Kite Card for Operation Write Home’s Midweek Throwdown: Go Fly A Kite!

Hi all,

Operation Write Home requested we make a card with a kite for their Midweek Throwdown: Go Fly A Kite!  I thought this cute bird flying a kite was perfect for it.  I used the cut and print feature of my Cameo to cut the design.  I added lots of additional color with Tombow dual brush pens.  I also added some glimmer with Glossy Accents.  The card is an A2 size .  I printed the sentiment using my computer.

Please consider making cards for this great organization.  The soldiers also enjoy getting any hero mail.

Operation Write Home VCMP Cards For Kids Challenge

2013-09-0413.24.56The challenge on this stop is to make a kiddie card using the tic-tac-toe board
shown below. I choose to go down the center row for my card.  This was a lot of fun to make.  The sheep is from the silhouette store.  The fence is a Martha Stewart punch. It originally had little bats on the posts but I clipped them off so it wouldn’t be just for Halloween. Thank you Scrapping with Purpose for a great challenge.

Thinking of You Card for Operation Write Home

20130313_143521Hi,

I know it has been awhile since my last post.  I have a new grandson and have been helping my daughter.  I have been fortunate to have two new grandbabies born. One in December and one end of February.  The joy they bring is beyond measure.

I made this card for Operation Write Home and Dynamic Duo and their color challenge for this week. We were challenged to make a card using blue and green. The card is 4.25 by 5.5. I used my cameo and the print and cut feature. The little bird is from the silhouette on line store. The blue background paper is from DCWV.

Operation Write Home Midweek Challenge Celebrate Friendship

Hi,
I hope everyone is having a great week. It is hard to believe October is almost over.

This week OWH has challenged us to make friendship cards for our troops to send home.

I made this card using the Country Life Cricut cartridge. I cut the little pig and hen at 4 inches. I added liquid pearls to the pig , hen and sun for dimension.  I also used glossy accents. The paper for the background is from the cricut celebrations paper pack. The ticket stamp is a Close to My Heart stamp and the little tag and sentiment is from teeny tag sentiments by  My Creative Time. The finished card measures 5.50 by 4.25.

I love to get feedback, so please feel free to leave a comment.

OWH Sketch Challenge #143 with Tonic Studios!

Operation Write Home along with Tonic Studios has challenged us to create a card for our Troops using sketch #143.

Here’s the sketch…

I decided to create a card with a winter theme. I used Close To My Heart Artiste Cricut cartridge for the snowflakes and the coordinating winter stamp for the sentiment.  I used cuddlebug snowflake embossing folder for the background.  I highlighted the embossed snowflakes with Tim Holtz embossing ink. I added liquid pearls to the snowflake to give it a little dimension and sparkle.  I embellished the bow with a crystal from Megan Elizabeth | Above Rubies Studio

I love the blue and white colors together. The card measures 4.25 by 5.50.

Comments are always welcome.

Operation Write Home Blog Hop

I made these cards for Operation Write Home’s blog hop. We were to use a winter theme to make cards that our heroes could use to send home to their love ones.  The first one is made using  Close to My Heart winter sentiment and snowflakes from the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge. I used liquid pearls to decorate the snowflakes and the ink was one of Megan’s little juicy stamp pads from Above Rubbies Studio.  I love the way the colors match. I added a little stickles to the bottom snowflake and popped up the sentiment and center snowflake to add demension.

The second card was made using the same cartridge and stamp set.  Only this time I used the OWH sketch 139 as my inspiration.  The pattern paper is from Recollections.  I used the liquid pearls again to add demension and sparkle and popped up the center snowflake.

I hope you are enjoying the card hop. Please consider joining us in making cards for our heroes. It is our way of saying thankyou and letting them know we care.  Feel free to leave a comment. I love reading them.
