Congratulations Graduate..Win a Nurse!

First of all, for any mother who may be reading this---HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!

RE: MFT blog candy. That contest is closed now. Random.Cara is away this weekend with her dad....so she will pick the winner of the MFT set as soon as she gets back tonight. Sorry for the delay!

Well, I mentioned that you can turn Nurse Feelgood (Gina K Designs) into anything because of the way she is drawn.
Here is another example of her versatility.....now she is a graduate:

To turn the image into a graduate, I simply wiped off the ink from the nurse cap and stamped the image. I drew in a graduation cap. To create the gown, I extended her sleeves to cover her arms and extended her skirt. After sketching these details right over the image, I colored it in. The black ink covered the original stamped lines.

Whola! Nurse Feelgood is a graduate. Boy, this girl gets around!

Wanna win a Nurse Feelgood set? Simply leave a comment on this post by Tuesday night at 8 p.m. CENTRAL TIME and tell me what you want to create with her. Random.Cara will select a winner. (Subscribers can enter twice!)

DID YOU SEE IT? Gina K just released the first issue of Stamping Lifestyle Magazine on Stamp TV. You can download it HERE for FREE. (Check inside for a coupon!)

Have a WONDERFUL Day!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

fabulous job!I would create a graduate too cause that is what I need now,lol.My daughter is graduating and she needs cards for her friends ;)

Rebecca said...

I want to make her into a waitress! My sentiment would be "my kitchen or yours"....Nurse Feelgood is stinkin' cute!

Anita said...

Wow! What a fantastic way to change her outfit.

Jean from jlfstudio said...

What...Mother's Day without Random.Cara...You'll have to get your turn on Father's Day! LOL!

I'm really loving Nurse Feelgood. Kinda thinking Glenda Gardener holding a flowerpot or Sally Stateswoman holding a flag or the United Nations Charter. Hmmm...Maybe even Connie construction worker if I can figure out how to put her in pants and a flannel shirt and a hard hat of course!

Happy Mother's Day and thanks for sharing the inspiration and the candy. - Jean

Stamp Talk with Tosh said...

Love the versatility of your nurse Cam. Your spiral punched border and congrats bg are fantastic!

Jan Castle said...

Yes, it is that time of year again...nurse feelgood will certainly work well for a graduate card...among other uses. I would enjoy using this stamp set...hope I win!

Moni said...

Waw so gorgeous stamp! soon Ihope will be graduate so will need to do myself a card and would love to do the scrapbook! Hugs, Moni

Moni said...

I am your ubscriber, thanks for the chance! Hugs, Moni

CraftingAnu said...

I'd like to turn her into a bride. And since I'm an Indian and a Hindu, I think it will be possible to put her in a traditional Indian saree too by just drawing it on and her skin colored in a little darker.

CraftingAnu said...

For being a subscriber, I get a second chance! I think turning her into a forest ranger would be a great idea too. A card with her clothes paper pieced anda nice hat to match would look really good. Animals from all the Gina K Design sets would work well to create the perfect forest scene with her.

I would love these stamps since you have shown us all how versatile they are.

Your graduate idea comes in handy right about now! I think I'd make her into a secretary for Secretary's Week!

Gabriela said...

Now THAT was a very clever application of these two sets. Great card, Cammie! Happy Mother's Day to you, my dear.

Janet L. said...

What a versatile stamp!! My niece graduates from art school soon and the set would be perfect to use for her graduation card. Thanks for the chance to win!!

Julie said...

What a versatile little lady! She sure does get around!!! Great card by the way!

Jennie said...

Can you make her into a politician? Hhhmmm... I am watching the news so that was my inspiration :o)
Thanks for the chance, love your set!

Parker and Emma's Mom said...

We have 3 graduations to go later this month, so this would be perfect!

Darlene L said...

You are just so clever and creative with this set. Love the card. This coming week is National Nurses Day. Thanks for the chance to win a set.

Susan Hackney said...

I'd like to use her as a teacher.
Thanks for the chance to win and Happy Mother's Day!

Donna said...

I think she would look great just as a woman for the front of a card. She doesn't have to be a particular person. You could use all kinds of funny bubble sayings for birthdays and anniversaries. Hope you have a wonderful Mother's Day. I'm looking forward to getting back in the swing after the Vancouver trip, though a bit jet-lagged today. Have agreat day!

Donna said...

Here's my second comment for being a subscriber. Thanks for the chance to win!

Joyce said...

I think I would leave her as a nurse, and use her on a Get Well card. Thanks for the chance at some blog candy. So sorry you are "alone" on this Mother's Day. I know the feeling.

Chelle said...

I love that you were able to switch up the nurse so easily - another great set :D

Anita said...

I would make a nurse with her. My daughter graduates from nursing school this fall and I'd love to use this set to make her a card.

Judi said...

Happy Mother's Day to you as well, Cammie. I would probably use her the first time to make a teacher. Love the versatility.

Judi said...

Here's my second entry since I'm a subscriber. After I used her to make a teacher card, I think I would use her to make a Mom to Mom card for a friend.

The Crazy Life of a Navy Wife said...

I would love to win this set!! I've been wanting to purchase it, but with the economy and my husband getting out of the military, I unfortunately cannot purchase any more stamps!!! I'm not sure what I would turn her into, but I can definitely see myself using her all of the time!!

Elena said...

What a creative way to use this stamp! Love your idea, Cammie!
I think she can be a Stewardess!Hope I spelled it correct...

JennyM said...

Thanks for a chance to win this great set. I love it. Let's see, do I have any graduates. MMMM. Jenny

JennyM said...

OK Here is number two for subscribing. I hope I win. Jenny

What a cute card! I love your creativity.

StampinCathy said...

