Blank Page Muse and Cat Lovers Hop

Hi everyone! Blank Page Muse and Her Peaceful Garden are teaming up to do a blog hop and it’s all about cats! This hop is to celebrate cats of all sizes and shapes during the last full week of October because National Cat Day is October 29th. Also the best part Blank Page Muse is one of the sponsors…lots of cat stamps to choose from…wink, wink!

When you have a chance check out all the cat stamps on the websites: Blank Page Muse and I Brake for Stamps.

Since I’m a lover of all things cats I couldn’t wait to create a little card using the close up cat face from the Cats Full Sheet from I Brake for Stamps Site.

My inspiration for this card is my cat Omega. A little info on her…I actually seen her born (runt of the litter) over eleven years ago and she was half the size of her litter mates. She can be a little diva at times but I wouldn’t have it any other way. She LOVES chin scratches, sleeping next to my pillow at night and can be very chatty if she’s hungry. But most important of all she’s even converted my husband into a cat lover. I told my husband when he proposed that she was part of the package deal. Anyways lets get started on how I created my card.

First I placed the cat stamp onto the MISTI Stamping Tool, inked with Black Ink onto a piece of Watercolor Paper.

I gathered up an assortment of inks and watercolors and painted the cat image.

I folded a 6″x6″ piece of patterned cardstock in half to create a card base. I cut another piece of patterned cardstock slightly smaller than the base and two strips of cardstock and adhered all to the card front. I added a mat to the cat image before gluing to the card and I finished off by adding flatback pearls down the side of the card. Be sure to stop by Her Peaceful Garden’s blog for details on the hop.

And I Think to Myself Card

Hi everyone! Did you know that Eileen Hull now has a line of rubber stamps? Well, she does! You can find her stamps at Maker Forte which can be found HERE.

But I’m back this week with a card I created using Eileen Hull’s newest Wonderful World of Flowers Stamp Set.

I had this 5″x6″ card base I had started but never finished (story of my life tons of unfinished projects ūüėČ ). So I thought this base would show case this set of stamps really well.

First I placed the flowers and sentiment onto the MISTI Stamp Tool, inked with Waterproof Black Ink onto a Heavy Weight Cardstock. Next I used a combo of Watercolors and Colored Pencils to fill in the flowers and once dry I fussy cut a part.

Before adhering the sentiment to the card base I framed the sentiment with a piece of patterned cardstock.

I cut the leaves off of the flowers before shaping all with a Stylus. I added the flowers and leaves to the sentiment along with a button and Dew Drop to the center of each flower and thread bows to finish off the card.

Be sure to stop by Eileen’s blog to see what her Inspiration and Educator Teams have been up to. You can find past posts HERE, HERE and HERE.

An Aspen Christmas Tag

Hi everyone! You know Christmas is only a few months away right? And since it is my favorite holiday I had to created a little pastel Christmas tag for Blank Page Muse using the Aspen Creepy Cute Kid Rubber Stamp.

I placed the girl stamp onto MISTI Stamping Tool, inked with waterproof Black Ink and stamped the image onto a piece of Watercolor Paper. I used an assortment of watercolors and colored pencil to fill in the girl before fussy cutting the image out.

I cut out two, one of each designs, pink and white striped and polka dots tags from the Waterfall Card and Tags Thinlits. I inked the edges and dug out scraps of patterned cardstock to make banners before adhering to the tag along with the girl image.

I dug into my stash of diecuts and added a holly diecut, thread bows and pearl sprays to the corner of the tag. To finish I adhered Pom Pom Trim to the bottom and Hot Pink Ribbon to the top of the tag.

Thinking of You Slimline Card

Hey everyone! I know it has been a minute since my last post but I am back with a quick card I created. Have you seen and heard of slimline cards? It apparently the newest thing to create or I’m just now seeing them (I’m always late to the party) and I thought why not try to make one myself?

The slimline card measures 3.5″x8.5″ (folded) and will fit into a number 10 size envelope ( business size). Instead of measuring and cutting the cardstock to the exact measurements I used Eileen Hull’s Journal Diecut to cut out the base of the card. All I did was fold the cardstock in half and place it where the indention in the diecut that creates the spine wouldn’t cut into the paper. (I used a different cardstock to practice on in the photo below) I used a little washi tape to hold the cardstock in place while I ran it through the Diecut Machine.

I stamped onto a piece of Watercolor Paper the butterfly from the Tim Holtz’s Perspective Stamp Set and the Thinking of You and label stamps from the Simple Sayings Stamp Set in a water proof Black Ink. I used an assortment of inks from my stash to watercolor the butterfly and once dry I fussy cut the butterfly and sentiment out. I used an oval shaped embossing folder on a piece of cardstock (this is from Brenda Walton and is retired) and two other pieces of cardstock that I adhered together to mat the butterfly. I added Foam Pop Dots to the back before placing on the card base. I also matted the sentiment with a scrap piece of cardstock and glued underneath the butterfly.

I think I will have to make more of these! They are so easy to create using the Journal Diecut to make the card base with! As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.
