Happy Birthday Pretty Kitty

Today I thought I would combine the Pretty Kitty stamp set with the Balloon Celebrations to make a birthday card.

  • This happy, laughing kitty was coloured with a blender pen and Soft Suede ink.  The ribbon was coloured Calypso Coral.  It was then cut out and set aside while I made the balloons and the card base which was Calypso Coral layered with embossed Whisper White.  On the left side a strip of Cherry on Top DSP (retired) was attached. A piece of Calypso Coral cardstock was attached over the edge.
  • The 3 balloons were stamped on a separate piece of Whisper White cardstock using two step stamping.  The outer balloon was stamped with Black Memento; the texture with  Calypso Coral. and  punched out using the Balloon Builder punch.
  • They were clustered to the Whisper White layer which was embossed with the Gently Falling embosssing folder. The third balloon was adhered with dimensionals.
  • Because the background was already embossed, the strings coming from the balloons were hand drawn down to the kitty were was applied below them as if suspended in air.
  • Three clouds were punched using the Cupcake builder punch, the edges sponged with Marina Mist cardstock and applied randomly around the kitty.
