Group Post Day 1 here at Papertrey Ink for the October release. I can hardly wait to see what everybody's been creating with Come All Ye Faithful and Come All Ye Faithful Additions. Such a honor to get your sets chosen to be featured in this way. And I'm so excited for you to see other people besides myself create with them.
As for me, I've still got two projects to share with you as well today. Let me show ya....
We've got dogs wearing sweaters and the holidays. Of course we needed a sentiment from the Christmas carol classic, "Oh Baby, It's Cold Outside." (Have you heard Harry Connick Jr. sing it? SWOON!) My Boston Terrier/Rottweiler is cut out of Smokey Shadow Felt using the Come All Ye Faithful dies. Realistic texture, no? And instead of stamping the sweater with the sweater options from the stamp set, I decided just to cut the sweater die out of Berry Sorbet cardstock and use BB: Houndstooth (how appropriate...even the other supplies have puns) to give it a pattern. When you think of all the background sets in your collection, you know you've got a lot of possibility applying them the same way.
As for my background, I build it using the Stitched Snowflake die and last month's Two Feet Deep stamp set and Fancy Flakes dies. A grounding border of holes from the Stitching Lines dies prevents the pup from free floating on the card and matches up with the holes on the snowflake. All works together.
Here's a close up of all that great texture. And isn't it nice to have the option of using the die silhouette shape?
Next up, we have a card featuring what is possibly my favorite sentiment from the collection. And one I added rather last minute. Had to have it. This one can be found on the Come All Ye Faithful Additions set. Which is also were you find all the holiday accessories for the dogs.
This guy is all ready for the festivities to start. I bet his tail is a'waggin' something fierce. He is SO ready to get his party on. Where is the egg nog?
He is stamped in traditional holiday colors, which are Pure Poppy, New Leaf, and Pinefeather here in PTI Land. And I've used BB: Striped Sweater (great coordinate) to add some design and interest to the rest of the card.
Thanks for stopping by and seeing what I'm up to today. I smile when I get comments about how much ya'll are giggling and laughing over these silly dogs. They were a joy to create and I'm going to get a lot of happiness knowing you are out there enjoying them as much as I am.
