First up, I wanted to use the sketch at Paper Smooches SPARKS and the color combination at Dynamic Duos so those two things are the inspiration for this card.
One of my favorite stamp sets is this one from Paper Smooches. I just love the big and long sentiments. This particular one can fit a few different occasions but I wanted it to go along with a winter theme so I added that adorable little birdie and some red snowflakes.
This is the Paper Smooches SPARKS sketch. The sketch shows a scallop edge but I used the wonderful, hexagon border stamp instead.This is the great color combination from Dynamic Duos
And, here is a card I created to go along with the Saturday sketch at 2 peas. At the stamp convention I went to this last weekend, I picked up this adorable and playful snowflake stamp and some great paper tapes from Queen & Co.
I took this photo from a side angle to try to show the Glossy Accents that I added to the yellow star on each snowflake. I used a Distress marker to color the snowflakes and then used a waterbrush on that. The star is colored with a Copic marker.Here is the Saturday sketch.
I also want to share a fun little layout I put together. We have two puppy dogs that we love so much. Bringing the new one home was so much fun although we sure weren't sure how it was going to go.
I picked up a roll of leopard print Duck Tape at Michaels and thought it fit with a dog theme. I just cut little strips and put them together in a zig zag design.
I also cut some in these triangle shapes for more accents.
