Darling Daschunds

Hello its Alli here with a card make for today's Little Claire blog project and I was on Face Book the other day when I saw that someone had posted a sweet photo of a couple of sausage dogs and it reminded me of this really lovely stamp which I bought last year and I have to say I have used it again and again because it is such a great design. So here is yet another incarnation for these stamps.

what you will need:
Little Claire Darling Daschunds stamp set
Little Claire dinky sentiment stamp - Happy Birthday Mrs Lovely
8" x 6" white base card
white card to stamp onto
Versa Fine black ink pad
Tim Holtz Distress Ink pad - Spun Sugar and Cut n Dry foam
colouring in implements
dark pink heavy weight paper
Nit Wit Perfect Pair paper pad - white with pink hearts
various flower punches and dies
small butterfly punch/die
small hole punch
ring binder hole punch
wet glue
Glamour Dust glitter
white satin ribbon

Cut the base card down so that it measures 7 3/4" x 3 1/2" and now is a tent fold card.
Cut the dark pink paper to mat and layer on top of the base card and stick into place.
Cut a piece of the Nit Wit Perfect Pair paper (white with pink hearts) to mat and layer on top on the pink paper stuck onto the base card and stick into position.

Using the Versa Fine ink pad and the two large (boy and girl) Daschunds from the Little Claire Darling Daschunds stamp set stamp the images onto the white card.
Trim the image to size (about 6 3/4" x 2 1/8").
Using the Little Claire sentiment stamp Happy Birthday Mrs Lovely and the Versa Fine ink pad stamp the sentiment onto the image topper.
Colour the image in using your choice of colouring in implements.
Mat and layer the image onto the dark pink paper.
Stick the image topper onto the base card.

Cut out various flowers using your dies and punches and colour some of them using the Tim Holts Spun Sugar Distress Ink and the Cut n Dry foam.
Apply wet glue to the coloured flowers, sprinkle with Glamour Dust glitter, shake off excess and allow to dry.
Glue small white flowers to the centre of the larger pink flowers.
From the dark pink paper punch out 7 dots using the small hole punch and 1 dot using the ring binder punch.
Bevel the dots and stick onto the centre of the flowers.
Stick the flowers onto the card.
Cut a piece of white satin ribbon and fold it in two. Apply glue to the folded end of the ribbon and stick it under the petals of the large flower.

Punch the butterfly from the dark pink paper using the butterfly punch.
Crease the butterfly down the body section and stick onto the card.

Now you just need to find someone lovely to give it to - not a problem Xx
