Stampin’ Up! Pampered Pets Thank You Card

I took my Kerry Blue Terrier, Keelan O’Shea, to the vet this week. I made this card for Dr. Harry because I appreciate all he does for us and I want him to know that two recommendations have had positive results for our fur baby. I used the Stampin’ Up! Pampered Pets Cling Stamp Set and the Layered Circles Dies from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. The design was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest from Patsy Waggner at Stamps to Die For. Enjoy!

The Paper Cuts

  • Basic Gray Cardstock: 11″ x 4 1/4″, scored at 5 1/2″ (card base)
  • Basic White Cardstock: 3 of the 5th from smallest smooth circle die, 2 5/8″ x 5 1/2″ (front) and 4″ x 5 1/4″ (inside)
  • Real Red Cardstock: 3 1/2″ x 5 1/2″
  • Basic Black Cardstock: 3 of the 5th from the smallest scallop circle die

The Creating

I stamped the 3 critters in Tuxedo Black Ink on the Basic White circles and colored them with Stampin’ Blends: Soft Suede Light and Dark, Basic Black Light and Dark, Gray Granite Light and Dark, and Dark Real Red for the collar. I also added the back of the dog image to the inside panel and the envelope and colored as the one on the front. I also stamped the Thanks sentiment from the Ornate Thanks Stamp Set on the inside panel.

I adhered the stamped circles to the Basic Black scallop die cuts with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added the Real Red panel and the Basic White panel to the Basic Gray card base. I dry fit the circles and trimmed a little off the top edge of one and the bottom edge of another (cats) with my Paper Trimmer to line up with the card edges and adhered them with liquid glue. I popped the pup up with Stampin’ Dimensionals. He’s the star of the show! I adhered the inside panel and added 3 Matte Black Dots with the putty end of the Take Your Pick Tool to embellish the front.

And here is my sweet fur baby, Keelan….

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed the card! If you have any questions or need a catalog, I’d be very happy to be your Demonstrator.   You can drop me an email at stampdabbles@gmail.com. I’d love to hear from you!

    Stampin’ Up! Playful Pets Birthday Card

    Monday is my husband’s birthday, so this card is for him. It features the Pampered Pets bundle and the coordinating Playful Pets Designer Series Paper and Playful Pets Trinkets. I chose this set because we have owned two Salt and Pepper Miniature Schnauzers and currently a sweet Kerry Blue Terrier named Keelan O’Shea. I’ll post his picture at the end. I’ll also give some tips on getting those little bitty paw prints on your card. Enjoy!

    The Paper

    • Real Red Cardstock: 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″ and a Heart Punch.
    • Basic Black Cardstock:  4″ x 5 1/4″ and a paw print die.
    • Playful Pets DSP: 4 7/8″ x 3 5/8″, a 5″ x 1/4″ strip and 2″ x 5 3/4″
    • Whisper White Cardstock: largest Stitched So Sweetly scallop frame, dog die cut, scrap for dog bowl and 5 1/4″ x 4″ panel.

    The Creating

    • Stamp the dog and dog bowl in Tuxedo Black Ink on Whisper White Cardstock. Color with Smoky Slate Dark, Basic Black Light/Dark (nose) and Real Red Dark (collar) Stampin’ Blends. I used the Color Lifter to lighten the inside of the bowl. Fussy cut the dog bowl with Paper Snips and die cut the dog.
    • Use an exact knife to cut the front curve of the dog bowl opening. Use a bone folder to curve the fibers of the dog bowl. Insert a dog bone trinket and secure with a Mini Glue Dot to the back of the bowl. This will help hide the trinket loop.
    • Die cut a paw print die from Basic Black being careful not to disturb it as it exits your die cutting machine. Carefully lift the extra cardstock leaving the paw pieces on the plate. Place a small piece of Press and Seal Saran Wrap over the pieces and burnish with a Bone Folder. Carefully lift off the plate. If the pieces don’t come with the wrap, stop and burnish again until it does. Flip the wrap over and apply a small amount of Multipurpose Liquid Glue to each piece of the largest paw print. Apply it to the front corner of your Heart punch and press to secure. Slowly lift the wrap leaving the paw pieces in place. Save the other two prints on the wrap.
    • Adhere the Basic Black panel to the card front. Add the stripe DSP and top it with the scallop frame die. Adhere the heart to the right corner. Stamp your sentiment in the left corner. This one is from Peaceful Moments (my favorite sentiment set).
    • Add the bowl and trinket with a Mini Glue Dot on each side. (If mailing I recommend you pad the front).
    • Pop up the dog die cut with Stampin’ Dimensionals. So cute!

    The Inside & the Envelope

    • Stamp the sentiment in Tuxedo Black Ink.
    • Adhere the stripe strip along the bottom edge of the Whisper White panel. Adhere to the inside of the card.
    • Adhere the medium paw print above the sentiment.
    • Adhere the DSP to the envelope flap and trim with Paper Snips.
    • I added the small paw print to my card front next to hubby’s name and added a dog bowl which I colored with Real Red Dark Stampin’ Blend. I used the Color Lifter to lighten the inside of the bowl.

    As promised…here is a picture of our fur baby. We don’t have children so he has us totally wrapped. I would have colored the dog on the card black like him, but we joke about how hard it is to get a good picture of him because he is so black so I colored the dog gray. Kerry Blue are jet black as puppies and at 18 months begin to lighten to a slate gray as they age.
