Miss You Hot Dog Clean and Simple Card PP533

by Joanne James21. March 2021 09:00

Today it's Sunday and time for this week's new challenge over at The Paper Players! It's the turn of the fabulous Ann to host this week and she has a fun clean and simple challenge for us to work with:


I decided to open an as-yet unused stamp set for a fun clean and simple card - take a look:


Here's the low-down on today's card:

I thought this sweet dachshund would make the perfect focal point for my card today! I gave him a plaid coat using some retired Plaid Tidings DSP left over from last season and did some selective masking so that he could carry a resin-heart embellished note, having coloured my heart a peach colour using my Calypso Coral Blends:


Both my choice of canine and sentiment were chosen with the current challenge over at CASology, where the codeword is  'long' - a sausage dog and a 'miss you' sentiment seemed the perfect fit! I also used the Color Dare TicTacToe Challenge colours in the first column (peach, peacock, cinnamon). I added a little extra detail to the inside of my card too:


I have made a stack of these cards and decided to pop them in the post this week to friends that I haven't had the opportunity to catch up with for some time. Here's hoping they brighten someone's day!

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:

Joanne, I love this adorable dressed to perfection Doxie!  What a great idea to use the plaid DSP for his coat.  This is CAS perfection without a doubt. I am still smiling.

CAS and cute! Paper piecing his coat was genius. I like how the visual and verbal match up so well in this card. Very clever.

What a great card! The dog is adorable with his little plaid coat and the CAS design of your card is superb. I love the way the sentiment works with the image and the way you added a line version on the inside of the card. Vicky x

So well designed!!  I love this little dog and how you gave him a blanket!  And I never thought of coloring the resin hearts and I still have a few left to try it!  Great idea!  Have a great weekend!

First off I have a fondness for daushaunds. My aunt had one she named Authur. Us kids affectionately called him 'Arty the Log'. Anyway, your card is perfectly CAS and the use of DSP is an amazing use of resources. I love this card for so many reasons. Thank you so much for joining us at CMHCD.
