Time for Cake -- a New Release at All Dressed Up Stamps

It's new release day at All Dressed Up Stamps! There are 4 new releases this month, and I had the really, really great pleasure of designing with "Time For Cake".  You'll see why!

I'm such a dog lover, that I'm quite sure Wendy Burns drew this new release just for me!  Thank you, Wendy!  I think it is just the sweetest thing!  Time for Cake, colored with Copic markers, reminds me so much of my dog, Winter, and I.   There is a local coffee shop, where, in good weather, I sit out on the patio with him.  I get ignored.  He gets talked to like he's a prince.  The mayor walked by not too long ago and said, "That dog should run for mayor!  He'd get more votes than me."   Hmmm.  It's a thought!  Except I like our present mayor!

But, back to Time for Cake!  I already mentioned I colored it with Copic markers.   I had my E71 marker make a big blop on the paper.  Can you see where?  I worked and worked and worked with the colorless blender to try to fade it out.  I'm hoping it covered well enough.  Most of my coloring was done by that point, of course.   I computer generated the sentiment. 

The fun dog themed papers on this card are from AMB Illustrations.  I like how bright and colorful they were.  The frilly heart is cut out from a die by Cheery Lynn. 

You can find what the other talented All Dressed Up designers did with the New Releases by checking out the All Dressed Up Facebook group.  You'll also find a folder for this month's Facebook challenge -- All You Need is Love.  I hope you can enter.  I'd love to see your creations!

  2. Another cute dog card. The blue heart and the paw paper are terrific Julie. I have a grandpup and he is spoiled...I buy more things for him than I do for my own cats.

  3. Oh I like the sentiment in combination with the image. So amazing true! I hope that more people will (re)learn to hear what our furry friends like to say!
    Thanks for playing along with us at our present challenge at Craft Rocket and good luck! Hope you will join us next month again.
