I hope you are having a great weekend so far! I have been having fun creating cards for the May 2016 MISSION- Cards for A Cause (Rose’s Fund for Animals- see details here) and decided to create a card using the Splitcoaststampers’ SC592 Sketch Challenge and the Free For All F4A323 “Dogs Are Kids Too” Challenge.
The Puppy Love Clear Stamp Set from Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps (SNSS) is perfect for all sorts of cards for your dog loving friends and I decided to pair the Puppy Love Clear Stamp Set with Grunge Elements Clear Stamp Set to design this card.
If you have not had a chance to check out the above challenge sites, I hope you will find time to do so- wonderful samples from all!
Ink the dog image from Puppy Love with Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink and stamp onto Very Vanilla cardstock.
Use the Big Shot™ with the Circle Framelits™ to cut out the image and cut another circle from Basic Black cardstock for the frame.
Using Ranger® Tim Holtz® Old Paper Distress Ink, stamp the paw prints from the Puppy Love set around the dog image along with the lined image and splatter stamp from Grunge Elements Clear Stamp Set (SNSS).
Use a Faber-Castell® Pitt Pen Black XS Marker to add dots to the foreground as well as additional shadows.
Mount the die cut dog image onto the Basic Black cie cut circle frame and set aside.
Ink the sentiment from Puppy Love with Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink and stamp onto Very Vanilla cardstock, add a few paw prints with Ranger® Tim Holtz® Old Paper Distress Ink, trim and add the banner points with the Hexagon Punch.
Mount onto Basic Black cardstock (again adding banner points with the Hexagon Punch).
Emboss a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions™ Folder, trim and mount onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock, trim and mount onto the Real Red card base.
Emboss a piece of Real Red Designer Series Paper with the Square Lattice Textured Impressions™ Folder, trim on an angle, mount onto Basic Black cardstock and add to the front of the card.
Add the Gold Trim to the card front, mount the dog image and sentiment with dimensional foam along with the Pearls to finish off the card.
