Hello everyone. I’m back today with my second entry for the MFT Stamps 2016 Card Design Superstar. I was traveling for a week and managed to have Internet connection to look at all the beautiful designs that everyone has posted so far. It is very intimidating to compete with these amazing card designers but I really wanted to give it a shot. Even if I lose, I figured I would at least gain some traffic at my blog or inspire someone to look outside the box and create a project that is quite unique. If you have been following me for a while, you know that I love to stretch my stamps.
I wanted to create a funny anniversary card but this is also a perfect card for a cat owner! If you have a cat, you know the struggle of having a wild kitty around the house!
Ever since I got the cool cats stamp set, I had this idea in my head for one of the cat images but I wasn’t so sure if my ideas would somehow work. Today, I looked at all of my MFT stamps and dies and decided to just go for it. It’s so much fun to mix and match the sets. It took me awhile to finish the card but I am happy with the result.
Here is the photo of the card.
For the “torn wallpaper”, I used the Homespun stitched die-namics to create the zigzag pattern, and used my scissors to partially cut it out. I wanted it to look like the naughty cat had accidentally torn the wallpaper, and managed to also knock the painting off the wall. Isn’t it hilarious?
Here are the supplies that I’ve used:
Santa’s Elves stamp set (used for the sentiment of the naughty cat inside the speech bubble)
Make Yourself At Home stamp set
Make Yourself at home dienamics
I knead You dienamics (the speech bubble)
Watercolor wash 6 x 6 paper pad
I hope you like the card that I designed today. Wish me luck! Have an amazing weekend!
