Playful Pets Suite, Thinking of You
I totally fell in love with the Playful Pets suite when I first saw it in the new annual catalog. The colors are great and it's just so much fun! Today's card is made using a couple of the stamped images, one of the sentiments from the stamp set, matching die cuts and some of designer series paper and matching trim. Let's get started!
The colors in the suite are Basic Black, Cinnamon Cider, Early Espresso, Flirty Flamingo, Real Red, Soft Suede, Whisper White and today's card features, Basic Black, Real Red and Soft Suede.
I used the following cuts of cardstock:
Basic Black (card base): 11” x 4¼”, scored at 5½”
Real Red: 4" x 5¼"
Paw/Heart Designer Series Paper: 2" x 5¼"
Basic Black (sentiment mat): 2⅜" x 1⅛"
Whisper White (sentiment): 2⅛" x 1"
I also used the following stamps and die cuts from the matching sets:
"I hope your day is a real treat" sentiment stamp from the Pampered Pets cling stamp set
Front facing dog stamp from the Pampered Pets cling stamp set
Pet bowl stamp from the Pampered Pets cling stamp set
Front facing dog die from the Pets dies
Using your paper trimmer, cut your Basic Black cardstock to 11” x 4¼” and score at 5½” to create your card base
Use your bone folder to get a nice, crisp fold for your card base
Using your paper trimmer, cut your Real Red cardstock to 4" x 5¼"
Using your paper trimmer, cut your Paw/Heart Designer Series Paper to 2" x 5¼"
Using your paper trimmer, cut a piece of Basic Black cardstock to 2⅜" x 1⅛" (check your scraps!)
Using your paper trimmer, cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock to 2⅛" x 1" (check your scraps!)
Place your cut Real Red inside the Dainty Diamonds 3D embossing folder and run through your Big Shot (or equivalent)
Using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, stamp the front facing dog image onto Whisper White cardstock (check your scraps!)
Using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, stamp the pet bowl onto Whisper White cardstock (check your scraps!)
Using Soft Suede Stampin' Blend markers (light and dark), color the stamped dog image
Using Real Red Stampin' Blend markers (light and dark), color the stamped pet bowl image
Use the matching die for the front facing dog image and cut it out using your Big Shot (or equivalent)
Using the same dog die, cut out another in Basic Black to layer and create a shadow look
Take out your paper snips and fussy cut out the dog bowl
Stamp the "I hope your day is a real treat" sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto your pre cut 2⅛" x 1" piece of Whisper White
Cut a 6" piece of the Real Red and White matching Playful Pets combo trim - this will become what will look like a leash for the dog
Apply Stampin' Seal to the back of your embossed Real Red cardstock and apply it, centered, to your Basic Black card base
Apply Stampin' Seal to the back of your designer series paper and adhere over the embossed Real Red approximately ½" from the left side of the Real Red
Make a small cut into the die cut dog's open mouth and using a small amount of multi purpose liquid glue, adhere the bowl in the dog's mouth so it appears the dog is holding the bowl in it's mouth
Apply multi purpose liquid glue to the back of the stamped die cut dog image and adhere slightly off set onto the same die cut in Basic Black (see image for details)
Arrange the die cut dog image on your card to determine where the cut piece of trim will go and adhere down using liquid glue or a mini glue dot under where the image will be placed
Add a few Stampin' Dimensionals to the back of the die cut dog image and adhere down
Place your stamped sentiment onto your card to determine placement and use liquid glue or a mini glue dot to adhere down the other end of your "leash" under where the sentiment will be, with the end of the leash peeking out the left side of the sentiment (see image for further details)
Pop 4-5 Stampin' Dimensionals onto the back of your sentiment and adhere down
As a finishing touch, add 3-4 red rhinestone jewels to the card
