Sorrowful Pup

Today I am showcasing the Sorrowful Pup stamp set from Blue Knight Rubber Stamps.  I have made two cards that show how to use this stamp as a Pet Sympathy card.  I hope you like them.

I started out by stamping my dog on white card stock.  I wanted to use the I'm so sorry sentiment, but there was not room for the whole stamp.  I took scotch tape and put it over the "I'm'" and inked up the stamp being careful not to get a lot of ink on the tape.  I took my shammy and wiped off the tape so I did not get any unplanned ink  on my card stock.  I do not like to cut my sentiments apart so this was a great way to make my sentiment work with the image without damaging the actual stamp.  I colored my image using my Copics.  I wanted to sponge some clouds on the sky, but I really thought it would look best without clouds.  Besides I think I use to many clouds on my cards, sometimes.  I don't want them all to look a like.  Next I pulled out my oval dies and cut our my image and also cut the layer.  The rest is pretty easy, I picked my paper and made layers for my card base.

For this card, I decided I wanted something different than what I have made in a while.  I actually prefer a clean looking card, but felt like I needed to mix it up a little.  My SU corner punch came to mind and I decided to use it for this card.  I stamped my images on white card stock, colored the pup with Copics.  I used my Heidi Pettie cloud stencil and turquoise ink to make my sky.  I cut the layer for the pup image and pulled out my corner punch.   I punched each piece in all four corners and attached them.  I made a small panel to go under the one side of the image.  I attached everything to the patterned paper and adhered to the card base.  I decided it needed a little bling on it so I took rhinestone paw prints and added to the corners.

I hope you will check out the Blue Knight Rubber Stamps Blog to view the cards that my team members have made.  You will find their blog information there, as well.  You can also visit the Blue Knight Facebook Fans Page.   There are always cards there to view and some have tutorials.

I appreciate you stopping in to see my cards today.  Let me know what you think of them.  Have a good week.
