BE THE PERSON YOUR DOG THINKS YOU ARE!

Hi there,

Today I'd like to share a card with you using the new reveal set 793: Puppy Girl.

Be the Person

To begin with I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black and then colored with Copics, YR00, RV42, RV95, R21, R22, E04, E13, E33, E35. For the background I took a piece of pink cardstock and covered it with a piece of Super Adhesive Sheet. I removed the protective backing and burnished Pink Spirit Sparkle N Soft onto the sticky surface.

Be the Person

I then took Rich Cocoa and inked the raised side of the Darice Paw Print Background embossing folder, The pink, flocked piece was inserted so that the ink would transfer on to the fuzzy surface.

Be the Person

This is the result - a sparkly, fuzzy background.

I didn't want to cover up the majority of my background so I decided to make a frame around the image instead. I cut the background in half, then used the Spellbinders Mega Ovals Large to make an "opening" for my image. Place the die on the cutting plate, then position the background halves, so that the top and bottom corners are where the die will start cutting. I taped them to the plate, so they wouldn't move, then I ran it through the Big Shot.

The pieces were then taped down on top of the image.

I decided to curve the sentiment along the edge of the image. Place it on the acrylic block and bend it slightly before you ink up. I used Memento Rich Cocoa to stamp with.

Next step was to "give a dog a bone!" In fact he got three! I had little white bone brads, so I dipped them on my Versamark pad and then with tweezers dipped them into Vintage embossing powder and heat set them. They were then added to the image.

I attached the card front to a piece of 6" x 6" cardstock edged with 1/4" Tear-ific TapeSparkling Sands was then applied to the remaining sticky edge to finish off my card today. Not sure what that little speck is on the leash. Didn't notice it until now, but it's not on the card!

I'd like to join in the following challenges:

Hope you've enjoyed my share today,

Hugs,

Shona

  12. Gorgeous dogpaws on the pink fuzzy. Clever you to create the window as you've designed it (TFS the picture how-to-s, as always). This would be hard to explain, but it was a brilliant idea, to show off both the image and your creative work on the pawprint background. Love the dog bones! TFS & Hugs

    I'm a fellow stamper who makes blank general and thank you pet themed handmade cards and donates them to animal shelters and rescue groups. I've just started a new blog, Sending Paw Prints, for this purpose. I love your cards and am hoping if you have a stash of pet themed cards or are interested in making some you'll think of donating them to Sending Paw Prints.
