Ruff Day? It’s Gonna Be Ok

Hi everyone! I’m here today with a card using techniques from Online Card Classes  – Copics for Cardmakers. I really wanted to stay updated with this class but time was really an issue and I was only able to create one card.

Here is my card —

Ruff Day


I started this card with a 5 1/2 by 4 inch panel of patterned paper from Lawn Fawn’s Hello Sunshine 6×6 paper pad. For the patterned paper quilt, I cut strips of paper from the same collection and adhered it with a quilt pattern. I am never one to use so much patterned paper, but I am slowly getting the hang of it.

For the image, I colored the dog from Critters in the Burbs with Copic markers. This class was a godsend. I would have never thought that I would be able to color with blending. The colors I used will be listed below.

For the sentiment, I created a custom sentiment using Milo’s ABC and a sentiment from the Love This set from Simon Says Stamp. I stamped the sentiment in Versafine Onyx black ink (my new fave ink) and clear embossed it for added shine.

To finish the card, I adhered the panel to some Sunshine card stock from Simon Says Stamp cut to a standard size with a fold on top. I also accented the collar and tag of the dog with some Clear Wink of Stella pen.

I am submitting this card to the Lawnscaping Challenge. The theme of this challenge is – using patterned paper.

That’s it for this card. Thanks for reading.


You + Me

Hi everyone! I’m here today with a card for the RetroSketches Challenge Blog. This is Challenge #132 and here is the sketch I used



Here is my card —

You and Me


I started this card with some Bazzill card stock in Fawn cut to a standard size card with the fold on top. I used a polka dot pattern from Pink Paislee’s Pen Pal collection for the bottom layer. For the focal image, I used the Sizzix Labels #3 as the panel. On top of the panel, I used the You and Me die from Sizzix and die cut the boy and the girl in more of the Pen Pal paper from Pink Paislee. I used the blue and pink heart paper to match boy and girl.

For the sentiment, I die cut the sentiment die You + Me using the same pink and blue paper and  I inlaid the letters  again to match. For the +, I colored white card stock with a red marker and die cut the +. To finish the card, I accented the letters and the heart above the boy and girl with the Clear Wink of Stella pen and then I added Glossy Accents on the heart to give it some dimension.  I attached both panels with foam tape.

That’s it for this card.
