Work it Wednesday! with The Stamp Doctor

Today I am back with a new series, Work it Wednesday.  Every week I will have a step by step tutorial for a card made with The Stamp Doctor products. 

This week I am using the Dog Gone Dog Combo

Other The Stamp Doctor products used:   A2 Layers Combo and Tags #1

I started by cutting my white base with the A2 Layers combo 

I then used a brick wall stencil and some grey ink (Lawn Fawn) and created my background

The result

Next I stamped and cut my images from the Dog Gone Dog Combo.

I colored the images with Copic Markers: 

Reds: R59, R37, R35
Greens: G07, G05, G03
Dog: E31, E33, E35
House top: C5, C3, C1

And cut my tag with the Tags #1 Die set and stamped my sentiment 

Next I added some foam tape to the back of my images..... 

However before I took the backing off I placed and did not like the flatness of the background.   I hand cut a hill out of brown cardstock and decided I liked that better.   I placed all of my images and after inking the edges of the sentiment with Kraftin Kimme Ink.  I added a few metal embellishments to each side of the tag.  

Next I cut a few more layers with the A2 Layers Combo.

Once I had these I assembled my layers.  

I then added the dog bowl to the envelope 

I hope you enjoyed!

See you soon!

Sippy Tia from Some Odd Girl

Today I am back sharing Sippy Tia from Some Odd Girl.  

I think this is the cutest image, and tried to decide how to showcase it.   I finally thought about how I am such a light weight when it comes to alcohol and am often seen drinking the juice box so I thought it would be fun as a birthday card.  

Colors Used:

ProMarkers: Skin- Coral, Sunkissed Pink, Blush, Baby Pink

Hoodie: R85, R83, R81
Jeans: B97, B95, B93, B91
Eyes: G03, G00
Hair: E29, E25, E23
Shoes and milk, W3, W1 colorless blender

I cut my my base layers (all but the last mat) with my A2 Layers Combo from The Stamp Doctor.  

I added some Doodlebug Glitter Enamel dots in the Hello Collection and a white paper doily.  Lastly I type my sentiment and added a birthday embellishment from my stash. 

I hope you enjoyed.  See you soon.

Valentine's tag topper card from The Stamp Doctor

Today I am back with a fun card tutorial with the 3" Tag topper die from The Stamp Doctor.

First choose your tag topper and paper.

Place your die on your paper and run through your die cutting machine.

Here you can see the cut out part.

Line up your edge with your paper trimmer and trim the one side.

Next flip and trim the other side.

Now you have your tag.   

Next I inked the edges of the tag and cut down a piece of pattern paper and cardstock to add to the tag and inked as well.

I wanted to add a bit more so I cut a paper doily down and also inked the edges.

Once everything was inked I assembled my tag.

Next I cut my card mats.   I used the A2 Layers Combo.  The middle mat I cut and then trimmed down.  I plan to make several of these so I can use the other pieces.

I inked my pattern paper for the card and assembled.  Now I have my card base and tag.  I cut the length of my tag down to fit a bit better on my card.

I adhered my tag down to my card.  

Now I can add an image or sentiment to the card.

For this one I used Arrow Words 1.  

I cut a small piece of white cardstock and stamped the word love.

Next I inked the sentiment strip with red ink.

Lastly I added some foam tape to the sentiment to pop it up a bit. 

I adhered the sentiment down and now I have a cute fun card.   

I hope you enjoyed!  

See you soon!

I stamped the donuts with my Kraftin Kimmie Wicked Black ink.   I then went back in with the sprinkle stamp and added the sprinkles.

I then colored with my copic makers: 

Pinks:  R85, R83, R81
Blues: BG49, BG45, BG11
Yellows: Y17, Y15
Greens: YG13, YG06, YG03

I then used the new ink, along with a few other inks with the new sprinkle stencil to add the sprinkles to the white space.  My goal was for the sprinkles to look like they were sitting on a the table in between the donuts.

I used the A2 Layers combo dies to cut my mats.  

I then stamped another donut and cut out with a circle die.   Used the same color combo for the blues.   I cut the sentiments with banners and inked the edges with the new CHARMING CHARTREUSE ink.  Lastly I added some of the new yummy Kimmie Rainbow dots   

See you back here tomorrow!

Happy hoppin'!
