Dog & Cat Lovers, This is For You!

I put together some really cute cards and pet treat boxes using the Playful Pets Designer Series Paper, coordinating card stock, and a variety of paper punches. Check them out on this video replay of my July 8th Facebook Live on Stampin' Peace VIP. You'll get cutting information and demonstrations for assembling all the projects below.

 

I can't help but smile when I look at the cute pups on these delightful cards.

Who would have thought that Cinnamon Cider and Real Red work so well together? I had no idea until I saw that they were part of a fabulous color combination in the Playful Pets Designer Series Paper.

I replaced a couple of the punched circles with punched hearts for the card below. I love it!

Our new 3 1/8" x 3 1/8" Acetate Card Boxes make cute little gift boxes for dog & cat treats. Know someone who has a new pet? Why not gift them with a bit of cash in one of these cute boxes to help them with purchasing treats, toys or other items needed to keep their pet happy and healthy.

I love the little heart that is part of the Dog Builder Punch. I can use that punch year round for any time I want to add a little heart embellishment to my cards, gift tags, or other paper crafts.

The Real Red ribbon in the Playful Pets Trim Combo Pack is the perfect size for dog and cat collars with the Dog Builder and Cat Punches. Sometimes it's the tiniest detail that completes you project.

Simple & Elegant

Simple and elegant is the best way to describe today's cards. The Blossoms in Bloom Bundle is fabulous for so many reasons. I love creating with the stamp set and coordinating Many Layered Blossoms Dies. These simple and elegant Blossoms in Bloom cards are wonderful all occasion cards. Use them as note cards or to express sympathy, thoughts of you, weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, promotions, retirement, and more. Tone on tone cards such as these perform well as simple and elegant cards.

These cards are elegant in both Whisper White and Very Vanilla.Many Layered Blossoms Dies & Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder by Stampin' Up!

TIP:  Use Adhesive Sheets with card stock to die cut & adhere the die cut pieces to your card fronts easily.

The Gray Granite 1/4" Shimmer Ribbon adds a nice pop of color without taking away from the card's simplicity and elegance.

I can't decide which I like better, the Whisper White card above or the Very Vanilla card below. Which is your favoite?

The woven ribbon from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack matches our Very Vanilla card stock perfectly.

What other Stampin' Up! colors would you use to make these simple & elegant tone-on-tone cards? Petal Pink is on my mind.

Want to make these simple and elegant cards a bit fancier? Consider adding a bit of metallic or glitter paper with a few small die cut flowers or perhaps some embellishments such as small Metallic Pearls or gold Gilded Gems. We have even more embellishment to choose from. What will you choose?

#simplestamping with Blossoms in Bloom

The Blossoms in Blooms gives you the look of beautiful watercolored florals without watercoloring - just simple stamping! In the following video replay of my June 4th Facebook Live on Stampin' Peace VIP Group, you'll see I use the same color combination of Mango Melody, Flirty Flamingo, Garden Green, Pool Party, and Early Espresso, to make several different cards with the same layout. The possibilities are endless for making cards with  the look of beautiful watercolored flowers but with the ease of simple stamping. I think you're going to love the Blossoms in Bloom Stamp Set and creating beautiful cards with it for any and all occasions.

Split Card Technique with Forever Fern

I love the new Forever Fern Stamp Set featured in the Forever Greenery Suite by Stampin' Up! It's filled with beautiful botanical images in lots of lovely shades of green plus has wonderful ribbons, trims, and embellishments to coordinate with the stamps, dies, and Designer Series Paper. I also love using different stamping techniques, so today I combined the lovely Forever Fern Stamp Set with the Split Card Technique. The results are beautiful!

 

With the Split Card Technique, you make 2 card fronts at once.Split Card Technique with Forever Fern Stamp Set by Stampin' Up!

Simple Stamping with Field of Flowers

The new Field of Flowers Bundle by Stampin' Up! is full of possibilities with its interchangeable collection of words, stamp images that can be used in any color combination, and a punch to "Step-Up" your cards a little or a lot. Flowers are my thing, especially flowers out in nature and on our porches, patios, and gardens, so I was immediately attracted to this set. Today's cards showcase this beautiful new stamp set and SIP, aka Stamps, Ink, and Paper. (I'll put the punch to use in future posts.)Field of Flowers Stamp Set by Stampin' Up!

These 3 cards show the progression from simple to stepped up to stepped up a little more all while sticking to the basics - stamps, ink, and paper.

Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, and Balmy Blue are a warm, sunny, cheerful color combination during this beautiful summer season.

More of the same beautiful stamped flowers is an easy no brainer way to step up your cards as in the card below.

Another fun way to step up your cards is to stamp your sentiment or part of your sentiment on scrap paper, cut it out with Paper Snips, then pop it up on your card front with Stampin' Dimensionals or Mini Stampin' Dimensionals as I used here.
