Have a Tail Waggin' Day!

Hi there,

Thanks for stopping by today! I'd like to share with you my third April reveal set card, where I chose to use the cute Just me and my Dog Set 892 along with the older Puppy Girl Set 793.

Using the Stamp Platform so I would get good coverage of ink and get the images lined up nicely, I stamped with the Nuvo Hybrid Ink Acorn Brown.

The images were then colored using the new Nuvo Creative Pens, which are Alcohol Markers. I wanted to keep the color palette browns and pinks with just the splash of blue, so the packs of the pens I had on hand covered this just adding in a couple of blue Copic markers.

After the images were colored in, I set to work on the background. I cut a piece of the Craft Perfect Blush Heartbeat specialty paper using the Tonic Guillotine (I found that other cutters just don't cut the fabric paper out crisply). Before layering the piece to the brown card base, I cut out some little hearts using the Tonic Traditional Hearts Layering Basics Die set using the Tonic Tangerine to use as embellishments later.

A white heart was also cut out using the heart die set and then the sentiment was stamped in Nuvo Clear Mark ink and was heat embossed with Teddy Brown, a lovely rich detailed brown embossing powder.

After the sentiment was stamped, it was edged with Pink Sherbet, one of the little inks from the Diamond Hybrid Ink Rose Garden Collection.

I also swiped some of the same ink on to the colored scene and edged it before layering to the Blush Heartbeat paper and then to the brown card base. The little die cut hearts were popped up with Mounting Tape and the sentiment was attached with an Action Wobble, which makes the sentiment "wag". This finished off my card for today.

Hope you've enjoyed seeing how my card was created? Please let me know in the comments below and also over on the SNS Blog in order to be eligible to win the $20 gift certificate to the Sparkle N Sprinkle Store. The winner will be announced at the end of April. Not many people comment in both places, so you have a good chance of winning if you do! Just saying!
