I made a cute kitten card to for a dear friend:


Here's how I made the card:
I first traced a large letter C on a piece of white cardstock. The trace line would help me in aligning my flower patterns.


I created a couple of masks from a post-it note, and stamped leaves and flowers on the C shape using masking stamping technique.


Once the flower wreath was finished, I fuzzy cut it out.


Using a water brush and my craft mat as palette I colored the flowes with pink Memento ink.


I glued the flower wreath on a piece of patterned paper. Before gluing I added a hint of color on the paper using pink and purple Memento inks.

For highlighting my cute main kitten image I gently white washed the flowers with white gesso. The layer of paint is really thin, but it yet allows the main image to pop.


For coloring the kitten I used my Promarkers. 


I think the sentiment text is a perfect match to my floral background and the cutest kitten. Hope you like it, too!

For this project I used the following supplies:
Imagine: Memento Dew Drop 'Rose Bud, Lulu Lavender, Angel Pink, Tuxedo Black.
VersaFine Onyx Black

Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps: 'Kitty Fun', 'Feet Flower Large & Small', 'Friends Like Flowers'



Wishing you a wonderful day! Please join us again tomorrow!

Minions!

Hi!
There's still time to participate in Craft Stamper October blog challenge. 'Anything goes', as long as you use stamping somewhere on your project.
This month the prize for one lucky winner is AMAZING:
A Sizzix Scoreboards XL die: Wrapped Journal by Eileen Hull! Worth playing for, isn't it!


My October project is a card with Minions! Aren't these stamps by So Suzy Stamps just acorable!

Minions card

I started with stamping, coloring, and fuzzy cutting lots of piping parts:


I inked the background, splashed water on the ink, dried with my heat gun, and glued the pipings on the card:


I stamped and fuzzy cut my Minions, and as their hair were impossible to cut out, I re-stamped the images on the card front. Then the last remaining step was to glue the fuzzy cut images on top:


Minions card

This card makes me smile. Hope it will bring a smile to your face, too!

Colourful ATC's

Hi!
Sharing with you a set of ATC's I made a short while back. They were actually made for a live swap, but as I missed that event I kept them for an international ATC swap that was taking place right after.
I hope they have now all reached their new owners, so I'm sharing them in my blog now :)


When creating I took work-in-progress photos and wrote a picture tutorial; you can read it in Viva Las VegaStamps! blog *here*

Hope these colourful cards brighten your day :)

Thanks for stopping by,
