I saw a super cute piggy interpretation of Beyonce’s “All the Single Ladies” song and dance on Instagram by my friend @biiirka a little while back, and I’ve been wanting to do a doggy version using the Hero Arts “Party Time” mini stamp set designed by Lia Griffith, also available HERE in the UK.
I made two CAS cards, one with the poodles for a crafty friend who is celebrating her dog, Sandy’s, birthday, and one with the rottweilers for a different crafty friend who recently got a new Rottie puppy. For the Rotties, I used the following Copic colors: E50, E51, E53, W3, W5, W7 with a hint of R20 for blush. For the poodles I made them all different colors. The one on the left is colored in E40, 70, 71 and 74; the center is: E31, 33, 35, and 37; and the right is: E50, 51, 21, 11 and 13. All the tongues are R32 and all the cheeks have a little blush with R20.
I made little post-it note masks of each pup and did a bit of Tim Holtz Distress Ink Blending to give the sense of a floor and to add a little color. The Rotties are standing on Twisted Citron with a wall of Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick while the poodles are on a floor of Spun Sugar blended to white.
For the banner titles, I just printed “All the single ladies…” from my computer one one of my favorite free font, Magnolia Sky, and popped them up on double sided foam adhesive. Other than that, I just added some well-placed sequins and doodled on some shimmery dots with a Clear Star Gelly Roll pen. Oh and the poodles card has the sentiment “Yappy Birthday!” from the Mama Elephant “Playful Pups” stamp set on the inside of the card.
The following is a video share of these cards:
