Paper Smooches & IHP

Hi friends!

Today is a fun day here on the blog, because I get to share a really fun stamp set that 
Kate (owner of i {heart} papers) and Kim Hughes came up with, to support our rescued furry friends. Together they created some really fun dog rescue products! A portion of the sales will be donated to Home for Good.  Kim asked us to share these fun products through our projects!  Cool huh?


I know losing a pet can be so difficult.  They become our family, our friends and have personalities all their own.  Using the first set, called Paws For A Cause,  I chose this sentiment, and added it to the one of the Streamers dies, along with a brown heat embossed silhouette of one of the dog images.  


To finish it, I added a stamped heart from the set, and covered it with glossy accents.


For this card, I went a bit grungy, using a new to me Tim Holtz embossing folder, and the tiny sentiment set, called Lucky Dog.  I added a bit of Antique Linen Distress Ink, and rounded the corners.  I adhered it to a matching Kraft base, and tied on some twine.


I took a white die cut heart, stamped the little paw image repeatedly, and then added a sentiment in the center.