Happy Mother's Day to YOU! Hope your day is full of love, joy, and relaxation!
I would love to be the lucky stamper to win this set. I would love to make some graduation cards too. Also I would love to make some thank you cards for the nurses and helpers at the Ronald McDonald house for my nephew that has been there for 2 years. Thanks so much for a chance.

StampinCathy said...

Wooo Hooo! I'm a subscriber. Thanks for another chance.

Deb Neerman said...

Happy Mommy's Day, Cammie!

How clever; the Nurse is now a Graduate!! Have you tried turning the Nurse into a bride ... or a Cowgirl?

Hope you have an amazing, lazy, fattening, gift-y Mommy's Day!!

Lori said...

Hi Cammie, Happy Mothers Day to you, too. I would like to turn Nurse Feelgood into my bff, who is the manager for our girls soccer team. Make her sleeves longer and red, turn her skirt into the bottom of a sweatshirt and sweatpants, and add a whistle around her neck. Possibly a ball cap if I can figure it out.
Thanks, Lori

Joanne (jojot) said...

really wonderful Bam Bam how you have made her into a graduate.....now if you can just get her a job...lol

Happy Mother's Day to you

nancy said...

how adorable. That is a great idea. Another reason why I "need" this set.

Lori said...

For my second, (subscriber) chance. I would put her in a fancy outfit for the opera!

Terri E. said...

Love your nurse set and my Dr. Feelgood has been waiting for a lady. I haven't been able to swing her yet, so this would be such a treat.

It's a good life!
Terri E.

Amy Johnson said...

Wow! What a fantastic Grad. Card. I can't believe you hand drew the cap and gown. How creative to use an image intended for a completely different purpose! Love it!

Juanita Davis said...

What a wonderful idea of changing her around. I would make her be a tour guide and the trip be Hawaii!!!!!!
Well, back to real life now. Thanks for the chance to win and you have yourself a very happy Mother's Day!

Juanita Davis said...

For my second chance, how about she becomes the teacher that has brought so much joy to my children this year!

Shelby said...

She's great! I love the versatility, too!

Shelby said...

As a nursing student, I can see many ways that Nurse Feelgood would come in handy in my future!

kellygrl27 said...

Wow! that "nurse feelgood" does it all....kinda like a mom, eh? I'd love to win her and see what she can do! Thanks for the chance to win.

kellygrl27 said...

OH! I forgot that subscribers get two chances! How exciting. THanks again.

Charlene Merrick (LilLuvsStampin) said...

Very cute, Cam! The daughter of a friend of mine just graduated from nursing school, and I am looking forward to making her a congrats cxard with this set!

Kitty Rodahl said...

I like the versatility of this stamp. At our house she would have to become an athlete of some sort...tennis or basketball, or put her in a choir robe! Thanks, Cammie!

Kitty Rodahl said...

I am a subscriber. How about a nature lover with a few birds around her and some binoculars...The list could go on and on...

okienurse said...

I am an RN and I am happy to see a stamp that I can use to make cards etc for my co-workers. With very little alteration I can have a Dr., a lab person, a dietician etc. I see a teacher, a dentist, a librarian and even the clerk at the store. I love this stamp set and payday it will be mine!. Happy Mothers day to everyone!

gizgad said...

I would create a thank you card for the hospital & hospice nurses who just helped with the passing of my Mother. It's a sad time for my family but I so appreciate the nurses who helped my Mother.

gizgad said...

subscriber so here's my 2nd post. The hospital nurses that took care of my Mother will be getting a card from my family. The Nurse Feelgood set would be perfect for their cards!

Marsha said...

What a wonderful graduation card. Love the versatility of this stamp. I am a waitress so I think we could do that easily - with guest check and pen, apron.
P.S. Happy Mother's Day.

Marsha said...

Subscriber - 2nd entry.
How about a nun?

Fabulous card, Cammie.
Love how you changed her, she looks great.
Love the color combo.
Hope you had a great Mother's Day!

mspiggy7 said...

Happy Mother's Day to you, too. I love your graduate. You are so creative. I would also try to make a nurse for mt grandson's graduation.

Spicey Cat Chick said...

Wahoo for the graduate! I'm doing a stack of graduation cards and Nurse Feelgood would be very busy in my house if I win! I'd try to make her a bit 'farmer-ey' (is that a word). I work at an eg production plant and am always making cards for my coop mates.

Spicey Cat Chick said...

Oh yeah, I'm a follower as well (on Google Reader). I always love your stuff!

Sandra said...

my, my - she does get around doesn't she!
Thanks for sharing!

Karen said...

What a great stamp Cammie. I would use her for a mother's day card (next year, of course). So many possibilities!

Happy Mother's Day!

Margo said...

I would love to turn her into a Real Estate agent! I think she could be holding a contract with the word "sold" across it!!!

linda patti tpatti@windstream.net said...

i would create some thank you card for my mom to give to her favorite nurses

Diane said...

I think a mom or a secretary would be good choices.

Diane said...

Second chance as a subscriber - the love the graduate, too. It's that time of year to get lots of use out of that one! Thanks for the chances to win.

karahoward said...

Besides the fact that I think a Cara or Kara should win...I'd make a teacher. I'm and El. Ed. graduate and always love finding new teacher appreciation things.

Kathy Kelsheimer said...

I'd turn her into a cop! A shecop, to be exact!

retiredheather said...

Since I have a graduating son with lots of girl friends I would love to do the graduate girl but you could also do a card for a female minister.
Hugs
Heather

Sara P said...

I think she would be an awsome teacher for an end of the school year card.

Lindsay said...

I would make her a "mom" because I think she resembles my mom... Mother's Day card for next year?? :)

Hmmm maybe I could make her into a Lab Technologist like me!

I would make cards for all my co-workers/friends that are also nurses. This is a great set for those of us in the medical field.
