Imaginisce and Xyron Blog Hop! :)

Xyron and Imaginisce are doing a swap all week long! Be sure to check out THE BLOG for details and to see who else is hopping along! :) I received Good Dog in the mail and I knew just what I wanted to do with it! 

My dog is named Spoon as some of you know. She is a little Yorkie. The dog she loves most in the world is named Dash. We call him her boyfriend.

A few weeks ago Dash ran out of the house and got hit by a car. He is undergoing about 18 procedures over 6 weeks go get better. It is heartbreaking but he will be okay! We wanted to send him a little care package and a get well card from Spoon. 

Dash is a grey dog so we made the dog on the front of the card grey by using "silver" embossing powder that I did not heat emboss. The "doggy bag" has dental bones, treats, and a chewie inside. The plush toy is also for dash. Who doesn't like a dragon when they're down? :) 

I did a tutorial on the card below. I hope you enjoy it! :)

Die cut dog at 2.5" tall (3.5" long).
Run through Xyron sticker maker to apply adhesive to the grey layer.
Pour grey heat embossing powder over the grey layer to add texture.

Cut a piece of paper at 3.75" square.
Cut the red layer at 4" square.
Cut the green chevron layer at 4 7/8" square.
Cut a 1.5" bubble.
Stamp the sentiment onto speech bubble.
Put i-rocks around the outside.

Use Mega Runner to adhere ribbon and layers together.

Zig-zag sew - reverse stitches and pull them out a little so they seem distressed. 
Use Mega Runner to adhere fire hydrant. 
Use foam tape made from the Xyron Creation Station and craft foam to adhere the dog and speech bubble.

Tie a bow with Twinery twine in marucino and adhere to the dog. 

I just wanted to go ahead and play along with the Imaginisce sketch challenge for this month. This is the last day to enter! You need to use green and the word "luck" or "lucky" as well as Imaginisce product to participate! 

I made these pair of thank you notes for our dog Spoon to give to the people who watch her while we are away on trips! We are actually coming back from one today! :)

When I was taking pictures, my little "helper" kept moving back into view! :) 
This also qualifies for Shop Pumpkin Spice's LUCKY challenge! 

Be sure to check out Margie and Mitchell's blogs as they show you what they have done today with the Imaginisce product swap! 


We have a super fun week lined up with some AMAZING projects to make sure you check back every day! :)
