The first card is for Wednesday, August 5, 2009 Day 158 - What's Your Sign? at 365 cards. I was going to make a sign and 'stick' it in some 'picture' and that just sounded like too much work! Then I remembered my Stampendous Happy B-Day stamp and decided to use it since it hasn't been inked yet. Plus, my daughter has made cards with this stamp and they are so cute! I tried to color it with Prisma pencils and sponge shading like she does, but she is and always will be better at coloring than I am! Here is as card she made with the Thinking of U stamp and below is my version...
The next card, Having a RRRUFF day? is for Thursday, August 6, 2009 Day 159 - Setting the Scene - Indoors at 365 Cards. I knew I wanted to use the chair from SU! Funky Favorites, a really, really old set. I bought it on E-Bay because I liked the Mary Engelbreit look of it. That was a while back and I am now just using it for the first time!
I Versamarked the chair on black and the dog on So Saffron and then clear embossed. That way I was able to get the color of the stamps without using different colors of ink or embossing powder. The chair flowers and dog are colored with gel pens. I found the idea for the room from Glittergal on Splitcoast and then I saw Carolyn's card this morning. Honestly Carolyn, I made this card last night before I saw yours! LOL
I added the little rug for the pooch by embossing 3 consecutive Nesties oval shapes and then cutting it out with a Nestie oval scallop . The dog and sentiment are from Clear Stamps, DOGS. The paper and card stock are all SU!
This was a fun card to make. I think I will send it to my gran-puppy Malie. It reminds me of her being home alone all day while Kim works so hard. Oh please, I must stop, my heart is just sobbing for poor Malie! (I can just hear Kim saying, "Oh please, Mother!") I know she has to work, it's one of those hard realities of life!
Stay cool this week-end, it will be hot in the Midwest, turn on the air, grab a chair, a good book and relax!
