Handmade Card for Mom

Hello! It's a rainy day here in Oklahoma. I ran a few errands this morning and then decided to play in my craft room. After digging through my stamp sets, I decided to use the Always stamp set by Pink & Main to create this Handmade Card for Mom. My mom likes the color blue, so I found a pretty floral paper in the New Day paper pad by Echo Park (2022) that reminded me of her. It coordinates nicely with the stamp set. I used Copic markers to color the image and then added a sentiment using the Best Mom Oval stamp set by Newton's Nook. The coordinating dies were used to cut out the image and then everything was adhered flat. That's it, so glad you stopped by!

Paw-some Birthday Card

Good day! It's been awhile since I've made a masculine birthday card, so I made this Paw-some Birthday Card today. The image and sentiment are from the Paw-some Birthday stamp set by Newton's Nook. Copic markers were used to color the image and the coordinating dies used to cut it out. Some striped and polka dot papers from the Happy Birthday paper pad by Echo Park (2017) was selected. Everything was adhered flat and that's it. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!

Challenges entered: Addicted to Stamps and More (Any Occasion), Beyond The Blue (Birthdays), Crafty Animals (Anything Goes including an Animal), Inkspirational (Use Dots and Stripes) and Inky Paws (Birthday).🎁

Dog Sympathy Card

Hello! On Monday I learned of the tragic passing of a dog from the apartment complex where I work. So, I made this Dog Sympathy Card for the owner's. Losing a pet is heartbreaking and sometimes the little things help to get us through.

This Dog Sympathy Card is pretty simple to create. The cloud paper is by Kaiser Craft from the Little Treasures Collection. A die cut cloud using a Puffy Cloud border die by Lawn Fawn. The heartfelt sympathy sentiment is by Unity Stamps from the No Better Words sentiment kit (December 2020). A dog silhouette die cut made using a Cricut machine and then three blue heart sequins added for detail. That's it and thanks for stopping by.

Butterfly Thinking of You Card

Hello! As it gets warmer outside, I've noticed a few butterflies fluttering around my yard. We don't spray chemicals on our backyard, so the butterflies and bees have a few things to feed on until I plant flowers. 🌼

To create this Butterfly Thinking of You Card I used the sketch from the Inky Paws Challenge. I added some blue to play the option at Crafty Catz and three butterflies to play along at Triple B. The butterfly images are from the retiring Beautiful Wings stamp set by Newton's Nook. Floral paper from the My Favorite Summer paper pad by Echo Park was selected. Some twine was added to go along with the sketch and that's it. So glad you stopped by and enjoy the rest of your day.🦋
