For the first day of the reveals, we are showcasing Cat-itude Stamp Set, Paw Print Shaker Dies and the MEOW Stencil:

Cat-itude Stamp Set with paw Print Shaker Die

Here is my card:

I started out with an A2 size panel of Bristol smooth white card stock and ink blended some distress oxide inks.  I used the MEOW stencil and white embossing paste to add some texture to the card.

 

I used the Paw Print Shaker Die to die-cut some card stock, patterned paper and acetate sheet.  I assembled the shaker by adding some foam adhesive and used some pink sequins as my shaker element.  I adhered this piece onto my ink-blended panel.  To finish my design, I die-cut the word “meow” using the die from the Paw Print Shaker set on some glittered card stock and adhered this piece on top of the Paw Print shaker piece.  Here’s a closer look:

 

 

For my second card, I did most of the steps mentioned above but used Moonstone glimmer paste to add some texture.  I die-cut the Paw Print shaker with some colored card stock and stamped the sentiment using the Cat-itude stamp set.  This stamp set is a must-have for any cat-lovers!

 

 

To finish my design, I added some 6 mm Pink Heart Droplets by Kat Scrappiness.  Don’t  you just love the sentiments on this stamp set?  Here’s a closer look:

I am so IN-LOVE with this stamp set.  I am a dog/pet lover and when I saw this set, my heart just melted!   If hubby and I only have about about 5 acres of land, we will definitely own a dozen of dogs, 4 cats, a couple of chickens, a pigmy Llama, some guinea pigs and a Cockatoo.  Haha!   You can never have too much happy, indeed!

NNDWalkingWoofs1A

How I made the card:

  • stamp the images on Neenah solar white card stock and color the images in with alcohol markers.  I used my Spectrum Noir TriBlend markers and Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.
  • use my “handmade stencil” die-cut from the Sky Borders die to add the sky with some make-up brushes and light blue ink.

  • use another stencil from my stash to add the grass with some Mowed Lawn distress oxide ink.
  • stamp the sentiment on the card with some black ink.

Have a Grande Day with Miss Ink Stamps

It’s week 5 guest-designing for Miss Ink Stamps and for today’s card, I am showcasing the Java Joes stamp set and my Spectrum Noir TriBlend markers.  Here’s what the stamp set look like:

 

javajoes_540x

 

I started by stamping my images on some Neenah classic crest 110 lb. solar white card stock  with Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink (this is an alcohol-friendly ink).  I colored my images in with my Spectrum Noir TriBlend Markers.   I used my make-up brushes with my Clouds stencil to add the clouds on the background.  I masked the bottom and used my make-up brushes again to add the color to make it look like grass.   I added the “pebble stones” by drawing them using the Brown Grey Blend Triblend Markers.

Here’s a closer look at my card:

I hope you like my card today!  Next Saturday will be my last post for Miss Ink Stamps.  Have a great day and happy crafting!

Here’s my first card with the Newton’s Birdhouse stamp set:

NNDNewtonsBirdhouse1A

Here’s how I made my card:

  • stamp and color the image with Copic markers (or any coloring medium of your choice)
  • die-cut the image using the coordinating dies.
  • cut an A2 size of Bristol smooth white card stock and ink up the background with different distress oxide inks.

For my second project, I created a one-layer card using the Mother’s Day mini stamp set and some images from the Cottage Garden stamp set, with some pastel-color inks.

NNDMothersDay1A

I added glossy accents to the flower to give it a little shine and dimension.  I love creating backgrounds using small stamp sets.

NNDMothersDay1B

For my third project, I created another one-layer card using the Father’s Day stamp set and some images from the Tranquil Tides stamp set.

I really think the images on the Tranquil Tides stamp set went perfectly well with the Father’s Day mini stamp.  I finished my design by adhering starfishes with some foam adhesive and adding glossy accents to the card.
