Stampin' Up! Happy Tails

Happy Tuesday and Happy Tails for you today, my peeps.

This stamp set is the star for this week over at What Will You Stamp WWYS #217.

For once I'm not using the set as a pet sympathy nor a birthday card. My penpals in Maine have an ill dog who has been in and out of the vets. They are still trying to figure out what is making Lefti so sick. I am sending the family this card for encouragement. 

I don't usually make CAS cards but I am trying to play in all the challenges at Alphabet Challenge Blog. I've entered cards for "A" and "B" so I can't miss out on "C"! So, clean and simple it is...

My card base is Whisper White 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". I began by stamping "Lefti" with Early Espresso and colored him in with Bronze and Ivory Blends. His collar is stamped in Smoky Slate and the heart is stamped in Real Red. I added some lines with my Early Espresso Stampin' Write Marker to give his tail some motion.

Then I punched "Lefti" out of Gina K's masking sheets using my Dog Builder Punch. I stuck it on the card front and sponged the sky and grass while holding down a die from the Layering Circles Framelits. I used Balmy Blue and Pear Pizzazz ink pads. The sentiment is stamped in Early Espresso.

The inside is CAS as well and I will be writing a little note to the kiddos and their parents. 

I surely hope this pup will be home by the time they receive their card. Here's what Lefti looked like when they first got him. They have fattened him up!

Thank you for stopping by and I hope I'll see you tomorrow.


  1. Oh, you surely nailed our challenge! I really love how Leftie turned out. I can't believe that you don't normally do CAS cards because this one is perfect. Thank you for playing with us at the Alphabet Challenge and hope you can join us again soon.

    1. Thank you so much, Debbie. I really like to do layering but not necessarily collages. I'll be back for "D"!

  2. Too cute! Love your design! Hope that Leftie is feeling better soon! :)

  3. A cute card. Thank you for joining us at the Alphabet Challenge. Sian (DT).

  4. Absolutely loved your sponged background for your card! Thanks so much for playing along with us this week at WWYS Challenge Blog!
