Dreamerland Wondering How You Are Doing Kitty Card

Hello again, sweet kitty loving peeps! (and everyone else, which is probably about 1% of you. lol!)

The Cat Lovers Hop continues and, of course, I have yet another kitty card!

Isn’t she just the sweetest? So, is Kitty wondering how the girl is doing or is she writing to someone wondering how they are doing?

One small detail: To give our gal some depth, after stamping and diecutting, I popped just her head up with a foam dot. The girl got folded at the knees and just her feet and head got foam dots. Also, the first pile of stamped books I fussy cut so they’d appear farther back than the diecut pile with the edge.

Supplies:

  • Dreamerland Crafts: Just a Note to Say & Wondering How You are Doing stamp & die sets
  • Tonic Studios: Ornate Frame dies
  • Recollections 110# ivory cardstock
  • Tsukineko Memento Rich Cocoa & Tuxedo Black dye ink
  • Copic Markers: B21, 24; BG13, 45, 72; BV04; C1, 3; E00, 11, 23, 31, 33, 37, 51, 55, G02, 25; R22, 24, 29, 89; RV17, 19; V04, 06, 12, 15, 17; Y17, 28, 32; YG63, YR04, 07, 31
  • Pebbles, Inc. Pearlescent Chalks Jewel Tones
  • Shuttle Art Gel Pens
  • Ranger Inkssentials Glossy Accents (window panes)

Sparkling Mixed Media Coffee/Tea Calendar

Hi, all!

It’s been a rough few weeks with a nasty relapse, but I’m back briefly to post this sparkling mixed media coffee/tea calendar that I made as a gift for a friend. (and for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge and the December Stamplorations Mixed Media Challenge)

As you probably know, it’s also time for the winter Coffee Lovers Hop. Winter in Florida doesn’t mean snow, it just means different flowers and perhaps a few more hot beverages, but there are enough warm days for a nice cold frap, too! There is the RARE frost this far south, so I really frosted everything up on this.

That frosting goes well with MarkerPoP’s day 10 theme: Sparkle. I love the various sparkling products used, like the Stickles on the cups and feathers, the Extreme Peacock embossing powder on the feathers and the copper glitter paste on the stenciled background. The flowers have Flower Soft centers

That fab musicalbutterfly just sparkles and shines! You can’t hardly tell in the pics, but a layer of Glossy Accents over the fraps looks just like the plastic cups they come in.

Even the whipped topping on the fraps have some frosty sparkle in them!

Materials used:

  • Stamplorations stamps: Coffee & Dog Roses, Trendy Feathers, Trendy Feathes 2, Trendy Butterflies, Tea Cup Row, Always Time for Tea
  • Stamplorations ARTplorations stencil: Swirly Blooms
  • DoCrafts 2018 calendar tabs
  • KaiserCraft Bracket Album (just one ‘page’)
  • Plaid Apple Barrel Jet Black acrylic paint
  • Tsukineko Memento dye inks: Bamboo Leaves, Tuxedo Black
  • Core’dinations paper: white, lilac, gray
  • Tsukineko Versamark ink
  • Recollections gold detail embossing powder

  • Copic Markers:B24; G24, 99; R20; V04, 09, 15, 17; Y15, 17, 35; YG61, 63, 67
  • Sakura Gelly Roll pen – white 08
  • BoBunny glitter paste: Copper
  • Ranger Inkssentials Glossy Accents
  • Ranger Stickles: Lavender, Rose Gold, Seafoam, Star Dust, Turquoise
  • Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Stickles: Dusty Concord
  • Ranger Ice Stickles: Silver Ice
  • Nuvo Crystal Drops: Copper Penny, Gloss Dandelion Yellow, Gloss White
  • Flower Soft: Daffodil (the flower centers)
  • Misc. Vellum
