Send a Smile 4 Kids: Bright Colors 4 Kids

Happy Saturday!  That means it’s time for a new Send a Smile 4 Kids challenge and we are celebrating Bright Colors 4 Kids!  You have until Friday, July 24th to enter your card. We are always so grateful to our wonderful sponsors who support us by offering such great prizes.

Those sponsors are:

1) Stitchy Bear – offering $10 dollar gift certificate to store.

2) The Cutting Cafe– offering 3 digital images or cut files of winners choice.

3) Sassy Studios – offering 4 digital images of winners choice.

My first card uses Stitchy Bears Cartoon Boy Riding on Skateboard” digital image which I colored with Copic Markers.  The sentiment is also Stitchy Bear from “Tammy Tween” digital image. I colored the edges with distress ink while the spellbinders die was still in place creating that great white border. The background is an embossing folder by Darice and a great price at Hobby Lobby.  The stars across the card are from Simon Says Stamp “Hey Dude.”

The next card features a super fun project from The Cutting Cafe called,  “Sail Boat Shaped Card Set”.  This project can be done without a specialized cutting machine by simply printing the PDF file from a standard printer, which I’ve done.  The pattern paper is from Our Daily Bread.  To create the layers behind the pattern paper, I used the same pattern then trimmed a little off each side to fit.  To ensure both sides were even, I cut both right and left pattern papers at the same time.  I distressed the edges of the card stock with Distress Ink and colored wood veneer stars using my new Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.  The sentiment was cut using standard circle dies from My Favorite Things.


I can’t wait to see what you come up with using Bright Colors 4 Kids.

Don’t forget, Send a Smile 4 Kids has added more hospitals and need your donated cards. Come on over and check out the donation needs. Here’s How.
