Whimsy Stamps - Day 2 Rubber Stamp Release

It's day two of the Whimsy Stamps rubber stamp release inspiration posts, and today I am sharing a masculine card using another one of Crissy Armstrong's Whimsy stamp sets - Man's Best Friend.

I started out by stamping the dog image on xpress it blending card and colored with copic markers. Next I stamped the image again on a post it note, cut it out to use as a mask and also used post it notes to create the sky/lake. SU and distress inks were used for the background.
Designer papers are from MME. Machine sewing was done along the image panel. I messed up in one of the corners so I decided to add the little triangles to each corner and since it's a masculine card, I decided to add a staple into each corner. The sentiment is part of the set.
Be sure to visit the Whimsy blog to enter into this month's new release prize drawing, super easy to enter!

Playing along in these challenges:
The weather actually got really nice yesterday, and it looks like we're going to have a few nice days coming up. My tulips started blooming yesterday too, and here is photo with one of my kitties, the one who thinks he is the man of the house :-) . I really need to do some garden clean up soon...

Have a great day!!


  1. Very cute image, love the scene you created with him too. Ginger Toms are always the boss in their own minds. He is a beauty and he has a perfect 'm' which makes him royalty! Karen x

  2. Love your card! A guy would love it! I can't believe you have tulips already! They are so pretty!

  3. A super card Ellie, I can see that Lab image will be very popular, could be any of my girls. And as always your stitching detail adds a nice extra dimension.
