I'm starting off the week as part of Jaime's Pup in a Cup YouTube Inspiration Hop! I am so excited to be included in this video hop for Not 2 Shabby.
For this hop, everyone used the newest release in the Not 2 Shabby line, Pup in a Cup. I started by stamping out my images onto a piece of Strathmore watercolor paper with Gina K. black amalgam ink.
I used Karin brushmarkers to color in the image. I found the easiest way for me, is to scribble them onto a palette and pick up the colors with a paintbrush.
Once I had the images colored in, I used an embossing stylus and black and white acrylic paint to dot in some detail. Then I fussy cut the images and lined the edges with a tuxedo black Memento marker.
I set aside the images and started on the flower embellishments. I have always loved the look of rolled flowers, but this was my first time making one. I used a Lori Whitlock cutfile with my Cricut to cut out the patterns. I held one end with my reverse tweezers and rolled it up. Once I got to the opposite end, I added a nice dab of hot glue to hold it together.
After all three flowers were assembled, I added picked raspberry distress oxide to the edges of the flowers and forest moss distress oxide to the leaves.
For this card, I decided to finally try out my slimline dies from Trinity stamps. I cut two pieces of patterned card stock with the stitched scalloped rectangle die as well as a light yellow card stock piece. I was going for a shabby chic, vintage look so I ended up going with a floral pattern from my stash. It was from a Recollections paper pad from Michaels called English Rose Garden.
I laid out all the pieces on the card front and then made a card base from a piece of cream colored card stock. I also brushed the tops of the flowers with unicorn stickles and then glued everything in place.
For the sentiment, I diecut letters to spell the word PUGS from a piece of pink card stock, using the Charlie Alpha die from Hello Bluebird. I inked on some more of the picked raspberry distress oxide; darker at the bottom getting lighter towards the top.
I sandwiched the word PUGS in between two more sentiments from the set that I heat embossed with white detail embossing powder onto black card stock. The final sentiment reading 'Sending you...PUGS & Coffee.'
After I glued that down, I added some adhesive backed pearls and that finished the card.
It was so much fun to be part of this hop! :)
