Week of 10/26/19 Cards

 FS663 - the very talented Featured Stamper! Claudette, is better known around here as lamoore. I found this beautiful CARD.

I was drawn to the pansy flowers. I used the Heartfelt Creations Pansy flowers and created them in blue. Stamped the baby feet in versamark and heat embossed them in blue. Layered on the lacy die cut and added some additional already made small roses.

This card was also inspired by an old card I made for a family who lost a little boy. This one is made for a family that recently lost twins. My heart is breaking that I had to make another for such a loss. Praying this card can bring some comfort to the family.

The fabric Christmas tree reminded me of these elf pieces of fabric my MIL gave me last year that she cut off a quilt she made. She thought I could use the scraps for a card.

I used spray glue to glue the fabric to CS and then used DP to layer over. I fussy cut around the foot and pulled it out of the oval. Finished off with some die cut ever green branches and punched twigs and bows.

Week of 10/12/19 Cards

 FS661 - the super talented Featured Stamper:
*KARI B.*. I found this amazing card.

I loved the colors and the soaring bird. It reminded me of this image from the Ton. This is 13 layering stamps to make this eagle. Well while I had them all lined up in my Misti I thought it best to stamp a few because it is really super tiny stamps to make this amazing image.

Stamped the eagle and mountains. Sponged the sky. Stamped the sentiment and mounted the eagle off the card on dimensionals.

This is my mom's birthday card this year. She loves eagles.

Just for You
 CAS554 - For the Boys

Printed off the Spit happens from my computer and cut out the section for the music die cut. Stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment and layered on dimensionals with the red layer on bottom. Added the die cut music and trumpet. Finished off the trumpet with clear nuvo drops to give the trumpet shine.

This is for my son's birthday. He got a red pocket trumpet for his birthday and I thought this was perfect for his birthday with the trumpet.

Spit Happens

Sponged the colors of the rainbow with distress oxide ink and sponged the bokeh dots with white craft ink. Sponged the distress oxides again over those dots and added more dots so they were whiter than the first layer.

Happy Birthday Uncle Neil
IC723 - Cox & Cox UK where I found these amazing Angel Wings.

A few years back my best friend worked really hard to pass an anti-bully law in the state of Indiana. She continues the fight to help keep kids safe in schools and prevent suicide. I look up to her and her efforts.

She asked me to make some cards with Angel Wings to give to parents who have lost children to suicide. Today's inspiration was perfect for these cards.

I found an online coloring page and fussy cut out the wings. Embossed the bottom layer and added a DP behind it on the edges. popped the wings up on dimensionals and added the ribbon. Finished off with punched purple hearts and stickles on the hearts.

I will be making angel wings every year for my friend as she needs them. I hope the can bring some much needed love to the families that they are headed.
