Blog Hop

Paper Crafting Blog Hop – Suite Spotlight

Welcome to our Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring talented Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators. Fellow demonstrators from all over the globe including the USA, United Kingdom and Australia are participating. We have a wide array of fun projects and design styles to share with you! You may have arrived from Sandy Ward’s blog. She had a fabulous project!

I chose the Playful Pets Suite for this months hop. I was away at a retreat and had a few challenges so I used the Pampered Pets Suite and came up with the items below. I chose to do Simple Stamping for these cards which is not my normal, but hey, I am doing challenges right!

The first card I made was for a Fun Fold Challenge. Out of the Playful Pets Designer Series Paper, I chose a dog themed paper. I stamped the dog image for the front and colored it with my blends. I used the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch for the greeting on the front of the card.

My second challenge was a 6×6″ One Page Wonder. I was able to make 5 cards using the 5 cut pieces from the designer series paper. The red striped paper is another sheet included in the Playful Pets paper pack. I stamped some of the images and colored them with my blends and I cut out two of the cats from the designer series paper. I also used the Stitched So Sweetly dies and the Wrapped in Texture embossing folders to create this group of cards.

The next group I did for a Christmas Themed Project Challenge. I made Matchbox Pet Treat Boxes. These are perfect to give to the favorite pets in your life! Our cat Lucky always “helps” me in whatever I am doing and she enjoyed sampling a treat for quality assurance! The Mini Milkbone biscuits are so darn cute too! My grand-dog Piper is a Golden Doodle. She will think these biscuits are a tease! Good thing there are several in the box.

These were made using the Playful Pets Designer Series paper. I used a dog and a cat themed piece for each of the covers. I stamped the cat and the dog and colored them with my blends. The greeting for these came from the Warm Hugs stamp set and these are tied with the black and white twine from the Playful Pets combo pack.
