Hand Drawn Basket


The IC599 challenge - Beautiful Baskets...I was so drawn to this Basket that I just had to draw it so I could use it on a card. I have an aunt that this is totally her style basket and I just had to create this card for her.

Drew the basket and colored with pencils. Fussy cut the basket. Sponged in the grey BG and stamped the birthday sentiment sponging while it was still in the die cut frame. Popped the basket and sentiment on dimensionals.

This aunt also really prefers clean and simple cards and I am sure she will love this card.

The F4A379 challenge - No Stamps

The MIX226 challenge - Inkless 

I think this meets both challenges since I did not stamp anything. I did use ink but only to color the inside of the EF for my stars so they would stand out.

Many paper layers of red, white blue and craft. Die cut the blue and DP stars and the word Thanks out of silver glitter DP. Finished the edge of the blue star with white gel Pen and added some silver liquid pearls to the edge of the navy blue strip.

Little Guy


The CAS430 challenge - Memories

As a kid one of my favorite things to play with was bubbles. I could spend hours blowing bubbles. When I had my little guy I got bubbles for him and every kind of bubble maker I could find. I also took him to a science museum that had a fun bubble ring that you could bring up around you to surround yourself with a bubble.

Stamped the image and colored with copics. Used the memory box circle die cut and put it behind the image then trimmed the image so the circles would peek out. Added some punched circles out of white sparkle DP on dimensionals and finished off with some stickles on some bubbles.

Christmas Coffee


 
    The IC598 Challenge - Autumn of the Sew Paper Paint Blog, I found this amazing Card. I loved the layout and the way the colors looked on the layers of CS. I used the new distress oxide inks that I just got yesterday to create the green and red layer. Then using the TH corner die cut on the red layer. The coffee cup was stamped and colored with pencil. Used additional distress oxide ink on another white CS and die cut the spellbinders poinsettias adding liquid pearls to the centers. Finished off with some punched snowflakes, sprigs and a gold die cut.

The DINSP0517 challenge - Inspiration from the photo there is a coffee image that says coffee to go and since I was already inspired by the coffee on the image I thought I could tie in the coffee from the image.

The CCC17MAR challenge - Poinsettias I am way behind in my Christmas cards already so I used today's inspiration to change the card out to a Christmas card to add to my stash.

 The WT636 challenge - Hardware & Metal Accents

To create this image I applied the ink to the stamp with a marker for the green, brown and black. Then stamped it on the CS. Filled in the colors with copics once the image was stamped.

Stamped the wheat and cut to put behind the tractor. finished off with some gear accents that are die cut from a tomato paste tube that Sabrina sent me in a Teapot Tuesday exchange. They really die cut beautifully and looked great on this card.

This is another of the cards my aunt asked me to create for my uncle for next year. They live on a farm so this image is perfect for him.

Grandma's Flowers

 The IC597 challenge - The wonderful Etsy site Create the Cut is our inspiration today. I found this beautiful blue and white floral.

I am always drawn to blue and white and that image just pulled me in today. I don't water color yet on my cards (maybe some day I will get there).

Stamped the Heartfelt Creations flowers and colored in blues and colored the leaves in greens. Stamped the sentiment and die cut it with a Spellbinders banner. Left the banner in the die cut and shaded it with blue to pick up from the flowers. Put the banner on Dimensionals and finished off with some sequins and liquid pearls in the center of the flowers and added some score lines around the card.

This is headed to my grandma for Mother's day. We are taking her out to lunch today and I think she will just love putting this on her shelf in her room.

Happy Mother's day to all the wonderful moms.

CCC17JUN - religious theme

I love the layout of the card and kept with a very similar layout using an oval die cut rather than tearing the edge.

The wood was done with an EF and adding brown to the inside. Colored the image with copics and added a gem to the inside of the star. The image is popped on dimensionals. The edge of the image I used a pin to punch the holes.

Happy Anniversary


Today's FS535 Challenge - JustCallMeNana is our Featured Stamper. She has a stunning gallery. I found this beauty: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...&ppuser=243673. 

My dear sweet friend asked me for an anniversary card for his wife. They are celebrating their 20 year anniversary. I loved the lacy edge on Lynda's card and the colors.

I die cut two lacy layers with Gina Marie dies. Then I used the Heartfelt Creations heart and die cut the white and purple heart layers. I put the banner in the center of the heart rather than the bottom as the FS had and moved the flowers to the bottom.

I finished the flowers off with stickles and a ribbon.

Happy Anniversary

Mother's Flowers

For the IC596 challenge - Book Art

Heartfelt Creations sells wonderful fold out card bases. I used one of their bases to do my book art. 

Used several DPs for the 8 different pages on the fold out card trimming and using the HFC lacy edge die cut to add some fun cuts. Stamped the wonderful Sunflower pail image and colored with copics and added some stickles. The image and oval are on dimensionals.

Used the sunflowers stamp and dies to add additional flowers and some leaves. Stamped them and added layers of greens for the leaves and brown, reds, yellows and coral for the sunflowers. Finished the sunflowers with prills.

The toughest part is lining up the die cuts on the layers to match the shape. This is no easy task.

This is for my mom for mother's day. She has been told no visiting my SCS or blog until after Mother's day. Oh the suspense is going to kill her but I spent over 4 hours on this card so she will just have to wait to see it in person. :)

Thanks Audrie for the fun challenge it pushed me to use one of these fold out cards that I got last Christmas. :)

For the F4A376 challenge - It's CAS To Me

For the MIX223 challenge - Showers and/or Flowers

This wonderful image is a premade image that I received over 2 years ago in a teapot exchange. I am trying to push myself to use up stuff in my stash. It is tough for me to now want to add all kinds of stuff to a card and especially when I did not color the image so to me this is CAS for the F4A challenge.

Cut the image down and rounded the corners of the layers. I also used up the bleeding hearts sitting on my desk. I thought with the hanging flowers on the image to add a bit of my touch I would add some hanging bleeding hearts. The hearts are from Heartfelt Creations, they are stamped and die cut and the colors sponged on and finished off with some stickles.
