Whimsy wee kitty in flower pot

Time to break up all the Christmas posts with something non-Christmassy! I’ve used a stamp from the Wee Stamps collection at Whimsy Stamps called Sweet Kitties and made a shabby slimline card. It is a no-line version and I’ve used my Copic markers as usual.

I’ve used scraps from a few different background papers which I have torn at the top edge instead of cutting, added some lace, a doily, embossed on some frantage and glued on some sequins. The sentiment is a Norwegian text stamp (which says Happy Birthday) embossed onto dark pink cardstock and then die cut using the Quick Strips die set.

Copics used: N0, N1, N2, N3, W0, W2, YR20, YR31, YR23, YR27, E08, E70, E71, E74, RV10, RV91, RV93, RV32, RV34

It seems like I have gotten into the habit of posting a simple card as every other post, so I guess we are due another!

This one has been made using one of Lili of the Valley‘s pre-coloured toppers. I do love these! The ribbon is from a local shop and I believe the lace is purchased at Bikuben, as well as the rhinestones. The paper is one I have had forever and I don’t remember where it’s from. A shame really as I wouldn’t have minded more of it.. heh.

Happy New Year

Happy new year, everybody! Hopefully this post finds you full of energy for starting a new year and that you are still following whatever ambitious new year resolutions you decided on this year!

I only have a simple card for you today. The background papers are plain shimmering silver and a black and white patterned paper, which may or may not be a BoBunny one. One of my new years resolutions is that I shall pay closer attention to which papers I use when I make cards, haha! The pre coloured image is by Lili of the Valley, as is the stamp I’ve used in the corner. I’ve used dies to create the scalloped edge around it.
