Sorry I Overreacted Card

I love all of the flasks in this background paper!

I unpacked almost all of my kitchen last night, and placed things in the new cabinets. A few of the cabinets changed size (or configuration)…not sure if I like how I have things this first iteration. Luckily, I can always try again!

“Feline Better” Card

masked-stenciled-feline-fine

I love the punny sentiment, “Hope you are feline better” that came in the Simon Says Stamp Playful Kittens stamp set.

I cut a circle mask, blended ink through a stencil over the mask, then removed the stencil and blended a little more ink. The cat was stamped, embossed, colored and then die cut from a separate piece of Neenah Solar White card stock.

Supplies: Stamps – Simon Says Stamp, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Basic Gray, Smoky Slate, inks – Copics C1, R0000, R81, Tim Holtz/Ranger Distress Ink Tumbled Glass, VersaFine Smokey Gray, dies – Simon Says Stamp (cat), Spellbinders (circles), stencil – Heidi Swapp, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.
