Hope everyone's weekend is going fabulously!
Stopping in to share another super sweet card with you. I've been promising to share some projects featuring some of the other birthday gifts my amazing husband bought me. Well, today I am finally doing that!
See, I have this thing where I really really love animals. Lately they seem to be about the only thing I want to put on my cards...next to flowers. So for my birthday, Matthew decided to buy me a super cute set from Simon Says Stamp that I haven't been able to put down.
You Are Pawesome set! He's so cute and so easy to put on any card I'm making! I decided to try flipping him for this card, which ended up working out pretty well. To do that, I inked up the stamp and then stamped it on the backside of a larger stamp so the ink transferred. Then all I needed to do was line up the outline with the coordinating die cut shape and it was done! I ended up tracing around the whole image to crisp up the lines, but it worked so well I know I will be doing that more often!
I have loved making little scenes for my cards lately too. So I pulled out a cute little star stencil I made with my Silhouette and used some embossing paste to give it dimension. There is a bit of sparkle gold pigment powder mixed into the embossing paste and in person you can really see the soft subtle shimmer it gives to the stars.
Then I used my Mama Elephant Landscape Trio dies to make the bushy background and hills for my pups to sit on.
The last part I added was the sentiment from the Hero Arts Shoot for the Moon set. I divided it up since the whole thing wouldn't fit in the banner die cut I wanted to use. So I stamped the I Love You separately and cut it out with the Landscape Trio as well. Both sentiments are embossed in gold and the second half of the sentiment is cut out with a Spellbinders banner die.
Totally adorable, I just love this fun stamp set and how sweet this pup is!
