Sandy Claws is coming...

I couldn't WAIT to ink this stamp. I have wanted it for some time now, and I love it as much as I thought I would! Honestly, I have some friends who will think this is pretty funny. Since I live in Louisiana, it seems to have a little Cajun flavor too, don't you think?

The stamps are from the Gina K Designs set (appropriately) called Sandy Claws . This is my first time to stamp with Gina K stamps, and I can tell you they are very deeply etched. I LOVE that!

I stamped both the main image and the sentiment on watercolor paper using Versafine Onyx Black ink, then embossed with JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder.

The image was colored with Tombow markers and a Tombow blender pen using colors chosen to coordinate with the designer paper. I used White Liquid Applique for the fur.

The main image was cut out and embossed with an oval Nestabilities die. I used a scalloped Nestabilities die for the red layer behind it.

For a little bling on the sentiment I put a bead of Stickles Glitter Glue around the edge, and added some Red Geo Shapes stickers on each side.

The designer paper is from the Basic Grey Fruitcake collection.

I have a SALE going on in the store that started this evening, and runs through the end of this month. I have included quite a few Christmas images as well as others in almost every category. Be sure to check it out HERE .

I'm ordering the Nestabilities tomorrow, so be sure to let me know if I don't already have your order.

Thanks for checking in tonight. Have a great evening!
