Happy Birthday to the Top Dog

Made a card to send to one of my nephews who has a birthday coming up!

~ Happy Birthday to the TOP DOG ~

I used the stamp set called Tanner from Taylored Expressions to make this fun card!! I used one of the sentiments in the set to stamp with the Versamark ink pad onto the red card stock – creating a tone on tone look! I stamped the adorable dog on watercolor paper and embossed him with black embossing powder! Used the “Ziggy“s to color him!!

Morning Is NOT my Friend!

So, this morning I woke up early and could not go back to sleep.

I decided to go in my craft room and play!

~ Morning is NOT my Friend card ~

This fun and simple card started with a top folding Only Orange (SU!) card base. To that I added some scraps that were cut with Paper Smooches Scalloped Frames – I inlaid the middle back in the frame. I stamped the Coffee Loving girl from the Moka Sunshine set from Taylored Expressions onto watercolor paper. I stamped in black Versafine ink and embossed with clear powder. Of course, I colored her in with my “Ziggy“s, fussy cut her out and put her on my card with foam squares. A speech bubble was added and two of the sentiments from Moka Sunshine were added. One was embossed with white embossing powder. A few random enamel dots and jewels spiced it up!

As you can see, I tweaked my back rectangle to lean the other way. And my girl is there instead of the rectangle!

I made this card using scraps from my scrap box – pink and peach colored papers – I then die cut them with Stitched horizontal strips by My Favorite Things! The flower images and dies are from a set called Oh Happy Day from  Taylored Expressions. I used my “Ziggy”s to watercolor these flowers in using a wet paintbrush.
