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?

Supplies: Stamps – Essentials by Ellen, Lawn Fawn, Impression Obsession, paper – My Mind’s Eye Hello World, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up!

Tulip Feel Better Card

This Spring Garden stamp set goes WAY back, almost to my stamping beginning (fall of 2002). The copyright date on the set is 2003, so it might be from the first or second stamp camp I attended. I will not get rid of it until I wear it out!

Today, it turned into a feel better soon card, which I find a little more versatile than the traditional get well soon.

Do you send get well cards?

Distress Ink Enveloper Note Cards

I had my Waffle Flower Enveloper Little Birdie stamp set out, and I have been wanting to just use ink on it (no embossing powder, no hand coloring, no painting).

The “possibilities” card is regular Distress inks, the “thanks” card is Distress Oxide inks. I used my MISTI, and cleaned the stamp between ink colors. The ink blending happened on the paper, not on the stamp.

Supplies: Stamps – Simon Says Stamp, Waffle Flower, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Basic Black, inks – Hero Arts Unicorn, Tim Holtz/Rander Distress Inks Abandoned Coral, Picked Raspberry, Tim Holtz/Ranger Distress Oxide inks Peacock Feathers, Picked Raspberry, Salty Ocean, Squeezed Lemonade, VersaFine Onyx Black, embossing powders – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear, Stampendous Detail clear, organdy ribbon – Offray.

Cat and Butterflies Wonderful Card

Do you think this cute cat expected to find three new friends in the grass?

I die cut the cat shape out of the background and placed the Copic colored die cut cat within the space, so he is not sitting on top of the grass, but within the grass.

Supplies: Stamps – A Muse Artstamps, Reverse Confetti, Simon Says Stamp, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Soft Sky (retired), So Saffron, inks – Copic BG10, C1, C3, R11, Stampin’ Up! Old Olive, VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Simon Says Stamp (cat), Stampin’ Up! (butterflies), embossing powders – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear, Stampendous Detail clear.


I Need Coffee Note Card

I found this sentiment already stamped in my scrap folder, and thought, “hmmm…will that fit within one of my coffee cup dies??” Yep. And the tan dotted paper is actually from a Christmas paper pad (I get that the white dots are SNOW…but the tan? For Christmas?), but to my eye, it looked like coffee with creamer.

Supplies: Stamp – Simon Says Stamp, paper – Crate Paper Falala, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Tempting Turquoise, ink – VersaFine Vintage Sepia, dies – Hero Arts, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.
