Stamp Review Crew - Pampered Pets

Welcome to the Stamp Review Crew's Pampered Pets edition! The "Crew" is made up of a group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators from around the world who pick a stamp set or bundle to highlight on the first and third Mondays of each month, with a bonus hop if there is a fifth Monday. If you landed here from Betty's blog, Kitty Stamp, welcome! There are six of us today, so so it's a short hop.

I HAD three cards planned, but lost one of the images when I went to make the third card. It was colored and die cut, and is nowhere to be found. I suspect the cat, but he's not talking. So there are only two for today.

The first is a pet sympathy card for a friend who just lost her beloved dog. I know from too much experience what a hole that leaves in her heart.

I made a mask using copy paper and used Blending Brushed to add the rainbow. In hindsight, I should have used Pacific Point instead of Misty Moonlight, and by the time I got down to that end of the rainbow, the brush was picking up color from the mask. Lesson learned!

I'm sooo sad to see that the Subtle 3D embossing folder is retiring. I use it all. the. time. *sigh*

The second card is a bit more cheerful, and for a friend who has an orange and white cat named Princess Punkin. My cat Pumpkin (aka Punkin, or sometimes the Punk if he's naughty) always sends his regards when we talk, LOL.

The background was lightly colored with Mango Melody with a Blending Brush and the polka dot Basic Pattern Decorative Mask. It's so simple!

After I stamped the hearts and mousie, I realized I couldn't color them with Stampin' Blends like I usually do, so I used Stampin' Write Markers instead so it wouldn't bleed through.

That's my share for today, so jump on over to see what Mary at Center Stage Stamping has made!




  1. Great projects Cindy! I love them. So sorry for your friend that is so hard. If the cat every talks I hope you find your third item. lol

    1. Still haven't found it, Holly. When it turns up, it will be sitting right in the middle of my desk. I think we have a playful poltergeist.

  2. Such sweet cards! Both of your blending brush ideas are wonderful. I sympathize with the lost stamped image... amazing how they can be there on minute and gone the next-lol!

    1. Glad I'm not the only one that happens to, Betty!

  3. Love both of these Cindy. You're a whiz with the blending brush! I'll miss the Subtle Embossing folder too. X


Thank you for visiting - I'd love to hear from you!
