Playful Pals: DOstamperSTARS DSC#187

Amazing Fun with Playful Pals!

I had so much Fun with Stampin' Up! 'Playful Pals' I couldn't stop myself I had to make more!!

This challenge was so much fun that I needed to share with you how I was able to create multiple cards with some variations! 

This challenge inspired me to say 'congratulations'!   My first thought was the Playful Pals Stamp Set that can create many cute animals to make you smile and send the excitement that goes along with accomplishments! 

These cards were created  with ** Playful Pals Stamp Set and Thinlets for the cute owl.  The leaves and flower behind the cute owl was stamped with the ** Rose Wonder Stamp Set.  The mat was embossed with *Lovely Lace Textured Embossing Folder.  **Floral Affection Designer Series Paper was placed behind the owl panel.  The sentiments and tags were stamped with **Thoughtful Banner Bundle Stamp Set and **Duet Banner Punch. Stampin' Write Regal and In Color Markers for the details in the flowers and owl.  **Garden Green, Night of Navy, and Always Artichoke Stampin' Pads for the leaves and the sponging on the owl.
