CAUTION! Dog Slobber

Today is National PUPPY Day! 
Proceed with CAUTION there's Dog Slobber ahead...

This little guy from the Caution Dog Slobber clear stamp set is just so happy, his silly expression makes me smile! You can see another card I made using this set HERE.

I stamped him with Versafine Vintage Sepia ink on Canson cold pressed watercolor paper and used Faber Castell watercolor pencils to color him.  Then die-cut him out with the matching Caution Dog Slobber die set.

I stamped the sign and sentiment with the same ink and actually just cut that out by hand but there is a matching die included in the die set for that too. 

I then stamped the caution sign 3 more times and hand cut just the top caution part on all 3 of them. I glued 2 of them under the dog and the third one I popped up on foam tape and put on the sign for some dimension. And of course I had to add a little glitter to his tongue and drool - lol

 The dog and triangle are popped up on foam tape for dimension too. And to finish I glued onto a dark pink matte and then to a dark brown card base. 

I hope you are enjoying National Puppy Day with your furbabies?!

Farmhouse Thank You

I love anything farmhouse and for today's card I'm using some of our Whimsy Stamps Farmhouse Collection products for my thank you card.

I started out with a white card matte and sponged on some light brown ink all across the bottom. Then I used a darker brown ink and sponged on the pattern using the Farmhouse Basket stencil.

I stamped the Farmhouse Wreath above the basket area and colored it with Copic markers. Then stamped the sentiment inside. You can build all kinds of custom sentiments with this set and mix-n-match with the Farmhouse Vases set too.

I used the Farmhouse Vases set and stamped some of the twigs randomly near the basket line.  Then stamped the vase on a separate piece of paper, colored it with Copic markers, hand-cut it out and popped it up with foam tape.
I matted everything into a kraft colored card base to complete my farmhouse thank you card.

St. Patrick's Day Build a Basket

Top o' the mornin' to ya and HAPPY St. Patrick's Day!

The Build a Basket die set has lots of different elements and for my card today I decided to make a pot-o-gold with it for St. Patrick's Day. Keep reading to find a couple of quick tips about how I made gold coins and the handles on the pot.

I die-cut the black kettle and sponged on a little white ink around the edges. Then (tip 1) I used the bow from the die set to make the handles, brilliant huh - lol.  I cut the shamrock out of  green Glitter Tape by (tip 2) first sticking the tape to a piece of cardstock then cutting it out with the shamrock die. Then did the same thing with gold Glitter Tape and cut out a bunch of coins.

I used the new Pierced and Stitched Circle die set for the white circle and stamped the sentiment from the Shamrock Swirl clear stamps set. Then I adhered the kettle with foam tape and added a few extra coins "falling" off the side.

I added a strip of the gold Glitter Tape down the left side of a white card base.  Then stamped the Buffalo Plaid background with black ink onto green card stock and added that on top. 

The Build a Basket is really fun to work with and there are a bunch of different was to use it. I'm already thinking of a Halloween cauldron and of course there are lots of ideas for spring/Easter and just an everyday basket with many ideas for one die set!
