Doggone Friendly

Do you love dogs? I know I do. I can’t remember a time that a dog wasn’t apart of our family someone we loved. From my first little pup at age 4 to our two current little babies, dogs hold a special place in my heart. So when I saw the Doggone Friendly Stamp (162729) I knew it would be part of my shopping list.

Today I’m going to share some fun cards from my swap that use this stamp in different ways. I like the fact that this stamp has it all and we can highlight one or all of our sweet faces! This first card does just that.

The card front was stamped in Pebbled Path and then circle from the Stylish Shapes Dies (159183) was used to cut out the image desired. The pup has been colored and highlighted and then layered onto a larger circle of Misty Moonlight. This layered shape covers the hole that was created. And how about this next card that uses a quick pop of color on their bandanas with our Stampin’ Blends to draw your eye?

The sentiment has been stamped in the fun Tahitian Tide and punched out and layered with the Double Oval Punch (154242) and a bit of shine has been added with the Tahitian Tide 1/8″ Metallic Woven Ribbon (159197).

And this last card is a fun fold

It uses not only the stamp set but our More Dazzle Specialty Paper (161749), Natural 1/4″ Wavy Trim (161517), and Earthen Elegance Designer Series Paper (161503) to create tons of texture. Open it and you’ve got two additional panels with those adorable little faces.

This stamped image was stamped Pecan Pie once and then cut into three sections at 1 1/2″, 2 1/8″ to decorate the panels. So simple but it packs a wow in shades of brown.

Three cards, three totally different looks! It’s one of my favorite things about paper crafting, while we start with the same supplies we can create a project that is our.

On a personal note I thought I’d share a quick pic of my pups. Kona and Hana who are now 21 weeks old and just got their first grooming.

We named them after two towns we were able to visit on vacation recently. They are such sweet little faces, don’t you think? Why not leave me a comment and tell me what kind of pup you have?

Sparkling Snowflakes

Do you love the first snowfall of the year and the sparkle it brings to the countryside as the sun shines on it? I know growing up in Wisconsin this is one of my strongest memories, the brilliance of the snow as the sun hit it. I actually wore my sunglasses more in the winter than the summer! I guess that is one of the things that always draw me to a snowflake stamp set and the Sparkling Snowflakes stamp set (162158) not only has some lovely 2 step snowflakes but also a coordinating punch too!

Today’s first card uses that lovely Sparkling Snowflakes Tag Topper Punch (162164).

This card uses colors from winter. The Fresh Freesia, Boho Blue, and Pool Party to create a soft winter time feel. It also uses the simple stamp off method to create 2 tones of the same color so that the two step image is darker than the solid image. You can see the small snow flake behind the sentiment that uses this same technique. Ink up the stamp, stamp off on a scratch paper, and then stamp on your project. Just a little tip – You’ll want to do this fully each time since when you stamp off the edge of the card stock you’ll get a line in your image. The Boho Blue 3/8″ Textured Ribbon (161631), Tinsel Gems Three Pack (161624), and Snowflake Sky 3D Embossing Folder (162026) give the card a lot of texture.

This next card is monochromatic and done in Lost Lagoon. One of my favorite new colors added this year.

The sentiment has been punched out using the Double Oval Punch (154242) and has been popped up giving it some depth. The lovely Silver & White 1/2″ Sheer Ribbon (162149) and Faceted Gems Trio Pack (162148) add a bit of shimmer and shine along with texture to the project.

These products are part of the carry over list, but the Sparkling Snowflakes Bundle (162165) discount will be going away since it is only while supplies last or January 3rd when the catalog ends.

There is Snowbody Better & More

There is was a nip in the air this morning which means we are getting closer to our first frost in North Georgia, in comes the plants. And that bit of cooler air makes me think the holidays aren’t far behind, which makes me think snow. I don’t know about you but the first fall of snow makes us all want to go out an build a snowman. How about you? So today I thought I’d share some fun cards made with the Snowbody Better stamp set (156446).

I love it’s quirky fond and fun sayings too. Here are a couple of cards made with this fun stamp set. This first card uses the fun Whimsy & Wonder Specialty Designer Series Paper (156329) as a kick off to it’s non traditional color pallet.

Stampin’ Blends were used to color the image and texture was added to the background with the Wintery 3D Embossing Folder (155433) the sentiment adds a bit more texture with the Double Oval Punch (154242) which is a perfect size for many of these sentiments. This next card has a soft color pallet also.

The Scalloped Contour Dies (155560) adds a bit of interest and the Basic Rhinestone Jewels (144220) a bit of shimmer and shine.

Want a more traditional look for your snowy friends? Why not check out the Snow Wonder stamp set (153344) and it’s coordinating Snow Time Dies set (153564)?

Hydrangea Haven

Do you have fond memories of Hydrangeas? My Mother-in law loved this bushes and always had one in her yard. As we pulled into her yard the big full of blooms they were always so cheerful, like big snowballs. If you love Hydrangeas like she did you’ll be sure to enjoy working with the Hydrangea Haven Bundle (156251) found on page 18-20 of the Mini Catalog. Since this bundle is part of a suite of products you’ll have tons of coordinating products to choose from.

I really like the variety of all occasions sentiments in this set and the lovely font it uses too. What do you think? Want to see some cards now? This first card teams the bundle up with the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder (152725) for a bit of texture and the Double Oval Punch (154242).

And this next one uses the Curvy Dies (154319) to create a special place for the sentiment that has been heat embossed on the Gorgeous Grape layer.

Isn’t it wonderful the way that you can bend our Photopolymer stamps to give them a bit of curve like on this card? And if you are a fan of these cards you’ll want to be sure to check out the beautiful Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper (154570) with its soft colors and images, it was one of my favorite things when I first saw the catalog. But it is really hard to pick just one accessory that I like best from this suite of products. Can you?
