IHP - Doggie Bag

I know several people who have recently brought new pets into their homes. On a regular basis through our fostering, I know many people who adopt pets into their families, but I can't give gifts to everyone of them! Instead, I'm trying to make a gift for friends who have a new furry addition.

It's a Doggie Bag!! I may break my arm patting myself on the back for the name of this project. My inspiration came from the i {heart} papers design team inspiration for this month;

I love the windows in the blue room, and the colour of the pink accessories, so I combined the ' feel of the 2 rooms.

I stamped my cute little dog from my Paw prints on Our Hearts stamp set by Market Street Stamps on X-Press it Blending card stock by Copic with London Fog Memento ink. I made her nose and eyes black by colouring over the grey ink with a black 0.3 Copic multi liner pen before I coloured her with C00/01/03/05 copic markers. Because I use Memento ink and copic pens, my image doesn't smear or run when I colour using copic markers. This collar image is too short for this dog image since it is intended for the Chihuahua image in the set, but it's not a problem since I extended the collar by filling in the gaps with my multi liner pen.

That sweet little bling on this pup's collar is a light pink basics rhinestone from kaiser craft. A must have for all puppy fashionistas!!

This tag was made using leftovers from the window - waste not! I stamped the sentiment in London Fog Memento ink and the little paw print and wings was stamped in Rich Cocoa Memento ink. I used a larger light pink rhinestone below the sentiment and attached it with a tiny paper clip. Natural Linen cord was cut to length and then separated into strands before being tied to the paper clip. This paper is from Uncommon by Authentique. I wanted to add a little more personality to my bag so I cut off the top 2" using Pierceabilities Pinking cutting border die. The effect is fabulous!!

This is too sweet and a great idea, Loretta! Chloe the cutie puppy would love a treat filled gift bag like this one(of course, she's not the most discriminating eater, so she loves just about anything edible and even some things that aren't . . . ).

A lovely gift for a friend! I really like that pink you chose, more like a coral pink. The frame and see through baggie is beautiful. I wouldn't have thought of colouring the pup blue, but then, you always have great ideas!

What a lovely idea, so kind and thoughtful. The embellishment is just gorgeous.
All the best Linda (UK)


A truly inspired gift! Well done!
