Rainbow Candles Clean and Simple Birthday Card

Hello! I hope you are all having a wonderful day today! I am sharing a clean and simple Birthday card with you today, that I think would be great to give to just about anyone. I ended up giving this card to my Dad earlier this summer for his 70th Birthday! I couldn't resist using this stamp set for his card just to add this sentiment to it! I love the sentiments in this stamp set they all make me laugh!

Supplies used: 
The stamp set is "Birthday Borders" from Simon Says Stamp with coordinating dies, stamped in Versamark Onyx Black ink
I colored in the candles with Promarkers 
I die-cut 2 white panels from 80# Neenah Solar White cardstock with Lawn Fawn Outside In Stitched Rectangle dies one of them is inside the card to make it easier to write the message to the recipient
Mounting foam was used to adhere the candles and I used my ATG gun to adhere the panel onto a Bazzill Licorice Twist card base.  

Thank you for visiting with me today! 
Have a great day and happy crafting!

A custom made dog sympathy card

Hello, my crafty friends! I know it's been a while, but I have so much to share with you! I was busy all summer making projects for a booth at our local fair that was held on Labor Day weekend and just didn't have the time to post them. I also have been working with a web designer in creating my own website with an online store called Imagination Attic! I am so excited about it, it launched just before the fair was held. I am still putting some final touches on it and adding products to the store, but it is up and ready for shopping! Okay on with the project that I am sharing with you today! I got a message from a friend a couple of weeks ago asking if I could make her a card that had this poem on it, they had just taken her husband’s service dog to the vet and sadly it had to be put down. I got to work right away, I pretty much just copied the photo that she sent me-pictured below. Here is what I came up with from the above photo:
I used my Cricut to write the poem, stamped a cute dog stamp I have from Stampin’ Up with Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink and colored it with Prismacolor pencils. I die cut the panel with Lawn Fawn outside in stitched rectangle dies and used a piercing tool to add a line of holes/dots between each line of the poem, used tea dye distress ink from Tim Holtz around the edges of the panel then mounted the panel onto some green cardstock that matches the color of their dog’s collar, it was also distressed on the edges but with Tim Holtz walnut stain distress ink
It came together pretty quick, it just took me a while to get it posted! Thank you for visiting my blog today, I hope I gave you some inspiration for your next project! Happy Crafting!
