Gift Basket

This is a little basket of creative cheer for a friend's mother-in-law. She's just had knee surgery and is in need of something to do. (Hospitals drive me crazy too so I felt the need to help out!) She likes to make cards so I put together examples of 3 different cards for her to make. Two for Christmas and one set of Thank You cards. Total of 36 cards. All the paper is cut and stamped. She will do the coloring and assembly ~ everything needed is in the basket ~ markers, glue stick, pop dots, small ink pad, even the envelopes. I also found a small Domino game so I tossed that in too.
This is the front of the large magnetic tag/card I made for her. Sentiment was typed on my computer. It says, "Be patient, follow Doctor's orders, and in no time at all..." The brad was made with I-Top. Shapes cut with nesties.

Here is the inside of the card. It says, "you'll feel like dancin', dancin', you'll dance the night away"  I just love this dancin' granny! So sassy and happy! She is a digital image by Mo Manning. The sentiment was typed on my computer. (I like to do things quick and easy!)
Here are pics of the cards she can make. Simple but fun!

ATC Clark County Fair

Group 6 Farm Animals
ATC for a swap on the Cricut Message Board. The background is from my computer. The cow is cut with cricut, colored with copics and glitter pen used on eyes and hooves. The first place ribbon is also from my computer. It is colored with copics and I used glitter pens on it before cutting it out.

ATC Sea Otter

Group 5 Sea Animals
I love otters! This little guy is printed from my computer. I cut around his paw and lifted it to insert the shell. The shell is a real one I brought back from the beach. I used a gel writer for the bubbles going up the side.

ATC One Fine Vine Swinger

Group 4 Wildlife Animals
This guy is hanging on a vine background that I printed from my computer. He's cut from the "Create A Critter" cricut cartridge. He has 3 layers.

ATC My Friend Panda

Group 3 Zoo Animals
Another ATC for the cricut board. Origami papers cut into rectangles and then cut diagonally. I used two different papers on each ATC. This paper is embossed and has a rubbery feel to it. The panda is cut from suede with cricut. I used gold smooch on "Friend".

ATC Hummingbird in Flight

Group 2 Birds
This ATC was made for a swap on the Cricut Message Board. The image is printed from my computer, colored with copics and chalks. Glitter pens used on the hummer and flower.

ATC Oriental Butterfly

Group 1b Butterfly
Another ATC for a swap on the Cricut Message Board.  Origami paper cut into rectangles and then cut diagonally. I used two different papers on each ATC. The "Butterfly" stamp is heat embossed onto vellum and cut with a punch. Butterfly is from Gypsy Wanderings - one layer in gold and one in shimmery purple.

ATC - Butterfly Love

Group 1a Butterfly
This is an ATC I made for a swap on the Cricut Message board. I used lavender cardstock with a layer of handmade paper on top. The heart is printed onto vellum and cut out. The butterflies are transparancies, cut with cricut, colored with copics and a line of stickles for the body.

Card Sketch Challenge for Karen's Doodles

I made this card for the sketch challenge over on Karen's Doodles. The image is called Penguin Cupcake. Colored with copic markers, scallops cut with nesties. Happy Birthday sheet music was a free download, ribbon from M's, brad from CKC shopping. This card will go to my son for his next birthday. He plays oboe and English horn and is playing solo at Carnegie Hall this month! (Had to brag I am so happy for him!)

This is one of my favorite Bella stamps! Here is an ATC I made but I've made a few cards with this stamp also.
Here is a card I made with a digital stamp by Mo Manning. She has several freebies you can try out. ( ) I used prismas to color the image, chalks for the background, flocked the ducks and used crystal accents on the puddles. I used a plain brad, heated and dipped into embossing powder mixed with glitter then heated again. Fun to make!
I made this ATC for a swap also. I love the lil monkey :D The only cricut cut here was the fish.

Vintage ATC

I just finished these ATC's for a swap over on the cricut message board. I used swiss dots on the black layer and then colored them with a silver gel pen so the dots would look like riveets. It was harder than I thought it would be to stick to just three colors but it was FUN! I love making ATC's and hope to make more soon.
