Feeling Under the Weather?

I have been wanting to use some of My Favorite Things stamps sets and I pulled this one out since I didn't have any get well cards. I am really liking the layering of the stamped images. There isn't much room for embellishment with this particular stamp set. I do wish the little dog looked like Lucy since my little Lucy is such a cutie but I guess I can't have it all!

I stamped on the blue for the background then I stamped on white. On the white I colored the dog and the flesh tone for the lady. I glued the white onto the blue. I then stamped on the yellow mica for the raincoat and boots. I glued the boots on and then pop dotted the raincoat.

I did pop dot the raincoat that I had stamped on the mica cardstock and I think it really made the card look so much better. I colored the ruffle of the coat with the white Signo gel pen as I did with the dots on the rain boots. I then used Stickles on them for a little glitz. I also used Stickles on the dog's little coat.

This is a close up so you can see the Glossy Dimensions that I used for the puddle and also made rain drops with. This shows the shimmer of the mica cardstock on the rain coat also. If ya haven't tried this stuff well...ya just don't know what you are missing!


  1. I am not quite sure what you mean by laying your stamping, but I sure love the way it turned out...

  2. i am lovin' all the dimension on this card! so fun and cute! just perfect!

  3. Okie - is the paper just called mica paper? Or is it a particular brand? It looks beautiful - I've gotten some Shimmerz (a sparkly paint) which is also a very nice product to use - it's shiny without the bulk of Stickles (but I still love my Stickles)! TFS!!

  4. Not sure if it is a particular brand. I know it came from the California Papergoods website. It is a VERY heavy cardstock, it does cut great on the Cricut with max pressure and depth.

  5. This is gorgeous Okie, I am a huge fam of MFT stamps and this is one of my favourite sets
