Week of 1/16/21 Cards


CAS620 - Case Yourself

I chose this Card from way back in my gallery to Case. I loved the single tree on the front and decided to do a single tree.

I used the super cute DRS Designs image of the sea shells Christmas tree image for my focal rather than embossing a tree. I then colored with copics and added the sentiment. I cut the layers and matted a couple of the colors for the base.

FS727 - This weeks incredibly gifted Featured Stamper is Fifi Soleil (Jesuisjeune). I found this super cute Card

USEIT2021 - Heartfelt Creations card kit

When I saw Fifi's cute house I remembered I have this shaped house in my stack of Heartfelt Creations card kits that I wanted to use up. It is spring rather than Christmas and the flowers are 3 dimensional rather than flat.

I sponged the colors on the house layers and the flowers and leaves. I then shaped the flowers and leaves and added dimensionals to the roof and sentiment and finished off with stickles.

Friendship Blooms

MMTPT651 - smile goes a long way

USEIT2021 - Panda

I needed to use up this panda from my tote and he was just perfect for the tea party. I cut some scrap DPs from my stash and created the layout behind the panda and added him.


SC836 - This weeks sketch

USEIT2021 - This white die cut was in my tote of items to use up and it is perfect for today's sketch

I stamped the sentiment and cut the layers. I added a red CS to the center.

With Sympathy
WT827 - monochromatic

USEIT20221 - Flourish dies

When I saw the challenge I remembered I had a bunch of flourish dies in my tote to get used up. I grabbed coordinating paper and embossed the base layer then die cut a bunch of butterflies in the same paper and layered. Stamped the sentiment in the same colors and finished off with pearls.

MIX416 - Well, Wood You

USEIT2021 - Heartfelt Creations card kit

CCC21JAN - Cardinal

When I saw today's MIX challenge I remembered I had this Heartfelt Creations card kit that I am trying to use up. It has a wood gate stamped in it.

I sponged the edges of the gate and used copics to color the bird, holly and deer. I then layered the elements and added stickles to give a snow effect.

Christmas Deer
F4A569 - All About You

WT827 - Monochromatic

USEIT2021 - Asian wrapping paper

When I saw today's Free for All I remembered I had this sheet of blue and white Asian wrapping paper that I need to get used up. I love blue and white cards. It is my favorite color combination.

I cut the wrapping paper which makes 16 cards and added a dark blue CS to trim the paper. I finished with many different sentiments to add to my stash for when I need to grab a quick card to send.

Thank You

IC789 - Tim Holtz Sizzix Board where I found this great Inspiration

I loved the cute layout and the little bugs so I used bees and heat embossed honey combs on the top. I water colored red and did an ombre down the card stock. then I stamped some bees forward and mirror imaged to get some facing the other direction.

I finished the card with the sentiment and Yellow Pearls.

Bee My Valentine


  1. Please tell me I don’t have to choose a favorite this week! I love seashells... the panda is SO cute...those bees! Oh my- what an adorable group this week!!!! But I think the inspiration I’m feeling today is in the monochromatic category. I love the neatness and simplicity but I forget about it-so I’m going to go make a card NOW! Thank you Lisa!

    1. Yeah! I am so thrilled to inspire your creativity!!! I do love how those monochromatic cards came out. I needed to get a bunch of already die cut vines used out of my tote and creating monochromatic cards and making them sympathy cards was a great way to use the entire stack of those vines to get them out of my tote. I hope you can continue to be inspired by my cards sweet friend!
