YOU’RE NOT NORMAL
The title isn’t a criticism – it’s a compliment! It’s also a sentiment from the My Favorite Things (MFT) Sassy Pants Best Friends stamp set. You’ll have to look at my card, below, to read the entire sentiment! I had some fun using the cat from the unbranded stamp set that a bought a few weeks ago. I’ve already shared the dog image from the set, in THIS POST HERE. I had also used the same Sassy Pants Best Friends set for the sentiment on that card, too.
NORMAL IS OVERRATED
Cats are always getting themselves into silly positions; I thought that this one would look cute upside down!
Are you like me, and spend an unmentionable amount of time online, looking at funny animal pictures & videos? That’s what this upside down cat reminded me of!
First, set your cardstock into your MISTI or other stamp platform. Line up the cat image, pick it up with the stamp platform, and ink it up in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Stamp once or twice, to make sure you have a nice crisp image outline.
Choose your favourite colouring medium; I used some of my Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers. I used the Smoky Slate Combo pack of light & dark, and then the Flirty Flamingo pink for the nose. On a separate piece of white cardstock, stamp the paws again. Colour them with the same markers as on the panel, and then cut them out by hand. Once you’re finished colouring, line up the sentiment from the Sassy Pants Best Friends set in the MISTI, and ink it up in Picked Raspberry Distress ink. Finally, add the cut out paws on top of the panel, for more dimension.
Use foam tape to attach this panel to a panel of light pink cardstock. I used a retired SU! embossing folder with small hearts on the panel. These were then attached to a dark pink card base. To finish off the card front, I added some light pink and gray enamel hearts from my stash.
By keeping the colours to only 2, this card came together very quickly & easily!
This fun card could be used for any occasion. How about sending it to that quirky friend, for Valentine’s day? I’m sure they’d love it!
