Inky Paws “Woof Pack” Card

Hey crafty friends, I hope everyone is ready for a fun filled summer weekend. If the weather holds up we make take the kidos to the lake, and of course I will be squeezing in some crafty time.The card I’m shareing today was created using Newton’s Nook “Woof Pack” stamp. I first stamped it on Neenah Solar White cardstock in Memento London Fog ink using my MISTI. I was really wanting a super light grey for all the puppies because I wanted them to almost fade out into the background. The Memento London Fog ink is the lightest grey I have, but I realized it’s not light enough for me, so now I have to find a very light grey ink to add to my wishlist; woohoo, more craft supplies, that’s what we all need, lol. Using Polychromos pencils I colored one puppy black using a combination of cool greys and black. I decided to color the collar red, I think red looks great with the black and I feel like red is always the first color you think of when it comes to dog collars.

I used my Sizzix BIGkick to cut my puppies panel out with a cross-stitched die. I also used a stitched banner die to cut two banners out in yellow polka dot paper. I have lots of scraps of this paper so I’ve been using it in a lot of my project, plus I like adding a touch of yellow. Oh yeah, I trimmed down a piece of red Recollection cardstock to add to my layers. I attached all my paper pieces using my ATG Tape Gun. The front still looked a bit blah to me so I added a few strips of white satin ribbon and a metal puppy paw brad from my craft stash. Oh, I also added the small black and white striped paper below the ribbon. It was a piece of scrap sitting on my table, so rather then trashing it I put it to good use.

I decided not to add a sentiment to the front because I liked it just the way it was. My plan was to layer the red cardstock, and yellow pattern paper on the inside and to then add a sentiment panel on top but I could not decide on what sentiment I wanted. I’m going to wait until I have the perfect person to give this card to before I add the sentiment, because then it will be easier to decide what sentiment to use.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
