Welcome! I picked this sweet puppy up from Neat & Tangled a while ago and finally had a chance to ink him up. He’s just adorable and so fun to color! I paired him with some fun Newton’s Nook products to create a birthday card for a change of theme these days.
I started by stamping and coloring the images from Puppy’s Favorite Things and then used the coordinating dies to cut them out.
Then I grabbed my Newton’s Nook balloons stencil and my Trinity Stamps blending buddy brushes to ink up the balloons different colors. Then I used the Framework dies from Newton’s Nook to cut the panel out along with an orange woodgrain floor. I trimmed down a teal piece of cardstock to 4 1/8×5 3/8 and popped the stenciled panel on it with foam tape. This is all glued to a white card base.
I had used the special die to cut the puppy’s hands out so he could hold the cupcake so I glued that in place. Then I added foam squares to the back of all my images and put them in place. Last, I die cut a banner from the Newton’s Nook Frames and Flags set and stamped my sentiment. This banner is also popped up with foam squares.
For finishing touches I added white gel pen accents throughout the images, black glaze pen to the puppy’s eyes and nose and glossy accents on a few images. I also added sprinkled sugar Stickles to the cupcake frosting and yellow Stickles to the top of the birthday hat.
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
