If you know anything about Stampin’ Up’s Designer Series Paper, you might recognize the name of Playful Pets in the title of this post. It’s one of the new Designer Series Papers that came out in the new 2020-22 Annual Catalog. This cute little paper set is filled with little doggies and kitties, paw prints, foodbowls and treats.
But what (or rather who) is Lane in the title? Why one of the 5 grand-dogs I have! I have no grandchildren, but I do have grand-dogs. And the oldest is Lane, also known as Fluffy Butt. Here she is. She’s such a sweetie!
And doesn’t this little doggie that I fussy cut from the Playful Pets Designer Series Paper look just like sweet little Lane?
Maybe you need to see a side by side view….but aren’t they so cute together?
When I first saw the Playful Pets Designer Series Paper, I thought it was cute, but I don’t have any pets, so thought I would pass this one by. However, I had some paper left over from a Paper Share that I did and I needed to find a way to use it. This little doggie practically jumped off the page….so I needed to find a way to feature her on a card.
This just shows that you don’t need ALL the supplies that come with a suite of products, all you need is the Designer Series Paper and a little imagination to make a card. I knew I was going to put the dog on Stampin’ Dimensionals to make her “pop” off the card a little, so I cut a little wider around the dog then attached it to a piece of Whisper White Cardstock to make it a little sturdier before fussy cutting it out.
I used the cues from the Playful Pets Designer Series paper and picked the Flirty Flamingo color from the ears and tongue to help choose the colors I would use to layer my card….and I thought she looked good with a layer of Soft Suede and Crumb Cake. I added a little ribbon, because my grand-dog is a girl.
I used a sponge dauber and Flirty Flamingo Ink to make my own “splotch” behind her to add a little more color to the card and so she would stand out a little more since she is feature of the card.
And I also added a little texture to the card too by embossing the Soft Suede Cardstock layer with the Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder.
If you would like to make this card, these are the supplies that you will need:
- Playful Pets Designer Series Paper
- Flirty Flamingo Cardstock – Cut 5 1/4” x 4”
