Love to Craft? Join my Dazzling Divas team!

Hello again! Are you ready for some more inspiration for the cute kit and stamp set? I used both of these products for this week’s CASE-ing Tuesday challenge. If you missed my earlier post this morning, you can check it out here. Did you catch my Facebook Live? If not, you can watch the rplay on my YouTube Channel here. Be sure to subscribe so you can always be notified of my videos. I absolutely love these products!!! They are so fun!! Who doesn’t love kittens and puppies?!?

Let’s look at the layout first. It’s definitely a sweet and simple layout, just stamps, inks and paper.

Here are the measurements:

  • Base in Basic Black – 12″ x 12″, retired
  • Pool Party cardstock – 11″ x 11″
  • Basic White cardstock – 10 1/2″ x 10 1/2″

I was in a crunch for time when I created this layout, so as you can see, it’s really simple. After stamping the background stamp twice, (which it is a repeating image!) I colored a few images with my Stampin’ Blends for a pop of color. My photos are 4″ x 4″ and I stamped the sentiment from the kit in Memento ink. The paw prints are stamped in Pool Party, stamping off first. The embellishments are the Adhesive-Backed Hearts & Flowers from the Bee Mine Suite in the Jan-April Mini Catalog. Yes, it’s simple, but I love it! Now let’s look at our first card:

Here are the measurements:

  • Basic Black cardstock base – 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″, trim off 3″ off the front
  • 2024/2026 In Color DSP – 4″ x 5 1/2″ and 1/2″ x 3 3/4″ for the inside
  • Basic White cardstock – 1/2″ sentiment strip and 3 3/4″ x 5″ for the inside

Now, if you aren’t sure what color that is, it’s one of the upcoming In Colors, Summer Splash. Isn’t it gorgeous? In the video I used the new Petunia Pop to give it another look. Since the service I use for my supply list doesn’t have the item numbers of the kit or any new In Color product at this time, here is a list for you to be able to shop:

  • 163876  – By My Side All Inclusive Kit
  • 163777 – 2024/2026 In Color DSP
  • 163809 – Summer Splash Ink Pad
  • 163797 – Summer Splash Cardstock
  • 163786 – Summer Splash Ribbon
  • 163811 – Petunia Pop Ink Pad
  • 163801 – Petunia Pop Cardstock
  • 163785 – Petunia Pop Ribbon

I have made this fun-fold before, but thought it was a new look at it as a landscape style card. I used the Heartfelt Hexagone punch and the 1 3/4″ circle punch for label, all layered with Stampin’ Seal and added to the card with dimensionals. And don’t forget the sparkle gems!!! The sentiment is from the kit.

Here’s a look at the inside. The paw print is punched out with a retired 1 1/4″ circle punch.

For the envelope I just stamped the bone from the kit in Summer Splash ink.

Isn’t that a fun card? Now let’s look at our second card:

Here are the measurements:

  • Old Olive carstock base – 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″
  • Card base from kit – 2 @ 5 1/4″ x 4″
  • Basic White cardstock – 3 3/4″ x 5″ for the inside

This kit creates 8 cards, 2 of each style with 2 different card bases. I love this one with the plaid background. All of the elements in my card, except for the base and white layer for the inside, is from the kit. The ink spot for the kit is in Old Olive, which is why I went with the Old Olive card base. To trim the card front and keep the watercolor wash centered, I cut the card base in half, then trimmed each side at 1/8″. The back of the card base is in that beige color, so I decided to use it on the inside. After everything was trimmed, I just followed the instructions that are included in the kit to complete my card.

For the inside, I stamped my layer in Old Olive with the paw prints and the fish being stamped off. I then attached this layer to the back of the card base that I trimmed and added it to the inside of the card.

The envelopes in this kit are so stinking cute!!! I just had to use it to coordinate with my card. I love that the white circles are printed on the envelope flap so you can stamp the paw prints in them!

Sadly this kit isn’t available at the moment – but it will be back!!! Just be sure to add the item number to your wish list so that when it comes back in stock, you can get it. Here’s a look at what all comes in the kit:
