commissioned cards

And yet more commissioned cards. 

Requested for a policeman getting his third star ...



And I loved this one. Got the request for a "Traufe" card - Trauung + Taufe (marriage + baptism) card. And the couple loves Dumbo. OMG. That stumped me for awhile. Nothing against Dumbo, but for the life of me I could not get a wedding card and Dumbo combined in one design idea that I felt comfortable with.

I searched all my supplies (for two hours) trying to find inspiration and these Top Dog Die elephants did the trick. An elegant elephant wedding card - whoddathunk? The white and gold did the trick. And pleased my customer.

Can you guess the recipient of this first card? A teacher! How'd I do?

Simply Graphic frame dies
Memory Box number dies
embossing pen to write sentiment

And this one was a challenge.  A Covid theme for a gal turning 40. Had to get creative with clip art and a hole punch!

update on STAMPlorations (4)

Howdy friends! 

As I mentioned in my last post, even in my less prolific days you could still count on me for my weekly inspiration posts using STAMPlorations products. I've been blessed to support Shery and the store since the beginning. Things were quiet around here lately. For the following reason.

You may or may not have seen the post over at STAMP regarding Shery's hiatus. "The energizer bunny," as I've always lovingly called her, has been forced to slow down. She has cancer and is going into battle to kick its butt. 

Basically, the store is closed for the time being since Shery needs all her energy for herself and her family. But she wouldn't be Shery without keeping a couple options open. Afterall, the store provides a portion of her family's income. 

First, digi stamps are still available since they require little physical effort to send to customers. Second, Shery has, as energy allows, created some product bundles at fabulous prices which she can pack up when she's feeling up to it and then just pop in the mail when people buy them. And third, she's offering mystery bundles at an amazing discount. If you'd like to check it out, here's a link to the store and the bundles.

I posted projects using digi stamps from the STAMPlorations store last week if you want to check them out.

Today I will share projects using some of the great products included in the Birthday Bundle #1 which Shery has put together at a price that is 50% off!

Using the birthday cake cover plate and selectively coloring the die cut with markers. See this post.


Or use the cover plate to dry emboss a background.


Or cut it from craft foam to make your own stamp and use it to stamp and heat emboss the design before ink blending the background. Check out my original post for deets.


Here's a card using the phrase die included in the bundle.


 Thanks for looking and maybe even supporting Shery and the store :)
