rescuing a puppy…

Haven’t used this border punch in a very long time, so glad this challenge came along.
On a white card stock base card I stenciled Distress Oxide chipped sapphire and mowed lawn inks.
To get the grassy look I die cut a piece of card stock with a die from “MFT Pop Up Wiper Card Components” and used them to mask off the top then the bottom.
From white card stock I punched out the fence using a Martha Stewart fence punch that I shaded slightly with Copic grey markers and glued it to the card front.
On more white card stock I stamped the images from MFT Stamps “Woof You”, colored them with Copic markers, trimmed them out and applied them to the card front with faom tape and glue.
To finish I stamped the sentiment from the same set with Memento tuxedo black ink.

inspired by…

The idea of stopping at your favorite coffee shop with your granddaughter and getting her a cup of cocoa inspired this card.
As well as the colors!
The base card is white card stock with a layer of brown card stock and a strip of red card stock.
On watercolor paper I stamped the image and sentiment from MFT “Grande-Sized Love” using Memento rich cocoa ink and coloring it with Prismacolor pencils.
This I applied to the base card.

am I blue…

Not all Valentine’s need to be red!
The base card is blue card stock with a layer of white card stock.
I stamped the sentiment fom MFT “Warmest Wishes” with Versafine black ink.
The heart was made with blue card stock and a paper that leaves behind color, unknown company, that I ran through using a Sissix snowflake embossing folder.
Next I die cut it with a die from Card Deco Essentials “Heart” and glued it to the card front.
I stamped, on more white card stock, the image from the MFT set using Memento tuxedo black ink and colored it with Copic markers.
To finish I cut it out and foam taped it to the card front.
