Time to purr-ty

Hi everyone,

I have a card to share today that I am entering in the Newton's Nook Inky Paws Color Challenge #91 where the theme is to use the colours white, gray, black and pink. Details can be found on their blog here.

Here's my card.

I started by blending the colours onto a piece of cardstock using Newton's Nook Confetti stencil.
Once I was finished with that I used a rounded rectangle die from Hero Arts to cut out my panel.
I set that aside and went onto to stamping and copic colouring my kitty with pinks and greys.

I rounded the corners on the card base and ink blended the edges with Distress ink and then added my panel with foam tape.

I foam mounted the kitty image to my card and stamped the sentiment and embossed with white embossing powder.

Added some sequins and some white gel pen accents and that completes my card.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Caffeinated Cats

Hi everyone,

Today I have 2 cards that I created using Newton's Nook Designs Caffeinated Cats and various products from other companies.

For my first card I stamped the image and heat embossed with white embossing powder. I ran the piece through my diecutting machine to add a border to the card.

I then went on to water colouring the image with Inktense Watercolour ink pencils and added shading around the image with a light grey colour.

I mounted the piece onto a card base to which I had adhered a piece of black and white polka dot paper. Stamped the sentiment and white heat embossed. Added the sentiment to my card with foam tape and added some crystals to finish the card.

For my second card I blended Distress Oxide ink to a die cut panel and stamped the image with black ink. The sentiment was stamped in black ink onto a die cut piece using a Sunny Studio Stamp circle die.
Mounted the whole panel with foam tape to a card base to which I had adhered a piece of turquoise cardstock.

Well that's it for my cards and thanks so much for stopping by.

Bunny joy

Hi everyone,

Today I have a card using some Distress Oxide inks, Neat and Tangled's Geometric Circles Stencil and the cute Bubble Over With Joy stamp and die set from My Favorite Things. I just love this cute little set.
As the current Wednesday challenge over at Simon Says Stamp is 'Anything Goes' I will be adding my card. You can find details of their challenge here.

I started by diecutting my panel with a Simon Says Stamp stitched rectangle die. I then taped my stencil to it and blended the background with Squeezed Lemonade and Picked Raspberry.

I stamped the bunny and coloured with Copics. Stamped the sentiment from the same set directly to the card and added some enamel drops from Freckled Fawn.

Well that completes my card and thanks so much for stopping by.

Valentine cards

Hi everyone,

I have a few more Valentine cards to share just in time for this weeks' Simon Says Stamp 'Have a Heart' Wednesday challenge which can be found on their blog here and also for Simon Says Stamp Flickr challenge #115 where the theme is 'All My Love'.

For my first card I used a floral stamp set from Studio Katia and some gold embossing powder. I applied distress ink and blended it in.

My second card uses MFT die-namics with Neenah desert storm cardstock for the frame. I blended two different distress inks for the base of the card and die cut Lawn Fawn hearts in red, ink and gold sparkle cardstock. I die cut the xoxo with red cardstock and applied to the centre.

For my third card I used a piece of patterned paper for the base and die cut the centre with an MFT circle shaker die and added shaker pieces cut from Shimmer Sheetz in pink and purple and added some clear confetti pieces. Die cut the hugs several times and glued them together. Added Nuvo shimmer pen over the die.

Hope you enjoyed these cards today and thanks so much for stopping by.

Love You

Hi eveyone,

Today I have another Valentine's Day card to share with you.  This card is also perfect for the current Simon Says Flickr challenge where the theme is 'All My Love'. I have also been busy making slider cards with some Lawn Fawn products which I will be sharing later.

I started off by die cutting my quilted background. As all of the little holes didn't quite cut all the way through I ended up by poking only select ones out from around the card leaving the centre piece intact and taping them down on the back side of the card so they wouldn't fall out later.

I layered the panel onto a red card base. I die cut the love sentiment from some red glitter cardstock and stamped the sentiment on a piece of black cardstock and then heat embossed it with white embossing powder.

Before adding my sentiments to the card I added some red paint splatters as I thought the centre was just too white.

I added my sentiments with some foam tape and then wrapped a piece of red and white twine across the top of my card.

Well that's it for this card and thanks so much for stopping by.
