Card #1: Paper Piecing Card
For my first card I wanted it to be a masculine card. I stamped out the Pup In a Cup onto a piece of Spectrum Noir Smooth Cardstock which is great to use with Copic markers. I stamped this image two more times–once on white cardstock again and once on kraft cardstock. To color in my images I used lots of Earth Tone Copic markers. I had so much fun coloring in this darling pug!
Next, I fussy cut it out as well as an extra pair of paws and the wrapper around the cup. This is where the paper piecing comes in. I embossed the cup wrapper with a Dot Matrix folder to add some texture and then popped it up on the cup with foam squares. I used more foam adhesive behind his little paws. This adds some dimension and texture to the card and makes the image look kinda 3-D. After I decided which of all the cute sentiments to use, I stamped, “Pugs & Kisses” at the bottom of the card. It just fit perfectly there. For my last touch, I added a sparkly orange enamel heart .
Copic Markers: Pug – E27, E25, E43, E41, E40; Coffee – Y32 & YR27; Cup – N0, N2, N4; Wrapper – E23
Card #2: Pug in a Window Card
Card 2 is my feminine version–hence, the pink bow. I wanted to put the pup in a cup behind my little cut-out window. I used a Peekaboo Window Die from MFT Stamps that also cut out darling stitched detail around it. However, before I cut it out, I attached a piece of Summer Splash Pattern Paper from Pink & Main. I glued her bow onto the corner of the window to make it part of the frame.
I used lighter brown Copic markers of this pug. I also used the small circle stamp and the semi-circle stamp to add cute dots onto the cup. I fussy cut out my pup in a cup again and adhered it to the inside of the card. You can see the pup with her pink bow on the outside, but when you open the card, you can see the full image and an additional sentiment.
Copic Markers: Pug – E30, E31, E33, E35; Bow, Dots & Heart – RV13, RV 14, RV21; Brown Dots – E23 & E25; Green Dots – YG00 & YG13; Coffee – Y32 & YR27; Cup – N0, N2, N4; Cup Wrapper – E21, E23, E25
