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.
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.
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)

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!
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.
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!
