Stampin’ Up! Happy Tails for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  Happy May!!  Not sure where March and April went, but it’s May, which to me, means the warm weather should be here.  Hopefully it will get here soon.   How was everyone’s week?  The weekend is here again and we still can’t go out to do anything.  Parks are still closed along with a lot of other things.  I’ll be working on Sunday and hopefully doing a lot of card making tomorrow.

I have a card for you today that I don’t like to make, I don’t think any of us do.  One of my co-workers and friend lost her best fur friend this week.  Poor thing made it through his major surgery, when he was waking up went into cardiac arrest.  It was a real shock to her and her family.  I used the retiring stamp set for her card.  Here’s my card for today.

I started with a 4 1/4″ X 11″ Crumb Cake card base scored at 5 1/2″.  I made a little mark at 4 1/4″ on the top of the card front and scored from that mark down to the bottom  front corner.  I made 1/4″ score lines on the side and bottom of the triangle piece that folds down.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the outline dog image from the Stampin’ Up! Happy Tails Photopolymer Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink.  I stamped the spot image from the Happy Tails stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink, stamping off once, on top of the outline image. I stamped the collar image from the Happy Tails stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I punched the dog out using my Dog Builder Punch.  The Dog Builder Punch, punches out a heart when you punch out the dog.  I colored the heart using my Dark Real Red Stampin’ Blends Marker and adhered it to the collar using a Glue Dot.  On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the outline of the dog house image from the Happy Tails stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink.  I stamped the fill dog house image from the Happy Tails stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink, stamping off once, on top of the outline.  I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Tails stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the top right corner of the panel. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Night of Navy mat using Snail.

I adhered the matted panel to the card front lining up the corners and centering it with the scored lines using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, only on the bottom left corner.  I adhered the punched out dog to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the dog bone image from the Happy Tails stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on a scrap of Crumb Cake cardstock and fussy cut it using my Paper Snips.  I adhered a small panel of Real Red Regals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the left side of the card front using Snail.  I added the fussy cut bone using a Glue Dot.

You can see from the inside how I folded the card front panel down.  I adhered a panel of Real Red Regals 6 X 6 DSP to the inside back panel using Snail.  I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Tails stamp set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the heart image from the Happy Tails stamp set in Real Red Ink in the 4 corners.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Night of Navy mat using Snail. I adhered the matted panel to the inside of the Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, making sure it’s behind the card front panel.  I stamped the paw print image from the Happy Tails stamp set in Early Espresso Ink where you can see it when the card is closed.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the dog image from the Happy Tails stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the bottom front of the envelope.  I stamped the spot image from the Happy Tails stamp set on the dog in Crumb Cake Ink, stamping off once.  I stamped the collar image from the Happy Tails stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the dog image.  I stamped the heart outline from the Happy Tails stamp set in Real Red Ink on the collar.  I stamped the pawprint image from the Happy Tails stamp set in Early Espresso Ink around the left side of the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of Real Red Regals 6 X 6 DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you liked my fun fold and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

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!!
