Curio Dog!

This week the Stampendous Design Team is playing with the wonderful new Curio stamps that were featured in the January catalog. They are the perfect addition to your craft room decor when you finish your project!

Each lucky member of the Stampendous Design Team was sent two Curio stamps to create beautiful samples for you!  I received these amazing stamps:

 Then the fun began! Stamping and coloring (my favorite step):

Cut him out, or use the matching die from the Laurel Burch Dog Park Die Set (LBDCS04) to die cut the image. Edge with the 100 marker for a crisp edge.

Hmmm...picking papers and layouts:

Still needs a little something...

Some gold metallic thread criss-crossed on the top layer adds some interest!

Finished product! (The Curio LB Cat seems to like photo bombing! LOL)
