Hey Crafty Friends welcome back. I have some fun for you today with Whimsy Stamps Caution Dog Slobber.
I was excited to be asked to guest design for Whimsy Stamps this month and while searching through their fabulous website, it was quite hard to choose which stamps I wanted to work with because they are all so fabulous…….STOP – WAIT – Drooling dogs – ok, I can relate! haha, I am always covered in drool and dog hair from Oscar and Lucy snuggling with me, so this was perfect.
Ok, He isn’t a Corgi, but isn’t he the sweetest….LOVE his round fat tummy, big long slobbery tongue and his cold pink nose.
As I was snooping further through the site for items to accompany this stamp set, I came upon coordinating dies (of course), some fun Zig Zag Rectangles dies I could use to create a fun border, and HOLD THE PRESSES – Whimsy Stamps Designer Paper – Pet Woof…….this designer paper is PERFECT for dog cards
While I love making backgrounds, sometimes I don’t have time, or my mojo is busy elsewhere, haha, so designer paper is the perfect alternative and this pack has you covered 6 ways to Friday – no kidding. There are also two of each double sided design so if you are like me, once you design a card, you like to make it a couple of times – you can.
Card #1 Whimsy Stamps Caution Dog Slobber
For the first card, I stamped the image onto Neenah Solar white 80# card and colored the image with my copics. I trimmed it as tight as I could and added a slim mat.
Then I cut my designer paper down to 4 x 5-1/4 to fit on my card front before attaching the art piece with foam tape just to pop it up a bit.
Clean and Simple and quick, but what a fun card right?
Card #2 Whimsy Stamps Caution Dog Slobber
For the second card I flipped the orientation to landscape and die cut my card front panel. I stamped colored and cut out the adorable little doggy and laid him on the panel in my Misti so I knew where to stamp the sentiment and dog bones.
I chose another piece of the designer paper and then used those colors to coordinate my card base and mat.
Finally, I popped the doggy up with Foam Tape to add just a bit of Dimension.
This stamp set also has a couple of stamps that are perfect for the back of envelopes and I know my dog loving friends are going to adore these cards.
A big Thanks to Whimsy Stamps for the design invite. I had fun and hope to do it again soon. Visit their site and pick out your favorite stamps, they truly have something for everyone.
