Happy Holiday Cheer to You!

I have a lot of My Favorite Thing stamps so I decided to do a few of the Camp Create projects today.  Here is one for the day 2 for Masking.  I used Distress Inks to create the background for the fire/sky.  I used a stencil from Newton's Nook for the sky to add the stars.  I heat embossed the sentiment.

Canine Wisdom

My daughter got a puppy with her boyfriend a couple of months ago, and this is REALLY their baby.  She is so funny on how she treats him and talks about "Gus".  He is a Teddybear because she has a lot of allergies to pet dander.  She is struggling this week here in WI with ragweed.  This is a card that I made for her using an image from Digital Delights called Loving Paws Set and the sentiment is from TLC, Create.  I included a few pictures of Gus since I tend to get almost daily pictures or videos, hehe.

Just wanted to Brighten you day

Here is a card that I made using a fairy from the Paper Shelter along with a sentiment from TLC, Create.  I love sunflowers so this fairy appealed to me, Fairy Emma.  When I go to the store and they ask, "Is there anything that we can help you find?"  I always answer, "An elf, to clean my house."  Maybe I have to change my answer since I never get one to a fairy.

Newton's Gondola

I have a interactive card that I made using the Newton Dreams of Italy stamp set from Newton's Nook.  I made the water of watercolor paper and put on Distress Oxide Inks.  It is raised on foam tape so the image can slide.  I turned the sketch sideways.

Love is all around

I got this stamp from Art Impression when they had their birthday sale and I have finally used it.  I did some cleaning, and couldn't find my Memento ink pad so I used my Versafine which I think was too muddy.  I used my dies from My Favorite Things that were just retired and put pop dots behind the pink ones.  The image is two side so there is a front and back and I put a piece of patterned paper in between the image and the inside of the card.

So sorry for the loss of your furry friend

My Best Friend's Mother lost her dog the other day, so I made this card for her.  Her Mother is 87 years old and now she is so depressed because she is at that age where she wants a companion, but is afraid to have another critter in case she herself would pass away.  For this card I embossed some pawprints in the cardstock as well.
