Stampendous, Feline Cup by Laurel Burch

How are you? I hope you're all having a fabulous weekend! :-)

I am here to share a card I made using a new and fabulous Feline Cup Cling Stamp, designed by the super talented Laurel Burch for Stampendous


I coloured with Copic Markers and added a few dabs of Star Dust Stickles and added a few Studio Katia Iridescent Crystals on there and a wrap of ribbon too. 


and I finished the inside

Simon Says: Typography



Hi all!Welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!

This week we would like you to have a play with letters!

TYPOGRAPHY


The lovely folks over at Simon Says Stamp are generously giving away a FABULOUS $50 voucher to shop at the  Simon Says Stamp Store! All you have to do is take out your crafty supplies, make something following this week’s prompt, and add a link in the Inlinkz at the bottom of this post! You can join 5 times so you could have 5 chances to win! How AWESOME is that!! All winners are chosen randomly, so everyone has an equal chance to win! Woo Hoo!! Good Luck to everyone! The Design Team is looking forward to seeing your creative makes and will pop around to visit you ASAP!

Please pop by to see what our fabulous guest  Lucyna and the DT have made! Brilliantly clever stuff! :-)



I inked up the background stamp with Fog Ink and samped directly onto the card base. I then used a piece of Watercolor Paper the same size as the card and tore a strip off the edge and inked with Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide Ink. I then placed a Dylusions Holes Stencil over the top and used Smoke Ink to add some text in the holes. 

I coloured the Lotus Flowers with Copic Markers and layered up the flowers to give a 3D effect and stitched along the edge to add more interest.


and I finished the inside and almost ruined it! I dropped the inked stamp after I had stamped the sentiment and left some smudgy marks. I think that because there are other bits of random inked text its not that noticable, what do you think? Is it usable? 




Thanks for looking! 

So now it's YOUR turn to get creating!
