Furry Friends Blog Hop

Welcome to the Furry Friends Blog Hop!

You will be hopping with the same talented consultants who bring you the Stamp of the Month blog hop. For this hop we are featuring artwork which showcases the BEST FRIENDS FUREVER promotion. I am sure you will find a wide variety of inspirations on this hop.

If you are just arriving here from MELINDA EVERITT’S Blog, or just starting at my blog then you are on the right track ~ Welcome!  The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around. If you get lost along the way, you can find the complete list of participating  consultants on Melinda’s blog HERE.   For this hop we have about 10 consultants participating and you are going to see some fabulous artwork.

I love this paper pack and can’t wait to create some layouts as well. Unfortunately I was not able to do so before this hop but plan to do so soon. I decided to show you how you can make some really cute cards with this collection.

I saw the cute three cats and knew this was the image I wanted to start using. I used pattern number 5 from Make It From Your Heart Volume 4. I decided to mix in Wisteria in with the pinks. I stamped the paw prints with pewter ink around the border. I colored the kitties with my Tri-blend markers. I also used my markers to color the Acrylic Hearts.

I then decided to make one with the puppies. It was a bit trickier as I had to make the collection of the three dogs. I accomplished this by using masking. I did use black pigment ink and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I also added a couple black dots from the Black & White dots.

Your next stop is along this hop is ALYSON MAYO’S Blog, so hop on over and see what wonderful creation she has for you today.

Happy Crafting!
