Hello everyone! I’m over on the Pink & Main blog today with an adorable card featuring the stamp and die of the month for December. It is the CUTEST puppy set! I absolutely love all of the images in the set and the sentiments are too cute too!!!
I started my card with a layout in mind so I stamped the images from the set and colored them with my copic markers. Then I used the coordinating dies to cut them out. Then I pulled out the awesome rainbow die from the Rainbow Friend die set and cut it from white cardstock. I pulled all the pieces apart and used my copics to color those as well. I seriously love adding color to dies like this with markers instead of colored cardstock. Then I cut a white circle just a smidge smaller than the scalloped outline and adhered everything to that. This makes it tons easier to add to my card, especially since it’s popped up with foam tape.
I chose a gray patterned paper from the Hooray paper pad and cut it out with the largest Layered Rectangle A2 die. I adhered it to a white card base with EZ Squeeze liquid glue and popped my rainbow panel up. Then I added foam squares to my images and popped them up as well.
I chose a sentiment from the set, stamped it and cut it out with a Large Sentiment Banner die and popped it up as well. The parts of the puppy and sentiment that hang over the rainbow circle have double layer foam squares so it lays flat. I love the depth the extra layer gives everything.
For finishing touches I added black glaze pen to the puppy’s eyes and glossy accents to the nose, bow and shine mark on the balloon. Then I finished the design off with a scattering of gray glitter enamel dots from the Rainbow pack.
It’s almost weird to switch gears from holiday cards to this but also a little refreshing. If you’re interested in subscribing to the stamp and die of the month, click HERE. It’s a steal of a deal and guarantees you super fun happy mail each month to create with!
