STAMPlorations Special Release - The Bee's Knees Pets Mini Hop


We've got a special release at STAMPlorations - extra-special to me, because it's one of my designs!  Meet The Bee's Knees Pets, a combination of images and tongue-in-cheek sentiments.  I've made a couple of cards for you, and you need to visit STAMPlorations blog to see some more wonderful creations.


For this first card, I used the cat image, colouring with Distress Markers.  I had a diecut frame on my desk begging to be used, so I stamped a background with the Distressed Damask background stamp to make it look like wallpaper to hang my cat portrait on, and added a sentiment from my set.


For this second card, I used the sheepdog image and just coloured it with Black Soot and a paintbrush, with a touch of tattered rose.  The stick is actually the string/twine for the jar in the Vignette: Eclectic Florals set.  You can see below where I got my inspiration for this image.  Florence isn't very good at catching sticks - I think she needs glasses!

Anyway, you need leave a comment on the STAMPlorations blog and the other hop stops to be in with a chance of winning this set.  Off you go!  If you're not the lucky winner, the set is available from the STAMPloraitons store at 10% discount until 16 September.

  12. OKAY! Let's just say you're a brilliant designer and leave it at that. LOVE these fur babies, love especially that one of them is one of yours. Great cards you made out of them.This one is a must have. BTW, don't worry...I've never had a dog that would fetch anything.

  14. Feline and canine cuteness to the max! We have always been 'cat people' so of course my fav is the sweet kitty - great job capturing the 'cat attitude' in the body position! The "Florence' stamp has such a sweet, friendly and eager to fetch (yeah right!) expression! Perhaps you can add a pair of spectacles to your next dog & cat images for our elderly and much loved furry pals!
