Happy Bird-ay Canada!


Canada Day 2014Ft Canada Day 2014In

Hi There,

Happy Canada Day everyone! Here is “Boo’s” new card for the vet this year. For those of you who don’t know her, “Boo” is our black cat. We met Boo about 4 years ago, fell in love with her and brought her home to live with us. She was 6.5 years old. She was a rescue cat and because here name was Boo, I thought it would be fun to make a card for Hallowe’en from her. The vet and staff loved it and I’ve been making cards for the vet for every occasion from her since. Hope you like this one!

Happy Birthday Clown Card


Image

Hi There,

I’m entering this into the Peachy Keen contest for using their new June Stamp Release. I decided to make a clown Happy Birthday card. I stamped the Happy Birthday several times to create the impression that the clowns were singing “Happy Birthday”.

For this card, I used the stamps from PKSC-30 June 2014.

I used my Spectrum Markers to colour the clowns.

For Faces I used Gold Brown (GB) 4,5,6; Flesh (FS) 1,2,3,4; Tan(TN) 2,3,4. The cheeks were coloured with Coral (CR)4.

The clowns outfits were coloured using various other Spectrum marker colours. For the pompoms at the top of the clown hats, I used “FlowerSoft”.

I used my Cricut to cut out the world from the “Going Places” cartridge and surrounded the clowns around it.

I cut out various circles with my “Lifestyle Crafts L” Nested Circle cutting dies and used some coloured cardstock that I had on hand and then layered them. I then used an “Action Wobble Spring” behind the world so that you can spin the clowns.

The birthday paper background is from “Birthday Wishes Specialty Collection”.

Hope you like it!

Happy Father’s Day


Happy Father's Day

Hi Everyone,

Here is the Father’s Day card I made for my dad this year using Peachy Keen Stamps.

I used the following stamp sets:
PK-1388 Gone Fishin’
PK-1387 Up a Creek and Camper
Waves were cut with blue cardstock using my Fiskar’s punch.
I then used Stampin Up! Pacific Point ink pad to give it some texture.
The raccoon, boat and fish were coloured in using my Spectrum markers and Prisma Coloured pencils.
I raised the waves with pop dots and used some coloured twine to hook the fish.

Hope you like it!

I created this card for my sister-in-law who had a hip operation and my friend who broke her ankle. Peachy Keen came out with these stamps in May and I just fell in love with them.

The outhouse stamp is called R-32 Lg. Outhouse. Little raccoon faces on the front of the card are from the set PK-1393 Raccoon Face and Head Assortment.

I also used the following Peachy Keen sets. PK-1391 Burnt Out Camping Raccoon for the sentimental saying, PKSC-29 May2014 – Raccoon and S’more.

I used a combination of my Spectrum Markers and Prisma Coloured Pencils to colour in the images.
