Cat's Motto

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I started by randomly inking through the Tiles Mask with Stormy Sky Distress Ink. I repeated the process with the Stripy Spots Mask and Barn Door Distress Ink. With the stamp in my hand, I randomly stamped the Pawprint Lattice A6 Background using Stormy Sky and then the Kitten Treats A6 Background using Barn Door. I made sure the ink was dry and then ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Creative Expressions Knotted Trellis Embossing Folder and inked around the edges with Stormy Sky. I rubbed Pearl Moon Gilding Wax over the embossed surface. Once dry, I buffed it up using a dry wet wipe.

I cut the Couture Creations Splendour Die out of Rich Red Card. I rubbed Pearl Moon Gilding Wax over the die cut and once dry, buffed it up using a dry wet wipe.

I stamped the Best Friends Stamp using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using one of Sue's Auvergne Dies and inked through the die with Stormy Sky. I cut the largest die in the set out of Deep Navy Card.

I stamped the sentiment from the Paws-itively Great Clear Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Clear Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Petite Scalloped Ovals Large and inked through the die with Stormy Sky.

I cut Sue's Dotty 3D Bow out of Rich Red Card and rubbed Pearl Moon Gilding Wax all over. I cut the centre band out of Deep Navy Card.

I assembled the card as shown adding a Small Circle Dazzler to each corner and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Cosmic Pearl PVA around the edges.

I'll be back tomorrow with a sneak peek from Saturday's shows.

Thanks for stopping by.

Julia.
