Hello there! I was at a cardmaking convention in February and saw this humorous dog and die set (Photo Play – Fetch) and knew I could make some really fun cards. Don\’t you love how the dog almost makes a perfect square?
I started by stamping Fetch and the small bird (SSS Stacking Animals), coloring with Copics and die-cutting. I knew I wanted to frame the little vignette so I die-cut a large frame. I had previously made the background (Tim Holtz Bricked Layering Stencil) in a bright vivid blue. Next I stamped the Hello sentiment (Altenew Pinstripes Background Stamp Set) on the frame. I wanted to emphasize the frame so I used foam tape to adhere the frame and animal die-cuts to the bricked background. I think this is a cheery little card that will be fun to send to a friend.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Thanks for stopping by!
Who doesn\’t want to receive an encouraging card? My daughter opened her own marketing firm a year ago and I wanted to send her a card for her first anniversary. Giraffes are her favorite animal so I went with Simon Says Stamp\’s Stacking Animals. I am entering this card in the Time Out Challenge #108 WILD
I think pattern stamping is fun and festive so I went with that technique. I colored the animals with Copic markers and then added Nuvo Crystal Glaze to the hearts and beaks to make them pop.
Thanks for stopping by.
