Dog Sympathy Card


Hi There,

Sharing a dog sympathy card that I made. It is always very hard losing one of our furry friends, especially when we cherish them as if they were our children. They say that we will meet again someday over the Rainbow Bridge so I drew in a rainbow on my card.

Sentiment – Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps – Furry Friends. Stamped onto red paper with Versamark ink and then embossed with Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail. Added in footprint with paw print from Stampin Up.

Father’s Day card for my Father-in-Law


Hi There and Happy Father’s Day to all of the dads out there! We went over to visit my father-in-law and family tonight and we knew ahead of time that he was going to BBQ. I thought it would be fun to make him this BBQ-ing Dragon from High Hopes Stamps and create my own sentiment inside.

Inside the card:

Stamped image High Hopes Rubber Stamps “Flame Boilin” – Q104 with Memento – Tuxedo Black ink onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card Cardstock.

Coloured image with Copic markers.

Die cut – Die-namics – Exclusive Designs from My Favorite Things – MFT-652 – Cross-Stitch Rectangle ST and went around with Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Black Soot.

Stamped background with High Hopes Rubber Stamps “Flame Boilin” – Q104 and Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder. Then used Tim Holtz Ranger Distress Oxide – Fossilized Amber, Tim Holtz Ranger Distress Oxide – Fired Brick and Tim Holtz Ranger Distress Oxide – Spiced Marmalade. I was hoping to make the background look like a huge flame.
