Birthday Dog

Welcome to the birth of a new year...2015 to be precise! 

In honor of that, we've decided that our monthly challenge for January will be Birthday Wishes. We'd love for you to play along with us, and link your creations to the Inlinkz tool at the bottom of this post, or on the Dream It Up! blog, for a chance to win the stencil of your choice...and remember, using Dreamweaver products gets you bonus points towards an extra stencil!

Here is my fun birthday card using DL2039 Dog Die and the LX7026 Cheveron Background




I die cut the dog three times on three different pieces of patterned paper and then pieced them together to make this fun fellow.






For the Cheveron Background I mixed Regular Embossing Paste with brown  Tap Acrylic Paints and then stenciled on white cardstock panel and allowed it to dry before assembling my card.


The birthday sentiment is from Friendly Phrases Perfectly Clear Stamps from Stampendous.





Of course, more birthday inspirations coming your way from our "B" team:


Thanks for stopping by!

This is beyond adorable.

Cute, crisp, and clean! Somehow the Chevron looks less brown and more "marsala" on my monitor. Glad you're on trend with that! lol.

I have a basset hound and this is so similar in the face - his nexk is definitely thicker but I think this will be a fun die for Ted to send cards with! He has lots of spots so a large polka dot paper might look like him! He could send his BFF - best furry friend a birthday card! Very cute!
