Guest Design: Puppy Kisses for Christmas

October 26, 2016

Karen N here from Craftily Yours, and I'm so stoked today to be a guest designer!  Hope you stop by their shop to check out their CuTe stamps??!  They have digital and clear stamps available!  I used the Puppy Kisses for Christmas stamp to create a couple cards.

For this first card, I used the stamp  paired with Kaisercraft Home for Christmas paper.  I embellished the card with some lace, a doily and some pearls.


For this next card, I used a scrap of Dare 2B Artzy paper along with some white paper that I ran through an embossing folder.  I embellished it with a sentiment from Tim Holtz dies, some sequins and silver twine.  I colored in the fur with diamond Stickles.


Copics used for both cards:
Santa Skin:  E000, E00, E11, R20
Santa Suit:  R35, R37, R59, Y26, Y28

Top card:
Santa Shoes/Belt: E35, E37, E39
Pup:  W0, W2, W3
Santa Beard:  C1, C3

Bottom Card:
Santa Shoes/Belt: C1, C3, C5
Pup:  E21, E23, E25
Santa Beard:  W0, W2

Thanks for stopping by today!  Be sure to check back often here.  The design team at Gerda Steiner Designs always have super fun and inspirational ideas for your crafting!

Craftily yours,



Karen

Hello everyone, it's Karen here today.  I was totally inspired by Jennifer McGuire’s recent video on making simple pendulum cards. It was sheer genius and the minute I saw it, I thought about using her technique with Gerda Steiner's pigeons. If you haven’t seen Jennifer’s video, here’s a link to it - Cards with Simple Movement.
