Today we have some free-for-all cards to share with you from our Card Designers.
”Hi” card, by Carina Lindholm.
I used the fun and cheerful Sand & surf collection on this card. I cut out a few strips in patterned paper and adhered them to my card base. Then I adhered the chipboard border, tape, and the big sticker flower. I made a cluster inside the flower with a crochet flower, button, hi sticker and bling. The leaves I stamped on green paper and cut out.
Sand & Surf: Surfs Up, GPS, Paradise, Just Write Journaling Stickers; Sophisticates: Miniatures Card Sentiments; Ciao Chip Elements: Borders; Button Market: Purple Flowers; Designer Tape: Pink Stripe
“You’re Sweet” card, by Carina Lindholm.
I just love using Bella designer tapes on my cards, they are just so much fun and easy to use. On this card I used a few different ones and placed in the centre of my card. I adhered the tapes by sewing with the sewing machine over them. I also sew a border around the edge of the card base.
Designers Tape: Punch Chevron, Polka Dot Combo, Gray Dot, Chlorine Dot; Birthday Girl: Birthday Girl 1; Crochet Hearts: Bell Pepper
“Play Hard” card, by Laurie Schmidlin.
Having three athletic sons, I find myself reaching for the Making the Team collection often! I combined several Making the Team elements (with a couple of borders from the Mr. Boy collection) to create this card for my teenage son. I cut out the football image (from the Cute Cuts) and layered on several Ciao Chip pieces. The photo corner and sentiment sticker are from the Alpha+Bits sticker sheet.
Making The Team: Basketball, Cute Cuts, Alpha+Bits Stickers, Ciao Chip Icons; Mr. Boy: Borders N' Blocks
“I Do” card, by Laurie Schmidlin.
With so many summer weddings coming up, I decided to start building my wedding card stash up. I used a cut file and my Silhouette Cameo combined with some Love And Marriage and Engaged At Last paper, embellishments, and Ciao Chip to create this gate fold card. I layered a neutral chevron paper on the inside and layered on some flower Cute Cuts. For the front, I adhered some Ciao Chip pieces and a bow with a Button Market Button to just one side (so the card can still open easily).
Love And Marriage: Cute Cuts, Ciao Chip Icons; Engaged At Last: Bachelorette Party; Button Market: Neutral Mix
Cupcake card, by Morgan Bandkowski.
I love all things pink and need more birthday cards so I decided to make some matching cards using the Kiss Me collection and the Baby Girl line. I always love the Sophisticates collection. It is great to add to any project I am working on. I used some of my own stamps and stickles to add a birthday sentiment. I love using my punches to add a little detail.
Kiss Me: True Love; Sophisticates: Sprinkles & Lace Punch
“Wish Big” card, by Morgan Bandkowski.
Baby Girl: It's a Girl; Kiss Me: True Love; Sophisticates: Sprinkles & Lace Punch
