 FS646 - Julee Tilman aka Vervegirl! I found this great CARD. It reminded me of the coffee set from Heartfelt Creations.

I have had this old card kit for many years and thought it was time to put this card together. Colored the coffee cup and sponged color on all the layers. Colored the flowers and leaves and shaped the cup, flowers, leaves and spoon. Layered out the card and popped the cup, steam, and spoon on dimensionals. Added the flowers and prills and finished off with stickles.

My son went out west with his Sorry for your lossgrandma on vacation and brought home 2 bags full of feathers for me. I thought they would be great on sympathy cards.

CC745 - This weeks colors

I needed a graduation card for my husband's cousin and their school colors are red and blue. I found this fancy graduation fold on Pintrist and it was perfect because the bottom is shaped like a baseball diamond. He has a baseball scholarship to a college in Boston so this is perfect for him.

Stamped the swirly image and stamped the butterfly. Fussy cut the butterfly and glued over the swirly image. Cut the layers, sponged the edge of the cream layer and finished off with the lace.

What is perfect for Summer? Enjoying ice cream!

I recently made a card similar to this in red and my aunt loved it and asked if I could make her one. I dug in my stash of papers and found this already created stenciled pink and glass bead gel paper. PERFECT!

Colored the little girl, cut the layers, punched the balloon, stamped the sentiment and sponged the sentiment and balloon.

IC707 - Brick House Fabrics where I found this great Fabric.

USEIT2019 - wrapping paper & scallop circles

The colors in the fabric reminded me of this wrapping paper in my stash that I am trying to get used up. My MIL purchased 2 packs of wrapping paper thinking it would work great for my cards. Well of course I can use it for I put it in my stack of use it up items.

Each sheet of the wrapping paper makes 12 cards. So I cut down this sheet, cut card bases, cut a white layering piece and glued down. Stamped the sentiments and used a stack of punched scallop circles also out of the stack of items I am trying to use up this year.
