Exciting News, AND a blog hop!!!

Here is the entire new release:

I have two fun cards to share today - here is the first card:

As you all know, we lost our beautiful little fur baby on New Year's Day, so I can say with all my heart that "Life is better with a dog"!!! Catherine Pooler's Midnight Ink was used to stamp this great stamp, Better with a Dog.  I had some absolutely perfect designer paper, so it was adhered to the card base, with a strip of red glitter Washi Tape between the two patterns. Last, a red glittery heart was added to the focal pane. (shhh.....this was to cover an ink spot that my clumsy fingers left on the panel!!!)

and here is card number two:

To create this card, the background, Shamrocks, was stamped in green ink onto white cardstock. The sentiment stamp, Pot of Gold, was stamped onto white cardstock with Memento Black Ink. The image was colored with Copic markers. Using some gold Stickles, I made every other coin or so sparkle. The pot was colored entirely with Glossy Accents for some gloss and shine. While this dried, I cut scraps of rainbow colored cardstock, and adhered them together. Once the focal panel was dry, the scraps were mounted behind the panel, and the entire piece was popped up with dimensional foam.

Thanks for stopping by today! Hop on with the incredible Technique Junkies team, for tons of wonderful inspiration! Here's the hop list:

Patti, you are a crafting wonder! Congrats on being asked to guest design for Technique Junkies. They obviously know crafting talent when they see it! The cards you created for todays post are fabulous. Love, love, love the doggy one. We knew that life would be better with a dog, too, which is why we have just adopted Mickey. He's a clown and so much fun to have around.
