Cows, and Dogs, and Gift Sets...Oh My!

I decided to create a gift set for each of my friend's two daughters as they recently celebrated birthdays. I used the Cow Background stamp from the Cookie Crumbs presented by CC Designs and Stampin' Up! markers to create the colorful cow pattern. I really like the look of the two layered SU ribbons together....I think I might just use layered ribbons on more of my cards! There is quite a bit of bling courtesy of Stickles glitter glue on the main Annabelle image (also from the Cookie Crumbs line), and although it's difficult to see the cupcake image is placed on a dimensional adhesive. Did you notice Annabelle's dress is made of patterned paper? This was my first attempt at paper piecing, and I've decided that this technique adds a lot!

The second gift set was created for one of the daughters who has an aversion to the color pink. I know...gasp...could it be possible? While I love the color pink, I wanted to give her something in colors she could appreciate. For this gift set, I chose some cutie pie canines from Stampin Bella and paired them with a Papertrey sentiment.

Have a good one!
