Stampin' Up! Happy Tails Sympathy

Can it really be the middle of the week already? Almost the middle of the month? Oi! I hope yours is going smoothly with no bumps, humps or lumps. It's not going that way for my niece who just lost one of her beloved dogs. It was cause to dust off the Happy Tails Stamp Set.

My inspiration for the design came from the SSC224 Tag You're It Challenge.



I used Crumb Cake for my card base. I cut a piece of Whisper White and matted a piece of retired Tranquil Textures DSP to it. 

I cut a tag out of Whisper White using the Stitched Rectangle Dies. On a scrap of Whisper White, I stamped the pup in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it with my Light and Dark Daffodil Delight Blends. I used the Color Lifter to create some pale spots. I used the paw and heart stamp to create a heart shape. The ink I used was Real Red and Early Espresso. The sentiment is stamped in Early Espresso as well.

The pup was punched with the Dog Builder Punch and adhered with Dimensionals. I punched the hole with my Detailed Trio Punch and made the tag tie with Braided Linen Trim.

For the inside, I stamped another sentiment from the set using Crumb Cake. I left a lot of white space so I could write a note.


I am also entering my card in these challenges today:
