Cat to be Kitten



Hello and thanks for stopping by! 
My card share today features one of the Picket Fence Studios kitties, Olivia Kitten. 

To create this card I started with a white top folding card base, a black panel and a white panel cut down a half an inch smaller than the base.
I stamped Olivia Kitten in our black Hybrid ink and the using the 2 1/2 inch blending stencil and the Life Changing blending brushes I made her a head.  
Next I used the Random Dots stencil with the Blending Brushes to give her some dimension. To add a subtle pink to her ears I used one of the smallest LC Blending Brushes and Baby Pink ink by Altenew.
To finish the card I added the sentiment at the bottom. This one is going to a friend that I missed sending her a birthday card.

To create my my card I started with a white top folding card base and a white panel. I used the Dotted Fill-In stamp set and the Birdie Talk dies, both by Concord & 9th.  To create the background, I inked up the polka dot background in Sweet Corn ink by Gina K Designs and then also added the dots along the edge using the same set. I used the Gina K Designs Stitched ovals as the focal panel for the birdie. I used the MISTI to stamp the greeting which is from the Feathered stamp set also by Concord & 9th

Cut Out For Greatness



Hello sweet friends! 
Thanks for stopping by, I am still having fun guesting for Gina K Designs. 
My card today uses the Crafty Notes set but in a different way. Graduation is just around the corner if you have a May graduate and this sentiment makes a perfect graduation card, even better if they are graduating from cosmotology school, right?

I am entering this one in the challenge at CAS on Friday of Embossing.





To create this card I started with a white top folding card base and a panel of black layering card stock for the mat and then a white panel for the focal panel.
I randomly stamped the scissors all over the panel, colored them with Copic markers and then used the Crystalline drops to make them shiny.
For the greeting I used a black piece of card stock cut to 2" square and embossed the greeting in silver. I created a tassel and attached it to the center

Scripture Crosses


I am up on the Sweet 'n Sassy blog today with these two cards featuring one of our new releases, Scripture Crosses

For my first sample (above) I started with a white top folding card base and another panel of white card stock.  I created the rainbow background by blending pink, blue, and yellow with a Life Changing Blending brush.  After I covered the piece of card stock, I stamped the Scripture cross using Versafine Clair ink.



For my second sample (below) I also started with a white top folding card base and a white panel of card stock and a panel of faux wood patterned paper.
I stamped the scripture cross using Versamark ink and embossed it with white embossing powder. Next I used the Life Changing Blending Brushes to add the brown and the popped it on a piece of faux wood patterned paper.

An Old Favorite




It's time for a new game at AAA Cards, I hope you will play along with us. Our sponsor is Craftyscrappers with a $20 gift certificate to be spent on stamps in their store.


For my card I used an oldie but goodie set by Altenew, Best Mom.
I started with a white top folding card base. I used Gina K ink Soft Stone ink along with the Life Changing Blending Brushes and a stencil by Picket Fence Studios to create the background.
 I stamped the floral image from the Best Mom set on another piece of yardstick, cut it out with the coordinating dies and then colored it using Copic Markers and then added it to the card front. Using the Misti I added the greeting to finish the card.

Green!



It's time for a new challenge at Addicted to CAS and our code word is ....


With St. Patrick's day tomorrow I had to use these new releases by Picket Fence Studios. I just love the attitude of BFF Ava girl, I can hear her saying that sentiment.

To create this card I started with a white top folding card base and a white panel cut down with a stitched die. I used some purple tape to mask off a diagonal strip and then stamped the Classic Houndstooth in Lucky Clover by Gina K. I also stamped her purse using that same stamp I just colored over it with a Copic marker.  
Next I stamped BFF Ava on a separate piece of card stock, cut her out using the coordinating die and then colored her using Copic Markers. To finish the card I added her and the greeting.

I placed the panel in the MISTI and inked it up in rainbow order and then spritzed it with water.


The second card uses an older set I am a Mermaid and a new released stencil, Scales. To create this card I started with a white top folding card base.
