I have a confession to make.... I have five dogs! Yes! When I married my husband 21 years ago, I had three dogs, and he put a three dog limit on our household. Well, for most of those 21 years it stuck. But about a year ago my daughter started wanting her own dog. She was well aware of the 3 dog limit, but she finally asked me why Daddy had the authority to put a limit on how many dogs we could have, especially since he wasn't the one who took care of them. I thought that was a pretty good question and wondered why I hadn't questioned that in all of those years. Anyway I told her father this, and he agreed that she could get a puppy. He had requirements though. He said it had to be a small dog, and it had to have short hair. Of course she wanted a husky! haha! To make a long story short here, my brother's Australian Shepherd had 9 puppies, and she wanted one of those. Not small dogs, and probably not going to be short haired. Okay she picked hers out, and then I picked mine out! Oh no two! We named them, and went to see them everyday, then when the time came we brought them BOTH home! Two dogs that were going to be large! What is really weird though, is my husband was okay with it. I think he really liked them :) So we now have five dogs. The two new ones are Tesla ( my daughter's ) and Mabel is mine. They are such sweet dogs! I'm happy we got them both :) Here they are. Tesla is the black one and Mabel is the blonde one. They are 9 months old now. I think we can tell which one is the trouble maker??
Okay now onto my cards! I am thrilled to be guesting with Sunny Studio Stamps again this month! They have such cute products and the owner, my friend Mendi is such a pleasure to work with!
My two cards today are using the adorable new stamp set called Party Pups. Hence the story above about my own two party pups! :)
So for the background I used Distress inks, Broken China and Cracked Pistachio. I blended onto Bristol Board and sprinkled with water.
The cute images were all colored with Copic markers, cut out with the coordinating dies, and adhered with foam tape. I stamped the sentiment and the balloon strings with black ink.
My second card was made exactly the same as the first, although I used Wilted Violet Distress ink on my background. All of the cute little dogs were colored with Copic markers and cut out with the coordinating dies.
I also added some gloss white Nuvo Crystal drops to finish it up. I had a lot of fun coloring these cute little dogs!
I hope you have enjoyed my cards and my dog story today! Be sure to check out all of the wonderful products at Sunny Studio Stamps!
