Deck the Halls with Inky Paws Blog Hop

Hello Everyone,

It is my ultimate pleasure to be part of the annual Deck the Halls with Inky Paws Blog Hop organised by Newton’s Nook Designs. It is a fun hop with a lot of talented designers and prizes too.

For my card I used older products which were released in 2019 and 2020.

I started with stamping the Holiday Fringe image and a cute dog from Christmas Puppies on alcohol friendly white cardstock and coloured them with Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers. I used the following colours: dog: EB4, RB2, RB1,BG2, BG1, AG4, AG2, DR3, DR1, CT3, CT1; fringe: DR5, DR3, DR1, RB2, RB1, CT3, CT1, AG5, AG4, AG2, DG4, DG2, BT9, BT7, BT5. I used the coordinating die to cut the puppy out. I also trimmed the fringe a bit, leaving a little white frame around the coloured image.

While I was die cutting I cut a few layers: a kraft scalloped square with the Frames Square die set, a scalloped white circle and a smaller stitched kraft one with the Circle frames die set. I also used a simple circle die from Pink and Main to cut a red circle as an in-between layer.

After assembling the layers and popping up the puppy with 3D foam squares I used a Sakura sparkle pen on the lights, some clear shimmer on the packages and emphasized the eyes and nose of the puppy with a black glaze pen. As a final touch I added glossy accents to the bulbs and ribbons. In real life it looks so beautiful with the different textures and raised, shiny look!

For the sentiment I die cut the word Ho Ho Ho from rec cardstock using the Ornament Shaker die set and stamped Merry Woofmas under it from the Christmas Puppies stamp set.
