Stampin' Up Playful Pets Christmas Cards

 Oh my goodness!  I love the Playful Pets Suite so much!  For these cards, I only used the Playful Pets Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the suite.  In my opinion, this one is a must have if you love cats and dogs, or will be sending cards to people who do!  

One of the dies will cut out the gray dog on the DSP, and the rest are super easy to fussy cut with Paper Snips.  The dies are perfect for cutting out the images from the stamp set.  I just decided not to use it this time.  

Originally, I had planned to make just one Christmas Card with this set, but I liked it so much I decided to make more.  Some of the expressions on the cats & dogs crack me up!  

I also wanted to show you how easily this card can be altered to make a birthday card.  

I hope you like these cards and inspired to make something wonderful!  Happy Stamping!

Stampin' Up! Nature's Beauty Christmas Card with Toile Tidings DSP

This Christmas Card features the beautiful Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up!  It was effortless to make and could easily be changed to just about any type of card by simply changing the sentiment.  I think it would be perfect for a masculine birthday or thank you card.

 Do you have stamping techniques you find yourself using over and over again?  I definitely have favorites that I keep going back to!  For instance, I love using clear embossing powder over a colorful stamped image like I did in today's card.  (This is super easy to do with Stampin' Up!'s Stamparatus!)
