Dog-gone Awesome!!

The card I'm sharing in this post is for the My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Challenge, and here is the sketch for the week.

I used a mixture of papers from My Favorite Things and Papertrey Ink for this one.  The cute 
puppy paws were diecut with one of the dies from Paw Prints Die-namics.  I die cut them from the white base so that I could inlay the colored pieces into it.

The sentiment on the front is from the MFT Lucky Dog stamp set.

On the inside of the card, I stamped a cute sentiment from the retired set called Friends Like Us.  I really enjoy the snarky sentiments in that set.  

I also used a thank you sentiment from another stamp set, but can't think of the name at the moment.  I'll edit the post later to include it.

And to tie together the front and inside of the card, I also added a cute little bull-dog from the Lucky Dog set.  

Happy Anniversary to Altenew!

One of my favorite stamp companies, Altenew, is celebrating their 5th Anniversary; and I'm here today to celebrate along with them.  Below are a few of my favorite cards that I have made using their amazing stamps and coordinating dies. 

I think this first one is my favorite, because it's so bright and cheerful with the beautiful yellow roses from the Vintage Roses stamp set.

This next card was kind of outside of my wheelhouse since it has so much gold embossing and accents.  I'm not a big fan of gold, but I do love the results on this card.  The flowers on this one are from the Peony Bouquet stamp set.

This last one is another bright and cheery one.  I love how realistic this rose is from the Beautiful Day stamp set.  Every time I use this set, I fall in love with it all over again!

Altenew has come up with some of the most amazingly realistic flower stamps, as well as tons of other fun and whimsical sets besides.  I look forward to what they will provide us in the future.

Happy Anniversary to Altenew!!
