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!

Heart of Christmas: Kissing Technique meets Festive Farmhouse & Dashing Deer

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop.jpg

Today, I am sharing a card using the Kissing Technique along with the Festive Farmhouse designer paper and the Dashing Deer bundle!

I added a layer of designer paper then another two strips across the centre with a small strip of Silver Glimmer.

The deer is inked in Gray Granite and the Sheet Music stamp is inked in Night of Navy ink and they are stamped together (just like kissing the two stamps) before onto the white card. Then I die cut the deer and added it to the vellum cut out with the Starburst Punch. I added some dimensionals to the back of the vellum behind the deer and added some Silver Metallic Thread across the dimensionals being placing it onto the card. The sentiment is stamped in Versamark ink, added some White Emboss Powder and heat set it.

I repeated the stamped image with the kissing technique again on the inside and added another die cut to the top corner.

Kissing Technique

Morning Stampers,

Today I want to show you a card using the Kissing technique.

This is a very effective stamping style and I love it. Simply ink the flower stamp with Pistachio Pudding Stampin’ Ink, then ink the blossom branch with Strawberry Slush and stamp (kiss) it directly on top of the flower stamp before placing the double inked flower stamp onto the white cardstock. Repeat this process across the white card for a wonderful background.

This is one technique that is great for a workshop. Stay tuned for a date to be set soon.
