Hi crafty friends!
Beata June here and I’m so thrilled to be guest designing for Gerda Steiner Designs! I’m stopping by to share a card I made featuring the new Cats and Boxes clear stamp set.
Congrats on your new place!
To make this card I used the masking technique to make a pile of boxes. First, I stamped the entire image of the kitty inside the box using a Gina K. obsidian amalgam ink pad onto the top of a piece of white cardstock.
Then stamped out my image on a post-its, cut it out and placed it over my stamped image. Then I positioned the stamp under (I find using a clear post-it helps when I am trying to position my stamp in case there is ink residue left on my stamp), and stamped so that just the box stamped onto my paper.
I continued this process until I had a stack of boxes underneath my kitty.
Then I colored with copic markers and cut out the stack of boxes.
Copic colors used:
Kitty: C00, C0, C1, C2, C3, RV10, RV11, E04
Boxes: E40, E41, E42, E43, E44
Next, I blended a piece of white cardstock (4.25” x 5.5”) with Ranger Ink Chipped Sapphire and Blueprint Sketch distress oxide inks using a blender brush and splattered it with water. Then I cut a piece of patterned paper (4.25” x 4.25”) and glued it on top of the blended cardstock. Then I added little paw prints onto the patterned paper.
I heat embossed the sentiment to the bottom using a clear ultra slow drying WOW! Embossing pad and white embossing powder. Then I glued my kitty and stack of boxes to the middle of my card above the sentiment. Lastly, I added white highlights to my colored images using a white gel pen.
Here’s another look at my card:
Isn’t this kitty the cutest???
Thank you so much for following along!
