I used grey CS for the card base and randomly stamped it with the paw prints stamp from the set using Versamark ink. I then rubbed Perfect Pearls all over the paw prints to give them that pearlescent shine. I stamped the dog image on white CS with StazOn jet black ink (this is a good ink to use for watercoloring because it won't bleed or run when it gets wet) and colored it with watercolor pencils and a Tombow blender pen.
I stamped the bandanna on a separate piece of paper and used Autumn Leaves stamp family/scroll by Rhonna Farrer to add the pattern to the bandanna. It's colored with watercolor pencils and I used a Sakura Stardust pen for some sparkle. I then cut the bandanna out and adhered it to the dog image. I trimmed the image and rounded the upper corners with a Creative Memories corner rounder. I adhered it to a piece of K&Co. Beyond Postmarks embossed paper, which also has the upper corners rounded. The whole thing was then adhered to the front of the card.
I tied a piece of American Crafts shimmery satin ribbon across the front and used a jump ring to attach a small tag made out of white CS and stamped with a sentiment from the "Gunther's Greetings" stamp set.
This is a fun stamp set, especially for dog lovers. I think my mom is really going to love this card.
Don't forget these and other new stamps exclusively available on 2RedBananas.com will be released on the website beginning March 2nd. Be sure to check out peeks of the other stamps on the 2RedBananas blog and the blogs of all of the 2RB design team members.

I made the card base from white CS with a block of Basic Grey patterned paper. that has been cut along the bottom with scalloped scissors, adhered on top, with ribbon wrapped around it near the bottom. I stamped the heart image onto red fun foam that was first heated with a heat gun, and cut it out. I stamped the "love" sentiment (from the set "Snowman Love") on the journaling lines and hand wrote the "2" and "U" with a glaze pen. I also used a white pen to add dots around the heart, and adhered some pearls on the swirls. The heart was adhered to the card front with glue dots.
The second photo shows the fun foam a little bit better.
