Scotty Dog
 WT694 - Coronation Day

Stamped the Stampendous kitty and colored with colored pencil. The tiara was sent to me in a teapot Tuesday exchange and I thought this yellow kitty needed to wear it.

The sentiment is computer generated. My friend that gave me a yellow kitty will be getting this for Christmas this year. I give him a yellow kitty card every year for Christmas and this is so perfect. The inside is going to say, "Thank you for giving me to a family that understands". LOL!

Princess Kitty
IC656 - today is Serengeti Fashions where I found this stunning TOP.

I loved the black and silver and that is what I based my card on. Used two different DPs and layered. Added some punched trim. Heat embossed the sentiment and the hearts and layered and finished off with the ribbon.

I think this makes a great guy anniversary card for my DH.

With Love

Week of June 10th Cards

 MMTPT516 - Frame It

This darling Heggie was sent to me in a teaparty exchange. I colored him with pencils and sponged in the clouds and grass. The frame was also sent to me and it was ivory so I sprayed it with black spray and then found it would not dry so I used modge podge and got it to stick to the frame. Finished off with a heart sentiment and some hearts sitting on my desk.

 WT692 - World of Sponges

Printed The Paper Shelter image and colored with copics. Sponged in the BG. Die cut the sentiment 3 times in white and layered the gold die cut sentiment on top. Layered the image on dimensionals and die cut some music notes. Finished with the bow tied ribbon.

This card was made for my son's band director who was to retire this year. Well I guess he likes teaching because he is staying another year. So I guess I will hold this card for when he does retire. And even though their show last year was about the brick wall this will still be perfect for his card because every year he tells the kids the brick wall and the importance of each brick and how it holds up the wall. If you want to hear about the Brick Wall and the story behind it you can learn about it on YouTube here: Brick Wall 

Retirement Congratulations

Copics Used:

IC654 - we are going to the Vera Bradley store online to be inspired where I found this Planner.

Week of June 3rd Cards

 FS591 - the incredibly talented Janja {aka Janja Albreht}. I found this Card . The name said it all and I went with it.

I used a lighter lavender. When I saw the name of the card I thought of these giant leather flowers my mom gave me about 10 years ago. I am trying to use stuff up and these needed to be used.

Cut down the layers and stamped the sentiment. Finished off with adding the leather flowers. Quick cards and totally uses up some of these large flowers taking up space in my craft room.

Week of May 27th Cards

FS590 - Today's featured stamper is Sylvia aka Zylvia and I found this wonderful Card.

I was inspired by the colors on the card and created this card for my friend that had to put down their faithful friend. Stamped the leash and die cut it layering the pieces. Stamped the sentiment and die cut it with the bone shape and sponged the edges. Die cut his name and layered the CS.

This is going to the friend that I do all my pet sympathy card donations. He sends them out to so many and I thought he needed one for his pup.

CAS483 - Remembering - a couple of years ago my sister had a birthday party for her little guy and she got a bounce house. Now that is fun but what was funny was she set it up in her living room. It seriously took up the entire room.

So here is a birthday card for her other little guy for this year with a bounce house on the front.

This bounce house was in my stack of stuff to use up. It is a giant sticker. Super fast card cut down the layers and added the sticker.

MMTPT514 - Sing, Sing a Song - Bette Midler - The Rose

Stamped the Heartfelt Creations rose and sponged on the purples and greens, die cut and layered on the Heartfelt Creations corner die cut. Stamped the sentiment on a tag and added some additional green leaves. Finished off with the ribbon.

I can't get enough of this super cute Heggie / Porcupine image. I really think it is just too cute. Stamped the image on craft and colored with pencils. Finished off with the sentiment popped on dimensionals.

F4A432 - Baby It's Cold Outside

CCC18JUL - Cool off adding snow to our cards

I am trying to put together the stacks of card kits I purchased from Heartfelt Creations as they are taking up a lot of room in my craft cave and really just need to be made so I can use them. This is from one of the great kits. They come stamped and cut and all you have to do is color flowers, shape and layer. When I need quick cards these are totally super quick since they are already stamped and cut.

Colored the flowers and package, shaped and layered. Sponged the edge of the frame and layered on dimensionals. added the sentiment with some sponging. Shaped the flowers, added prills and layered. Finished off with some glitter.

IC652 - Caron's Beach House where I found this great Pillow.

I needed to get my next set of pet sympathy donation cards made and today's inspiration was so perfect.

I liked the blue wave behind the pup. Used 3D paint to color on the blue and die cut the dogs. Finished off with the sentiment and a few nuvo drops.
