Hello everyone, this is Randy again and I am back for my last post as the Guest Designer for January. I am sharing 2 more cards today that features adorable pets from multiple sets.
I was inspired by the movie Secret Life of Pets which also has somewhat of a Superhero element with one of the pets.
For my first card, I used one pet from each of the following stamp sets: Who Let the Dogs Out, Hot Diggity Dog, Purrfect Day, Hello Squeakheart and Honey Bunny Boo. I also used the Bed Heads stamp set along with the box from the Popping By set.
I used the following Copic Markers to color the images
- Dogs: E01, E11, E13, E31, E33, E35, E37, E39
- Cats: C2, C4. C6, C8, YR61, YR65, YR68
- Bunny: C0, C01, C02, RV11, RV11
- Hamster: E93, E95, E97
- Bed and Night Stand: B91, B93, B95, B97 and paper pieced the bedcovers and pillows from cardstock.
- Cheese ottoman: RV63, RV66, RV69
- Box: BV01 BV02, BV04
- Cat Tree: B91, B93, B95, B97, R20, R22, R24, C6, C8
For the background, I took a standard A2 cardbase and blended Tattered Rose and Victorian Velvet and a brick stencil I had in my stash. Heffy Doodle has their own Brick by Brick Stencil as well. I drew the wood floors using a fineliner and used E30, E31, E33 to color them. I then assembled all the images trying to create a chaotic scene. I completed the card by stamping the sentiment from the Who Let the Dogs Out stamp set directly onto the card.
For my second card, I wanted to keep the design simple. I feel like this card can be used for not only Valentine’s Day but also Mother’s Day, Father’s and even as a Thank You card. I used the superhero dog from the Rescue Dog Clear Stamps set and the dog from the Yappy Happy Mail Clear Stamps set.
I used the following Copic Markers to color the dogs:
- Superhero Dog: E01, E11, E13. R20, R22, R24. B22, B24, B26
- Dog: T02, T04, T06, T08, BG11, BG13
I took the Stargazer Backdrop Die and took a heart I die cut out and blended Kitsch Flamingo, Picked Raspberry, Seedless Preserves, and Chipped Sapphire around the heart. I removed the heart and lightly blended Spun Sugar over the heart moon. I splattered White Water Color across the background. I found some holographic cardstock in my stash and decided to use it behind the background to give the stars a cool reflective look. I then took the My Hero Heffy Cuts die and cut it out from black cardstock and gold cardstock. I heat embossed the sentiment from the Rescue Dog stamp set and assembled all the components.
