Had a lot of fun with the Playful Pets suite and Mini Paper Pumpkin Box.
I love, love, love all of the elements in Stampin’ Up!’s Playful Pets Suite. We didn’t have a dog or cat growing up. (We kept rabbits as pets!) But as soon as my sisters and I moved out of the house, my parents purchased a dog, a Brittany Spaniel named Dirk. Then, slowly, my sisters and I became dog owners.
We had a Basset Hound called Max, and my sister, Kara, owns a Boston Terrior named Reggie. My son’s girlfriend has Stan, a Yorkie. So, the dog-themed stamp set (Pampered Pets), the coordinating dies (Pets Dies), and the Playful Pets Designer Series Paper spoke to me.
Playful Pets Mini Paper Pumpkin Box
And, what fun to combine it with Stampin’ Up!’s Mini Paper Pumpkin Boxes and the Playful Alphabet to create fun treat packing. I started with Stan, the Yorkie. The Designer Series Paper includes an image of a Yorkie. I cut that out with the small oval from the Stitched Shapes and layered it with selections from the layered ovals. So cute!
Here’s a picture of Stan!
I didn’t want Reggie to feel left out. So I used the Playful Alphabet to die cut the letters to spell “woof.” Super cute, isn’t it? I’ve put little dog treats and poop bags inside.
Now, here’s a picture of Reggie when he was a puppy. Who can resist that cute little face?
I appreciate being able to create fun and whimsical cards and treats for friends and family. These Mini Paper Pumpkin Boxes are perfect for lots of ideas. Each package contains 10 boxes for $7.50. See this post for the box of sunshine I recently created. (Be sure to check it out. There’s also a quick Facebook Live replay.)
Find the Playful Pets Suite beginning on page 40 of Stampin’ Up!’s 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. And, no worries, if you’re a cat lover, this suite has images for you, too.

A Basset Hound Named Max
An old scrapbook page featuring our dog Max and our son.
Almost twenty years ago, a puppy we named Max joined our family. We felt lucky to have him with us for more than 10 years. He was oh so cute, but he could be oh so naughty! More than once, he stole food items off of the kitchen counter such as sticks of butter, loaves of bread, and even tomatoes. Weighing in at more than 50 pounds, he thought he was a lap dog! Max left us about 12 years ago, but we talk about him often.
So, I’m partial to any dog-related stamp set or Designer Series Paper or embellishments. I love Stampin’ Up!’s new Playful Pets Suite. (No worries if you’re a cat lover. Cats are represented in this set, as well!)
Playful Pets Suite
This suite offers a host of fun elements I used to create today’s card:
- Pampered Pets Stamp Set
- Playful Pets Designer Series Paper
- Pets Dies
- Playful Pets Trim Combo Pack
- Playful Pets Trinkets
Everything about this suite is super cute! A fun feature of the Designer Series Paper and dies is that the dies not only cut the stamped dog image but also the images on the Designer Series Paper. You can see that I used the dog image from the paper on this card. The same holds true for the cat images. Remember, when you purchase the stamp set and dies together, you receive a 10 percent discount on the bundle.
I also embossed the Real Red card stock front of the card with the Subtles 3D Embossing Folder and added one of the Stitched Nested Labels.
Thanks for stopping by today. Let me know if you have questions about today’s card or any other paper crafting concern.
