Stampin’ Up! Biggest Wish Watercolor

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend going? I’ve got the day off today and it looks like it’s going to be a beautiful fall day. Unfortunately my husband is sick and my daughter is going to work, so I’ll just have to stay in and make some cards. I may run a couple errands just to get out for a bit.

Today and tomorrow’s cards are a CASE from my upline Jaimie. Last week we had our monthly team meeting and she showed us a card using the Water Painters. I have to admit, since I’ve gotten all the Stampin’ Blends Markers I haven’t water colored. That was always my go to for relaxing. I changed my card up a bit from hers, but it’s basically the same. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Biggest Wish Photopolymer Stamp Set along with my Water Painters and other sets for my card today.

I started with a Shimmery White card front and one of my acrylic blocks. Using my Ink Refills, I put a drop of Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie and Pale Papaya in on the block. Making sure my largest Water Painter was really wet, you might want to have a little bowl of water handy, I lifted some of the Cajun Craze Ink and brushed it across the Shimmery White paper. I did the same with the Pumpkin Pie Ink and the Pale Papaya Ink, blending the inks together in between them. You can either let it dry on it’s own or use setting #1 on your Heat Tool to dry the panel.

I stamped the sentiment from the Biggest Wish stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink below the brushed ink on an angle. I adhered a panel of Pale Papaya card stock to a Cajun Craze card base on an angle.

Using the 4th largest scallop circle from the Layering Circles Dies, I cut the inked panel. I cut a panel of Pale Papaya cardstock using the 3rd largest circle from the Layering Circles Dies. From a panel of Shimmery White cardstock I cut the 4th largest circle using the Layering Circles Dies. From the Shimmery White circle I cut the leaf die using my Intricate Leaves Dies. I adhered the Pale Papaya circle to the card front over the cut area. I adhered the scalloped circle over the Pale Papaya making sure the stripes from the brushed ink lined up. I adhered the leaf cut circle die over the scalloped circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the card front over the Pale Papaya panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Pumpkin Pie rhinestones from the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Tomorrow Cling Stamp Set in Cajun Craze Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the trio leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves Cling Stamp Set on either side of the sentiment, coloring the stamp using my Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie and Pale Papaya Stampin’ Write Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pale Papaya mat and then to the inside of the Cajun Craze card base.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the trio leaves image from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set, colored the same as I did for the card, on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Cajun Craze from the Regals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Joyful Life CAS

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is your weekend going? Is anyone doing anything adventurous and fun?

I used another one of my favorite sets today for a CAS card. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Joyful Life Cling Stamp Set along with the Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper and the Regals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

My colors are from CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #440.

My design is from Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #506.

I started by embossing a Basic White card front using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered 2 strips of the Brights DSP in Poppy Parade and Pacific Point and 1 strip of the Garden Green Regals DSP to the card front on an angle. I adhered the card front to a Thick Basic White card base.

Using my Layering Circle Dies I cut the 3rd largest circle and the coordinating scallop circle from a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the image from the Joyful Life stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the circle. I colored the image in using my Crumb Cake, Ivory, Poppy Parade and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers and my Garden Green Stampin’ Write Marker. On a scrap of the Pacific Point Brights DSP I stamped the same image from the Joyful Life stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink and fussy cut the apron out using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the stamped image. I adhered the circle to the scalloped circle and then to the card front.

On a scrap of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Joyful Life stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink and fussy cut it using my Paper Snips. I adhered the sentiment to the top of the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin Up! Sunny Sentiments Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered 2 strips of the Garden Green Regals DSP to the corners of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Garden Green mat and then to the inside of the Thick Basic White card base.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Brights DSP to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest CAS

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? It was a gorgeous fall weekend here, unfortunately I spent most of it inside working.

I used another one of my favorite sets from the July-December 2021 Mini Catalog for my card today. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest Bundle along with the Blackberry Beauty Specialty Designer Series Paper for my card today.

My colors are from TGIF Challenge #336.

My design today is from Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #505.

