Exciting News!


Today i have exciting news to share with you today! I'm excited announce that i have joined the Art Impressions Design Team!! The ladies there are very talented and i am so looking forward to working them and showcasing these stamps!!

I am also submitting this tag Simon Says Stamp Wednesday - Anything Goes Challenge and to Darnell's NBUS #4 Challenge (this is the first time these little kitties are seeing ink!).

To celebrate i made a little tag using one of the new 2015 Front & Backs cling stamps, Purr-thday! I started by die cutting a tag from white card stock. The inside rectangle comes out and i stamped the front of the kitties along the bottom. I colored the kitties with Copic markers, then i cut them out.

With the left over, i flipped over and pressed it against the back of the cats, then trimmed off the extra. This way i can hide the messy back of the cats. I adhered the tag to a piece of acetate, then added the colored cats in the window.

Next i cut the tag again and adhered it to the back of the first tag, to hide the adhesive holding the acetate. Then i added the plain backing that i cut to match the cats.

I inked up the sentiment that comes with the set and stamped it on the small back piece. Then i added some black ribbon and twine. Of course i got a text finger print smudge on the back so i had to add some enamel dots!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I look forward to sharing my Art Impressions creations with you!!
