Hello, crafty peeps! Happy Saturday – I hope you’re having a great day! Can’t believe it’s February already! Our February challenge is live this morning over at Mix It Up Challenge Blog and I’m happy to share my DT inspiration project for MIUCB #34 – Anything Goes + Stenciling! I created a fun friendship card featuring a couple kitties looking out the stenciled window having a meowy conversation!
I used Ranger walnut stain ink with the StencilGirl Window Ledger 9 stencil first, then added Dreamweaver translucent embossing paste. I let it dry overnight and then trimmed around the window. I ran some kraft cardstock with a Tim Holtz Alterations brick embossing folder through my Gemini Junior die cutting maching to create the background, and then adhered the window panel to it. I added a couple Impression Obsession die cut kitties and a Paper Smooches sentiment (half of the kitty convo) stamped in Memento Espresso Truffle ink.
I embellished the inside panel with a strip of leftover kraft cardstock and a sliver of stenciled window trimmed from the front panel. I stamped the other half of the kitty conversation and added another cat die cut.
Here’s one more look… loving the texture! What a fun card! ;)
