Sloopy Rules

As you can guess, when my dachshund Sloopy heard this week's Outlines Challenge was to incorporate a photograph into my project, well, let's just say that she insisted that it be a picture of her. She rules this house. Won't you play along too for your chance to win a $25 gift certificate from Outlines Rubber Stamp Company? All the details can be found on the Outlines Challenge Blog.

I used one of my favorite photos of Sloopy to feature on this card. It is from three springs ago, when I took her for a walk at The Ohio State University. They always have the prettiest beds of tulips on campus, so I couldn't resist having a photo shoot.

I framed Sloopy's picture, and a portion of a picture of the tulip bed using the biggest and smallest frames from the Outlines stamp "Frames and Mats" (K-1195). These frames were simply made by stamping this image with Marvy black dye onto X-Press It cardstock and cutting.

I used a portion of Outlines "Split Layering Collage-Dog" (I-1063) by also stamping with Marvy black dye ink onto X-Press It cardstock. I colored the collar and tag using Copic markers. Using Picksey Pick-Ups, I added some Swarovski crystals, Clear Size 9, to add a little touch of bling.

All frames were then arranged onto two layers of patterned paper from The Paper Studio. A white dog bone clip put the finishing touches on this card.

I cannot wait to see what photos my fellow design team members used this week. Isn't always fun to see real life pictures from your online stamping friends? Make sure to visit their blogs to see how they incorporated photos into their projects.

Love that beautiful photo of Sloopy and those gorgeous tulips! The frame images are perfectly matched with the Dogs Rule image and the bone clip is the perfect accent. Great job!

I'm very interested in the Frames and Mats stamps - I love the way you used them. Are they new? They just seem like they could be very useful. Were they difficult to cut out after you stamped them? Darling dog - I saved this card idea in my file for some of my doggy's pictures (I have mostly Cairn Terriers). Thanks
