Get Well Cards

Get Well Cards

Hi All!

In honor of the September poll results, I created a few variations of this get well card with the Doggy Kisses set. I also used this stamp set on an interactive card here.

Each one of these cards is a little bit different. The backgrounds were all created with Peerless watercolors, and the dogs were colored with Copic markers. The card I created in the video has a Geranium Pink background and dog colors of C9, C6, C4, and 110 (cone Y17, Y15, and Y11):

It’s also the only one I added Peerless splatters to. Here is a close-up:

I created this next one with a Turquoise Blue background. I colored the dog with E53, E55, and E57 (cone G09, G12, G14):

Finally, this card with a Light Green background. The dog is colored with the same colors I used for the first dog, but I added some dots with 110 in the white areas. Cone is YR00, YR04, and YR09.

Which one do you like the best? Enjoy the video!

    Even though I’ve become a cat person (well, a Siamese cat person) over the years, some dogs are pretty cute too. And I always had a dog but no cats when I was growing up. But dogs seem better to me than cats on cards for men. So any one of these cards would be great for a man. However, my preference is the brown dog with green cone and blue sky. It just seems friendlier to me.

      HAHA Connie, I don’t think there is such a thing as a Siamese cat person.. I think the correct term would be “Siamese CAT”S Person”. . I was owned by a beautiful Blue point Siamese for 16 years, but he was an odd Siamese- he didn’t have the “attitude”, but still showed us who was in charge. When our daughter was a baby, he would sleep under her crib, and the minute she even whimpered he would find us and inform us- quite loudly. It wasn’t that she disturbed his nap,he was always very protective of her from the day we brought her home. She was definitely his “person”.
      I agree that these would be great for a man. In fact that was my first thought. I like the green one because the added spots remind me of the markings on my English Cocker Spaniel( who also grew up with Sir Siamese)

    Love the dogs!! I really like all three of the color schemes. You could use the pink background for ladies, blue for men and the green for teens. Keep the puppies coming! Thanks for all you do!

    My favorite was the pink one, because of the splatters. They add interest. I like this stamp set. Think I will pick it up. I could have used it just last week. Thanks Darlene.

    Loved all three cards. Would you mind sharing the inside sentiment? Not sure I get the joke (old brain here):

      When an animal (like a dog or cat) is injured like the one pictured in the stamp set, the vet will put a cone around their neck so they can’t bite at the bandage. The greeting is intended for humans, who obviously don’t get cones. Kind of a “look on the bright side” type of message. Even though you’re sick/hurt, at least you don’t have the indignity of having to wear a cone! Hope this explains it! 🙂 ~ Andrea

      We’ve unfortunately have had dogs who have had surgery and they have to wear the cone so they don’t like the wound. There’s nothing they hate more than having to wear “the cone of shame”. (You need to watch the movie, UP (lovely cartoon movie) to get the full extent of that comment.
      I’m with you thought, I would like to see inside of cards if there’s something in them. 🙂

        Any way to edit notes? It’s meant to be lick the wound, not “like”. (another old brain here, who forgets to spell check before hitting send) 🙂

    Even though it is a dog, I like your cards, Darlene! Of course, as you might be able to tell from my avatar, I’d prefer cats. 😉 I think my favorite color combo is the blue with the brown dog. Of course, I suppose because I’m an Aquarius, I’m naturally drawn to blue anyway! 🙂 Thanks for the inspiration–but more kitty cards, please! 😺 ~ Andrea

    All of they are adorable, but my favorite would be the last one with white spots on his tummy. Great get well cards. Thanks, Christine

    Great card, Darlene. I don’t have these stamps but do have the Crazy Cats and Dogs by Tim Holtz and I could always make my own cone! 😀. I like all of the coloured backgrounds and my tip would be to use craft foam on WC paper (with double sided tape), it really evens it out and keeps it flat. For your bubbly card, you could try putting a cutting plate down on top and pile a few SU punches on top and leave it over night. That’s what I do and it seems to work for me!😎

    Such a fun card, my fave was the green background with the orange cone. It just seems to pop more to my eye. I always feel so sad for the wee dogs who need to wear the “cone” after surgery or accident. Their little faces tell the indignity of it so well and it’s hard not to chuckle at their frowns and eye movements. I also heard running the dry water coloured paper through the big shot once or twice helps to flatten it out well and easier to adhere.

    I love these cards. I have this stamp set on my table ready to make a get well card for a friend. I love the sentiments that come with this set. I don’t really have a favourite as I like them all. Thanks Darlene.

    There was something about these that made me smile 🙂 and the copic colluding tips were very helpful.
