New Today - Party Paws!

Party Paws new stamps are available today! I'm featuring images from part Party Paws - Sending Love and Christmas Cuddles.  One thing I really like about these images is the size - you can make a really cute finished card in a short amount of time.

The main image is stamped onto Ultra Smooth Premium White Cardstock and colored with Spectrum Noir Markers I used a combination of direct coloring to the cardstock and also tip to tip - use lighter shade to apply color to cardstock.  As you lay the color on the cardstock, the color starts out as dark and a natural blending occurs as the marker returns to its lighter color. I dabbed the Blender into color to give some texture and make it look like fur.

I used Die'sire Decorative Dies - Elegance Stamping Frame set (which I ran through my eBosser) to cut out the bear and decorative frame. I left the bear in the frame and added a light shade of Memento ink pad london fog on the inside of the border.  I then popped up the frame with Double Sided Adhesive Foam Circles. The sentiment is from the Party Paws Christmas Cuddles set. I fussy cut it and adhered it to the sign.  To add dimensional bling I added Stickles star dust to the white fur areas of his hat. NOTE: I used the UK sentiment version. The US version will have the US spelling.
