Hello there! Today, I'm here with a card featuring the Santa's Helper's stamp set by Sunny Studio Stamps. It was difficult trying to decide which images to use for my project today, but then as I was coloring them, I had a lightbulb moment. At first, when looking at this image, I didn't see a cocker spaniel but, then I decided to color the patch of hair under their chin like a bandana, and suddenly, I thought they started looking like my babies! I'm so excited to finally have a stamp that looks like them!
I started off by watercoloring a piece of Tim Holtz watercolor paper with my Artist's Loft watercolor set from Michaels. When it was dry, I ran it through my diecut machine to give it a stitched edge suing the Wonky Stitches dies by Avery Elle. I wanted to bring in a bit of red to coordinate with the Santa's hats, so I pulled out a piece of red and white striped patterned paper from my stash. I popped the dogs up using foam tape after diecutting them with their coordinating dies. I stamped a sentiment from the set on a speech bubble diecut by Pretty Pink Posh, and then added some diecut snowflakes which are also included in the Santa's Helpers die set. To add a bit of sparkle around the snowflakes, I added some sparkling clear sequins, and then mounted the panel on a dark green card base using foam tape. Finally, I added a bow with my favorite red and white bakers twine by Lawn Fawn.
That's all for me today! I hope you like my card!
Thanks for stopping by!!
