For those of you who are new to my blog Welcome
and for those of you returning, Welcome Back!
Today I had a chance to play with some of my favorite Paper Sweeties stamps and dies so I thought I'd start off by making my own background for this adorable puppy card.
I started off with some Kraft colored card stock and I stamped the paw print and bone from the Sweeties Pets stamp set. I stamped the paw print in brown ink and the bone in kraft ink and I colored them in with my Polychromos colored pencils. I love how smooth that color goes on. I also stamped the heart from the Planner Series: Coffee stamp set in brown ink and colored it in with the colored pencils as well. For some added interest in the background I spotted it with brown and white dots with the point from a paintbrush.
I love the random look it gives to backgrounds.
The sweet puppy is from the Sweeties Pets stamp set and I stamped him in brown ink and colored him in with my copic markers. I used a die from the Sweet Cuts Oval Scallop Frames to cut him out and decided to make a little shaker window to go on top of him.
I die cut a scalloped frame several times and adhered some acetate to the frames and
added some seed beads in clear and red for some fun!
For the sentiment I decided to use the sweet sentiment from the Sent From My Heart stamp set and frame it with the Sweet Cuts Rectangle Scallop Frames.
I cut out the frame several times and layered it on top
of the sentiment to give it some dimension.
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed my sweet puppy card and I hope you'll give your stamp sets a second look and make your own background
with some of the smaller stamps. It's a lot of fun!
I hope you'll stop by again for more inspiration, leave me a note to let me know you were here and leave your blog in the comments so I can come see your work!
Enjoy your day, I already am!
