How cute is this stamp set? Answer: very. It’s called Hot Dog and is a fun way for me to take part in this Share It Sunday blog hop, with demonstrators from around the world. I hope you enjoy taking a trip through some great blogs and seeing some fabulous projects.

But before we begin, I must remind you that today is the final day of Sale-a-Bration, so if you want to take advantage of any of the SAB freebies, please act extremely fast.

The paper I’ve used on these first two projects is called Berry Blessings and is a Sale-a-Bration item so available for just a few more hours!

Thankfully, there is no desperate rush to get your hands on Hot Dog, as this cute stamp set is part of the January-June Mini Catalogue collection. It features three different Dachshunds plus lots of fun accessories and greetings.  However, I decided to keep things simple with some colouring using my Stampin’ Blends and this vibrant Designer Series Paper. 

This DSP features the little-used Pacific Point, and not before time. Why do we neglect Pacific Point so much? It’s a really lovely blue and I remember greeting its arrival with much excitement. 

To stop the dog ‘floating’ in mid air, I stamped onto the circle element using Woven Heirlooms. I love this grungy image, with a bit of pattern showing through, giving it the look of a faced old carpet. The ‘hi’ adds a final touch and makes it ideal to send to a Dachshund-owning friend for no particular reason at all.

Here is another card I made using this gorgeous Designer Series Paper and Hot Dog. The greeting is very silly, but seriously, not as silly as the next one which for some reason keeps making me chuckle to myself...

Bone-jour! 😂 I do love a terrible pun and this one is pretty terrible, all right! I’ve kept this design clean, simple and masculine, using the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper as my background. I really love that paper, especially the wood-effect sheets. 

As I say, my designs are pretty simple, but after two months of intense crafting for Sale-a-Bration, I felt like scaling things back a little. It’s also important to remember that not everybody has the time or resources for big fancy projects – and simple can be just as effective in many cases. 

Please now take a look at the creations made by other Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators around the world for this Share It Sunday...

Hot Dog is a stamp set which offers a huge amount of potential for many different occasions, and is perfect for the dog-lover. Take a look at all of the stamps here:
