A Card Fit for a Ninja

I have a friend named Jason Hillard, who is more commonly known as the ham sandwich-eating Homeloan Ninja.  While we were attending a real estate conference last month, it was my duty and privilege to tweet a little bit about what each speaker was saying.  There was a lot of great information to share and I ended up sending out so many tweets (a potential sign of spam), that Twitter put me in a “time out” and wouldn’t allow me to tweet for an hour or so.  Jason graciously offered me to tweet as him from his Twitter account so that I could keep the tweets coming.

Well, I just happened to have this unused card that had a Twitter bird dressed as a Ninja, clutching a ham sandwich, flying through the sky with a trail of Ninja stars in its wake – so I gave it to him a few weeks later! 😉

I cut out the bird using my Straight from the Nest Cricut cartridge and the rest of the shapes were freehand cuts I made with my scissors.  I added a googly eye and inked the edges on each cut-out piece to give it dimension.  Jason loved his card!

Thanks for reading my blog post and have a great day!

 

About Stephanie Chumbley

Growing up in the shadow of the Space Needle, I loved drawing portraits with a #2 pencil and sometimes a ballpoint pen because I liked the challenge. I collected pens and pencils and enjoyed looking at fonts and logos and replicating them by hand. I was in AP art classes in high school and took some graphic design classes at Seattle Central. While in college, I had a part-time job making signs for Drug Emporium / Longs Drugs with my "Steph Font." In my 20s, I made a lot of invitations for dinner parties and later, when I bought my Cricut Expression electronic cutter in 2008, I started making cards for all occasions. In 2009, I discovered Close to My Heart and enjoyed being my Consultant's best customer... but in May 2011, I finally gave in and became and Independent Consultant. It was a very good decision! :-) Nearly everything I make is given away or sold so others can enjoy some handmade art. I've made over 1,000 cards and projects and this blog serves as a way to share and hopefully inspire others to create projects of their own. Someday I hope to catch up and blog about all the cards I've made.

  1. The picture of me that Dale took makes me look like I’m drooling (maybe I was) LOL.

    Thank you again Stephanie, that card is chock full of awesomesauce! There will be a Posterous post later today showing one of my friend’s holding the card. Will ping you later 😉

    • Haha! If you want me to use another picture, you can send me one you want me to use but in the meantime, the drooling pic is here to stay. 😉 I am sooooo happy you love your card – it’s one of the favorites I have ever made. I’m excited to see the Posterous post! Take care, and see ya next time!
