Lucy, Freddie & FREE PDF Friday

I wanted to share a recent photo I covet of the two Fish family dogs, Freddie (left) and Lucy (right).  Lucy lives with my daughter, Caroline, but visits frequently for “doggie sleepovers.”  They are best buddies and seem to be adapting quite well to their new digs.  What do you think?  More about these two rescues on this previous post.

Rainbow Typewriter Birthday Card

Create a simple birthday card with Stampin Up PS Youre the Best - Mary Fish StampinUp

Today’s birthday card is for my friend who is an artist and painter.  I thought the swooshes of bold color were personal and pretty.  I used the Stampin’ Up!  PS You’re the Best stamp set (below).  It’s loaded with multi-occasion sentiments and vintage charm.

STAMPIN’ PRETTY STEP-BY-STEP TUTORIAL:

Create a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card base with Stampin’ Up! Thick Whisper White card stock and the Stampin’ Trimmer.

Cut a piece of Vellum card stock to 3 7/8 x 5 1/8. Wrap a piece of Basic Black Solid Baker’s Twine around the center, securing it with a bow. Adhere to the card base with a small strip of Snail Adhesive (in the center, hidden behind the elements).

Cut a piece of Melon Mambo card stock to 2 x 5 1/2.  Flag the end using the Banner Triple Punch. Adhere to the Vellum with Snail Adhesive. 

Using the Stamparatus (for crisp ink coverage and perfect placement), stamp the typewriter image (P.S. You’re the Best Stamp Set) in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto a piece of Whisper White card stock sized to 2 3/4 x 3.  

Add the colored accents using the stamp (also from P.S. You’re The Best) and the following Stampin’ Pads: Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green & Bermuda Bay.  TIP: I used the Stamparatus and stamped off the colors first onto scratch paper to soften the intensity.  See the photo below showing the ink at “full strength.”  I felt it was too strong.

Adhere the finished image to Basic Black card stock cut to 3 x 3 1/4. 

Add three multi-sized Black Faceted Dots as shown.
