Hi and good morning!I hope you all had a great weekend, even when the weather wasn't summery at all, at least here in Northern Germany... It's my turn on the Cards und More Shop Blog today with this little project.
Perhaps I wanted to escape the rainy wheather with this card with its blue sky and little white clouds. And I had to use a dog on this card - dogs always make me happy.
I started with the cloudy sky which I created by sponging Ranger Distress ink Salty Ocean through the stencil Dutch Doobadoo Mask Art Clouds 2 onto white cardstock. Then I die-cut it with the My Favorite Things Die-namics Cross-Stitch Rectangle Stax and cut a slider channel into it. I always keep the piece I cut out for the channel and stick it later behind the front panel - I like that better than the plain white card base peeking through the slider channel.
Then I stamped the cute little dog from the Penny Black buddy & duck stamp set and the gifts from the Jane's Doodles Mr. & Mrs. Claus stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, cut them out and colored the images with markers. Isn't that little dog just the cutest?
Then I mounted the dog onto a slider piece and put it into the slider channel, stamped the sentiment from the My Favorite Things stamp set Four-Legged Friends onto a white card base, mounted the whole cloudy rectangle with foam tape onto the card base and added the gifts. For the final touch I added the new Nuvo Drops onto the gifts. Can you see the difference between the Crystal Drops (I used Crystal Drops Caribbean Ocean), which dry with a glossy finish, and the Jewel Drops (I chose Jewel Drops Pale Periwinkle), which dry translucent? They are soooo beautiful!
Here you can see the dog sliding down the card to open his birthday presents!
Have a great week!
