CARDS for Children’s Hospital!

Hi there and Welcome!

KimberlyRae, here to share with you several cards I made for cancer patients and will be sending to my friend Melanie to give to the Hospital in Georgia.

20161016_113954

For these cards I used my Gansi Tambi Watercolors and Altenew’s Bamboo Rose stamp set, on Bristol paper.    I absolutely love this ‘messy watercolor’  look!  The colors are so vibrant and happy.   I embossed each sentiment with Ranger Gold embossing powder on vellum and tried lots of different looks with colored papers.

Here, I used Gina Marie Scalloped frame dies, for my layering.

I’m also in the process of making all occasion cards for our Seattle Children’s Hospital, right here in my neck-of-the-woods, but I’ll post the Tacoma address, too.   There are a few guidelines to follow, such as:
-All kinds of homemade cards (mostly all seasons and birthdays) leave blank inside of cards so they can write a message themselves.
-No smoking
-No perfume
-No religious
-Few embellishments like buttons,  but okay with sequins and glimmer
-Can mail packages of cards anytime every month [whatever you want]

If you wish to contribute, please send your cards to:

Seattle Children Hospital
c/o Volunteer Services
4800 Sand Point Way NE
Seattle, WA 98105

Mary Bridge Children Hospital
c/o Alli Roff, Volunteer Services
315 MLK Jr Way
TACOMA, WA 98405

I have set a challenge for myself to make at least 20 cards a month to share with Seattle Children’s Hospital.   Will you Challenge yourself, too?

Thank you for visiting and as always have a fantastic crafty day!  See  you next time ????

Hugs and Blessings,

Here’s my 2nd card:

‘Shadow Flight’ by KimberlyRae

20161018_132313

I really wanted to challenge myself creating something simplistic and see where that would go….So, I thought my butterfly needed a shadow.  I could have done this in many different ways, but I love the way the wood shadow came out, it makes the butterfly look like it’s in flight.  I used the Painted Butterflies DIE to create the shadow.

What’s so awesome, is the wood sheet is real wood.  Altenew, really sets  the standards of quality, with their exceptional products.  Such as their wood sheets and crisp dye inks.  I used crimson, dark chocolate, warm sunshine and butter cream inks to complete my project.

To make my botanical leafy background, I used ‘Peony Bouquet‘ stamp set and Forest Glades and Frayed Leaf Altenew inks and purposely off-centered the so to create some added interest.

Altenew, provides Beautiful, quality stamps just like ‘Painted Butterflies‘ and ‘Peony Bouquet‘ stamp sets,  I used to make my card with.

One-Layer FISH Flip Card-Tutorial

Hello Everyone!

I’m here, today to share with you a one-layer, flip card.  My card was created on one piece of paper and die cut off the edge.

Now, as most of you know,  I’m  relatively  new to card making and while I’m  still learning, I have to say I appreciate many other crafters videos to get me started on this new journey.

One of those, is from Jennifer Mcquire.  For me, her videos are mini-class lessons.   So,  this week, I learned something new-off the edge die curing and this technique is Awesome!

Here’s a few photos of my cards, using this technique.:

20160329_064441-1

[Please, click on photos for Larger view]

I started out, using neenah 80#card stock and used Hero arts stamp set, matching dies and mini ink pads.

First, I stamped the gold fish on top,  then the one at the bottom.

Since, I was making multiple cards, I used my MISTI tool- this thing is Great, can’t say enough good things about it.

After I thought my card was finished,  it looked a little empty, so I added the fish to the left and it appears that he is hiding behind the seaweed.

20160329_064528

Then, I placed my matching die on the fish and just cut half way, with my big shot…this way my gold fish pops off the edge!   Love this and you will see me make moder cards with this technique!

20160329_065625-1

My goal here, was to keep everything Simple, no frills and gills [punt intended…lol]!  Just the ‘no frills’ part was a challenge for me, but I Love these fish!

I’m super happy the way my cards turned out and you will see me make more cards with this technique!

Thank you for stopping by!  I’d love to hear from you!  Please, feel free to leave me a comment below 🙂

Hugs and Blessings,
