Moon Doggy!

Wow! Can you believe it's already June? Time is just flying by... seems like just yesterday I was starting this little ole blog, wondering if anyone would want to read my silly ramblings. Now I can't remember life before blogging!

I'm so excited that summer is on it's way! There's nothing as wonderful as stamping at 7:00pm with the sun still streaming on my face through my studio window! So last night, with sunlight bouncing off the walls, I read Beate's blog and saw the link she had to the Sketch This blog. I just knew I had to attempt their most recent sketch with some of the new Cat's Pajamas stamps.

I started by stamping Moon Doggy {F-7473} on White Conqueror card stock in Ancient Page Coal Black and then stamping Sand Pail {F-7469} around him to ground him a little. Next I colored the images in with Cool Caribbean, Brilliant Blue and So Saffron. Doesn't he just look too cool with his stylin' board? The designer paper is from the K & Company Happy Trails paper pad I got the other day. I can't believe yesterday's card and today's card were made from the same line of paper - this collection is just so versatile! So, back to the card... I matted the square on a Mega Scalloped Circle punch and pierced holes around the edges of all the patterned paper pieces.

Next I stamped Fun in The Sun {C-7465} in Coal Black on white card stock and colored in with Barely Banana reinker and an aquapen. I cut the circle out with my Creative Memories cutting system and then used the technique explained on Beate's blog for scalloped ovals to make a sun using my Fiskars Victorian decorative scissors. I then sponged the edges with So Saffron ink and glued down with a pop dot. I Cuttlebugged the main background piece with the D'Vine swirls embossing folder and lightly sanded to emphasize the swirls. I then glued all the pieces to a So Saffron card base and added some dots around the border with my Sakura Clear Glaze Pen.

  17. It's hard to keep up with you. I want to comment on every card you post. So I had to have "Julee commenting day" today. This is so FUN!!! I love the pieces of paper "pierced" together and the cuttlebugging over the designer paper.
