Today’s card (7-2)

Hi, friend-a-roos!

Happy Monday to you! I’m back with another stamped card to share with you…. just “fur” fun. A stamped dog card by Teri | terisplace.wordpress.com

Get it? Hehe! Couldn’t resist.

I just couldn’t help myself with making another dog card… just for the fun of it. I used a couple dog-themed stamp sets from Sunny Studio Stamps, Party Pups and Devoted Doggies, for this one. These stamp sets are great because they are cool to use on their own, but they are also great to use together.

I colored the three dogs independently of each other. Just a happy coincidence that I used shades of gray for each one. I fussy cut them out. (Yep, I’m old school.) And then I adhered them on the card. I thought about being greedy and putting each on dog on his card, but they looked so cute together so I ran with it.

The sentiment isn’t really curved. I just bent the stamp as I placed it on my block. After I stamped it on my card, I stamped a paw print on each side.  I thought it, well, just plain looked cute.

Anyhoo, that is what I have today. I’ll be back again later, gators. See you again soon. Thank you, as always, for stopping by!

Today’s card (6-22)

Hi, friends!

Back again with another stamped card to share with you. Today’s card is a birthday one.

A birthday card by Teri | terisplace.wordpress.com

My grandma’s birthday is this weekend so I whipped up this guy for her. The dog and icons are from the Party Pups stamp set (and coordinating dies) from Sunny Studio Stamps.

Lean in close, friends. A little secret about this card. I had planned to use a different dog in the set for my card. The intended dog? A fluffy Pomeranian that reminds me of my Marley and whose name I always sign with cards to my grandma. However my coloring looked awful so I went with this little dog instead as I had colored at the same time and he looked pretty good. Good thing my grandma won’t mind that it’s not a Pom. 😉  birthdaypuppykissescard2-teri

To give the little dog a little extra personality, I added a party hat and cupcake. What dog doesn’t look great in a party hat? Well, that is all dogs that will actually allow themselves to wear party hats. 😉 (For the record, Marley typically knocks off any hats I put on it, but I continue to try. Wink!)

The papers are just an assortment of scraps from my box of scraps. The colors aren’t exactly all the same, but  I think it’s OK sometimes to just give yourself permission to run with it and say, “I don’t need to be perfect today. My card does not need to be perfect today.”  I mean, there are no card police officers out there, at least last time I checked there were not.

Alright, that’s what I got for you. I’ll be back again later, gators. Thanks, as always, for stopping by.
