Raining Cats and Dogs card by designer Lori Williams


Raining Cats and Dogs Card by Lori Williams 
You are so going to love the latest release of adorable stamps featuring Cats and Dogs by Graphic 45.  Every animal owners need to be sure to get each of these stamp sets as they are just so stinkin cute.  

Today’s card uses the coordinating paper from the Cats and Dogs collection, but the star of this card is the stamped cat in the middle.  I started off with a Kraft based card, inked and rounded the edges.  I then layered two of the designer patterned papers inked and rounded the edges on those too.  Next I made a scalloped border across the middle.  I added a bit more detail to the top and bottom using the swirling stamp.  This is one that I’m finding I’m using over and over again on projects.  It just adds that little something extra that every card needs.  Then the layering begins,  I used a piece of chipboard from the collection and backed it with the red polka dot paper.  Next I stamped the kitty cameo on some cream colored cardstock and fussy cut out.  I attached it with foam tape to the middle and then added the final bow on the top.  
Be sure to get these stamp sets as they a really are must have  :

3. Cut a single sheet of white cardstock to measure 3.5" x 5"

Happy Birthday Tag by designer Gretchen McElveen


Happy Birthday tag by Gretchen McElveen

Hi there! 
I got a little “green” the other day and used the backing from a package of buttons to make this easy birthday tag. The backing that the buttons came attached to was perfect for a cute tag! It already has a hole in the top and the bottom has a cute scalloped border. No way I could just throw it away! So I covered up everything printed on the backing with some patterned paper in the “Birthday Bisque” line from Jillbean Soup and the tag started taking shape! I added a die cut star and some star confetti (from KI Memories!) to embellish around the sentiment. Then I finished it off with some ribbon at the top! Thanks for looking!

Love Today card by designer Patty Folchert


Love Today Wedding Card
The new Doilies and Woodgrain stamp and stencil set from Jillibean Soup helped me to create a chic non-traditional wedding card. 

Love Today card by Patty Folchert

Using the doilies from the set I stamped them onto the cream card base using black ink. Then I added the flashcard with a charcoal gray cardstock mat. Next I added the KI Memories black glitter dots and the Wise Words Love sticker. Then I added the icon sticker couple with 3D foam dots and one large clear wood sprinkle for a dramatic effect.


A surprisingly simple card that makes a big statement for that big day! I really love these doily stamps, so versatile.

Stamped with Love,
Patty
