Ruff Day?


I'm popping in with a card for a challenge, well two precisely, both are for MFT - one Slimline:  Raining Cats & Dogs, one for Wednesday Sketch #576... here it is~

I used a circle to to cut my windows, only partially cutting the center window.  After positioning my cute pups on the base c/s, I stamped, Copic colored, then glossied their noses.  Anything cuter than a glossy-nosed dog?  The window layer was added, then the die cut clouds (which I added some gray to) and sentiment popped up on foam.  Okay so I changed up my circles a bit, but it is "inspiration", right?!  Hope it works😊


I had originally wanted to use a square windowed die that wasn't slimline, so I made another card while I was at it ~


This time I took out the three windows but left the large bottom window intact.  I secured all the remaining pieces with tape on the back, using it for the sentiment.  I marked the windows on the base, stamped and masked the dogs, then did some ink blending before Copic coloring.

   Card #1 -
      MFT - You Make My Tail Wag stamps
      Sizzix - Lg. Circles dies
      PTI - Clouds dies
   Card #2 - 
      MFT - Blueprints 27 dies, Lucky Dog stamps
      CCC - Birthday Wishing
