Stampin’ Up Happy Tails Triple Time Technique

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was your weekend?  Hope you were able to do something fun.

For today’s card I did the Triple Time Technique for you and used the new Stampin’ Up Happy Tails Bundle.  Did you know that when you purchase the bundle, Happy Tails stamp set and Dog Builder Punch, you get 10% off.  I love being able to save money any time I can. I just love this dog in the set, you can make many different kinds with it. I decided to make a Dalmatian for today. Take a look.

All the measurements for the layers are listed below.  I started with a small piece of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the dog from the Happy Tails stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on it.  I stamped the spots on top of the dog in Tuxedo Black Ink also.  I punched the dog out using the Dog Builder Punch and set it aside.

I then layered the 3 pieces of Whisper White cardstock, using the tiniest spot of Snail just to hold them in place while I was stamping.  I first stamped the sentiment from the Happy Tails stamp set on the top panel in Tuxedo Black Ink.  I then stamped the dog house from the same stamp set in Soft Suede Ink to the right of the sentiment stamping partially on the second layer, stamping off once.  I stamped the second part of the dog house on top of the first in Soft Suede Ink.  I randomly stamped the paw prints from the same stamp set all around in Tuxedo Black Ink.  Again, I randomly stamped the dog bones in Crumb Cake Ink all around the card front.  I finished the stamping with the Real Red hearts randomly stamped on the 3 layers.

I took the 3 layers apart and matted the top two layers on Basic Black cardstock using Snail.  The largest layer I adhered to a Basic Black card base using Snail.  I lined up each layer, matching the dog house,  paw prints, bones and hearts and adhered them using Snail.

Once all the layers were lined up and adhered together I added the punched dog to the top panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the paw prints from the Happy Tails stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink along the bottom of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthdays Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Basic Black card base using Snail.

To complete my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the dog from the Happy Tails stamp set on the front of the envelope.  I covered the envelope flap with the Dalmatian spots.

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