DT Rianna ~ Pets and Animals

Hi everyone,

This month is full on with birthdays and special occasions, I will be turning 21 this Wednesday (15th November YAY!) how time flies by...but anyway, this month's theme is Pets and Animals at Auzz Trinklets N Crafts and I have created this cute birthday card that I made for my friend's birthday. She has quite a variety of pets!

I always enjoy playing around with multiple stamp sets to create something cute, fun and unique.

~My Process~

First I cut my card base at 8 1/2 by 5 1/2 inches, and folded it in half. Then I cut my card front using My Favorite Things A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Set 1 ( 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" ).

I used my Sizzix Big Shot to cut out the card front, clouds and grass.

I used the Tim Holtz Stamp Platform to stamp the sentiment 'HERD YOU HAD A BIRTHDAY' using Versafine Onyx Black ink and the animals using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I stamped the animals onto X-Press It Blending Card so I could use them with my Copic Ciao markers.

Everything was adhered to the card base and card front using Tombow Multi Mono Liquid Glue.

To add some dimension to the animals eyes and the cat and dog's nose I used a Sakura Glaze pen in black.

DT Teresa - Pets and Animals


November is bringing Pets and Animals projects to you from the Auzz Trinklets and Crafts blog. I decided to pull out a stamp set I have had here for a few months and had not yet had a chance to use.

This card uses Neenah Classic Crest 110# Smooth Solar White Cardstock for the base which is cut with a paper trimmer at 4 1/4" x 11" and scored with a teflon bone folder at 5 1/2" to make a top folding card of 5 1/2" x 4 1/4".

I used Simon Says Stamp Cardstock in the colours Seaglass, Green Apple and Green Leaf for the sky, grass and tree foliage.

The dies used were Lawn Fawn Stitched Tree Borders, Puffy Clouds Borders and Grassy Hillside Borders. The tree trunks were coloured with Copic Markers E17 and E 79.

The cat was stamped in Altenew Inks, Paper Bag and Dark Chocolate from Altenew Modern Cats and the grass clumps were stamped from an older set, My Favorite Things Modern Blooms.

The sentiment was also from Altenew Modern Cats stamp set, stamped in Versamark Ink and twice embossed with Ranger Liquid Platinum Embossing Powder.

I embellished the card using Ranger Liquid Pearls in Ruby Red and Tonic Studios Nuvo Drops in Simply White.

Thankyou for following along with me today. If you cannot find the items I have used (listed below) in the Auzz Trinklets and Crafts store, be sure to drop Neha a message via email or Facebook and she will do what she can to order the product in for you.

Happy crafting and have a great day!
