I love my animals and the Animal Talk stamp set is one of my favorites.  I needed a “DOG” or animal card for a class last month and came up with this one that uses the new Hardwood stamp set (LOVE IT!!) and the Animal Talk stamp set.  I just changed my profile picture here on my blog – you can see it over on the right-hand side bar.  If you get this update by email – click on the title of the post to go to my blog and see the picture.  It is one of my favorites because I feel like it is so me.  Sitting outside with a bunch of dogs!  While only 2 of the dogs are actually mine.  The other two hung around our cabin the whole time we were there and joined us like they were part of the family.  This was several years ago but its still one of my favorite photos.


Here are the details of the card:

  • Crumb Cake card base
  • Crumb Cake layer stamped with the Hardwood Stamp – stamped in Crumb Cake ink
  • The words are stamped in Chocolate Chip ink
  • Tie a piece of the Chevron Natural Ribbon around the layer – actually you fold it around the card stock and then use a piece of Linen Thread to tie it together on the edge.
  • Cut a piece of Whisper White card stock with the Apothecary framelit and stamp the dog image in Chocolate Chip ink on it – cut the right side off straight against the edge of the card.  I actually stamp first and then cut the shape with my Big Shot – then put it on the card and cut off the extra on the side.
  • I colored in the dogs spots with my Crumb Cake stampin’ write marker.
