Puppy Love

Hi!  This card is a departure from what I would consider my normal style – but I like the opportunity to branch out!  Lots of layers, bright colors, and added dimension!  To build up to the focal point of this card I took an A2 panel and stamped it in ‘Blueberry’ ink by My Favorite Things with their ‘Grid’ background stamp.  The green and salmon paper are from the ‘Lakeside’ paper collection by Pebbles.  The salmon paper was die cut with a Reverse Confetti tag die that has a scalloped bottom.  By running the salmon paper through the machine once, flipping the die, and running the card stock through again, I got scalloped edges on the top and bottom.  The smallest panel, in white, was cut down and then run through my Bigkick with a Lil’ Inker Design cover up die called ‘Quilted Stitched Pattern Die’.

For the focal point of this card I used these cute pups by Reverse Confetti.  I stamped them in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Neenah card stock and colored them with copic markers. For the boy pup I used E31, E33, E35, E25, E55.  For the girl pup I used E50, E41, E31, E33.  For the bowl and bones I used BG10, BG23 and W1, W3.

Using Mama Elephant’s ‘Polaroid Fun’ dies I cut out two speech bubbles and stamped a heart on them.  I colored the hearts in gold using gel pen and the background with B10.  I covered the hearts, dog bowl, and the girl pup’s bow in glossy accents.  Once everything was dry it was just a matter of adhering everything!  To add dimension, the bowl was popped up with some foam tape.  I wanted a little bit of interest to the speech bubbles too but the foam tape was too much height.  Using some scrap paper I cut small pieces and layered them behind the speech bubbles for just a little bit of lift.

That’s it!  I hope you enjoyed my card!
