Dog Gone Awesome | Every Elle

Happy Saturday and thanks for stopping by, todays card is a cute little puppy from the Every Elle Furry Friends Set. I was asked to create this card for a dog groomer, for always making their little fur baby look so handsome.

I first stamped the dog image and die cut it out with my die cutting machine. I then ink blended the background with four shades of distress oxide inks and spritzed it with water and splattered it with gold mica paint then set it aside to dry. I then die cut two panels out of white cardstock and stamped the sentiment with crisp black ink and clear heat embossed it. The panels were then foam taped to the background.

The panel is then mounted onto a side folding white card base. And our adorable puppy is pop dotted onto the card, glossy accents and sparkling nuvo gloss is added for details. That completes are card for today.

Have a safe and great long weekend, Happy Canada Day!

Vet Thank You Card | WPlus9

Today I'm sharing a card that I was asked to create for a Veterinarian. I wanted to make the scene fun and cutesy.

I started by stamping my images and colouring them in with Copic markers. I then made the background panel by scoring the paper with half inch score lines to make the look of paneling. I used aqua blue cardstock for the counter, I added a strip of paper with foam tape to the very top to create an edge. Some of the stamped images are glued flat and some are pop dotted for added dimension.

The sentiment is stamped and white heat embossed on black cardstock. The panel is adhered to yellow cross hatched gingham paper and mounted onto a side folding card base. White gel pen is used to make high lights and glossy accents are added for details. And that completes our card for today!

Happy Birthday | Little Cat Agenda | Mama Elephant

To begin my card today, I started off by stamping my cat images. Once they were all stamped out I coloured them in with Copic markers and cut them all out with my cutting machine. I also cut the Die-namics Blueprints 27 frame from some white cardstock. The word "birthday" was stamped and die cut and the sentiment was white heat embossed on black cardstock and set aside.

I moved onto create the background, with distress oxide ink mermaid lagoon and the square inserts from the frame. I ink blended from the centre outward and left the edges white. I adhered the frame onto the card base and started assembling the card. All the elements were pop dotted onto the card and the phrase was liquid glued onto the frame.

That finishes my card for today thanks for stopping by,

Have a Claw-Some Day| Sleeping Cat in Claw Machine | Lawn Fawn

I had so much fun making this card, I actually got the idea from all the cat video's that I sit and watch on YouTube. During one of them, kids were playing on the claw machine and here a kitten was sleeping inside of it. If it wouldn't have lifted it's head from being disturbed you would not have known it was sleep amongst the stuffed animals.

I stamped all the images out and colouring them in with Copic markers. I masked off the cat so he would be sitting inside the claw machine with the teddy bears, I then die cut them with there coordinating dies.

To create the background panel, I took a piece of Audrey blue and smoke card stock and using the claw machine die to create an inset for the wall and floor die cut it in the middle of the panel.

The background panel is then mounted on a side folding card base and the coloured images are then adhered onto a die cut piece of fun foam. That is then glued on the card as well and some of the teddy bears are then pop dotted for dimension. That finishes of today's card!

Coffee is Always a good idea | Newton's Nook Design

I wanted to play along with this weeks sketch challenge at Newton's Nook Design's as I always love sketch challenges. So I sat down this afternoon with only seven hours left to spare to get this card created, so for me this card ended up being clean and simple. So not my style but I do like the end result, though I feel it needs more as to me it seems too plain.

I hope you all had a good week and an even better weekend to come, thanks for stopping by and good luck to everyone who has submitted into the Inky paws Challenge.

You left a paw print on my heart | Lawn Fawn

It is never easy making sympathy cards for a loss of a pet, they are a immediate member of the family. I made this card for our close friends of family 14 year old puppy faced pooch who crossed over the rainbow bridge.

I started off by die cutting my rainbow with seven shades of Bazzill card stock. I then ink blended the background on Bristol paper with broken china Distress Oxide Ink. I took the rainbow diecut, and diecut the rainbow into the background panel and inserted my rainbow. I die cut the clouds and sponged the edges with broken china ink as well to give them some color and foam taped the front cloud for dimension.

The dog and tennis ball were stamped and coloured with Copic markers. The sentiment was stamped in crisp black ink and red hearts were die cut and glossy accents was added for dimension. A fog gray frame was diecut and attached with foam tape and the panel was attached to a top folding #110 white card base.

Hello Sweet Girl | Lawn Fawn

Hello everyone! Happy Friday today I am showcasing some Lawn Fawn products. I was asked to make a baby shower card and this is what I created.

I used two stamp sets Hello Baby and Cheery Christmas. I needed more baby animals to fill my scene so I paired the two stamps. First I stamped the images with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink, and coloured them with Copic markers. I then used the coordination dies to cut them out and set them aside.

I die cut my background from Bristol paper using MFT Die-namics Blueprints 27 and ink blended the frames with distress oxide inks. I stamped the sentiment directly onto the panel and highlighted the wording with white gel pen. The critters are then adhered onto the frames with dimensional dots and the panel is attached to a top folding #100lb Fog card base. Have a wonderful weekend!

You and Coffee | Simon Says Stamp | My Favorite Things

This was a fun card to make with a lots of masking involved, I got my inspiration from Therese Calvird and her card on the Highlighted Stamping technique!

