WWC298 – Kath\’s Challenge: Anything Masculine Goes


Hello, hello and welcome!  In my family \”puppy\” cards are always a hit and I created this one for Watercooler Wednesday\’s Challenge.  Kath is our hostess this week and we would love for you to play along.

This week we are creating masculine cards and I used MFT\’s Lucky Dog stamp and die bundle along with Honey Bee Stamps Square Window Trio

I die cut the three window frames,  Copic colored and die cut the pups and hand inked the background panel for a bright bold look.  

I am also playing along at:
Inkspirational \”Frame It\” I framed each of my cute pups.
Always Fun Challenges Anything Goes

UPDATE:  I was so pleased to see this card was a top pick at The Inkspirational \”Frame It\” Challenge!

I am so happy you stopped by today!



Corgi Birthday Card

For Christmas and Birthdays, my daughters like to receive a collection of handmade cards that they can give throughout the year.  Kristen has the most adorable Corgi named Newton so I know she will like this Corgi themed set.

Stamps of Life Corgi2stamp

This is a simple CAS card with a pop of dimension from the sequins.  A nice thing about this card is that it is appropriate to send to just about anyone….it can be a masculine card, for a child or a girlfriend.

The stamp set is Corgi2stamp from Stamps of Life.  I made four versions of this card, but this one is colored with Copic markers and embellished with cheerful red sequins.

I am entering this card in two challenges:

Corgis are the Best

My daughter has the most adorable Corgi, so I wanted  her birthday card to feature her beloved \”Newton\”.  I recently purchased the MFT Lucky Dog  set so that I would have a Corgi stamp.  I thought a clean and simple card with just Newton colored (and emphasized) would be a fun look.

I am happy with the way the card turned out and am entering it in several challenges:

Muse Challenge 271 (focusing on the dog, birthday and \”subjects in a row\” themes)

SSS Abby\’s Spring Showers with MFT Lucky Dog Card

I have two daughters and I wanted to send them each a personalized card.  My youngest has blond hair and lives with a 95 pound rescue dog named \”Tank\”.

MFT Lucky Dog

 My oldest has brown hair and lives with the most adorable Corgi named \”Newton\”.

I\’ve entered my card in: Addicted to Stamps Make Your Mark Challenge Link


I used SSS Abby\’s Spring Showers for each of the girls and MFT Lucky Dog for both pups.  I colored each card with Copic Markers.   I also \”made my mark\” and colored in  the sentiment for a brighter look.

Corgi Card for Terminally Ill Friend

I have been sending cards to a friend with cancer, but now that his prognosis is terminal, I have changed the type of handmade card I am creating.  Get well cards are no longer appropriate, but I still want my friend to know I am thinking about him.  My friend loves dogs (and dogs love him!) so I thought this cute Corgi would help brighten his day.  I used the MFT (My Favorite Things) Lucky Dog stamp set with the great sentiment \”Just Bepaws I  Care\”.

I am entering this card in the CAS on Friday Challenge #132 where the prompt this week is \”Cute\”.  Very few things are cuter that a Corgi.

MFT Lucky Dog

I Stamped the Corgi, colored him in with Copic Markers and then fussy cut the pup.  Next, I embossed the sentiment on black card stock.  I thought a clean and simple layout would work best so that the emphasis was on the dog and the sentiment.
