Wrinkles - Whimsy stamps

A cute dog greeting card featuring a pug and pug patterned paper from Whimsy stamps.

This adorable stamp set features pugs in various disguises including one with a cone on his head and one upside down in the cone!

The sentiments are really cute too....Pugs and Kisses....Pug Hugs.....Embrace the Wrinkles etc which adds to it's charm.

I teamed up the stamp set with the "Pets Woof" 6 x 6" paper pack also from Whimsy Stamps.  It features dog paw prints, bones and dog houses as well as multiple dogs.  A great accompaniment to the pug stamps.

An adorable dog greeting card featuring a pug and dog patterned paper from Whimsy Stamps.

The pugs in both cards were stamped and water coloured.  The Sakura Black glaze pen was used for the eyes and Nuvo Crystal Glaze for the nose, ears and dog collar.

I cut two of each image and glued them together to make the stamped dog more substantial. 

The patterned paper was mounted onto plain dark brown card before adding to a white card base.

Bella and Friends - Stampin Up!

Dog cards

The Bella and Friends Stamp set from Stampin Up! is an old favourite which has unfortunately been retired.  Second hand sets may be obtained from Ebay.

All four cards all use the same basic card making supplies making them economical and quick to make.

How to use a Border Punch

Cut a strip of card stock to size.  Press the card into the punch so it goes right to the back of the punch.  Press down to cut your border.  

Move the card along the back of the punch making sure to line the cut card with the pattern on the bottom of the punch.

Press down to punch again.

Continue until you have a border the required length for your card

The real versatility of these cards is the way you can change the sentiments for different occasions.

It uses a number of different card making techniques:

Have a look at the Card Making Techniques page to see how you can vary your card designs.
