Pink & Main – May Pup

Hey friends! I’m over on the Pink & Main blog today with some sweet doggo inspiration featuring the May Pup stamps and dies. If you’ve followed since January, you’ll know that this set is a gift with minimum purchase for a short time after each release and then it’s also available in the shop if you just want to pick it up. They are themed for each month and are absolutely adorable!

I stamped and colored the pup and his beach ball with copic markers before using the coordinating dies to cut them out. Then I grabbed the new Warm Basics paper pad and chose a couple of fun patterns for my background. I cut the yellow from the third-to-largest Stitched Diamond die and used the largest Layered Rectangle on the stripes.

Next, I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment from May Pup and used the coordinating die to cut it out as well. Can we just take a moment to say how AWESOME it is when die sets also have the match for sentiments?!? I love it so much! It seriously makes my day.

Now that everything is ready I started assembling my pieces. I glued the stripes to a white card base with EZ Squeeze liquid glue. Then I popped the diamond up with foam tape. Next I added the pup, beach ball and sentiment with foam squares. Be sure to double your foam where they overhang the diamond so they still lay nice and flat. This only equaled like 2 1/2 extra foam squares and it’s totally worth it!

Now that this pup is ready for fun in the sun, I moved on to finishing touches. Today I added Touch of Gloss to the sunglasses, beak on the floaty and center of the beach ball. It just gives a little shine to everything which catches your eye in the light. Then I added white gel pen highlights to all the images. Finally, I added a scattering of Pretty Posies glitter enamel dots. I love that they match the paper pad so perfectly!

Are you ready for fun in the sun? I really am! We’re taking the longest camping trip ever (I think) for July 4th and I’m so excited I think about it every day and it’s a month and a half away still!
