My niece is going to be starting a new, high-pressure job in about a week and she has been sick since Christmas. However, rather than rest up and try to focus on getting better, she has been out shopping, meeting up with friends, going out, etc. I guess that’s the folly of a 21 year old. LOL Anyway, I thought I’d craft this dog lover’s (yes, she’s a dog lover like me) get well card using the new-to-me Art Impressions Doggy Kisses Stamp Set.
I stamped out the tissues and tea cup first, then masked that and stamped out the sweet pup napping with it’s teddy. Then I used the following Copic colors to color up this little scene:
Dog: Y00, Y21, Y26, E31, E55, E57, E59 and R30
Tea: E55 and E23
Tissue and tea bag: Y00, Y21 and W1
Tea cup and teddy bear: B00, B01, B12 and B14
Slippers and pillow interior: B12, B34, B37 and B39
Pillow and floor: W0, W1 and W3
I fussy cut out the little scene, including paper piecing the tissue box with a blue plaid patterned paper from the My Mind’s Eye Moments Paper Pad. For the scene background, I used the second largest die from the My Favorite Things Die-Namics Stitched Rectangles Die Set to cut out a piece of white card stock. I glued down the fussy cut scene, except for the puppy’s raised paw and slippered feet, which I popped up on double sided foam dots for a little extra dimension and interest. I also stamped out the sentiment, “Sit…Stay…Heal.” from the stamp set in the upper left corner. 🙂
To frame out the scene, I used the largest die from the My Favorite Things Die-Namics Cross Stitched Rectangles Die Set to add a cozy textured layer in dark blue. To add continuity, I used more of the blue plaid patterned paper on the lower 1/3 of the card front. Then for the top 2/3 of the card front, I wanted to keep it bright but add more cozy texture, so I ran a piece of white card stock through my Big Shot with a We R Memory Keepers Next Level Quilted embossing folder.
The following is a Copic coloring and paper piecing process video for this card:
