Meowy Christmas

Tanja Blog 3 Comments

Hi there,

it’s Tanja here and today, I would like to show you this adorable Cat Christmas Card:

  • stamp the Santa Hat from the Skipping Stones Design Holiday Cats stamp set onto a stitched panel of watercolor paper with Versafine (Onyx Black) – I used my Mini MISTI in order to get a crisp impression on the textured cardstock
  • mask the santa hat and stamp the cat from the same stamp set with the same black ink
  • stamp several snowflakes from the Skipping Stones Design Christmas Labels set with Versamark and heat-emboss them with WOW! Silver Bells embossing powder
  • create a background with Distress Inks (Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean) and the Mini Ink Blending Tool
  • color the image with Derwent Inktense Pencils and a damp watercolor brush
  • add highlights with a white gel pen
  • add Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay to the Santa Hat and Radiant Neon Amplify (White) to the rim and the pompon
  • stamp the first part of the sentiment from the Skipping Stones Design Holiday Cats stamp set with Versamark onto a strip of black cardstock and heat-emboss it with the same silver WOW! embossing powder used for the snowflakes
  • cut out the Clearly Besotted Christmas from black cardstock as second part of the sentiment
  • cover the die cut with Pico Embellisher (Shimmer)
  • add a strip of silver glitter cardstock and a strip of patterned paper from the Maja Design A Gift for you 6×6 paper pad to the left side of the card and ink up the edges with Distress Ink (Tumbled Glass)


Here are close-ups of the adorable cat and the shiny sentiment:

Have a wonderful day.
