Hang in There – Clean & Simple Card with The Rabbit Hole Designs

Hello The Rabbit Hole Designs fans!  For the past few months, I have been making a lot of very-detailed handmade cards with scenes up the wazoo and I figured sometimes I just need a break from that and create some clean and simple (CAS) cards.  After all, less is more, right?!

For today’s project, I am showcasing the We are Family stamp set.

Here’s my card:

TRHDHangInThereKite1A

Here’s how I made the card:

  • Stamp the kite image on smooth white card stock and color the images in with Copic markers (or any medium of your choice).
  • Die-cut the image with an electronic die-cutting machine or fussy cut with scissors.  I used my Brother Scan N Cut 2.
  • Cut an A2 size piece of smooth white card stock and use the Kites Embossing folder to dry-emboss the background.
  • Die-cut the “Hang In There” sentiment on some black card stock. Die-cut the same on some fun foam and adhere this piece on the black card stock.
  • Adhere the sentiment on the embossed background.
  • Adhere the kite with some liquid adhesive.
  • Finish the design by using Sakura white gel pen to add some lines and dot to the kite.

Here’s a closer look:

This card is super simple, but I really love how it turned out.   I hope you like my card and got inspired.  The supplies I used are listed and linked below.  Have an amazing day and happy crafting!

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.

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:

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!

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).
