Paws & Leaves

Hi there!  

It's a long weekend for us here so I ignored all my chores today and hung out in the Craft Cave instead.  I got quite a few cards made and have two to share now.  First up is for Freshly Made Sketches with another appearance by one of the adorable new My Favourite Things Christmas pooches.  I paired him with some fun (and ancient) Pebbles paper and a Lil' Inker Designs pierced square.  

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Real Red) Stampin' Up
Patterned Paper:  (Christmas Stripes 12x12) Pebbles
Stamps:  (Dog & sentiment from Happy Pawlidays) My Favourite Things
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black, Memento Tuxedo Black) Tsukeniko
Die:  (Pierced square) Lil' Inker Designs
Markers:  Copic
Glitter:  (White Wink of Stella) Zig
Gems:  Recollections

Next is a card for the Muse challenge inspired by Anita's creation.  I dug out some old leaf images from The Craft's Meow (sadly now closed) and used the Hero Arts autumn ombre ink pad to get a similar look to Anita's leaves.  A bit of green matting pays homage to the green on her design.

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Old Olive) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Leaf & sentiment) The Craft's Meow
Inks:  (Ombre Autumn) Hero Arts
Gems:  Recollections

Such a cute puppy! I love him on the Christmas stripe surrounded by the pierced square! Thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.

Gorgeous variegated leaves, Jen, I thought at first they were stencilled ... awesome stamping! That little Santa puppy is adorable ... the pierced square makes for such a great frame for him ... and mimics the dots in the PP beautifully! Congratulations on being 'Spotted' at MFT with this cute little guy! Hugs, Anita :)
