Crazy Dogs!

I was the lucky winner of a Simon Says Stamp Challenge a little while ago, and one of the lovely things I got with my prize was the Sizzix die set to match my set of Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous 'Crazy Dogs' stamps. I've made quite a few cards using these stamps, and found that I was often fussy cutting them out, so thought that this might make life a little easier! I find it hard to choose just one of these dogs, so made a set of six cards so that I could use them all! I coloured the dogs using watercolour pencils, then cut them out using the dies...I love how there are also dies to cut out some of their facial features, and collars...I used 3D foam pads to layer them up. I had a rifle through my paper pads, and picked snippets from several (Lily Bee Design 'Christmas Cheer', Penny Black 'Madison', My Mind's Eye 'Bright', 'Breeze' & 'Stella & Rose - Mabel'), trimmed them to fit along the bottom of my card blanks, then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. I added a sentiment (from the 'Birthday Buddies' set by Paper Smooches), then the dogs popped up on 3D foam pads.

What a brilliant way to use the Crazy Dogs, a great set of cards. The trouble is if I'd made those I wouldn't want to split them up - I'd be inclined to send them all to the same person so they could stay together! Thank you for sharing at Cardz 4 Guyz
