Sweet Stamp Shop Puppies

Happy Monday!  Isn’t crazy how quickly weekends go by?!  I always feel a bit confused when the alarm goes off on Monday mornings, wondering if I’m just dreaming that the weekend is done!  I hope you had a good one!

Today, I’m back over at the Sweet Stamp Shop blog explaining how you can easily create a free watermark for you photos!  It’s easier than you think, I promise!  Go take a look if you don’t have a watermark and would like to learn how to make one and apply it to your photos!

I created two cards to share today and I think you’ll agree that the new pup (Doggy Dog) released last week is a keeper!

Stamps:  Sweet Stamp Shop (Doggy Dog)

I masked the triangle in blue and then popped up the colored main image in the middle of it using foam dots.  I actually cut apart the three words in the stamp set to place them on each of the three sides of the triangle.  This little guy is ready to recycle some bones!  Isn’t he so thoughtful?

I brightened things up a bit for my second card…

Stamps:  Sweet Stamp Shop (Doggy Dog, Too Hip, Just the Basics – sentiment)

We have a nephew that loves the color orange and has a little dog he adores.  I colored the puppy in the colors of his dog and then cut it out and popped it up again with foam dots.  The orange dots I created with a pencil eraser and orange ink.  I added star sequins for a little shine.  The little party hat is from the Too Hip set!

I hope you’re adjusting well to the time change if you have that where you live!  It always seems like it takes me about a week to get used to it, so I’m dragging a bit today!  Thank goodness for coffee and the sunshine that is shining in the windows this morning!  We have some major snow melting going on with the temperatures climbing into the 40’s!  It’s so exciting to see grass peeking through the snow!  Of course, first comes the mud…

Have a marvelous Monday!

    What a cute little pup! Your nephew is going to love his happy orange card. We have grass too for a few days, expecting more snow mid week ~ UGH!

    Can you imagine how confusing it is to wake up on a Sunday morning and get ready to do the school run?!
    Yes, that's the way things work here in the UAE, where weekend is on Friday and Saturday. After living 6 years in this country I still find it hard to adapt to that!
    Enough about being confused ! I love your two cute happy cards!
    Have a great week Melissa!

    Oh, WOW, Hannelie! That's an interesting way to go about a week! I'd still be adapting too!!!
