Am I Too Late For Cake Card

This is the other belated birthday card I needed.

I scoured my friend’s Facebook page, looking for photos & videos of her dogs. I discovered I need  A LOT more practice coloring dogs (and black is particularly difficult) that are supposed to look like actual real dogs!

The cake was originally going to be yellow cake with chocolate ganache between the layers. It is those colors. BUT, I know that chocolate is not a dog friendly food item, so, please use your positive imagination to come up with a ganache flavor that would work for dogs. Maybe kibble ganache?

Floral Wreath Birthday Card – Ellen Hutson June 2018 Color Trend Challenge

I dug deep and finally completed another challenge. This is for the Ellen Hutson June 2018 Color Trend Challenge .

Here is the inspiration:

In reality, I loved everything on the inspiration board, but thought I would execute something too close to the inspiration. So, I stuck to it being a color challenge.

I cut a 5 inch square of white cardstock, and used my homemade wreath builder tool to build the wreath on my MISTI. After I was done stamping, I did trim 1/8th of an inch from each side, to give me space for the black mat.

I have stashed it away for personal use.

Basic Black, inks – Hero Arts Unicorn, Tim Holtz/Ranger Distress Inks Chipped Sapphire, Crushed Olive, Lucky Clover, Mowed Lawn, Shaded Lilac, Tumbled Glass, Wild Honey, Wilted Violet, die – Spellbinders, sequins – Pretty Pink Posh, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder white.

You Are Strong (with Basic Grey Romani) Card

This is a scrap of my favorite Basic Grey Romani line of paper from more than 10 years ago. My stash is down to one half sheet. SIGH. And Basic Grey went out of business.

I paired the delicate floral with “You are strong”, and I am sending it off to someone who could use a reminder of just that.

Supplies: Stamp – Essentials by Ellen, paper – Basic Grey Romani, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Poptone Sour Apple, ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, die – My Favorite Things, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear, twine – MarkerPop.
