Week of 11/12/17 Cards


 FS562 is the very talented Tapdancer, I found this incredible CARD.

I needed a few cards for some Eagle Scouts and Tapdancers card was wonderful for inspiration. Printed these eagle images and colored with copics. Cut down and layered some stripped DP on the bottom as Tapdancer had. I did not have star DP so I used polka dot on the top and finished off with some stars in silver DP.

Die cut the moon circle and punched some additional circles. Popped the top layer of the moon on dimensionals and the image on dimensionals.

Week of 10/29/17





WT660 - It's in My Favorites (I was the volunteer hostess for the challenge to create a card from a favorite card on SCS)

I love so many cards and love adding them to my favorites and going through that gallery to oh and ah. When I get to CASE one it is so hard to pick just one. Well this is a challenge for me to select just one and today I chose this CARD from Arizona Maine. It is so elegant. 

I punched the border with a lace Martha Stewart punch and put a grey paper under it to match the grey stamped flower and sentiment. I finished the flower off with a liquid pearl center and added the liquid pearls to the lace flowers and put stickles on the top flower.

Happy Anniversary Favorite 

My wonderful friend Jan (Precious Kitty on SCS) recently started making stamps and I really love this fun apple set. It was perfect for the Teapot Tuesday challenge.

MMTPT484 - An Apple, The Big Apple, or...

This apple image and super funny sentiment is from our fellow friend Jan (Precious Kitty). She recently started creating stamps and they are great.

This funny sentiment had me in stitches so I had to add faux stitching to my card.

Stamped the apple using red on the apple and green on the stem. Added stickles to the apple and faux stitching to the panel. Stamped the sentiment and added faux stitching. Layered and put the sentiment on dimensionals. Finished off with the button and bakers twine.

Thrown Apple?

Stamped the house mouse image and colored with copics. Die cut the image layers with ODBD stitched circles and popped the image up on dimensionals. Used some scrap DPs and embossed the white layer with a Dominoes EF. Finished off with the birthday sentiment on diminsionals.

CAS453 - Oh Christmas Tree

This great image was sent to me from a friend but it was white. So I grabbed a black spray and sprayed it black. Finished off with the sentiment embossed in white. The green DP is many trees. My MIL gave me this tree paper many years ago and it reminds me of her Christmas tree farm. I thought it would work perfect for this family pulling their tree out on top of their card.

I finished off the card with a few punched show flakes and added stickes to them.

FS560 - This weeks Featured stamper is the incredibly talented Jennie Maier, better known as CraftyJennie. I found this amazing CARD and just knew I needed to use that for my inspiration.

I stamped the field flowers and wheat in yellow, brown and tan then cut the panel apart. Layered on green to pick up the green in Halloween.

Funny thing about this pumpkin...On Thursday our office decided to do a coloring contest. Well Us crafters can't just color something without putting it on a card - right? So I am including the entire card for my entry. LOL! 

The pumpkin is colored with copics and popped up on dimensionals.

SC668 - Today's sketch

This super cute image was sent to me in a Teapotter exchange. I thought she was so adorable. Colored her with copics and popped her on dimensionals.

The netting is actually a very old paper. I have had for about 15 years. I am slowly trying to use it up and I thought it would look great with the mermaid. The fish are also about 15 years old. I bought a sheet of old underwater images for scrapbooking years ago and never used them. I am trying to pull out all these old items and use them up. I finished off the card with sequins and Nuvo drops.
