Quilt Birthday


CC850 - Pale Papaya, Magenta Madness, Shaded Spruce & Gold Accents

I used a quilt die cut and the colors for this week to create a few quilt birthday cards. My MIL is a quilter and has a few quilt friends that she sends birthday cards to and I needed to finish a few cards for her friends. These colors are perfect for gorgeous quilt cards.

I layered the quilt on a mirror gold paper and finished with the birthday banner.

Welcome Pup


FS751 - Today's featured stamper is Angie aka APMCreations. She has a beautiful gallery full of so much inspiration. I found this incredible Card

I needed to get a few more pet cards made for my donation and when I saw Angie's card I remembered I have that punch. Rather than punch them out and do them in a row I used them to create a full back ground. I also added several hearts rather than hats.

I finished with the sentiment.

Shark's Note


IC812 - Surfboard Art Pinterest Board where I found this great PIN

This card is in honor of my niece. She loves sharks and was initially inspired by her to use this shark image.

The background was super fun to create using different blue papers from my scrap bin and creating a mosaic water scene gluing each piece individually.

Once the background was created I used the HAPPY SHARK - 153G stamping him  on cardstock coloring with copics and then fussy cutting him.

I then used that super FRIENDLY NOTE GREETING - 790D because it really is perfect for anyone.

Both the shark and the sentiment were popped up on dimensionals and the card was finished with white candy dots.

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

Just a Friendly...Shark

Finished with some stickles to add some interest to the scene.

Faux Quilt Candles


WT850 - Go Faux: use a faux technique

My mother in law gives me a list of people she would like cards made every year and a large part of the list are her quilty friends. The Faux Quilt Candles really seemed like a fun technique to use for quilt friends and I even have a quilt emboss folder.

I looked for some coordinating papers in my scrap drawer and cut them out to create the candles.

Next I used the old bird builder punch from Stampin Up to punch different yellows for the flames.

Once all papers were glued down I embossed the card stock  and then layered. Finished with the sentiment banner and some sequins.

This is a great technique to use up scraps for cards and super easy too. Plus you can use different colors and textures to change up the look of the card.

Thank you for stopping by to check out my card.

Best Fishes


CAS643 - Outdoor fun

I love creating masculine cards because I have a bunch of guys in my family. This is perfect for a few of them.

I stamped fish all over the black base layer and heat embossed in clear.

Stamped the fishing image in black and while the image was still in the die cut I sponged blue.

Stamped the sentiment cut and added just a bit of copic to the sentiment and popped it up on dimensionals.

Welcome Baby

 FS750 - This weeks incredibly talented Featured Stamper is Sandi MacIver, better known around here as SandiMac. Her gallery is full of some incredible inspiration. I found these cute Cards

USEIT2021 - Iron Ons

I had a couple of books of iron Ons that I needed to see if I could use on cards. They are a bit of a challenge to add to card stock because there is no tooth in standard card stock to hold the transfers. This was the best one that I was able to get to stay. I thought it would work great for a baby card when I saw today's Featured Stamper gallery.

I cut the onsie and added a die cut sentiment and added to a coordinating designer paper.

Many Grads


FS748 - This weeks incredibly talented featured stamper Jacque Williams (aka jeddibamps). I found this super cute Card.

I had a bunch of paper strips from several graduation cards and I needed to use those up and make a stack of cards for my SIL. Her son graduated yesterday and the party is next weekend.

I loved the paper stripe on Jacque's card and thought that was a great starting point to use some of the scraps I had. I added a black layer to give the papers a bit of pop. Each card was finished off with the graduation cap sticker and the congratulations banners.

On to the next graduation party. 

Many Grads!

F4A589 - My Favorite

The very first time I was introduced to Heartfelt Creations they had the sunflower set out on a table and they were demonstrating flower shaping and coloring at a craft fair.

Cut the layers, stamped and cut the flowers and leaves and colored and shaped the flowers and leaves.

Layered the card and flowers and leaves and finished with prills and stickles.
