Sleepin' Pups

Today, I'm giving a sneaky peek of a "soon-to-be-released" stamp set from Elizabeth Craft Designs called Dreamers.  It's an adorable set of sleeping cutie patootie animals....like this pup:


That FuN pawprint stencil is called Hearts and Pawprints and is also "soon-to-be-released."  Love it.  I used Tim Holtz distress inks in Wilted Violet, Salty Ocean, Mowed Lawn, Fossilized Amber, Dried Marigold and Festive Berries.  The pup is cut with an Elizabeth Craft Designs, Stitched Circles die.  The frame around it is an Elizabeth Craft Designs, Dotted Scallop Circles die.  They fit perfectly together!  The green paper is Elizabeth Craft Designs, True Green Soft Finish Cardstock, and the background uses the Elizabeth Craft Designs, Watercolor Paper.  The pup is colored with Copics - W0, W2, W3, G46, and V15.

And then I used the "soon to be released" Butterfly Kaleidoscope Stencil, for another card with the Dreamers stamps and the watercolor paper:


The color cardstock in this case is Elizabeth Craft Designs, Mint Green Soft Finish Cardstock.  I took pictures of the process.  Using Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Wilted Violet, Fossilized Amber, Cracked Pistachio, and Salty Ocean, Here's what I did for the background.


And then for behind the stamp, I spritzed the stencil and turned it over, like this:


Seriously love that sleepin' pup from the Elizabeth Craft Designs, Dreamers Stamps.  AND I totally love the new stencils.
