Walter the Amazing Super Hero Dog ~ HSSCC181

It's time for a new Color Challenge over at Hand Stamped Sentiments and I'm not going to lie...these colors and the stamp set I chose to play with kinda kicked my booty.  The first two cards I made ended up in the trash, but I kept playing and finally came up with something that I sorta like :-)  I also came up with one that made me giggle too...stay tuned and be sure to scroll down to the end of this post to see what all the laughs were about!
Supplies Used:
Paper ~ Whisper White, Tangerine Tango, Crushed Curry, Kaleidoscope DSP, Brights DSP, Regals DSP
Ink ~ Night of Navy, Crushed Curry, Tangerine Tango
Stamp Set ~ Cool Kid
Other Supplies ~ Merry Mini Star Punch, Crushed Curry Chevron Ribbon, Rhinestone Basic Jewels
OK, on to my card that made me laugh...if you have children, especially boys, there is a good chance you have seen or heard of the Walter the Farting Dog books.  I know, the titles are awful, but the books are hilarious!  No matter how many times we read one of the books, my boys are always rolling on the floor laughing and I'm crying from laughing so hard...so silly!  Anyway, as I was stamping away and creating this next card, my intentions were to use the lines from Gorgeous Grunge to make the superhero puppy look like he was flying.  As you can see, I didn't quite achieve that appearance...
Needless to say, my older boys cracked up as soon as they saw this card.   I wasn't going to post it, but my good friend Cynthia convinced me it would make for a funny post.  So....there ya have it!  My very own version of Walter!

Be sure to check out the rest of the teams creations...its always fun to see all of the different takes when it comes to color!
Happy Stamping!


  1. Lol!!! I love it....both cards are awesome with the color combos. I really do like the layout of the second card! Now to go get and read one of these books! Great job!

  2. Haha! I'm so glad you shared both cards. I love them both, but you'll definitely have to save the second one for the kiddos! I love it! The first card - the layered DSP and stars are so good, I'm pinning it as a template for more cards :D

  3. LOL! These both look great, but if you didn't point it out, not sure if I could see the fart reference... but since you did it's hilarious! (those boys, he he he) PS Just ordered a copy of Walter the Farting Dog for the Little Muffin. I'm intrigued!
