Busy, Busy, Busy!

Well today was a very busy day. First chores around the house and some grocery shopping. Then off to a friends house to borrow a die for a card. I have a so many dies I don't know if I've used half of them but wouldn't you know it the one I needed was the one I don't have. Lucky for me I have someone like Lynda in my life. What I don't have she usually does.
So recently I purchased several new stamps and dies from Tim Holtz. These include Crazy Birds, Crazy Cats, Crazy Dogs, Crazy Things and Crazy Talk. I have the dies for Crazy Dogs on pre-order for the September release. I have been working with them a lot and these are  some of the results.
 For these 2 cards I used the Crazy Dogs stamp set. All of the initial stamping was done using black or brown Archival ink. I used Ranger distress ink to watercolor the dogs and Dylusions Ink, in water brushes for the embellishments and I cut them out using the Crazy Things Dies. I used some chipboard for the 6 and covered it with a scrap of K&Comp. paper. The sentiments are done using the Crazy Talk stamps.


I will be entering both of these cards in these Challenges:


That's it for today!

  4. Love this card - so much fun and the design pulls together so well with the large numeral. Great job, thanks for sharing at Less is More! By the way, this card and your other one both link to your blog homepage rather than to their actual posts so these cards could be harder for people to find in future when you've done more posts after them. If you want, you're welcome to delete the links at LIM and re-upload them as direct links. No worries if not, though :)

I just love your doggie cards and your CAS designs are just brilliant. Your colouring is fantastic too and really brings them to life. Thank you so much for joining us at ATSM!!

  14. These are such fun and cute stamps and you've worked them brilliantly with texture and colour. As Chrissie says please can you link to the actual post and not your whole blog as it makes it much easier for us to find it. Thanks for sharing and playing along at Less is More this week.
