This is the fifth in the series of my favorite Christmas puppy stamps that I am coloring up to create a holiday puppy wreath. Each one of these pieces could be used to create a holiday gift tag, ornament, embellishment or card, so I’m sharing the process in case this might be useful to you as you create your own holiday crafts.
For the 11th and 12th parts of the wreath, I used two critters from the Mama Elephant Lunar Animals stamp set along with a few accessories 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):
Dalmatian doing the splits: N0, N4, N5
Siberian Husky (TRIED SOMETHING NEW by modifying rabbit from the Lunar Animals into a dog by erasing the ink in the ear areas before stamping and then doodling in the prick ears with a Copic Multiliner Pen in 0.1 pt): N0, N1, N3, N4, N5, R30
Floors: W3 and W5
Antlers (from one of the Yappy Woofmas dogs), bone and bow (also from Yappy Woofas and fussy cut around so the Dalmatian looks like he’s holding it), and present: N0, BG11, BG13, BG15, R35, R37, and R39
I used a Sakura Black Glaze Pen to emphasize the eyes and noses, and since I was keeping all of these tags CAS (clean and simple with zero embellishments). However, to add a bit of interest I added Clear Wink of Stella to the present as well as the bow on the bone for some sparkle and shimmer. I also coated the antlers with Ranger Glossy Accents 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.
