Card Drive for Emma!
Here is another card I created for Emma. "She loves the colors green, purple and blue". "She has no siblings. She has two dogs, a cat and a fish. She LOVES horses and bunnies. She enjoys horseback riding, swimming, dancing and singing." Just a "regular" little girl with one exception - Emma is fighting for her life. She has Leukemia.
If you have not heard about the card drive for Emma I would like to encourage you to visit Kelly's Place Blog for all the details and how you can help simply by making a card or two.
I used a "front and back" image from Art Impressions. These stamps have been around since before I started making cards yet they are still among the best in the industry, in my opinion. : )
With a "Stamp-a-ma-jig" these cards are very easy to make!
I stamped the back and then stamped her face on the Stamp-a-ma-jig plastic sheet. Then I turned the image of her back up to the light and lined up the Stamp-a-ma-jig plastic sheet until it was "perfectly" aligned.
I then lay it down on my table and without moving anything lined up the Stamp-a-ma-jig guide, removed the plastic sheet from it's position and stamped the girl face "perfectly" LOL ok, maybe I didn't do it perfectly but I doubt Emma will complain heehee.
Freshly Made Sketches I have been lurking around this wonderful blog for some time now. I have decided to enter this card in that challenge. Please visit this blog and the blogs of each "clean team" member - I know you will find, as I have, some great card making inspiration! : )
I changed up the orientation from a portrait to a landscape design and instead of a bow I placed my little girl image : ) Sweet sketch! I love the simplicity. It really inspired me to NOT try to place a bunch of flowers around the fence or drape a banner! heehee it was hard to resist adding more - I'm not terribly good at "clean and simple" cards. In one act of CAS rebellion I stamped my fence on some "stone washed" striped paper that might give the appearance of a fence painted by a little girl. : )
Thank you so much fro stopping by!
