Kitty Takes a SelfieAre you in need of a smile today? If so, then have a peek at this cute little kitty. Isn't he precious?!? He's a digi from DigiStamp Boutique, and he definitely makes me smile. While working on another project today, I remembered that I had a darling Polaroid camera stamp set from Close to My Heart that this kitty would look perfect peeking out of. So Kitty took a selfie, and a pretty cute one at that!
How I Made This CardTo make this card, I first printed the kitty digi on white cardstock. Then I colored him up with Copic markers, and fussy cut him out and set him aside.
Next I stamped the Polaroid picture image once in black ink on white cardstock, and then again on patterned paper. I cut out the center piece from the patterned paper and layered it over the center piece of the image that I'd stamped on the white cardstock. I thought that made a good garden-like background for the picture.
I layered the kitty on to the frame with foam dimensional tape. This way he seems to be climbing right out of the photo. It seemed only logical to stamp and color up the Polaroid camera image as an accent.
Materials UsedI used these materials to make this Kitty selfie card:
- "Cute Kitty Set" digital stamp set by Digistamp Boutique
- "Life in Pictures" acrylic stamp set by Close to My Heart (Past Stamp of the Month = Retired)
- Neenah white cardstock
- Patterned paper from my scraps stash
- Memento "Tuxedo Black" ink
- Copic markers
- Orange washi tape
- Stick-on button from the "You're Invited" collection by BoBunny
- Orange and white baker's twine
Challenge SharesI'm sharing my card for these challenges today:
* As You Like It -- "Trademark Style & Why"
* Addicted to Stamps and More -- "Make Your Mark" (Used markers)
* Through the Craftroom Door -- Always anything goes
The ladies over at As You Like It have asked me to share how this card shows my "trademark style." First, there's a scene of sorts. I love to craft scenes! This one features a darling, hand-colored little furry friend, as do most of my projects. I've included cheerful colors, images that are fussy cut and popped up with dimensional tape, and just a little bit of simple, "homey" embellishing.
