gone to the dogs…

I’m making pet-related cards to sell at a local vet clinic where my niece works as the head vet tech. She is planning to take a mission trip to the Dominican Republic to help with their pet populations. So, I’m going to sell the cards I make there and all proceeds to go defray the cost of her trip!!

Magnificent dress

magnificent dressHere’s my CASE of several cards using one of the dress dies cut down to look like a little sweater over the other sleeveless dress. Added SU! half pearls and an SU! sentiment from the Perfect Words set. All CS, DSP and ribbon is from SU! as well.

I’m here for you…

I love this SU! hostess set…there are so many possibilities for using it!! And, if you’re me, you have so many accessories to add to a neat layout. Here I’ve used the MFT fence and grass die cuts, then used the SU! Cloudy Day embossing folder and the SU! mini curly label punch for the sentiment. After embossing the clouds, I cut out several of them and then stamped the rain and put the cut out clouds over the rain using pop dots. The fence and grass are adhered over the girl with pop dots as well, for dimension. I tied miscellaneous Michael’s shiny twine around the card. I really like the way this turned out…and I didn’t even mean for it to be mostly green for St. Patrick’s Day!! when it rains.

A few other cards…

Just a few other cards I’ve been working on…love the new Country Born set from CTMH…who could pass up the quote from Alabama?!? And, hexagons are all the craze!! Love this honeycomb set from CTMH. Other cards are using all Stampin’ UP materials and stamps.

Be an original

I finally broke down and ordered the cute SU All Dressed up stamp set and coordinating dies…I’ve been drooling over the cute cards being made with this. I’ve had this layout in my head and I got to put it into action this morning. I love the SU glimmer paper and how the middle dress turned out using it. All products are from Stampin’ UP! original glimmer dress
