Well the hot weather has turned and it’s a lot more pleasant temperature for playing in my craft room today.
First up is a card using a stamp set called ‘Catitude’ I got with a crafting magazine and I’m entering it into the current challenge at the Little Red Wagon which is all about purrs and wags.
I kept the card CAS, colouring the cat image with my Stampin Blends, added a strip of gold glitter paper and black and white stripe DSP to the edge before mounting it on a black card base.
I love how cute this card is and can’t wait to play with the other cat stamps in this set.
Next up is a technique card that I’m entering for the following challenges:
- The Male Room Challenge #100 – Celebrate
- MUSE Card Club Challenge #293 – Anything Goes
- Just Add Ink #437 – Use ‘I’ on a card
- CAS Mix Up December – Emboss Resist
- CAS Christmas December – Star
I stamped my sentiments and heat embossed in black (my celebrate part being Christmas sentiments), then stamped a few stars and heat embossed in Lindy’s Stamp Gang ‘Angel Wings Gold’ (my emboss resist and stars part); then I sponged Catherine Pooler Design inks in Stone Blue, Juniper Mist, Daydream and Midnight onto a masked panel to create a night sky and flicked some water droplets (my ‘I’ part being inky).
The stars are really shimmery gold IRL. I haven’t tried many night sky backgrounds but think this one worked out pretty well.
This next card is for the CAS-ual Fridays current challenge which is a photo inspiration challenge.
I was inspired by the trees in the ornament and decided to use a new stamp set by Kaiser Craft ‘Sparkle’ I received from my friend Michelle for Christmas. The sentiment is also a Kaiser Craft one from the “Christmas Wishes’ set. I inked up 3 trees using my Kaleidacolor ‘Caribbean Sea’ ink, which gives such great colour blending to my card. I stamped the sentiment in basic black over the top. I really love how this card came out.
I’m now off to make some Christmas shortbread