I started by adhering a panel of Blackberry Beauty DSP to a Thick Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using my Layering Circles Dies, I cut 2 circles the same size, 1 in Basic Black cardstock and 1 in Blackberry Bliss cardstock. I embossed the Basic Black circle using my Stitched Greenery Die and I embossed the Blackberry Bliss circle using my Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered them to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the small floral image from the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink and cut the image out using my Harvest Dies. I adhered the floral image to the Blackberry Bliss circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals. On a strip of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink and cut it out using my Harvest Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front over the circles using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Elegant Faceted Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Through It Together Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Very Vanilla panel. I stamped the small floral image from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel twice. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Blackberry Bliss mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Thick Very Vanilla card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope. I stamped the small floral image from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set on the envelope front twice in Tuxedo Black Ink. I adhered a panel of Blackberry Beauty DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Joyful Life for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Does anyone have plans for the weekend? I’ll be working half day tomorrow and all day Sunday too. Tomorrow is our World Card Making Day Facebook event. Please join us if you can. There will be live videos starting at 9am and the last one is at 5pm.

Today’s card I made on my Facebook Live video on Wednesday. If you were able to join me or watched the replay, thank you. If you’d like to watch my video and stamp along, the measurements are below along with the links to my Facebook page and my YouTube channel. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Joyful Life Cling Stamp Set along with the 2020-2022 In-Color 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of Bumblebee 2020-2022 In-Color DSP to the front of a Merry Merlot card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Using my 3rd largest Layering Circle Dies, I cut the card base and card front together.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Joyful Life stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I adhered the sentiment strip to a Bumblebee mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the pig and leaf images from Joyful Life stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the image out using the 4th largest Layered Circles Dies. I colored the image using my Crumb Cake and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers and my Bumblebee and Merry Merlot Stampin’ Write Markers. I adhered the artwork to a Bumblebee scalloped circle using Stampin’ Seal and then to the Merry Merlot circle that I cut from the card base, using Stampin ‘ Seal.

For the inside I scored a panel of Basic White cardstock at 2″, 4″ & 6″. The 2″ & 4″ score lines are folded at a mountain fold and the 6″ score line is a valley fold.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Brew Some Fun Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the back section of the folded panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the Merry Merlot card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the front section of the Basic White panel to the front of the Merry Merlot card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue on the top, left side and the bottom of the 2″ front section. I adhered the layered artwork through the front opening of the card using Multipurpose Liquid Glue only on the back of the right side.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the pig and leaf images from the Joyful Life stamp set on the envelope front and colored it in the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of the Bumblebee 2020-2022 In-Color DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Seasons of Fun for Amy’s Inkin Krew Team Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers. Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop. It’s the 2nd Tuesday of the month so that means Blog Hop Day!! If you are starting with me, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. If you’ve hopped over from Akiko Sudano’s blog, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by. The theme this month is “Halloween Fun”.  We can interpret this however we want.  Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Seasons of Fun Host Cling Stamp Set along with the Cute Halloween 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of Cute Halloween DSP on a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal. I wrapped a piece of 3/8″ Glittered Organdy Ribbon, which I colored using my Basic Black Stampin’ Blends Marker, around the layered panel and adhered it on the back with Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the card front to a Flirty Flamingo card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the Halloween image from the Season of Fun stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Crumb Cake, Flirty Flamingo, Highland Heather, Ivory, Old Olive and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using my Layered Circles Dies. I cut a scalloped circle from a panel of Basic Black cardstock using the Layered Circles Dies and adhered the artwork to it using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! A Wish For Everything Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. Using my Double Oval Punch I punched out the sentiment. I punched out a Basic Black scalloped oval using the Double Oval Punch and adhered the sentiment to it using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Pumpkin Pie Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from A Wish For Everything stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of the Cute Halloween DSP to the side of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Flirty Flamingo card base using Multipurposed Liquid Glue.

Stampin’ Up! Jar of Flowers

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? Hope you were able to take some time for yourself.

Today’s card I used an older set from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog, using all the new 2021-2023 in-Colors. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Jar of Flowers Photopolymer Stamp Set for today’s card.

