I Love You - Hot Dog - #TGIFC313 Inspiration Challenge

Hello and welcome to back to my blog. I created this clean and simple card for the #TGIFC313 Technique Challenge this week. The challenge this week is all about 'Cats and Dogs'.

If you follow my blog, you would know I have a 6 year old Basset Hound and she is a very loved member of our family! I always colour my 'hot dogs' with her in mind as this stamp set fits her perfectly.

I used the Hot Dog stamp set and combined it with some very easy blending using the Stampin' Up!® blending brushes. 

Here's my girl!

And another photo of her goofing around... my children insisted I add these photos in for this card! ☺️☺️


- Use a piece of Basic White card A4 cut in half lengthwise and folded.

- Layer a piece of Bermuda Bay card at an angle and attach to the base using Liquid Glue.

- Cut a smaller piece of Basic White, and blend Coastal Cabana and Granny Apple Green onto the card using Blending Brushes. Once happy with the blending, attach at an angle to the card base using Liquid Glue. Stamp some hearts from the Hot Dog Stamp set using Coastal Cabana ink onto the card.

- Stamp the sentiment and dog from the Hot Dog stamp set onto another piece of Basic White card with Tuxedo Black ink.

- Fussy cut the dog, and colour with Bronze Stampin' Blends and attach to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals. 

- Cut the sentiment in half to only use the 'I Love You' portion of the sentiment. Layer it onto a strip of Bermuda Bay with Liquid Glue and then attach to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals. 

- Add some Loose Flower Flourishes to the card (from the upcoming new Stampin' Up!® 2021-2022 Annual Catalogue) and attach them using Mini Glue Dots.

  1. Hello! I think you're creation for the TGIF challenge was super cute! It's funny how our dogs inspire us. I created a card using the Pampered Pets that influenced by our little mini schnauzer. LOL.

    1. Hi Jessica, thank you for your comment. My brother-in-law has a miniature Schnauzer as well, they are so cute as was your card!! This stamp set always makes me think of my dog.. I love the expressions on the dogs faces ☺️☺️❤️🙏🏼
