Hi, it’s Phoenix. Today I am showing you my “Pawsome Pug” card. I was inspired by the new Pawsome Pets Sparkle Blend and the Bah Hum-Pug stamp set from Clearly Besotted. I really like the animal Fimo pieces in the Pawsome Pets Sparkle Blend. I also used some of the Citrine and Apple for Teacher Sparkle Blend.
First, I cut out the cream colored mat for the card. Then, I stamped the pug and colored and cut him out. I colored the pug with Tombow Dual Brush Markers. I knew before I started making the card that I wanted to have the sequins radiate out from the star on the pug, so I had to complete him first.
Next I attached the pug to the mat. After that, I started putting on sequins from the Pawsome Pets Sparkle Blend using On Point Glue. I started by putting on the yellows from Pawsome Pets and Citrine, and then worked my way out to the purples, then the blues. You can see a lot of the Fimo animal heads and paws in the picture above.
After I finished gluing on the sequins, I thought that the card needed more at the top, so I stamped on the sentiment from the Bah Hum-Pug stamp set and glued on a few more sequins in paw shapes around the sentiment. It took a long time to glue all the sequins on, but I really enjoyed making it.
Finally, I glued the mat on to the white card base. I’m really happy with how the colors radiate out from the pug. And, I like the variations of shapes and colors in the Sparkle Blends.

Phoenix, you did such a great job! The pug stamp has so much personality! I love the effect that you have achieved using the sparkle mix. There is so much texture, colors and sparkle in this card. It really is wonderful!
