Stampin’ Up! Hot Dog Bone-Jour

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers. We made it halfway through the week already and we’re on our way to the weekend. Hope you are all having a productive week.

I played with another new set from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog for today’s card. We have a new neighbor moving onto our block and she just happens to have a dachshund. I’m also really hoping she likes crafting, specifically making cards. I used the Stampin’ Up! Hot Dog Photopolymer Stamp Set for my card. Here’s my card that I had so much fun creating.

My design is from Fab Friday Challenge #205.

I started by embossing a Cinnamon Cider card front using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered a panel of the 2020-2022 In-Color 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the card front using Stampin Seal.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sitting dachshund from the Hot Dog stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it in using my Cinnamon Cider and Just Jade Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the sentiment from the Hot Dog stamp set on the top of the panel in Cinnamon Cider Ink. I used the new Stitched With Whimsy Dies to get the stitching around the panel.

On a scrap piece of Basic White cardstock I stamped the small butterfly image from the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Gala Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the butterfly fill image in Bumblebee Ink. I punched the butterfly out using the Butterfly Duet Punch and adhered it to the Basic White panel using a Glue Dot. I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the card front to a Cinnamon Cider card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the card front.

I had just as much fun creating the inside as I did the outside. I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Well Said Cling Stamp Set towards the top of a Basic White panel. On the bottom I stamped the 2 dachshunds from the Hot Dog stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them in using my Cinnamon Cider Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the sentiment bubbles from the Hot Dog stamp set by each dog in Just Jade Ink. I used the Stitched With Whimsy Dies again to add the stitching around the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Just Jade mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Cinnamon Cider card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the sitting dachshund from the Hot Dog stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it in using my Cinnamon Cider and Just Jade Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the 2020 -2022 In-Color DSP to the envelope flap.
