Paper Smooches SPARKS: Designer Draft Challenge!

Hi, crafty friends! I hope your week is off to a great start. Today was a busy day for me, but I managed to fit in some time to play along with the current Designer Drafts challenge at the Paper Smooches SPARKS blog!
The sketch for this challenge is perfect for building a scene. For some reason, the image of a dachshund pulling links of sausage out of a birthday present got stuck in my head, so I put that scene together on this card!

All of the stamps on today’s card are from Paper Smooches stamp sets: the dachshund is from the “Woofers & Tweeters“set, the sausage is from the “Wake Up” set, the party hat was made from small stamps in the “Party Posse” set, and the sentiment is from the “Birthday Sampler” set. The only image that isn’t from a PS set is the present/box, which I made with a metal square die, and outlined the edges with a black pen to match the other parts of the scene.
Here’s a look at the sketch:

I hope you enjoyed my card…thanks so much for stopping by today! I’ll be back tomorrow with the newest digis at Some Odd Girl Stamps! See you then!

Paper Smooches SPARKS: Picture Perfect

Greetings! Just popping in today to share my card for the new SPARKS challenge at Paper Smooches! This time, it’s a “Picture Perfect” challenge!

For my card, I used images and a sentiment from the “Woofers & Tweeters” set:

Other supplies: card stock, patterned paper (Echo Park), embossing folder (Lifestyle Crafts/Quickutz), metal dies (Spellbinders), button, twine (The Twinery), Copic markers, Brilliance Graphite Black Ink, orange ink (Stampin’ Up).
To make the background, I die cut the heart from the white card stock, then embossed the panel. Finally, I inked up my brayer and rolled it along the embossed panel. To make sure the heart was placed in the dog’s mouth, I cut a slit with my craft knife, then slipped a corner of the heart underneath.
You may already know that I almost always color my dog stamps grey/black in honor of my dachshund, Midnight. I thought the color scheme for this challenge was perfect!
And here is the photo that inspired my card:
