Life Without Dogs

Happy Wednesday One Crazy Stamper Fans! 

This week I would like to introduce you to Puppy Pals from the So Much Cuteness new release from High Hopes. How adorable are these two!! 

I decided to showcase these two cuties in a paw print base - the "toes" are a lot bigger then I wanted them to be but this is the smallest circle die I have and my circle cutter doesn't cut smaller then an inch ... so mental note - buy a circle cutter that cuts smaller then 1 inch <smile> I hope you can still see my vision.

I also can't see myself with a dog in my life so this stamp and sentiment are perfect for me! 

After colouring my stamp with alcohol markers, I cut it out using a classic circle die. I cut the background cardstock with my circle cutter. The paw "pad" is popped up with foam dots to help it stand out. The "toes" to my paw print were cut out and I added a heart to each one. 
A grey Staedler marker was perfect to add some freckles to the puppy just for fun. 
All of this was added to some plaid and heart paper. Some twine and gumdrops finish off my card. 
The images in this new release are perfect for A2 size cards - a size I haven't made in a very long time - so fun to do!!!!

This week I am getting in touch with my country side. I grew up in town but I had a number of friends and an aunt and uncle who had farms that I spent my summer vacations going to. 

I learned how to milk cows, pick stones in the fields and clean out pig pens and much more!We worked hard ..... and yes we had some fun too! Honestly I'm a farm girl at heart. 

"Clarebelle & Riley" bring back some very fun memories for me! 

After colouring my stamp with alcohol markers, I cut it out using a stitched square die. The sentiment is part of a larger sentiment but I thought it fit this stamps perfectly. 
I really wanted to find a way to combine patterned paper that in my mind have kind of a country feel to them - gingham, burlap, denim and barn board. I was able to combine paper from two different companies and my stash to achieve my country feel. 
Some matching blue gumdrops finish off my card. 

Stamps: Clarabelle & Riley - High Hopes Rubber Stamps
Sentiment: Howdy Pardner - High Hopes Rubber Stamps
Patterned Paper: Tiny Checks - MFT, Snap Basics - Simple Stories, 
Denim - from my stash
 Tuxedo Black ink - MementoMistiBurlap - Forever In Time, Fishtail Banner die - YNS, stitched square die - YNS, Blueberry gumdrops - YNS
