Week of 6/6/20 Cards

 FS695 - This weeks incredibly talented Featured Stamper is Chrysi McDonald! Chrysi, better known around here as Knoxville8625. I found this amazing CARD

I loved the flowy skirt on that image but don't own the image. So I used these flowy banners instead. Also the bold Red White and Blue was perfect for this image.

I stamped the images in blue then colored the banners with copics.

I used a stars stamp to create the BG on blue CS.

I popped the image on dimensionals to finish the card.

Stars and Stripes
 CAS588 - Blue & Summer

This great image was sent to me on watercolor paper and I thought she would look great in blue. Water colored her and cut the layers. Added embossing to the right side and finished with some flowers from my table and Nuvo Drops.

 MMTPT619 - napkins, doilies, and something sweet

Used this great napkin from my stash with the napkin technique. Stamped the Penny Black image and colored with copics. Cut the other layers and added the doily. Finished with some flowers and Nuvo Drops.

WT795 - A Clean Start

Heat embossed with black the daisy image from The Ton. Used bleach to clear out the brown card stock color and added dots of bleach to the center of the daisy. Finished with the sentiment.

Daisy Sympathy

IC757 - Design Pool is our inspiration this week and I found this great INSPIRATION

USEIT2020 - Stickers

Seeing the GYM letters on the back wall made me think of all the sticker letters I have from when I use to scrapbook. I have been trying to come up with a way to use them on my cards and I thought that the GYM letters on the back wall were perfect to inspire using a bunch of letters on the card base. I covered the card bases with a bunch of the letters then used various die cuts and other stickers for some fun graduation cards.

  1. First of all, thank you so much Lisa for commenting on my cards. I appreciate your time and I look forward to seeing what you think. So again, thank you!

    Now, on to your gorgeous creations! My favorite is your Daisy Sympathy. The center of that sunflower drew me in like a hummingbird looking for sweet nectar. I stared at it for quite some time before reading on. LOL! It sound like I exaggerate, but I really don't. That bleach really added the detail to that flower center. I have played with bleach before, but I am too impatient. I want to see results immediately, and sometimes it takes a while for the bleach to react. At least that has been my experience. I like the watercolor bleed of the brown onto the sunflower leaves. It looks so natural.

    My second favorite is your Teapot card. The napkin you used is so beautiful and colorful. I have only tried one card with a napkin. I'm going to have to go and look up that technique again. I love how you added the doily under your beautifully colored image. It gives it that table setting look. It brings back memories of my mom making doilies.

    All of your cards this week are beautiful, but I felt compelled to comment on those two. I am no expert, and I tend to get wordy, but I do hope you don't mind. Thank you for sharing and inspiring me.

  2. Thank you so much Aracelli. That bleached sunflower was super simple the brown cardstock worked perfect and I had a brand new bottle of bleach. I have learned the newer the bleach the quicker it works.

    I love the napkin technique. I can find super cute napkins and they take so very little to dress up a card. Sometimes the napkin is all a cards needs and a sentiment and viola fast cute card. :)

  3. Great cards! My favorite is def "Blue and summer" SO elegant! Love it!!
    Hugs from your new follower :)
