Cute Dog Card ~ Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge

 HELLO! It's time for another fun sketch from the Design Team at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge! We start you off with a sketch and you get to pick all the other details of your project. You can rotate, flip, turn, reverse the sketch....whatever you like as long as we can still see the sketch design in your project.

I made a card for this sketch and decided to use this adorable dog stamp. I was inspired by a card made by Allisa of Rocky Mountain Papercrafts and it worked very well for our sketch, too! Since the stamp image is so large (4" x 5 1/4") I looked over the image carefully to decide which area I wanted to use because I only needed a small portion for the sketch. I used washi tape to secure the die to the image so it wouldn't move during cutting. 

Once cut I got busy coloring in the smaller image. Those pups are just too cute, aren't they! I spattered the top of the card with a couple shimmer brushes, stamped some paw prints an added some Dots.  THEN I remembered the sketch showed a sentiment was to be on the focal layer. So after thinking a bit I came up with the idea to stamp the "arf" image a couple times and pop it up with some foam tape at the top of the layered area. Problem solved...and it's cute, too!

  1. Cute card! I love how you took a huge stamp and trimmed it down--it makes the stamp much more versatile! Very clever!
