Today I have a simple card design that’s easy to make and oh so cute! I love the new Happy Tails Bundle that I used on these cards.
It’s the cutest dog stamp set, and it comes with a dog punch. (Don’t you love punches??) And that’s one of the things that makes these cards so EASY!!
This card is simple because all you need to create it is the Happy Tails Bundle and a few colors of card stock and ink. You could actually use only one ink color! Stamp the cute little dog on a piece of Whisper White card stock (I used Crumb Cake ink). Then using Blueberry Bushel ink, stamp the collar on his neck. You could even leave this step out to make the card even easier. Punch the dog out with the coordinating punch, which also just happens to punch a heart!
Starting with an 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ Whisper White card base (scored at 4-14″), stamp a 2-1/2″ x 4-1/2″ piece of Crumb Cake card stock with the sentiment using Early Espresso ink. Adhere this piece on the left front of the card base as shown, using Tombow Multipurpose Glue. Adhere a 3″ x 2″ piece of colored card stock (here I used Melon Mambo for one card and Blueberry Bushel for the other) using Stampin’ Dimensionals, overlapping the Crumb Cake piece as shown . Adhere the punched dog with Stampin’ Dimensionals, as well as the little heart. The heart can also be glued on with a dot of glue. And you are done! Quick and easy!
And because this post is about dogs, I have to show you a few pictures of my sweet girl, Elie. She’s a 5 year old Yorkshire Terrier and to say she is loved is a big understatement! She likes to go with me when I get my nails done, and in the one photo below she’s leaning up on the towel wanting to have her nails painted – if we can find them!!! (heart, heart)
Do you have a dog? I’d love to hear about your animals!! Please leave me a comment 🙂
This light subtle card was created with the color palette from this week’s Global Design Project Challenge. You can see the pretty colors below.
The background of this card was watercolored with the three colors layered from bottom to top. They just give a soft blended background for the layered card stock pieces.
This is the first time I’ve used the Beauty Abounds Bundle and it is SO pretty! The butterfly dies are truly beautiful. For this card I used one of the butterflies and the stem die (I’m not really sure what to call this die, what would you call it?). Anyway, they gorgeous? And I had to sneak in a heart frame from the Be Mine Heart Framelits 🙂 Did you have a chance to see my video about the Be Mine Framelits? I’ll post it below in case you didn’t see it.
You can use these hearts anywhere!! Here I’ve used a Whisper White heart frame behind the butterfly. I love the way the bright white looks against the watercolored background 🙂
Peggy’s Pointer: Heat emboss your sentiment on a strip of vellum. This allows the beauty of the card to show through and blends easily with your color theme!

On yesterday’s post I shared a card using the Incredible Like You stamp set from the new 2019 Occasions Catalog. The card featured climbing flowering vines along each side of the card (CLICK HERE to see the original post and products used). The video above will show you how to create the climbing vines!
I’ve also created a PDF Tutorial (that you can download and print if you like) with specific measurements and instructions for creating this card.
I’m so glad WE are friends through this blog! I love hearing from each one of you as you leave your comments. And this sentiment from the Incredible Like You stamp set really expresses my feelings for YOU!
This stamp set is so much fun! It has unlimited potential and I’ve barely scratched the surface of how it can be used. For today’s card I used the little stem stamp and the tiny flower stamp to create a pretty vine on each side of the card!
The sentiment was heat embossed on vellum using Gorgeous Grape ink. Underneath the sentiment is some pretty Highland Heather Organdy Ribbon which is currently FREE during Sale-a-Bration. Yippee!
This stamp set coordinates with the Incredible Like You Project Kit which contains all the supplies you need to create 16 beautiful all-occasion cards. Here’s a fun video about this great project kit!
