Under The Weather

It seems like at this time every year the seasonal germies and crud start and I always have a shortage of get well cards. The hostess set My Hero has several occasions in it, one being perfect for these types of cards. If you are looking for a versatile set you'll want to get your hands on this set!! This is also a RMHC stamp set which Stampin' Up! so gratiously donates $3 from the sale of each set to a GREAT cause!!! I also got to reach for my new Umbrella Weather framelits.

I love the cut away card. It is just a different shaped A2 card.

DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #199-You've Got Class

  #199

This week we have a sketch for our challenge. It can be interpreted in so many ways and I can't wait to see what the other STARS have come up with. These are my favorite of all the challenges. Seeing how school is now back  in session I thought it would be appropriate for a schoolish (is this even a word?) card. I chose to use two different sentiments- masking part of one- to add another.

DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #198-Lil Pumpkin

#198

 

Hi Stampers,

We are having a product spotlight for our challenge this week. I know a lot of you just LOVE this product-washi tape!! It makes sweet and simple cards but still has that WOW factor. Since I don't send out Halloween cards, I only own a couple of the washi tape groups so my pickens were pretty thin to do this challenge!!! LOL

Paper: Basic Black, Whisper White, Pumpkin Pie

Copper Flourish Thinlits

OMGosh, I bought the copper foil sheets in my preorder and they are SO RICH looking!! The Flourish Thinlits make gorgeous die cuts---very delicate and feminine looking. Remember you can order any of the items in my online store --- just click the button at the top to take you there!!

To make this card, I punched out three 1-1/2" circles spaced apart. I then used my layering squares framelits to cut out 3 "frames". Then, I took the circles that were cut out and used them to cut out my flower die cuts. I wish you could see this card in person. These pictures really don't do it justice. Just gorgeous IRL!!! I also colored our rhinestones with a copper Sharpie marker and placed in the center of each flower. I also used the thin long pieces of the copper foil I had left over to place along the top and bottom of the card instead of using a whole sheet of copper. I then, popped up the layer with dimensionals.

Recipe:

Stamp Set: Wetlands

Ink: Copper embossing powder

Paper: Very Vanilla, Copper foil sheet

Accessories: Big Shot, Flourish thinlits, Layering Squares framelits, 1-1/2" circle punch, heat gun, VersaMark, embossing buddy, fine tip glue pen, SNAIL, rhinestones, copper Sharpie marker, dimensionals

Harlow's Baptism-All God's Grace

Harlow2

My great niece Harlow was baptized a couple of weeks ago and I forgot to post the card I sent. They live in Kansas and my nephew (Harlow's Dad) is stationed in the Army (he's holding her). He was in Kuwait since she was a week old. We are so glad he is home and gets to be with his family again.

When I was making this card, I didn't intend to use so many retired items but sometimes you have to use up what you have.

DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #197-Oh Snap!!!

Hi Stampers,

Well the heat is still holding on along with the humidity. It was a few degrees cooler (still 90's) with high humidity. I feel sorry for the students in school. A friend of mine's granddaughter told her-"my eyes were sweating". LOL Out of the mouth of babes!!! Well, we are back with another challenge and this week we have a home sweet home challenge. It also goes along with the weather we have been having. I see many things, a color challenge, crabs, penguins, nautical---the list goes on and on. Well, I don't own the flamingo stamp set called Pop of Paradise so I decided to use punch art with a little diecutting.
