Blog Hop & Giveaway | Lab Puppy | Last Post

Hello! I'm sharing with you my last project for the JessicaLynnOriginal Love Your Pets Blog hop. #LoveyourpetsHop2018   I've had so much fun in this hop and I hate to see it end! I was not all that familiar with this company until I got the pleasure of using the stamps. I mention in my video featuring the Corgi that I am so impressed with the quality of these stamps. They are very well made, heavy and remind of rubber stamp thickness almost but they are clear photopolymer. I didn't have to season these stamps. They literally stamped perfectly beginning with the first impression. I can't say that of almost all other brands of clear stamps, even the most expensive and well known.

Today's card features the Lab puppy and a sentiment that is part of the adorable Flynne's Puppies stamp set. Here is a photo of the entire stamp set. Too cute right?

So back to this cute little Lab stamp, I started by cutting a card front using the KAISERCRAFT Stained Glass Card creations die. This cuts out the window and a piece that is 4.5" x 6." I really liked the primary colored designer cardstock I chose but I liked it even better when I used some Bobunny glitter paste in Sugar to apply the pattern in this die to the cardstock. I used a putty knife to apply a thin layer and then pulled it off and set the card front aside to dry. The paste dries clear leaving the glitter in the pattern it is applied on. It adds a fun layer of shimmer and shine without competing with the cardstock pattern.

Next, I stamped and colored the lab puppy with Spectrum Noir markers on heavy duty white card stock. Once complete, I fussy cut him so he could be used on the card front.

I made the sentiment using one included in the stamp set. I cut a green flag and heat embossed with white, "Life is Better with a Dog!" I couldn't agree with that more.

I wanted a few more doo-dads for this card so I pulled out my nested heart set from CottageCutz and cut three hearts out of shiny red paper in three sizes. I accented them with white gelly roll pen. I also pulled out a round wood veneer heart tag from my stash and added a plaid ribbon and green and white twine to complete the tag.

By this time, my card panel was dry so I applied all the pieces I had prepared. I inserted a scrap piece of Fresh Market wood grain cardstock that was leftover from previous projects and raised the main panel with foam tape. I put foam tape behind the dog parts that would hang in the the window so he'd be level with card front and applied wet glue to the part that rested on the card front. 

Here's a little closer look at the card front details. Isn't this little pup just super cute?!
