Artful INKables collab part 2

I have definitely been bitten by the stamping bug! Today is day four of the Artful INKables collaboration party over at Twilight Tuesday Inspiration Challenge. It’s definitely not to late to participate or just get registered to win some fun stamps. Details can be found over yonder on the blog. πŸ˜€

Today one of my cards is being featured! WooHoo!

I’m still pretty new to this stamping business and I’ve been having a blast exploring some new ideas, media, and just generally playing.

My card today features stamps from both the Into the Moonlight set and from the Fictionally Inspired set.

I rather sheepishly have to admit that I got a little cheeky with this card. πŸ˜€ When I saw this puppy inspired paper I just couldn’t resist because I KNEW I had the paw stamp and the Love Bites stamp just waiting to be used at home.

I went a little layer crazy with this one. I started off with three colors of textured card stock in cream, medium brown and a russet brown because they not only matched the printed paper so well but because brown just fits anything related to Jacob. After getting the base layered up the way I wanted I added the fun puppy phrase paper and the dog bone paper to throw just a small jab at all the “dog” references in the books when talking about the pack. Then to finish of the card I added a couple of paw prints from the Into the Moonlight stamp set using StazOn Ink in Timber Brown and the Love Bites stamp from the Fictionally Inspired stamp set using Versamark. We all know love does bite for Jacob in so many literal and figurative ways in all the books… poor guy can not get a break. So… after distressing the small square I ran the edges around the Timber Brown to add just a bit of contrast. And it’s done.

I have to thank Jacquie, Donna, Alison and Stephanie for all their tips on distressing paper. Your help was indespensible!!
