Simon Says: Animal Magic




Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

We would like to thank Jennand Teresa for all of their contributions to the challenges and we wish them the very best of luck for the future XX

I, along with DebbyJoLinMandyTracy will remain on the team and we have invited these super talented ladies to join us!

Misty ElamakaHappy Ink Designs will be joining us in a couple of weeks.

Please join us in congratulating our new Simon sisters! :-)

This week the challenge is

Animal Magic   

We are showcasing Gina K  Products this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used.

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 gift voucher to one randomly selected winner to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store



I started by stamping the paw prints randomly onto printer paper and then scanned it so that I could print it using my laser printer. I was really keen to use some Sparkling Silver Fancy Foil from the April Card Kit and a Heidi Swap Minc Foil Applicator to make a sparkly background.  I repeated this step using a Simon's Exclusive Doodle Background Cling Stamp and foiled this design onto a Slate Grey Die Cut Stitched Circle, I then added a little bit of white gel pen to the design. 


This week Tom was the model, I was sorely tempted to pop a tongue on the kitty but then decided against ithaha ;-)



I coloured the little kitty and ball of wool with Copic Markers and stuck them on to the front using 3D foam squares.


I added a couple of strips of Washi Tape and wrapped some Red Twine around the card.

And I finished the inside. 






So now it's YOUR turn to get out your animal supplies and join in!

Such a cutie patootie card! The background is a stunner with the cute kitty in front! Haha, I wonder how it would have been with the tongue improvised onto the card. :)
I love your cards. The humor on your post cracked me up!

Stampin Mindy said...

Gorgeous card Lols! I absolutely love the sparkly paw prints, they look so pretty.
Aww Tom is a beauty, he looks just like my lovely Georgie & he spent most of his time with his tongue stuck out hahaha xxx

Lin said...

The kitty on your card looks so surprised! Love the glittery pawprints!

Misty Elam said...

Oh my gosh. That is BRILLIANT!!! Stamp, scan, print!! A brand new door has just been opened... Thanks for sharing this new (to me) technique. I have to say, I love everything about this card. Those iridescent paw prints, that adorable kitty, that doodle background is perfect. I love the red yarn and twine to match the collar. Plus red always looks good with slate gray. I have several kitty stamp sets, but I haven't made very many cat cards yet. Totally inspired now. I can't wait to try this new foiling technique!!

Karin Åkesdotter said...

Thanks for making me smile Lols - those cats (both real and stamped are just the coolest. The first one looks like I feel now after a long day of correcting essays (-: I know you already know - but I am just so very happy happy and excited and honored and... to be on the theam that has inspired me for so man years and to be on Your team is such an honor! Lots of love, Karin
