I Dig You
This card is part of Studio Els in Scrapbooking.com Magazine, April 2014 issue, along with more spring projects from other designers.
The stamp set is Delightful Dogs #2 from Inky Antics and it's filled with adorable dog images & several sentiments. I used Real Red for the backing card with dog patterned paper, red washi tape & two dies from the Katie Label Pivot Card that I have stamped my sentiment onto.
Too cute! That sweet little dog is staring up at his bone tree wishing a bone would fall off. I saw this stamp set & wanted it just for this sentiment "Sittin' & thinkin' about you!" - perfect for Karen Burniston's Garden Bench.
I cut the cloud patterned paper at the same time as I cut the base card so I know that it will fit perfectly on my card. You don't have to worry about the dies cutting through 2 layers of card stock, they cut like a charm. I die cut the All Seasons Tree using Early Espresso Core'dinations & the foliage from Kiwi Kiss. I made a cover for the bench by cutting a tan piece of paper with the Garden Bench die then cutting it out in 4 spots (top & bottom of the arms) to create a bench cover that I can glue over the top of the white bench on my base card. I used the grass die that's included in the Garden Bench set to die cut several pieces of grass. I glued a line of grass all along the fold of the card & pop dotted one in front of the tree. I sponged Peeled Paint Distress Ink onto my white base bottom portion. I used the Katie Label Pivot Card dies for my sentiments.
I stamped the bones onto Whisper White using Baked Brown Sugar ink, then fussy cut them & used a Stampin' Write Marker to trace around the edges of the bones to hide some white areas due to imperfect cutting. I stamped the dog on Whisper White using Black Tuxedo Memento ink & colored using Spectrum Noir markers.
