Congrats to Jess, the newest Featured Stamper (FS617) on Splitcoast! She has a fun gallery & I chose THIS to case. I kept the brown dog & get well theme, but used different images & dies & changed up the layout.

I really love this cute dog w/ the big eyes & I thought he’d be perfect w/ this fun greeting. It’s going to my Dad who had dental surgery. He won’t be biting anyone, lol, & he’ll get a kick out of the bite reference. After stamping & coloring Fido, I die cut him w/ the matching die. The background is one big page covering die. I colored the circles blue & put them back then added a narrow brown layer. 

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.

I made this for 2 Splitcoast Challenges today…the Technique (TLC675) acetate inking, and the Clean & Simple (CAS466) to have/use something clear. 

For the TLC, I used DOX (Distress oxide ink) on a piece of acetate to make the piece I used behind the window.  For the CAS (something clear) I used a portion of a window die (clear window) & put my Santa puppy on the ledge looking out. The white front was stamped w/ the snowflakes & embossed w/ the bricked folder & I added the greeting (half die cut, half stamped) & a few punched snowflakes. 

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.

Today’s Ways to Use It Challenge (WT628) is a tribute to National Puppy Day. While I don’t have a dog in real life, I do have a cute one on my card & he’s learned to put mail in the mailbox. What a champ!  And on the subject of dogs…the last dog I had was a blonde cocker spaniel named Tigger. We also had a conure (parrot) we named Odie. We called him Odie (after the cartoon dog on Garfield) because he thought he was a dog. He learned to bark from Tigger, but his bark sounded kind of far away. We realized he was imitating the dog when he was barking from the back yard. The parrot we have now is named Linus (after the character on Charlie Brown). He also barks because he learned it from Odie. Guess I also have a thing for cartoon characters, lol.   Here’s a pic of Odie on his favorite cup.

In memory of Odie 1985-2012


To make my mail dog card, I put together 3 different images..the dog w/ the fence is one. Originally he had a big stick in his mouth but I drew a letter to replace the stick. The lovebirds on the branch is another & the third is the mailbox, which originally had a big smiling daisy w/ a letter in its leaf. So there was some masking going on here. After I colored everything, I used a self made cloud stencil & sponged in the sky, & stamped a lines bg, tone on tone on the blue frame.

Here are the Copics I used.
