Puppy Love

Hello everyone, today I am sharing my cards using Kindred Stamps Puppy Love Stamp Set. This set is releasing this Friday, May 25th.

I have a guest on my blog that has yet to be introduced. Her name is Lady and she is our 10 month old Dachshund. Obviously she had to be a part of this post, she IS a PUPPY!

I had a challenging time coloring these pups. I have a very limited amount of Copic markers since I am still starting out. The dogs in this set didn’t turn out quite like I had imagined, but I still love them.  I paired them with bright patterned paper, then layered it over two solid layers that matched the flowers.

I am still second guessing my decision to color the pasta a tan color and not red…. but it looks OK. Also, for the dog on the left, his ink bled on his poor little snout, but he’s a stray and I think it works to make him look a bit ‘grungy’. I popped the sentiment (my favorite, since Evan and I do share everything!) with some Stampin’ Up dimensionals, which are pretty much my favorite tool!

I think that Lady did an EXCELLENT job as a model, what do you guys think?

For my next card, I cut the base out on my cameo. I have been trying to step out of my box a little bit and this is a very different style than you’ve seen from me so far.

I wanted it to look simple and not overwhelming with the base I had cut out so I decided not to color them, but added ‘Glitter Kiss’ by Cosmic Shimmer to my pups. This stuff is super fun, and I’m still learning to use it. I used white ribbon to tie the sides together.

On the inside, I chose to use this adorable sentiment, because isn’t that what love is all about?

I hope you enjoy my cards! Make sure you check out my teammates’ blogs below and comment on each blog to enter for the chance to win store credit!

  1. I really like how the puppy images turned out! And I think the tan for the pasta is perfect. If you’d colored it completely red, it wouldn’t be realistic since no noodle is ever completely covered in sauce. Don’t second guess yourself so much!

  2. I think out of all the sets this is my highest priority to get. I own a Cavalier and the one stamp would be PERFECT.
