Introducing puppy!

Share |

If you want to take a look at the new little bundle of fluff that's been taking up so much of our time lately....introducing Crumbcake!

He's a 4 month old Shih Tzu puppy that is s full of love & energy it's pawsitively exhausting. We love him dearly (even if the cat doesn't!

Here's a quickie page I put together of him from when he first came home plus a little video of him playing with Curly Cat!

17 years of loooooooooove!

Share |

Time sure flies when you're having fun, or at least that's what I'm telling myself as Big Shot Brent and I celebrate 17 years together today!

What do you think -- should he be getting a love card today, or a congratulations for making it this far one??? hahahaha!

Here's how you get the centre image like the one on this card: sponge Classic Stampin’ Ink over an image you’ve already stamped in VersaMark and then heat-embossed with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder.

Then create a mask area using a Post-it Note or something similar to cover up the stamped butterfly image, and you're ready to over-stamp it using the En Francais background stamp. Remove the Post-it and you're all set! This sponging & masking will really pop the butterfly pop up from your card.

"Celebrate" card

Share |

Unique backgrounds really make your cards stand out.

Luckily for us, Stampin' Up! has a variety of different styles of background stamps to choose from!

This Celebrate card uses our gorgeous Hello, Doily Background Stamp for a look that's bold -- and trendy!

If you're looking for a hint as to how the ribbon on the card got all fun and loopy? Try using your heatgun on different ribbons and see what happens. Just be careful not to burn it!

In this beautiful card, the Curly Label punch was used to create a frame for the watercoloured image. Some Pearl Basic Jewels added the perfect finishing touch!
