Wieners Full of Love

Hello, hello, hello!
Aimee here, with  a cute little Valentine's day card to share.
I would bet that by now, you know how I love
my Dachshunds...Wiener jokes abound at my house.
Well, when I saw the "bark if you love somebody"
stamp, I had to have it to use with my wieners!!
So, do ya wanna make it?
Alllllrighty, then!!!
Here's what you need:
a folded card
cardstock to mat with
watercolor paper
watercolor paint
paint brush & water
paper towel
heat gun
any clear Stickles
colored pencils, markers, whatever you want to color with
pop dots or foam tape
corner rounder
paper trimmer
ribbon, trim, etc
Miracle Tape
permenant ink - I used Ranger's Archival ink
Of course, you can create this card
with any colors, but I'm a pink girl,
so of course I made a Valentine card in pink!
Slap some pink watercolor paint onto some watercolor paper.
Dry with the heat gun about half way, then flip the
paper over onto your work surface and pick up the spots of paint.
Dry the rest of the way with the heat gun.

Paint your hearts stamp with the same watercolor paint.
Stamp repeatedly on the watercolor paper.
When I did this, I stamped once, blotted with the paper towel,
dried with the heat gun, and repeated a few times.

Pretty, isn't it?
Stamp hearts again with permenant ink.
Trim to fit your matted card front.
Use corner rounder on upper left corner and lower right corner.
Wrap ribbon around this panel, securing with Miracle Tape on the back.
Wrap some baker's twine or other trim around a few times, knot, and trim if needed.
Attach to the card front with pop dots/foam tape.

Outline some of the hearts with Stickles.

Stamp Dachshund on white card stock with permenant ink.
Color and trim. Place on card front.
Stamp sentiment with the same ink, trim, mat, and place on card front
with foam tape or pop dots.
I have something else I want to show you...
Here's an art journal page I did this week, using one of the
Here's your wiener....
and a cattle dog!
