Today I’m sharing a card featuring Sweet Möma “Miaumaid” stamp. This is the cutest mermaid cat I’ve ever seen! When I saw it I immediately fell in love and I was super lucky because the same release day I could purchase it in my local scrapbook store.
First, I stamped the image on a piece of Neenah paper using Memento Tuxedo black ink, masking her arms and stamping the shell to make her a bra 😀 Next, I colored it using alcohol markers. I colored some scales with a gold gel pen and then added Wink of Stella on the tail and on the shells.
I wanted to make a star-shaped card, so, using Lawn Fawn “Puffy Star” dies, I die cut two stars from Bristol paper, one from white cardstock and one more from vellum. To make the sea, I used Mama Elephant “Ocean Waves Trio” dies on one of the Bristol paper stars as well as on the vellum one. I inked the background star with Salty Ocean, and the ocean one with Peacock Feathers Distress Ink.
For the sentiment, I used Lawn Fawn “Scripty Thanks” die on black cardstock and also on Simon Says Stamp Glimmery cardstock. I glued the two die cuts slightly offset and then adhered them to the vellum piece so I could add glue behind the sentiment to adhere it on top of the wavy panel. Next, I added that panel to the background star-shaped panel and added some clouds I had die cut using Lawn Fawn “Simple Puffy Cloud Frames” dies. Last, I used an action wobble to glue the mermaid kitty.
Today I’m sharing a couple of snow globe shaped cards but instead of Christmasy, they are fall and Halloweeny ones. I used Lawn Fawn “Ready, Set, Snow” add-on dies, which are great for shaker cards!
First, let’s take a look at the fall themed shaker.
I used Lawn Fawn and Simon Says Stamp Stamptember collaboration stamp, “Nutty or Nice”. I fell in love with this stamp set and I wanted to use it not only for Christmas cards. I colored the images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and fussy cut them. By the way, the branch is from Lawn Fawn “Home Sweet Home” stamp set and the sentiment from Lawn Fawn “Ready, Set Shake” stamp set.
I used “Ready, Set, Snow” add-on dies on watercolor paper and inked the pieces with Scattered Straw and Wild Honey Distress inks. For the snow globe base, I used kraft cardstock. I stamped the “Woodgrain Backdrop” stamp with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and then used Walnut Stain Distress ink to darken the edges. Finally, I added the leaves to the shaker, for which I used Mama Elephant “Birch Trees” dies.
Now, let’s check the Halloween themed card.
For this shaker, I used Mama Elephant “Meowlloween Extras” stamp set. I colored the images with Zigs and fussy cut everything. That was a lot of fussy cutting!! But totally worth it, because I love the candy corn as shaker element. I used Mama Elephant “Picket Fence” die on black cardstock to add a spooky fence and inked the scene with Dusty Concord and Seedless Preserves Distress inks.
I stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink and heat embossed it using gold embossing powder. Last, I added all the small pieces of candy corn and closed the shaker.
I’m entering this last card into SHC VIP’s October Challenge: Shades of Halloween.
I hope you like this project! Thanks for stopping by!!
Today I’m sharing a card featuring Mama Elephant “Favor Bag Accessory – Cat” dies. If you have read my blog before, you know I’m a cat person and that I love anything with cats on it. I made this card for some friends who love cats as well, so I tried to make a portrait of their cat Mia.
I partial die cut the cat shape, because I wanted it to be longer, not just the cat head but also her neck. I die cut all the pieces from Canson Mi-Teintes cardstock because I love the colors and the texture it has, and I think is perfect for adding something to this cat! The bow is from Mama Elephant “All Prettied Up” dies. At this moment it has repositionable glue 🙂
I use Lawn Fawn “Stitched Ovals” to die cut the background panel shape and I stamped a pattern using Waffle Flower “Pattern Play” stamps and Versacraft mint ink. Once I had stamped the panel, I thought the color was too bright so I die cut a vellum oval with the same die to make the color softer. I glued the edge of the vellum piece to the pattern piece and then I adhered the red frame I made nesting to oval dies. Last, I spelled the cat’s name using Neat and Tangled “Journaling Alphas” dies.
So, what do you think? Do you prefer the cat in a bow tie or with the bow on her ear?
I hope you like this project. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
