Cat Tree

Greetings! Seasons Greetings, that is. This week, the Stampendous Design Team has been sharing projects that use some of the new Christmas stamps and stencils featured in the July catalog. In addition, our creations have fabulous Bo Bunny paper on them. I adore the Vintage Double Dot collection. It goes with everything. My card features the Cat Tree stamp. I had to color this one because my mom has a LOT of cats. A lot. So I decided to color some of these cats to look like hers.

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
