Paws for thought!

Hello Everyone and welcome back to my blog!

Today I am sharing with you three new cards I created using the stamps from the Making Cards & Papercraft Magazine February 2020 digital edition.

The stamp set is called “Paws for thought” and the dogs are so cute!

I thought I would create some CAS and more masculine cards that would be perfect for the men in our lives for Valentine’s day.


  • I printed the stamps on Neenah solar white card stock and fussy cut the images and sentiments.
  • I  first used alcohol markers on the images, to create the texture on their fur I used Copic colorless blending solution and a rag, (a tip I learned on the Coloring challenge roadtrip – online edition by Kathy Racoosin).
  • After that with the help of Coloring pencils I added more texture and accents.
  • I also added some white accents with a white gel pen.
  • I used three white card bases and on each one I adhere some torn pattern paper to anchor my critters.
  • I adhered the critters on top of the pattern papers with foam tape.
  • For the sentiments I used black card stock to mat them and adhered them on the cards.




I had so much fun creating these cards and I hope you like them!
I think these stamps are super cute and there is a bunch more included in the stamp set that one can play with.
Leave me a comment on which card is your favorite.

  1. I love them! What a super set! I feel really inspired to make something with those stamps now. The little brown pug is my fav but I also think the textures are great on the other doggies too! ❤
