Card with Catitude!

Hi crafty people! Just a quick post to share a card I made for the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers which is on I for Inks. I used distress oxide in abandoned coral and a paw print stencil to create a patterned circle. The larger circle was made to match by blending the ink around the edge of the die cut circle.

I stamped one of these cats with catitude, coloured with alcohol inks and fussy cut him out. The sentiment I used came from this Taylored Expressions set.

I added the image to the circle panels, stamped the base card and then added some nuvo drops as a finishing touch.

I hope my grumpy cat made you smile! Have a lovely evening.

Aud Sentiments Challenge 253

Hi crafty people!  I hope you are doing well today.  There is a new challenge over at the Aud Sentiments Challenge and it’s an anything goes one so everyone can join in no matter what you are making!

Blog badge (1)

This time we are sponsored by Oddball Art Co by Lizzy Love and they have very generously offered a $10 gift certificate for the winner of the challenge.

I was lucky to be gifted the Monday Mornings Frazzled Fran needs her coffee digi stamp.  I printed the full page version twice, once on white card stock and once on spotty patterned paper.

I coloured Fran using watercolour pencils (although I didn’t blend the hair at all, just built up 3 different colours in hair strands)  I fussy cut out the mug and glued it onto the white card version and added one of the three sentiments.  I then fussy cut out the whole thing (just as well I love fussy cutting!).

Once I had done this I realised I didn’t have a card base big enough (oops!) so I folded an a 4 card in half and added some patterned papers from my stash.  I added a mat across the card to support the cup handle.

Stand Tall by Catherine Pooler Designs

Hi crafty people, I hope you are all doing ok during these troubling times. I don’t really want to talk about everything going on but I am trying my best to listen to the black people and learn from their experiences about how I can be a better supporter to help change happen.

Anyway I’m back with my second blog post in a day which is unusal for me, but I have a very good reason! I am delighted to share that for the month of June I am a guest design team member for the Little Paper Tree .

Today over on their blog my first post is up, so you can head over there to see one of my projects. I am here to share another fun card using the stamp set the kindly gifted me which is Stand Tall by Catherine Pooler Designs.

For this card I started by making an inky background using some distress oxides and distress inks. I used one of the stamps in the set to build up some reeds around the water which I think started to add some dimension.

I stamped both of the flamingos in archive black ink and coloured them with picked raspberry distress ink and a waterbrush before fussy cutting them out. I added some ripples to the water with another stamp in the set and popped the flamingos into the scene. I added some layers behind the scene and then glued it onto a card base which I had folded to create an easel card.

Inside the card I stamped the zig zag line using picked raspberry distress oxide. The sentiment was also stamped in this ink before adding some mats and layers and popped up on 3d pads.

I hope you like my card today and that you will check out my guest post at The Little Paper Tree blog today. There will be a few more designs with this set over at my instagram too.
