Basket of Best Friends

Hello friends!  Hope that you had a wonderful weekend!  I enjoyed spending time with hubby as he always makes me laugh…we have fun together no matter what we do!

Today I’d like to share another new creation I made from the Whimsy Stamps new August Digital release.  I fell in love with these guys and thought it would be perfect on just a simple little design:


This cute image is called Pups in a Basket.  I like that you can almost create any type of color or breed with this image by coloring it however you want.  So I found this adorable image online that I wanted to try and resemble the breed/coloring of:


Are these guys just as cute and fluffy as can be?!   I want to pet them! LOL!   Of course, the real thing has got to be the best! 🙂  And how cute would it be to add a red handkerchief to one of these pups on the image?  So many fun things to possibly do with them!

I used some plaid papers I had in my stash, and I wanted them to be somewhat neutral in color due to the accents of blue.  I’ve white heat embossed the banner at the top with the Whimsy Stamps Everyday Mini Sentiments stamp set.  Cut out all the panels with some dies and attached them to a top folding white A2 sized card base.  Lastly, I found some blue sequins to match and added some glitter accents to the centers.

Here’s a closer look at the image:

I’ve used my Copic markers to color it in and couldn’t help but also add some rosy cheeks with a white dot for highlights on them too!  This was so fun to color and how fun would this be to make up for someone with a new best friend!

So what type of breed or color(s) do you see in this image?  I’d love to know what you think!

Thanks so much for stopping in today!  Hope you’ve enjoyed my card and I’ll be back again soon to share more!
