CT0219 - Fan Club Monthly Theme. This fits the monthly theme with these flowers. These are more thank you cards for my SIL to give out to her customers.

USEIT2019 - Flowers

I loved the layout I used on my cards for the IC challenge so I kept my same layout. Using the red and white theme from the FS card I found I had a bunch of red and white flowers in my stash to use up in the pile.

Shaped and layered the flowers, cut the scrap papers and layered. Stamped the sentiment, added the flowers and finished off with Nuvo Drops.

 TLC730 - Color on Kraft

I have really enjoyed coloring on kraft card stock here lately. I am also trying to get my Christmas cards done earlier this year. I need to make about 10 a month to have enough by Christmas. I thought this Unity girl colored in pencil on kraft would be fun.

Santa Baby
 WT728 - Fancy Folds

Die cut the hearts from a Memory Box die cut and layered on the card base, added the DP and the die cut Love. Created the easel with some layered hearts and dimensionals and finished off the inside with hearts that came out of the die cut strip.

USEIT2019 - Flowers

I am still trying to use up a ton of already punched flowers that have been sitting in my craft room for years. These flowers are about 4 years old.

The image looked beautiful on the black canvas so I used black CS. I spritzed white acrylic paint on the black CS then layered flowers in the corner. Heat embossed the sentiment and popped it on Dimensionals. Finished off with pearls.

 F4A468 - Wild Animal
USEIT2019 - Rooster
My sweet friends that own a little mom and pop pet store would totally say a rooster is wild. The one that they use to own would chase my friend's wife all around the farm. To this day we don't know what happened to that rooster but the stories that came about how he chased my friend were very funny.
This rooster was sent to me from my friend Jan (Precious Kitty) and I thought today's challenge was perfect to use him up and clear it from the pile of stuff on my table.
Cut the layers, embossed the teal, layered, added the doily and ribbon and finished with the sentiment and some already punched music notes.

Week of 2/2/19 Cards

 FS625 - Today's Featured Stamper is Susan Wymer aka LoveRibbons. She has a stunning gallery. I found this super fun CARD.

CCC19JAN - Added red glitter to front reindeer nose

USEIT2019 - Used up a stack of already die cut city Scapes

SCSCCJAN19 - January Fan Club

I loved the FS card with the silhouette of the broom against the blue. I immediately thought of Santa riding his sleigh in the night sky. Die cut some Santa Sleigh and Reindeer and sponged a night sky. The cityscapes were in already die cut sitting in my stack of die cuts to use up on my desk making these really quite quick to make once the sky was sponged. Finished off with some red glitter on the front reindeer and the sentiment.

Sleigh Ride
 MMTPT549 - If You Build It

This cute image was sent to me from Jan (Precious Kitty). I colored it with pencil and cut off just under the image to have her sit on the brick wall. used a flower from my stash on my desk and finished off with the sentiment.

Hello Friend
 WT725 - Get Dotty

I used the last of the dot paper on the first 4 cards so to complete my set I used striped paper on the last card. Not to worry there are still dots as I used a rectangle with dots to cut out the image on all of the cards. :)

Stamped the Unity image and colored with copics. Layered on DP.

I got behind in my pet sympathy cards in December so I put these together to try to get caught up with my donation goal.

Thinking of You
 F4A467 - I might use that...

USEIT2019 - Lace flowers & Vintage Image

Well this is a challenge I need to do because I have a whole pile of stuff on my table that I am trying to use up by the end of the year that ended up there because I said those words. LOL!

This vintage image was in a box of stuff my mom gave me for my birthday. I am not usually one to use images that are already printed and colored but when I saw this image I immediately thought of my sister. This is totally her style. With the vintage feel I really thought these lace flowers worked well with the image.

Layered and finished off with pearls. Yep that quick.

Vintage Image
IC687 - All Posters where I found this great Poster.

I loved the skyline sunset colors.

USEIT2019 - Cityscapes

I am trying to use up a large pile of images, die cuts, stickers and whatnot that are on my table. Earlier in the week I used a huge stack of these city scapes to make Christmas cards. Well I still had a couple left. I thought today's IC challenge was perfect when I saw the sunset in that poster.

Masked off a section of the card base and sponged the skyline colors. glued down the cityscapes and stamped the sentiment.
