I just placed an order from the Butterfly Reflections Ink site this past week and got my super speedy delivery, so I couldn’t wait to get crafting with these adorable sets from My Favorite Things.
To get started, I stamped out this absolutely adorable girl and her puppy from New Best Friend. I colored her up with Copic markers and then fussy cut her. I stopped cutting when I got to her feet, because I wanted to try a unique way of adding my sentiment this time.
Next, I grabbed a scrap from an alcohol ink background I made a while back and trimmed it to match my white cardstock piece. I also cut down a piece of white cardstock to 4in x 5.25in and then blended on some Hickory Smoke Distress Ink. I loved the way this looked with the coloring on the girl’s sweater.
I used the sentiment, ‘I’m so happy you have a new best friend,’ and repeatedly stamped in a line down the side of my card. I really like this technique for filling space without making things look too crowded or overwhelming. I also used the Little Buddies stamp set for my sentiment, ‘If I had a tail, it would be wagging.’ So cute!
I adhered everything to my card base and added a few green sequins for a pop of color against the grey. I really love the contrast of the grey with the bright pops of color from the sequins and alcohol ink background. What a sweet card to give someone when they get a new pet!
Hugs and love to you all,
