Day Three Sneak Peeks - Dog Days

I only have one set to preview for you today, but it's such a cute one!! Dog Days is a set of 18 doggy sentiments and images that will be released by Clear Dollar Stamps in just a couple of days. October 1st to be exact! This set was so full of potential that I honestly didn't know what to use first. For my first card, I decided to follow an inspiration challenge that Laurie, our DT leader, had given us. It was a pair of yellow shoes with black polka dots. It reminded me of a spotted bumble bee! With that in mind, here's my card... How did I do??? LOL!!

CS AND PAPERS: Whisper White, Black, Summer Sun
INK: Memento Tuxedo Black, Fresh Snow, Summer Sun
MARKERS (if any): none
ACCESSORIES AND EMBELLISHMENTS: 1 1/4" circle punch, sponge, zigzag scissors

Dog Days is an adorable set for anyone who's a dog lover at heart... like my daughter! I made her this little bookmark and post-it note holder for her desk and she loves it! The bookmark is a "scrapling" - the little piece left over when you cut a "normal" card base down to a 4.25" square. I simply colored little doggy with prismacolor pencils & oms, cut him out and attached him. I didn't use dimensionals, because I didn't think they'd stand up very well being squished in a book. ;-) I used a Basic Grey magnet inside, so it will clip to the page.

The little post-it note holder is a variation of this tutorial. I didn't use the chipboard, just cardstock for the covers. Here's a picture of the inside. I just love the extra strength and the classy look that the inside mat gives!

CS AND PAPERS: Whisper White, Pumpkin, Rust, K&Co dp
INK: Memento Tuxedo Black, Pumpkin, Teal
MARKERS (if any):
ACCESSORIES AND EMBELLISHMENTS: 1 3/8" circle punch, scallop circle punch, white gel pen, brown grosgrain ribbon, staple, basic grey magnets (for bookmark), dimensionals, post it notes
COLORING MEDIUM (if any): prismacolors & OMS
