Home is Where the Dogs Are – Custom Scene Card | CraftyPaws

I’m so excited about creating this custom scene card for a friend who loves her two Pugs and Chihuahua. I used three Joy Crafts stamp sets from Topflight Stamps: Love Dogs (which features 6 super CUTE Pug images), Home Sweet Home 1 (retired), and Home Sweet Home 2 (retired).  I think these are acrylic stamps, which sometimes don’t give the cleanest stamping impressions. However, that’s not an issue even for a bad stamper like me, with a MISTI stamping tool (and on the plus side they are much easier to keep clean without staining when using permanent inks). I also used a stamp from the Art Impressions Doggy Kisses stamp set to represent my friend’s Chihuahua.

I’ve linked up a video tutorial for how to stamp out a single layer scene like this below, but basically, you stamp the most forward images first, create masks for them, and stamp the images behind them next. You repeat that process: stamping, masking, and stamping the next layer back; until you’re done creating the whole scene.

To color up the scene, I used the following Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers:
Dogs: Lemon Yellow (051), Flesh (071), Oatmeal (064), Brown (060), Mid Gray (096) and Dark Brown (062)
Fireplace, sofa table and book shelf: Oatmeal (064), Mid Gray (096), Dark Brown (062) and Black (010)
Mirror, sofa and arm chair: Light Blue(036) and Cobalt Blue (031)
Books: Bright Yellow (052), Geranium (029), Light Blue(036) and Cobalt Blue (031)
Lamp shades, teddy bear, and other orange-red accent decor pieces: Bright Yellow (052) and Geranium (029)
Yellow walls and yellow parts of pillows: Lemon Yellow (051)
Carpeting: Lemon Yellow (051) and Bright Yellow (052)
Plant on bookshelf: Pale Green (045)

Then I layered onto some of the images the following Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencils to add details and lighten some of the watercoloring that had gotten a little too dark in some areas (think dark Pug faces):
Dogs: Beige Peche (1085), Cream (914), Framboise Noire (1095), Gris Chaud (1058), and Blanc (938)
Walls, sofa and arm chair: Blanc (938)
Rug: Cream (914) and Yellowed Orange (1002)
Fireplace: Framboise Noire (1095)

Lastly for the inside liner sheet, I used a couple of stamps that my friend, who’s receiving this card, has gifted me over the years. The sentiment, which I love because it is great for any time, is a Rubbernecker red rubber cling stamp called, “Pawsitively.” The row of paw prints was stamped using Simon Says Stamp Clementine Premium Ink and a handmade rubber paw stamp on a wooden dowel. Obviously my friend and I share our love of dogs and crafts! LOL
