Guest Designing for Words 2 Craft By...

Hi! I am very excited today. I am a Guest Designer at the Words 2 Craft By challenge blog!

The words for the October/November challenge are 

Happiness is a warm puppy. By Charles Shulz

I love dogs and totally agree with this sentiment. So this was so much fun! Here is the card I created.

I started with a piece of handmade paper. I used the Dogs stamp set by Inkadinkadoo that I had bought a long time ago on a whim because the dog images are so cute. I used Versamark ink to stamp different images and heat embossed with metallic embossing powders. I used masking to create a small grouping and cut it with the X stutch Rectangle dies. Here is a closer look.

I used the Upcycled Woodgrain background stamp by Justrite to add some texture to the plain brown card base. The sentiment was created using the Simply Alphas set by Mudra Craft Stamps. I heat embossed it with Opaque Vanilla White EP by WOW!. 

I also decided to continue the theme inside the card.

I added a cream panel cut with the same X stitch Rectangle dies, stamped the sentiment and randomly stamped some paw prints with the Memento Peanut Brittle ink.

I hope you liked my card and are inspired to create something beautiful. Make sure you visit the Words 2 Craft By blog for some amazing inspiration by the super talented DT.
