Blue Ribbon King Charles

Good Morning Ladies,
It seems a little brisk out there this morning. Windy has a need to run in and out to remind me how cold it is.
The card for today is Blue Ribbon King Charles
This card was created using Dog Stamps Plus Stamps. The dog image is a King Charles Spaniel. He was stamped on white cardstock with black ink. He was then hand cut. The ribbon was stamped on white cardstock using versa mark ink and embossed with a blue embossing powder. I used my new collection of Washi tape. The blue cardstock is textured. This is a square card.

This is the inside sentiment. The sentiment is from FSJ (fun stampers journey)

Graphics 45 Little Boy Blue

Good Morning Ladies,
It snowed again last night. I know one thing when spring comes it will be one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen.
The card for today is Graphics 45 Little Boy Blue
This is a simple card created with the Mother Goose Graphics 45 pad. The top star border is washi tape. I have just ordered and started playing with washi tape. I am loving it. It adds that little something extra to a project. I think baby cards are a hard thing for me to create. This one seemed to go together in a snap.

This is the inside sentiment from a Technique Tuesday set. And another piece of washi tape.

VLVS Super Boy

Good Morning Ladies,
Dude and I went to agility training last night. We had a good time and it was good to get out of the house for something fun.
The card for today is VLVS Super Boy
This was a fun card to make. The super boy is an image from VLVS (viva las vegas stamps). It was stamped on Bristol paper and colorized using watercolor crayons. He was then hand cut. He is popped up on the scene behind him. The background was colorized with Andirondack ink and stipple brushes. The grass was cut with an IO die and the sun was cut with an old big kick die. The sun die is still one of my favorite dies.

A view to show the popping.

FSJ Happy Birthday Cat

Good Morning Ladies,
I am getting a slow start to the morning. But it seems a little warmer out there today. Of course the dogs are sleeping by my feet instead of running in and out this morning.
The card for today is FSJ Happy Birthday Cat
This card was created using FSJ (Fun Stampers Journey) images. The cat and hat are from two different sets but work well together. They were stamped with licorice ink and colorized with watercolor crayons. They were then hand cut and put together on a lime green oval. Ink that matches the cardstock was used to stamp the sentiment. This is a new way to use ink for me and I really like it. The dsp is from a pack also from FSJ. This pack has four designs double sided. So really 8 designs. Love that also. Purple twine is tied at the bottom of the card.
This is the inside sentiment.

Pony Express VLVS

Good Morning Ladies,
Yesterday was a pretty warm day. I took advantage of it and did a lot of running around town. I took new cards to the Co-op Shoppes. I did not blog. By the time I figured it out it was too late.
The card for today is Pony Express VLVS
This card was inspired by my new VLVS (viva las vegas stamps). That is where the pony express rider came from. He was stamped on Bristol paper with black archival ink. He was then colorized with watercolor crayons. A spellbinders die set was used to cut him and the black mat out. The sentiment is from FSJ. A lasso was created using kitchen twine.
