Doggone Cute! - CR84FN13 and Sweet Stop Sketch

Happy Monday everyone! I had a nice weekend, how about you? On Saturday, I went stamp shopping with my friend, Cheryl Rowley, and boy is she a bad influence! LOL!! (Only kidding, Cheryl!) Guess what I bought? A Grand Calibur! Cheryl told me she bought one and I had been debating whether I had to have one or not. Then guess what I saw at my feet on the floor of the stamp store? It was fate! So now I own one, but I have to find a permanent place for it. I see reorganization in my life soon! LOL!! I had a great morning/afternoon with Cheryl talking about teaching and stamping! We never have trouble finding something to talk about!

While we were at our LSS, Buffalo Stamps & Stuff, our very talented friend Debbie was teaching a class. She does the most amazing 3-D creations with all sorts of images. She showed us one she did with a Whipper Snapper dog image called Relax to the Max (thanks to Anna Wight for the link because I couldn't find it!). Well, I had to buy the stamp and try it out. Here's what I did.

I started with the CR84FN colors of red, turquoise, and brown. Such yummy colors and right up my alley! I found those colors in Basic Grey's Max and Whiskers paper pad. Perfect for my dog image! I stamped the image three times. I cut one of them out with the nestie, one of the dog and bottom part of the chair, and then just the dog. Each one was colored and two were popped up using a dimensional silicone gel. Here's a side view so you can see the dimension.

You can see where I cut part of the ear and hind leg for dimension. I hope Debbie sees this (she's not a blogger, but she really needs to so everyone can see her amazing work!).

The flower was made with a die from My Favorite Things and Papertrey Ink's felt. I used the smallest one and it's adorable!

I used the Sweet Stop Sketch from this week. It worked perfectly for my image.

Thanks for stopping in today! Tomorrow is release day for My Time Made Easy and the MTME team will all be posting projects. I have a fantastic project to share with you, so please stop back! See you then!
