We Create Blog Hop - Animal Kingdom

Welcome to the APRIL 2021 "Animal Kingdom" Blog Hop!!! We generally hop on the first day of every month, and this month the focus of our projects will be anything to do with the animal kingdom. I chose to feature the Pampered Pets BUNDLE for this post. (NOTE: the stamp set and dies will still be available in the 2021-2022 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog - which debuts May 4th - but you will not be able to purchase them in a bundle to get the 10% discount)
{scroll to the bottom of this post for ALL product purchase links}

The Playful Pets Designer Series Paper will NOT carry over to the new catalog, so I decided to feature it in my cards today. Anything on the Last Chance Products Sale is only available while supplies last, so if you love this paper, grab a handful of it as soon as you can! You may have noticed that, once again, I'm using 3"x4" pieces of Designer Series Paper on my cards. It's such a great way to use 12"x12" papers like this, with no waste! And my backing layers are colors that coordinate with the patterned paper, so that makes the design super easy.

I used the Playful Pets Trim Combo Pack to embellish my cards after I did the simple layering. This trim pack IS going to carry over to the new catalog, so you can still enjoy this great color combo with your Pampered Pets stamp set and the Pets Dies! It's a great item to stock up on, because the colors are so easy to use with any images.

I decided to use the Playful Pets Trinkets to embellish my cards after I added the trim. These trinkets are NOT going to carry over to the new catalog, so just like the Playful Pets Designer Series Paper, you will want to grab a handful of these before they are gone. Scroll down below the Blog Roll for links!

These would be great cards to make for a rescue or a shelter, or even a veterinarian's office. They could use the "treat" cards for birthdays, and the other ones for sympathy cards. If you have an organization you like to support, you could even offer to donate them to be sold at their brick and mortar location, or in their online store, so they could keep the proceeds.

  1. What a fun set you created! Way to use that cute DP!

  2. Wonderful card set with this suite. You have showcased these cute pets perfectly.

  3. Any card with a dog - you just can't go wrong. I love this paper and am so sad it is retiring. Great way to showcase both
