That's Amore!

It's always fun and nerve-racking to try a new technique, well, this month I've tried two! 

Today, I get to share my very first slider card.  I had bought and then lost some slider elements from Crafty Doodle Chick, so I had to just YouTube it and go.  When I saw the new Puppy Love Stamp Set that releases this week with Kindred Stamps, I knew I had to try a slider! 

My pups were colored using Ink On 3's Fade-Out Ink and Copic markers. I fussy cut them out by hand. 



I started by making a table cloth looking paper using Carta Bella's Buffalo Plaid stencil and a red Memento Luxe Ink. I felt like it looked like the pups were on a picnic. Next, I used a Lawn Fawn Slider die to determine where the pups would be. Originally, I had planned on placing them with their bodies where the slider was, but that didn't work out, the pennies showed. Instead, I used their heads! I attached a thin light brown twine to each of their mouths to simulate some pasta. 

Next, I built the background with a navy piece of cardstock, a dauber and Brilliance Moonlight White ink, a star stencil, and Encore Champagne ink. 

Last, I took the "that's amore" sentiment and stamped it onto white cardstock using black VersaFine ink and cut it out using a Spellbinder die.
