Love Cats Tunnel Card

If you saw my Seaside Bay card on Saturday (click here), I said I’d share another card with an extra layer. Well here it is!

The Love Cats stamp set and the Dandy Designs DSP (Level 2 SAB item) are perfect for this fun tunnel card. The cats are stamped in Petal Pink, but before stamping onto Basic White card, I inked up the zigzag stamp from the Stitchery stamp set and stamped it with Calypso Coral ink directly onto the cat image then stamped the cat onto the white card. This is called the Kissing technique, kissing the two stamps together, and can be really effective. Once I stamped the 3 cats, I fussy cut them with Paper Snips.

The sentiment inside the tunnel is from the Charming Sentiments Bundle.

Here is how it looks from the top, once constructed and it folds flat to fit into our C6 envelope!

On the back of the card, I used the die cut circles from the front design, plus the Alphabet A La Mode dies (with Adhesive Sheet on the back of the card before cutting) and the ‘birthday’ from the Art Gallery stamp set. I also used a Sponge Dauber to add some ink around the White circle.

Don’t these cats look awesome in this tunnel – just like cats really are playing!

Each week some of the Art With Heart team are joining  the Colour Creations Blog Hop to bring you creative inspiration showcasing our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours in alphabetical order.

Week 32 – Night of Navy

Today, I have some very simple masculine cards for you to show how you can create three card bases from three pieces of different DSPs. I’m using the Sun Prints Designer Series Paper with a Night of Navy card base and Basic White matt layer (5mm smaller than the card base).

Take three different patterns of paper and cut down to 12.5cm x 9.5cm.  Place all 3 pieces together in your Trimmer at an angle. There are no right or wrong measurements here. Just as long as you cut twice holding the patterned papers together. Once they are cut you can place them down ensuring one piece of each pattern is on each card. Glue them to your white layer.

I am sharing a sneak peek of some new alphabet dies, Alphabet A La Mode, that are coming in the New Year and they are a must have item!

Craft with Kate Morgan tip for using Alphabet dies, Stampin Up Australia 2023I placed some Adhesive Sheet behind some Navy and White card scraps to allow the die cuts to become stickers without the mess of using glue. Using the H, B, 2 & U dies, place them in a row together – grab some washi tape to hold them in place. It doesn’t have to be perfect, but it’s easier this way when cutting 3 times!

Peel the backings off the dies to reveal the sticky side and place them onto your cards.

Finally I added some Brushed Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots. There were 3 colours, so I grouped them on each card. I think these are more masculine than many of the other embellishments.

On the inside, I placed a Basic White piece of card with a strip of the DSP across the bottom.
