New Stamps!

I was so excited when I saw the new Newton's Nook Holiday Hounds stamp set on Simon Say Stamp.  I haven't really seen Newton's Nook stamps before but the moment I saw the Holiday Hounds set I knew I had to have it and ordered it immediately.  I have 3 dachshunds and I don't know what I would do without them.  I love all dachshunds, they are just soooo cute!

My oldest, almost 11, is Snickers, a black and tan dapple!

Next is sweet Caramel, 8, who is a red brindle.  I just love those stripes!

Last, is my sweet adopted Charlie, a longhair with endless energy!

I just got the stamps in the mail today and I just had to make a card even though I had planned to work on my London scrapbook.  To start, I created the background using Ranger Distress Inks and the blending tool.  Next I cut some white paper with my Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Borders 1 die to create some snow.  I stamped the dachshund with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with my Copic markers.  Then I fussy cut him out and outlined the cutout with a black sharpie.  I added white heat embossed snowflakes to the background and clear Wink of Stella to the snow for some sparkle. To finish, I mounted the dachshund with foam tape and stamped the sentiment with Memento Tuxedo black ink.

I am entering this card into the Newton's Nook Inky Paws Challenge #15 - Add a little Sparkle!
