Carolling Kittens with Jessica


Hi everyone! It’s Jessica Mcafee, I'm so excited to be back! Today's card features Carol Kitten and Spectrum Noir TriBlend markers. You can check out the full video tutorial here.

Let’s dive right in. I started by stamping the main images using the Misti and Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. We adopted two kittens last year and of course, that means I need ALL the cat stamps. Two of these cuties are modelled after ours, I find the Brown Grey Blend is a perfect match. 


I tend to gravitate to non-traditional Christmas colours and I decided on the Blue Turquoise blend for the matching winter scarves. I wanted an aged look for the music sheets and used the lightest tone from the Tan Blend and smoothed out any harsh lines with my Blender pen. 



I love the knit sweater effect and pulled out a cozy background stamp from my collection. 
For added detail, I pulled out an edge die from my stash and ran it through my die cutting machine.  

To finish off the card I added coordinating sequins, 3D Foam tape for dimension and a "Happy Holiday" die-cut sentiment. Thank you so much for stopping in!
