In Memory of Max


Sympathy cards are hard to make. You know you’re making it for someone who is in pain and sadness. But, what’s nice about making them, is you can make them very personalized.

I made this card for a friend when her dog passed away. Max was a schnauzer. My dog, Maggie, is half schnauzer. Pampered Pets is perfect for those dogs.

I die cut one of the Scallop Counters dies and then using a Blending Brush, added the colors to make it look like a sunset sky.

This is an old technique but I still love it! Reverse imaging/stamping is a great and easy way to make the stamps face the opposite direction! The links to the products I used are listed below and here’s the video I made!

Hi from a Dog!


I made this card for a friend of mine who moved a few months ago. We all miss her- especially my dog, Maggie! The Playful stamp set and dies have a dog that looks a lot like her!

The foam adhesive sheets are amazing. You put them on your paper, die cut your images and viola! The whole image sticks out perfectly!
