Purrrr-fect Birthday

Hello friends - thank you for all of your visits and the lovely comments you leave me, I love knowing you have been and appreciate you taking the time to leave the encouragement that you do!  I have something adorable to share with you today - how gorgeous is this little kitten from the 3D line of Spellbinders Stamps - as a friend of mine would say #totesadorbs! LOL!

The kitten is the Christmas Kitten Holiday 3D Shading Stamp and they really are as easy as they say to use.  I have stamped the image using Imagine Crafts Memento Ink in Expresso Truffle, lightly adding some colour on the ribbon, ornament and eyes.  It has been fussy cut/hand cut using scissors - a very easy task with this image.

The pink card base has been cut/embossed using the A2 Curved Matting Basics B Card Creator Etched Dies  #7 (#1 being the smallest).  The card stock has been folded in the centre and the fold line placed inside the cutting edge on the A2 Curved Matting Basics B, to form the card base.  White card has been cut using A2 Matting Basics A Card Creator #6 (#1 being the smallest).

The centre of the white card has been sponged using Imagine Radiant Neon's in Electric Yellow, Electric Pink and Electric Orange and stamped with a diamond background stamp and Teal Zeal ink onto the sponged area, along with a post mark on Rhubarb Stalk. The image has been popped up onto the lower portion of the sponged land stamped layer using  Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam squares.  A computer generated sentiment, Washi Tape and sequins have been added.  This layer has been popped up into the card base using  Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam squares.  So very quick and easy - don't you agree.  I think I will be using this stamp for more than Christmas cards - it is suitable for so many occasions!
