It's Jess here today with my final post of 2018! I used the Kitty Celebrates Rubber stamp to create this super sweet handmade card. Let me show you how I created it.
Kitty Celebrates Rubber Stamp 926
Nuvo Aqua Flow Pens - Assorted Sets
Nuvo Craft Perfect Paper - Hailstorm 9803e
Nuvo Crystal Drops Metallic Caramel Cream 692N
Madagascar Green EP357
Nuvo Crystal Drops - Morning Dew 677N
Priceles Peacock Glitter G1015
1/4" Tear-ific Tape SAT01
Nuvo Watercolor Pencils - Brilliantly Vibrant 520N
Dark Chocolate Flocking FL104
Nuvo Medium Glue Pen 203N
Step 1 - create your focal image
I stamped the sweet kitty onto a piece of white cardstock and colored with the Nuvo Watercolor Pencils. I wanted to add a little texture to the kitty, so I added some Dark Chocolate Flocking to his tail using the Medium Nuvo Glue Pen.
To make my balloons - I actually "doctored up" my rubber stamp by cutting the balloons from the kitty! SO - if I wanted to use them together still, I can! I stamped them 3 times, then colored with my Aqua Flow Pens. Once it was all dry, I fussy cut out the kitty and the balloons.
Step 2 - Create the Background
For the background, I die cut some of the Hailstorm Craft Perfect Paper using a layered die set. I wanted some sparkle around it, so I used the next size up to die cut a piece of sticker paper, then sprinkled on the Priceless Peacock Glitter, burnishing well with my finger tool. I adhered the layers together using 1/4" Tear-ific Tape.
Step 3 - Assemble & Embellish
I chose a fun, retro patterned paper for my background, then added my layers. I stamped my sentiment with Versamark ink and embossed with Madagascar Green Embossing Powder, To some of the balloons I added some of the Morning Dew Crystal Drops to make them shiny and add some unexpected texture.
Finally, some of the Caramel Cream Crystal Drops were added to embellish and I tied a gold string from the balloons to the kitty!
I love how this card turned out - I hope you do too! See you really soon - as in next "year" (hehehe).
