Pampered Pets Birthday Card




I recently needed a birthday card and decided I would play with the Pampered Pets bundle from the NEW 2020-2021 Annual Stampin' Up catalog. This "suite" has a stamp set, matching dies, and coordinating designer series paper (DSP) along with a couple other little items. The stamp set and dies can be purchase separately but if you buy them as a bundle you will save 10%


If you look closely you will see the cute little trinket on his collar and the black and white twine used as well is part of the "suite"


I used one of the dies to cut out the dog from this piece of DSP. So quick and easy!! No stamping and no coloring. I adhered the dog image with dimensionals to the Real Red cardstock  I cut using the Stitched Nestled Dies. I used the 5th die in the set if you count them from smallest to largest. That was also popped up on Stampin' dimensionals.


The saying on the inside of the card comes from the Pampered Pets stamp set. The Happy Birthday sentiment came from a retired set (Bonanza Buddies) and the paw print came from a retired set (Happy Tails). Honestly any Happy Birthday stamp will work and it will look just as nice without the paw prints.

I have listed all the supplies I used in today's card below along with all the card cut dimensions. You can click on any of the items below to be taken to my online store where you can order from me if you chose. I am a fairly new demonstrator and I do appreciate your orders. I listed 2 different adhesives. Either works great and it's just personal preference.


Card Cuts Used in this Project:

Real Red Card Stock   8-1/2" x 5-1/2" scored at 4-1/4"
Real Red Card Stock   5-1/4" x 4"  this piece is run through the Subtle Embossing Folder
Basic Black Card Stock   4-1/2" x 3-1/4"
Playful Pets DSP  4-1/4" x 3"
White Card Stock for inside of card  5-1/4" x 4"

I hope you enjoyed this card today.  Thank you for visiting my blog and have a beautiful day!

2020 In-Colors featuring Lovely Labels Pick a Punch


Introducing our brand new 2020-2022 In-Colors!! They are Magenta Madness, Just Jade, Bumblebee, Misty Moonlight and Cinnamon Cider. They look beautiful in this card but they are absolutely amazing in person!! You need to add them and the coordinating ink pads to your stamping stash ASAP!



I CASE'd (Copy and Share Everything) this beautiful card from fellow demonstrator, Debbie Henderson. Since we weren't able to pre-order all the new In-Color Ink Pads she decided to use Versamark and Clear Embossing Powder melted with a heat gun to give it the effect of each color. The leaf she used in her card was from the Tasteful Touches Stamp Set. The image I used is from Rooted in Nature. Pretty much any leaf image or even flower image would work.

To make this card I started out with a Whisper White Card Base cut at 4-1/2" x 11" scored at 5-1/2"
The strips of In-Color Card Stock were each cut to 4-1/4" x 1"
Using the new Lovely Labels Pick a Punch I punched each end of each piece of Card Stock.

This punch is basically a 6 in 1 punch!! It cuts 2 designs in 3 sizes: 1", 3/4" and 1/2" !  Pretty cool!


After cutting the ends of each piece of Card Stock I adhered them to the front of my card base. I adhered the top piece and then the bottom piece each about 1/8" from the top and bottom of the card. I then adhered the next to the top piece and the next to the bottom piece about 1/8" from the first 2 pieces. Finally I fit the last piece in the middle.

To stamp and emboss the leaves image I first layed a white piece of paper just under my strips on one side. This is so I only stamp on the colored card stock and not on my white card stock. I stamped the image randomly on the one side with Versamark. Quickly moved my piece of paper to the other side and finished stamping with Versamark. I then poured clear embossing powder over the entire thing. Pouring the excess back into the container. Clean up any embossing powder that  you don't want on your project with a small paint brush or your Pick a Tool if you have one. Using your heat gun heat your card stock until it becomes shiny. Careful not to burn yourself or the card stock.

It's hard to capture in a picture but I think you can see the shine from the embossed leaves.



After I was done heat embossing I stamped the saying from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Misty Moonlight. Any saying you have will work though. I added a couple random In-Color Enamel dots and VOILA!! My card is done. What do you think??  It's a pretty quick and easy card.
