Take Pride


FS747 - This weeks incredibly talented Featured Stamper is Diane Malcor!. Her gallery is full of gorgeous cards and amazing Scrapbook pages. I found this wonderful tribute to Memorial Day

I loved the red, white and blue and needed another graduation card for our cousin's daughter. Her school colors are red, white and blue and today's inspiration was the perfect push for me to make another one.

I did die cut inlay and heat embossed the Unity sentiment.

Billiard Birthday


IC808 - Picture Frames where I found this Frame Inspiration

I focused on the color of the frame and framed my image with the felt similar color to the frame.

This DRS Design image is one of my favorite because I helped design it. I will never tire of it as I have many family members that play who have asked me to make cards with this image.

I colored the image with copics. cut down, layered on the felt and added the sentiment and an additional billiard ball to the sentiment strip.

MIX435 - Liquid Metal (Paper Glaze used)

I love paper glaze from Picket Fence Studio. I used gold on black paper through a stencil.

2021 Graduates


FS746 - this weeks incredibly is Aimeslee aka 123scrap talented Featured Stamper. I found this wonderful Graduation Card

I did not use Aimeslee's sketch as she did the sketch challenge. I did add designer papers as she had designer paper on her card and I added a cap (on one of the cards) and stars on both cards. Also the card on the left I added some paper distressing to the edges to add additional interest.

These were super quick. My hubby found a pad of graduation paper that had some wonderful punch out pieces perfect for creating some quick graduation cards. I popped up some of the pieces on dimensionals and added some star stickers and added a graduation cap sticker on one of the cards.

I am still cranking out graduation cards for the class of 2021 with many family members and friends asking for cards this year for grads having some designer paper really helps with getting a few more done quickly.

In the Navy


WT845 - clothing

My sweet nephew is graduating this year and he has already enlisted in the Navy. He ships out just before his 18th birthday. He and my son are the best of friends and I am going to miss him when he ships out.

I used the Karen Burniston pop up photo die cuts to create the collage. I also used the Heartfelt Creations pocket die so I could add a place for me to sign the card and add a note.

On the photos I used many of my nephew, his family, pictures of him with my son and the main picture is of him and I. I added a heart to our picture then I thought oh his mom would have my hiney if I don't add a heart to the one of the two of them so I added an heart to their picture too. LOL!

I can't wait to give this card to him. Oh and the embossed panel was a RAK from a teapot Tuesday and it is perfect for my nephew.

Pop Up Graduation


FS743 - This weeks incredibly talented Featured Stamper is Elizabeth aka beadsonthebrain. I found this wonderful Card

Well all who know me know I have 3 graduates this year that I am cranking out as many graduation cards as I can to fill all the orders for friends and family. As soon as I saw Elizabeth's card - yep I did another graduation card.

I did a belly band rather than the strip across the card then added an oval over the band.

I added DP rather than stamping the base layer and die cut congratulations for the top.

I needed the belly band because on the inside I did the Karen Burniston pop up ball and created a graduate complete with glasses to give it the look of my son.

My sister has 2 small boys and this will be a card from her because the boys will approve of this as a card for their favorite cousin.
