Sneak Peek: Small Dogs - Retro Set

Sunday, August 2, 2009

Hello on this quiet Sunday evening!

We went to the local fair last night and didn't get home till late. Couple that with the fact that I stayed up trying to finish my Greeting Farm blog hop card until 4am that morning; I was wiped out! I think I'm finally caught up on my sleep and spent today doing the laundry. I also made a couple of cards using the set being 're released' and showcased this month. So without further ado, introducing...

Small Dog Breeds!

I love how this card turned out! It's simple, but I didn't want to cover up that awesome paper from We R Memory Keepers! The layout came from Jen Del Muro's (I Heart 2 Stamp) Sketch For You To Try. You might recognise that rocking chair the little chihuahua is sitting on. It's from one of my favorite Hanna Stamps sets, Granny Hanny! I stamped the little chihuahua out first, then masked him off with a post it note, then stamped the rocking chair over the top of it. The sentiment is from a Studio G $1 stamp I've had for a while.

My second card showcases the pug from the Small Breeds set and the brand new floorboards background rubber stamp also being released tomorrow night after the release party (which starts at 9pm EST in the Hanna Stamps SCS forum. It's sooooo nice to be able to just stamp out the floorboards instead of drawing them by hand! I know you are going to love them too! I used this week's Mojo Sketch #97 for this layout.

Thanks for stopping by tonight. Tomorrow I hope to have another peek at a new Riley being released as well. Enjoy your evening!

I don't remember ever seeing the little doggies. They must be waaaay retro. Those background stamps are a must have. You did a fabulous job on both cards and I love your interpretation on the photo corner in the mojo sketch. Brilliant!
