Simon Says Stamp | Dog & Cat Dress Up

Hello there, today we are celebrating the release of the new Fresh Bloom collection form Simon Says Stamp. What a wonderful release! Today I am using the new Dog & Cat Dress Up stamp set. It is such a fun set where as the name suggests, you can dress up a cat and dog with all different accessories and there is some fab sentiments in there too!

My first card uses the cat from the Dog & Cat Dress Up set. I first stamped the bunny ears and tutu from the set on to white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I masked these off and then stamped the cat image on top. I removed the masks and it looks like the cat is wearing the bunny ears and tutu - so cute! I coloured the cat using Copic Markers (the colours that I used are listed below the supplies section) and then added some dots to her tutu with a Copic Spica pen for some added sparkle. She was then fussy cut out with scissors and set aside.
I took a sheet of mask paper and die cut one of the Hero Arts Nesting Circle Infinity Dies from it to create a window. This was added to the front of an A2 white card base. I then masked off the bottom portion of the circle with Post-It Tape. I blended Distress Oxide Inks in to the window with a light hand at first. I used Picked Raspberry and Squeezed Lemonade. I blended them together to create a peach colour. I placed the Extra Large Dots Stencil on top and then blended on more ink. I removed all of the masks and stamped the sentiment from the set below the window area. I then added the cat on top with foam tape.
My next card uses the same design but with the dog this time. I first stamped the shirt collar and tie image from the set, as well as the party hat and masked these off. I then stamped the dog on top and removed the masks. He was coloured with Copic Markers (again, the colours are listed below) and fussy cut out.
I used the same mask as the cat card but this time used Peacock Feathers and Salty Ocean Distress Oxide Inks for the blending. I placed the Line Dance Stencil over the top and blended on more of the ink to get a tone-on-tone look. The masks were removed and the dog added on top with foam tape. For the sentiment, I stamped the 'happy birthday' from the Tiny Words set on to black cardstock with Versamak Ink. I applied white embossing powder and heat set. These were then cut down using the Nested Banners Dies and added to the card with more foam tape.
