Happy Heart Kitties (Magenta stamp)

Hi, everyone! Today I am sharing a love card!  The cute stamp is called Purrfect Pair of Cats from Magenta, and I heat-embossed it in black and doodled some faux stitching around the edge.  It is die-cut with Spellbinders Deckled Rectangles - Large. I added a large red heart gem and a die-cut Happy (Tattered Lace) in silver glitter cardstock.

Let me tell you about the inky background I created! I used alcohol inks on embossed tinfoil.  I got the idea from crafty friend, Linda Kupstas. Colours used were Wild Plum, Red Pepper, Cranberry, Currant, and Silver Mixative.  The embossing folder is Cuttlebug Heart Blocks.  I mounted the inky embossed tinfoil panel on black and plum cardstock.

  12. Your card is fantastic and I love the image. The background looks fabulous too (what a great idea to use tin foil). SO glad you share it with us for the Scrapy Land Challenge.

  13. Kitty, fantastic idea - I had not even considered AI's when this Challenge was announced to the DT - GREAT use of SPLAT - and such a beautiful card - I especially like the tin foil atop the cardstock. Did you adhere the foil to cardstock before running it through the embossing folder, or just do the foil all by itself?

    Now for my other hat: Thanks for playing in the Scrapy Land Challenge using die cuts! I hope to see more of your pretty projects in the next challenge, too! hugs and blessings, de {Creative Smiles}
