This blog was created to act as a record of the cards and other projects that I have made. It is for both my own reference and to help inspire anyone who wants to take a look.

I'd love it if you'd leave me a comment so that I know what you think of my projects and that you've been to visit!

Anyone can comment, even those who don't have a blog. (Just look for the word 'Comments' under the three little pictures at the end of each post). Readers without a blog can add an anonymous comment, but please leave your name (and docrafts username if applicable) so I know who you are!

Slideshows of all the cards I've uploaded to my blog can be found at the bottom of the page.

Blue and Orange Puppies

Here are a couple of cards I made for a couple of my younger male cousins using a lovely stamp from Little Claire. This particular design I call the Woof Puppy because it comes with an extra stamp that says 'Woof'.

These are also my entries to the current Cupcake Craft blog challenge, which has a theme of Cats and Dogs this week. (Unfortunately, this week's challenge doesn't have a title so I can't add a direct link to the post).

The Woof puppy image was stamped using Versafine Onyx Black archival pigment ink and coloured using Copic markers.
  • Puppy: N1, N3, N5, R20
  • Ball: B00, BG02, Y17, YR02
The ball and the puppy's nose were then covered with the Anita's 3D Gloss to give them a realistic shine.

A panel was cut from white card using the Labels 1 Nestabilities die and embossed with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder. The dots were then coloured with the Copic markers.
  • Dots: N3, N5
This was then matted onto an orange square and a blue big scalloped square both cut using Nestabilities dies.

A strip of the blue retro squares paper from the DCWV Retro Prints paper pad was matted onto the orange and blue card. This was then matted onto a larger panel of orange mini dots paper from the same paper pad.

The sentiment, from the See D's Celebration Messages stamp set, was stamped onto a rectangle of white card using the Onyx Black ink and matted onto the orange and blue card.

I also made a version with a brown puppy:

Again, the puppy and dots were coloured with the Copic Sketch markers:

  • Puppy: E02, E11, E13, R20

  • Ball: B00, BG02, Y17, YR02

  • Dots: E11, E13
This card was actually made for a colour combo challenge (hence the unusual colours used) but of course I missed the deadline so I decided to enter it into this challenge instead.

ETA: This card is now in the Little Claire's Gallery here and here. For some reason they've put the image into the wrong individual image gallery.
