Card Drives (Part 1)



Hello.  It is almost the weekend here.  Yay.  I must warn you that I am posting a lot of cards today.  I've been on a tear, making cards for various card drives.  Are you ready?




I will start with 4 cards that I am linking up to the Pink Christmas challenge at Jingle Belles.   They are donating $4 to the Susan G. Koman Foundation for every card linked up.  And, then I am sending these cards along to the Caring Hearts card drive.

I followed the sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch and was inspired by Kristi's card for my first two cards.








I made a bunch of cards using this sketch from Clean and Simple Stamping #311.


All the rest of my cards are for various challenges at Splitcoast Stampers Hope You Can Cling To, and I will be sending them to MD Anderson Cancer Center.

This card plays along with the current challenge at Tag You're It #8 and the Something's Missing challenge at HYCCT.  On this card, the stamped background sentiment letters are missing color inside.  I wanted to show that something could be very pretty and still be missing something.  The background stamping Kim did on this card was my inspiration.



These next two cards may look the same, but can you spot the difference?  I switched around the order of the ice cream colors, since I had to run the die through 5 times, once for each color.  Yes, if you are a regular reader, you will eventually see these ice creams on 5 different cards.  One is for the Spoonful of Sugar challenge and the other is for the Two by Two challenge to use pink and purple together.


The next 10 cards are for the Stripping Down challenge to use strips of paper.  I used the sketch above from Clean and Simple Stamping and really had a good time digging through my pattern papers to make these cards.  And, while they all follow the same basic sketch, they are all different in some way.  Here goes:

Well, that's it for me today.  I have a bunch more half finished that I will work on and post over the weekend.


Thanks for Visiting

  4. Wow Joyce. How wonderful that you were able to make so many cards for these drives. My most favorite of the bunch is the one with all the thanks in the background with the quilted die over it for texture.

  17. Those diagonal striped cards are wonderful for using up those off size strips of paper you keep because you can't bear to part with them. You were on a stamp making whirl! Good for you!
