Otterly Happy Birthday


Another cute card created with a cute set.  This is another by MFT Stamps, Otterly Love You.  For the background, which is the card base, I lightly drew a circle with a pencil on the card base.  (The pencil marks show where the circle will be on the top layer of the card.)  I then sponged distress inks a little beyond the pencil marks to look like sand and water.  As usual, I heat embossed the images, colored them with alcohol markers and cut them with the Scan N Cut.  After erasing the pencil marks and stamping the sentiment, I adhered the top layer using dimensionals.  A few pretty sequins complete the card.  Have a great weekend and find yourself a little stampin' time!

Fluffy Flamingos

From what we hear, Sydney is enjoying camp~~ even with the rain  She loves being with the animals, has made new friends and has met up with friends from previous years.  It has hard to believe that she has been going to this camp since she was 9 years old.  Looking back at photos, she was so young back then.  

Today's card is another I made for her.  And, it is another tropical stamp set I have in my collection.  This is the Fluffy Flamingos set by Clearly Besotted.  The little birds were colored with alcohol markers and cut on the Scan N Cut.  The sentiment is from the  MFT Stamps Tickled Pink stamp set.  Another fun card for Sydney Elizabeth!  Have a great day and keep dry!!!!

Tropical Celebration

I saw a very cute tropical stamp set on WPlus9 Stamps.  The set included two cute flamingos.  I added it to my cart but then decided before I purchase another tropical set, I was going to see what I already owned.  I came across a few sets and the tropical sets I have, made it very unnecessary to add to my collection!  So my cart was emptied!

I then went on to create today's card using a couple of those stamp sets.  This card was created using Sunny Studio Stamps' Tropical Paradise and Fresh and Fruity stamp sets.   I stamped and heat embossed the images and used alcohol markers to color them.  And, since I purchased these sets prior to the Scan N Cut, I had coordinating dies to cut everything out.  The sentiment is from Penny Black's Heartfelt stamp set.  Have a great day!

Science Camp Time

Syd is off to camp this week.  Between Jen, Grandmum and me, Sydney gets a lot of mail.  Since they have mail call every day, we each do a few days.  That way she only gets one  piece of mail each day or maybe two pieces of mail occasionally. 

Today's card I made using one of her favorite stamp sets, Unforgettable by WPlus9 Stamps.  It is just a playful card to bring a smile to her face.  I printed the sentiment on the computer, spacing it so that images would fit.  I sure hope it has cooled off for the campers who are down in Rolla, Missouri.  It was hot and humid up here and Jen said it was awful down there over the weekend.  Good for us though, it has cooled off!  Have a great day!

Dad Day Cards

These are the cards I made for John and Matt.  For John's card I used RG Studio 360's Boho Classic digital stamp set.  I used Stampin' Up's Gorgeous Grunge stamp set for the background.  Matthew's card is to him from his dogs.  The stamp set is New Best Friend from MFT Stamps.  After stamping and embossing the little dog image three times, I colored the images to match his dogs. Both cards were appreciated from two card-worthy men!

And as a little something from Matt's chickens, I personalized a plastic egg container that fits 24 eggs using my Scan N Cut and Vinyl.  In a couple of months he will be needing egg storage!   Have a great day and keep cool!

Native Boho

Wednesday evening was Richard Garay's virtual card club class.  The club class kit includes supplies needed to complete  four cards along with the digital stamp set.  (Adhesives are not included.)  This month's digital stamp set from RG Studio 360 is the Native Boho set.  I am posting two of the four cards I made, embellished with a few of Nipper's feathers (saved over the years).  Next week I will post the two cards I created using Richard's color scheme. They, too, are pretty.  Have a great weekend and keep cool and hydrated!

Dad Dragon

With Father's Day being just a couple days away, I wanted to post Nancy's card for Father's Day.  She made this card using My Favorite Things Magical Dragons stamp set.  It is for her son-in-law.  What is so cute is that she made a pink dragon for their girl and blue dragons for their two boys.  Stampin' Up's Brick Wall embossing folder is a great background for the dragons.  Thanks for sharing, Nancy!  Have a great day!
