Yay for Catcakes - Stampin' Up! Best Day

   Only a short time left to order the Best Day stamp set with this adorable "catcake".  Well that's what I'm calling a cat in a cupcake liner!  My stampers made this design in class this week and they all got a kick out coloring their catcake in different colors to match the cats in their lives.  I had my whole collection of neutral blends available for them to choose from so we had a lot of different kitties.

  We started with this on with a nice bright base in Parakeet Party, then a layer of Tahitian Tide.  We used a piece of Basic White and stamped the cat in Basic Gray, then stamped just the cupcake liner again onto a piece of Butterfly Kisses DSP in a small polka dot pattern.  

  The cat is colored with Blends markers and then the dots on the cupcake liner are colored in with the dark Parakeet Party Blends and then fussy cut and glued to the image.

  Using a blending brush we lightly added Parakeet Party ink to the side of the cat and stamped some streamers over the top in the same color ink.

  The letters are created with the Alphabet a la Mode dies.  We colored a piece of cardstock with Tahitian Tide Blends in a gradient ombre leaving the very top of the cardstock white then added the square to a piece of Foam Adhesive Sheet (you can find it on page 138 of the 2023-24 Annual catalog or page 127 of the soon to be retired catalog).

  The Alphabet a la Mode dies will cut right through the cardstock and foam and make it really easy to create popped up words for your cards.  Once the letters were cut out we just peeled the backing off and added them to the card front.  We used a pastel adhesive-backed sequin for the dot on the exclamation point for some sparkle.

  A bit of Metallic Woven ribbon tied to the corner is the last touch before adhering the panel to the card front dimensionals.

  Check out my ONLINE STORE if you'd like to order any of the products used on this card.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
