Week of 9/19/20 Cards

 

FS710 - This weeks incredibly talented featured stamper is MaryJo (Icela52). I found this cute CARD

USEIT2020 - Heartfelt Creations card kit

When I saw Mary Jo's card I remembered I had this Heartfelt Creations card kit that I needed to get used up. The images already came stamped and cut.

I colored all the flowers, leaves and boots with copics. Next I shaped all the flowers, leaves and boots. I sponged the edge of the DP and glued all the layers.

I added dimensionals to the boots layers to add more interest to the card. Finished off with stickles.

Thinking of You


CAS603 - Ducks in a Row

Stamped the cute baby ducks and colored with copics. Cut the tag and added ribbon. Added a row of lacey ribbon and finished with sequins.

Special Delivery


MMTPT634 - Say it with flowers

USEIT2020 - Bow

I used several layers a ribbon and oval for my card. I colored the image with copics and popped up on dimensionals. I finished with this bow from my tote of items I am trying to use up.

Coneflowers


WT810 - blue

This background was created using a water stencil and glass bead gel. Once the gel was dry I added blue ink over to give the water look.

I stamped the porthole image on card stock then I stamped it again on scrap paper. I die cut the center of the scrap paper and laid it over the porthole. Next I stamped in the center of the porthole the seaside image. I then colored the porthole and seaside dock with copics and fussy cut the porthole.

I stamped school of fish, colored them with copics and fussy cut them. I finished with the birthday greeting and popped several of the images up on dimensionals.

Ocean Birthday

F4A552 - Blue Sapphire

My MIL needed a quick Thinking of you for her friend going through cancer treatments and this is about as quick as it gets.

I heat embossed the Impression Obsession flower background then sponged blue over it. I trimmed with the blue layer then added the thinking of you sentiment.

Thinking of You
IC772 - Soft Surroundings, I found this great Image on their Pintrist board and just love those dogs.

I need to make a few congratulations cards for my friend's pet shop and the dogs reminded me of this image.

The baseball BG was given to me by my friend Jan (Precious Kitty) and I sponged on yellow.

I stamped the dog and the sentiment and colored with copics. Cut the paper layers and mounted.

Week of 9/12/20 cards

 
FS709 - is the incredibly talented Barbara Sproatmeyer aka sproatmeyer. Wowza her gallery will blow you away. I found this CARD

I loved the large tree on the BG and I needed to make a sympathy card for my friends that have the pet shop. Their little wonderful Sara passed this week and they are heartbroken.

I stamped this great tree from Whimsy stamps and colored with copics. I added the silhouette dog and the sentiment and hand wrote in for Sara to personalize the card for them.

For Sara

CAS602 - What’s your favorite primary color? What’s you favorite secondary color? Use only those (and neutrals)

My favorite primary color is blue (any and all blues) and my secondary favorite color is green.

I die cut the base layer and die cut the lace layer and glued together. Then I die cut the ovals and stamped the sentiment and popped up on dimensionals.

I stamped the flowers and sponged the color on and shaped and layered. I finished with prills and stickles.

This year I was asked the night before mother's day to make 3 mother's day cards. Well I decided making cards last minute is not for me so I am making several in advance and will have them ready. I have already started giving out the father's day cards that I made in advance for next year so I imagine mother's day cards will also be scooped up too.

Mother's Day

MMTPT633 - Use a pattern somewhere on your card.

USEIT2020 Asian Paper

I am working my way through 2 pads of Asian themed wrapping paper that my MIL got me for cards. They are very thin and really are tough to put on cards so I am just using them up for stacks of Thinking of you cards. I have a few friends that have been asking for them to send out during this pandemic and these are quick.

I cut the layers down and stamped the sentiment and glued.

Thinking of You

WT809 - What's your angle - used an angled panel

USEIT2020 - Patches

I am still going through my tote trying to use stuff up and came across these two Disney patches. They are perfect for little kids and birthday cards.

Cut the papers, layered, stamped sentiments and hot glued the patches to the cards.

Disney Birthday
F4A551 - Too Cute to be Scary

I have several new Halloween DRS Designs images and wanted to play with them to see what they all looked like. I thought the quickest way to see them all stamped out was to just create a BG with them.

All of these were heat embossed in white on orange paper. I then cut the layers, added ribbon and added the sentiment popped up on dimensionals.

Trick or Treat

MIX398 - Healing

USEIT2020 - Heartfelt Creations card kit

I am trying to use up the last of the Heartfelt Creations card kits in my stash by the end of the year and when I saw today's MIX I remembered this cute monkey sitting back and relaxing. This is what I do when I need to focus on me, just sit back and relax. And having a drink is always nice too. 

I colored the images with copics and layered on the card base adding dimensionals. I finished off with stickles.

Relax

IC771 - Stuffed Safari where I found this cute FROG It looks like the frog in this DRS little boy image.

First I stamped the little boy and masked him.

I then stamped the mountains then stamped the trees in grey and then off set them and stamped them in green.

Finally I stamped the rocks and then I colored the scene with copics.

I finished with some clouds and hand drawn birds.

Little Boys

They seemed the perfect starting point for my scarecrow. I stamped the scarecrow and colored him with copics. Then I fussy cut him. The BG was stamped with the cornstalk and then the fence was added. Next I sponged the clouds and added copics for the grass.

I finished with the Happy Fall Ya'll sentiment and layered the papers.

Happy Fall Ya'll

F4A550 - Apples

This image was in my stack of images that I am working to use up by the end of 2021. I am getting a head start on coloring them and as I see challenges that they work I grab them for cards.

Berry Special
WT808 - Day Off Activity

USEIT2020 - Basket Embossed Paper

This great image was already stamped in my pile of images and was perfect for the challenge. I colored it with copics and popped up on Dimensionals.

Fishing Anyone
MMTPT632 - Make it pop

USEIT2020 - Arrows

Stamped the tree and deer and put down a circle for the sun. Sponged 2 yellows and orange to get the sun effect. Cut the DPs and layered. Finished with the arrow and novo drops.

IC769 - The Cross Decor and Design where I found this IMAGE

The image had the panel in the center so I added panels to my card. Additionally the back wall is brick and there is blue in the chair and rug.

I need 45 of these cards for our senior band members. Thank you to my mom for stamping all the flowers and leaves for me and adding the first layer of yellow (yes there is more than 1 layer of color on the flowers and leaves).

I cut the 3 panels each representing the 3 years in the band and their shows. I cut the black and gold layers and printed off the sentiments.

I added the additional colors to the flowers and leaves and cut them out and shaped. Then I added stickles and popped the sentiment on dimensionals.

Our school band has lost their competition year but we are still going to do our best to honor the graduating seniors.

I am so excited for the DTGD20 challenges and love making samples for the challenges! This is for Lori's (stampmomma) challenge.
