Hello Kitty!

Tuesday, November 8, 2011

It's the Teapotter's Challenge and the Color Challenge over at Splitcoast today. Our cards are headed to Jane and John. Sadly, John is suffering from Stage 4 cancer and Jane has some health issues too, so we're sending them some love. And, I've used the MOJO214 sketch for the layout.

This card starts out with a standard A2 card base in Crumb Cake (Kraft). Next comes a layer of Cajun Craze, followed by a layer of designer paper that's been sponged lightly with Tempting Turquoise.

Next comes a Spellbinder's Lacy Circle in Cajun Craze topped by another piece of designer paper that's been dry embossed and sponged with Tempting Turquoise. On top of that is a hand-cut banner that's again designer paper layered over a Cajun Craze.

The focal point panel is cut with a Spellbinder's Labels Three die. It's an adorable digi stamp from Justinklined that has been colored with Copics. The sentiment was simply stamped to the right of the image. I didn't want this panel layered over the next largest label...it was simply too big for the design. So, I traced the outline of the same size die and cut it out by hand.

The seam binding bow has been hand-dyed with Tempting Turquoise and then heat set. It's topped with a die cut button (two layers). I've tied some linen thread through the top part of the button and popped it up on a dimensional over the bottom layer.

Paper: X-Press It Copic Blending paper, Stampin' Up! Cajun Craze and Crumb Cake, and My Mind's Eye Away We Go designer paper
Ink: Stampin' Up! Tempting Turquoise, Memento Tuxedo Black
Image: King of Siam by Justinklined and unknown sentiment stamp
