Live Wild & Free

Hey there! I made this card using the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches 274 and the color combo from Color Throwdown 429 and then failed to photograph it and post it in time for either. Oh well. Still thought I'd go ahead and share it here on the blog though.


During Tracey McNeely's "25 Days of Christmas Tags" event I won a gift certificate to Altenew. A BIG THANKS to Tracey and Altenew for the awesome prize!!! One of the stamps I purchased with my gift certificate was this fabulous Wood Pallet Background! I absolutely love it!!! I think you'll be seeing a lot of it on my cards in the near future!

And here are the sketch and color combo that inspired my card:

I Love You

I recently won the beautiful Floral Heart Stamp Set and coordinating dies from Neat & Tangled, and I was super excited to finally have a chance to put these goodies to use while Pepper and Tony were out hunting on Saturday. A BIG THANK YOU to Danielle from Neat & Tangled for the fabulous prize package!!!


I started by stamping and coloring the image on white cardstock. Then I die-cut the outside and inside of the heart using the coordinating dies. I die-cut the outside of the heart again on a piece of masking paper and used the negative space to do some inking in the center of my card panel. I stamped the sentiment in the center, adhered the die-cut heart, added some white dotty details to the wreath with a gel pen, and finished it off with a few glitter sprinkles.

I had so much fun creating this card!

And since this was my first time using these new stamps and dies I'm going to enter this into Darnell's NBUS Challenge 10:

lab-adore you

Hello there! I'm playing along with two challenges today:





I'm planning to make some homemade dog treats to give to Pepper's friends in the neighborhood for Valentine's Day. Here are the tags I created to dress up the little treat bags:


I absolutely adore that little lab image from Avery Elle's Furry Friends Stamp Set! She looks just like our Pepper!!! So sweet! The envelope is from Gleeful Gardens (Lawn Fawn). I dressed it up with a teeny heart from Stinkin' Cute (Lawn Fawn). I used my craft knife to cut a tiny slit to slip the envelope into, so it would look like the dog was carrying it. 

I was inspired by the colors, strips of patterns/textures, and the shape of Lynn's tag in the inspiration photo. And of course the polka dots for the Inkspirational Challenge were calling my name!

Oh...and here's a look at the back of the tag:


It says: "lab-adore you"! And now that I look at it...I'm thinking I'll add a die-cut red heart to the bottom corner (by the "you")...but anyhow. I saw this sentiment in a Newton's Nook set that I don't own (yet) and thought it was a perfect fit. I used Sophisticated Script (Concord & 9th) to spell out "lab" and Harold's ABCs (Lawn Fawn) for the rest. The little dash was added with a Copic multiliner pen.

Thanks for visiting!

Hope you're having a great week so far!
