Yoga Kittens of Friendship!

Hi friends! When I saw brads of cats doing yoga in the Eyelet Outlet booth at a stamp show a couple of years ago I had to get them. I just knew they would be purrfect on a project one day. Today, my friend, is that day.

I also loved this cat stamp the minute I saw it at the Technique Junkies booth. For this card we will stamp and color right on the cardbase and I’ll show you how you can add a clever background to your one layer card with washi tape which is great if you enjoy collecting the little rolls of sunshine as much as I do! Washi tape has pretty much replaced ribbons on my card and I think it is a good substitute for pattern paper too!

I hope you try this washi tape trick on a card soon! Til next time happy crafting!

Who wants to win stamps and make an easy card?

Today I have a limited supply project and a giveaway! You can win the stamps by ArtNeko I used to make this card:

I considered editing down this video to make it about 5 minutes. I thought who needs a 17 minute long video on making such a simple card. I watched the video looking for spots to chop but every bit I though of chopping contained a tip that someone might find useful so if it feels too long feel free to skip ahead or watch it is double speed (click the gear at the bottom to speed it up) I figure it is better to leave the extras in for those who want them.

Supplies:

  1. Art Neko Sympathy stamp & Framed Plum Blossom stamp (use coupon code Lindsay10% for a 10% discount of non-sale rubber!)
  2. Archival Ink
  3. Spectrum Aqua Markers and Tombow Blender Pen
  4. Hot Press Watercolor Paper
  5. Cardstock (kraft) and pattern paper scrap
  6. Grosgrain Ribbon
  7. Adhesive (ATG and hot glue)

Note about the Bow Making Tool, I was having some technical issues on my shophandmade store where I sold the Bow Making Jigs my hubby made, if you would like to order one you can send me an email at artstudiosofbangor@yahoo.com and put “bow making jig order” in the subject line and I can send you a PayPal invoice. The Jigs are $20 plus shipping ($6 US Priority Mail, $16 international first class) and handcrafted from beautiful, durable hardwood.

I hope you found the tutorial on blending and all the random tips useful! If you want to win the stamps I used simply leave a comment below, I will draw a winner at random in one week (3/31/15) and this giveaway is open to everyone on the planet!  Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
