With a Friend In the Garden – Art Impressions Cat Card

Well, the Cat Lovers Hop is purring right along and today finds us reaching the half-way point already!

My first card for today happens to use the prize set that Art Impressions is offering some fortunate hopper over on HerPeacefulGarden.blogspot.com: With a Friend. You can see the details over on the main hop page HERE.

Isn’t that scene just DARLING?!! It goes well with the current Art Impressions challenge: Stamp a Scene!

I embossed the stamp on the sweet Spellbinders shaped card base, then, to make the scene stand out, I stamped it again onto white cardstock and watercolored the image. When done, I popped it up with a couple of foam sheets and ran a black Sharpie across the edges BEFORE taping it down to the base.

It looks really cool in real life popped up like that! The sweet words say: “In the Garden with a friend is the best Place to be.” Awww! I’m sure they would’ve said ‘snoozing with a friend’ if they’d’ve had room! : )

Materials used:

  • Art Impressions: With a Friend Window stamp
  • Spellbinders Decorative Labels One
  • Tsukineko Versamark Ink
  • Inkadinkado embossing powder – Black
  • Tsukineko Memento dye ink – Tuxedo Black
  • Marvy Uchida Le Plume II pens – 2,5,8,12,15,37,75,77,87,90,97

I’m playing along with the following hops and challenges – click on them for all the details.

CDD Toucans: Coffee With You Card

Welcome back to another day of the Summer 2017 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.

  

The colors of today’s card were inspired by the Craftin’ Desert Divas June Mood Board challenge.

I stepped out of my comfort zone by using these cool summer colors on some Toucans. I’d love to take a vacation down to South American and see some Toucans in real life again!  (SSS Monday Challenge Let’s Take a Vacation) They’re really quite gregarious.

I love that donut stuck on his beak!I tried to use THIS cool gelatos technique to get some leaves and butterflies in the background sky, but you can just barely see it…

I’ll have to work on that technique again some other time.

Materials used:

  • Craftin’ Desert Divas: Coffee Break, Feathered Friends & Flutter By stamp sets
  • Spellbinders Decorative Labels One and Labels One dies
  • Core’dinations cardstock: white and lime green cardstock
  • Strathmore Mixed media 90# paper
  • Copic Markers: B02; C3,7; E13,25,79; G24; RV02,04; Y13; YR02
  • Faber-Castell Gelatos: Butter Cream, Cotton Candy, Guava, Mango
  • Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L E-Z Runner permanent strips
  • This n That foam dots
  • Simply Defined “Stay Put” All Purposed Liquid Adhesive
