Happy Birthday


Hi there!

Today’s card uses a few products from My Favorite Things: the Bitty Bears stamp set, the Snowfall Background cling stamp, and the Inside and Out Stitched Squares die set.  I thought I’d combine two MFT challenges in one card, the MFT Sketch Challenge, and the Birthday Challenge.

More Coffee, Please.


Hi there and happy Monday!

It’s been a few weeks since I’ve done a Monday coffee card, but I’ve got a long week ahead so I thought I’d start it off with this sweet bunny from Honey Bee Stamps.  The bunny comes from the Blah Humbunny stamp set, the mug from the Blah Bunny stamp set, and the sentiment from the Blah Blah Blah stamp set.  The background is My Favorite Things’ Whimsical  Waves background stamp.

You Are My Favorite Human


Hi there!  I hope you’re having a great day!

Today I’m sharing a quick and easy card using My Favorite Things’ Puppy Kisses stamp set.  I just love all of these cute dogs!

I started by trimming a piece of Neenah Solar White #80 Classic Crest card stock using the largest die from the Lawn Fawn Outside In Stitched Rectangles die set to create the card front.  Then I placed the card front in a Misti and laid out six dog stamps in two columns.  I stamped the images in Simon Says Stamp Fog ink which is a very light gray.

Shifting the card front over a few inches, I stamped another set of six dogs.  Then I filled in any extra spaces by hand-stamping individual dogs to finish this the pattern.

I stamped the featured dog image in Copic-friendly Hero Arts Intense Black ink.  Using just a few Copic colors (E31 and E35 for the fur, E00 for the inside of the ears, and B4 for the collar), I did some very basic coloring and blending.  I cut out the pup using a Brother ScanNCut2 machine and set him aside.

For the heat embossed sentiment, I masked off alternate parts of the sentiment (which is one long strip) so that I could stamp in two lines.  I stamped in VersaMark ink onto a piece of blue Recollections cardstock, sprinkled Hero Arts white embossing powder over it, tapped of the excess, and hit it with a heat gun.

I assembled the card by adhering the card front onto an A2-sized piece of the same blue cardstock and then used foam tap to pop up the puppy and the sentiment strip.  Then I adhered the entire piece to the front of an A2-sized card base to finish up the card.

Happy National Pet Day!

I love animals, but I especially love my two cats. They came home with me as half-pound kittens and grew into 20-pound beasts. They’re from the shelter and my best guess it that they’re Norwegian Forest cats. So today I have a simple card to celebrate my cats and the many times they’ve saved me over the years.

I started by die-cutting a piece of Neenah Solar White 80# Classic Crest cardstock with the scalloped rectangle die from My Favorite Things Blueprints 27 Die-Namics. Then, using stamps from the My Favorite Things Cool Cat stamp set, I stamped the cushion and sentiment using Copic-friendly Hero Arts Intense Black ink.


I colored in the cushion in two shades of blue (B32 and B34), doing some very simple blending. On a separate piece of cardstock, I stamped the cat image and colored it using W1, W3, and the colorless blender to make a virtually all white cat. I added a bit of R30 inside the ears and on the nose. Then I cut out the kitty using a Brother ScanNCut2.

Then I adhered the scalloped panel to an A2-sized piece of Recollections kraft cardstock. I backed the kitty with foam tape and adhered her onto the cushion. I adhered the card front onto an A2-sized card base and that finished today’s card.

I hope you have a wonderful day! Thanks for stopping in!
