Make it Monday #168 - Take #2 - From the Dogs!

Good morning friends.  So sometimes when I find a technique I really like, I become a bit obsessed and have to make more than one card!  And I really like the baby wipe technique that Ashley showed for this weeks Make it Monday challenge over at Papertrey ink!  And with Father's Day coming and all our girls old enough to buy their own cards for their dad, I decided to help the dogs out by making a card for them to give their daddy! :0)  I used PTI's "Polka Dot Parade #3" stamp set and Night of Navy, Bashful Blue, & Soft Sky re-inkers to come up with this card:

After making my ink pad, I stamped the recliner and the "RELAX" how both of those came out!  They really do look like tie-dye! :0)  The dogs are from an older SU! set called "Loads of Love" and fit perfectly on the recliner...the same way Brinkley and Daisy take over before my hubby can sit down! :0) 

Here's a closer up view:

I think my hubby will get a kick out of this card (and of course the dark chocolate that he loves that will accompany the card too!!)! 

Definitely a technique to try out if you haven't already!  Check out the "how to's" and all the great entries over on Nichole's Blog ...well worth your time! :0)

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend! 


  1. Could not be cuter Marcia! Love the way both the recliner and 'relax' turned out, attention grabbers in masculine blues.

  2. So thoughtful of your doggies to wish "Dad" at Happy Father's Day, Marcia! I'm sure your DH will absolutely love it (and the dark chocolate too) ;-)

  3. This card with the dogs I it is adorable! The MIM baby wipe stamp pad makes a great recliner ink color. I'm sure hubby will love both the card and the chocolate.

  4. EEP! So stinkin' cute, Marcia! He will adore this! I have not had a chance to do the baby wipe technique (altho it is ringing some ancient bell, if that's possible?) and this makes we want to go watch the video NOW! I love the awesome blue microfiber fabric effect you got on that recliner!! Hugs, Darnell

  5. Love this Father's Day card Marcia ! I am right there with you,some of theses MIM are so fun do do ,why not make a few! I will be ordering a few re inkers so I can have more than pink and green. Love the way your card had a denim look.

  6. So stinkin' cute! Chris will love this card...and the chocolate too! This technique worked great for this card!

  7. I love this technique too! Love this recliner! It makes the perfect Father's Day card!
