I am starting to participate in a new challenge with The Paper Players which you can visit by clicking HERE to see all of the entries. The challenge for this week is “Clean and Simple”. This means there are minimal layers, little to no embellishments and lots of white space.
This cute little kitty is in the Stampin’ Up!® Pampered Pets stamp set. I used the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers in Flirty Flamingo, Smoky Slate and Basic Black to color the image. The sentiment is from the Zoo Globe stamp set.
Measurements: Basic White Card Stock (CS) card base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches with a score line at 4 1/4 inches; Flirty Flamingo CS: 4 x 5 1/4 inches; Basic Gray CS: 1 x 5 inches; and Basic White CS: 3 5/8 x 5 inches.
I believe it is very important to let your children know that you are proud of them from time to time. Fortunately I have four beautiful children who I am very proud of. This card will be mailed to my lovely daughter, who is not only working full time and but is also taking four courses at the local community college. I am very proud of all of her accomplishments.
This funtastic Pampered Pets stamp set is perfect for the dog or cat lover! This card is for my daughter who has both a dog and three cats.
This is a very common and easy fun-fold with a slight variation to make it more interesting. I turned the Real Red Card Stock (CS) that goes behind the stamped puppy card piece to make it diamond-shaped.
Measurements: Real Red CS card base is 4 1/4 x 11 inches with score lines at 2 3/4 and 5 1/2 inches; Real Red CS: 2 3/4 x 2 3/4 inches; Whisper White CS: 2 3/4 x 2 3/4 inches and 4 x 5 1/4 inches; Playful Pets Designer Series Paper (DSP): 2 1/2 x 4 inches.
With Memento Black ink stamp the puppy onto the 2 3/4 x 2 3/4 inch Whisper White CS. Tip: We will be coloring with the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers and the Memento ink will not bleed.
Stamp the sentiment “I hope your day is a real treat” in Memento ink onto the lower right hand corner of the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Whisper White CS. Add the little pet food bowl and then the hearts.
The Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Marker colors are: Light Basic Black and Light and Dark: Smoky Slate, Flirty Flamingo and Real Red. I also used the Real Red Stampin’ Write marker that is part of the Regals Assortment for the collar and dog’s mouth.
First color with the Stampin’ Blends Light Basic Black to accentuate the edges and shadows. Add the Dark Smoky Slate and blend it into the Light Basic Black.
Blend in the Light Smoky Slate. Tip: When blending the light color into the darker colors, use a small circular motion. I added a little Light Flirty Flamingo to the belly, ear and nose.
Color the mouth and collar with the Stampin’ Write Real Red Marker. The tip is finer so it is easier to put the ink just where you want it. Add a little Basic Black ink to the nose.
Color in the hearts with the Light Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blend and add a slight shadow on the right hand side of each heart with the Dark Flirty Flamingo. The pet food bowl is colored with the Light Real Red Stampin’ Blend on one half, and the Dark Real Red on the other half.
Take the Real Red CS card base and use your Bone Folder to make a Z-fold as shown.
Adhere the 2 3/4 x 2 3/4 inch Playful Pets DSP to the front panel of the Z-fold. Adhere the sentiment card piece to the inside.
Apply adhesive to half of the 2 3/4 x 2 3/4 inch Real Red “diamond-shape” and apply to the front panel over the Playful Pets DSP. Be mindful of the placement so that the sentiment shows completely when the card is closed.
Apply adhesive to the colored puppy card piece and adhere it to the Real Red diamond-shaped card piece. Be mindful of the lower right corner so that it does not cover the sentiment.
Viola! This card is a playful fun-fold that was pretty quick to make! I hope my daughter gets hers in the mail before this blog posts!
