Go Fetch!!

As promised card #2 from my inky session!

~Fetching You a Happy Birthday~

dogfetchadj

To make this card I used the Fetching Friendship set from Newton’s Nook to stamp that lovable black lab. scraps were used to cut the pinked circle and the torn rectangle. I stamped the tennis ball on the green paper. I colored in with my “Ziggy”s.  After assembling all the pieces I decided to jazz it up with some Double Click Skittles and some wood veneer arrows that I inked up so they were matching the colors on the card.

I got inky in my craft room today – had way too much fun and made way too big of a mess!!

~ I made this card ~

sodaPOPadj

This card is for my husband – he loves Soda POP and he always delights us with his sense of humor!

To make this card I took a Bliss Blue card and added some paper scraps to it! I stamped the soda bottle from the Happy Meal set from Your Next StampI also stamped the sentiment on the red strip using the Fast Food Fun Sentiments set – also from YNS. Then I embossed it! I added some DoubleClick Skittles to add a little pizzazz and then I was done with this fun Father’s Day card.

redpickupsig

I made this card using the Loads of Love SU! stamp set – I stamped the truck and the sentiment on watercolor paper using a Versafine Black inkpad and then embossed with clear embossing powder!!

I fussy cut the tag and the truck! I colored the truck in using Zig markers010 Black, 090 Grey and 022 Carmine Red and a Winsor & Newton Cotman round 2 brush

Using Backdrop Builders from Paper Smooches I cut the road and the grass from scraps and layered them with the blue cloud paper – using a Circle die from My Favorite Things I cut the layered pieces into a circle!

The yellow paper is from my scraps and I used a white signo gel pen to draw stitches around the paper and I used a Corner Chomper on the bottom right corner!! Tag and truck were added with foam squares and the tag was tied with black twine!

The DoubleClick Skittles colors I used on this are: Lemon and Pebble Glitter
