I started the cards by using the Jessica Lynn Originals Pitbull stamp set and the mini misti and stamping a variety of pitbulls with Memento tuxedo black ink. I do each step all at once because it creates sort of an assembly line process and makes it faster to create. So, the next step was to create all of the card bases. I just used my Stampin' Up stash and created about ten top folding A2 card sizes (this was before I took my stash to Kinko's and had them cut it all - yay - see my latest video for that quick tip!!!). Next, I wanted to look through my sentiments and die sets to find some that would work for generic cards. I used a bunch of Simon Says Stamp dies and some gold foiled card stock to create some sentiments. I also used the Hero Arts Hello Gorgeous and The Ton's The New Pretty stamp set. I love these and use them all of the time!!! Finally, to prepare for the card making, I colored all of the images in with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. I had a specific dog in mind for some of the cards (my friend's pup that requested the cards of course) but, other than that, I just created a wide array of colors from pitties that I know and love.
Now it was time to start putting the cards together! I swear doing all of that prep works makes the process ten times easier in the end. So, I paired the pitbull pictures, backgrounds, die cuts and sentiments as I wanted them and started to create! I used tape runner, foam tape, sequins, Tonic nuvo drops, dimensionals, and more to create different, but similar cards. I think the video shows it best, so I won't write it all out here.
I hope you enjoyed and that you would try some card sets of your own. Do you have other ways that you do it that you would like to share? I can always - ALWAYS - learn new techniques and ways of doing things! So, please let me know. Also, if you do end up creating a card set, I would love if you would share it with me! Have an awesome day! Jude :-)
