You are so special!

I've been looking at different posts as I cleaned out some OLD emails and got a bit inspired!!  These cards are rather fast and easy but I do like the looks of them...


I used a yellow card base and stamped the dots from the TAC set Background Soup with Cognac PH ink.  The label and text are from another TAC set called Label Lingo and I cut it out by hand.  The flower started out as white but I swiped the Cognac ink on it and a bit of white scrappers floss that's threaded through the brown button.  Pop the label and flower with foam mounting tape and voila!!


What do you think of this cool dog!!  It and the text are from a TAC set called Brandy & Emma.  I got this set from a friend after TAC closed.  Our daughter had a wonderful dog that kinda looked like Brandy but it was a yellow Lab.  The white card base is mounted on a 1/4 sheet of black cardstock. The dots were made with my Journaling pen and a centering ruler!


I colored Brandy with my PrismaColor pencils.  You can see some pencil lines as I couldn't find my OMS (odorless mineral spirits).  I have a bottle somewhere...  Inside the card I stamped 5 pawprints along the left edge.  There are still a few TAC stamps I'd like to get my hands on, oh well.

Both cards are great. Cognac PH is just about my fav color of ink and it looks fab on that yellow cs. LOVE the bright and cheery 'happy' card you created. And that adorable dog . . . it brings a smile to my face just looking at her! Thanks for the inspiration. I miss not being able to get TAC stamps that were on my wishlist.
