thought their nest in a mailbox is a good illustration for this inspirational sentiment.  Both are from the QKR Stampede digi store.  This week their challenge is again Anything Goes, with the option of "spring is in the air".  You have until 6 p.m. EDT Thursday March 30 to add up to 3 entries.  Winners receive digis from QKR Stampede - more if you use their stamps.  I cut the sentiment into 3 sections, and opted to deliberately cut unevenly. For the red cs mats and the punch I used scraps, as well as some of the last bit of braid.

Herbie Husker for MMTPT

This week the Teapot Tuesday challenge at SplitCoastStampers is to make (and send, if desired) a card for a 10 year old boy whose fight with cancer is not going well. I am running a week behind, but I could not resist making a card befitting his position as a Nebraska Cornhusker fan, even though he lives in TX.  Bensarmom at SCS reminded me that clip art is an available option.  So I found Harry Husker and the Go Big Red slogan on line.  Easy for me, as I am also a great Husker fan!
