Stampin' Up! Pampered Pets

The card I'm showing you today is a fun-fold card called a pop-up card or a shelf card that lays flat for mailing in a regular greeting card envelope, and sits upright for display.  I'm using the Pampered Pets bundle, which includes the Pampered Pets Stamp Set and the coordinating Pets Dies.  You'll find the bundle on pp. 42 of the annual Stampin' Up! catalog.  The bundle is part of the Playful Pets Suite, which includes the Playful Pets Designer Series Paper.  I used this designer series paper as the background for this card. I wanted the sassy kitty to have a more complete scene so I added the basket from the Basket of Blooms stamp set, and used a die from the Way to Goat set to add a shadow under the basket. I think the card works well for many different occasions, and you'll see that one card has a get well message from Healing Hugs, and the other has a Thinking of You Message from the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set.  I also created a Whisper White panel for the back of the card for writing a personal message.  This fun fold card is very popular right now, and I want to thank Anne from Stampin' Anne for the inspiration for this card.           

  • The basecard for this card is Flirty Flamingo.  The basecard dimensions are 4-1/4" X 10-1/2".  It is scored at 1/2" 1-3/4", 3-3/4" and 5" using the Simply Scored tool 
  • The Basic Black mat on the back panel is 4" X 3-7/8", and 
  • the Playful Pets Designer Series Paper is 3-7/8 X 3-3/4".  You'll need to pay attention to the direction you are cutting your DSP.  
  • The Basic Black mat on the front panel is 4" X 1-7/8",
  • The Playful Pets Designer Series Paper is 3-7/8" X 1-3/4".  Again, you'll want to pay attention to the direction of your print.  Ensure your patterned paper is horizontal on the longest side. 


  • The image panel (front panel) is also Flirty Flamingo.  It is 3" x 5-1/2", and
  • scored at 1/2" and 1-1/2" using the Simply Scored tool.  
  • The Basic Black Mat is 4" X 3-7/8", and
  • The Whisper White panel is 3-7/8 X 3-3/4"
  • Crease all folds with a bone folder before and after assembly
  • Attach the folds using Tear & Tape for a secure hold, or try the new Seal+ 

The sassy kitty is stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and colored with Light Smoky Slate Blends and Light Petal Pink ears.

The basket is stamped in Real Red.  I stamped it on a separate piece of Whisper White and fussy cut it so that I could cut off the handle of the basket.  The little shadow under the basket is from the Way to Goat Stamp Set.  I tried stamping it just once on one card, but found that stamping it twice gave it a more realistic look.

The sentiments are different on each card  One is from the Healing Hugs Stamp Set, and the other is from the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set.  The sentiments are stamped in Basic Gray ink.   The two little hearts is a stamp from the Pampered Pets Stamp Set, and they are stamped in Real Red.  I added one of the Clear elegant Faceted Gems for a little sparkle.   You'll want to see the entire Playful Pets Suite on pages 40-42 of the Stampin' Up! annual catalog.  You'll love creating projects with this suite, and your friends and family will enjoy feeling special when they receive one of your heartfelt, handmade cards.  Add this suite to your Shopping List today.

An Extra Month to Create Holiday Cards

My customers who have ordered in the past 6 months will soon receive the August-December 2020 Mini catalog in their mailbox. Demonstrators are already placing pre-orders from the entire Mini catalog, and are busy making sample to share with you to see what's coming!  New demonstrators who join between 1 July and 3 August may choose August-December mini catalog pre-order products for their Starter kits and will receive complimentary eight-packs of all current available catalogs and brochures in their Starter Kit.   See my Join my Team page for more info.

Yes.  We are receiving this catalog earlier than last year.  Yeah!  Customers can begin ordering from this new catalog on August 4.  That's almost a month earlier than previous years.  That means you'll have additional time to create Fall and Holiday cards with these lovely,new stamps sets and dies.

If you live in the USA and don't have a demonstrator, and want a copy of the new Stampin' Up! August-December 2020 Mini Catalog, contact me.   I would love to be your Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.
