It was nice taking a week off from blogging last week, but now I am armed with some new things, new cards, new products to tell you about, so I'd better get going!
This card is made from all NEW products at the store. :) First I stamped the ADORABLE little kitty cat stamp from Hero Arts in black ink (this is a new 2008 clear stamp set that is just too cute!). Then I colored her in with my Copic Markers. I even added her little stripes with my copics. I cut her out with my oval cutter and mounted her on an oval scalloped punch.
Then I cut my patterned papers by American Crafts into little strips and laid them out on my Bazzill cardstock. The ribbon strip is from American Crafts as well and both are available in the January 2008 Life's a Party kit. I added a little Junkitz felt flower and Junkitz bling, also available in the Life's a Party kit. Next is that awesome little arrow. Isn't it just too cute? It's the new Tim Holtz Grungeboard Elements in little dots. I took my ink pad and did direct to ink and inked it all up. I then took my black Copic marker and colored the edges. Last was the little sentiment stamp which is also a new Hero Arts 2008 clear stamp release.
I recently found a cool card layout blog that I used for the inspiration for this card. The Sheetload of Cards blog has new card ideas each month, which is similar to the One Sheet Wonder. They give you layouts for cards using limited number of patterned paper and cardstock, and help you crank out a bunch of cards using that limited supply. I made 24 cards using their method using 4 different layouts and 6 of each card. I have more cards inspired by them for you this week!
I hope you all had a wonderful 2007 and I wish you a very Happy New Year for 2008!
