Just A Note Cat Card

Hello there crafters! It's Theary Chea here today. I am so excited to be on the Ink Blot Shop Blog with my first Design Team blog post!

Being an animal lover, I am immediately drawn to anything that has to do with critters. And this adorable stamp set called "Fat Cats" was no exception. Yes, you read that correctly. Tifany nailed it with the name on this set; I mean, who doesn't love a chubby sweet cat. I know I do!

To start my project, I stamped out the images of the cats all over a white alcohol-friendly cardstock that measures 4.25 inches by 5.50 inches. I then went in and colored the images with Copic markers. I like using several shades for each cat to create dimension. So, going in with a light tone, mid-tone, and dark tone.

After I colored all the cats in, I used BG72 to color the white spaces on the card panel. I then used one of my rectangles wafer die from my stash and ran the colored card panel through my die-cutting machine.

I have been enjoying adding a matted layer onto my cards lately. So, I cut down a black cardstock with my paper trimmer slightly larger than my card panel and used that to layer between the colored card panel and the white card base.

After assembling all the pieces, I used a sentiment from the Solid Sayings stamp set, and heat embossed that with white embossing powder. I later trimmed the sentiment down to a strip and adhered that with foam strips onto the bottom third of my card front.

And there you have it! This card is quite simple to create and requires a lot of coloring. But, I love the therapeutic feelings of breaking out my coloring markers and just going to town. I hope that this card inspires you to sit down and create.

Until next time,
