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. 😉 If you would like something custom made just contact me and we will see what we can do!

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. 😉

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).

FREE shipping

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

3 Different Coloring Techniques! Check these out!!

Whoa! Stampin’ Up! has put together some great (and quick) videos on some fab coloring techniques. I have to say that this is going to help me get over (at least a little bit) the fact that the Blendabilities are not available right now. Are you feeling lost without your Blendabilities? I know that I have feeling a bit stuck without mine. I was still using mine this past week and what do you know…I have already discovered that 2 more of my markers had dried out. Stampin’ Up! made the right call to pull these from distribution.

Check out these videos for yourself (seriously, each video is under 2 minutes!):
