  Well, This Just Stinks

Hello Friends,

Joe has had the bug that has been going around for over a week now.   I've been taking great pains to avoid the whole thing, but it looks like I will not come off unscathed.  So today's blog post is a super quick and simple "Well, This Just Stinks " Card complete with a Punch Art Skunk.  Really, any excuse will do to play with the cute Fox Builder Punch and the Foxy Friends Stamp set.

Comfort & Healing and Heart Hope

Comfort & Healing and Heart Hope

 

Hello Friends,

My heart filled with dread recently when I found out that my mother was diagnosed with AFib (an irregular heart beat that can be felt as a fluttering or thumping in your chest).  In a nutshell, the major risk with AFib is a stroke.  Mom has a little dog named Bella, so I thought that it would be appropriate to make her a card with the Bella & Friends stamp set.  But my card focus is  Comfort & Healing and Heart Hope.

 

Bella & Friends Stampin' Up!

 Tips and Tricks

 I spent a couple of minutes fussy cutting my dog, so that I could frame her with hope and a heart which a die cuts from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits Dies set.  I love that set!  There's just something really playful about the swirly, whirly dies.

The bold and happy Cucumber Crush looks so fabulous with the softer blue and yellow.  I'm going to miss Cucumber Crush.  It's a 2015-2017 In Color, which means that its days are numbered.  The Stampin' Up! Retirement list is schedule to come out on April 10 which means Bye, Bye Cucumber Crush and its friends Mint Macaron, Delightful Dijon, Watermelon Wonder and Tip Top Top.  The matching washi tape is from the Affectionately Yours package.

For a the look of sunshine, I splashed a bit of So Saffron behind my Comfort and Healing sentiment (Flourishing Phrases stamp set) and sprinkled just a little bit more with a splatter stamp from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set.

Sunshine Wishes

Coloring Tips

Don't be afraid to mix mediums when coloring.  I colored Bella with Watercolor Pencils and a Blender Pens, so that her fur looks soft and cuddly.   But I wanted her collar to be a little bolder and brighter.  That's where markers take over.  The Cucumber Crush marker compliments the Cucumber Crush Stitched Circle and the Affectionately Yours Washi Tape.

Handmade Card

 I carried the Sunshine Wishes and the Flourishing Phrases through to the inside of my card to let Mom know that I love her and think about her more often than I say.

Color Throwdown

Color Challenge

Color Challenges are a good jumping off point if you find yourself stuck in your card making endeavors.   Today's color challenge of light yellow, blue and green is from Color Throwdown.   I chose So Saffron, Soft Sky and Cucumber Crush.
