Best Day Ever! You Got Rescued!

Hello my crafty peeps!  I hope you are all having a great week so far!  Maria here on the blog today, sharing with you a simple card, showcasing the Nate & Friday stamp set, with the Best Day Ever Fri-dies.

I started out by inking up my image using a Sunburst stencil from my stash with some Squeezed Lemonade and Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide inks (this piece will be my foreground).  I also dry-embossed this piece with a heart-shaped die and adhered this onto my card base.

I stamped my image on some Neenah solar white card stock using a hybrid intense black ink and just colored him a little with my Tombow markers.  I blended the colors with my watercolor brush to give him a little dimension.  I fuzzy-cut the image with my precision cut scissors and adhered this piece to my card.

I die-cut the Best Day Ever Fri-dies on some white card stock and also adhered these pieces on my card with some Nuvo liquid adhesive.   To finish my design, I added the enamel heart and stamped my sentiment with Versa-fine Onyx Black ink.  I also highlighted his nose with some black glazed pen and let it dry, then topped it with some white gel pen.


Rescuing/adopting a dog is one of the greatest decisions one could ever make and needs to be celebrated!  The sentiment that I chose for this card is just perfect!  Here’s a little close-up:


Adding the pink enamel heart just made it pop!  This card is super simple but I love the way it turned out.  Here’s one last look:

Clean & Simple Cards with SomeBunny – CAS-ual Fridays Stamps

Hello everyone!  Maria here with you today and I am super excited to share my very first post as a member of the CAS-ual Fridays Ink Squad.  It is definitely a dream come true for me!  I have always admired the talented girls on the Ink Squad and when I received the good news that I made it on the team, I was happy and terrified at the same time!  I hope I will be able to inspire you in this amazing journey and get creative with me.

For today’s project, I am showcasing the SomeBunny stamp set with the Bunny Fri-Dies, and the Best Day Fri-Dies.

I started out by die-cutting the two bunnies on some Neenah Solar White Card Stock.  I placed the die-cuts back on the negative piece and lined-up my images, and held it in place with low-tack tape.   I used my stamping tool to stamp the images using Memento Tuxedo black ink.  I colored the images in with my Copic markers.

For my first project, I wanted to make a birthday card using the adorable Bunny holding a balloon.  I cut another piece of some white card stock and stamped the little stars using some light gray ink.  I wanted the stars on my background to look like watermark so that these images wouldn’t overwhelm the whole card design.  I also die-cut the “Best Day Ever” using the dies and adhered these pieces onto my card panel with my Nuvo Liquid adhesive.

To finish my design, I adhered my little bunny with some foam tape, and added Glossy Accents to the balloon.  Here is my first card:


I love the simplicity of this birthday card.  Here’s another look:

I really love the white-on-white background and the glossy accents on the balloon just gave it a little something extra!

For my second card, I did the same technique by stamping the little stars on my card panel with the same light gray ink.  I die-cut another piece of some white card stock to create the frame for my cute little bunny.  I stamped the sentiment onto the frame, and adhered this piece on my background panel with some foam adhesive.

To finish my design, I stamped 3 little stars next to the bunny with some light blue ink and added Stardust Stickles to the moon.  Here is my second card:

I am in-love with this stamp set.

The stardust stickles added a little touch of whimsy to the design.

I hope I have given you some inspiration today to create some clean and simple cards.  Please don’t forget to use my coupon code below for 15% off your order at the shop.  Isn’t this the best day ever?
