aahh, my old buddy "Bow Wow" resurfaces....
I made some of these cute little holiday doggie treat bags to sell at the O'Fallon YMCA craft fair last Saturday....who remembers this darling little SU set called Bow Wow? I think it was one of the first SU sets I ever got back in the day when SU offered wood mount or foam mount options. At that time, I was using a repositionable mounting system with clear acrylic blocks so I peeled the rubber off the foam and attached it to the clear acrylic block. Wow, what's old is new again, right? SU is going to be offering a vinyl cling system using clear acrylic blocks starting with sets in the Occasions mini available January 5th.
Anyway, it was fun playing with this stamp set again and a great reminder of the convenience of stamping through a clear acrylic block while still enjoying the stampability of my favorite deeply etched Stampin' UP! rubber. I did several dozen of these doggies bags rather quickly because I could see right where I was stamping. How cool is that? But I will tell you one thing, my two dogs were my bestest friend the whole time I was working on this project....guess they were hoping I would drop a doggie trick here and there while I stuffed the cello bags. But I would never do that....would I??? ;-) Jan
