Stampin’ Up Happy Tails Pet Sympathy Card

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Anyone do anything fun?  I worked, but not my normal job.  I got to work at the Hungry Hound Dog Bakery we have here in town.  It’s so much fun working there, the puppies come in to visit and spend their money on treats and toys.  We bake all our own treats on the premises and they are delicious, I’ve tried quite a few.  They are all made with human edible products that are animal safe.

My card for today is NOT one I like to make.  My daughter’s best friend’s dog died last week.  It was a sudden thing, she wasn’t even sick and so very sad.  Her dog was the only dog my dog would tolerate staying in the same room with.  My dog is petrified of other dogs since she was attached when by one when she was a little puppy.  She doesn’t mind them through a fence, that she likes.  We are all going to miss JJ tremendously.   Here’s my card for today.

My card played along with CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #334.  Here is their sketch.

My colors were inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #321.  Here are their colors.  Aren’t they gorgeous together.

I started by adhering a panel of the Come To Gather Designer Series Paper to a Pretty Peacock mat using Snail.  I adhered the card front to a Soft Suede card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the dog image from the Happy Tails Photopolymer Stamp Set on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock in Soft Suede Ink and colored her in using my Light Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Marker.  I punched the dog out using my Dog Builder Punch.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the outline image of the dog house from the Happy Tails stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink.  I stamped the 2nd step of the dog house from the Happy Tails stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink, stamping off once, on top of the 1st one.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pretty Peacock mat using Snail.  I adhered the punched out dog to the Whisper White panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I colored the heart, which punched out when I punched the dog out, with my Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends Marker and adhered it to the dog using a Glue Dog.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Tails stamp set on a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock in Cherry Cobbler Ink.  I stamped the pawprints from the Happy Tails stamp set on either side of the sentiment in Soft Suede Ink.  I adhered the sentiment strip to a Pretty Peacock mat using Snail and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from Happy Tails stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink in the center of a Whisper Whist panel.  I stamped the paw print image from the Happy Tails stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the bottom left of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pretty Peacock mat using Snail and then to the inside of my Soft Suede card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the dog image from the Happy Tails stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the front of the envelope and colored it in the same as I did for the card.  I stamped the paw print image from the Happy Tails stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the envelope front too.  I adhered a panel of Come To Gather DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  Happy Stamping!!
