WWC277 – Tristan\’s Challenge: All About Occasions

Hello and Welcome!  This week we are making occasion cards at Watercooler Wednesday and Kath is our hostess.  I\’ve chosen to make a birthday card for my daughter.  Kristen has the most adorable Corgi name Newton, and he was the inspiration for this card.
Lawn Fawn Quilted Backdrop background die

 A while back I saw this Corgi stamp and purchased it right away. I wanted to put together a little birthday scene so I thought a birthday cake on a bench would be cute.  I stamped, Copic colored, fussy cut and die cut the elements.  The background is a pretty cover die.   The sentiment is new to me, but I am really happy with it. I added some Tonic Nuvo glaze to the frosting and candles and I really like the shine it added.

I wanted to make the card extra special, so I put a second \”pop-up\” Corgi inside.

Supplies:
Stamps of Life: Corgis2Stamp stamp
WPlus9 \”New Home\” bench stamp and die
Jane\’s Doodles \”Party Time\” cake stamp
MFT \”Lucky Dog\” stamp and die (pop-up Corgi)
Lawn Fawn Quilted Backdrop die
Sentiment:  Jillibean Soup (heat embossed and die cut)
Tonic Nuvo Glaze
Black Gel Pen for accents
Neenah Paper
Copic Markers

Allsorts \”Pet Challenge\” This birthday card is for my daughter who has a Corgi named Newton.

Cut it Up \”Perfect Pet\” Challenge  Newton the Corgi is the friendliest pet you are sure to meet and he is die-cut twice (front and pop-up inside).
Happy Little Stampers Die Cutting Challenge Lots of die-cutting on this card:  background, sentiments, images and pop-up Corgi.

Try it on Tuesday – Create a Scene a fun little birthday scene.

UPDATE:I was so pleased to discover this card was selected as a \”top cut\”!


I am happy with the card and am looking forward to putting it in the mail to Kristen.  

I am so pleased that you stopped by!

Sympathy Card

 Hello and welcome! I was in need of some sympathy cards and I thought it might be nice to create a little scene using the bench from a stamp and die set (WPlus9 New Home) that just arrived in the mail.
Sympathy Card using Altenew Garden Grow, Hero Arts January 2019 My Monthly Hero and WPlus9 New Home.
I wanted to pair it with two of my go-to stamp and die sets:  Altenew Garden Grow and Hero Arts January 2019 My Monthly Hero.  I started by stamping a background using SSS Sketchy Lines Background Stamp.  From black cardstock, I die cut the sentiment (SSS) twice and then glued together.  I Copic colored the potted plants, then die cut, assembled and adhered to the background using foam tape. 
I am entering this card in:

As You See It Challenge.  My \”go to\” dies that I use most often are Altenew\’s Garden Grow and My Monthly Hero January 2019.  I love to use them both in scene cards. 
Thank you for stopping by!
