Mother's day

F4A587 - Texture

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.

Finished the flowers with prills and stickles.

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.

I embossed the red and blue with mortar hats and stamped the owl. I then colored the owl with copics and popped it up on dimensionals.

Tough Guy

 WT841 - Earth Day

The foil on my card is recycled from covering a food dish. Once it was no longer needed for the dish I washed off any remaining food and laid it out to dry.

I then glued the foil down on card stock and ran it through with an emboss folder.

Graduate 2021


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.

Stamped the flowers and shaped them adding stamen to the centers and hot gluing them. Die cut the decorative card base and stamped, cut and colored the swans. I finished with the anniversary sentiment on the die cut from the label collection.

Winter Silhouette

 CAS633 - Silhouette

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.


Thank You

 FS740 - This weeks incredibly talented Featured Stamper is Mary Ellen (cr8iveme)! Her gallery is full of inspiration. I found this cute Card

USEIT2021 - Asian wrapping paper

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.

Holy Week


I know I am a week behind showing this card but I just love this new HOLY WEEK RELIGIOUS ICONS - 652H stamp. Once it was stamped I colored it with copics. I then cut the image and layered it on purple card stock to pick up the cross image.

I then was inspired by the fern leaves and die cut a bunch of different leaves and layered the image over those leaves and popped the image on dimensionals.

I finished the card off with the 1 LINE EASTER BLESSINGS - 1029D.

Thank you so much for stopping by to check out my card this week.

I needed to use this beach scene image from my stash of images that were stamped needing to be colored and added to cards and the Sunshine song was perfect to inspire the way I colored it.

I masked a circle then sponged the sky and added orange toward the center. I used a copic for the water and then cut out the oval and mounted on dimensionals and finished with the birthday sentiment on the Ombre designer paper.

When I saw the WTUI challenge I remembered I had this cute dog and cat image in my stack of images I needed to get colored and used on a card. I actually had 2 of them so I colored them both up and made 2 cards.

Once colored I used a wonky die cut border to cut the layer and added some  designer paper under it.

Grad 2021 Purple & White


FS739 - This weeks incredibly talented Featured Stamper is Cara (Cara Denise)!

I found this gorgeous CARD

WT838 - GRAD

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.

My nephew's school colors are purple and white so I used purples to create the cap from Kitchen Sink and also for the sentiment and numbers.

I die cut the main panel and cut the layers similar to Cara's main panel with the banner behind the focal panel popped up on dimensionals.

This was really fun to make. I stamped the Tails Up Bunny and colored it with copics. I then stamped the ONE LINE HAPPY EASTER - 665B and die cut the sentiment and bunny. I left the sentiment in the die cut and sponged some  purple while it was in the die cut.
