Hello and Season’s Greetings to you all! I hope you are having a good December and are busy making memories with friends and loved ones. Today I want to share with you a little card with a grande message. ( I know, I know but I love punny.)Grande-Sized Love from My Favorite Things clear stamp.
This pure innocence girl from MFTis incredibly versatile. You could use it for a thank you card, birthday card, I love you card and of course she would be adorable on a card containing a gift card especially if that gift card was for a place that served coffee. I kept things pretty simple wanting her to take center stage on the card. Here is the run down of what I did and what I used to do it:
This card is bright and cheery and a perfect thank you for me to give to a fellow coffee lover who really is always there to pick me up. I really do love the pure innocence collection from My Favorite Things and am so excited to add this little gal to my collection. Thank you for spending some time with me today on the blog and hope you are carving out a little time for yourself to do something crafty.
Newton’s Nook has been a favorite company of mine for years now and I am super excited to get to play with one of their stamps! Company of Cats is such a cute and clever image and I had a blast coloring all the different kitties. This stamp set could not have come into my life at a more perfect time because just a few weeks ago my husband and I adopted a kitten. Ember weighed less than three pounds when we brought her home and she is growing like wild fire!
We are both just smitten with her! She is sweet and loves to be loved and it has been so much fun to watch her play and explore as she grows. Our dog on the other hand is a little afraid of her still and tries to pretend she doesn’t exist but as I said it’s only been a few weeks so hopefully they will become friends eventually. Now back to the card…
Here’s a quick run down of what I did while creating this card:
I didn’t want to detract from the kitties so I added a sentiment to the inside of the card only so the Company of Cats would get the majority of the attention. I embossed it with VersaMark ink pad and used white detail embossing powder on the sentiment stamp.
I had so much fun coloring this stamp and thinking of all the different cats out there in the world. I will admit though Ember is my favorite cat in the world but I am a little biased.
Thanks so much for stopping today and spending a little time with me. I hope you have an amazing day and take the chance to create something today!
I hope this post finds you grabbing a little time yourself today. Once I got my hot little hands on this card kit I immediately went for the fox! She is so sweet and pretty and is smiling like that hot cup of deliciousness (for me it is always coffee) is truly warming her up. I am looking forward to seeing the cards that will be created from this month’s Flavor of the Month card kit!
Without further adieu here it is:
I stamped the image with Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink since I knew I would be coloring it with my Copic Markers and that ink is formulated to work with alcohol markers. I colored the image and then added some Nuvo Glitter Drop to the coffee mug but the sparkle just isn’t showing up in the picture here but I am definitely digging the glossiness. The wood background paper with the little snowmen is so cute I had a really hard time covering any of it up even though I wanted it to be my background. Last but not least I added the little rosette fans with the buttons and thought they were such a fun and different embellishment. They are new to me and now I am itching to get my hands on some more!
Thank you so much for checking out this sneak peek, it was so much fun and I hope you enjoy getting to see a glimpse of what’s to come. I know this time of year is a busy season so hang in there a bit longer and make those great memories and then you can sit down with your favorite beverage, take some time for yourself and dig into this month’s sweet little card kit!
