Tabby Cat is sorry…

Designing this A2 card with 80 lb paper, Orange and grey from my collection. I stamped Cat on another designer type paper, also from my collection,using Momento’s Ink- Tuxedo Black. My inspiration was an Orange Tabby Cat a friend had posted on Facebook. Iused Neenah white for the sentiment and grey cardstock, also from my collection for the stamped background and the fish on the grey. I stamped the fish with clear embossing ink and used white embossing powder. I distressed the whole card with Momento’s Tuxedo Black Ink and completed the card with Black Twine, Copic marker for the Cat’s collar and finished with a heart ♥️ gem from Nuvo’s Cherry Heart gems and Nuvo’s Crystal Glaze.

InkyStamper has done it again! The newest releases Dog and Cat have just arrived in my mailbox and I’m sharing the Dog Stamp and Die today.

I created this slimline card with Neenah White for the card base and images, inking the images with Momento’s Tuxedo Black and colored with Watercolor pencils from my collection. The other paper used on the card is from my stash as I’m trying to use up all of my scraps!
I distressed everything with Copic Marker #100 and twine for the party hat from my embellishment stash.
Happy late birthday y’all!

Happy 9th Birthday!

June 4, 2021

Today’s inspiration is my Grandson’s 9th Birthday. It doesn’t seem like it has been 9 years, but it really has as he’s fond of telling me! He makes me laugh.

I made this an A2 card from Neenah White for the card base and the sentiment shape and Bear. All image Stamps are by InkyStamper using the Bear Stamp and Goat stamp for the hat. I used the Happy Birthday sentiment from my collection along with the Little Letter Stamp set from Concord &9th for the personalization, all stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with Nuvo’s Watercolour Pencils: Roast Chestnut,Rustic Ochre,African Violet, Cotton Candy, English Ivy,Toffee Apple,True Blue, Tangarine Tango, Evening Primrose,Strawberry Milkshake and Potato Skin and distressing on the sentiment die cut with Nuvo’s Hybrid ink, Rubber Duck. The background layer is from Photo Play paper and the stripe is from Doodlebug Design’s Swiss Dot Rainbow Petite Print paper. I completed the card by using Red sequins from my stash and Nuvo’s Crystal Glaze. Mr. Birthday Bear is affixed to the card with a Wobble so he wiggles.

Brown, White and Pink Challenge

May 12, 2021

InkyStamper has a Brown, White and Pink Challenge for the month of May.

I created this Birthday card with the Bunny Stamp and Die Set and Mini Envie Die Set. The Dailey was a die from Thinlets that has been retired for eons. It’s so old that the price tag on the packaging was $2.95. Lol.

I used paper from my collection for the Dies and stamped images.

The card base is an A2 card and matching envelope from a big box store in Kraft brown, I used Doodlebug paper for the card front and the rest of the items are from my scrap stash.

The mini Envelope was cut from scraps of pink and lined with Dark brown cardstock . I tucked the Doily, cut from Neenah White Cardstock scraps into the mini Envie to add dimension.

The Bunny was stamped on Neenah White with Nuvo’s Black Shadow ink and colored with Copic Sketch markers. I heat embossed the sentiment with pink embossing powder and completed the card by adding tan twine to the balloons and a Pom Pom puff to the bunnies tail. The bunny is standing on grass washi tape by Doodlebug Design, Inc.

This bunny is wishing someone a happy Birthday and even brings the balloons for the celebration.

Thanks for visiting and enjoy.

Celebrate 🎉

Graduation time is just around the corner. I’ve created this card for a special graduate.

I built this card using Neenah White cardstock as an A2 base. I stamped images onto another single card panel in Neenah White and layering the cardstock . By using stamps from InkyStamper: Dragonfly, Herbs- RR003, Bee-BJ010 and using Nuvo’s Black Shadow ink, coloring the images with a combination of Nuvo’s Metallic Glitter Markers, Copic Sketch Markers and Aquarelle Brush Markers I fashioned the base panel and I embellished the images with Nuvo’s Aqua Shimmer in Midas Touch, Nuvo’s Crystal Glaze and Sulyn’s Crystal Diamond Extra Fine glitter. I stamped the Ralph Mouse (RR008)image from scraps out of my scrap collection with Nuvo’s Black Shadow Ink and colored him with Copic Sketch Markers. The sentiment is from the Market Tote Stamp Set , again stamped with Nuvo’s Black shadow Ink on another scrap and distressed with Nuvo’s Carrot Stick Ink cube.

I created the popped up flower with the Flowerette -DI0010 again using scrap paper and adjusting the die to make a smaller Flowerette. The leaf behind the Flowerette is from the Mini Envie Die Set- DI009.

I completed the card by distressing the card base edges with Nuvo’s Carrot Stick mini cube ink.

Thanks for stopping by to visit.

Silly Bee and Funky Chicken

May 10, 2021

Hello! Just another fun way to get inspiration. I saw this honeycomb multi colored paper and immediately started singing the ‘Funky Chicken’. You can Google the song it’s by Rufus Thomas. It ran through my mind all the while I was creating this card.

Choosing Stamps and Dies from InkyStamper.com

Bee, BJ010 and Chicken, UC002 both cut from Neenah White Cardstock, Stamped with Nuvo’s Black Shadow ink and colored with a combination of Nuvo’s Metallic Glitter Markers and Copic Sketch Markers.
Card base is paper from Neena cardstock,cut A2 size, scored and folded. Card front was created by layering with Hero Arts Hues Sampler Pack Paper and Doodlebug Design Buffalo check-wood grain rainbow petite prints and Paper Studio in Polygon Bright. I embellished with a piece of gold chicken wire ribbon, adhered with mini staples.

I had black glitter paper scraps in my collection die cut into the critters glasses and embellished them with gems from Picket Fence Gems, Reflections and Nuvo’s Crystal Glaze.
I stamped the sentiments from the Bee and Chicken Stamp Sets on Neenah White with Nuvo’s Black Shadow Ink, distressed with Nuvo’s mini cube ink in Rubber Duck. Both critters are adhered to the card with Wobbles from the InkyStamper store to make them dance.

Thank you for visiting and enjoy the song🎶

“You work both arms and you work both feet,…flap your arms and your feet start kicking, Then you know, you doing the funky chicken”

Christmas in April ????

Yes it is! it seems it is never too soon to start on my Christmas Cards! lol.

InkyStamper, http://www.inkystamper.com, released new dies on April 13, 2021 and this one screamed Christmas to me. I also added sequins for the monthly challenge. Hope you enjoy and thanks for visiting.

Here is my take:

I created the card with paper and embellishments from my crafting stash.

The card base was created with a card front from my stash and layered with another piece, zebra print. I cut the red piece 3″x 5″ and scored it at 1/2″ then folded and attached it to the card base on the back folding over the card base front. I placed another piece of Neenah card stock, again cut at 3″ by 5 1/4′ to the card base to mirror the flap front. I stamped the sentiment from InkyStampers Stamp set, RR009 Snow Angel on Nenaah Cardstock with Nuvo’s Black Shadow Ink.

I cut the Flowerette die from paper I have had in my paper collection and then folded into this pretty rosette and embellished it with Sequins from my collection and Gems from Picket Fence Studio -Fire. placing it on the red flap creating the card.
