As I mentioned in my three prior posts, I am crafting a holiday puppy (my favorite!) wreath. This is part 4. As each one of these pieces could be used to create a holiday gift tag, ornament, embellishment or card, I’m sharing the process in the hopes this might be useful to you as you create your own holiday crafts.
For the 7th – 9th parts of the wreath, I used three more of the pups from the Mama Elephant Yappy Woofmas stamp set and Copic colored them using the following colors (featuring my favorite Christmas color combination – red, white and aqua):
Australian Shephard with snowballs: N3, N5, E11, E13
Terrier with snowballs: N0, N3, N5, R30 with Uniball Signo White Gel Pen details for furry texture
Bernese Mountain Dog with antlers: N0, E53, E55, E57 and E79
with Uniball Signo White Gel Pen details for furry texture
Floors: W3 and W5
Santa hat, candy cane, snowballs, collar, bell, antlers and scarves: C0, Y13, Y17, BG11, BG13, BG15, R35, R37, and R39
I also used the Uniball Signo White Gel Pen to add highlights to the noses and used a Sakura Black Glaze Pen to emphasize the eyes and noses. Since I was keeping all of these tags CAS (clean and simple with zero embellishments), to add a bit of interest, I added Clear Wink of Stella to the candy cane and all the snowballs for some sparkle and shimmer as well as Ranger Glossy Accents to the antlers and the candy cane for some high shine.
I die cut the images using the 7th largest circle die from the Diemond Dies Die-Normous Stack-Ems Circle Nesting Die Set. Then to create frames for the pieces, I used beautiful sparkly shimmer red card stock and the 5th and 7th largest circles from the Diemond Dies Die-Normous Stack-Ems Circle Nesting Die Set.
