Pampered Pets

The Playful Pets Suite in the annual catalogue is perfect for the animal lovers in your life! Whether it’s cats or dogs that make you say, “awwwww,” this suite has an extra dose of cute for both!

I personally am extra fond of dogs. I’m a volunteer for an assistance dog charity in Edmonton called Dogs With Wings. I often make thank-you cards for the organization and have co-hosted an event called the “Flying Colours Craft Day” twice with funds going directly to the organization. So when a new pet set was released, I knew immediately that I NEEDED it!

Episode 16 of “Why Did I Buy This?” featured Stampin’ Blend Markers. These alcohol based markers are perfect for soft colouring and blending. If you missed the episode you can catch the replay here:

For this card, I wanted the cat to be white (like a Persian), but I didn’t want to leave the cardstock naked white. I wanted it to feel like it had more dimension. I brought in my trusty light Pool Party Stampin’ Blend to add “low lights” where the shadows might appear on this kitty.

Don’t you just want to give that kitty a hug??

I used the Color Lifter to blend and soften the edges of the marker to help the white stand out. I’m really happy with the effect.

Is the Pampered Pet stamp set on your wish list? What’s your vote? Cats or dogs? Don’t worry, we can be friends no matter your choice, I like them both!
