Good grief, where did August come from??? I can't believe we are up to the 8th month of the year already. The good thing is that a new month means a new designer to CASE at Happy Little Stampers - CASE the Designer challenge!!
This month we are CASEing this gorgeous card by Gloria of Gloria's Craft Room.
Isn't this a beauty?!!!!! The colours are so vibrant and I love the masking idea too. My version uses a similar technique to create the frame but isn't quite as colourful:
I just love the 'Playful Puppies' stamp set from Mama Elephant and thought it would be nice to create another birthday card for a doggie loving friend!!
I cut a panel of white CS slightly smaller than the card front and then die-cut the circle (from Couture Creations). I placed the panel over some scrap paper and stamped the solid and outlined puppy paws around the edge of the circle, not worrying if I went over the edge itself. After stamping the sentiment I popped the panel up on foam tape on the card front.
The puppy was stamped on white CS and coloured with my pencils. I fussy cut him out and went round the edge with a black pen. To ground the image in the circle, I lightly drew with my black pencil to give him somewhere to sit and popped him on some foam tape. I then added some Glossy Accents to the heart and his eyes to make them shine a bit more.
I'm going to link this to the Seize the Birthday Challenge where I'm not adding the topping of 'Pink and Brown'.
You have the whole month of August to create one or more projects for the Happy Little Stampers - CASE the Designer challenge and you even have the chance to win a $15 discount to the Happy Little Stampers Shop!!