My design is from the Just Add Ink Challenge #558.

I also played along with Inspire. Create Challenge #092.

I started by adhering a panel of the 2021-2023 In-Color 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Soft Succulent card base using Stampin’ Seal. I embossed a panel of Basic White cardstock using the Macramé 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to an Evening Evergreen mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the matted panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the flower image from the Jar Of Flowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Evening Evergreen, Fresh Freesia, Pale Papaya, Polished Pink and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using my Layering Circles Dies. I cut a scalloped circle from a panel of Evening Evergreen cardstock using my Layering Circles Dies and adhered the artwork to the scalloped mat using Stampin’ Seal then to the embossed panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I made a small bow using the Fresh Freesia 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon and adhered it to the artwork using a Glue Dot. I added a few 2021-2023 In-Color Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Encircled In Friendship Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of the 2021-2023 In-Color DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Evening Evergreen mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Soft Succulent card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower image from the Jar Of Flowers stamp set on the envelope front and colored it the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of the 2021-2023 In-Color DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Daisy Garden

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week and on the downhill to the weekend. Is anyone starting to make plans?

It’s time for another inspiration challenge for The Card Concept. For the next 2 weeks we have a Garden Pleasures challenge. Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Daisy Garden Cling Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden Cling Stamp Set for Spotlight Technique card. I was inspired by the cheerful flowers and colors along with the beehive in the inspiration photo.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concept and join us this week to play along with our challenge #155. How are you inspired by this photo?

I started by stamping the daisy image from the Daisy Garden stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I picked a spot in the center of the photo and cut it out using my Layering Circles Dies. I adhered the Basic White panel (without the center circle) to a Highland Heather card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I colored just the circle I cut our using my Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Pool Party and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the circle to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals making sure to line up the flowers and leaves.

On a small panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Tasteful Labels Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered a length of the Gold Simply Elegant Trim to the card front using a Glue Dot and adhered one of the Bumblebee Trinkets to the end of it on a flower using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the wildflower image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the side of the panel and colored it in using my Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Basic White mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Highland Heather card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To complete my card I stamped the wildflower image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set on a Basic White Medium Envelope front and envelope flap. I colored the images in using my Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Tranquil Thoughts Mother’s Day

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone doing today? We’re halfway through the week and on our way to the weekend. Hope you are starting to make plans.

Today’s card is another we made at our class last Monday. This one was a little different. I didn’t show the ladies the card. I handed them an envelope with all the card pieces cut out and gave them 2 stamp sets to choose from to work with and told them to create. One of them had Poppy Parade cardstock and ink and the other had Melon Mambo cardstock and ink. I used Flirty Flamingo for mine. Everyone had the same pieces of True Love Designer Series Paper to use. Unfortunately I forgot to take pictures of the card designs they came up with. None were like mine. Here’s my card for today.

My card used the Stampin’ Up! Tranquil Thoughts Bundle. This bundle will be retiring soon, so if it’s one that you like now’s the time to grab it.

I started by embossing a Basic White card front using the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder. Everyone had the same embossed panel to start with. I adhered s strip of Flirty Flamingo cardstock to the back of the strip of True Love DSP using Stampin’ Seal and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the flower image from the Tranquil Thoughts stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink and cut it our using my Tranquil Dies.

I stamped the sentiment from the Tranquil Thoughts stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the Basic White panel and cut it out using the Layering Circle Dies. I cut a panel of Flirty Flamingo cardstock using the next size up Layering Circle Dies and adhered the sentiment to the mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the flowers to the side of the sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the card front to a Flirty Flamingo card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Strong & Beautiful Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the flower image from the Tranquil Thoughts stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Flirty Flamingo mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Flirty Flamingo card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower image from the Tranquil Thoughts stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the True Love DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Sailing Home for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends! Welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today. If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a Sketch Challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s amazing projects. Here is my card using this weeks sketch.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Bundle and the Stampin’ Up! Sailing Home Bundle.