Therese Calvird
I didn't know she had a video and I based my card from inspiration of the repetition of her cats and thought coffee cups would look neat. I started with the foreground and worked myself up. I messed up once and had to start over on this card but that is how you learn. Every cup is stamp three times to get just the right amount of ink coverage. Our cute little cat is from My Favorite Things - I Knead You set, I left a fair amount of room for him to roll around amongst the cups. It took a bit to fit him in there just perfectly.

I coloured the cat with Copic markers and stamped a sentiment in Versamark ink and heat set it with White embossing powder on black card stock. The panel is then mounted onto 1/8" foam and adhered onto a #100 side fold Fog card base.

Mother's Day Bike Ride | Lawn Fawn

I got to play with a few really great Lawn Fawn dies for this Mother's Day Card. I love how they coordinate together, and everything just flows nicely when you have all the tools to work with. I used a lot of card stock for this card as I had recently saved since December and had many items on a wish list building up it was time for a haul.

I stamped out my images first on Neenah 80Lbs card stock using Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink and colored them with Copics. I then started to create my background, I die cut the sky from Simon Says Stamp Audrey Blue and the grass from Simon Says Stamp Green Leaf card stock, then I cut the fence from White card stock. I inlayed the path into the grass and die cut it out with Slate card stock and the inside markings with Sunshine card stock.

The sentiment is stamped with Versamark Onyx Black ink, the panel is then attached to a White #110Lbs card base and Spectrum Noir Sparkle is added to the balloons, flowers and the little girls dress. Glossy Accents are added to the balloons for an added detail. The stamped images were raised with foam top for dimension.

Mother's Day Kitty Wreath Card | IsabelCristina Stamps | WPlus9

Here is my attempt at the Gink K. Wreath Builder, I got my idea for the background panel from one of Jennifer McGuire's videos called Wreath Builder Stamping and thought I would give it a try. I don't have many tiny flower stamp sets but I made this one work for me and since I was just having fun playing making a wreath I now know what I would do differently next time.

The kitty image is by IsabelCristina Stamps her illustrations are so adorable. I printed the kitty image on Neenah paper and colored it in with Copics and popped it up with foam tape. I adhered the background panel to Simon Says Stamp Lavender Card Stock and cut a strip for the sentiment.

I added a bit of gold sparkle paper detail, on the strip of lavender. And stamped the sentiment with Versamark and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. Assembled the rest of the card together adding foam tape where it needed to be raised.

Wishing you a beautiful Mother's Day | Lawn Fawn

A beautiful ink blended card using the Lawn Fawn Hillside Backdrop Portrait Stitched Die on Bristol paper. I created the shadowed layers using Distress Oxide Inks by masking them off with some post-it tape in between the layers. I distressed the panel with some sprinkles of water and set the panel a side to dry while I went and stamped the images.

The images are stamped with Copic friendly ink, Simon Says Intense Black Ink and cut out. I then cut out a few extra die cut images to fill in the scene, a sunshine and a couple of clouds. I then used foam tape on the edge of the frame and started assembling the panel onto a #110lbs white card base. This gives the card just a bit of added detail and dimension when your looking at it.

I stamped the sentiment with crisp black ink and inlayed the center portion of the frame,  sky and sun. I started adhering the stamped images with glue and stamped a few hearts just above the kittens head. Spectrum Noir glitter sparkle was added to the little girls dress and the bunches of flowers. That finishes are card for today...

Happy National Scrapbook Day

I love the simple elegance of this Mother's Day card, from the red roses to the shimmering gold.
The moment I saw this Digital Stamp Set of kitties, from IsabelCristina her illustrated drawings are just my type of cutesy that I always love to color and create with. Her digital stamp set Meow I of course I had to have and use in my designs, I had ideas right away for Mother's Day.

I started of with die cutting my background panel from white card stock with the MFT Wonky Stitched Border die, then stamped the roses using the Sweet Life set in the colors PTI Sorbet and Scarlet Jewel and die cut them with coordinating dies. I then stamped the leaves directly onto the white panel with PTI Spring Moss and New Leaf.

I cut a fishtail strip from a piece of black and white stripped paper and also a piece of gold glitter paper and glued those directly onto the panel. I stamped the sentiment from SSS Mothers Day Zingers Set using Versamark Onxy Black Ink.

The stamped images were then popped up with foam tape and clear sequin mix were added for some detail. The panel was then attached to a side folding card base off SSS Fog Card Stock and that completes our card for today.

Rub A Dub Dub | Lawn Fawn

I just loved how this adorable baby card came together for me so easily. I first started by colouring all of the stamped images, this was the first time I had used Spectrum Markers and I don’t mind colouring with them at all.

I then moved onto cutting out the background panel with Lawn Fawn’s Gingham and Spring Plaid Papers using the MFT Die-namics Blueprints 27.

I layed out all my images first before gluing them down, then I knew which ones I wanted to single layer or pop dot dot up for demension. I added Nuvo Glitter Sparkle to the bubbles for some glimmer. It’s makes the card look so great! 

The sentiment is stamped with Versamark Onyx Black ink and die cut with a fishtail edge also from the MFT Blueprints 27 set. The panel is then adheard onto a #110lbs White card stock base and our card is complete.
