Welcome to the Sparkle N Sprinkle Our Furry Friends Blog Hop. If you arrived here from Brenda’s beautiful blog, you are in the right place. If not, you might want to start at the Sparkle N Sprinkle Blog for all the details.
The hop runs through August 3rd and there are FIVE great prizes available. To be eligible for the prizes all you need to do is visit each designer’s blog and leave them a comment. THREE of the prizes are from three different designers – if you miss comments on their blog – you miss out on a chance for a prize! The winners will be announced on Saturday, August 4th on the SNS blog!
Here’s the line-up….
Marie Berquist (You are here!!)
I have several projects to show you today. There are so many adorable animal stamps that I had a hard time deciding which ones to share.
My first card uses an older stamp, Leo. He is stamped and colored and then the mosaic design is created over him, using April’s Mosaic Backgrounds technique in Tips and Techniques. I used Spellbinder Dies to create the framing around Leo and added the Wild Thing sentiment. Full details on this card can be found here.
Sparkle N Sprinkle has just started to sell the wonderful digital stamps from Michelle Perke. One of these new images is Woofie in the Snow. This adorable image is also available in rubber in the Woofie's Christmas Stampette set. I stamped it on vellum and heat embossed with White Detail Embossing Powder and used markers, a dove blender, Twinkling Clouds Sparkle N Soft, Starfire Glitter, and some dry embossing to bring out the design. The sentiment is part of the stampette set and was heat embossed with Pine EP. Go to the gallery here for more details.
This card was kind of last minute. I used the Kitty Trio image and layered it on a decorative background created with Tear-ific tape, border punches, glitters, and embossing powders. The sentiment is Little By Little, embossed with Moss EP. Check for details on this card in the gallery soon.
Just a reminder that through the end of the month, the Sparkle Team presents all the stamp images in the Animals, Dogs & Cats and Insects categories on special – 15% off! To view all our specials, which also include a few glitters, embossing powders and flocking – just click here.
Now it is time for you to head to Shona’s sparkling blog and see what wonderful creations she has for you. But before you leave, don’t forget to leave a comment. Have fun hopping!!
