I’m sharing another card using products from the new Penny Black release, Sweet Spring. I always look forward to the critter stamp sets in each new release – especially the cute images created by Margaret Sherry. So here’s a card using her very cute cat images.
How cute is this cat image sitting in his boat without a care in the world. This image is from the clear set sweet you! (30-471). I stamped this guy with black ink and colored him with Copic markers. I then fussy cut the cat and set him aside.
I wanted to put this cat in an ocean scene. From blue card stock, I die cut 3 small circles using the die set Stitched Squares and Circles (51-422). I set this aside and worked on the rest of the components of my card.
I colored a separate piece of card stock using blue distress ink to create a ombre effect. A circle frame was cut from this using the largest circle from the same die set. Using the 2nd largest circular die, I cut a circle at thee top center of my card panel. I adhered the circular ombre frame over the cut circle.
I adhered my stamped image with the smaller blue circles. i arranged them in such a way where the circles looked like waves. I fussy cut the cat’s arm from the boat and was able to tuck the circle waves between the boat and the circle. Once I was happy with my arrangement, I adhered the image with glue.
On my card based I lightly colored the area with blue Distress ink where the circle would be positioned. I also stamped my sentiment from good times (30-463) on my card panel. I assembled the card by positioning and then adhering my stamp image behind the card panel. I then added foam tape to secure the panel to my card base.
I hope you enjoy your week!
