Gingham Gala Happy Tails Spotted Dog Cards

Are you a dog person?  If so, I know you'll love today's projects as much as I do!  The Happy Tails stamp set features a basic dog shape, as well as a couple of "spotted" images for a variety of dog looks!  I love all of the little dog-themed elements and sentiments, too!


The Happy Tails Bundle also includes the coordinating Dog Builder Punch.  Remember, all of the current bundles will be retiring on June 3, so even though these items are carrying over, the 10% discount will be gone!

Background Basics—This card begins with a 4-1/4" x 11" vertically-folded card base in Basic Black.  I adhered a 4" x 5-1/4" Lemon Lime Twist piece of Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper.  I'm trying to get the most out of my Gingham Gala DSP before it's gone on June 3!  

Next, I stamped the bone and paw print Happy Tails images in Lemon Lime Twist ink randomly over a 4" x 1-1/2" piece of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock.  It's adhered to the card front with SNAIL. I tied some retiring Lemon Lime Twist Ombré Ribbon around the card front and tied it into a double-knot.

Handsome Dog—I stamped the Happy Tails dog image in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Whisper White scrap cardstock.  Next, I stamped the spots image in Soft Suede over the top of the dog and punched it out with the Dog Builder Punch.  

Sweet Sentiment—I cut a Whisper White oval with the Layering Ovals dies, then stamped the sentiment on the side.  I positioned the dog shape over the oval to know where to stamp the sentiment.  Next, I adhered the oval to a black scalloped oval die-cut and popped them up with Dimensionals onto the card front.  I popped the dog up onto the oval.

Finishing Touches—I finished by punching out a Melon Mambo heart with the Dog Builder Punch and popping that up with Dimensionals, as well.  Finally, I added a couple Lemon Lime Twist accents from the Gingham Gala Sequins pack.

Two Cool—The second card begins with a vertically-folded Thick Whisper White card base.

Background Basics—I followed the same recipe as the first card, adhering Daffodil Delight Gingham Gala DSP to the card base this time.  The Daffodil Delight strip is stamped with the bone and paw print in Daffodil Delight, as well.  I tied on some coordinating and retiring Daffodil Delight Double-Stitched Ribbon to match.

Dapper Dog—I changed the Happy Tails sentiment and the Daffodil Delight scalloped oval, but everything else is the same on the focal point.  I finished up with a couple Daffodil Delight Gingham Gala sequins.  So sweet!
