Welcome to my blog!


Welcome to my first blog post! I am so excited to be entering the blogging world!
I'm still finding my feet so there may be some hiccups in the beginning...I apologise in advance.

Ok, let's get to the card...

My eldest turned 13 on the weekend. He has always loved Dalmatians so I decided to try and create one with the My Favorite Things 'You Make My Tail Wag' stamp set.

First I stamped the dog, kennel and bowl from the set. I then stamped the present, balloon string and party hat from the 'Birthday Bears' stamp set. I was originally going to use the balloon from that set too but once I'd stamped it, I decided I wanted a bigger one. I ended up using the round balloon from 'Adorable Elephants' instead. I also used the sentiment from that set.

I coloured the images using copics and then masked them off to do some distress ink blending for the background. I heat embossed the sentiment onto some charcoal cardstock and die-cut it into a banner shape. I then propped it up with some foam tape for dimension and finally used glossy accents to finish off the balloon.

I hope you like it!
