You Are Furtastic Cat Card

I’ve been wanting to build a wreath of the small cat related items in Simon Says Stamp’s Playful Kittens stamp set for a while. (Not sure WHY I wanted to do this wreath – I have no pets (allergies), and I am more of a dog person!) Here it is!

Supplies: Stamps – Simon Says Stamp, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Going Gray (retired blast from the past!), Pacific Point, inks – Copic B05, C1, C3, R11, YR04, Gina K. Designs Blue Raspberry, Lawn Fawn Manatee, VersaFine Onyx Black, die – Lawn Fawn, corner punch – Stampin’ Up!, embossing powder – Stampendous Detail clear.

Royal and Key Lime You Made My Day Card

I made several color options of the Rustic Botanicals background while the stamps were on my MISTI last week.

And I was gifted a few new inks on my birthday (thanks Offspring3 & Offspring1!!), this one is Gina K. Designs Key Lime. LOVE IT.

I am trying to decide which brands of ink pads I like – my Stampin’ Up! pads have seen better days (and I don’t like their coverage with clear stamps). I am loving the Gina K. and the Lawn Fawn pads. I also have a few Simon Says Stamp pads, I have to pull them out and do a sample sheet that matches the sample sheet I did for the most recent ones so I am comparing apples to apples.

I am delivering cards to HorseSpirit Arts Gallery at Historic Savage Mill today! The grand opening is Saturday, November 10, 2018 at 10:00am. There will be a reception from 5:00 – 9:00pm that evening.

Supplies: Stamps – Essentials by Ellen, Stampin’ Up!, paper – Gmund Royal, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, inks – Gina K. Designs Key Lime, VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Lawn Fawn (stitched rectangle), Spellbinders (circles), embossing powder – Stampendous Detail clear.


Pink Survivor Card

Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I thought I would make a card to send to one of the survivors I know.

I made a collage on my MISTI, and stamped it 3 times to get the perfect ink coverage. (And that is why my Pixie Pink ink looks more like Pink Passion ink!)

Supplies: Stamps – Essentials by Ellen, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Basic Black, Pink Passion (retired), inks – Stampin’ Up! Pixie Pink (retired), VersaFine Onyx Black, die – Spellbinders, embossing powder – Stampendous Detail clear, organdy ribbon – Offray.
