Different Card, Different Day 2/6/18 February 06 2018, 0 Comments

If you've been following my blog, you've seen this adorable little mouse before. He's a Stampin' Up! rubber wooden stamp from 1996 that I colored in with watercolors. 

Originally in the stamp it reads "Hooray for you" between the mouse's hands but instead of stamping that part, I blocked it off with tape and arranged five red hearts made from punches. (Looks like he's juggling them).

Flip the card open and the inside reads "Whale you be my Valentine?" with a matching colored smiling whale.  I made this card for my Gram. She's 96 and I hand delivered it to her yesterday with a surprise visit. Needless to say...she loved it. 

The flip card was designed by The Stamps Of Life by Stephanie Barnard. The checkerboard border is also part of the cutting die set to make this card. I inked them in red distress inks. A red sheer ribbon runs up the length of the card and is tied in a knot.

If you want to find out how this card was made, using which supplies or how I possibly could design a card for you, please contact me.  Leave me a comment too and let me know what you think about today's card of my daily "Different Card, Different Day" blog series. 

Thanks for reading my blog. Enjoy your day.

Different Card, Different Day 1/27/18 January 27 2018, 0 Comments

You make life bearable. And...I love you. Wow! This panda bear stamp designed by The Stamps of Life - Stephanie Barnard is showing a lotta love! Look at all those hearts too.

He is a cutie pie with his little pink nose. Because of the great quality of Stephanie's rubber stamps, I get a perfectly stamped image every time. I also recommend StazOn black permanent ink.

Inside the "Happy Valentine's" is placed leaving plenty of room for your own handwritten message. The pink tag with three hearts looks likes it is nailed to the coral pink colored strip (matches the background paper on the front).

Here's the card in front of my window, showing it in the natural sunlight.

Do one thing everyday that makes you happy. Smile. This little mouse laying in an open pea pod is just too cute. His belly is full as he lay there sleeping.

When the card comes out of the envelope, it looks like this. When opened, it easily sits and fits into the half moon shaped slot, exposing it's inner message of "Smile". A white border strip with grey ribbon runs under the popped up message.

Your personal message can be written on the inside OR back side of this card. 

The close up shows you all the painted details of this rubber stamped image.

This card can be duplicated and/or personalized by request.*

*Duplicating this image by request is possible because the materials and supplies used are available to reuse.  The card is cut with a cutting die by The Stamps Of Life by Stephanie Barnard. The verbiage are two rubber cling stamps. The image is a wooden block rubber stamp. The paper used is white and grey cardstock. Watercolor paints and Tim Holtz distress inks that edged the front of this card are in my supplies, as well as the grey ribbon. Personalize this card by changing verbiage and coloring...or duplicate it as you see it in this blog. Of course each will be unique in their own way because I hand paint each mouse and peapod image.
