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.

Holiday Spirit: Aurora Wings Challenge #73

Seasons Greetings! Today I have a project for the latest Aurora Wings Challenge which is "Holiday Spirit." I decided to take the theme as a two-fer. Not only is this a holiday card, but the "spirits" are flowing too.

I used the Wine Sprite for my card, and gave her a Merlot look. I colored her with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. Here's a closeup.

I found a lovely paper in my stash from Wild Rose Studio from their Holly Lane collection. For my sentiment, I had some pretty red glitter cardstock from DCWV that I die cut with an old alphabet set from QuicKutz. I also added some sequins from a few different Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground. The sequins and the sentiment were all glued on with On Point Glue from Imagine.

On my card base, I inked the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink, and then Peeled Paint Distress Ink. After I adhered my background to my base, I added Rock Candy Stickles to the edges. This gave just a touch of sparkle.