I started by adhering a panel of Sea & Sand Designer Series Paper to a Misty Moonlight card base, only around the edges, with Stampin’ Seal. Using my Layering Circles Dies, I cut a circle out of the center of the card front.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the lighthouse image from the Stampin’ Up! Sailing Home Cling Stamp Set in Sahara Sand Ink. I stamped the starfish image from the Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cinnamon Cider Ink and colored it in using my Cinnamon Cider Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the images out using my Smooth Sailing Dies and my Seaside Shells Dies. I stamped the seaweed images from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set, Just Jade on Just Jade card stock and Soft Sea Foam on Soft Sea Foam cardstock and cut the images out using my Seaside Shells Dies. I cut the larger seaweed image from a panel of Pear Pizzazz cardstock using my Smooth Sailing Dies. I stamped a couple of the small seashells from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set on scraps of Sand & Sea DSP and cut them out using the Seaside Shells Dies.

I adhered the lighthouse to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue just on the bottom. On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink. I adhered the sentiment to a Misty Moonlight mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front across the circle, using Glue Dots. I arranged the seaweed and shells on the side of the circle and adhered them down using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink on the top of a panel of Sand & Sea DSP and adhered it to the inside of the Misty Moonlight card base using Stampin’ Seal. On the panel of Basic white cardstock I stamped the larger sailboat from the Sailing Home stamp set in Misty Moonlight and the smaller sailboat in Basic Gray Inks and cut them out using my Smooth Sailing Dies. I cut another circle from a panel of Basic White cardstock using my Layering Circles Dies. I stamped the cloud image from the Stampin’ Up! Mountain Air Photopolymer Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink, stamping off twice, on the top of the circle. I stamped the bird image from the Sailing Home stamp set in Basic Gray Ink. I adhered the circle to the center of the inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the sailboats to the bottom of the circle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, making sure to be able to see them through the card front.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the lighthouse image from the Sailing Home stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Sand & Sea DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Pampered Pet Cat Birthday

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. Hope your having a good start to your weekend. I’m off this weekend. Both my jobs are closed tomorrow and I took off today to prep for our Easter brunch tomorrow. We started doing brunch a few years ago and everyone seems to love it. It is a lot more work that dinner though. I finished all my Easter Egg bread baking last night. I forgot how long of a process it is to make, but WELL worth it.

For today I have a birthday card for my niece who will be turning 40 tomorrow, on Easter. Her and I have always been so close, she’s like a daughter to me. I don’t know what I would ever do without her, she’s that great. She loves animals, but really loves her dog and cats so I thought I’d make her a cat card this year. I used the Stampin’ Up! Pampered Pets Bundle for my card today along with the Playful Pets Designer Series Paper. Here’s my card for today.

My design is from Mojo Monday Sketch #556. I love layered cards and this one has a lot of layers.

I started by adhering a panel of Playful Pets DSP to a Basic Gray card base using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered panels of Playful Pets DSP to Basic Gray mats using Stampin’ Seal and adhered them to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut a circle from a panel of Basic White cardstock using my Layering Circles Dies. I cut a coordinating scalloped circle from a panel of Basic Gray cardstock using my Layering Circles Dies. I stamped the butterfly and mouse images from the Stampin’ Up! Pampered Pets Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. On a small panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the cat image from the Pampered Pets stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the images in using my Flirty Flamingo, Gray Granite, Real Red and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the cat image out using my Pets Dies and adhered it to the circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the Basic White circle to the scalloped circle using Stampin’ Seal and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a scrap of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Pampered Pets stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I fussy cut the sentiment and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I threaded one of the Playful Pets Trinkets using the Snail Mail Twine and tied a bow. I left very long tails on the bow so I could wrap it around the cat. I adhered the heart to the card front using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Family Party Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the cat image on the bottom of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it in using my Flirty Flamingo and Gray Granite Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a strip of the Playful Pets DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Real Red mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Basic Gray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the cat image from the Pampered Pets stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it in using my Flirty Flamingo and Gray Granite Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a strip of the Playful Pets DSP on the envelope front and a panel of the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!
