Cat with Flower Balloon

Hi there,

I would like to show you this watercolor cat and flower card that I created for the new Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge:


  • stamp the cat from the My Favorite Things Cool Cat set with Versafine (Smokey Gray) onto a piece of watercolor paper
  • color the image with Daniel Smith and Schmincke Horadam watercolors and a watercolor brush
  • cut the image out and set it aside
  • cut out a stitched panel from watercolor paper and stamp the balloon from the WPlus9 Party Animal set with Versafine (Smokey Gray)
  • mask the outside of the balloon and stamp a flower arrangement from the Simon Says Stamp Ranunculus set with Versamark and heat-emboss the flowers with WOW! Bright White Super Fine embossing powder
  • color the flowers and the background with Daniel Smith and Schmincke Horadam watercolors and a watercolor brush - add some turquoise splatters as a finishing touch
  • cut out a slightly larger stitched panel from turquoise cardstock and layer it behind the watercolor panel before adhering all the layers to a white cardbase

Have a colorful day.

Yours,

Hello Kitten

Hi there,

today, I would like to show you this sweet little Cat Card over on the Gerda Steiner Designs Blog:

  • color the kitten from the Gerda Steiner Designs Kitten in Flowerpot image which is available as part of the Gerda Steiner Designs Spring Digital Stamp Bundle with ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Pens, Distress Markers and a damp watercolor brush
  • use one of the My Favorite Things Polaroids dies to create two little frames from patterned paper from the Pebbles Front Porch 6x6 paper pad
  • add the sentiment cut with the help of a die from the Lawn Fawn Magic Color Slider set from kraft cardstock
  • in order to add more interest to the white cardbase, adhere two strips of patterned paper cut into a wave shape using the My Favorite Things Stitched Snow Drifts die set onto the left side of the cardbase

Hope to see you again soon.

Yours,
