Cute Kitty Thank You Card

Howdy friends! We had to take one of our kitties to the vet today because he is having some urinary issues. He is still there until he decides to give them a sample. It would be wonderful if he could understand the idea if you go... then you get to go home. I made this Cute Kitty Thank You Card to give the veterinary staff when I pick him up.

To make this card I used the sketch from the Stella Says Sketch challenge #504. The image is called Cute Kitty by Bugaboo Stamps and it was colored with Copic markers. Trying to match the image mat on the sketch I cut the blue mat with my Cricut machine, then a small shadow circle was cut in green to layer under the colored image. All patterned papers are from my scrap bin and the Thank You sentiment is from Momenta. To finish the card I added a yellow embossed butterfly and three green sequins. That's it! Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!

Otter Be My Valentine Card

Recently I saw this Otter Valentine stamp by Unity Stamps and knew I had to buy it to make my hubby's Valentine card. We love to visit the river otters at the Tulsa Zoo and I knew this stamp would make the perfect card. He definitely loved it!!!

To make this card I first colored the image with Copic markers and then it was die cut with a stitched square die by Lil' Inkers. Then I selected the patterned papers which ended up being all retired papers by Stampin' Up! After stamping the sentiment I stamped a small heart from a Newton's Nook stamp set to fill in some white space. To finish off the card I added my favorite embellishment... twine and then adhered the image and sentiment with dimensionals. That's it!

Hello My Friend Card

Hello my friends! I've been enjoying a few weeks with minimal computer usage, so I haven't been blogging. However, I have been crafting and will share some of my recent creations soon. Today is the start of a new challenge at Tuesday Throwdown and the theme is Say it with Words. Our sponsor is Winnie & Walter and they generously provided a spending allowance for the design team to select our merchandise. It was really hard to pick but keeping the theme in mind, I got the Hello Cutaway & The Big, the bold, and the Happy stamp set. We would love for you to join us! Click HERE for all the challenge details and design team inspiration. You have until mid-day Monday, February 20th to link your creation. I hope to see your link in the gallery!

It was difficult to get a good photo of this card! There really is a lot of shimmer and shine. The background was made using mixed media paper along with glimmer mists in Lime Light and Sunlight by Tattered Angels. I had some problems with the Sunlight spray bottle getting clogged but I like the splotchy look it created. Once everything was dry I added a strip of Wild Wasabi chevron paper by Stampin' Up! and matted the panel to black cardstock. The hello was die cut using a Big Shot and adhered flat to the card. My Friend was stamped onto white cardstock and punched for the banner detail. The last addition was three gold sequins and that's it!
