Paws-itively Great!

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I started by randomly inking through the Tiles Mask using Pumice Stone Distress Ink. I repeated the process with the Stripy Spots Mask and Vintage Photo Distress Ink. With the stamp in my hand, I randomly stamped the Kitten Treats Background using Pumice Stone and then the Pawprint Lattice Background using Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I inked around the edges with Pumice Stone.

I stamped the Best Friends Stamp using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Radiant Rectangles and inked through the die with Pumice Stone. I drew around the outside edge of the die onto Chestnut Card and cut it out using sissors to make a faux nestie.

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

I cut the Couture Creations Moulin Rouge Die out of Chestnut Card. I rubbed Pewter Gilding Wax all over the die cut.

I ran a couple of strips of of Hi-Tack Tape along the bottom section of the card. I ruffled some Brown Solid Satin Centre Band Ribbon along it.

I tied a bow using the same ribbon and added a Vintage Metal Embellishment.

I assembled the card as shown adding a couple of Cream Pearls to the top corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Choco Brown PVA around the edges.

I'm demoing at Domino Crafts in Wolverhampton today 10 till 4. If you're in the area, please call in.

Thanks for stopping by.

  14. Good morning Julia,
    Have a great demoing to all your fans, i just hope that you get good weather for a good turn out. This card would be a card that i could send to my friend who loves her cat as much as her daft friend here loves her lab dog. Unfortunately i cannot see my lovely Tia sitting next to the cat like in your card here but i can live in hope. Thank you,
