Stamping With Friends March Blog Hop National Pet Day

This is my first month hopping with the Stamping With Friends Blog Hop and I am so happy to be a part of their March Blog Hop. Today we are sharing projects to celebrate a National Day in March or April to help inspire you.
The National Day I chose to showcase is National Pet Day which is on April 11th. Our family has a dog and three cats, so we are definitely pet lovers and the retiring Playful Pets Suite (item #154136) is perfect for creating cards with this theme. I decided to create a card design with one of the dogs in this suite to create a fun card that would work for a variety of occasions. I love the vibrant Real Red, Basic Black and Basic White color combination that I chose from the colors in the Playful Pets Designer Series Paper (item #152489).

This clean and simple card design is easy to create and would work well with your choice of dog image from the Playful Pets Designer Series Paper. I chose this sweet puppy because there is a die in the Pets Dies that die cuts this particular image so that I didn't have to worry about fussy cutting. The bowl was stamped onto Basic White cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and I colored the image with the Real Red Stampin' Blends Combo Pack. I fussy cut the bowl with my Paper Snips and attached both the dog image and the bowl to the Basic White square with Stampin' Dimensionals to pop them up. For the sentiment label, I trimmed off one end of the Basic Black label and heat embossed the sentiment with White embossing powder. To step up the design, I added one of the Playful Pets trinkets (the bone) and tied a bow with the Black and White Bakers Twine from the Playful Pets Trim Combo Pack. I attached the bone to the sentiment label with a Mini Glue Dot. The bright, bold colors make this card perfect for all ages and is sure to brighten someone's day.
