Good day, crafty friends! Are you a pet lover? I love animals, but I’ve got some bad allergies, so it’s always tricky for me. So the next best thing is to craft with them! I needed some inspiration so I asked designers Shelly Mercado and Charmaine Ikach to create some projects using TE’s fun Pawsitively Purrfect line of stamps and dies. I squealed with delight when I saw what they cooked up! (You will, too…)
A Note from Shelly…
I think we all know a little girl who loves her cat. I wanted to create a card using the Pawsitively Purrfect set, Graysie, and the Mini Color Block Cutting Plate. The images and sentiments fit perfectly inside and I had fun putting this card together.
I colored the images with Copics and used the Build a Scene Nursery dies for the sweet rug Graysie is sitting on. I really love the flower pot, it’s so bright and cheery, and, I imagine they keep Graysie happy, too!
Next up, for all you puppy lovers…here’s a cutie from Charmaine!
A Note from Charmaine…
I have LOTS of friends (and family members) who have dogs. Sometimes, I like to send a “just because” card, and one with a dog on it is perfect! This Trixie Stamp & Die Combo is absolutely adorable — who wouldn’t smile looking at this adorable doggie?
I used some Hello Happiness 6×6 Paper Pack paper for the background. Trixie was colored using Copic markers. I used two different Stitched Stacklets on this card as well (Stitched Oval Stacklets and Stitched Heart Stacklets.) The bow on Trixie’s ear was stamped, colored, hand cut and then adhered to the card with foam tape to give it some dimension. As a finishing touch, I added some Hello Happiness Sequins onto the card. The next time you’d like to create a “just because” card, why not use some of your animal/pet stamps! They are sure to put a smile on anyone’s face!
Well, these two cards put a huge smile on my face! Thanks, ladies, for sharing! I hope you’ve been as happy as I was to check out these cute pet cards. Have a joyful day!
