Dress Up Your Pet Day - All About Love

Today is National 'Dress Up Your Pet Day' and it's also one month ahead of Valentines Day. And because of that (its proximity to Valentines Day), I'm hopping with some other demonstrators around the world to celebrate love.

I also thought this is a great way to combine the two themes and share my Darling Donkey project with a dressed up donkey ;)

Dress Up Your Pet Day was started not just to have fun with your pets, but also to support the pet fashion community in a fun way. Personally, I think it's a good opportunity to dress up your Pampered Pets, Darling Donkeys, or other animal stamps with hats, sweaters, or other fashion accessories, don't you think? :D

To put the flower crown on the Darling Donkey, I created a mask. It was also a perfect time to use the Stamparatus to ensure that the placement of all stamp layers and the mask were perfectly placed.

To create the mask, I first stamped the flower image onto a sticky note (making sure that it was mostly on the actual sticky part). Then I fussy cut the stamped image out.

I then determined exactly where I wanted the flower crown to lay, and used the Stamparatus to place the sticky note onto the white cardstock. Once that was in place, I could stamp the donkey. And then lastly, I lifted the sticky note off before stamping the last layer (the flower crown). 

Now it’s time to hop around and stop by the rest of my fellow demonstrators' blogs to see some more inspiration celebrating love. 

See the rest of the hoppers below:
From now until February 28, for every $60 and $120 you spend, you’ll earn an exclusive Sale-A-Bration item for free! Depending on the amount you spend, you’ll be able to mix ‘n’ match the Sale-A-Bration items you earn. The Darling Donkey stamp set and the Oh So Ombre Designer Series Paper used on my project are both available as freebies to choose from when you spend $60.


  1. TOTALLY adorable! I love your idea and need to think about this with the donkey and the chickens... who knows, even the goats. I wish I had made it here earlier so that I could have informed the kiddos about dress up your pet day. One has a bigger dog who loves to wear his PJ's.

    1. Oh yeah, definitely the goats! I must say I've used that Sale-A-Bration stamp 'Put your party pants on' from a few years ago a few times to dress up some animals. Remember the llama? I think they should still dress up the dog in PJs, cause pets don't know what day it is ;)

  2. So cute! Your card brought a smile to my face.

  3. This made me smile, thanks for sharing x

  4. Love your card, and good insight on use of Stamparatus too.
