Thanks for stopping by my blog today. This class features the Pets & More stamp set from Stampin’ Up!

Pets & More card class cards

This stamp set contains some cute animals and fun accessories. It is a special reversible stamp set, which means you can fill in the image with colour by using the reverse (flat) side of the stamp.

The first card shows where I used the reverse side of the stamps to colour in the images. This works well for symmetrical images.

Pets & More class card 1

I created the woodgrain background by swiping a Pecan Pie stamp pad over a piece of Basic White cardstock that I had scored every 1/2″ using a score board. A little Early Espresso ink was added over the panel to give a bit of shading. I learned the woodgrain background technique from Gina K.

Watch the video to see how I made this card, and for tips and tricks along the way.

For the second card I created my own monochromatic patterned background by stamping a cluster of 3 stamps randomly on the background panel. I stamped the dog and cat images in Memento black ink and coloured them with Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers.

I made the third card for a friend who likes dogs, and for the layout I was inspired by the fractured card technique.

Pets and More class card 3

This is the easiest of the cards I created, with a piece of Designer Series Paper for the background, and some simple colouring with Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers.
