Scrapping for Less ~ For the Love of Pets!

Hello! I'm here today with another look at the August Flavor of the Month card kit ~ For the Love of Pets. For my post today, I wanted to focus on the adorable stamp set included in the Banana Split subscription, rightfully named... For the Love of Pets!

I also decided to revisit this sketch... it was my favorite of the sketches this month and I thought it would be perfect to showcase these adorable images from the stamp set. Both cards are using the same color schemes which was easy to do by just flipping the patterned papers included in the kit to change things up just a bit for each card. I started with a white card base for both cards and then adhered a 4 x 5-1/4" piece of Banana Split card stock. I layered that with a 3-7/8 x 5-1/8" piece of Kraft card stock. I adhered my patterned papers and set those aside.

I stamped the images using Memento tuxedo black ink and then colored them in using Copic markers (I'll list those below). I die cut the images using a Large Cross Stitch Circle die and mat that on a slightly larger circle die cut from the same patterned papers. 
I popped up the main images on both cards.
 I stamped the sentiments and used a banner die to cut them out and also the black layers. I adhered those together and popped them up on the card. To add a little fun embellishment, I die cut the 'meow' and 'woof'' two times from Black Licorice card stock. I adhered the layers together with some liquid glue. I also die cut the yarn ball and the dog bone. I added a little bit of grey to the edges of the bone using a N3 Copic marker.

I moved the embellishment pieces around until I found a good place to adhere them and used a mix of foam tape and liquid glue to adhere them in place. My final touch on the kitty card was to add some white gel pen to the highlights on the fish bowl.
Copic Markers used: Kitty - N0, N3, N5, R20, YR12, YR15, YR16; Fish Bowl - YR12, YR15, B0000, B000, B00; Puppy - N0, N3, E30, E31, E55, E57.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

See ya next time.
