Good morning! I am so excited to be hopping along with some crafty friends to celebrate the newest release from Heffy Doodle! I fell in love with the adorable Rescue Dogs stamp set and combined it with Superdudes for a fun, *blam*, *pow*, *zap* thank you card! (My husband is a comic book fan so I know the lingo…) 😉
Archimedes came to our house as a foster sheltie on March 8th, 2009 and, of course, never left! Last Friday we celebrated his 10th anniversary as a member of our family! Archimedes asked me for help creating a card for my husband and these sets were perfect for my superhero-loving, dog-crazy husband!
To start I blended black soot, chipped sapphire, blueprint sketch, salty ocean, and tumbled glass distress oxide ink onto a piece of strathmore bristol cardstock. I splattered it with water and white gouache paint and let it dry to create a starry night sky. Once it was dry I placed the Zapp Attack stencil over the background and blended white pigment ink across the stencil. I lifted the stencil and let that dry. Once it was dry I used the clever Cityscape stencil to create my skyline. You can cut the stencil apart and use the outline of the building or the negative space. I used the negative space and placed it over my panel. Then I blended black soot distress oxide ink to create my buildings. Once that was dry I placed the window stencil (from the same Cityscape stencil) over the buildings and blended mustard seed distress oxide ink onto the panel. I let that dry while I worked on the rest of the card.
Next I stamped the pup from Rescue Dogs and the boy from Superdudes onto white cardstock with versafine and heat-embossed them with clear embossing powder. I die-cut them with the coordinating dies and added a few accents with a white gel pen. I deliberately colored the pup to look like a tri-color sheltie and the boy to look like my husband! I stamped the sentiment onto red cardstock with versamark and heat-embossed it with clear embossing powder before trimming it down to a thin label. Then I trimmed the background panel down and adhered it to a white card base. Finally I added the pup, boy, and sentiment with foam mounting tape for a little extra dimension!
