Rainbow background Cat card for Kylie's Demonstrator Training Blog Hop May 2019


Thanks for stopping by my blog today for another blog hop with Stampin' Up Demonstrators from around the world who are part of Kylie's Demonstrator Training group.

Here's my card:

I was creating cards for my card class this week using the fun set Nine Lives, which has two-step stamps of the cat and different markings, along with cute greetings and cat paraphinalia.

The rainbow background for the card was created using off-cut strips of cardstock that had been accumulating in my scraps tub. I cut a 13.8cm x 9.5cm piece of cardstock (I used an old retired colour I can't even remember the name of) and covered one side with an adhesive sheet. I removed the paper backing to reveal the sticky side, then I started from the bottom and worked my way up, laying down the strips in (sort of) rainbow order. When that was completely covered I trimmed off the overhanging bits with scissors. Then I put the 3 images of the mouse, ball of yarn and Meow! together on a block and stamped them with Versamark ink. I sprinkled white embossing powder over and heat set with my heat tool. I then flicked a bit of White Craft Ink refill (diluted with water) on the panel for some splatter effects.

For the greeting I created a rainbow stamp pad using one of the retiring Uninked Spectrum stamp pads and stamped the greeting onto a stitched circle of Whisper White.

I'm very happy with how this came out, what do you think?

Here is a list of everyone joining in the hop today, so grab a cuppa and have a look around to see what everyone has come up with.
