Our Whole Life

Hi Bloggers.

Here's a demo card from last Tuesday's shows -

For the background, I randomly inked through the Tiles Mask using Black Soot Distress Ink onto a piece of Milk Card till the while area was pretty much covered. Then, will my stamp in my hand, I randomly stamped the Pawprint Lattice A6 Background using Black Soot.

I stamped Alfie using Black Soot. I cut him out using Spellbinders Classic Squares Large. I stamped the area around Alfie's neckerchief onto Black Card using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Ivory Embossing Powder. I cut the neckerchief out and added it to the original image with Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Pawprints on Your Heart Clear Stamp Set onto Milk Card using Black Soot. I cut it out using Spellbinders Petite Scalloped Ovals Large.

I cut a Couture Creations Moulin Rouge out of Black Card.

I cut a border out of Black Card using Sue's Mosaic 3d Bow Die Set. I cut the border so that the gap was underneath the image die cut.

I made a bow out of Black Card using other dies from the Mosaic 3d Bow Die Set.

I assembled the card as shown adding a Cream 8mm Pearl in each corner and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Ivory PVA around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.

  10. Hi Julia. Really like this dog image especially with the paper pieced neckerchief. Really frosty November morning here in Derbyshire, but the sun is shining and the rolling hills look beautiful. Hoping to crack on with some more Christmas cards today. SueL x

    Lovely card, these stamps are so cute.

  14. I really like the random background - the paw prints go well with the stripy squares - not an obvious choice to put together, so thanks for the suggestion.

  15. Alfie is such a cutie, lovely card Julia.
