New Catalog Blog Hop, To A Wild Rose

This is one of my favorite bundles in the New Catalog. I was lucky enough to swap with a few of my Stampin’ Buddies last month. This is one of my swaps. Make sure you click on the links below to see Patty’s, Melanie’s & Kurstan’s cards.

I started off with a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ Seaside Spray (new In Color). I stamped just the outline Rose all over the card front. Wrapped that new gorgeous Scalloped Lace Trim around my card. Then I die cut the label, flowers and leaf with the matching Wild Rose Dies. For the label, I stamped the sentiment (comes with this set) in Memento Black Ink. Then I took the outline & the detailed stamp and added just a bit on either side of the label. This is a 3 step stamp, I just didn’t use the solid image.

I added the outline flowers that were die cut with Purple Posy cardstock and the leaf with Mint Macaron, so they were just peaking over the white label. Added a few Frosted & Clear Epoxy Droplets to finish it off. The label was attached with Dimensionals.

Jocelyn’s 8th Grade Graduation, & Happy Tails Sympathy Card

Before we get to my card, I wanted to share a few family photos of Jocelyn’s 8th grade graduation. We were sitting too far back to actually see her walk up when they said her name. But after dinner we got a couple of photos.

The weather went from 85 degrees while we were waiting for the ceremony to start, to 65 degrees after dinner. The wind was cold. 

My husband said something funny and we were all laughing when my daughter took this photo.

Now on to my card. Its much like the card I did yesterday, but with the Dog Builder Punch. The sentiment is from Happy Tails. I did add the Linen Thread Bow like I wished I did to yesterday’s card.

This card is for the gal who watches my grandkids. Delta was 14 and having a lot of heath problems. I’m sure she is in a better place now. It still doesn’t make the hurt of losing a fur baby and easier though……

Kitty Sympathy Card

Unfortunately I have two friends that have lost pets this past week. This is my “cat” version. I will share my “dog” version later (haven’t finished it yet). They will be the same, except I will use the Dog Builder Punch.

I started out with a piece of Thick Whisper White cardstock, 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″.  Then I took regular Whisper White cardstock, and punched the Cat out several times. I also punched one of the cats using the 2019-2021 In Color dsp. Since Dottie was a girl, she needed a pink card, right? I should add that Dottie lived to be 22 years (I think it was 22, I know it was over 20) old. I’ve never heard of a pet that lived to be that age before.

I placed the pink cat first (with Dimensionals) and stamped the sentiment from Happy Tails in Black Memento Ink. Then I did a “dry” run to see where all the cats should be placed. After that I added my Dimensionals to each one and set them in place. Next you will   trim off the cats that are over the edge. Fill in with the little hearts which are from the Dog Builder Punch. And you know me, no card is complete without a little Wink of Stella. I “winked” the hearts.

I did get this idea from Pinterest. What would I/we do without Pinterest? Darn, I forgot to put a Linen Thread bow on the Gingham kitty…..
