Silhouette Dogs


I had a recent request to make a birthday card for someone who loves and fosters dogs, so I pulled out the SNSS Puppy Love set along with my Lil Inker stitched rectangles and made a card. I stamped the images with versafine black onyx ink, then heat embossed them with clear ep. I sponged some ranger peacock feathers ink, along with some memento lulu lavender, and finally pool party ink at the top. It's done on a card base of GinaK designs wild lilac, and I added a Lil Inker diagonal stitched panel in white to break up the dark colors a little bit. The sentiment is from another SNSS stamp set and it was layered on stitched circles from Lil Inker, along with 2 matching mini brads.

That's it for me today, but thanks for stopping by and make it a great weekend!

Edit: Someone asked in a comment what SNSS means. It stands for Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.

A delightful trio silhouette on your super sponged background. I am loving the design behind the black mat too. I think we both probably have way TOO many dies! But who can resist, hmm? Your requester will be so pleased with this pretty & very special card. TFS & Happy Sunday

Your lovely inked panel is a perfect base for the cute silhouette doggies. I love the colours you used, and the white diagonal panel looks great,
Jean x as does the circular sentiment panel. The mini brads are such a good match too.

Really cute card!

Every since you told Cherie and I (and showed us) how you do your silhouette stamps. We both now follow your good advice! It works! Thank you so much!
