I started out by stamping out the Christmas Kitty with Memento Tuxedo Black ink (a Copic friendly ink) with my Tim Holtz Stamp Platform, then colored the kitty with Copic markers. I inserted the colored image back into the Stamp Platform and inked it with Versafine Onyx Black ink, and stamped it again. This ink is an embossing ink and is tacky enough to hold embossing powder, and it really blackens the lines that I had colored over when I colored the image with Copics. I sprinkled on Clear embossing powder and heat set it. Then, I rolled on some Clear Mark Pen (embossing pen ink) onto the lights and made sure I went "outside" the lines of the lights, and sprinkled on Sparkle embossing powder and heat set it. This made the lights glow a little bit more. So much fun!
I created a Z-fold panel card, and stamped the Crystal Snowflake stamps onto the panels, using Versamark ink. I sprinkled on Robins Egg embossing powder and heat set it. I also stamped out the light bulbs, colored them, and rolled on more Clear Mark Pen embossing ink and then added more Sparkle embossing powder and heat set them. I also ink blended some blue inks onto the panels to give the cardstock some depth of color and make them "cooler" to match the theme.
To top the Z-fold panels, I die cut out Emerald Green and Satin Effect mirror cardstocks using the Tonic Christmas Header Fold Tangled Holly die, and my Tonic Tangerine machine. I layered these together and layered them above the Z-fold panels.
I also stamped out the sentiment with Versamark ink and sprinkled on Gold Coast embossing powder and heat set it. I die cut the sentiment and more Emerald Green mirror cardstock using Tonic's Mixed Edge Oval Layering Basics Die Set and layered these together and adhered it over the front of the card.

I am a total sucker for any critter in a string of lights, and this Christmas Kitty stamp set is totally fun. I know you will love it and I can't wait to see what you create with it!
Thanks for stopping by. Have a magical day!
