Hey friends! I’m over on the Newton’s Nook blog today with a really fun birthday card that I actually made for my dad this year. I had so much fun building all the layers to this card. I hope you enjoy it too!
I started by stamping and coloring the puppies from Puppy Playtime with my copic markers. Once I colored one, I knew I wanted to do a whole set in the same color combo. I just love it for some reason. Then I used the coordinating dies to cut them all out, including a bunch of the bones too.
Then I die cut the frame and also a panel to go behind it. On that panel I used blending brushes and dye inks over the Confetti stencil. I used liquid glue to adhere the frame and moved on to grounding the puppies. I pulled the windows that die cut with the frame out of the recycle bin (silly me) and used the Sea Borders die to cut them down. Then I blended some green dye ink on those and adhered them down as well.
At this point I was deciding on my sentiment and thought it would be fun to have the big Balloon Shaker in the middle of the party. I die cut all the elements and heat embossed my sentiment from Uplifting Wishes on the acetate and liquid glue to adhere it all together. The shaker bits are Princess Rings embellishment mix from the Twiddler’s Nook store in the Tiana color.
I popped all the puppies up with foam squares and used liquid glue to adhere the balloon and bones down in place. For finishing touches I added glossy accents to the puppy noses and scarves, and black and white glaze pen to their eyes.
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
