Friends are like flowers ...

I always forget to use my kraft paper that I have so I dug it out for this card and stamped this Unity girl stamp in Versamark ink, then imbossed it in super fine bright white WOW embossing powder. Can I just say I went "WOW" when I did it? I had not tried the WOW brand before and I really like it. It's so much better than the other brands I have gotten at Hobby Lobby.

Cards in Envy - Penny for your THOUGHTS

Cards in Envy's second challenge for August is "Penny for your THOUGHTS (use a thought bubble on your card). You can see the challenge here. All cards must fit into a standard size envelope for easy mailing. 

I have to admit I had to go digging through my stamps for this challenge. Wasn't sure I had any thought bubbles but I did find I had 2 and I thought this one for this dog was perfect for this card.

I hope you'll come play along at Cards in Envy.

Cards in Envy: Bug Me!

Cards in Envy's first challenge for August is "Bug Me" (insects or bugs). You can see the challenge here. All cards must fit into a standard size envelope for easy mailing. 

For this card, I dug out this caterpillar stamp by AMuse Art Stamps (remember when AMuse were wooden stamps?) I stamped the caterpillar onto the card stock. Then I stamped it a 2nd time onto wax paper and made a mirror image. I rubbed that image onto the paper next to the first caterpillar, creating 2 caterpillars. I stamped the Hero Arts sentiment underneath, drew a tiny heart and colored in everything using my Copic markers. I cut it out using a Gina Marie Slash Stitch Rectangle die.

I hope you'll come play along at Cards in Envy.
