Joy! Joy! Joy!

Hi there! Cathy here with a card using the adorable new Carol Kittens stamp set.
 
I wanted these little kitties wearing my favorite color, 
so I went with a non-traditional color scheme on this one.
I started by die-cutting a piece of watercolor cardstock using a stitched rectangle die from MFT. I stamped and masked the kittens and inked a soft background using Angel Pink Memento ink and a cloud stencil.
 
I stamped the Joy sentiment from this set in Versamark and heat embossed with white embossing powder to give them a snowy look. To make them stand out a little bit, I traced around the letters with a gray colored pencil.
 
I colored the kittens with Prismacolor pencils and then cut a straight line on each side and fussy cut around the bottom of them.
I die-cut a patterned paper using the same stitched rectangle die and then adhered the watercolor piece to the top.
 
To finish it off, I stamped a Lawn Fawn banner stamp on a teal watercolor patterned paper, fussy cut around it and matted it on black cardstock. The "TO THE WORLD" stamp in the Carol Kittens set fit perfectly inside this banner!
 
I heat embossed the sentiment in WOW! Long Island Teal embossing powder. It's got a nice sparkle to it and hint of gold.
 
These kittens are too cute, but I'll bet they sound terrible!
 
Hope you enjoyed and see you soon!
 
Cathy
