Stampin' Up! Pampered Pets for the Happy Inkin' Krew

Welcome to the Happy Inkin' Thursday blog hop. You're in for a treat if you have never visited before. It's a weekly challenge and this week we have a color challenge.

I used the Pampered Pets Stamp Set for my card and chose red as my third color.

My card base is Whisper White cardstock (which has been replaced by Basic White due to the supplier closing). I cut a panel of Real Red cardstock and  a piece of Playful Pets DSP. I adhered them together with liquid glue and ran a 6 1/2" piece of Real Red Double-Stitched Satin Ribbon around it and adhered the card front to the card base.

Next I stamped the dog image on a scrap of white and cut it out with the Pets Dies. I colored his collar with my Real Red Stampin' Write Marker. I colored the pup with my Light and Dark Black Stampin' Blends. I adhered him to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals. I found a black heart from the Dog Builder Punch laying on my desk so I stuck it on the ribbon with a glue dot. Why not?

The above photo was taken in the Light Box my son ordered for me, which was a total surprise!

For the inside I cut a piece of Real Red cardstock, a piece of Basic Black cardstock and a piece of Whisper White (Basic White) for my sentiments. I used the Best Year Stamp Set for the sentiments and the heart stamp from Pampered Pets. I colored the hearts with my Light and Dark Real Red Stampin' Blends. All measurements are listed at the end of the post.
