Two Dirty Dogs Layout | Limoncella by DCWV

Hello there people!! I'm dropping in today to share a layout I made using Limoncello - a newer stack that has lots of green and blue and is a little bit more masculine than some of the other new stacks.  Also, if you have boy dogs, it has GREAT little dog motifs on some of the pages.
I had this ridiculously adorable picture of my dad and one of our dogs, Hiro.  He likes to lay on his back next to my dad in an effort to get his belly rubbed.  This particular day both dogs had been out getting RELLY dirty in the garden and this picture was taken right after they came back inside.

You'll have to click on the picture to make it bigger so you can see Hiro's sweet little face!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!!!
What would you use this stack for, with all it's masculine colors and little puppy icons?
Later queenies!!!

Miss Kate Cuttables + Peachy Keen Stamps Swap Week!!

Hello crafty people!!!
I am so excited to bring you a new project today featuring Miss Kate Cuttables files and Peachy Keen Stamps!
Now, I cannot tell you how much I LOVE how these two companies and I love them even MORE when they are put together!
Here are the two Peachy Keen sets I used:
PK-194 Wisecrack SentimentsPK-291 Sampler Package of Faces
(The Sampler is a REALLY good way to start out with PKS.  There are 9 stamps in this set and with a little creative stamping you can use each face for so much more than just what they are intended.  For example: I used one of the 'kitten' faces and the short, 'bunny' whiskers to make a front-facing bunny face - it worked great!  AND this set is a bargain at $9.99 - the Wisecrack sentiments I used are also on sale for $8.99.  That is TWO PKS stamp sets for under $20!)
I had this AWESOME idea to make some eggs into bunnies for Easter!  I saw the little feet in the Wisecrack sentiment set and the whole idea just came together!

Since I wanted to use the PKS stamps instead of the original faces on the eggs I used the "Ungroup" tool to split the little face details from the larger egg shape and then deleted them.  Aaaand...BAM you have an egg shape ready to be stamped!
I was going to use one of the more EGG-centric (hah!) sentiments, but I did this card at a crop and as people were passing by all I could hear was "Oh my gosh, that is TOO CUTE!?"....so this sentiment was meant to be.
(In case you were wondering how I made the ears: I used one steel-rule die of a leaf and cut it several times.  I used the open space in the middle of the die as a stencil and I colored the ears through the die with Stampin' Up! markers so it would make perfect little ears!)

(You might also be wondering how I got this file that has FOUR eggs to look right with only THREE eggs.  Well, I eliminated the fourth egg shape before cutting and then, I took the base and just trimmed off the excess to only fit three eggs - PRESTO!)
Well, I hope you enjoyed this little Egg-stra SPECIAL card inspiration!
