Tim Holtz Crazy Dogs Collection

Hello friends!
Did you check out the Masterpiece Box Blog Hop? I was lucky to be one of the designers to share our creations with this awesome box. For the hop, I share the Penguin and Ninja cards (see here).

And now, it's time to share my takes on Tim Holtz Crazy Dogs Collection!


I am a dog person... (sorry for the cat lovers out there!!), this stamp set is adorable! These fun images are just the perfect size for card-making.
I picked out two of the crazy ones (they are crazy cute!) and water-colored them. 
Miss You

With Spectrum Aqua Markers, I have lots of color choices and they are so easy to work with. 
 I purposely left the dog (on the right) with some dots because you know...he is crazy! 

**on a side note: If you like to see Spectrum Aqua Markers in action, please click here.

With the fun pattern paper and strip of gold, this card is complete!

With the similar ideas in mind, I created another Crazy Dogs card. I purposely created a hot mess with the DMC silver strings and thought this image is perfect for it!
so sorry

The alcohol-inked vellum background seems ideal for this paper-pieced dog. Yup, it is also fun to use paper-piecing for this collection.

Can you imagine the FUN? I have yet to try more paper-piecing with the rest of the Crazy Dogs.
That will keep me busy for a while :)

Oh my, Virginia, I love your cards. I, too, am a dog person. This stamp is out of this world. You've made me smile because crazy or not your dog cards are wonderfully funny.

I just had to comment on this post too since I just love how you colored the dogs in an unexpected way. I have these on preorder and can't wait to get them! Adorable cards!!

Miriam Prantner said...

I love how you colored the dogs in these cards, and I really love the patterned paper and how you cut it in that first card!

Lisa said...

What fantastic cards, Virginia - I can tell this set is going to be just as popular as the Crazy Birds set!

Pam said...

Love these! I think I must have the dogs!

cassie said...

The crazy dogs set is probably my favorite in the box. I do have two kittens (which I love), but I've always been more of a dog person. I love what you did with them!

Barb said...

Love those dogs! (and I'm a cat person) Such adorable cards, V! ♥

conil said...

I'm delighted you're having such fun with these pups because they're just too adorable and crazy. Love the paper pieced're right, lots of options there. But your first card had me giggling...they're so cute and funny. Love the sentiment you chose and the cork to ground them.
