Sympathy Card

Occasionally, we need a sympathy card for a dear friend or relative.  I made this card using the Heartfelt Creations Flowering Dogwood collection of paper, dies and stamps besides the gorgeous Heartfelt Creations Regal Border and Pocket and Heartfelt Creations Fleur Border Basic die set purchased from The Rubber Buggy on-line store.  

The card measures 6 1/4" wide and 8" in length.

This is the inside of the card using the Heartfelt Creations Flowering Dogwood paper.  


I added the US Artquest Mini Sage Advice prills in the center of the dogwood flowers to give the flowers more of a realistic appearance.  I just added a touch of glue in the center of each flower and used a small spoon to add the prills.  

The flowers were stamped on vellum using the Heartfelt Creations Flowering Dogwood stamp with Ranger Silver Pearl embossing powder and cut out with the Heartfelt Creations Flowering Dogwood die set.  I sponged the tips of the petals with  the Ranger Pink Gumball ink and molded the petals with flowering molding tools.  I cut out the leaves with Ranger black ink and sponged some green ink to the edges before molding the leaves with a flowering molding tool and my fingers.  

I added a seam binding bow behind one flower.  
Hope to inspire you to make a card similar or just get out your wonderful supplies for The Rubber Buggy to start crafting this spring.

Graduation Card



The card measures 5 1/4" x 7" but could be made smaller.  I used the following dies:

I used blue, black and white card stock for the card and silver metallic card stock for the "Congrat" and part of the tassel.  Just cut out the tassel and roll it and adhere the silver metallic card stock around the tassel.  Adhere string from the tassel to the middle of the mortar board and adhere the small oval on top of the string.  

I used Microsoft Word document to print out the "Class of 2017" on white card stock and cut it out and adhere is to the card next to the silver and white ribbon and bow.  I embossed the white card stock with Sue Wilson embossing folder and adhere the mortar board and then adhere the white card stock on the blue card stock.  Behind the blue and white is black card stock.  I added a rectangle rhinestone buckle slider to the bow.    


I hope that I inspired you to make your next cards using the Frantic Stamper Mortar Board and Tassel die sets from the April's release to make your graduation cards.    Also, make sure to stop by to see what Frantic Stamper creative and talented design team made for you:

Happy Birthday Photo Doggie Album


I had a lot of fun making this photo album rather than a birthday card for my daughter-in-law this year.  Little Hudler, a Golden Retriever, is their new addition and this is a 
6-month time line of photos of their little doggie.  


The supplies from The Rubber Buggy were the Heartfelt Creations Pampered Pooch collection paper, dies and stamps along with the Heartfelt Creations Delightful Daisy stamp and die set.  

The size of each photo is 5" x 7".  The front (above) has the Heartfelt Creations Delightful Daisy stamp and HC Delightful Daisy die set.  The album has the Heartfelt Creations Pampered Pooch paper, Heartfelt Creations Pampered Pouch Paw-fect Pooches die and HC Pampered Pouch Paw-fect Pooches stamp set as well as the HC Pampered Pouch You're Paw-fect stamp set.  
I cut out the frames measuring 5 " x 7" using the Spellbinder Rectangle Nestabilities dies. 



Sponged the paw with Ranger Distress Antique Linen ink.



Embossed paws were with Ranger White Weather embossing powder

Other supplies:
Ranger Weathered White embossing powder, Ranger Brown embossing powder
 Blue, green, cream and yellow Bazzill card stock
Ranger Antique Linen Distress Ink,  Memento Tuxedo Black ink
Yellow Flower Soft for center of each daisy
