Heartfelt Sympathy


Sympathy cards are not my favorite to create.  To make matters worse, I purchased the Love My Dog stamp set some time ago.....to make happy cards!  It was the perfect stamp set for a family member...but sadly the stamp never saw ink until a sympathy card was in order.  My stamping time has been limited lately, but this card was pushed to the front of the to do list.  I recently received the Simon Says Stamp monthly kit and decided to take a quick peak before making my card!  The November kit held some treasures that were perfect for my card, though not in the way one would expect.  I really went out side of the box for this one.  For starters I fell in love with the Metallic Copper envelope in the kit and decided it would be perfect to mail my card off in.  Then there was the Tsukineko Delicata Celestial Copper ink cube, which from first appearance appeared to be the perfect color choice for my Dachshund as well.  My original vision for this card was white on white.  As I inked up the Copper ink, it sadly fell flat on white, but had a lovely shimmer.  I solved my dilemma by inking up the Dachshund with Saddle Ink by Close To My Heart and then stamping again over the top with the Copper ink.  The end result was a Dachshund in the correct color with the perfect amount of shimmer.  Sadly you can not really see the shimmer in the photo, but it reminds me of the dog's shiny coat.  Back to my white on white theory.....it just didn't work for me.  Which bring me to the Copper envelope I had sitting out for  my card.  The color was PERFECT!  I quickly cut up the envelope and added a black card base and was pleased with the result.  If only the kit had included more than one envelope, it would have been perfect!  I do love the copper color though and think I need to add the color to my stash!

Mojo Monday #468


It is contest week at Mojo Monday...we all need more stamps, so head over and join in on the fun!  I am still stamping away with the Monstrous Halloween Bundle and Jeepers Creepers papers.  Love those little monsters and the coordinating dies make adding them to projects easy peasy!  I was obviously in need of some crafting therapy....as this card is all about the details.


I added a stamped sentiment and layers to my metal tag die.  I could not bring myself to cut my ribbon, so I twirled the ribbon and left it as is on the card.  Once again, the googlie eyes make a presence.  Love the movement they add to my card.  A little bit of bling was added by cutting my borders with black glitter paper.  I created "goo" along the bottom edge of my card with the Die-namics Icicle Border die....when cut with black glitter paper.....it easily passes as "goo".  My monster is popped up to jump off the page!


I added more bling to the inside by carrying over the glitter paper to the inside as well.  I am still working on my camera issues, so sadly you can not see all the crisp details.  My card is based on the Mojo Monday #468 sketch.

CAS #192


I created a super clean card for the CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge this week.  I wasn't sure it was going to have enough layers for my liking, but I really like the end result.  I love the card in person, the photo....not so much.  I think I am going to have to find another camera.  Mine appears to be on it's last leg.  I have cleaned it and it seems to have one problem after another.  So sadly, you guys are not able to view the sharp crispness of my card.  In person, the sentiment is crisp....on the photo is appears to fade into the background.  I love making cards....editing the photos, not so much!  The card is super simple to  make and could easily use up many of those paper scraps you have been hoarding.  The stitched dies really add the finishing touch.  Here is the sketch my card is based on-


I added a stitched layer to the inside as well.
