Hello from The Magenta Tiger,

I’m back in business! I’ve been suffering from a severe bout of ‘crafters block’ … this lack of creativity has been driving me crazy! But alas, ‘CASEING THE CATTY Challenge 119‘ to the rescue! This weeks challenge is inspired by the Sale-a-bration Catalogue, pages 16-19. I’ve chosen to stamp with my ‘Hey, Chick’ Stamp Set.

I’ve cased the ‘Thanks’ card at the top right hand corner of page 16. 

I’ve watercolored my Chicken with unconventional colours: Island Indigo, Rich Razzleberry and Melon Mambo with a hint of Copper. This Chicken is a SUPER cutie-pie!

Here is my card :

HOW DID I MAKE THIS CARD?

  • Card Base: Rich Razzlebery Cardstock (15.0 cm x 21.0cm)  
  • Layer 1: Sweet Sugarplum Yardstick (9.2cm x 13.0cm )
    • Run though the Big Shot in my most favourite Textured Embossing Folder ‘Large Polka Dot’
    • Wrapped Copper Thread around the cardstock 9 times horizontally 
  • Square 1: Watercolour Paper 2 – 5/8″ ‘Stitched’ Square cut from the Stitched Shapes Framelits
  • Square 2: Rich Razzleberry Cardstock  2 – 3/8″ Square from the layering Squares Framelits
  • Square 3: Watercolour Paper 2 – 1/8″ ‘Stitched’ Square from the Stitched Shapes Framelits
    • I prepared the paper with the embossing buddy. It prevents extra embossing powder from sticking to the paper
    • I’ve stamped the chicken in Versamark Ink,  added Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heated with the Heat Tool
    • I’ve watercolored the Chicken in unconventional colours: Island Indigo, Rich Razzleberry, Melon Mambo. The Grass is Cucumber Crush and Delightful Dijon.
  • Sentiment: ‘THANKS’ from the ‘One Big Meaning’ Stamp Set.
    • I used my Stamp-a-ma Jig and a post-it note as I only wanted to use the ‘thanks’ from the Stamp ‘one tiny word with one big meaning, thanks’. 
    • Prepped with the embossing buddy and stamped the sentiment in Versamark Ink,  added Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heated with the Heat Tool
    • Banner: Right end punched with the Banner Triple Punch, Left end cut with one of the Square Stitched Shapes 
  • Glue: Assemble with the Adhesive of your Choice: Snail Adhesive, Glue Dots or Fast Fuse

Happy Crafting! Love Fiona xxx
