Hope your day is dog-gone great!

My card

Techno Stampers Sketch Challenge 274


Had a lot of fun combing several challenges to create this cute little puppy card.  Colored digi image with Copic markers, then cut out with Spellbinders dies.   Tag was computer printed.  Added a ribbon, then attached image and banner with pop dots on the back for a 3-D effect.

2nd post today - Angler Card

Needed a birthday card for someone I used to work for many years ago.  I find it a bit difficult to make masculine birthday cards, but I think he might like this one since it has fishing as the theme.  The stamp is from a retired SU set called Angler.  Stamped the image with Memento black ink and colored with Copics.  Tag and image were cut out with Nestabilities dies.
  Cardstock is called Bahama from Bazzill.  Used GP White for image and tag.

By the Sea

Made this one for a special little boy.  Stamped image from a retired SU set called Summer by the Sea.  Colored with Copics.  The fish net, shells and sea horse were cut out of watercolor paper using some files I bought at the Silhouette store using my Cameo.

Wishing you a Bee-utiful Day!

Love this darling little bee from Bugaboo.  Colored with Copic markers.  Applied Stickles to the bee's wings.  Added a pearl to the flower center, a ribbon, some lace and a fun saying.

Christmas in July

Dug out my box of Christmas stamps from the basement to start on some holiday cards.  I plan to do a few each month so I'm not so rushed in December to get them all done.  This fun little scene is a stamp called Naughty or Nice by Penny Black.  Colored with Copics.   Tag says "Some of my best friends are flakes".  Picked navy and turquiouse cardstock colors as I thought this would work better for the boys cards.

Wishing you a dog-gone great day

This darling little girl is a precolored digi image from Woopsidaisy.  I thought she would be perfect to use for the cards I make for the Childrens Charity.  Cut out image and background layer with Spellbinders dies.  The blue background layer is embossed with a Cuttlebug folder.   Layered onto textured yellow paper then added lace, ribbon and a heart button tied with twine.

Love this darling little kitty that is a free download from Dearie Dolls.  It comes in either black and white or colored.  Image and background layer were cut out with Spellbinders dies.  Scalloped border is a Fiskars punch.  Banner is computer printed then hand cut.  Also added some yellow twine to cover the edge of yellow paper.
