Hello friends! Welcome to Day 2 of Papertrey Ink's April release. The sweet sets I'm introducing you to today are especially for you dog lovers out there :). We've got 4 dogs here...all serving a different purpose on the farm, and I can't imagine life without them.
I've used the new Paws & Kisses and A Bit More: Paws & Kisses stamp sets and their coordinating dies on my projects today. Each will be available for purchase on April 15th, 10Pm EST. I did cut this little pup from Saffron Spice cardstock, then stamped the outline in True Black, with his inner body color stamped in Fine Linen. I paper-pieced his tiny ears using Bitty Big Olive Twist paper. I then added spots to my puppy using embossing enamel, heated and melted into place.
The sentiments in these sets are what make them so special. They are truly heart-warming and unique. I used Kraft cardstock and the You Have My Heart die to create my focal point. I then added myself sentiment and paws, heat embossing them with white embossing powder. In the background, I used the new Simply Stitched A2 Vertical dies to create my layers, using more Bitty Big Olive Twist and Soft Stone.
The new Bitty Big colors inspired me so much this month. I am usually the one who stays clear of anything but pastels, but I had so much fun creating with this lovely, dark, rich colors, especially with this fun set of stamps. Who can possibly resist a polka dot weenier dog? :)
I paper-pieced my pup on this card, stamping his ears in Americana ink. Across the bottom of my card, I added a second sentiment and puppy prints, stamping in Americana, Fine Linen, and Pure Poppy for the larger hearts.
This sentiment is the truth! There are days that my dogs just totally seem to get me and understand and then all of the sudden, everything is better :). My sentiment is stamped in Honey Nut. More Bitty Big Olive Twist used across the top, with Bitty Big Honey Nut used on my pup.
On my last card, I stamped my pup in Soft Stone ink with his ears stamped in Cocoa Bean. I then added spots to him by using images from a new stamp set you hear more about this month, the Corner Adorner: April set. The spots are stamped in Fine Linen.
My sentiment was stamped on a die cut Scalloped Tag...love it! The new Shape Shifters: Square 1 die was used to create my focal point, cut from the New Gray, with puppy tracks stamped in Cocoa Bean around the edges.
Thank you so much for stopping by. There's oodles more to see and enjoy on the Papertrey Ink blog!
