Furry Friends Blog Hop


Happy Thursday!

Welcome to the Furry Friends Blog Hop!  Today the Gina K. Designs team is showcasing two of the newest stamp sets in the store.  They are called Frisky Felines and Playful Pups  You can buy the stamps separately or bundled with the coordinating dies. 

Take a look at both of these adorable sets designed by Alicia Krupsky:





On my first card I elongated the tag so I could fit everything on it.  I used the partial die cutting method to make that happen.  I also used my Silhouette to make another black tag and a red mat for the original tag.

I love using foil, so I decided my kitties needed to star in a Valentine card as well.
I think this one will go to my husband since we are definitely cat people!

I broke out my Silhouette again to make a card panel with five out circles.  Then I made little matching circle frames for each one.  I used Distress Oxide inks to blend behind each circle and then added some water splatters.  After cutting and coloring my little pups, I placed each so they would peek out of the cutouts.
I heat embossed the sentiment and the paw print to finish up my card.

While I still had my Silhouette out, I made another card panel with three cut outs and coordinating frames.  
I used the kitties again along with their pawprints and a sweet sentiment.
