Happy Tails ~ Dog Sympathy Cards

I will openly say that these are the cards I don't like to make...sympathy cards.
I recently had two friends lose a furry companion and thought it only appropriate to send them a card with some kind words as I know these furry companions mean so much to us!

I think if this happened to me, a handmade card with some nice heartfelt words is just the thing that would warm my heart.

I used the gorgeous Happy Tails bundle with a mixture of product that is carrying over and also some that is sadly leaving us...


I really wanted to use some of the Wooden Textures DSP as this is sadly retiring and you only have just about a week left to get some before it's gone for good! I absolutely love this paper for a great card background. It's very versatile and can pretty much be used with any product.

I also went to town and used some of those super fun True Gentleman buttons as I just love the texture of them and that they also can suit so many different themes and colours.


Here's a close up of one of the cards. I pulled in some of the gorgeous Grey Granite Textured Weave ribbon which is carrying over to the new catalogue...yay!
I also pulled in the Leaf Punch with some Vellum Cardstock for a fun added element.


To make the dog and the kennel the feature, I stamped and mounted them on a stitched square from the Stitched Shape framelit and backed this on a scalloped square from Copper Foil cut from the Layering Squares dies. 


Of course as always I wanted to show you the coordinating inside of the card where I added some more stamps and my favourite sentiment from the set which was so appropriate for the sympathy theme of these cards.

I hope you enjoyed seeing this post of a couple of cards I made recently.
Be sure to check the links below for the products I have used as some of these products are selling out as they are retiring!

Happy crafting. xx

Best Catch ~ Dad's Birthday Card

I have a brand new crafty share today!
Earlier this month it was my Dad's 65th Birthday and my father is an avid fly fisherman who actually has a business tying flies for people.
It was only appropriate to make him a card with this fabulous Best Catch bundle which I love so much and GUESS WHAT? It's carrying over to the new catalogue.

Now was a great time to share this though, because only for another week can you get this as a bundle at 10% off. When it moves over to the new catalogue, it will not be discounted. So now is the time to grab it!


I did use a retiring product here and that is the fabulous Old Olive Linen Thread. I am really sad that this one is going as I love linen thread and love the texture of it, so that is something to grab now too, while stocks last!

I used my gorgeous crackle stamp too and stamped this in Early Espresso ink for a fun textured background.


To add texture I have cut out the 'fronds' I hope that is what they are called, from various textures including Old Olive cardstock, Vellum and Watercolour paper.
The ones that were stamped on watercolour paper, I coloured with some inks and an Aqua Painter to get some fun colours on them.

I have also coloured the fish and the fly with Watercolour Pencils. I don't really know if it's an accurate colouring of a rainbow trout, but it's all about imagination *wink*


It wouldn't be a 'Kayla' card without decorating the inside, so I added the gorgeous fisherman which was stamped and embossed with Copper.

My Dad really loved the card, which I am glad.

You can see all the products I have used linked below and it will take you directly to my store.
If you buy the bundle or spend over $50 I do have a sale this month if you use the host code.
