Pretty Perennial Greetings

I absolutely love the versatility of this stamp set. I decided that we could use a little spring, as winter storms blow in, this month, so here are my February Team Swaps. If anyone is interested in doing a group swap with me, let me know – I love sending and receiving cards each month.

Tone on Tone projects usually call my name. Even when I’m quilting, I’ll often opt for a tone on tone look. In this card, I used Gorgeous Grape, Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight and Magenta Madness ink, on the same colour of cardstock to create the base flowers. I used the open petal die to cut out the matching piece for the top of the flower, and the flower die for the larger flower. My card base is Granny Apple Green. I used the Pinewood Planks embossing folder, on a piece of Basic White, as my matte. My greetings are from the Many Messages, stamp set.

Pampered Pets Condolences

With sadness, I made this card for my sister in law Sandy, and brother in law, Blake, for the loss of their gorgeous German Shepherd, Charlie. Charlie was a lovely girl, who loved everyone and especially loved “helping out” at their cattle farm. She’ll be missed, for sure.

Card base – Basic Black – 8-1/2 x 5-1/2 (score at 4-1/4)
Front Matte – Basic White – 4 x 5-1/4
Inside Matte – Basic White – 4 x 5-1/4
Basic Black Scrap for front Sentiment

I used a piece of the Poppy Parade DSP and Black 1/8″ from this month’s Paper Pumpkin for the front of the card, but of course you can use one of the prints in the .Playful Pets DSP.

I used the paw die to cut out the paws on the Basic White, top right, using the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine.

The sentiment on the Black banner is also from the Pampered Pets stamp set, stamped with Versamark ink, embossed with white embossing powder. I flagged the ends with my paper snips.

I put the dog and the black banner on Stampin’ Dimensionals. I used Resin Heart Embellishments for the banner, paw and dog’s heart. (Jan-June Mini)

I used the heart stamps on the flap on the envelope and inside the card, to finish it off. This card is very simple to make and easily do-able for even the newest stamper.
