Kards for Kids February Challenge

This set of cards is in response to the February color challenge to the Smiley Team creating cards for Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children. Learn more about the program and the challenge at Kards for Kids .

This silly monkey was cut on the Cricut Machine with the New Arrivals Cartridge at 4.5" default. He was topped off with brown flocking. The base  SU cardstock is cut to create a 5 3/4" square. the unknown designer paper is cut at 5 1/2". SU corner punch added a bit of interest in the top corners, and an SU stamp was used for the sentiment.

The challenge was to use a plaid PJ theme in brown, green and beige. I had no plaid, nor PJ's, so substituted dots and monkeys.

This young man is an image from Sugar Plums. He originally came with a balloon, but I removed most of the balloon ink with a damp paper towel before stamping.

He's on X-Press It blending card in Momento black and colored in Copics as follows:
Jeans: B91, B93, B95, B97
Shirt: E40, E41, E42
Shoes: N0, N3, N5

Skin: E00, E01, R20

The boat image is from Cricut's New Arrivals cut at 3.5" and the waves are from the Plantin cartridge, cut at 2" and trimmed down. The sentiment is and punches are SU.

The challenge was to use navy, grey, white and cream in a nautical theme.

Hero Arts Sweet Wonderful You image is in Momento Rich Cocoa on X-Press It and colored with Copics as follows:
Hair: E34, E35, E37, E39. highlited with Spica Buttermilk, Gold and Chocolate
Skin: E000, E02, R20
Clothes and Flowers: RV11, RV13, G000, G00
Bag: as above plus E31, E33, G02

The cardstock and designer paper is all SU. The flower die cut is Cuttlebug and the lace trim is My Favorite Things. The sentiment is heat embossed in Distress Ink Worn Lipstick.

The challenge here was to use pink, green and white with florals.

The challenge was to use red and white gingham in a country theme. Well, this is what I had to work with - LOL!

The cardstock is Stardream Metallic and the designer paper is SU.

Cricut's Mother's Day Bouquet was used to cut the flower.

A spellbinder die, cut in half, holds the SU sentiment.

This challenge was to use red, blue and navy in a baseball theme. Again, I had to use what I had.

The navy and red cardstock pieces are SU, the light blue cardstock is unknown. A Cuttlebug embossing folder adds interest to the light blue, and was sponged with Distress Chipped Sapphire. The greeting is SU in Sapphire.

The High Hopes image is stamped with Momento Black on X-Press It, cut with Spellbinders, sponged with Distress Weathered Wood,  and colored with Copics as follows.
