Puppy Love

     Today is an exciting day for me.  Not only did I get to start playing with my new Puppy Love stamp set from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, in a couple hours I am going to hopefully fall in love with a new puppy, myself!  I have been searching for a Mini Dachshund, little girl for over a year, only to find there is a brother and sister not far from my home.  Fingers and toes crossed that this is a good match!  My biggest fear is that I will want the brother also, if he is still available.

 
     When I saw this set was being released, I know it had to be part of my collection.  The sentiments and images are just great.  My first card uses a Dachshund stamp and I thought the diggity sentiment was fitting.  The set also has assorted sizes of paw prints, and hearts.  I used a scrap of chevron cardstock from my stash, and punched, glossed, and glittered a heart which I popped up. 

 
     My second card is on a kraft panel, dp from the Crate Paper, Fourteen collection, and a strip of burlap.  I double stamped these doggies with Cracked Pistachio Distress ink,  and Memento black.  I used a C7 Copic to give them a shadow on one side.  I again punched a heart and stamped one of the small hearts from the set inside.  All of this was done on a SB Romantic Rectangle diecut, which I sponged with Old Paper Distress ink.

 
     Please be sure to check out this set and all of the new release at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps!  They are fantastic!

     I would like to take these over to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge : Anything Goes.
Also, this would be fitting for Darnell's NBUS Challenge #4, as my second entry, since these are new goodies I am using.  Have a great week!

Both cards are so cute! I looked at that Sweet 'n Sassy set yesterday at the stamp show, and almost purchased it. It is a really nice set.
I'm so happy for you, I can feel your excitement (I would be excited too) I'm a big dog lover.
but I think our pet days are over...so I am happy to be able to visit with my grand puppy!

You already know how much I love these cards!! This is too funny - I used the dachshund stamp today to make a tag for our neighbor's dog's Easter treats, and I used that same chevron dsp to make an Easter basket yesterday! GMTA! Love the burlap panel and great shadow stamping on the 2nd. I'm waiting for that phone call telling me you have 2 new doggies in your home :)

Mary Anne, I'm behind on commenting, but these two cards are absolutely fabulous. Love that Diggity Dog sentiment on your first card, it just made me laugh. Your second card's sentiment is so very true and I think you did a fantastic job with the shadowing. Nice touch. Well it is Monday and I can't wait to see if you came home with one or two babies. Please let us know and pictures would be great. I'm hoping for two!!!!! It's so much fun to watch them play together. One or two I'm pretty sure you'll have a fun day today.

First of all, I'm loving these cards Mary Anne! SO cute. And now...........I'm over the moon excited for you on getting that little love of your life - and can almost guarantee you're going to want both!! LOL! So excited for you and happy. There's just nothing better in the world than one of those little "long dogs"! Can't wait to see a picture!
Thank you so much for the well wishes - and I'm hoping to at least get back in the swing of things soon.
