Card of the day

Today's card is reminscent of Cape Town normally in winter - lots of rain. We sure have been lucky this year though and have had some beautiful days.

The stamp is from My favourite things - I just adore their stamps. Have a look at

I made this card for one of my card classes last month and also sent one to a friend on RSA, Cariena. I don't often use blues but I really like the colours on this one and must really use blue more often.

I stamped the image onto white cardstock and then stamped just the coat area of the stamp again onto patterned cardstock (blue and white dots). I then cut out the coat from the patterned cardstock and glued it onto the image on the white cardstock and there you have the technique - Paper Piecing. I then coloured the boots, trim of coat, dog and puddle with copic markers and highlighted with stickles glitter glue. I went around the edges of the image with a silver pen and then I took white base card, a piece of 14 x 14 scrapbook paper around which I edged with Aqua color box ink pad and then attached it to the cardfront. I then stamped the words using Black Brilliance ink pad, added a strip of Turquoise cardstock and then the image. I then added a couple of Prima Flowers and some rhinestones to finish the card off.
