With Chloe's birthday just passed, I have had dogs on my mind. This stamp set is so much fun. It includes 4 dog images, 5 great sentiments and several other icons to use with these images. I had a lot of fun making these cards so let me share them with you. Art Impressions clear stamp set, Doggy Kisses
For my first card I stamped the dog with cone then masked it (using masking paper) so I could create a colorful background using Distress Oxide inks. Once I got the colors the way I wanted them, I spritzed the background with water to create the spots you see. Next I removed the mask and colored the dog using Copic markers. I stamped the dog paws using the same colors used on the background and "Ouch" with Versafine Black ink. I die cut the focal panel with Memory Box Cross Stitch Rectangles. I love the sentiment!

My sister used to call her dog "Licky Dog" because she gave so many kisses. This pup would definitely qualify as a Licky Dog and the sentiment says it all!

Love the yellow and gray color combination. Here I am presenting the outside and inside of the card.

This dachshund's long body serves as the perfect foil to the sentiment. I made a simple background using the dog paw in the set.

Cottage Cutz Get Well Dies
For even more humorous get well cards I turned to the new Cottage Cutz dies: Chicken Soup and Nurse Puppy.
To create this card, I cut the die from different colors of cardstock then glued everything together. I did darken the words "chicken noodle soup" to make them stand out more.

The Nurse Puppy is very detailed with each icon (bandaid, stethoscope, thermometer, nurse's hat, ice bag, syringe, etc) having multiple parts to make them look realistic

I created the next card by cutting a center step card from a half piece of cardstock (black).
