This cute kitty is a new April release stamp over at Techniquejunkies.com. I photographed him at an angle on purpose, so you could see that there is some dimension to the card and actually two cats (one on top of the other). I'll explain why.... when I first laid eyes on this stamp I kinda felt like he was bobbin' his head and singing "meow chicka meow meow" lol (I think I have issues) sooooo I put him on an Action Wobbler. If you haven't heard of an Action Wobbler , it's like a spring that allows movement to any item you place on it. There is a flat piece on each side of the spring. One side of the spring attaches to your card base and the other side of the spring attaches to an object, or in this case a stamped image that I had cut out.
I am sure you could find lots of ways to use this cute stamp but just in case you want to make a card like mine, I have included step by step directions below. I tried to do a series of photo's to give you a tutorial on how to make this card but for some reason those pics's were lost.
Sorry but an outline is the best I can do today. WAH wah
Items used in the making of this card:
Meow Chicka Meow Meow stamp from Technique Junkies
Wasted - a Palettini background stamp from Technique Junkies
White Cardstock 8 1/2 x 5 1/2
White Cardstock (same size as cat stamp)
Scrap paper or masking paper (same size as cat stamp)
Cuttlebug embossing folder
Pink Ink pad
Black Ink pad
Diamond Glaze (for eyes)
Copic Markers, colored pencils or any other marker you prefer.
Ribbon and Flower or embellishments of your choice.
- Score the 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 cardstock at 4 1/4 on your Scorepal. When folded on the scoreline you should have a card front that is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches.
- Lay the background stamp on the upper half of your card. Using a pencil, lightly mark at the bottom of the stamp. Set the background stamp aside for now.
- Ink up your Meow Chicka Meow Meow Stamp using a black ink pad. Stamp the kitty on your card, making sure to position your stamp slightly to the right of the card and just above the pencil line that you marked in step 3.
- Stamp the Meow Chicka Meow Meow Stamp again on your small piece of cardstock and then a third time on a scrap piece of paper or on a piece of masking paper.
- Using scissors, cut out the cat stamped on the small piece of cardstock. Using markers or colored pencils, color in the eye's and nose. Put Diamond Glaze on the eyes if desired, and then set this piece aside to dry.
- place the stamped masking paper (or scrap paper) over the cat stamped image on your card. This will provide a mask so you don't get ink on your cat when stamping the background.
- Ink your Wasted Palettini background stamp in Pink (or any color of your choice) and stamp it on your card front. Stamping on the top half of your card (over the mask).
- Remove the mask from the front of the card.
- Using your embossing folder and Cuttlebug, emboss a design at the bottom of your card.
- Glue the ribbon and embellishment to the card. The ribbon should be on top of the pencil mark, making sure it lies just below the cat stamped on the card.
- Once Diamond Glaze is dry, use an Action Wobbler to adhere the cut out image directly on top of the cat already stamped on the front of the card.
