Lynne Jardine - Barking on the front porch

Here’s an adorable card from Lynne. Usually when the Porch with light stamp gets used, the edges are off the card. But here she’s “floated” it which I think looks great. Lynne said she stamped the images and colored them in with her watercolor pencils. She then popped Webster and the bottom step/plant up on dimensional to add a little interest. The sky she chalked in background (a hint of clouds) and then added clear gloss to the light. I just love all the little embellishments – her sketchy lines, the little arrow that seems to hold it all in place and then bit of bling. Oh so cute.

stamping: here comes fall
Right now I’m loving watercolors. I stamped Crumbs and Baxter in black but weren’t sure what the scene was going to be in the beginning. I decided to stamp Bunch of grass twice in green. I knew I wanted the paper airplane to pull something…but what? Then it hit me! A leaf and “here comes fall”.

I watercolored everything, stamped the sentiment with an alphabet set and then added a little bit of Distress Ink around the edge. I tied a green ribbon bow and mounted the card on two pieces of paper – green with a linen print and then polka dots. Then I got out my sewing machine and added just a bit of stitching. I thought it came out pretty cute.

Here’s a close up.

Alex made this fun party card! She used Cupcake the dog (who already comes with a party hat) and then added a party hat to Go kitty go. I think kitty can’t wait to get to the cake! She added some wonderful sequins and glittered the whole card for sparkle!

Lynne Jardine - Webster

Here’s a sweet birthday card from Lynne. Having the multi colored zig zag background adds a whole lot of fun to this card’s background. I love how she’s added the big red circle, but cropped it in the corner. It really calls attention to little Webster and his bark bubble. She said that she used her watercolor pencils to color him in and added a little clear gloss to his nose and eyes. Adding a bit of dimensional tape behind Webster and the bark bubble made them pop even more.

Holly-Eat-Cake-Graphics-thank-you

I’ve been seeing all the craze there’s been with watercolors and stamping so the lines of the stamp somewhat disappear. I decided to give it a try with this card using my Rowley jumps yippee! stamp multiple times. I think I still need a little practice – I see the lines of the stamps a little more than I wanted to. But I think it came out pretty swell.

After watercoloring Rowley I thought I’d like some faint clouds in the background so I got out my colored pencils and picked the lightest blue I could find. I also added a little pencil texture to the puppies too.

Donna West - Happy Birthday

Here’s a wonderful little birthday card from Donna. I just love the neutral background of dots and stripes. She did a wonderful job coloring matching the dog to the background and then making the kitty pop just a bit more with a darker color. I love all the finishing details too – the scallop edges, the stitching dots and the little piece of twine.

Lynne Jardine - To the world

Lynne said, “I’ve always loved this sentiment, and simply adore the sweet little girl and dog.”

I really love what she did, not only with the wonderful sweet coloring but all the little details. She said that she colored it with her watercolor pencils and added a big of bling to the dog collar. She doodled a fun little border around the card (saying that she can’t draw a straight line so she usually breaks them up – what a grand idea). She used a little die cut heard border and added the little paw punch in the corner. Just soooooo sweet.

Shellie Nelson - santa stop here

Here’s a wonderful Christmas card from great customer Shellie Nelson! I’m a dog lover so this card really makes me happy. Santa has been overrun but I think he’ll be ok. I don’t think he should have walked in with that little dog cookie Shellie included in his hand. She’s done a wonderful job with her colors and I love the embellishments – from cutting out all the dogs so they’ll stand out, the sign, adding a pom-pom to Santa’s hat and the little bit of tinsel. Just wonderful!

And here are a couple of close ups:

Aileen Ryan- cat and dog wall

So I thought I would take a little break from the holidays and post this card from great customer Aileen Ryan. She actually posted this on her blog for a challenge she did. The great wall is actually a piece of paper. She said that Frisky was just walking along and little Callie the dog shouted Woohoooo! I think the card is just so fun! And don’t worry, no animals were harmed in the making of it. :)

Kim Klinkovsky - Not lostKim Klinkovsky - Not lost details

It’s time for Stuart and Scooter to go on an adventure! Kim did a wonderful job on this oh-so-fun traveling themed card. She said this stamp is versatile for many occasions and that Stuart and Scooter and their paper box airplane remind us to never stop playing, smiling, and dreaming. The postage stamp embossed paper is perfect to document their travels. She colored Stuart and Scooter with Copic markers, Ranger Tim Holtz mini ink and a blender pen, and a little sparkle here and there with glitter pens.

Kim did a fabulous job putting this card together, her coloring, all the dimension and finishing things off with the perfect embellishments.
