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!!

Stampin’ Up! Pampered Pets

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s week starting out? The next 2 weeks will be short working weeks for most. I know I’m looking forward to having Thursday and Friday off this week. I’ve gotten most of my cookie trays done, so I’m going to deliver a few this morning before going in to work. I’ll deliver the rest tomorrow.

For today’s card I pulled out the Stampin’ Up! Pampered Pets Bundle from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog and mixed it with the Stampin’ Up! Many Messages Bundle from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog. Here’s my card for today.

My design is from Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #466. Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of Playful Pets Designer Series Paper to a Real Red card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a small panel of Playful Pets DSP using Stampin’ Seal over the 1st panel.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the dog bowl image from the Stampin’ Up! Pampered Pets Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I added a tiny amount of color around the edges of the bowl using my Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Marker then used the Color Lifter to remove most of the color. I embossed the panel using my Subtle 3D Embossing Folder. On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the dog image from the Pampered Pets stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I colored the dog in using my Flirty Flamingo, Real Red and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using my Pets Dies and adhered it to the embossed panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the panel to a Real Red mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue then adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Many Messages Cling Stamp in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Messages Die. This bundle is 1 stamp with many sentiments on it and 1 die that cuts out all the sentiments at once and will be available January 5, 2021. I adhered the sentiment to the bottom of the artwork using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a couple of the Playful Pets Trinkets, one to the sentiment and one on the dog.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Pampered Pets stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the dog and bowl images from the Pampered Pets stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored the image in using my Flirty Flamingo, Real Red and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Real Red mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Real Red card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the dog and bowl images from the Pampered Pets stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the front of the envelope. I colored the image in using my Flirty Flamingo, Real Red and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the Playful Pets 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!!

WHISPER WHITE CARDSTOCK PRODUCTS- AVAILABLE WHILE SUPPLIES LAST

Stampin’ Up! announced this information related to the Whisper White paper products late last evening:

Whisper White has been a Stampin’ Up! staple for so long. We love it and we know you love it, too. We are sad to announce that the supplier’s mill producing our Whisper White cardstock has permanently closed due to impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic. Unfortunately, we weren’t given much notice on this closure. This means that the technology unique to this particular supplier is now unavailable to us and we can no longer offer our Whisper White cardstock and related products, such as Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes. Please note that this won’t affect any of our other cardstocks, this only affects Whisper White.

We know Whisper White has a huge fan base; we’re big fans, too! And we are crushed that it’s going away. Even though this decision was out of our hands, rest assured that we jumped right into action to find the best replacement paper possible. We have dedicated many hours to source and test alternative cardstock options from several suppliers to find the perfect fit that still maintains the Stampin’ Up! quality you know and trust. We are happy to share that we have found a winner for our new cardstock, Basic White!

The quality of our new Basic White was thoroughly tested by our quality assurance and product teams. It also tested very well with demonstrators and concept artists who gave it a huge thumbs up. We believe in the quality of the new Basic White cardstock and we know it will become your new crafting staple!

What does this mean for you?

With Whisper White going out of production, this means a number of Whisper White products will be affected. Below is a list of all products that will be replaced with our new Basic White cardstock. These items are now available while supplies last with an order limit of 2 per item per order.

  • Whisper White 12″ x 12″ (30.5 x 30.5 cm) Cardstock (124302)
  • Assorted Memories & More Cards & Envelopes (149710)
  • Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes (131527)
  • Whisper White 3″ x 3″ (7.6 x 7.6 cm) Envelopes (145829)
  • Whisper White 8-1/2″ x 11″ Cardstock (100730)
  • Whisper White 8-1/2″ x 11″ Thick Cardstock (140272)
  • Whisper White Medium Envelopes (107301)

Our new Basic White products will become available to purchase as soon as we have them in stock. This means that some Whisper White and Basic White products may be available at the same time. Additionally, due to the nature of sourcing, some Basic White products may not be available before the Whisper White products sell out. Please know that we are working on getting these products available to you as fast as possible.
