I made a card to send to the local veterinary clinic, thanking them for the great care they give to Sophie, the nursing home dog who happens to come home with me each night. They give her free routine care, a break on all medications including heartworm, flea & tick, and whatever other medications she may need, and discounts on vet care when she gets ill. I thought the sentiment on this card would be perfect to send them:
I cut the card out on the Silhouette using Echo Park cardstock, then masked the top of it, stamping the front of the card with the Market Street Stamp background stamp, "Hearts-a-Plenty" (retired) in a matching ink (Close to my Heart Outdoor Denim). MSS has the best background stamps -- they are huge - and easy to stamp with! Love them! I own about every one they make. Then, I used another background stamp, "Houndstooth", and stamped on Echo Park cardstock using a contrasting ink, Close To My Heart cranberry. The dog, stamped using the MSS stamp set, "Pawprints on our Hearts", also uses Echo Park cardstock. He is accessorized with stamps from the set. A gold star from my stash finished the card. Or so I thought.
A couple evenings later, while eating supper, my husband asked, "What's Sophie got?" Well, evidently SHE didn't feel the card was complete. She had taken it down from a shelf and left her signature on it. When she got done, it looked like this:
And, I'm sharing one more project on the Market Street Stamps blog today. It's been cold and snowy here in NW Wisconsin, so I made this snowman framed art.
He uses the Market Street Stamps "Joyful Snowman" stamp set and the beautiful "Flurries" background stamp. I paper pieced the snowman, used a water brush and re-inkers on the hat, scarf, and nose. I used the Flurries background stamp and stamped it several times, then layered them with some contrasting gray Close To My Heart cardstock inbetween layers. I mounted it on a retired piece of CTMH designer paper and used a bow from 3 Girl Jam to finish it up.
I'm giving away some blog candy to celebrate my recent addition as a design team member to 3 Girl Jam, and to celebrate this guest designer day. If you 'd like a chance to win, please follow my blog and leave a comment on today's post. I'll choose the winner tomorrow.
Thanks so much for stopping by. I'll be featured again at Market Street Stamps on March 8, so please come back then.
