Week of May 20th

 FS589 - Wanda but she's known around here as wendy2512.

I found this incredible CARD.

My husband's co-worker asked for an anniversary card and when I saw the FS card I just knew that was what I wanted for the anniversary inspiration.

I embossed the base layer and layered in pink on the base. Then I stamped and layered the sentiment. Finished off with some green ivy and flowers with nuvo drops.

 MMTPT513 - Honorary teapotter

Used this great teapot die cut that Jan (Precious Kitty) sent me, die cut the white border and layered purple with white heat embossed sentiment. Tied the bow and added flowers coming out of the teapot. Finished the flowers off with white nuvo drops.

Teapot Tuesday

Stamped the magazine page with a spool of thread image and heat embossed with Gold. Cut down the layers and stamped the sentiment.

The magazine page is a quilt image and up close you can see the quilt pattern. My MIL is a quilter and she let me borrow her magazine to take a page so it was only fitting that I made her a card for her stash with a sewing theme. :)

Thank You Sew Much
IC651 - Walls Need Love - I found this great Removable Wallpaper .

I loved the rows of hearts on the wallpaper. Punched several hearts in white then one in red. Sponged the red heart with a bit of black to give it some dimension in color. Put all the hearts on dimensionals, stamped the sentiment and finished the red heart with a gem.

Anniversary Love

 MMTPT512 - Sending Comfort

For me anything blue is comforting. I love the color and any time I see it on a card it is comforting to me.

This image was sent to me in an exchange. I colored it with copics and added nuvo drops to the flower centers. Cut down the image and layered on some teal and added some strips of DP. Finished off with the sentiment.

Copics used:
Blue Flowers
WT688 - Spotlight on Silhouettes

Sponged with distress oxides the sunset colors. Stamped the Unity image. Used this great fairy silhouette that Miss Susie sent me in a tea party exchange. Thanks Susie. I also layered her and did not glue the wings down on the second layer of her so that the wings open.

Only Imagine

Week of May 6th

I have had to hold off on posting cards to my blog because several were for Mother's day and birthdays and I needed to make sure people did not see them. So getting caught up this week.

 FS587 - Congratulations to Connie {aka Conniecrafter} on being our Featured Stamper this week! I found this CARD.

I love the card on an angle and ran with the layout. I needed a few cards and this was a great way to make a few different cards with the same great layout.

Grabbed my scrap paper bin and cut down the DP. Layered the card and added the ribbon as Connie had hers however I did not add the tied bow. I also did not add an image I added flowers from my stash of punched flowers that I am trying to use up. I trimmed the ribbon with paper punched lace and added nuvo drops to the center of the flowers.

This was great to make a few cards with this layout and the layout and layering makes for a wonderful card for any occasion. I added a birthday sentiment, wedding sentiment and mother's day sentiment to each of the three cards.

Trio of Cards
 MMTPT511 - Shabby Chic

Stamped the sentiment and layered on dimensionals, stamped the flowers, colored, layered and shaped. Added prills. Layered the Dp and distressed the edges finished off with the ribbon and bow.

I loved the texture in the top of the dress. Running with that I embossed the purple CS and stamped the Unity image then colored her with copics. Die cut the edge and layered on the embossed purple layer. Finished off with ribbon and sentiment.

Layered the dies with the black at the top and black around the center of the large square. Since I did not have the die cut I had to fussy cut the pieces.
Stamped this perfect sentiment stamp from Dare 2 B Artzy. It is my go to stamp for pet sympathy cards. Die cut several different dogs and added to the card fronts.
