A Dachshund Twofer

Yikes - I'm back with another Twofer! I can't seem to get enough of the 41st & final challenge!! This time I played with a freebie die Simon Says Stamp sent me - a cute little dachshund, perfect for the Twofer Card Challenge Dog/Cat. I'll also add at NBUS Challenge 29 since Mr. Dachshund is getting his first outing today!

I previously made two sets of cards featuring kitties for the final Twofer so thought it was time to give dogs their due. Here's a closer look with supply list:

Supplies: Paper - Spellbinders 8/2021 card kit,
Doodlebug, Lawn Fawn, Neenah
Dies - Simon Say Stamp Lil' Critters: Dachshund;
Honey Bee Bitty Buzzwords
Stamps - Penny Black Birthday Party
Other - Copic Markers, Stickles,
CZ Design Sentiment Strips Reverse Happy

Thanks again to my friend Jean (Right as Rain) who sent me a big box of crafty items she didn't need anymore, including the PB Birthday Party stamp set. I'll use everything eventually but it'll take quite a while!! I thought this cute mouse decorating a cake would be fun with the dachshund looking on. I created a boxy table with some strips of woodgrain paper, then fussy cut the cake image to sit on top, colored with Copics and added Stickles to the candle flames. I cut the dog in white and then cut again with a piece of Lawn Fawn bokeh that gave him a spotted look.

Supplies: Paper - Neenah white,
Paper studio brights & kraft, Ms Sparkle A2 card,
Momenta watercolor print, Stamp-on-it vellum
Dies - Simon Say Stamp Lil' Critters: Dachshund;
Honey Bee Bitty Buzzwords;
Taylored Expressions Birch Tree Cutting Plate;
Lawn Fawn Grassy Border
Stamps - Hero Arts Let's Chill (retired);
Spellbinders August 2021 card kit (friend)
Other - Copic Markers, wiggle eye,
Hero Arts clear lacquer

If you see a shadow on the birch trees, yes - I cut one in kraft to add offset behind, plus the white is stacked twice. I gave the grass two offset layers too. The birdie is from the same set I used for the fish on my second kitty Twofer. I thought she'd be cute in the trees with Mr. Dachshund saying hello!

That's it for today! Many thanks to Darnell for hosting Twofer all these years and to her great team too!!

Thanks for stopping!

How nice of Jean to send you fun schtuff, Linda, so you can give them your own cool spin and fresh love. Your third Twofer is as great as your first two! If I'm honest, even more so, because I love doxies and love how you have created awesome scenes around them with your usual attention to lots of details, your coloring, and all the texture! Thank you for playing again!! Hugs, Darnell

Love this pooch and how you've lightly colored the edges, Linda! He looks quite interested in that mouse decorating the birthday cake! I love the wide eyed look of your second doxie and the lovely forest scene with that sweet bird! Another awesome Twofer, my friend!
