A Set of Cards with the Same Design and a Dog Card

Okay so lots of photos because as I started making this card
then I wanted to try in a few different colours. I didnt get out lots
of ink pads. I used my Kaleidacolor Raised Rainbow Dye Inkpads.
They were the first inkpads I purchased and they are still going strong. I had
to throw one away because I forgot to separate the colours when finished
using them. The next time I got it out which was a long time later the colours had
all merged to become mud. Not very appealing. Each inked has 5 colors or 5 of one
color but in a range from light to dark.
My greens don't show as much difference now, the really light is a bit
darker but still a nice range. You push a lever and they all join up.

You need to remember to keep an eye on the stamps because you
can contaminate across the colours if not careful. Look at the fantastic colours
here going from orange/pink/purple/blue/green. Bright and lovely.

Here the colours start as very light orange through to red.
I used a part of a stamp that goes with a Sparkle & Shine set
which is a magic wand or sprinkler but I haven't added the
little circles of sparkles or the wands.

This was just what I wanted, so easy and clean (yes I stuffed up a few times
not stamping cleanly or pressing too hard and getting smudge areas) and settled on
the four cleanest. I added little sparkle stars from the set here and there to balance
things out and then added die cuts and stamped sentiment. Stayed with the die cut
for 'sparkle' as I wasn't sure what I wanted to add....yet.

This next card I had so much fun doing. Another of Mo's Digital Sets,
I decided to bring all of the images onto one page and set them up in a
cycle with the ball in the middle to balance the dogs.

They are so cute and I coloured them with Copics, very easy as they we reduced in
size to fit on the card.  A lot of manipulating as they are jpg's which means they
tend to cover each other and leave blank spots if too close together as they don't
have blank backgrounds. 

I thought of lots of sentiments but was limited by what would fit neatly and
didnt want to go back to the computer. Then I saw the Celebrate stamp set
from Stamplorations. the 'Celebrate was too big os I used a die cut one but the words 
to go with it were just what I wanted 'The little things'.

I like it, it makes me smile, I'm happy.

Oh my friend!!! all of this cards are beautiful but the one with the doggies is just over the top adorable and cute. I was looking for some challenges to enter and I saw your card on the "Cards und More" challenge and I immediately jumped over here to tell you how much I love this set of cards.
I wish I knew how to do the digis, manipulating the image sizes, etc. it gives you so much freedom for creating your cards.
Awesome set, my dear, thank you for sharing.

Sentiment says it all for your 'sparkler' cards: AMAZING! The variations in color: such fun! And speaking of fun...your dogs are precisely that! Love the 'words' they're paired with, especially, the 'bouncing' response to 'dinner'! Mega watt smiles in seeing this!
