BSS MONDAY IDEA - FOR THE DOGS

Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea.

Today's card features a cute card fold and a great set of stamps from Penny Black.

You can click on the pictures to see a larger version.




The design for this card can be found HERE

http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/sidespringcard/

It's called a Side Spring Card.
I did change the original piece of card stock you start with to
51/2 inches by 10 inches to give you more decorating space on the
card, and it will still fit into a 5x7 inch envelope.

I wanted to use this cute set of pups for this card and 
thought the design fit with the dog theme.
(NOTE:  There are three dog stamps in the set, I only used two)

Stamps - Dogs and front sentiment - Penny Black (40391)
 Doggone Sweet Cling Set
Inside Sentiments -Inky Antics Delightful Dogs (10977MC)
Clear Set
Paper - White and Turquoise Card Stock, designer paper is
from the Graphic 45 Raining Cats and Dogs series.
Oval Die is from the Spellbinder's Nestabilities Majestic Elements
Radiant Rectangles (S65-161)
Turquoise stitched ribbon piece
Popped up the ovals with the dogs with pop dots
Colored with Copics

I'm entering my card into the
Penny Black Saturday Challenge for April-Easter or Chocolate Brown

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day.  Until later.............

Lilacs and Butterflies

Hi friends.  I'm on a flower kick.  Digging out some of my flower stamps from a long time ago.  Beautiful stamps that have long been neglected.

This wonderful Lilac stamp is so pretty and the shading on the stamp makes coloring it up a dream.
The Butterfly and the Lilac are all one stamp.
