Have you checked out the Sassy & Crafty stamp and stencil store yet?
It’s one of my new faves! I really like the owner and designer, Beth Duff, and she has an amazing full time design team. I was lucky enough to be invited by her to be part of her YouTube team for the last 6 months. Now I’m a huge fan of her designs and products. She has good prices and a nice selection. I also love that her designs are inclusive. They embrace everyone. I love it!
I LOVE the stencils that she creates. The designs are different and so versatile for all the stenciling techniques that I love to do. I pulled one out called Snowballs for my card today and I am in love with the design. Can I say, I’m OBSESSED with it!
My card is created for this week’s Make The Cards Challenge which is a sketch challenge!
I love this sketch. I immediately went to the new order that I just got from Sassy & Crafty to find the perfect stamp set. I also pulled out the Snowball Stencil. I have had the snowball stencil in my stash for a couple of months and haven’t used it yet. In my latest order, I got this sweet Love Your Look stamp set that is just adorable. It’s loaded with images and sentiments.
I used all the images in this stamp set to create the meandering pattern that is represented by the circles in the sketch. I turned the sketch sideways and created a fun slimline card.
I created a quick stenciled background using a red, a yellow, and a blue distress oxides. The stencil is a 6 x 6″ stencil, but the pattern is easy to match when you want to create a slimline. You can just move it down, line up the dots and keep going.
I stamped and colored all the little cats and cut them out with my Brother Scan-n-Cut.
I used several different color combinations to make the kittens look different from each other. I added some pattern to a few of them and left a few just plain.
I added some Bittersweet Crown Gem Jewels from Maker Forte for a little card bling.
The card is busy, but so are kittens! Perhaps if I had used just one color for my background, it would have been a cleaner look.
But what is the fun in that?
