CAS Kid's Cards Times Three


Happy Sunday, peeps!  Time for another Paper Players challenge, with Joanne as our hostess!  She's got a fun challenge for us all:


I actually made THREE cards before I was really happy, does that ever happen to you?  But I needed to do some other things this weekend, so it is what it is!!!  Here's my final one; it uses an old Cornish Heritage Farms set called Make the Grade along with a Paper Pumpkin sentiment:


I stamped each crayon using inks in Granny Apple Green, Real Red, Gorgeous Grape, Bermuda Bay, Pumpkin Pie, Pacific Point, Crushed Curry and Poppy Parade, then cut each one out and adhered them to a card that was embossed with a Jumbo Polka Dot embossing folder.  On the inside, I stamped a few more images from the same CHF set:


Another card I created (at least I'll have a few kid's birthday cards, right?!) was this one, using the FMS sketch and Just Add Ink challenge of no stamping:


I scrounged around my scrap bin and found some printed papers, added a little diecut dump truck, and then added some SRM stickers for my sentiments:


Easy peasy!  My only complaint about this one is that the edge of the stickers  are really visible on the printed paper.  Finally, since yesterday was Cassidy's birthday, and she was having a Minecraft birthday party (sigh), I made her a creeper notecard-sized birthday card.  NOT what I would choose for a 9YO little girl, but she has very definite likes and dislikes, and she does not like girly colors and she does like Minecraft, so Minecraft it is:


I created the creeper with Granny Apple Green and Basic Gray cardstocks, stamping the "HB2U" with the Labeler Alphabet (ret) and mounting it on a Chevron-embossed panel.  And here is her most recent fashion "accessory"....blue hair!!!


At least it's not neon....and really, it's kind of pretty!!  It will fade out eventually, but meanwhile, it's her signature style for now!

Anyway, thanks for popping in! I hope that you'll play along with the Paper Players this week...the DT has some really fun creations, you need to check them all out and share yours with us too!  See you at the Paper Players blog!

Happy birthday to Cassidy. 9???? how did that happen so quickly??? Your cards are really cute. My fave is the crayon one and least favorite is ... well, you know! But that's because we are not 9!! Is the blue a wash in/wash out color or permanent? Have a blessed day.

Wow, you rocked all three of your kids' cards! The crayons really pop with color and that little dump truck is just the cutest! Cassidy is becoming a young lady and leaving her little girl looks behind...so beautiful!

They're all cute kid cards. What's not to like about crayons, chunky polka dots, dump trucks and robots (creepers!). She's growing up so fast...9 already...unbelievable!

Such a fabulous collection of kids' cards LeAnne! I love the dimension of your bright, dump truck amongst the papers you paired it with and good on you for being such a great sport to create a Minecraft card! Thanks for sharing with us at Just Add Ink this week.

What a cute collection of kids cards, LeAnne. All so different but lots of fun. When I saw your no stamping card, I thought 'Stickers! - why did I not think of that' Love the little car - it's a super cute card all round. Thanks for playing along with the JAI challenge.
Hope Miss loved her Minecraft card too.
Di :)

LeAnne I love all three of your cards and any child would I'm sure be delighted to receive one! Bright primary colours, fun items such as crayons and diggers that they immediately identify with and as for Minecraft - eternally popular with 9 year olds and then some! Cassidy is very brave with her blue hair- I wish I had her style!!

Claire Broadwater said...

All 3 of these cards are amazing! You know I love those big polka dots and crayons though! You certainly rocked this challenge! I love Cassidy's hair. She is so pretty! XX

Loving Cassidy's new signature hair. awesome! I love all three cards. The crayon and dots reminds me of lego blocks and i love that it has a tactile quality about it. I am in love with the one with the truck. A great selection of kiddie cards, LeAnne. BTW... I now have to go and google minecraft :-)
hugs
