Handmade Religious Cards

Hello Stampers! Today I’m sharing a couple of religious celebration cards that I have created this past week.

Here is a hot pink (Melon Mambo) version that my aunt requested for a First Communion she is attending this weekend:

Here is the¬†boy version. Our sweet nephew has his First Communion tomorrow. The best part…these cards are money holders! Woo Hoo! A gift in an envelope and who doesn’t love that? Yes, even kids will love that!

This stamp set is actually retired. However, there is another stamp set in the current catalog, Blessed by God, that you could substitute and get some great results. The key for me on these cards was to keep it SIMPLE!

If you have questions about any projects I post I would love to hear them! Just leave them in the comment section!

PS>>If you are in need of a religious card you could check out my Etsy Shop. I have 2 other cards posted over there that have been popular. In fact, I just got an order for a girl (pink) one yesterday that I am about to complete and get into the mail today so, I better get moving. ūüėČ If you would like something custom made just contact me and we will see what we can do!

Celebrate Today, Important Dates + Design Inside of Cards

Welcome to Wednesday! I hope that your day is going well so far. :)

I have a card to share today that is a CASE (copy and share everything) from Pinterest. You can see Teneale’s card HERE. I changed up a few things because I didn’t have all of the same supplies as her original.

I had a sweet comment from a girl named April (Hi-April! :) ). She asked for some direction on how to keep the design flowing into the center of the card. I didn’t have too many resources for her to check out. As I was editing this card I realized that I had a little something to share with April (and the rest of you!). Here is the inside of this card:

One way to coordinate the inside of the card to the front is to stamp an image from the same set on the inside. If I am using a dark colored card stock for my card base I always add a light colored layer, usually Whisper White, like I did here. I stamped the solid balloon image and a few extras like the ribbon and balloon string. Of course, I added a sweet sentiment to the inside too. Petite Pairs is a great set for sentiments!

Another way to coordinate the inside to the outside is to use a strip of Designer Series Paper. If you used it on the outside then it’s a given to match on the inside! I hope this helps you see some new possibilities.

I also received a question from Lauren! She has some questions about retiring lists and the NEW Catalog dates. I actually just marked my calendar yesterday with all of these important dates!

Don’t Miss Out–Last Day! +My Son Gave Me a Challenge!

OOPS! I just found this card on my desk when I was cleaning up last night. It was tucked in with my papers! Worst part about that? My son asked me to make him an Easter card. It was the cutest thing…”Mom, will you make me a card?” Me: “Ummm, sure!” <he saw this cute puppy dog stamp sitting on my desk> Jacob: “Can you use this dog stamp, and umm, have a bunny on there holding a basket, and can the bunny be giving the dog an egg?” Me: “Wow, uhh, I will do my best, Jacob. :)

He didn’t see this Happy Easter Bunny Stamp that I have. :) I got to work and completed everything on his “Wish List”! However, I guess I failed when it came to delivering the final result to him! Let’s see what he says when he gets home from school today!

Same Layout Different Card! Happy Birthday!

1 crafts 2015-04-06 017

How about a bright birthday card for you today?! Welcome Spring showers and gray skies (with the occasional sunshine)! Here in St. Louis, Missouri we have had a few days of nasty weather with another night of threats expected this evening. I hope that your city has blue skies and singing birdies. :)

Remember this sweet baby card from earlier this week? Do you recognize the layout? Yes, it’s the same! Isn’t it crazy how different these are? My favorite of the two…I am not telling. :) You tell me what you think! Leave me a quick comment and I will let you know on my next post. :)

Are you still getting over the fact that the Blendabilities are not available right now? I still want to reach for mine but, some have already gone dry since being discontinued. I finally got out my blender pen and that is how I colored the cake image. To do that you just squeeze your ink pad, while closed, that will put ink on the inside of the lid. Now use that blender pen to pick up the ink and get to coloring. Clean your blender pen by making a few marks on a scrap paper then move on to your next color. Have fun!

I will say that I really do like how bright and fun this card is. It will be perfect for my niece that just turned 4! We are going skating this weekend to celebrate. Oh boy, actually we are celebrating my nephew’s 8th birthday too. I guess I better get to creating another card. ūüėČ

There is still time to get FREE SHIPPING on ANY size order! If you are placing an order under $150 please use the current Hostess Code (located in the right column of my site).

Have a great day! And, if you are experiencing this Springtime storm season-please stay safe tonight! ~Angie
