My Favorite Things Stamping & Masking

Hello!

This is my third and final card for My Favorite Things Card Design Superstar Contest! This is my favorite card of the three! I love cats and love the Catitude stamp set!!

I wanted a swirl of kitties!! So I lightly drew in a swirl starting at the center, this line helped me keep the cats going in the direction of the swirl. Before I started stamping on my panel I first stamped the cats on a full sticky post it and fussy cut them out. As I stamped the cats on my panel I used the post it note cats to mask off what I had already stamped.

The next step was to color the cats. I wanted to keep them simple because there were so many!! So I went with a simple cartoon-like style of leaving some white space while coloring. To make sure I liked the style and colors I picked out I first stamped all the cats on a scrap piece and colored them first. I ended up liking the coloring so I figured I would use these cats on another project!

Next, I used MFT's faux washi tape die from Blue Prints #13 and die cut some purple card stock. I stamped and heat embossed the You Have the Right Cat-itude sentiment. Then I added it to my card base with foam tape. Last I added a wood heart and three bronze sequins!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
