Dog talk for Happy Birthday!

This puppy is so cute! I used a layout downline Barb A. had used before for my swap at the last demonstrator meeting. I cut 5-1/4" x 4" pieces of Parker's Paint dsp, then cut the pieces diagonally. I used a strip of natural trim in the middle. I used the Windows Collection framelits on scrap of Very Vanilla and a piece of Not Quite Navy for the top two layers. I stamped the dog stamp from Animal Talk in Not Quite Navy, then sponged around it with Riding Hood Red ink and a sponge dauber, and adhered it to the card with dimensionals.

A little Mosaic Madness

There's just a week left to order this amazing sentiment from the Spring Catalog stamp set Amazing Family. This was my swap at this month's demonstrator meeting. It's a Pool Party card with a mosaic embossed Whisper White layer that was first stamped with the sentiment (in Island Indigo) before being run through the Big Shot. The two popped-up images are from the Mosaic Madness stamp set (in the NEW catalog). They've been punched, adhered with dimensionals and made sparkly with rhinestones.

Quick and easy butterfly card

It's been awhile since I've blogged. I had a demonstrator meeting last weekend and brought this card for a make and take. I copied a card I saw by Stampin' Up! demonstrator Mary Fish. I used the Elegant Butterfly punch and the Bitty Butterfly punch in Certainly Celery (retiring color) and Marina Mist card stocks, stuck them together with mini glue dots, and added a pearl to each one. The So Sorry is stamped in Not Quite Navy, another color that is retiring.

You Rule with Queen for a Day card

This card is so simple and fun! I used a strip of Sycamore Street paper from the Sale-a-Bration Catalog, added a distressed strip of Pool Party with a knot of Sycamore Street satin Tangerine Tango ribbon (another SAB item), and stamped and cut out the crown from You Rule. I placed large rhinestones and regularly-sized rhinestones on the crown for jewels and stamped the "Queen for a Day" in Rich Razzleberry. This was my make and take at my American Ink demo meeting last weekend. Ta ta!
