For Day 2, we are showcasing the Smitten Kittens stamp set and coordinating dies along with two new Slimline Masking Stencils.

To make my first card, I started by die-cutting the scallop from the Slimline Frames & Portholes die set with some Bristol smooth white card stock.  I also die-cut the white frame from the Slimline Frames & Windows die set and foam-mounted this piece to the scallop die-cut.  Next, I used the Slimline Square Masking Stencil to add some colors on the boxes with some distress oxide inks in Worn Lipstick, Mermaid Lagoon and Mustard Seed.

Next, I stamped the images from the Smitten Kittens stamp set and colored them in with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.  I die-cut the images using the coordinating dies and foam-mounted the mages onto my card panel for added dimension.

I cut a Slimline card panel and adhered some pink card stock, then added the focal panel onto the card.  I stamped the sentiment with some Versafine Onyx Black ink.

I finished my design by adhering some hearts for more texture.  Here’s another look:
