Oh how I love adding shaped flowers, prills and die cuts that all add textures to cards
My MIL asked for Dogwood flowers for her Mother's Day card. Sure thing.
I stamped, shaped, colored and layered the flowers. Die cut the base and the gold layer and added dimensionals to the sentiment layer.

WT842 - All Taped up, use tape
My niece asked me a long time ago to create an Eeyore Nurse card for her mom Well I finally got around to it.
This is a free coloring page that I printed and colored with copics. I then stamped the sentiment and cut it out. I used several DPs and a washi tape to create the base layer. I finished off with 4 punched hearts (there are 4 family members in my nieces family). and a medical button my mom gave me as her mom is a nurse.

MMTPT666 - Sylvia Beach Hotel where I was inspired by This Room
I am trying to crank out as many graduation cards as I can as I have 3 family members graduating this year and one of them their school colors is red, white and blue. Many family members have asked for graduation cards and I am trying to supply them with cards. So this card will not be part of the exchange.

|FS741 - This weeks incredibly talented Featured Stampepr is Heather Freeman, better known around here as heather freeman. I found this cute Snowflake Box|
I had a thought in my head for my son's graduation to make an exploding box and put pictures in it. I have been combing through pictures for a very long time looking for just the right pictures and also put pictures in from each of his school years. The main pictures are his school years and the secondary pictures are of his family members that have been a part of his growing up most of those family members have passed so this is how we are including them in his graduation.
I used the Divinity Designs exploding box and cut the box in black and cut the matting layers in gold for his school colors.
You ask why is this a 5 well let's just say that trying to get the images the right size and also include the pictures of those family members so that the image was recognizable is a huge challenge. Thankfully hubby still loves me after the hours it took him to help with these images.

I am honored to host today's Clean and Simple challenge. Today we are adding silhouettes to our cards. I just love this cute skating snowman and thought he would be great added to a snowy scene.
I started by stamping the snowman and then I masked him. Then I used an old bauble stencil and stamped the tree silhouette in the stencil. I then sponged on the colors to create the scene in the stencil.

I am trying to use up the Asian wrapping paper my MIL gave me 2 years ago. It is beautiful paper but really thin. Each sheet makes 16 cards and they have come in handy during the pandemic. When I saw Mary Ellen's card I thought putting some pets on the Asian paper was a great idea.
I cut the sheets and trimmed them with black. I die cut a bunch of dogs and pupped them up on dimensionals.
I add many different sentiments to the cards so that they can be used for lots of different occasions.

Her photo seemed purple to me and I needed to get a few more cards made for my amazing nephew. He is graduating this year and has already enlisted in the Navy.
