Slimline Kitty

 Welcome back to my blog!  I hope you aren't tired of my slimline cards yet because I've got another one today.  I recently discovered an outstanding release of slimline stencils from Stamplorations. They have an impressive collection of 36 different slimline stencils.  Just...Wow!  I, of course, had to own some of these bad boys.  The card I created today uses the Kitty and Wavy Dots stencils.



Isn't it just lovely???  I was having so much fun I forgot to take step photos along the way!

I started with a white piece of cardstock.  I taped the Wavy Dots stencil to the cardstock and got out the Fall Harvest mini ink cube set from Altenew.  I started with the lightest color at the top and worked my way down to the darkest color at the bottom.  I removed the Wavy Dots stencil and taped down the Kitty stencil.  

I grabbed a flat back craft spatula and Deco Foil Glazed Pewter Metallix gel.  I spread the gel out until I had a fairly even distribution.  I carefully peeled off the stencil.  I cleaned off the stencil and the spatula while I set the piece aside to dry for a bit.

I created a card base by cutting a piece of mustard colored cardstock to 7 1/2" x 8 3/4".  When you fold it in half you get a card measuring 8 3/4" x 3 3/4".  I cut of a piece of dark gray cardstock using the largest die from Trinity Stamps Slimline Scalloped die set.  I glued it to the mustard card base and then added the cat stenciled layer.

Now I just needed a sentiment.  I cut the word 'Bestie" out two times from the same dark gray cardstock.  I used the PinkFresh Studios Phrase Builder: hello set.  I cut the shadow layer out of white cardstock and glued them all together.  To add a bit of bling I went over the gray with a Nuvo shimmer marker.  I stamped the word hey on a white piece of cardstock.  I trimmed it down and cut it at an angle.  Then I added a piece of foam on the back and added it to the card.

For the final bit of bling I added some flat backed gold gems.  There you have it!


I'm linking my card up to enter the STAMPlorations Stencil challenge.




As always, I appreciate you stopping by!
