I Challenge You - Shape Cards

 My turn to pick the challenge --- I picked shape cards......any shape but the usual rectangle/square. The above card was inspired by my sister-in-law (who doesn't have a blog -- but I wish she did!).  She mentioned that she had made some Scotty Dog cards for the December card exchange at a local stamp store.  I remembered the Scotty Dog chipboard book (Mary Engelbreit) I had picked up earlier this year.  I used it for the pattern and added a Christmas ribbon around his neck and a brad for his eye.  The other "arrangement" was made using the Martha Stewart branch punch, two little candy canes, and three red "beads." I embossed the whole dog using the houndstooth embossing folder (Provo Craft).
 
Supplies used on this little card:
  • Shine on you (Stampendous)
  • Black Embossing Powder
  • Kitty Tiles (Hampton Art)
  • Versa Mark
  • Orange - Red Chalks
    • Chalked over the Kitty Tiles with
Now go here to see what my friend did for the shape card challenge.

Those are both fabulous!! Where does the dog card hinge? I'd love to make a few of those, but I never could figure out where to "hinge" him (although I was thinking of mini-books at the time).

I love the Stampendous sentiment, too. Did that come from an Ebay win??

They are both so lovely, and you've done a great job "staging" the photo for the kitty card, too. I always enjoy seeing what you come up with!

To answer your questions "Sophia"
A. I hinged the Scotty Dog on the left side...it's not a huge hinge but it holds it together and seems to work just fine.
B. Not sure where I got that Stampendous stamp -- was thinking it came from A.C. Moore maybe??? or maybe it was a gift from Becky??
