Darling Donkeys, Art Gallery, 2021 Stampin' Up! Sale-a-Bration and Spring Catalog

Today I found a cute "Darling Donkey" card on Pinterest.  It used some of the "Ombre" Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the 2021 Sale-a-Bration catalog.  I jumped at the opportunity to make this card because my package of DSP is pretty full.

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock.  On top of that is a 4-1/8" x 5-3/8" piece of Rococo Rose card stock that was textured using the "Ornate Floral" embossing folder. I love the little flowers on that folder. They are so dainty and can be used for several occasions, like a wedding, anniversary, birthday, thinking of you, get well, sympathy and Mother's Day cards. I usually glue my embossed pieces in place, especially when there is a lot of texture. Sometimes the tape just doesn't seem to stick enough with sporadic contact surfaces. 

The Basic White layer piece was cut at 4-5/8" x 3-1/2" and the DSP was cut at 4-1/2" x 3-3/8". I added a piece of white ribbon around the DSP and taped it to the back. I first used double sided so I can get the piece in place and then I add scotch tape to hold the piece in place. After adding the ribbon those two pieces were taped together and then taped on top of the embossed Rococo Rose piece.

The donkey from the "Darling Donkey's" set was stamped using black Memento ink. Then it was colored in using the light and dark Gray Granite Blends pens. The flower was colored in using the light Flirty Flamingo Blends pen. The inside of the ears and muzzle were colored in using the light Petal Pink Blends pen and the stem and leaf were colored in using the Light Granny Apple Green Blends pen.  Once the coloring was done I used the largest "Stitched Oval" die to cut him out.  He was set in place using Dimensionals. 

The words are from the "Art Gallery" set and were stamped using black Memento ink on a 5/8" x 2-1/8" piece of Rococo Rose card stock. They were set in place using Dimensionals on the right and double-sided tape on the left.

A bow was tied and attached to the lower left of the oval, across the ribbon and the card was done.

This was a very quick and easy card to make. I love the look of the DSP and I was glad I got to use some. This would also be pretty in the other colors of DSP in the package. 

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop by and see what I did today,                                Wanda
