There are alot of boy's birthdays in my extended family + friend's kids over the next few months, so I thought I would try and get ahead and make a few.
I do love this little PB dog - he is one of my fav stamps - so easy to colour and he just looks sooooo happy! I stamped the dog with Versafine Vintage Sepia ink, heat-set the image with my heat-gun, then coloured him with pencils and OMS. I stamped the image again and cut out just the present, then cut little pieces of Best Creations Wine Red glitter cs and glued it to this present image and added some fine blue glitter to the bow/ribbon. I lightly chalked around the image with Kaisercolour blue chalk and drew in some little lines around his tail with a brown pencil to make him look soooo happy :-)
For the sentiment panel, I diecut some blue cs with a Star Nestie, then hand cut the white star using the same Star Nestie as a stencil. To hide my slightly uneven hand-cutting, I ran my blue ink pad around the white cs. I used my Martha Stewart Snow Flurry edge punch to punch tiny stars from the same Wine Red glitter cardstock (yes, really!). When you use this punch, the little leftover punchies are snowflakes AND very cute, tiny little stars. I popped this panel up on mounts (dimensionals).

I made a matching button using my 14mm Epiphany Button Tool with the same designer paper. I tied some brown/white twine through the button, then glued it to the blue ribbon.
