Woof!

I made a little doggie ornament the other day between cutting kits for today's make & take at Ben Franklin Crafts Pearl City store. Got a little distracted after finding this cute die in my stash. I used the Sizzix dog die with paw from the baby line and cut it out of chipboard.
This next card came about as I was playing with Tim Holtz distress embossing powder which I got from the store. It's kind of hard to see in the picture but I used 2 different colors of embossing powder for the stamped background. This embossing powder is different from regular embossing powder as it looks and feels like sand. But it gives your stamped image a more textured look. I used some scraps to finish the card. The background stamp is a Hero Arts stamp and the cute little girl and word are Dandelion Design stamps.I made another card before making this one but I used different colors on the first card. You can't really see it well but I spritzed the pink shapeability die with a new product from Tsukineko called Ink Potion #9. I added Memento Rosebud reinker and Vegas gold metallic ink to the Ink Potion #9 bottle to get the sparkly gold effect on the paper.
This photo is closer and you can see some of the sparkly on the paper.
Well, I have to get ready for the paper party and I hope to see you there today.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!!!
