NNDGardenMice1A

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.
  • cover a piece of some Bristol smooth white card stock with some painter’s tape.  (This card stock measured 3 1/4 x 5 1/2).
  • use the Bokeh Stencil Set to ink up the card stock.  I used Fossilized Amber distress oxide ink with my mini-ink blending tool.
  • use some stitched and arrow border dies to create the impression on the colored background.
  • adhere this piece on some A2 size side-folding card base.
  • adhere some black and white patterned paper on the side.
  • adhere the mouse on the card using some foam adhesive.
  • stamp the sentiment with Versafine onyx black ink.

Here’s a closer look:

Caffeinated Cat with The Rabbit Hole Designs

Good morning my crafty peeps!  I am so excited to share with you today’s post.  I am so pleased and honored to announce that I have joined the The Rabbit Hole Designs design team. Yay!  Here’s the photo of the announcement the other day!

img_2159

The Rabbit Hole Designs is a new stamp company.  They have recently launched a couple of stamp sets and I ordered a few of them because I fell in love with the design.  For my card below, I am showcasing the Caffeinated Cat 3×4 stamp set.   When I saw this stamp, I knew I just had to have it.  Honestly, what is not to love?  I adore cats, I love coffee and I love being a mom!  Okay to be honest I used to feel like this cat when my kids were little, haha! and I had a full-time job too!  I don’t even know how I survived those days; I guess I had lots and lots of coffee!

Here’s how I made the card

  • Stamp the image on Neenah solar white card stock (or any card stock you have in  stock) with alcohol friendly ink.
  • Color the image with alcohol markers (or any coloring medium of your choice).
  • Either fussy-cut or die-cut the image using an electronic die-cutting machine. For mine, I used my Scan N Cut 2.
  • Die-cut a piece of Neenah solar white card stock using the wood/floors dies and ink it up with gathered twigs distress oxide ink to make it look like wooden panels.
  • Cut another piece of white card stock and use embossing folder to create the “wallpaper”.
  • Adhere the floor, the moulding and the “wallpaper” on an A2 size card base.  Cut the excess.
  • Die-cut the little decorative frame and little bows on some colored card stock and stamp the sentiment and image on both. Adhere the frames with liquid glue.
  • Adhere the Caffeinated Cat image (ahem, star of the show!) in the middle of the card with foam adhesive to give it dimension.
  • Add the heart embellishment on the coffee cup.
  • Add Sparkling clear jewels and bow on the decorative frame to finish the design.

trhdcaffeinatedcat1a

Everything about this cat just makes me giggle!   The tired look on her face, the bunny slippers and the robe!   I think we can all relate.  Here’s a closer look:

trhdcaffeinatedcat1b

That cat wallpaper just added more cuteness to the whole design, don’t you agree?  The mom cat looked tired but her house is spotless!

trhdcaffeinatedcat1c

What do you think of my card?  Does it make you want to have a cup of coffee?  I hope you like my project today.  The supplies I used are listed and linked below.  Note: if you are looking to purchase the Cat Embossing folder, they will be available at Kat Scrappiness next week (she is restocking them).

You’re Sassy, Classy & Pretty Bad Assy!

Hello Cas-ual Fridays stamp fans!  I was pretty giddy creating this card I’m sharing with today showcasing a LOT of products from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps.  I used one of my all-time favorite stamp set called Frankly’isms with the Cup of Coffee stamp set and Coffee Cup Fri-Dies and the Scallop Tags Fri-Dies.

Here’s what I used:

 

I started out by stamping the Coffee Cup image on a gingham patterned paper and die cut the same with the Cup of Coffee Fri-Die.   I die-cut the tags using the Scallop Tags Fri-Dies with vellum and patterned paper. I ran the vellum tag on a hearts embossing folder to give it more dimension. I adhered both tags using mini glue dots.

On a piece of Bristol smooth white card stock, I used a stencil from my stash to add some color to the background with distress oxide inks.  I sprayed it with water to get the oxidize effect.

I adhered the tags onto my colored background.  I stamped the sentiment onto the “coffee cup” and adhered this piece on top of the tags.

 

To finish the design, I added the bow on top of the tag and also added some brown jewels to make them look like coffee bubbles.

Here’s a closer look:

 

Don’t you just LOVE the sentiment?  If you love coffee as much as I do, I think that sentiment is perfect!  I also added some white highlights using my Sakura gel pen.  I LOVE those brown jewels! They just added a little bit more “oomph” to the whole card design, don’t you think?!  Here’s another look:

 

I hope you like my card today.  Don’t forget that you can use my coupon code below to get 15% off your order.  Check out the $5 or less stamps and dies available now before they get sold out.  Happy crafting!
