Another adorable stamp from doggonestamps.com! I knew when I saw this little piggy, for some reason, I wanted to make a very cartoony back drop for him. So, here he is in his cartoon meadow. I found the quote and it just felt right. I really like the cartoon feel of the picture paired with the elegance of the quote and the lines of the curvy rectangle nesties - it just feels like a story book. This is for the challenge on papercraftplanet.com in the doggonestamps forum. The challenge was to make a purple card. Well, I'm not much of a purple kind of gal. But, I do like almost amethyst. So, I paired it with certainly celery and so saffron. Then I threw in some black to ground all of those pastels a little bit. I'm not sure where I got the ribbon, but it matched well. And now a message to spellbinders - PLEASE make another set of the curvy rectangles! Everytime I use these I have to cut the second layer by hand because the next size up just seems too big to me. I promise -if you make them, I will be the first in line to snap them up!

Isn't this giraffe a cutie? I colored him with copics and cut him out. He is mounted on nestie ovals, layered with nestie labels. The card base is sunshine yellow, chocolate chip, and k& co. dp. The nesties are done in red and choclate with the same dp. I embossed the red layer. The giraffe ribbon has a sparkley ribbon slide. The flowers are prima and paper studio set off with a rhinestone brad.

This is my first card with my new stamps from doggonestamps.com. This little guy is SO cute! He's called "Black Lab" and you can just tell he want's to play. It would make a cute valentine's card, too. Unfortunately, I have no recipients! I stamped the pup with archival black ink. I colored with copics and sponged the grass and sky. The dp is pet stack from DCWV. No idea where I got that brad, maybe oriental trading co. The cardstock is from Hobby Lobby, no idea of brand or color, just picked what matched the dp. I used su hardware on the sentiment and the ribbon is offray.
