Week of 3/30/19 Cards

No challenge for this card. My son is in the indoor marching band and their uniforms were made off of a picture. I had that picture turned in to this custom stamp from Magnuson Custom Stamps. Their theme is Leave No Trace.

The band placed first at State competition and will move on to Nationals in 2 weeks. There are 53 kids in the band...I think I need to get to making a few more cards so we can have one for each kid. LOL! Anyone want to help me? :)


 FS633 - the ever talented Sharon Madson aka smadson. I have loved her gallery for a very long time. I found this Beauty.

USEIT2019 - Balloons

I am still trying to use up a large stack of balloons on my table along with a ton of other items and today's FS Sharon had a wonderful card to inspire me to use more of the balloons on these cards.

The red balloons I heat embossed white dots. Then used some DPs and die cut the white layer. Added bakers twine and the sentiment.

 FS632 - This weeks amazing Featured Stamper LizBeth1976 aka Liz. I found this beautiful CARD.

USEIT2019 - Sweater, Butterflies

I loved the orange and white in Liz's card. Liz had an angle theme going on in the center of her card so I mirrored it with the white and orange layers. I used butterflies rather than the dragon fly and added the oval layer.

 MMTPT556 - Old School

Old items used - 2 old punches, old scrap paper and older set of Heartfelt Creations.

Stamped the Heartfelt Creations Monkey and colored with copics. Used some really old papers in my scrap bin for the border and used a boarder punch that I have not used in a very long time. Grabbed flower pieces from my pile off my desk that I am trying to use up by the end of the year and finished the center of the flower with a punch that I have had for over a year and never used.

Hello Monkey
 WT732 - How does your garden grow

This rose image was sent to me in a Teapot Tuesday exchange. I colored it up with pencil and cut down the layers. The layer under the rose was embossed and also sent to me in a Teapot Tuesday. Popped the rose and sentiment layer on dimensionals over the embossed layer.

Sorry for your loss

IC694 - Country Door where I found these beautiful Glasses.

USEIT2019 - Sticker sheets

The gold in the glasses is really quite stunning so I used the gold shiny paper for the matting.

The bottle layer is 12 inch long stickers used in scrapbooks. I no longer scrapbook and thought they would make great BGs on cards. Layered the stickers, cut the layers and mounted. Finished off with the bride and groom die cut and flowers all sitting on my desk.

USEIT2019 - Stamped fabric, flower & Vines

Still trying to use stuff up that is on my table. A while back I stamped a large stack of fabric with this BG stamp from IO and now I am trying to use them up. It was a super fun technique that I am going to try again with a different stamp. I also need to use up a very large stack of die cut flowers and these die cut leaf swirls. Olga's card was a perfect inspiration for this card.

Used the stamped fabric for the base layer, added the ribbon, shaped the flower and layered.
