Day 7... last day of our same-stamp challenge...

Before I get started, I just wanted to give the heads up that all the new stamps from Hero Arts are available now HERE at 2peas and HERE at Simon Says Stamps. Go shop! :)

On to the card...

Bummer that this week is over. I am sure I will be doing this again. SO fun. This is Day 7 of my same-stamp challenge with Joy. And instead of a stamp, we decided to go with a Hero Arts digital piece called Oh Boy!

Now, before you panic, using these digital images can be SUPER easy. I just open them... resize... print and color with my Copics. (You can watch a video HERE with tips on doing this.) After adding some fun new Basic Grey papers (more on that below) and my own little collar, leash and greeting, we have these...

For this one, I stamped a different background stamp on the top and bottom of the card...

I stamped a stripe background on the bottom of this one, and stamped it twice on the top to create the plaid...

Each doggie was colored with Copics. I then cut a collar and added Glossy Accents to it for shine. Finally, string for a leash...

082310 Dog Cards 1 JenMcGuireSupplies: Hero Arts stripes and digi dog element; Basic Grey paper; EK Success border punch; Glossy Accents (on collar); Spledid 66 font; Copics.

I am really loving THIS background stamp right now. Works with any style of projects - vintage to cutesy - and can be double stamped to create a stripe. Another cool idea I learned from Shari? Heat emboss this stripe with white powder on a white card. LOVE.

I just adore EK Success border punches. (Have you see all the new ones HERE?) And I am still lovin' that border punch I used on these. (The little dots don't show up if you punch with light pressure.) THIS guy is a fave...

Was so excited to use THESE new Basic Grey papers. Delicious, I tell ya. Yum. I find their papers are good for card making because one little strip of it really makes a card shine. And such good quality...

Finally, THIS is the digi kit we used...

Now... time to see Joy's masterpiece HERE.

See you soon! Off to watch some mindless TV and kit for my big classes at Angela's Happy Stamper. (By the way, if you are taking my classes there - good news! I went overboard and prepped for 8 cards for each class instead of 6, so we extended the class time 30 minutes. Just for fun. See you there!)

WOW! Jen, love your sweet cards, you have out done yourself, gorgeous! you put my pathetic card to shame...LOL. Thank you sweet friend for such a wonderful, fun week, I am sad to see this end, let's do this again soon. Hugs!

cute sentiment! i wish i was just a little closer to virginia! have fun at angela's this weekend

Adorable cards. Look at all the neat items there. : )

Such fun cards - love the doggie! I especially like your mix of stamping and designer papers; love the way you mixed patterns! Hope you are feeling better!

These are SOOOOO cute! I wish it was in a stamp set!

Adorable cards, and I think I might use that idea with a pug stamp I have. I'm a huge pug lover and have 4 and wk with a fabulous Pug Rescue group PRoNE (Pug Rescue of New England)

I love the EK Success border punches and the Martha Stewart ones I'm totally addicted! I thought after getting my cricut about a year ago I'd be done buying punching but since all these boarder punches came out that has not been the case lol.

Thanks for sharing need to hop over and check out Joy's project :)

Woo hoo! I love your overboard over-achieving sweet heart!!! 8 cards to make this weekend????? I'm just super excited about learning from you!!! See you on Saturday!!! Oh, and I have no problem with being teacher's pet :)

How fun a card is this! I really enjoy seeing how to use digital stamps, as I am a bit computer phobic when it comes to crafting.

I will see you at Angela's on Saturday--can't wait!

Hope you're feeling better today.

Darling, darling, darling cards! So perfect for so many times.

Can you just put cardstock into a regular printer? or what type of printer would you use?

I have enjoyed seeing how both you and Joy used the same stamp and came up with different ideas. Thank you both for all the inspiration.
Would love to be your partner anytime.

Cute ideas....haven't tried digital yet! I just received an HA order with the canvas stripe stamp and I love it. Thanks for passing on Shari's tip.

That is such a cute card! Love the sentiment, very sweet!

Adorable! I love digi stamps! Great variety and you don't have to store them! This little dog is too cute. This challenge with Joy was so fun! I hope you'll do it again sometime!

Very cute but I still panic over digital images!

Cute cards -- I haven't bought any digi stamps but that set would be great to have. I have the canvas stripes on order so thanks for the samples/ideas on ways to use it.

Hey great card(s) for this week. I enjoyed the concert (dueling banjos!)that both you and Joy created. Hopefully this won't be the last time! Tku for sharing your creativity. See you at Angela's on Sunday!

Loving that stripe background stamp....oh how you make me covet things!

cute details on the puppy with the brad eye, the collar and the lease.

I've enjoyed the challenge - your cards are too cute!

Love the cards!! They reminded me of your Roxie!!! She looks like such a sweetie!

These are great. I love the set you used. TFS.

I've loved the same stamp challenge with Joy. I hope there will be more of these someday. Just ordered the ticking striped stamp last week and am looking forward to trying it out. Thanks for sharing your talents!

Love the cards and the links to all those fabulous products you have used!


Just to let the ladies know they are in for a treat. The classes you taught at Stamp Away were off the hook. Everyone was so pleases in class.

Be ready to work hard but have a blast while doing it.

Adorable cards and what a cute dogie!

Love the cards as usual. Hope you're feeling better. Will be at Angela's on Saturday -- can hardly wait! Any idea where I can get the striped stamp that you used. I couldn't find it at two peas or Simon.

Such a cute card Jennifer...and I love all the links to your favorite products...if my husband saw how many times I bought something after being on your blog...he'd block your blog :) I'm off to purchase some of those big scallop EK love...

Very cute one!

Oh my goodness. I dare say you saved the best for last. This little dog motif is adorable! I wish I could buy him all by himself! Thanks for sharing! Loved seeing your creations everyday for the past week. :)
