Happy Tails! Just Fur You!

Happy Tails - Just Fur You!

Inspire Create Stamping Challenge #035

This time, in the Inspire Create Challenge we have a sketch challenge! Are you a cat or a dog person?Or maybe both?  I have been itching to play with the Happy Tails stamp set and Punch Bundle and this was the perfect excuse!

Here is our sketch. I think I kept to it fairly well don't you?

The dog stamp is very versatile. His outline stamp is separate from his "patches" so you can stamp him without them. There are also spots too 😊. There are lots of fun dog themed images and great sentiments in the set. I think I'm going be using it a lot.

I love his patches.

His colour is nothing like our lovely black Labradoodle (who is asleep here on his bean bag 😀) Perhaps my next card using this set should feature him!

How I Made It

The card base is Whisper White. A4, scored at 10.5 cm and cut in half at 14.9 cm.
The layer is Crumb Cake. 10cm x 14.3 cm.
A layer of Basic Gray. 9.5 cm x 13.8 cm.

The top is Pear Pizazz. 9cm x 13.3 cm, stamped first in Early Espresso and then run through the Woodland Embossing Folder.

A length of Burlap and Pear Pizzazz Ribbon is attached to the Pear Pizazz Card before adhering down.

The Basic Grey Circle was cut out using the Stitched Shape Framelits and used as an anchoring point for the card elements.

The dog was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto Whisper White and punched out. 
His patches were stamped in Early Espresso - stamped off first onto scrap paper.
His kennel was stamped in Crumb Cake Ink onto Crumb Cake card and cut out and the little heart was also punched out using the dog punch builder punch.
