Joy! Joy! Joy!

October 12, 2018

Hi there! Cathy here with a card using the adorable new Carol Kittens stamp set.

I wanted these little kitties wearing my favorite color, 
so I went with a non-traditional color scheme on this one.


I started by die-cutting a piece of watercolor cardstock using a stitched rectangle die from MFT. I stamped and masked the kittens and inked a soft background using Angel Pink Memento ink and a cloud stencil.

I stamped the Joy sentiment from this set in Versamark and heat embossed with white embossing powder to give them a snowy look. To make them stand out a little bit, I traced around the letters with a gray colored pencil.

I colored the kittens with Prismacolor pencils and then cut a straight line on each side and fussy cut around the bottom of them.



I die-cut a patterned paper using the same stitched rectangle die and then adhered the watercolor piece to the top.

To finish it off, I stamped a Lawn Fawn banner stamp on a teal watercolor patterned paper, fussy cut around it and matted it on black cardstock. The "TO THE WORLD" stamp in the Carol Kittens set fit perfectly inside this banner!

I heat embossed the sentiment in WOW! Long Island Teal embossing powder. It's got a nice sparkle to it and hint of gold.

These kittens are too cute, but I'll bet they sound terrible!

Hope you enjoyed and see you soon!

Cathy

When I first saw this set I thought how great it would be for fall. The wheels in my mind started turning with ideas of cards colored in oranges, browns and reds. But this set can be stretched right into the winter season!

I colored this owl with shades of gray copic markers and then drew the...
