Happy Labor Day! It’s time again for CASE the Catalog Monday.
This week two unused stamp sets on my craft room shelf were used to recreate the card on page 31 in the Annual Catalog. The card features Bella & Friends and the Pretty Kitty stamp sets on page 30. These two stamp sets contain some great sentiments and have perfect images to create cards for all ages – especially for animal lovers too! Check out the details below on how to recreate this card.
Talk about loads of fun…first stamp images with StazOn ink onto Whisper White cardstock (4 -1/4″ x 3″). To color the images, use watercolor pencils and blender pens. The card base is Crumb Cake cardstock and a top piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the Neutrals 6″ x 6″ DSP Collection (5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″). Highlight the stamped and colored image layer by adding a layer of Coastal Cabana cardstock (4-1/2″ x 3-1/4″) . After stamping the sentiment, embellish with a heart from the Frame Elements and a bow of White Baker’s Twine.
Since it was such enjoyment coloring the card, I decided to use another of the images from the Pretty Kitten stamp set. The following card is ready to send to a friend.
First stamp the “peeking in” image with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and color with Stampin’ Blends. Colors are Granny Apple Green, Rich Razzleberry, Smoky Slate, Crumb Cake and Pumpkin Pie. Basic Black cardstock creates the card base and the Share What You Love DSP layer pulls the card together. Using Layering Circles Thinlits, cut the image piece and the layering Basic Black cardstock pieces. Finally, attach to upper portion of card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Tie 1/2″ Black Satin Ribbon around card at seam of DSP to complete the card.
