Crazy Dog Graduation card

One of my favorite stamp sets is the Crazy Dog set. Yes I love most of my Stampers Anonymous Stamp sets, but this one holds a special place in my heart.



I think the reason I love it so much is because it is...well...very cute for one, but really because it is so versatile. I have used this set to create Fall cards, Christmas Cards and now I am creating a graduation card.

This card was very easy to make. Here is a video to share my process. I just love his expression!


When creating graduation cards, I don't like to use a traditional sentiment on the outside like Congratulations or Happy Graduation.  I like to find a sentiment that will give a little advise to the graduating student. While these kids may think they know everything, they still may have a few things to learn in their journey of life.

Some of Tim Holtz's sentiments are perfect for this. They deliver fun cards with fun messages.

Thanks for stopping by.

MHKDesigner Post - Just my Type

Hi everyone and welcome to my Designer inspiration for MHKDesigns.

Today I am sharing with you an image from one of my favorite sets from MHKDesigns called The Write Stuff.


It is available over at the MHKDesigns Etsy shop along with many other wonderful sets.


The Write Stuff
This card was so simple to make and I just love the way it turned out. I had some extra rub ons, so I used them to create my background.  I then matted my background onto some black cardstock.

I used the typewriter and sentiment as my focal point and popped it up using some foam dots.

It is a fun and simple black and white card that was a lot of fun to create.



Thanks for stopping by!

Random Act of Kindness Day & Giveaway

Today is National Random Act of Kindness Day! So what does that mean? Well, it is just like it sounds, it is a day to spread kindness, but it is Random and typically unexpected by the recipient.




In honor of RAK, I decided to create some ATC's and send them out to some random people.  I have stamped the back of my ATC's with a stamp from Simply Stamps.




Simply Stamps has a specialty section,which provides several styles of these Random Act of Kindness stamps. These can be used for envelopes, cards, or the back of ATC's.

To create these cards, i simply pulled out a few of my scrap papers, some collage medium and my scissors.



Using my tonic scissors, i cut out some rectangles and triangles to create some small houses.  I adhered the shapes onto a 2.5" x 3.5" piece of heavy decorative card stock using matte collage medium



To mute down the colors a bit, I applied some gesso to the top of my design and thinned it out using a baby wipe.  



I then outlined my houses using distress crayons and rubbed in those colors using my collage medium.



Finally, I picked out some word phrases to add to my ATC and stamped the back with my Random Act of Kindness Stamp.



I will be doing a giveaway on my You Tube Channel as my Random Act of Kindness so be sure to check that out in the linked video above.

Thanks for stopping by!
