Love and Happiness Puppies

Time for a little Whimsy inspiration on my blog! The cute stamp I used on today's card is one of the newest stamps illustrated by Crissy Armstrong for Whimsy Stamps. Her images are always such a joy to color!

I almost started here by telling you for a change I did no fussy cutting, but then realized I did fussy cut the sentiment (I don't seem to be able to make a card without fussy cutting).
Anyway, the image has been stamped onto copic blending card and then colored with copics. As you can see I used a CAS sketch. I adhered the image panel onto some really old SU desigenr paper. Next I added the ribbon. The sentiment was stamped onto copic blending card, colored and fussy cut. Then I used pop up dots to adhere to the card. The little hearts were part of the sentiment set, and I decided to stamp them onto the white paper. Kind of wished I hadn't...
I added a scallop border on the bottom edge and a little bit of glitter to the flower centers to finish it off.
Products used:
Doggie Gift, to have and to hold (both from Whimsy Stamps)
xpress blending card, recollections card stock 110lb, SU designer paper
memento ink, SU ink (for pink hearts), copics for coloring
scallop border punch, stickles glitter, grosgrain ribbon
