Hello there!

Today I’m celebrating three years of survivorship so I created a card for all of the survivors out there using the beautiful Courage Stamp & Die Set from Essentials By Ellen over at Ellen Hutson. For each set that is purchased, Ellen Hutson will donate $25 to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Continue reading “So Glad You Are A Survivor”

Hi there! I hope your week has gotten off to a nice start!

I made today’s card for a friend who just accepted a position at a new company. She has a dog that she adores so I knew I wanted to use one of the sweet dogs from Pinkfresh Studio’s Playful Animal Friends 2 stamp set.

I used Neenah Solar White 80# Classic Crest cardstock for this project and started by stamping the dog in Versafine Black Onyx ink. Then I stamped the banner image in Altenew Aqualicious dye ink, and then stamped the sentiment in the same black ink as the dog. I cut out the images using a Brother ScanNCut2 and set them aside.

For the card front I trimmed another piece of Neenah using the largest die from the Lawn Fawn Outside In Stitched Rectangles die set. Then I stamped the flower images in the same black ink, and the small bird in the same blue ink. I did some very simple coloring using Copics (R24 and R29 for the flowers, and BG02 for the leaves), and added dots of white Sakura Gelly Roll pen to the centers of the flowers. I also added a dot of black Sakura Gelly Roll Glaze pen to the dog’s eye, to give just a hint of dimension and shine.

I then adhered the banner flush to the card, and popped up the dog using foam tape. Finally, I adhered the entire card front to an A2-sized card base and that finished up today’s card.

Thanks for visiting!
