My stash probably could have used a card that would more suit a 2nd graders birthday party but I opted for the baby theme instead.
My color inspiration was from my cousin Michelle son's nursery. Mikey turned one this past week! (Time flies!)
Like I said, I don't often make boy cards so this one was most definitely a challenge for me. I looked through my stash of Denami stamps and almost used the surfer chickie with "Surfs up Dude". If it weren't for the fact that I have a million things to do before we leave for spring break, I might have made that one too. But onto the details of the doggie card....
I used the following Denami stamps to create my card:
A85 Paw Print
A86 Doggie Bone
PF 17 Cuddly Pals Set (dog)
E114 Small Dot Circle Frame
I53 Medium Dot Circle Frame
B85 Small Solid Circle
My card basically has 2 parts, the card background and the scallop medallion that the puppy is sitting on. For the background, I stamped the bones and embossed them with white embossing powder and stamped the paws using a light blue ink pad to fill in.
For the scalloped medallion, I alternated my colors of card stock and ink and used the circle frames to decorate. I was undecided about what I was going to do with my puppy in the middle...should I color with Copics, water color, flock??? So many tools, so little time...
Then I thought of something that I hadn't done before...I first stamped the Small Solid Circle in the light blue, then used brown ink to center my puppy on top. (I'm sure this is not new to the Denami Design Team but it was to me.) Finally, I used a small circle punch.
To finish off my card, I did some faux pen stitching down the left hand side...There you have it...blurry scanned pic and all...someday, I'll learn how to use this darn scanner better. It does not like it when I use pop dots.
Sorry, I could not get Abby to join me on this one. She has had her fill of "projects" this week: Holy Communion prep scrapbook, book report with shoe box project, regular nightly homework...not to mention that the weather is awesome today and she wanted to shoot some hoops outside. Maybe next time...
