Have a Dazzling Birthday - Pretty Kitty

Today's card is this little Birthday card for a friend of mine who loves cats.

I love the sweet Pretty Kitty stamp set which has some pretty cute illustrations.  So this illustration was just perfect as she also happens to enjoy her garden !

I used my MISTI (you would need a stamp position for this technique if you decided to heat emboss the outline image).
  1. Position your card stock in your positioner and stamp in Basic Gray Archival Ink.  I felt that black would be too heavy.
  2. Clean the stamp with a baby wipe leaving it where it is in the stamp positioner.  Apply clear Versamark and stamp again.
  3. Apply clear Stampin' Emboss Powder and set with a heat tool.  Now you are ready to apply some colour to your stamped image.

I used my Stampin' Write Marker Pens, selecting a variety of pretty colours.  I made sure to use Tempting Turquoise  too as this tied the whole thing together.  I used  Whisper White card stock on a layer of Tempting Turquoise card stock and then adhered the two layers to the C6 card base.

I thought it would be pretty to die-cut the the stamped image using my Layering Circle Framelits.

After doing so, I felt the whole thing needed just a little more Ooomph !

So I used my Dazzling Diamonds on the outer scalloped circle which was in Tempting Turquoise. 

Now you do need to use a sticky powder to set the Dazzling Diamonds glittery embossing.   I used Heat n Stick which Stampin' Up! sold until very recently.  A little market research has revealed that similar products are available by Ranger and Cosmic Shimmer.

I love the little bit of razzle dazzle that the Dazzling Diamonds adds to the card. 

Pretty Kitty is a set which I will never get tired of.  Its a keeper !

Anyway - that's it from me.  I am off to the kitchen to make Lasagne and Chocolate Brownies, so no crafting for me today.

Enjoy your Sunday, and please pop back again.

  1. Hi Linda. Such a cute card. Love the colours you have used.
    My sister loves cats so a must for me. Have you any dog dies? Would love to see a card made for us dog lovers ! Love and huggles xx

  2. Hi Linda, such a simplicitic idea that produces such a fantastic card. Tying the colours used in the frame in your coloured imaged is such a must but not known by all crafters. Rosemary, Stampinup along with the Sweet Kitty (i think thats whats its called) has got a dog stamp set called Bella and Friends and I'm not sure but there might be a matching die set. Is there Linda?

  3. You have done it again!! Fantastic card Linda, I too love the pretty kitty stamps, your round scallop looks like its actually glitter paper... Wow <3 <3 Your card is adorable xx
