Hello and Welcome!!!
Watch video tutorial here!!!
Let’s re-imagine our stamps today! We are going to take the Ai Christmas Kitty Flip Card Set (5183) and rather than creating a flip card we are going to create a Kitty Christmas Tree….why not…right?! I love to use my stamps not only in the traditional way, but also in unique and fun ways! It’s a great way to get more value from the stamps and dies that you purchase.
First, let’s stamp and color all of our little kitties. We will need to stamp two sets of the forward-facing kitties and one of the back facing kitties. All of the coloring today will be done using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Sugared Almond Pink, Deep Red, May Green, Deep Green, Turquoise Green, Beige, Mid Brown, Lt Gray.
Once the coloring is done, we can start our cutting using a pair of detail scissors. We will keep all 4 kitties for the bottom of the tree and then 3 for the second layer and 2 for the top of the tree. This will take a little bit of time to cut out, but it is well worth the effort!
We will also die cut a small, stitched star out of some glitter paper for the tree topper. To this star we can add some sequins for added interest. For this we will use the Buttons Galore & More “Holly” Sequinz.
To set the scene for our card, we can use the Ai Mini Paper Pack (5835) and the Ai Valentines Paper Pack (5741). We will also add a snowy look by spattering this paper with the Dr. Ph. Martin’s Bleed Proof White. We can also ink the edges with the Tim Holtz Ground Espresso Ink.
Let’s add a few highlights using a white gel pen and add some foam squares for added dimension!
