Yep, I’m another year older today! So what’s a gal to do on her birthday? Craft of course!
My first card today is for the Less is More challenge to use pets on a card.
My card emulates the look on my cat Oscar’s face this morning, where he was like ‘what? it’s not all about me today?’ He’s a funny ginger boy who thinks the household revolves around him – but not today buddy boy!
I stamped an image from Katzelkraft and water coloured him in to look like Oscar, I then created my sentiments on my PC and used speech bubble dies to highlight them. I kept it very CAS on a black card base and the card was done.
Next up is a card for the CAS Christmas challenge. I love challenges that inspire me to add to my Christmas card stash – I think I now have about 20 cards towards my 100 requirement.
I used a stamp set from Altenew called ‘Sketched evergreen” which I stamped in Catherine Pooler inks in Melon Ice, Garden Party and Lime Rickey. I cut a thinner panel with the tree on it, slightly shaping my panel around the tree edge and mounted it on a bit of gold cardstock.
I love this stamp set and will be making more cards for my stash with it.
Well that’s it for today, I’m now off to watch the Melbourne Vixens netball team with Miss K.
Thanks for looking and have a great day.
