Pink Bouquet You Did It! Card

My friend has finished her chemo!

I embossed the image and the sentiment in gold, then watercolored.

Supplies: Stamps – Avery Elle, Papertrey Ink, paper – Canson watercolor, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Pink Pirouette, ink – VersaFine Vintage Sepia, watercolors – Kuretake Gansai Tambi, embossing powder – Stampendous Gold Detail.


Dog Christmas Cards

Yes, I have survived Thanksgiving hosting, and most of the leftovers are gone. I do feel like I have experienced a time warp, though.

Offspring3 brought this dog stamp home from a trip to Michael’s last week. Adorable. The dog on the left was stamped and heat embossed, the dog on the right was stamped (not embossed). The bow on both cards was colored using a Copic marker.

I came to the conclusion over the weekend that I am not designing one specific holiday card to send this year. I will probably put the same sentiment inside, but the cards are going to be random.

Supplies: Stamps – Clearly Besotted, Recollections, paper – Crate Paper Falala, Malmero Pearl Sparkle Green, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Real Red, inks – Copic R29, VersaFine Onyx Black, Vintage Sepia, dies – Lawn Fawn (stitched rectangles), Spellbinders (squares), embossing powders – Ranger clear, Stampendous Gold Detail, gold cord – Paper Mart.
